An old woman was held guilty of shoplifting at a grocery store. The case was presented in front of the judge. In her defense, the lady confessed her crime and said she had stolen grocery items like rice and some pulses as she was very poor and her only son had died in an accident leaving behind his wife and three children who were dying of hunger.

The owner of the grocery store insisted that she be punished so that others learn a lesson not to shoplift.

The judge was a very kind and honest person. After going through the documents he looked up and told the poor old lady, “I am sorry you have committed a crime no matter what the situation a crime is a crime so you are liable to criminal charges.”

The poor lady had to pay a fine of $100 and if she could not pay she would be sent to jail for 1 year according to the law.

The judge then took his hat off and put $10 in it, turned towards the audience in the court and said, “Each one of you present in the court is fined $5 for letting a whole family starve until this poor old lady is forced to steal to feed her daughter-in-law and her grandchildren. The clerk will now collect the fines from all of you present.”

The clerk brought the collection which was about $300 to the judge including the fine from the owner of the store. The fine of $100 was paid off and the judge gave the old lady remaining money so she could take care of her family until she got a job somewhere.

Moral of the Story: Justice is a human right and kindness is humanity. So always be kind and compassionate along with being just.

Two roofers, (Idiots) Larry and Joe were on the roof laying tiles, when a sudden wind gust came and knocked down their ladder. "I have an idea:" said Larry. "We'll throw you down, and then you can pick up the ladder." What, do you think, I'm stupid?" "I have and idea" said Joe." I'll shine my flashlight, and you can climb down on the beam of light." "What, do you think I'm stupid?" "You'll just turn off the flashlight when I'm halfway there."
