Some justice system observers might conclude that many aspects of life in criminal court would be much easier if we could only keep the defendants out of the courtroom. We wouldn't have to shake their hands; we wouldn't have to look at them when setting bond; we wouldn't have to listen to them speak, or address them in person; we wouldn't have to deal with their loved ones in court; we wouldn't have to acknowledge the obvious reality that 60 percent to 70 percent of all criminal defendants are minorities.
