"Did you go to Nautilus for middle school?" Judge recognizes burglary suspect as childhood friend.

What are the odds? Ok, I believe you folks have seen this video already!

It is a video about an unexpected class reunion – a sad one, I would add.

Let’s give our characters names, shall we?

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Mindy Glazer, a Florida judge who was presiding over the case of a man arrested for burglary and theft on Thursday.


Arthur Booth, a 49-year-old man from Miami who was in court for a hearing on a burglary charge.

Now that we are not strangers to each other, let’s understand what really happened.

(Warning) Be ready for this. It will break your heart!

Well, sadly, burglary suspect Arthur Booth meets his childhood friend and breaks down in shock when he realizes that her life has taken, say, another direction.

It needs only one question to break the ice and take the man down:

"Did you go to Nautilus for middle school?" Glazer asked the suspect standing before her. 

Booth starts crying “Oh my goodness, oh my goodness”

“I’m sorry to see you there, I always wondered what happened to you, sir,” said Judge Glazer. “This was the nicest kid in middle school. He was the best kid in middle school, I used to play football with him ... and look what has happened, I’m so sorry.”

“Mr. Booth, I hope you are able to change your ways, good luck to you,” added the judge.

According to NBC Miami, Booth, 49, was arrested on Monday by police in Hialeah. Citing an arrest report, the station reports he was spotted driving a gold Honda Accord suspected to be tied to a home burglary.

How sad, right?

“What’s sad is how old we’ve become,” joked the judge. 
“I hope you’re able to come out of this OK and lead a lawful life” She said while wishing her childhood friend luck and that he would turn things around.  

Have you ever thought about that? I mean, about how far our decisions, opportunities and the hand of fortune can take us?

It’s not over; there is another video. See Arthur Booth’s cousin talking about his cousin:  

Sad, but what can we do? C'est la vie. It is a French expression that is rather famous in English and other languages; it means "it is the life!" 

Move on Mr. Booth. I do hope you find your way! 

All right, Booth is a 49-year-old person, but as we are all talking about another issue related to justice, crime and the like in Brazil, I would like to ask you these questions:

What should the age of criminal responsibility be? Why?
