Hey, at least the chicks at the prosecutor's table aren't giving them the Sharon Stone treatment. We do observe civilized limits.
One of the defendants had to be carried into the courtroom in a "restraint chair," which puts me in mind of the Elmore Leonard line about federal marshals who assisted a defendant in regaining his composure. Maybe blinkers would assist the composure of the others. But there probably are going to be lots of things about a capital murder trial that will be unavoidably painful.
