Having a hard day? Well, read this item:

A French judge has been caught masturbating in court.
The un-named magistrate was seen masturbating in a court in Angouleme.
Three witnesses, a lawyer, a woman in the public gallery and a journalist, all reported seeing the act.
French newspaper Charente Libre, whose reporter was among the witnesses, said it happened as an attorney was pleading his case.
The witnesses confirmed they saw the judge raise his judicial gown, open his trousers and “perform unmistakable movements”.

Some judges believe in stiff punishments, I guess.
