What do you think of the judge’s action? Personally I think she got on her high horse and was upset that certain members of the courtroom were not showing deference. For whatever reason the lady was laughing but when she realized the judge was upset about this she began to exit the courtroom. She was already walking away and was not causing any additional problems. But again the judge felt disrespected and threw the lady in jail out of spite. We can’t help what we find funny.
