I use to work in juvenile delinquency court a few years ago as a court reporter. I’m not going to talk about any cases, however hilarious they were sometimes, but I did mention a while ago that I wanted to talk about some of my co-workers. At juvy there was also dependency court on the other side of the building. That’s court for parents who have been bad and had their kids taken away.
Now to work in these courtooms a person has to develop some thick skin. The stories that come in are heartbreaking and sometimes the kids would be in the courtroom crying. I couldn’t always look. Sometimes I had to bite my tongue to distract myself. Luckily, I only worked in these courtooms once in a blue moon.
This is going to develop into another pro gay rights argument.
