A Judge, when sentencing a man for robbery, asked if he had anything to say. 

The man replied, “Yes,  your honor. Please sentence my parents to jail also. “ 

The judge asked, “Why?” 

The prisoner answered, “When I was a little boy, I a stole a pencil from school. My parents knew about it but never said a word. Then I stole a pen. They knowingly ignored it. I continued to steal many other things from the school and the neighbourhood till it became an obsession. They knew about it, yet they never said a word.  If anyone belongs in jail with me, they do.”
