There are a whole lot of parents in this country whose kids are on dope that wouldn't get called out like that. Sounds like this judge is trying to draw a little attention to himself.
Depends what kind of presentence report the judge got from the probation offficer(s) - the judge may be ticked off the DA did not try to forfeit (seize) the house as being used as a base of operations for the drug dealing (this was not someone getting busted just for personal use) - if the "boys" were living the life of street dealers while living at home Reid had to have some clue what was going on.
IMO the judge is not a publicity hound here - given the nature of the fan base, there are easier ways to draw attention to yourself than by calling out the Eagles HC in Philly.
