You know what, you're right. This girl should be sent to a resort to carry out her sentence....that'll learn her!!! Prison is supposed to be awful, and if it's as bad as you say, I'm thinking she will have learned her lesson by the end of the 30 days. If Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan can make it, I'm sure she will too.
Yes, letting her walk away with her $5,000 bail is sending her to a resort.. hyperbole r us.
It's pretty humorous that her punishment is justified, really? Why isn't the judge contempt of court since he wanted to be part of the problem?
If he doesn't dismiss her like a douche, she likely doesn't respond with a harmless "adios". If he lets it go as any mature person would do, she walks away with a $5,000 bail to pay, because that was indeed nothing remotely close to contempt of court. Judge can't forego his ego, brings her back, doubles her bail to be an even bigger douche, because of his issue with her completely unrelated to what she was charged for, followed by mocking her, and escalating a conflict he winds up sending her to jail over.
Judge had no reason to do what he did, and by the time she flipped him the bird he already played his part in baiting and antagonising her into doing it.
Send him back to law school since he evidently missed the part about decorum in a court room, though he conveniently remembered what contempt of court is when it suited his agenda.
