The -- -- -- of making a joke of our justice system the self proclaimed mastermind of the 9/11 attacks acting up during this -- corp for seedings at gitmo.
And his victims had to watch now.
To make a mockery of our court system.
And we bend over backwards to accommodate them why I don't know you've seen in many in many cases where a defendant is not cooperating the judge would need to get them sometimes remove them from the courtroom in the proceedings continue.
We don't do this.
So what can we do to get these proceedings back on track Fox News legal analyst Peter Johnson junior.
Joins me live now with his -- good morning TP.
Good morning how are you you know in the in in a colloquial sense it's easily done you say to these folks sit down.
Shut up behave or we're gonna put you out of the courtroom.
Now I know it sounds harsh but under the military commissions act if someone and accused is interrupting the proceedings.
-- disrupting the proceedings.
They may be excluded.
Under the military commissions act meeting.
That they can be put out of the room put into another room they can watch the proceedings on video have a telephone there to speak to their lawyer.
And the proceedings can go forward without this so called circuit -- in any court in the United States.
They would not have allowed this to go on for thirteen hours -- -- why didn't this judge set the precedent early on that he was not gonna tolerate this behavior I don't think the judge will tolerate going forward I think that they have an opportunity.
To act consistent with the military commission.
And to act with the dignity of any defended.
But when you have people making Paper airplanes.
When you haven't taunting family members when you have -- standing up when you haven't passing -- magazines and reading magazines when you have been feigning sleep.
When you have -- refusing to answer questions of the presiding officer at that military commission trial.
Then there's a point at which it stops and you say.
The united states military commission system.
He's not going to be made a mockery but again -- -- -- thirteen outweighs -- -- -- -- I mean it it could could anyone conclude from this that they didn't want to offend the Muslims in the room I I think there's probably a sensitivity.
Because the world is watching and when you have one of the defense counsel really outrageously demanding.
That the other women in the courtroom.
Where Muslim attire so as not to offend.
The defendants in this case I find that the -- it's absolutely incredible.
To me the United States a little out of control on on at least the first day I wanna read the military commissions act statue -- used may be excluded.
From attending portions of the proceeding.
If the military judge determines that the accused persists in destructive or dangerous conduct what -- -- -- five defense have to do.
To convince the judge that they're being destructive I believe that.
At the next hearing in June if there is this same type of disruptive conduct.
That they will either be.
And I gagged in some way which is appropriate literally gagged.
That -- be restrained in some -- one of the defendants was restrained for a time.
But if it persists.
Then they will be put into another room and allowed to watch it.
On video that's the only.
Appropriate thing that should be done -- that should be done.
We can't put up with this nonsense I agree anymore but I bet there's no way they'll -- these people for the rest of the world to see that maybe a separate room separate room.
We don't need this help and our victims don't need this in the world doesn't need it well -- I think it doesn't junior have a great to see you.
