    I thought he was a cool judge the first time, when he didn`t let that poo slide. Now I think he is even cooler for cutting her a break. She obviously got a lot of help from her lawyer, which she must not have had the first time around? Kids are stupid, but need to be held accountable, at the same time kids are stupid, and hopefully the learning experience helped her more than the severe punishments would have.

    I was relieved to see this. She admits that she was on Xanax in court that day she flipped the judge off. And after seeing her contrition, the judge exhibited some compassion and rescinded the rest of her jail time on condition that she enter a rehab program. All`s well that ends well. Let`s hope she`s learned a lot and can go forth and do great things after the treatment. =^.^=

    I have a feeling the judge wouldn`t have been so forgiving if this was a boy.
    Crocodile tears. He should have given her MORE time for the water works. That`s just my thought. I am a heartless bastard.

    Sooner or later you Yanks will realise your justice system is just a bad joke your politicians play on the rest of you dumb enough to not only put up with but pay for it. Until then, it`s just a weird side show for the Rest Of The World to shake its head at. When you`re sending a teenage girl off to the rape factories that are your prisons just for annoying some self-important arsehole that was goading her into reacting, and play the whole thing out on TV so the rest of your sick society can enjoy its Two Minutes Hate, there`s something pretty wrong with that. It`s almost enough to make you forget the big crimes like abduction, torture, murder and invasion committed by your government with your wilful disinterest and/or support. Almost, but not quite.

    @sqrlz: don`t you guys only waterboard people that can`t fight back? You`re less likely to be able to waterboard me than your government is to invade any country with nukes. Stick to bullying teenage girls (or better yet, watching judges do it on TV from the comfort of your living room). That`s about your level.

    More like "I`m sorry I`m being punished."
    Judge should have left with the full 30 days.
    Daddy`s little princess obviously hasn`t ever had
    to live with the consequences of her actions bfoe
    or she never would have flipped a judge off in
    the first place.

    Tbh, I think even less of the judge now than before. He`s a typical coward: backing down once someone that can beat him at his own game (a defence lawyer that knows what they`re doing) gets involved. He`s a douchebag for sure. I doubt thirty days would have made any lasting difference to this girl`s life. (Maybe elsewhere in the world having a prison sentence on your record would make some difference to a person`s employability, but given how common an occurrence it is in the US you guys have pretty much run out of options: you`d never have enough workers if you were to exclude anyone that`d served a jail sentence from being employed). Whether or not she served the time, the judge is still a douchebag that`ll likely end up getting his comeuppance on the street some day. Nothing to see here. Just some irrelevant minor judge trying to wring a little more out of his 15 minutes.

    And next week she is back out on the streets and a week later will be doing drugs she can`t steal from her parents. Leave the bitch in jail while she does rehab, and 1 yr probation. Then it will have some meaning

    I love it when you Yanks respond with sarcasm whenever anyone tells you a truth that makes you feel uncomfortable. It means that there`s just the tiniest little bit of cognitive dissonance taking hold in your brain as you try to reconcile the conflicting ideas that your country somehow represents the ideals of "bravery" and "freedom" whilst simultaneously incarcerating millions of your fellow citizens (usually the weakest ones like teenage girls for instance) for minor `offences` like annoying judges, and only ever picking fights with tiny backwards countries that can`t fight back.

    Dream on. The only thing you Yanks are capable of killing these days are children in Afghanistan. Even the thought of invading Pakistan or Iran, who can actually fight back, makes you think twice.

    @srqlz: Well if you agree with me start doing something about it, for Christ`s sake. Your country`s a mess, dude. Mine is too. But at least we seem to know it, and don`t hold our self-serving politicians and courts up as examples of how to behave as human beings. When future generations look back at this point in history they`re going to be as ashamed of us as this generation is of the Vietnam War or Britain`s brutal suppression of the Mau Mau rebellion in Kenya. Our generation is a disgrace to humanity. The least we can do is look in the mirror and admit it once in a while.

    @L_H: Sorry, I honestly don`t get what you were trying to say there. This is an American website, discussing the actions of an American judge in an American court. That`s why I used the word "Yanks". It`s what we Brits call Americans. It`s not intended to be a derogatory term any more than "Brit" is.

    "...but given how common an occurrence it is in the US you guys have pretty much run out of options: you`d never have enough workers if you were to exclude anyone that`d served a jail sentence from being employed"

    MacGuffin: what industry are you thinking of? An arrest record is an automatic disqualification for the financial sector I work in. If your resume isn`t thrown out, it is at the bottom of the pile. 1/3 of Americans have an arrest record (from a quick Google search). Approx. 10% of American`s have graduate degrees, 30% have Bachelor`s degrees. Most of the people I work with have graduate degrees (or a Bachelor`s at the very least). I would guess that the vast majority of the 1/3 with arrest records are the uneducated. I think we have plenty of law abiding citizens to fill our employment needs. Your perception of America is skewed. I blame the Kardashians and Honey Boo Boo.

    So the judge says "bye bye" like she`s 5 and she answers "adios" with a smile and the judge goes on a powertrip ?

    Don`t get me wrong that girl is stupid for insulting afterwards but that judge is just immature.

    Since when is a 30 day sentence for contempt of court a felony? A felony is a year or more in state prison. His power trip was doubling her bond for saying "adios". Flipping off a judge and verbally insulting him is just begging for contempt of court. Giving her 30 day sentence and then taking it back when she apologises is about what you can expect.

    Gerry:
    We in Canada like to remember that the US invaded our fledgling country (known as Upper and Lower Canada back then) and that a mix of British colonial soldiers, Canadian settlers, and native tribes kicked, as you say, US butt. It was the 100th anniversary last year, and the federal government shamelessly funded TV ads and printed postage stamps to remind people of how >ahem< "we" won the war.

    After seeing the original video

    1) Xanax is not responsible for this.

    2) The judge was the one to kurtly dismiss her - not the other way around. He said "Bye-bye" as if $5,000.00 of her wealth was something to be sneezed at, when if he were acting in the elevated judicial fashion which he assumes in episode two, his dismissal could have been something to the effective of "thank you miss Soto, you`re dismissed."

    Just because she`s the one in an orange jump-suit doesn`t make $5,000.00 worth any less.

    Xanax definitely can do that.. When i was eating those i constantly stole stuff, stupid poo that i didn`t need.. Hell, one of my bros saw a car with keys on the lock (yes, ancient times..), outside video rental as someone was only returning tapes.. He just jumped in and sped away, drove to his apartment, which was about 600m and leave the car. He would never do that kind of thing solber, two xanax later and grand theft auto..

    It`s one of the hardest drugs to come off, the withdrawals are horrendous, it`s highly addictive, it affects your morals and makes you do really really stupid poo. I can think of only one drug that alters your ethics/moral more and that`s heroin.

    MacGuffin , the term Yankee Doodle, Yankee or Yank was an insulting British term for Americans since the mid 1700`s.

    So when you use it in conjunction with arguments that show contempt and disrespect for our country, we take it as the insult it is.

    Perhaps you should learn what a word means before you use it.
