11. There is nothing funny about this

I don't think Lorne Michaels would allow that level of disrespect for the dead to be joked over.

17. It's the judge! He's denying justice for the victims. I think he deserves to

the satire treatment.

5. Happy Veterans Day!

Itís so nice they recognize veterans and in a federal courthouse I can see why itís done. Sad only one person was a veteran. Iím surprised they hold court today.

7. Yeah, but practical matters should govern when conducting a murder trial.

A judge shouldn't be giving the jury any subliminal bias towards or against any witness or person in the court.

If they wanted to applaud the guy before the jury got in, fine. But it's all business once the jury gets seated.

Also, minor quibble, but this is Wisconsin state court, not federal court.

9. You believe it relevant to the case

for a judge to instruct a jury to give applause to a defense witness, regardless of whether doing so engenders a lack of trust in the objectivity of the court we rely on to be objective at all costs?

13. He didn't know who would stand.

And everyone deserve an applause today for serving. It was a nice gesture and far to rare which is why itís even news sadly.

This is a mistrial.

16. He had no business interjecting that in the court.

I would bet he knew the witness was a veteran.
