How's this for idiocy:
Last November, teens stole the decoy from a man's home, created a base to help it stand upright because it had only two legs, and then drove up and down the road, watching as drivers swerved to avoid it, prosecutor Brad Bailey said. He said Howard did not stop the prank.
Robert Roby Jr. crashed his car into a pole and broke his neck, collarbone, arm and leg. His passenger, Dustin Zachariah, suffered brain damage, Bailey said.
As a result, the idiots in question pleaded guilty to some misdemeanors and were sentenced to serve 60 days in jail. But they can wait a while, 'cause the judge delayed their sentence until after football season:
'I shouldn't be doing this, but I'm going to. I see positive things about participating in football,' Judge Gary McKinley said Tuesday.You're right, judge - you shouldn't be doing this. I see people sent away to prison every day with no consideration to the disruption of their family lives - mothers separated from children, husbands from wives, sons from parents. For petty shit that doesn't hurt anybody who isn't a consenting adults. Football shouldn't win out over the criminal justice system.
