    Probably they got to built a whole new section on the jail to hold this hippo, her chin is the size of my cheeks. The back ones.

      Since Judge Weiland appears to not like women, this woman would probably get a decent sentence imposed upon her. The male criminals get off scott free. Either way, it’s time for this judge to be removed from the bench.
