"Who the f--- is Kanye West," read Nneka Eneorji's black shirt, referring to the rap superstar who made headlines dissing hit singer Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Supreme Court Justice Thomas Farber demanded to know why she thought it was appropriate to wear that to court - eliciting a shrug from Eneorji.

"That is why I wore a sweater over it," the medical student said outside the courtroom. "I guess [the judge] couldn't take it anymore."

Only a few minutes after she was dismissed, Officer David London took the witness stand - offering testimony peppered with the f-word.

"I'm going to f---ing kill you," London said Walter Harvin, 30, screamed over and over as he tried to stop Harvin from entering his mother's W. 93rd St. building without a key.

London was caught on a surveillance camera striking Harvin dozens of times with a police baton during the July 2008 arrest.
