Justice Rocks?




Army Times
is reporting that a Georgia Judge ordered Kid Rock to complete 80 hours of community service for his role in an October brawl at a Waffle House in Atlanta.

Well, Kid, a.k.a. Robert James Richie, told Judge Alvin Wong he'd perform for U.S. troops overseas.

Nope.

According to Wong: "Giving him credit for something he would otherwise love to do...completely defeats the punitive purpose of performing community service."

Kid responded with this statement on his Web-site.

He also wrote: "I really take it as a slap in the face, and really have trouble thinking of a better way to “serve the community,” especially at Christmas time when it’s obviously the hardest time for soldiers to be away from their families and home (and I try not to think about it when I’m there, but it’s a little freaky being in the middle of a war zone!)."

Who do you think is right, here? I'm siding with Kid.

Super Dave is I think a bit confused, but he seems glad for the added attention. So yes. He's a happy baby.
