She earned it. If you ask me the judge was surprisingly good tempered with her.

If somebody flipped off you or me, they wouldn't get jailtime.

These judges that slap on extra time because somebody dared to disrespect their authority(!) look nothing but petty and small. He'd look like a much bigger man if he simply shrugged it off.

Obviously this girl is a piece of work, but judges aren't special or above the average citizen (although most of them seemingly think they are). They shouldn't be allowed such discretion in things such as things.

Saw the video on FNC earlier and I could not understand the judge! He sounded like an East European!

I don’t disagree with the judge but it’s been a long time since the judiciary in this country deserved any respect.

Governments of all branches and levels are earning less and less of my respect anymore. I know of a few police departments that are thugs, crooks, and tax collectors. Legislators are almost all socialists. The executive branches (save some Republican govenors) are corrupt favor factories.

Sigh......

I used to be mildly optimistic about American governance.

Well, it is time the adults took control and insisted on some self control. It is about respecting the institution, not necessarily the judge personally. I would have given her more time just for being an a$$....

“Soto, who was wearing an orange jail jumpsuit, about her assets,”

TTIWWP!

I was in court years ago in L.A. when a young kid, about 16, was up in front of the judge for driving his mom’s boyfriend’s car without a license. This constituted multiple offenses.

The judge asked him “How do you plead, guilty or not guilty?”

The kid, to his credit, had in the meanwhile gone out and gotten his license. He wanted to show the license to the Judge, and began mumbling, thrusting his hand forward.

The Judge, obviously clueing into what the kid was trying to do, said sternly “Guilty or not guilty?”

After about three times the kid reluctantly pleaded guilty.

The Judge then said, in an equally stern voice, “What’s that in your hand?” The kid immediately brightened up and said “Oh, I got my license!”.

After the Judge inspected it, and found it good, he fined the kid $11.00. He then asked the kid if he had it. The kid didn’t have it. So, in round two, the Judge said “Well, I have a nice warm jail”. The kid said “I can get it”, whereupon the Judge released him and gave him ‘till 4:00 p.m. to get the money to the clerk.

It was obvious that the Judge was impressed by the fact that the kid had gotten his license in the meantime, and cut him a whole lot of slack as a result. It was equally obvious that he wanted the kid to sweat a bit, so as to realize that this wasn’t nursery school.

Some people catch on, and some don’t.

The judge asked about her assets, probing into how much her jewelry was worth

Ya ever seen the inside of a courthouse in today's America?

They have more cash registers than a super walmart..

Too bad we all don't have the power of government judges, who can throw a tantrum and put people in cages for a month at a time because some young kid flipped um off.

The judge must be a real petty punk, or someone the other kids picked on in school.

My sympathies lie with the judge. There are a lot of stupid people out there who neither understand nor appreciate that they are in trouble, and the judge before them will determine how much trouble they are in.

A lot of them act like animals in front of the judge, playing with themselves, laughing, ignoring the judge and trying to converse with their friends in the gallery, throwing things, cursing, spitting, getting violent, threatening people, and the list just goes on and on.

It is no surprise that judges get very crusty about it.

So now this party girl will get 30 days, and when she comes back she had better be extra respectful or she will get another 30.

Just a couple of quick thoughts here;

1. When in court, it is not meant to be a humorous affair. It is quite serious.

2. Keep your opinions to yourself, whether verbal or gesticulated. Court is not interested in them nor in your wasting time with them. You want to waste your or anyone else's time, go find a soapbox and an alley to stand on to express them freely and expound upon whatever tickles your fancy. Not in court -that is not what they are there for. Just as you are a fool if you make unflattering comments or gestures to the man you are renting a room from and subsequently get tossed out of his house on your big fat keister for it, no one has any sympathy for your idiotic actions and the consequences thereby if you do.

3. Get caught and wind up in court because of it; time to pay the piper. Man up. Disparaging comments or flipping the bird is not going to cut it. Quite a few of the locales I came to know over the years you would be lucky to get away with just losing a finger over such an action, and anyone witnessing your stupidity would just shake their heads in disgust at you and walk away. Just in case such stupidity was contagious.
