Penelope Soto, a Florida woman, was jailed on Monday after flipping off a judge during her court hearing, CBS Miami reports.
Soto, 18, appeared in bond court for a drug possession hearing and laughed when the judge asked her if she was under the influence.
The judge told Soto, "We're not in a club, be serious about it." Soto said she was being serious.
He initially ordered Soto to be held on $5,000 bond, to which Soto laughed again and said, "Adios."
The judge summoned her back to the podium and increased her bond to $10,000. At that point, Soto stopped laughing.
"Are you serious?" Soto asked.
The judge replied, "I am serious. Adios."
Soto flipped him off and blurted an expletive as she walked away. The judge then ordered her held in contempt of court and sentenced her to 30 days in jail.
OK. You must think that posting the same story from another source is OK. Fine, some of us don’t.
Not that it's not newsworthy, mind, and I also have been guilty of re-posting a news story once so this is not intended as a flame. Just a quick note that it is already out there. O'Reilly even had it on just now as well -late to the party, but at least he mentioned it.
dont find him funny what so ever ,maybe he;s got better than when he first started I don’t know as I can;t watch that awful IMHO show.
Very well put
First tim I saw it posted
OK. I think perhaps I first watched the vid on Sunday afternoon or evening, but was too tired to post about it then. Look above this post for a couple of previous ones if you are interested.
Too right, mate, and while I have many personal problems with the courts and some LEOs, only the terminally brain-dead are stupid enough to tell some bloke carrying a firearm (or controlling someone else carrying one) to ‘sod off’ in one form or another.
Gutfeld is funny. Much funnier than those two d-bags on “The Comedy Channel”
I DVR “Red Eye” every night. Great Show.
“I wonder, somewhat sadly, if her attitude will improve any when her sorry smart @ss is violently sexually assaulted by the massive bull dykes shes going to inevitably mouth off to during her visit to the grown up day care center?”
There is a reason the phrase “live and learn” came to be. :-)
Well said. It's was always common for kids to do dumb stuff, but in the past they wised up quick when challenged.
But today, they feel entitled to do dumb stuff and flip off anyone they please. The dumb broad didn't even understand how stupid she was.
We need more judges like this to slap some sense into these feral kids.
If the kid was in fact on drugs, she is going to have quite a time in the next week or so. Drying out time!
I can think of today's RAT bastard socialist commie pig judges, of whom 90% of them including SCOTUS, deserve to be flipped off....and more than just flipping off IMO.
Egotistical, arrogant, filled with self-pride & vanity, they consider themselves to be filled with superior wisdom above the "subject masses" As far as I'm concerned, 90% don't even have enough wisdom or intelligence or common sense to rule on traffic parking violations, much less matters of life or death, or the Constitution of the U.S.
And no, I've never been in a court proceeding, so it's not sour grapes on my part. I just can't stand these evil, black-robed tyrant bastards, whether at a local level, state level, or federal level! Piss on 'em!
It was going so swell for her before the bird flip...she must have used some of those Xanax before court!
Just because Lindsey Lohan can get away with flipping off the Judge doesn't mean someone else can too!
Wow, Burl Ives, has really gotten old.
He is really funny. I’ve been in stitches on occasion. He once wondered aloud why, since the Westboro Baptists call what they do expressions of free speech, he (and we) can’t beat up the Westboro Baptists and call it performance art. It was late at night, but I was laughing so hard, I felt as if he and I were at happy hour.

Well, if anyone would know funny it would be Rodney Dangerfield!
