I attended court yesterday to plead guilty for running a red light. I wore shorts to court lol the bailiff said you can't wear shorts in here. I apologized and he said to wait outside, not 2 seconds after saying this, he ask me how many times we would have to go over this? I said excuse me? He said you were in here 2 weeks ago and I told you about your shorts. I said no I wasn't you have me confused with someone else. He said no I don't, I told you about this already, again I said no you didn't and I added but thanks for making me look like an idiot in front of all these people. He didn't like this. So I went outside and sat down. The secretary came out and notice I was wearing shorts ask me about it, so I started to tell her the story. I was calm cool collected. I wasn't 10 words into my story when the bailiff came out threatening me with contemp. But I stood my ground and made him look like a jerk that he was. He had no right to start an arguement with me as I was not in there 2 weeks ago. He clearly had me confused with someone else. He got in my face told me to shut my mouth and to listen to him when he was speaking! When he was finished telling me that I was in there 2 weeks earlier being rude to the court and how he told me I was told about my shorts, it was my turn to talk. So I told him he started an arguement with me in the courtroom and when he falsely accused me I spoke up. He didn't like that, as he is a person in power or so he thinks, he doesn't like when someone questions him or stands up for themselves when he makes a mistake. Then he got right in my face and said this is your last warning, if you don't stop your going to jail. I said for what? Defending myself? I said you are violating my civil rights. He said then get a lawyer. I told him I don't need one! So I told him that I had been in there 2 month earlier and it was for a speeding ticket. Then he said I remember you now, your the guy calling in complaining about cops speeding, causing trouble.( Not just speeding mind you, 90 in a 35 without any lights or sirens on, on 4 different occasions) so making complaints about cops breaking the law is causing trouble I asked? I said so this is why your acting this way towards me then? He did not like this adding I was now being warned a third time for contemp. Even pulling out his cuffs to look more intimidating. I said you can arrest me but I didn't do anything wrong and you know it, I feel your treating me this way because I complained about cops speeding and because I stood up to you when you tried to act big in the court room abusing your authority even having a smirk on your face like you liked calling me out. He got in my face and said do I understand him and I said I didn't do anything wrong. I said I would like to be left alone now, am I free to go? Cops hate when you know your rights. They really hate it. Because they can't bully you if you know your rights. This makes them very angry. And it's ridiculous the way he acted. I am not going to back down from someone in "power" I am a citizen and I know my rights. Sorry Tado but I won this round, maybe next time you should hold your tongue before speaking. Oh and I called the station and complained about this too so please keep violating the law so I can bury you like you are trying to bury me. Suck it Tado!

I don't know him but you don't ever dress like a slob in court. Wear your Sunday best or what you might wear to a job interview. Judges take their courtroom seriously and want all to respect it. This is what I've always heard.

in all fairness i would have normally wore jeans, just wasn't thinking. I hardly looked like a "slob" lol! So fashion matters in court? My apologies to that. It is such a big deal in a court room, yet it's not the law any where else. Schools?(the way I was dressed is accepted in schools)Not even church! Unless you choose too there. But God likes you for you, but thats a different subject. They were white cargo shorts, length went past the knee, wore just below the waist with a belt, sorry have a bit a tummy don't like then that high, but my behind wasn't showing or just covered by my undies and shirt. I was also wearing a black T-shirt, a nice hat and flip flops. But discrimination doesn't apply here does it? I'd say that judging me on the way I dress is a little biased. In fact thats exactly how you come off Guest, just give it thought. Your saying I looked like a slob for wearing shorts yet you don't even know what I looked like. Do you like being judged on your appearance? Because your clothes do not hide who you are, they dont tell you how high of an IQ i have and neither does a badge. I cant be taking seriously in the land of freedom wearing shorts? That automatically makes me a bafoon, not to be taking seriously and on top of that made to look stupid in front of 25 other people? As what? an example? I dont take examples from people who are biased and disrespectful and i hope the other people in that court share my feelings also. In fact most smiled and nodded as they left the courtroom, some in shackles some leaving on their own free will. Respect comes from both sides, not just me showing them respect. It didn't have to be that big of deal, it equals to about the significance of spitting on the side walk. Mr. Tado made something small into a joke, with me at the center of it, because he knew my face. Not who I was, but he knew he didnt like me by my face. He also knew everyone person in that room was focused on us. His little smirk showing his arrogance, but when he realized I turned the joke on him it made him very angry, then when he further realized I was a "complainer" then he really didn't like me. In the end a woman came out and had me sign a piece of paper agreeing that I would pay them $350. Why didn't they just do that in the 1st place? Didnt even go in front of the judge. Would have been simple, or I could have just kept my mouth shut and obeyed my superior. That's how dictatorships begin. Thank you for your post, I enjoying debating and I mean no disrespect to you Guest. Just my opinion which we are both entitled to share.

