i don't disagree that she's acting like a jackass. she's a freaking child... she obviously doesn't know how to conduct herself or how to deal with the situation she's in... I just don't think sending her to jail is going to help that problem... The judge is an adult... he started out speaking familiarly to her... "bye bye" he says sarcastically and she responds in kind...he knows better and he stooped to her level. That's a much bigger deal in my opinion. I doubt she's ever been in front of a judge before and she didn't know how to act. Again, none of this excuses her actions but the judge met her half-way and if she'd had a lawyer it would've gone totally differently.
I don't really fault the judge much. She acted like it was all a joke till she saw the consequences.
I get the impression she's one of those that probably only learns things the hard way.
