well, I would hate to sit in a room listening to rap ---but that doesn't mean that it would be painful for those kids.....barry manilow isn't awful to me, but probably is to these kids....

it's great a punishment that fits the crime

This is too funny! For me it would be Celine Dion and Michael Bolton for starters...

Or John Tesh.

Whatever.

Raffi anyone?

I second Celine Dion. And to the perps with the most violations, they should be forced to not only listen to Celine Dion, but to WATCH her sing. Cruel and unusual punishment.

Even a half hour of Barney would make anyone crack. Throwing in the other artists is just iceing on the cake. The platters are pretty good though.

I think Sinatra did that song, not Manilow.

I could be wrong.....

I've always wanted to have a set of speakers mounted in my car, the biggest speakers money can buy. I'd tool around town minding my own business, at least until some yay-hoo pulls up next to me with his rip-rop (sic) turned up so loud that it rattles my car and my bones.
That's when I'd slip on my noise cancelling headphones, slip in my copy of "Slim Whitman Sings and Yodels", queue up "Cattle Call" and turn the volume to 11, maybe even 12.
Then I'd stay right next to him as long as I could, playing Cattle Call over and over and over.
Think I'll put that on my 'bucket list'.

Ha! It would work on my teenagers, that's for sure! I don't care where you're from, that's funny--and sweet justice, to boot.

sounds like torture to me. they called this torture when they found out they did this kind of stuff at guantanomo bay. but its ok to do it to some teenagers that had a loud car stereo.

Sacco began the program years ago when he noticed that many of the repeat offenders simply showed up at his courtroom to pay their fine with cash.

Then the fine needs to be severely increased. Say $1,000 1st time.
