The Defiant Ones

The Tennessee Court of the Judiciary has ordered the public reprimand of a general sessions court judge for imposing a sentence that violated judicial canons of ethics.

The judge had ordered that a father and his son be handcuffed to each other.

The title to this post refers to the classic movie starring Sidney Poitier and Tony Curtis. (Mike Frisch)
