    Defendent spits at and repeatedly threatens to kill his judge during his trial

    A man has talked himself into nearly two years in jail after threatening to kill a Shelby County, Tenn., criminal court judge.
    Joshua Beadle has been held in contempt and sentenced to 10 days per word after a judge ordered him to stop the threatening comments.

    Judge Lee Coffee stopped counting at 70 words and sentenced Beadle to 700 days in jail.

    Beadle was shackled and outfitted in a special hooded spit mask during the hearing Monday after spitting at the judge at a hearing in January. Beadle missed the judge and instead hit a clerk's computer.

    Through his nylon-and-mesh spit mask, he apologized to the clerk on Monday and assured her that his intended target was the judge.

    Beadle was appearing in court on burglary and rape charges.

    Great, wanna bet what his goal will be when he gets out? Hes already a rapist and burglar, might as well add murder on there. Scum.

    I've been threatened by an inmate for turning him in for a 10 year additional charge, and a friend of mine has had to have a U.S. marshall detail live with him/be with his kids at school and school events, etc..

    Bottom line, there oughta be something you can do to these scum. A felon who threatens someone should be able to be convicted of the charge as if they did it. In other words, a convicted felon who says "I'm gonna kill you" should be convicted as if he really did murder someone.

    Or maybe you can allow threatened victims to off them without sanction.

    Throw away the key. Some people just have nothing to contribute to society, so why bother letting them out.
