Re: YOU'VE GOT TO SEE THIS !!!!

Yep - glad that money cannot influence everyone! Hat's off to the judge.
He should be locking up the sheriff too - for contempt. Letting Paris go "home" was a direct violation of the judges express orders.

Broken arm - age 11 scrapping with kid up the street.
Broken leg - age 13 - at Derby Street baths - slipped on the darned metal steps and fell backwards, trapping leg behind the steps.
