She's equally fair; a children's champion
25 April 2005 | by sweeneyn14See all my reviews

Judge Judy doesn't hate anyone. What she hates is the inability of some to accept responsibility for their actions. She's a champion of children, animals and the defenseless. Time after time, people come into her court expecting others to suffer for their own stupidity. It's just amazing to see the sense of entitlement so many of us have. Judge Judy wakes them up -- and everyone else too -- with her ability to drive right into the point and skewer the unwitting idiots right where they stand. If she makes just one person take responsibility for their children and their own lives, she's worth it. I love this show. I don't always agree, but I can see that overall she's a good person who is consistent and fair no matter the race or gender of her victims, er, litigants.
