he ends up actually falling because the bailiff goes and tries to save -- when he jumps over, falls on the bailiff's foot which may have saved his life in that particular instance so, you know, there are a lot of instances like that where we'll then talk to the person involved and say what were thinking? what were you feeling, et cetera. >> a lot of charged emotions in the courtrooms.
