She earned it. If you ask me the judge was surprisingly good tempered with her.
Back when I was a teenager (telegraph was still the main form of e-comm) my old daddy was a Hale County Deputy Sheriff.
If I had been busted for something, my old daddy would have been standing right next to me there before the court, and he would have been on a personal level with that judge.
If I had even thought about extending my middle finger at that man behind the bench, I would have been spitting Chiclets darn fast.
Ahhhh, the good old days.
On FRee Republic.
This isn't a cop or some other LEO who's abusing his authority beating on a suspect or carrying out an illegal search. This is a judge presiding over a bail hearing where there's no need for confrontation. All she has to do is be polite for 15 seconds and she can't even manage it. The woman is showing contempt for the court; it's clearly criminal contempt, and that means contempt for the people of Florida.
Like a previous poster so eloquently stated: "play stupid games, win stupid prizes."
