Amanda Bynes
is a danger to the public ... and a judge should NOT have let her off the hook in her 2 hit-and-run cases after she paid off the victims ... this according to the L.A. City Attorney.

We broke the story, Bynes was charged with two counts of hit-and-run stemming from two separate incidents over the past year in which she allegedly plowed into cars ... and fled the scene.

But Bynes has since struck a financial settlement with both sets of victims ... and Amanda's attorney went to court this week and convinced the judge to throw out the criminal charges against the actress.

The decision INFURIATED the L.A. City Attorney's Office, which STRONGLY objected based on the fact that there were multiple incidents and that Bynes has a DUI case pending, stemming from an incident in April when Bynes allegedly crashed into a cop car.

As for the DUI case, the District Attorney's Office is still moving forward with that case -- which is scheduled to go in front of the judge next month.

Money trumps the justice system? Since when does paying off the victims dismiss traffic tickets? How much did the judge get?$10,000?

Does LA have the stupidest judges in the country? Inquiring minds want to know.

Oh, if AB has enough money to pay off her victims, maybe she can help LiLo out of her current fix (and into her next one).

Mister tough guy City Attorney, go catch real criminals instead of focussing your attention on celebs with minor traffic accidents.

I guess she has to kill someone for her to actually face any punishment. Even then she might still get a slap on the wrist. It's happened before. Brandy comes to mind. Also that football player from earlier had at least one DUI before the last one killed his friend. Just wait...
