Judge Judy’s Jaded Jurisdiction

judge-judyI hate Judge Judy. And Judge Joe Brown. And Judge Mathis. To be honest, I have never really been a fan of reality shows. But there are some shows that I can put up with. The Bachelor gives great insight into the true feelings of someone falling in love while America’s Next Top Model sets a good example for young girls everywhere – but court reality shows are the worst. At least these other shows separate themselves from anything having to do with the law. Shows like Judge Judy and Judge Joe Brown make a mockery of the entire judicial system, and as an average citizen (really good looking, but nevertheless average), I cannot stand for this. Thus, I would like to indict Judge Judy (on behalf of all judicial reality shows) with first degree mockery, reckless endangerment, and being mean. That’s right, being mean.

After taking Political Science 230: Law in the Political Arena, I know that America’s judicial system is one of the most complicated in the world. Basically, we don’t like criminals (sorry Hamburglar!). We have established an incredibly complicated procedure that makes evasion of the law virtually impossible (see: OJ Simpson). And it is the courts that serve as the base of this system. Courts like the Supreme Court and the Courts of Appeals, not the court at Sunset Bronson Studios (where both Judge Joe Brown and Judge Judy are filmed). It is at the Sunset Bronson Studios where Judge Joe Brown and Judge Judy serve up their imitation integrity. Surprisingly, while they may look like they are filming at real studios, Judge Joe Brown and Judge Judy are actually filming on sets. These judges have absolutely no authority, and I don’t understand why they need to film in a mock court room. Personally, I think everyone would enjoy it more if they filmed in a forest or on the beach.

These shows might be interesting if they actually meant something, but they are absolutely futile. In addition, they are becoming dangerous to society. Yes, it doesn’t take a college level course in law to understand that these shows are frauds. But there are some people who watch these shows on a regular basis (people who may or may not have a college education). And unfortunately, after watching these shows for so long, many people may not know better.

My third and final charge has to do with the serious ‘tude on display in these shows. If you are going to set up a fake courtroom and make fake accusations about people who might as well be fake, you should be nice about it. The things Judge Judy says and does in her courtroom would make Simon Cowell blush.

Unfortunately, after making these claims, I realized that I have no authority or method of enforcement. But neither does Judge Judy.

So Judge Judy, once and for all, you have the right to remain silent.

    Judge Judy was a nationally recognized Judge in the criminal court judge in the New York judicial system before she retired and was approached about having her own show, in which she presides over real cases with real authority.

    Judge Judy’s tagline says it all: R”eal Cases! Real People! Judge Judy!”

    Where is all the hate from?

    Judge Judy turns on the people that pay her courtroom for justice. She curses and makes nasty remarks and jestures to them also. This bitch really needs to change her damn attitude, or go back into her retirement and take whatever her problem is out on her own family, that is if they even bother with her. If I ever get a chance to go on her show I’m going to tell her about herself before she even gets a chance to go bipolar on me.

      judge judy is tired of the morons in this country anad all the drug users and bums she has to deal with.Just watch who come in especially the defendents.80% are losers on drugs.She’s frustrated with the stupidity of these people.Most of them say,”he borrowed me” $1,000. He loaned me is the correct way to say this.This is sheer stupidity and she’s tired of this idiotic countries blue collar people who don’t have a frickin education and are all on drugs.

    “America’s Next Top Model sets a good example for young girls everywhere”

    America’s Next Top Model advocates the use of cosmetics, a mediocre countenance, an emaciated figure, and a teleprompter to propel young womens’ careers. It has little redeeming value for women, inspiring them to focus on what is external, rather than internal, and nauseates all demographics but the visually impared.

    Well written Robbie. 🙂

    Maybe if people weren’t such dumbasses, she wouldn’t make them see straight.

    Judge Judy puts the spice in “duh”. The rest of the Judge shows suck.
