Brickbat: Keep It Trimmed

Burhan Chowdhury was 72 and trying to tell Burhan that his lymphoma treatment has made it too difficult for him to take on yard work. However, Hamtramck’s Michigan Judge Alexis Krot wasn’t happy with the explanation. Chowdhury came to her court seeking a citation, for failing to keep the walkway and plants in his back yard neat. Krot told Chowdhury, “You should be ashamed about yourself.” Krot said, “Have y’all seen the photo?” This is a shameful act. You should be in jail for this. Chowdhury’s son claimed that he and his father usually trim the plants, however the boy was away from the country for several month and her mother had hurt her back. The problem was fixed by him as soon as his mother found out.
