Did You Know?

Judge Greg Mathis:[narration for second-season opening-montage] Troubled kids? I was one. Gangs? Jail? I was there. Second chances? I got one. I went to law school, became a lawyer, and then a judge. Now I get to *give* second chances. It's time for hard decisions and tough love. Justice that makes a difference; *that's* what I'm about!See more »

Judge Mathis makes me so mad!!!, 19 May 2008
Author: luva79 from United States

I just witnessed JM believe a known drunk abuser (witness statements) over a composed young lady who said the obviously drunk-looking man sold her car and kept the money instead of giving her the cash. He said someone stole the car over Christmas - but the question still hung in the air - why didn't he call her and tell her of the crime OR call the police??? Judge Mathis completely ignored those 2 critical questions and this freaking loser got away with the crime. He was clapping at the verdict - No one else was because it was unbelievable... he does not deserve that job - he is not a wise man nor a just man. He makes hurtful jokes and makes his living making other people look bad. I will say that he is better than Maria Lopez though - but the best judge in my opinion is Marilyn Millian - She is SO AMAZING!!! always sticks to the law and doesn't let people get away with the crap the other 2 judges do. Get rid of those idiots please!
