A Judge told a 72-year-old man who has cancer that he 'should be ashamed' of himself after he said he was too weak to keep up with his lawn

https://news.yahoo.com/judge-told-72-old-man-014113290.html

A Michigan judge berated a 72-year-old man on Monday after he told her he had failed to keep up with the maintenance of his yard because his cancer treatments made him very weak.

In a video of the exchange, Burhan Chowdhury, of Hamtramck, Michigan, can be heard struggling to breathe as he explained his situation to 31st District Judge Alexis G. Krot.

"You should be ashamed of yourself," Krot could be heard saying in the video. "If I could give you jail time on this, I would."

She then issued him a $100 fine, adding: "You've got to get that cleaned up. That is totally inappropriate."

The man's son, Shibbir Chowdhury, 33, who appeared with his father for the Zoom hearing, spoke up to clarify that his father was sick and that the property had already been cleaned up.

"Do you see that photo?" Krot asked. "That is shameful. Shameful. The neighbors should not have to look at that."

That's the way they live there, but it is inappropriate to live that way here. Anyone can spend a little money and clean up, I agree with the Judge

Yes, other then that.

If he could not be around to help with the work that he had done when in this country by his own admission, he should have been in a position to to at least, once a month, hire someone to come and do basic work.

Yes, the judge was out of line, and this is an extreme case of illness on the man's
part.

But he also is 72 years old and possibly getting to the point that he could not take care of things even if healthy.

The son should be aware that he will need to do something to offset things when he cannot be around due to work or whatever.
