One Student Looks at
Our Criminal Justice System
Court Watching is one of over 35 service-learning oppor-
tunities in Project Community. Sites include Criminal Justice,
Health, Education, and Chemical Dependency. Steve
Schlussel, Fall '89 Court Watching student, shares his impres-
sions with us:
"The article we read on transference of our childhood ways to
how we act now was very simple, but also very interesting.
Our assignment to compare the map that we had drawn in our
heads about the courtroom and to compare that to what we've
seen so far was extremely intriguing, because my father was
an attorney during most of my impressionable years. From
him, I got a view of the lawyers being very forceful and organ-
ized, as well as very fluent in their language. I have seen six
different attorneys and only one remotely fits this description.
Some have been very disorganzied as well as almost 'wimpy.'
I also have been amazed at the fact that the attorneys (except
for the questioning sequences) seem also unprepared. An-
other location on my map is how I perceived courtroom
atmosphere. I never expected to be the only person watching
a court case. Don't these people have family or friends?"
"Another view of mine that has changed is what I think of the judge. I
always pictured the man behind the bench to be a towering force in
the courtroom, with his gavel clenched in his hand, there was no
doubt who ran the show. The judges I have encou'ntered are old,
tired looking men who seem to battle the Sandman to stay awake
during the cases. These judges seem to slump back into their big
black chairs rather than sit at the edge of them and peer out over the
room with watchful eyes. The jury is another picture that I had that
has been completely altered, if not erased. The jury in movies seem
to be fascinated and cling to every word that is spewed into the
courtroom air. They even show emotion (shock, laugh.) What have I
seen? Half-juries, bored jurors, jurors who look at every part of the
room but what's going on, and jurors who can't sit still. How can this
be? Have my dreams been shattered? No, but I know why movies
aren't real, because if they based a film on what went on in the
Washtenaw County Courthouse, everyone's ideas would be severely

When Tinsley Ellis was 14, he was
sitting in the front row at a B.B. King
concert in Miami Beach. King broke a
string on hislegendary guitar Lucille and
handed the string to Ellis. Fate sealed,
Ellis had no choice but to become a
blu guitarist himself. He is, and he still
has the string.
He was part of The Heartfixers, one of
the Southeast blues circuit's best bands,
dropping out of law school to play guitar
and i the band. Then he went
solo, needingto o hs own type of
music. He has developed a unique style
combining New Orleans style r&b,
James Brown rhythms, and a solid blues
foundation. His records are Georgia
Blue released in 1988 and Fannina the
Flames in 1989. He has turned up the
heat and "walks through life like he's car-
rying a can of gasoline and a lit match."
The British blues magazine Juke Blues
says there are three top white blues gui-
tarists in America today: Stevie Ray
Vaughan, Johnny Winter, and Tinsley
Ellis. Thafs a pretty impressive lineup.
Now you can see one third of the lineup
for yourself when Ellis comes to the U-
Club on Wednesday, February 14th at
9'30pm. It should be quite a show.
