Michigan Judge Tells A Convicted Killer, “I Hope You Die In Jail.” [Video]
Judge John McBain had heard enough after a woman convicted of killing her boyfriend, laughed at the victims family during an emotional statement in the courtroom.
Camia Gamet had spent the entire trial and sentencing period disrespecting the courtroom and family of the victim. The tipping point came when she interrupted the victims aunt during her statement, asking, “Is that it?”
Judge McBain lost it.
He raised his voice and told Gamet that he agreed with the family, and that he hoped she died in jail. He went on to say that if Michigan allowed capital punishment, that she would be getting the chair.
The courtroom erupted in applause after the outburst from the judge, but some people thought he crossed the line. Watch the video of the exchange and let us know what you think.
