[Edited to get the facts straight] This girl, who appeared in a court to face a misdemeanor criminal mischief charge (she allegedly damaged property), was thrown into a courtroom jail for a brief period of time this week in Tarrant County because she wore this shirt (it has "brat" and "naughty" checked) and popped gum when she stood before the judge. "Everyone has to accept the consequences for their actions. Ms. White just had a poor attitude, " said the judge according to the Star Telegram. Our government can lock someone up for having a "poor attitude"? The State accuses you of a crime and forces you into court, and they want you to bring with you an attitude they feel is appropriate? Has it come to this?
