  1. This is an amazing story, anyone can make a mistake so you can usually justify the first arrest with little to small punishment as long as no one was hurt, however one would think that at least some judge at around arrest 10, 20, 30, 40, or 50 would have put this man in prison for a while. I hope this story is followed closely and his record examined to see if it was always the same judge that must have not taken their oath seriously.
