Broward Judge Tries to Teach Juvenile Delinquents What the Jazz Is All About

Spoiler alert: Miles Davis was not in attendance.
Broward County is apparently running out of things to do with juvenile delinquents.

That could possibly be why more than 30 of the troubled youngsters were bored to death enlightened by the Dillard High School Jazz Ensemble in Judge Merrilee Ehrlich's juvenile delinquency courtroom yesterday.

Now see, some of the kids were in that courtroom with good intentions:

"It's not for me. I'm rap, hip-hop, but they performed really good," a 15-year-old delinquent told the Sun Sentinel. "Without this, I'd be in trouble... because with my charges, they don't take me at the parks."

That's the spirit, kid.

While the young man told the paper he wasn't exactly inspired by the performance, his grandmother had a different story to tell reporters.

"I was watching him when they were playing, like he had tears in his eyes," his grandmother told the Sentinel. "He didn't want to show me, but I said, 'You see, you could become something like that.'"

Our guess is that the tears were those of boredom for the poor kid, but he made it through.

Of course, the kids didn't quite willingly attend the courtroom jazz performance. It gave the delinquents 20 hours of community service toward their probation -- which Ehrlich apparently justified as being more valuable then serving the community.
