A hot-headed teen got a slap on the wrist Friday for slugging a Manhattan principal who told him to turn down his music. Judge Edwina Richardson-Mendelson granted Luis Penzo, 19, youthful offender status and sentenced him to a conditional discharge as long as he stays out of trouble for three years hell dodge prison and a criminal record. You made us very proud, the judge said of the surly teens compliance with a family therapy program. Penzo, who sauntered into Manhattan Supreme Court Friday wearing a white T-shirt and red gym shorts, offered no apology.

and apparently judges are endorsing the decline
A 19-year-old high school student??? Or is he in grade school? We are total suckers.
The judge is an ass.
Sounds like an illegal alien and the judge wanted to make sure he had no criminal record - could be wrong, but that is what this sounds like to me.
Judge Edwina Richardson-Mendelson
“..leaving the educator with two black eyes and a laceration that needed seven stitches...”
My guess is he’ll be dead in three years.
That picture just screams gang killer. He will be back in court soon or dead from a gang shooting. I wonder what the judge’s angle is? The principal could sue given the degree of injuries, but he would likely be dealt with if he tried. Great system we have in the multicultural America.
The principal received two black eyes and a laceration that required seven stitches.
He just oozes arrogance.
I wonder if the judge would have the same opinion, that the kid “made him proud” IF the kid hauled off and punched him in the face; leaving him with two black eyes and stitches?
Judge Edwina Richardson-Mendelson, the other offender.
Just out of curiosity... picture of the principal?
Offered no apology but complied with a family therapy program?
Either he just occupied a seat in the sessions or the “program” is a charade facilitated by a charlatan.
Now what if the judge herself were on the receiving end of that violence instead?
I think the pictures help us understand what is going on here.
Black female judge...double AA hire...figures.
One of Obama’s sons ya think???
