Judge sentences woman’s attacker to lie 5,000 times — or am I reading this story wrong?
Fox News ↑

Mike Caro says:

Nothing special about this sad story, except it caught my attention. The criminal attacker has to write, “Boys do not hit girls” 5,000 times. But that will be 5,000 lies.

Clearly, boys DO hit girls, or there wouldn’t be a reason for this sentence. If you’re bound and determined to impose creative justice in this way, at least get your wording right. Besides, it’s a man and a woman, in this instance, not a boy and a girl.

This same judge made national news a few months ago for sentencing a child rapist to probation, largely because the 14-year-old girl seemed mature. Interesting dude, this judge. Carry on. — MC
