It isn't often that a judge is attacked while presiding over a court proceeding. If such attacks do occur, there's rarely any video footage -- until now.

Melissa Hardwick was agitated even before she lunged for judge Jennifer Edward's neck during a juvenile court hearing on Wednesday (July 13). Mrs. Hardwick's ex-husband had dragged her into court for violating a previous court order. Despite the judge's warning that she would be placed in contempt of court, Hardwick continued her ranting.

So judge Edwards sentenced Hardwick to 10 days in jail -- and with a flick of her wrist, she dismissed Hardwick, telling her "Go now." That's when the upset mother sprang into action, leaping across the startled judge's bench at her.

"I've worked here for 31/2 years and this is the first time anything that serious has ever happened," said Wayne County security officer Adam Dodson, who got to Hartwick first and wrestled her to the floor.

Hardwick ended up with cuts and scratches on her face, and Dodson got a few pats on his back.

"I had to use the right amount of physical force to stop her actions," he said. "We're quite a bit prepared for next time."

    Once these lawyrs put those robes on and get sworn in, they think their arses are better than the other lawyers that they were just working with and litigating against.

    Those judges deserve crap like this. They take people's lives and into their hands and then act like it doesn't matter. This is why most of them hide before they go home, have armed guards, don't let mail go to their homes, etc. because of the way they treat people. You don't dismiss people as feel what they have to say or act as if their feelings do not matter.

    The judge told her to be quiet or she would be held in contempt and that heffa said I dont care so......neither did the guards when they tackled her to the ground.

    ...and around 5 PM when the story got quiet, I stood on the counter, grabbed the store microphone, said: "Hey Sasha! Fukk YOU! I QUIT!!" tore my shirt off, (wifebeater underneath), jumped off the counter, grabbed my purse and went out the door....

    @Fayla
    I've been with mine for 7 years and he's only 27 now and even I can see the difference between his stamina at 20-25 and how it's been since 26-27. He be a little more tired after 15 minutes now.

    Also- I heard a LONG time ago that the bigger the "steel" is, the quicker theyre stamina will decrease over the years and the harder it will become for them to achieve and maintain a full erection. They go flaccid earlier because of all the extra "weight."

    I can see a decline now....but I'm waiting to make my final analysis for another 5 years when he's around 32.... :coffee: #BuyingHimSomeCialisEarly
