    IMO the idiot here was the judge.

    Seriously, what was this supposed to accomplish?
    Ha, I could care less, communities should be able to handle their own business, although I think the sentence is stupid. I don't see it violating the Bill of Rights or Constitution in general.

    I just read a story today about a judge that sentenced an individual to 10-years of church.

    Some judges are really eccentric/crazy...

    I wish more judges would think like this.

So really what the judge is doing (poorly I think) is bringing back that old social dynamic.

    I think "I have to wear this sign because I did xyz" would have been sufficient.
    No it's to humiliate the individual....

    Back in the 17th and 18th century they would put people in stocks in the middle of town. This situation is the same concept. Hell, they used to tar and feather people as well.

    I disagree, the idiot was clearly the woman who drove on a sidewalk just to pass a school bus, instead of waiting like any normal ****ing person would. For that kind of stupid no fine, and no amount of time in jail will untard that dumbass. Shaming the idiot back into reality, where sidewalks are for pedestrians and people stop for school buses, probably has a higher chance of success. Let's face it, driving on a sidewalk so you can pass a school bus is a level of stupid not many are able to achieve. In what ****ing plane of existence does that make any god damned sense?
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I fully support bringing back public stockades.

    For a crime such as this, nine times out of ten, public humiliation in this manner would be the most effective punishment. Anybody can pay a fine or even serve a small amount of time and remain relatively anonymous. Not so with public shaming like this. Most people don't like others to know what they're really like.

    Unfortunately, this woman is the one out of ten. I saw her on the news tonight. She was interviewed while "on post", and she clearly doesn't get it.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
