Puppet's Court

(YouTube link)

Former county commissioner Jimmy Dimora is on trial in Akron, Ohio, for corruption. Channel 19 is covering the trial, but are not allowed to take cameras into the federal courtroom. So they did the next best thing -or some would call a better thing- and recreated the court scenes using puppets! This video is day two. You can also see day one at WOIO. Link -via Fark

This is absolutely brilliant. It serves the purpose of mocking the practice in Federal Courts of keeping cameras out of the courtrooms. (I do approve of the practice, but there are opposing views.)
It serves to show viewers a part of what is going on in court.
My best guess is that the peanut gallery in the courtroom is more full than usual because the Puppet Court is stirring interest in the trial.
Think how far you guys could go with this? Do a Puppet Supreme Court! Show Scalia nastily interrupting, show Sotomayor's unending questions. Show Clarence as a puppet with a mouth sown shut like the weave on a football. This is absolutely brilliant!
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
