Wow, I had no idea this went on, A judge ordered an 8 second 50,000 volt shock on a person standing trial 3 times because he refused to answer questions. The US is a really weird place at the moment

    Grrr, people quoting high voltages as if that means it was a really big shock.

    That judge is not that much of a bright spark, but me, I'm grounded.

    I'm stunned.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Really? Seriously I have to question whether they're wired right over there. They have crazy ideas of justice. Sparking him just for not answering questions. Isn't that their constitutional right to keep quiet?

    BTW I didn't read the link, what was he charged for?
