A Cruel, Unusual, and ... Musical Punishment?

A judge has sentenced violators of the noise ordinance of the city of Fort Lupton, Colorado, to a musical punishment:

Violaters of the city of Fort Lupton's noise ordinance were in for a big surprise this past Friday. The city's judge sentenced citizens who have been busted for being too loud to 1 hour of listening to unpopular or unusual music.

In a courtroom with mostly young adult offenders, Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" played loudly on a boombox. During the full hour of punishment, they were not allowed to chew gum, eat, drink, read or even sleep.

Most violators found the first few minutes funny. As time wore on with Karen Carpenter, Barry Manilow and Barney songs, they weren't laughing anymore.

When my lovely neighbors decide to start blasting their music I slip in John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Brian Eno and turn the volume up after placing the speakers close to the fence. If they don't take the hint, I start playing funeral marches. They get it by then.