It's like saying a person is uneducated because they don't use proper English in writing. If a person has something to say, no matter there grammar, they have the right to be heard. White, Brown, Foriegn, texters generation. Every page on this site makes biased remarks about this. When I was 7 I was made fun of for being in a special reading class. Some things haven't changed since grade school.

The one time I have ever went to court similar situation. I explained I have never been to court did not know the rules until I was told other wise. As I was told to go sit outside, until everyone else got done with their proceedings.

So you think you were showing respect, wearing shorts, flip-flops, and a hat into the courtroom? Those people weren't smiling at you, they were laughing at your ignorant a**. Nobody had to say or do a thing to make you look like a bafoon. You pretty well had that covered already. You sound like a real cry-baby, know-it-all, pr*ck!

I'm pro law enforcement all the way. That being said, I hate it that officer tado was so rude. It's ridiculous. From your post I gather that you seem to be a nice guy that wore a pair of nice shorts to court. Big deal. I've seen girls with their boobs hanging out and guys with their pants hanging down on their ass at City court. I dont think a pair of cargo shorts is a big deal. Officer Tado is a hot head with an anger problem. He's caused trouble for a lot of people including CGPD. He gives good officers a bad name. So I second your opinion, suck it Tado!

Wrong. I don't even know Tado. But Tado didn't start this crap. You did. Common sense would tell you that shorts, flip-flops, and a hat is not appropriate or respectful attire for a court appearance. Not too bright if your expecting the best outcome, but perfect if your goal is to invite some controversy and have something to rant about on Topix.

And for future reference, since you're a moron, that outfit wouldn't work well for a job interview either. Duh...

This shouldn't be a matter of what common sense would indicate but person's God given right to wear whatever they want within the socially accepted norm.(ie. not naked or overly offensive) Court should be a place were a person is judged on the offense they are accused of committing and the clothing they wear shouldn't be a factor. Behavior otherwise would indicate that your punishment could vary based upon how "nice" you look in court. And if influence in judgement occurred based on clothing, what do you think happens when people are brought into today's courtroom wearing an orange jumpsuit and leg irons?

Unfortunately, at some point in many people's lives, they find it necessary to stand up against unjust treatment from today's law enforcement Officer. To borrow a term from Police themselves, this behavior isn't going to be tolerated -- "Not Today".

Tado is ok. Hes very by the book and a "cops cop". You should have learned by now how to speak to an officer of the law. Say "yes sir" or "no sir" and go your merry way. BTW I thought everyone knew it was disrespectful to appear in any court, before ANY judge, if your hopeful of a good outcome for yourself, in crappy clothes. I was in court this AM myself and I saw people wearing t-shirts with vulgar sayings on them and most looking like they just stepped out of bed, hair uncombed, unwashed. I wondered what the heck they were thinking, but maybe society has just turned into a bunch of slobs.

Wouldn't work for a job interview? Yeah maybe at a law firm or if I was going to be a doctor! Lol listen I wore shorts a tshirt, this hat and Sneakers to a interview. I got hired. Its a high end restaurant. I make decent money as a cook. You see thats the difference between biased individuals like yourself and countless others that do nothing but judge people on style of clothing. This isn't 1950's America. J Edgar Hoover isnt here raping the constitution.( but others are lol) I started what? I defended myself and my image. That poor excuse for a cop tried to bully me and it backfired. He's to act in a polite, respectful manner when wearing that badge. He thought he would be slick and punk me, but it didn't work and it made him look like the fool! Because unlike people like you (who also are on topix looking for people to smash on) I don't care what people look like. My clothes don't define me. Why must I dress as you dress? Tradition is why! I'm me not you not your kid, pass your judgements on someone else. Your biased and pathetic. Nothing to see here, move along.

obey the law? You sound like a robot. I ran a stop light. so people who obey the law don't have to worry about cops acting unacceptable? But it's ok for criminals to be treated this way? Sorry I assumed you met criminal as in any infraction, even running a red light. You an idiot and are utterly clueless!
