This sounds like something out of a bad 70’s sitcom.

Except the great Fields was as light and fleet as a dancer. But he sure did hate kids!

Unfortunately in USA culture judges are forced to be parents and discipline troubled “kids” whose parents didn’t a good job in raising their children.

“Prugh has two adult adopted children with developmental disabilities, cerebral palsy and epilepsy; a husband with dementia; and a paralyzed son, the Plain Dealer of Cleveland reported.”

I LOVE it!
