    Luckily "Shibbir Chowdhury said he would pay his father's fine and had received a lot of support from other people online and in their community."

    Can’t even fathom the judges actions here. Also can’t fathom Hamtramck having strict nuisance laws on yard upkeep, it’s a really poor working class enclave within Detroit.

    The video is as bad as the articles describe. The man is heaving like he's on his last breaths and the judge scolds him like he's guilty of the most heinous of crimes.

    All the psych books I've read in my life and I still have no idea how and why people can be so mean.

    I suggest perhaps you re-read the section on sadism. Flawed people feel big and get (often sexually-based) pleasure from mistreating others less powerful. That explains the teachers I had, as a very young kid in the post-war English school system. 40 years later, when I got to College here, I made the connection in psych class almost instantly. I never forgot a moment of it, in all those years! Still haven't.
