Popularity in Courtrooms Count
“It sounds really stupid, but popularity counts in courtrooms. It is very important that people show up in person to these hearings to show support for the safety of the accused…The lawyers I interviewed … said that judges do not like being watched… and if you show they are being watched, they behave differently….pack that courtroom with family and friends to make the judge know he/she will be watched every step of the way. Lawyers I talked to on this also said it was important to pack the courtroom to humanize the accused past an identity solely reliant on the accused crime. In court, they automatically label the plaintiff the "victim," etc. and it is very manipulative language use.”
