A US judge is forcing noisy people to listen to Barry Manilow songs, the judge’s favourite singer.
I am torn between protecting Barry Manilow, who I love, and the sheer brilliance of this form of punishment.
The Colorado judge, Paul Sacco, was fed up with repeat offenders who played loud rap and gangster style music, disturbing their neighbourhoods.
He makes them listen to "his choice of music" very loudly for an hour. This guy is my hero. The judge’s top list includes theme tunes from children’s television shows such as Barney And Friends and other apparently ‘uncool’ music.
It gets so much better: after the punishment, a survey is taken to check whether the offenders enjoyed the music or not.
