    You are right, she does deserve more time than what she got. With the higher bail she just might be in that long waiting on pre-trial. She did not show any respect for the judge or the court.

    Gotta love the spoiled, irreverent, entitlement generation. With her attitude she will qualify for welfare for life, or a low class hooker. And, there's a million more just like her!

    Where does it say she receives welfare , foodstamps, or any other govt support?

    What about all the displays of civil disobedience that occurred in the 60s and early 70s?

    @mtkopf Isnt it astounding what people can read into things by merely applying their own prejudices to any given situation?

    @mtkopf really? I agree and it has nothing to do with color. Considering her crime and attitude, she will absolutely be good for nothing. This prescription pill problem has personally affected my family and let me tell you, it doesn't get better.

    Goths and bikinis don't mix. Careful your statement doesn't get deleted, we aren't suppose to talk about that stuff you know.

    This kid was an out of control kid showing the world just why she's in trouble, rules don't apply to her, well, now they do, maybe, just maybe, she will learn a very hard lesson, respect for the law and that she's not quite a tough and cute as she thinks she is. Parents dropped the ball with this kid.

    "Americans can land in jail for some pretty trivial things ... " Flipping off the judge and shouting "fuck you" is not trivial. I don't think I've ever heard a more blatant definition of contempt of court. What a stupid young woman.

    Hear, hear!

    Besides, the amount of ruckus that a judge has to put up with on a daily basis is ridiculous already. They're like traffic wardens and meter maids.

    Judges abuse their power everyday. In this case I don't really care. The spoiled little brat can learn a bit about politeness over the next 30 days. She should have taken a xanax to calm down before her hearing.

    Good for the judge. Sometimes it's necessary to teach people about respect. Since it's pretty obvious this girl (I refuse to use the term adult) had none for the judge, the law, or the crime she committed, she needed to be taught a lesson. Maybe next time she'll think twice about a punk and acting like a b*tch when dealing with an authority figure.

    I'd rather her rot under a bridge popping Xanax then have tax dollars pay for her roof over her head and three meals a day.

    It’s well-settled that judges have the power to summarily convict and punish anyone who displays contempt of court in the judge’s presence. Some have argued that the law governing contempt is so vague that it can be used to punish virtually anything which isn’t explicitly against the law, but happens to anger the judge. However, that’s not entirely the case. While contempt of court is different from other criminal convictions in that it rarely requires a trial (the judge personally witnessed the entire act of contempt, allowing him to make the necessary determinations of fact), like any other conviction, it can be appealed.

    @LGRepublican A finger sticking up in the air is pretty harmless. If we fail to react or react in a good way, like smile and wave, it will soon lose its effect.

    @LGRepublican but on the other hand, if she has learned anything at all she will think twice before she uses it again.

    I think he did the right thing,,she wasnt taking him seriously enough, hopefully 30 days in jail will scare her straight

    I don't see why he raised it in the first place... but I do understand the jail time after the bird flip.

    @dances-weebles Maybe I missed something, but looked to me that it wasn't until the proceeding was over, he said "bye bye", she said adios, that he then raised it. I didn't see anything that would have warranted her to come back. Plus, by the look of her and her surname it seems that she's latina. I just didn't see anything there...

    @AceLuby well, from watching the video it seems to me that she was acting as though she was amused by the entire proceeding and wasn't taking the judge seriously. one would think that if one is in court on criminal charges that they might want to take things somewhat seriously. a simple 'yes, sir' may have been in order.

    i asked my 11 year old daughter to watch it with no comment from me and she said,'god, she's stupid'

    @AceLuby ...the judge is also Latino....Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat...why do you guys always want to make everything a racial issue? She was being a smart aleck the whole way through and showed absolutely no respect to the court. I'm not sure why "adios" was a reason to up her fine, but she needs a good take down from somebody.

    Disrespectful? Sure. Out of line? Sure. But it's called freedom of speech. She didn't assault the man, she insulted him. This is typical abuse of power, he probably wears women's underwear and was picked on in school as a young boy!

    You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in the court of law.

    Not necessarily a traditional interpretation, but she probably should have watched a couple more episodes of Law and Order. She deserved what she got, being disrespectful is not necessary.

    Good, the judge should have given her 30 more days, and trash bags to pick up litter. Maybe if she grows up, she'll learn you have to respect the law and the court
    system, and if you don't , they have a cell waiting for you.
