This story made me exceptionally angry -at the judge, and the system. There are so many aspects wrong with this punitive approach.

Were I in this situation, I would feel totally justified retaliating in the extreme.

That judge is a COCKMUNCH.

What's his farking email address?
 
2012-05-26 06:48:15 AM  
On the one hand: "A little stay in the jail for one night is not a death sentence."

On the other hand: The judge admitted that he wanted to make an example of the teen. Tran had to spend 24 hours in jail and pay a $100 fine.

So the judge only sentenced her in order to send a stern warning to others even though he himself says the punishment is no big deal. What a bag of douches.

I agree 100% about the judge, but if you do find any contact information, please don't post it in the thread. That's heavily frowned upon at fark.

For the life of me, I can't understand why the court system isn't being more agressive in hunting down this girl's parents. They're the ones that thrust her into this situation in the first place by literally abandoning her and her siblings.

This article only mentions a little sister, but from another article:

Diane Tran is often exhausted because she works a full time job, a part time job, and takes honors classes at Willis High. She is trying to support a brother in college and a little sister who lives with relatives. Her parents divorced and moved away.

Da fuq?

And the judge manages to come off as an even bigger asshole: "I hadn't thought on that issue because it turns me, 'Well, he's soft. He's not gonna do nothing.' I'm taking off at 11:30 today," said the judge.
 
2012-05-26 06:55:49 AM  
If anyone knows of a fund being collected to help this person I would appreciate them posting it. I would gladly help pay off the fine and perhaps build up a little extra to help her and her siblings.

That judge should be ashamed.

That's another thing that angers me about this f*cking judge. She's not your typical teenager skipping school. She's working two jobs to support her siblings, taking advanced courses at school, is an honors student and the judge wants to make an example of her? F*cking sadist!

Does he get his jollies by giving her a criminal record, even a minor one? One that may affect her ability to further her education and achieve her career goal of becoming a doctor.

I don't have any money to give, hell my Tf runs out in 2 days, but i will PIMP THE HELL out of a fund to help her out.
/had a rough way growing up as well, but not that rough.
// I have a white hot rage for whoever narced her out and that judge is a piece of shaite. I'm sure if she was a white male highschool quarter back, he would have gotten an "atta boy" and a hooker.
 
2012-05-26 07:10:44 AM  
ZERO TOLERANCE!!!

She'll never get into a good college now.

More an enforcer than a judge. One article says a fund will be established but no details.

This case has gone viral so if they get the details for the fund out there soon she's gonna end up with a nice chunk of cash and most likely an expunged record.

I hope so. This judge who's so worried about projecting a tough image when he's the king of the castle should scurry like a cockroach once this stupidity is exposed to a wider audience.

No judge or prosecutor should be elected at any level of government.

Now, appointing judges and prosecutors does present another set of problems (look at the federal courts system), but I think that asshat judges like that having to play "tough guy" to win in redneck towns is a worse problem.

i've already put it out there to my med school and hopkins buddies that if they see her name, she should get special status.
That's what i can do.
/ i have no real super powers, but i'll be damned if i let this little one do the right thing and be punished for it.

Thank you.

It sure as f*ck looks like she is already setting a damn fine example already. We don't need your dumbass ideas of right and wrong to screw her over any more.

Unrewarded is one thing.
Punished with jail time because the judge, in the era of internet, thinks you send messages by ruining people's lives?

Someone should use him to "send a message".

img1.fark.net tag for the girl. Fine. Now, what tag could we use for the judge? Not sure Fark has one that does the job.

2012-05-26 08:44:10 AM

I wonder if the judge got a kickback.
