    'Balloon Boy' Parents Get Jail Time, 4 Years Probation

    The thread title should be Media whores get slap on the wrist. A adequate punishment would be to make these scum reimburse the tax payers. I could care less if the media wasted their ****en time,screw the media. It is the tax payers who wasted their money on this wild goose chase who should be reimbursed. Yeah its nice they got jail time,probation, and can't profit from it but it is still a slap on the wrist.

    A Colorado judge sentenced 'Balloon Boy' father Richard Heene to 90 days in jail and four years probation Wednesday.

    Larimer County District Judge Stephen Schapanski prohibited Richard Heene from receiving any form of financial benefit, whether through the media, a book, or articles he might write steming from the balloon hoax. The judge also required him to turn over quarterly bank statements to make sure he's not making money off this incident.

    Richard Heene will serve the first 30 days of his sentence in jail and then the last 60 days he will spend weekends and nights in jail so that he will be able to work during the day. The judge ordered him to begin his 30-day jail term on January 11, delaying the start of the sentence for two weeks so he can spend the holidays with his family.

    The judge sentenced 'Balloon Boy' mother Mayumi Heene to 20 days in jail and four years probation. She must start her jail time no later than May 11, and has to wait until Richard Heened has completed his jail time.

    Her time served is flexible — she can report to jail on 10 weekends, for example — so the children are cared for, the judge said.

    snip...

    Chief Deputy District Attorney Andrew Lewis also asked for full restitution to reimburse authorities for the cost of investigating the hoax — an amount that could exceed $50,000.

    "People around the world were watching this unfold," he said. "Mr. Heene wasted a lot of manpower and a lot of money in wanting to get himself some publicity."
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Throw them in with Madoff.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
