Fla. Woman Jailed After Flipping off Judge During Court Hearing
National Geographic ^ | February 5

Posted on 02/06/2013 4:35:54 PM PST by nickcarraway

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.

Greg Gutfeld on the Five today was lamenting the fact that we adults are prohibited from applying beat-downs to wise-ass teens when such actions are appropriate, and needed. This Soto chick is a prime example of the upshot ... no respect, and no clue disrespect could possibly have consequences. The video of the judge setting her straight is nearly as entertaining as that mother from hell being tased in Atlanta.

I wonder, somewhat sadly, if her attitude will improve any when her sorry smart @ss is violently sexually assaulted by the massive bull dykes she’s going to inevitably mouth off to during her visit to the “grown up day care center”?

You don’t pull on Superman’s cape, you don’t spit into the wind. You don’t pull the mask of the old Lone Ranger and you don’t flip off someone who can send you to jail any time he wants.

my kids use their manners, yes sir no mam etc, they open doors for others and my oldest wanted marine recon or Navy seals but alas after this feces loving agenda fairy he won;t be going there .

My daughter wants to be a judge and my other kids are all doing well but my daughter saw this and she is 11 , nearly 12 and she was disgusted by what she saw.

There in lies the problem, the many youth today have crap parents, they are taught nothing, not even the basics of saying sir to a judge and they all think they deserve everything they want, remember the black woman saying about the obama phone or the other woman saying how her gas, her bills will bepaid for now their messiah is in power etc.

We hear about guns but guns are not the problem, we had toy guns and started to shoot each other in cowboys and indians, it is the society today what is the problem.

The radical lunatic left have been trying to destroy the traditional family since the 20’s, for some reason they hate the family and this is what we now see from their agenda.

Sick , weird, mentally screwed up people with no manners, no work ethic, parents who want the schools to raise their kids and pay for their food, they want Govt to help them live.

Well good for this judge and I hope my daughter does become a judge because today we really need decent judges and not radical activist liberal socialist homosexual judges.

To the left who troll this site, .

You have helped to destroy America, you are now see your chickens come home to roost.

To our side like Hannity , Rove and the rest of the elitist establishment,. You should hang your heads in shame for not standing up for social issues, instead you remain cowards on this issue whether it be homosexuality to just telling grown ups to raise their children by themselves

I wouldn't be sad about that particular stay, mate -it's only jail time. Now if she was going to prison, then your concern would be more well-founded, but other than the monetary fine her only other concern now is for all the days of boredom she will be undergoing.

That, and paying her mother for the missed month's rent along with trying to explain her absence at the Piercing Parlour afterward would be something she will be considering for awhile.

Gutfeld is funny as hell. Who else would propose opening a gay bar next to the ground zero mosque called “suspicious packages”. C’mon. That’s funny. And really, lighten up, Francis.

Someone else learns the truth of the old saying When you get in a power struggle with a judge, he got the power and you got the struggle.

How about searching on the word “judge” in the title, and then asking the mods to trash this duplicate thread in triplicate?

I searched, “judge,” “flipping off,” and the whole title. I’ve posted things before that were posted multiple times after.

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.

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.

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!

The judge seems like a stand up guy. Probably a Conservative. I wonder why CBS news saw fit to not publish his name? Probably because he is a Conservative.

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.
