richard sent along a article to post

After four years, young man gets a shot at justice

“Circuit Judge Ric Howard, known for his tough punishments, instead slapped Thornton with the maximum sentence of 30 years in prison. The judge at one point mentioned Thornton’s father, whom he had sentenced to 30 years in a theft case.”

I found updated articles on this case

I think it is a sad story that this kids was punished for his fathers previous cases with the judge

witch reminded me of a story on This american life this week about jewish belief that a father is punished for a boys sins “Oedipus Hex.”
