Lihue, Hawaii - A judge sentenced a Hawaii man to one year of probation and a $200 fine for making his son walk a mile home from school as a form of discipline. Judge Kathleen Watanabe called the punishment "old-school" and no longer appropriate, the Garden Island newspaper reported Thursday. Robert Demond of Kilauea said he picked up his son from school and asked about a matter that had been brought to his attention. When the son didn´t respond, Demond made him walk home to think about his actions. The age of the boy is unclear. Demond's attorney and a prosecutor didn't immediately respond to a request seeking

Comments:
This is why today´s kids are such wimps! We used to walk "miles through blowing snow, uphill both ways!" Seriously, unless the kid was very young, I think the father was totally within bounds with this.

#1, my father, who grew up in southern GA, told me uphill both ways, blizzards, and barefoot. But, in northern IL, we walked a mile to school, every day the neighbor lady didn´t take pity on us and drive. It was normal, because we lived on the district border, we picked up other kids along the way.

People need to start fighting back against this type of stupidity. Refuse the probation, refuse to pay the fine, go public, hire a lawyer and fight, but do not give in to this idiocy. We are losing our freedoms and the tyrants will never stop taking until we make them stop.

#1, I walked to and from school as well. And where I was from it was hilly. So, I walked uphill (and downhill) on the way to school, and uphill (and downhill) on the way home.

I know it is an old joke, but it is true!

And we wonder why kids are fat????

As a HS student in the early 1950´s, I played in the band. The school buses did not have an activities schedule that covered the late band practices. So - one day a week I had to walk 3 miles home. And - it was, btw, mostly up steep hills. At the end of each summer - we had 3 weeks of daily marching band practice - with no school bus either direction. But - it was mostly downhill from home to school. It got to be pretty tired though, walking home after practice. Nobody thought there was anything wrong with this. It was rare that they cancelled the weekly practice in winter, which made for tough walking on some days here in PA.

As OP implies we don´t know the age of the kid or the kind of neighborhood/area he would have had to walk through. I´d say if he was 12 or older and didn´t have to cross a busy highway the father was right. Much younger than that or through city streets rather than neighborhood streets and there could be some danger.

We used to walk 1 mile to school every day. No big deal. No hills but had to cross Railroad tracks. We were always thrilled if the train happen to come along while we were there and the engineer blew the whistle for us.

I thought I had it rough riding my bike 1 1/2 miles to school every day, until I was talking to my niece who had to walk 3 miles to the school bus stop. Her home was in Montana 40 miles from the Canadian border. One day as she rounded a curve she met up with a grizzly bear. The bear didn´t see her and continued on his way.

I lived in a city, and had to walk a mile back and forth to school every day. When I got older, sometimes I went home for lunch, so add another two miles for that.

I survived, and I never had a weight problem. My mother used to complain about all the shoes we kids wore out, though.

U.S. Rep. John Conyers vowed Monday to fight for Detroiters whose water is being cut off and said he would seek federal aid. Conyers, speaking Monday in the city for a newly formed coalition called the Detroit Water Brigade, said the water issue is “the most important item on my agenda. This is a national issue,” the Detroit congressman said.“Water is a human right. It’s necessary for life.”

Detroit - Longtime Detroit congressman John Conyers sent letters Friday to President Barack Obama and other officials requesting immediate action and relief regarding water shutoffs in the bankrupt city. The Democrat seeks to stop the shutoffs affecting 4,500 customers for nonpayment. Conyers said in a statement that actions represent “an overzealous and misguided approach to cost-cutting.” “Regardless of the rationale for these cutoffs, the human consequences are unacceptable and unsustainable,” he said. “The failure to reinstate water service means unsanitary conditions, malnutrition and disease for babies,

U.S. Rep. John Conyers does not have enough signatures to remain on the Aug. 5 ballot, Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett said Tuesday — a decision that puts his half-century career in Congress at risk. Garrett called the decision about the fellow Detroit Democrat unfortunate, but said she’s “bound by the current laws and statutes of the State of Michigan that set forth very specific and narrow instructions regarding candidate petitions and the authority of the County Clerk.” “It is a very unfortunate circumstance that an issue with a circulator of a petition would disqualify the signature of valid registered voter,” Garrett said

One local resident even says, “Barack Obama will go down as the worst president ever elected.” The Chicago resident below says: “With the president setting aside all these funds for immigrants and forsaken African-American community and African-American families, I think that’s a disgrace.

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend.

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists.

Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

The “ugly American” has gotten a lot uglier over the past few weeks, from the streets of California to the halls of Congress and state houses around the country. A growing number of our fellow Americans have taken on grotesque features, in looks and sounds, in reaction to the thousands of children from Central America who have crossed our borders as they flee poverty and violence in hope for something better. Sadly, the arrival of these youngsters has been greeted by flag-waving, sign-carrying, Bible-thumping and Constitution-quoting citizens demanding that they not be received here and that they be returned immediately to their

Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the "targeting" of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama. "Five years ago, I stated that Obama would take the country apart piece-by-piece, that he would cause a civil war in this country," Voight read on Saturday in a statement on
