Pressestimmen

"Stuffed with terrifying tales of juvenile crime. Frightening but fascinating."-- "USA Today""Should be required reading for anyone who cares about law and order: how it has been undermined and what can be done to fix it."-- "New York Daily News""She makes advocates of Tough Love look like marshmallow liberals...Pithy and opinionated, with many real-life case histories, this book is an eye-opener for the politically left and an 'All Right!' cheer for the right."-- "Publishers Weekly"

Synopsis

Judy Sheindlin, former supervising judge for Manhattan Family Court has, for 24 years, laid down the law as she understands it: if you want to eat, you have to work; if you have children, you'd better support them; if you break the law, you have to pay; if you tap the public purse, you'd better be accountable. She abandons all judicial restraint in a scathing critique of the system, filled with hard-nosed alternatives to what she perceives as the US' bloated welfare bureaucracy and soft-on-crime laws.

Although I found some of the anecdotal information in the book interesting and informative, overall I found "Judge Judy" to be condescending, inappropriate, and generally infuriating.
I have two major problems with the content of this book, which is obviously written for laypersons with no knowledge of the legal system.
First, all her observations are based on anecdotal encounters with people IN COURT. Has it occured to anyone else that, while there are always people who scam the system or are dishonest, that MOST PEOPLE DON'T END UP IN COURT?!? Therefore, all her observations are biased because she never sees the people who don't have some problem that lands them in front of a judge.
And secondly, I am ashamed of the type of vigilant law she brags about. Denying people their constitutional rights and supplementing the information in a case with rumors from the legal community are only two examples of ways in which she ultimately undermines the basic ! principles of our judicial system. She seems to have the idea that anyone who doesn't model their lives after what white, educated, upper-middle class professionals believe is appropriate, must be some kind of animal who needs to be "whipped into shape." I find this ethnocentricism sickening. While I'm grateful that she is no longer ruining people's lives in Family Court, I am not happy that a whole generation of vigilanty right-wing legal buffs is being bred in living rooms across the country.

This humorous but pithy little volume addresses many of the problems faced by American families and taxpayers. Yes, the two are intertwined. From her unique perspective as a family court judge, Judge Judy presents the sometimes humorous, sometimes sad, sometimes poignant plight of the American family as it has evolved over the past decades. By bringing her no nonsense approach to both the bench and book, she spotlights that we, the American public, need to re-examine our good intentions and add a healthy dose of reality to our attempts to help those less fortunate than ourselves. She offers realistic, sensible approaches which, if applied, would help people to become more self-sufficient rather than more dependent on government for prolonged assistance which has come to be treated as an entitlement rather than temporary help.

Whether one agrees with all her premises or not, she offers a breath of fresh air to a stale situation which has only grown worse over the last several decades.

This volume should be required reading for all those who believe that throwing money at the problems bedeviling families in this country can be cured by more programs or more monetary entitlements.

One might add that if a few politicians and judges as well as social workers spent an hour or two with this book, it might offer fresh insights into less costly and more productive solutions to the problems that plague our society.

I read the book Don't Pee on My Leg and Tell Me It's Raining. It was very enlightening. If I were a welfare recipient, I would have found more ways to bilk the system I was unaware of. The Kinship programs were something I have never heard of, because in my family, if you have a child, you raise that child. You work for a living, and you pay for your mistakes. I get so tired of people getting a free ride at my expense. I see it everyday, and just like Judge Judy, I'm tired of seeing... I'm tired of coming home from work to find all the neighborhood kids running over, after all, mommy has been having to put up with them all day, so why not sent them here, to bother me who was working all day. I'm tired of seeing welfare recipients in grocery lines, that have two carts full of brand names I can't afford, and things like steak, and all the snacks they can get. I would hope everyone would read this book, and feel the same way I do, but chances are, some of the readers will be bilkers of the system. They will be outraged that someone has questioned them. I wish there could be some swift reforms to make people stop playing victims, and start taking responsibility for their lives.

I have to admit that I am in complete agreement with Judge Judy. She is a tough talking, no nonsense, commom sense oriented individual, who believes in personal responsibility and acountability. What you see on the television screen, if you watch her show "Judge Judy", is what you find between the cover of this book.
The book covers a variety of social issues in the context of her legal and judicial experience, and she does a full court press in giving her opinions. Not given to judicial restraint, she speaks out on those issues to which her nearly quarter of a century experience as a judge has entitled her. I only wish that she were running for public office. She would certainly have my vote.
The only issue that I take with the book is that it is really not a cohesive entity. It is a somewhat disjointed collection of essays or opinions on various social issues that repeatedly came up during her years on the bench. There is no attempt to put them together into a broader context, so that one segues into the next. This is the one shortcoming of the book. Nonetheless, it is still an interesting read.
