And you know that because you've seen a lot of "Law and Order SVU" AND "Judge Judy's".

I would give the finger to that judge anytime... The girl wasn't disrepecful at the beginning, and the judge doubled the fine because she said "Adios"... w f f ?... Of course, I'd get pissed of because he did that and I would've actually given him the whole arm.

Have to agree. When you're a Chiuaua in a lion's cage, you don't piss-off the lion. Same when you're a low-life criminal. You're supposed to understand where you are and what your situation is, and you try to behave yourself for an hour so the hammer doesn't come smashing down on you.
So funny how these small-brained individuals have nothing more than animal behavior and animal instinct; no empathy, no morals, no humility, and certainly no honor. They don't even know how to PRETEND to behave well for their-own good. It's no wonder they get themselves in jams and end up caged...where they belong.

What she failed to explain to the judge at the time is that in her religious beliefs (Sikhism from ancient South-Eastern India, which worships the Guru Granth and follows the Five Ks )'saluting' with the middle finger is the highest respect one can pay, and the most respected form of gratitude to a tribal elder or other authority. She should have also reminded that according to our constitution, religious persecution is unlawful, and that a Judge of all people should understand the implications this type of discrimination will bring.

But I guess she didn't think of it at the time. Oh well, Happy Thirty!
