    Pretty sure judges in juvenile courts are allowed to sort of use some discretion when choosing punishment, given the limitations of sentencing juveniles.

    Absolutely. Maybe then should would think twice about doing that to someone else. I think it would be a better option for her to learn her lesson than community service or whatever else her punishment would have been.

    Probably when you're dealing with Lo Pan (kid's name is Lopan).

    Jack Burton: All I know is, this Lo Pan character comes out of thin air in the middle of a goddamn alley while his buddies are flying around on wires cutting everybody to shreds, and he just stands there waiting for me to drive my truck straight through him with *light* coming out of his mouth!

    I wish more judges would go for "cruel and unusual punishment." Heinlein said it best, punishment must be cruel, and it must be unusual, or else it is not punishment at all.

    Oh relax, probably had more of an impact on her than 120 hours of half-hearted community service would have.

    Re: Judge Orders lighter sentence for ponytail to be cut off

    What I don't understand (and that is partly because she is a minor and we can't see the complaint) is how they could even have a case...I mean he gave her and her mother a choice. She could have taken the community service time and kept her hair.

    If I'm the girl, I get the hair cut. It'll grow back, plus you won't spend you're whole summer vacation doing community service.



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    Your presumption was correct.
