    Do you agree with the Judge's punishment? Poll to follow.


    District Juvenile Judge Scott Johansen gave Valerie Bruno the option to either cut off her daughter Kaytlen Lopan's long hair "right now" with courtroom scissors or have the teen spend an extra 150 hours in detention as punishment for hacking off the locks of a 3-year-old girl she befriended in a McDonald's in Price.

    How do you befriend someone by chopping off their hair. It seems fitting enought to me. Where were the parents when all this was going on.

    He didn't 'order' the mom to cut it off, he gave her an option. Seemed fair to me.
