This is just crazy. According to NY Daily News, a Hawaiian man has been sentenced to one year of probation for making his misbehaving son walk a mile home from school. The man’s name is Robert Demond and although the judge, Kathleen Watanabe, deemed the punishment “understandable” she also called it “old school” and “no longer appropriate.” Hit the jump for more details.
In addition to his year of probation, Demond was also ordered to pay a $200 fine. Judge Watanabe went on to add, “These are different times. It’s understandable you became upset with your son, but it’s dangerous for children to walk along the highway, and there are predators out there.”
