USE OF RESTRAINTS IN THE COURTROOM

We live in a court culture where the tail wags the dog. The Judge controls the courtroom, not the police. Thank goodness for Judges like Justice Schreck who recognize and correct this. Now let’s see if the police respect judicial authority or not. ” The practice in this jurisdiction of keeping all in-custody accused in handcuffs unless and until an order is made to remove them is, in my view, contrary to law and should be discontinued.”

CanLII – 2015 ONCJ 116 (CanLII).
