Sheriff's Deputy turned TV Bailiff Rusty Burrell has died. I had no idea he was involved in the Charles Manson & Patty Hearst trials.

Indeed, Rusty gets a passing mention in "Helter Skelter", Vincent Bugliosi's massive recounting of the Tate-LaBianca murders and trials.

(The book came out when I was in 4th grade. I used to take it to school to read during lunch until I was asked not to.)

Shit, I picked Doug Llewelyn in the deadpool. My favorite People's Court moment was the episode where a guy was taking his housemate to court for eating his goldfish named "lucky" during a party. Rusty couldn't keep a straight face. Looks like the story was faked.

Damn, this guy was the Elvis Presley of Bailiffs.

To what deity does one address prayers for the brutal murder of another human being?
