In Miami, a judge specializing in juvenile cases had to apologize to a runaway girl who didn't want to be returned to her home. What precisely had the judge said to her? Here we go:
''You're throwing your life away,'' Eig told the girl. "You could end up on the street toothless. You've seen these toothless hags on the street? You know how they get there? They blow their opportunities in life when they're 15. They run away, they end up -- people turn them into whores.''
"Toothless, dead crack whore -- dead at age 19? Is that the destiny you're looking for?'' he added.
