    reaction was one of someone with absolutely no authority whatsoever.  Many of us fail to do the right thing when events call upon us.  If you or I were in that room as an eye witness to the arrest, it is highly possible or even probable we wouldn't step in.  We may even think - "Hey arrest for false accusation doesn't sound right." but we may not interfere.  But she is a court official.  Her reaction is one of a mere bystander with absolutely no authority in the room whatsoever.  I think she must have some authority.  Even if not she has knowledge of the situation and familiarity with the court marshall and could have, should have done something.

    Very odd behavior.
