Eye On Boise

Were his knees that bad?

A reporter for the Idaho Statesman was ejected from the courtroom by a guard on Tuesday and ordered to go home and change because he was wearing shorts – long walking shorts, but shorts nonetheless. The guard refused his offer to leave later and change clothes at the Al-Hussayen trial’s lunch break, forcing him instead to miss part of the proceedings.

Then, a couple of hours later, more than 20 high school students in shorts, tank tops and suggestive T-shirts filed in and filled the audience section of the courtroom. They were allowed to stay as long as they liked, without complaint.
