Great judge but animal cruelty... should have starved her for a month. It would be a favour to her in the end..

Judge deserves an award. More practical and helpful sentences than jail would ever be. Plus it keeps people from becoming hardened criminals who repeat offend. This judge is a genius

I wish I had met this judge when I was young, maybe I would have turned out to be a better person.

Its funny but he is letting criminals get away with really easy punishments, I don't like it.

LOL some people didn't get his message...he says his method is better for MINOR OFFENSES, the initial steps of a full-fledged criminal. He says if you put it someone directly in jail for a minor offense, let's say at a young age, you don't teach very much, you actually make the offender "criminally smarter" than before. So it's better to stop any future criminal behaviour at this stage, by teaching a lesson with humiliation, empathy with the victim etc. rather than mere jail time

What an amazing man. We all make mistakes and do stupid shit we’re ashamed of but at least this method of punishment gives one chance to not have your life ruined by it. Well done sir, well done

That's not where their punishment ends, once the cops pin that felony on you, you can't get a place to live or a job. Then you go right back to prison where they really want you to be so they can kill you in there. They just pretend to care. Their job is to get rid of you or use you till you're dead.

Cruel and Unusual Punishment. “Under the Eighth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, individuals convicted of a crime have the right to be free of "cruel and unusual" punishment while in jail or prison.” Put this criminal in judge attire in jail. Italian as usual. Nazis are taking over this country.

So just make up punishments that aren't lawful punishments for the crime. Stupid

What's it called again... unusual punishment.

I'd be pissed by the pepper spray sentencing. My job requires exposure to it, and it's terrible. If someone hit me with spray, I want them to either be in jail or at least be exposed to it as well.
Frances Lambert (1 day ago)
I like this judge!!! He is compassionate and just at the same time. I think the animal abuser should have been given more time at the dump. 8 hours is not long enough for what she did to that poor dog. And the bike thief was having too much fun to have his lesson learned.

no 8 hours in a dump will not make that monster feel what the dog did. 90 days in jail would have been too lenient as well. Who can treat a dog like this, can do it with a human as well, and will not be cured in 8 hours of sitting in stink. Disagree with this sentencing...
TheReet (3 days ago)
I like his sentencing but... i like the way Germany handles this. Here, this would be impossible because the first fcking law says the human dignity shall be inviolable

This is so me. We had a school court thing and they made me the judge. So I sat at the teacher's podium. A kid had been showing embarrassing pictures of another kid around the school. The whole school was there to see what his punishment would be. "You could have a weeks suspension, or," I smirked evilly. "You can have an embarrassing picture of you in the SCHOOL DISTRICTS newspaper." "Photo." "CASE DISMISSED" Well, that was one embarrassing photo. I was the judge of the school. When the principal needed help I was called in.

The Eighth Amendment (Amendment VIII) of the United States Constitution prohibits the federal government from imposing excessive bail, excessive fines, or cruel and unusual punishments. Jk, he's cool.

Wow this is actually a great system. The judge makes them reflect on their issues while saving the state money. Good shit I hope more judges act like this. But i have a feeling someone will do this and take it too far....

It is better than going to jail. You get to be seen as a person who did a wrong doing but made up for it.

An eye for an eye doesn't leave the whole world blind, congrats judge
Sundowner Mc (3 days ago)
Like the description says, the worlds a better place when "the punishment fits the crime". When the main focus is a 30-60-90 day jail for petty crimes it hurts the futures of those who could with a little guidance better themselves. Yes community service is used in some cases, but it's easier to just throw people into jail versus actually addressing the core issues of their character, in the hopes of never seeing them again in court.

i think peper spray is not cruel punishment when she did it to the other person. I think it is fair, not like it poses a health risk . It would giver her insight into why she should do that to others.

When you think about it, all punishments are cruel and unusual. Going to prison isn't nice or normal.

Wtf? Why does a judge have so much leeway? This seems arbitrary.
OldFlightSimmer (5 days ago)
The judge was onto something when he said the root of the problem goes way back, but I would say it goes even further back, tp education, to school. Just think about how much teachers make and how much politicians make. There’s your answer. The countries with the lowest crime rates have the best school system.
