    Judge Finds Himself In Contempt Of Court.

    This is some thing all the law enforcements should be doing.

    Give that judge a rise for his honesty.
    You can refine anything in it's pure form to use for good or evil. This goes for everything, not just materials.

    Almost sounds like a self-esteem thing. "I find myself in contempt of myself."

    Michigan judge imposed a $25 contempt of court fine on himself after his cellphone made noise during closing arguments of a jury trial.

    "I'm guessing I bumped it. It started talking really loud, saying 'I can't understand you. Say something like Mom,'" he said. "My face got as red as a beet."

    Voet, who said the phone is new and he is still learning how to work it, said he decided to hold himself in contempt of court and fine himself $25 because he wouldn't accept excuses from anyone else whose phones caused disturbances in court.

    "If I cannot live by the rules that I enforce, then I have no business enforcing these rules," Voet said.
    This is exactly the kind of example we should be insisting our public officials set. Good for him!!
