Should DeLay Have the "Perp Walk"

According to CNN here, DeLay has to appear in Texas Court to answer to the charge against him.  The question is will he be escorted using a civilized manner, or will the State of Texas replicate a practice used by the feds of having the white collar accused facing a "perp walk."  The one benefit of giving DeLay the "perp walk" treatment is that he might see what faces individuals accused of crimes.  Perhaps it might provide some basis for change in the system if he is exonerated of this charge. For right now, CNN reports that Tom DeLay's attorneys are trying to "spare him the humiliation of being handcuffed, photographed and fingerprinted."
