    And if anyone else had done this, they would be!

    He drew a pistol in court & belittled a witness who was testifying.
    I see a mistrial & new judge coming on...

    A North Georgia judge is being investigated after pulling out a handgun in court to prove a point while a witness was testifying in a rape case,The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
    ... Superior Court Judge David Barrett told the witness that she might as well shoot her lawyer because she was “killing her case.” He pretended to offer her his handgun before prosecutor Jeff Langley told the judge the move was inappropriate...

    I can't understand how it is he hasn't been pulled from the bench and charged with something - brandishing at a minimum, right? If anyone else had pulled a gun they would've probably been shot and yet this man is gonna get away with it. Shameful

    According to O.C.G.A. § 16-11-102
    Pointing or aiming gun or pistol at another
    A person is guilty of a misdemeanor when he intentionally and without legal justification points or aims a gun or pistol at another, whether the gun or pistol is loaded or unloaded.

    Offering a gun to another does not constitute brandishing. It's stupid beyond measure and entirely inappropriate, but not illegal.
