HAMTRAMCK, Mich. (WDIV) - A Michigan judge is being criticized after she berated a 72-year-old cancer patient for not cleaning up his lawn.

The exchange between Judge Alexis Krot and 72-year-old defendant Burhan Chowdhury took place during a virtual court hearing related to failure to keep his property maintained in violation of a Hamtramck, Michigan, ordinance.

“The neighbors should not have to look at that,” Krot told the defendant. “You should be ashamed of yourself.”

The man’s son, Shibbir Chowdhury, appeared at the hearing alongside his father, who doesn’t speak much English. He explained that his father is a cancer patient who is undergoing chemotherapy, and that leaves him too weak to go out and clear overgrown plants.

Update: Hamtramck judge apologizes for berating elderly cancer patient over weeds

Hamtramck Judge Alexis Krot has apologized to an elderly cancer patient she berated and threatened with jail time over some unkempt weeds outside his home. And she said she's reporting herself to a state commission that probes judicial misbehavior.

"I made a mistake," Krot said in a statement shared with the Free Press by the court Thursday. "I acted intemperately. I'm very embarrassed that I did so. I apologize to the person who appeared before me and to our entire community for having failed to meet the high standards that we expect of our judicial officers, and that I expect of myself."

    I am going to do one more News Forum like the Weird News but this one is Science News for all the cool science and technology articles in the Archive
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hmm, do I need to start posting some of the Science and Technology news to this new section in the future?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Or do we need to move the news to their respective sections once the threads are old enough, read to be put into the News Archive?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The 2nd thing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have been moving stuff from the current Headline news like a year old and stuff over when I see it in the logs or members online but mostly I have been moving stuff from the Archives
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is possible to automate it so that instead of moving to Archive if it has the Science, technology or sci tech tag that it gets archived there instead. I am considering a new Weird News Tag
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Please do. I'll try to tag the news appropriately when I get the chance.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The new Discourse forum software we are moving to next does alot with the tags and also hashtags
