Preferential Treatment

A story that was in the news recently. Two youths convicted of causing a personal injury accident by placing a decoy deer in the road given 60 days in juvenile detention, but then allowed to remain out to play football. The judge, as quoted in this article, based the decision to delay the beginning of the sentence on the positive effects of football. Sounds to me like one positive effect is escaping responsibility.

I heard about this story too and again went away shaking my head...if football meant so much to them then taking it away would have been a good lesson to them to think before they act next time.
