In an apparent case of rudeness being elevated to criminality, a 43-year-old Ohio man has been sentenced to 29 days in jail for mocking a ten-year-old girl with cerebral palsy. Canton (Ohio) Municipal Judge John A. Poulos ordered the maximum sentence for William Bailey, who pleaded no contest Tuesday to reduced misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and aggravated menacing, the Associated Press reported. According to the The (Canton) Repository, Bailey was captured on a cellphone video imitating the way the girl, who uses crutches and has trouble walking.

Comments:
Is this the way we stop gross behavior like this? Every jail in this country would be full if leftists were charged with their reprehensible behavior. Good parenting appears to be gone in this country.

The reason good parenting is gone in this country is that parents are not allowed to discipline their children. Those that try are charged with a crime by our omni-present government.

As the parent of a handicapped child, we both suffered ridicule from the ignorant, but this is crazy! We learned to rise above stupid ridicule.
Freedom of speech and freedom of expression seems to have been ignored by the Judge, and as such he needs to be removed from the bench for violating the person´s freedom to act stupidly.

Jerry Lewis made a career out of making fun of the handicapped, as did Red Skelton. Tim Conway pretended to be retarded on Momma´s Place, the carol burnett thing where her husband was a hardware store owner, and Tim worked for him.
On the old Andy Griffith show, Gomer was mildly retarded, as was Goober.Otis was the town drunk. and Pre3sident Zero said he bowled like a retarded person.
Lock them up!

The man sentenced is 43 years old! HE IS the parent! He deserves to go to jail. Nothing else in his 43 years seems to have made an impression. Atta boy, your honor.

Good. Wish it could be longer. What a mean cruel man, and he is passing that attitude on to his son. Disgraceful. Well done Judge.

Man kept doing it. What is the alternative? Punch his lights out and go to jail yourself? We´re talking about a disabled girl.

#6,

That would have been the best way to handle it in days gone by. Bailey´d get a throttling from the little girl´s father and that would be the end of it.

Trouble is, these days, Mr. Bailey would sue and win on the basis that he was unfairly picked on due to his own disability - Arsehat syndrome!

#5 and #7, the man did not break the law. He may be a horse´s patoot but his trangression was not criminal and he contends that his son was bullied by the girl´s family in the first place. We have no way of knowing. The courtroom is no place to handle this problem and if I were a Canton taxpayer I would be disgusted to know that my money was used for such a frivolous case. This is the type of behavior to be better dealt with by shunning the individual, not bringing in the police.

In Soviet Russia you could drink alcoholic beverages on public beaches and at work.

In Communist America you can´t walk with a limp if you´re deemed healthy but stupid.

Free Americans of the past wouldn´t let this stand.

I don´t care if this guy was three or forty three.
I don´t care if this guy had the IQ of 400 or -4.
I don´t care if this guy mates with rock piles like a former Arkansawyer president.

Wanna gain the respect of the world? Incarcerate everyone you don´t like, just like the USSR of the fifties.

If he had been kneecapped on the spot and limped for six or eight months, then perhaps the joy of mocking would escape him in the future. He is not however a criminal, and kneecapping is a criminal act, but he would have been worthy of it.

Just read a few other articles on this, so for those folks who think the law should not be used here....

This has been going on continuously, this was not a one time thing. This is how the grandmother was able to tape it.

The adult made a hostile environment for this little girl, and just like workplace hostility, people are protected by the law.

You CANNOT repeatedly create a hostile, intimidating environment in a public space.

While I don´t like big brother/nanny state, that is the law.

The guy was a jerk and deserved to go to jail.

That doesn´t mean it is good for our society that he DID go to jail. Allowing that kind of power to a judge is not in anyone´s best interest. The judge should be overruled and also fired.

Saying that he shouldn´t have been sent to jail is NOT the same thing as "being on his side." Taking a logical look at the end result of activist judges ruling to political correctness rather than the law does not make anyone a jerk.

Neighborhoods have (or used to have) ways of dealing with a jerk. It is also clear that only the people involved really have the history of both families to consider. Perhaps they really did finally have enough of being bullied by this family and were giving some back. Or perhaps not. We just can´t know and neither can that judge.

I was a bully once. I thought Charlie would be an easy mark, so I "went after" Charlie like the dog that I was.

Charlie was a farm boy far tougher than I imagined.

Once he had me on the ground looking up, he began to kick the breakfast out of me. He used considerable real estate to accomplish his mission of reinforcing his future safety.

Each of the two or more dozen kicks to my torso, and head, reminded me of what kind of behavior is acceptable in civil society.

Throughout Charlie´s exercise, he never said a word - but I got the message.

Neither one of us deserved jail, or a meeting with pistol packing authorities.

My bullying days were over and Charlie travels in a private jet these days.

The White House said that President Obama was looking forward to addressing the annual conference hosted by the Rev. Al Sharpton, amid reports the civil rights leader worked as a confidential informant for the FBI. Asked if there were any “second thoughts” about allowing the president to go ahead and speak at Sharpton´s National Action Network conference, after the media attention on Sharpton, White House press secretary Jay Carney replied “no.” “Reverend Sharpton and the National Action Network have made significant contributions to civil rights efforts, and the president looks forward to appearing at the conference,” he told

The Wall Street Journal strongly suggested Wednesday that opponents of "comprehensive" immigration reform are mere racists, in a slew of commentary prompted by the controversy over former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush´s remark this week that illegal immigration was an "act of love." Though the Journal editorial page is often quite conservative, it frequently criticizes the Tea Party, and it tends to favor a liberal policy on immigration reform. In an editorial entitled "Jeb Bush´s Immigration Heresy," the Journal´s editorial writers assert that Bush has "already got a better immigration message than the self-defeating "self-deportation" crowd that cost the GOP so

WASHINGTON — Returning once again to a grief-stricken corner of America, President Barack Obama is reprising his role as chief comforter, mourning with families of those killed last week at Fort Hood and offering solace to the nation. It´s a duty that Obama has had to fulfill far too often. Tucson. Aurora. Newtown. Boston. Washington Navy Yard. Fort Hood — twice. The names of these communities have all become synonymous with tragedy in the years since Obama took office, each challenging the president to find ways to impart meaning to senseless death.

Even as the IRS faces growing heat over Lois G.

In one case the Office of Special Counsel, which investigates federal employees who conduct politics on government time, said it was “commonplace” in a Dallas IRS office for employees to have pro-Obama screensavers on their computers, and to have campaign-style buttons and stickers at their office. In another case, a worker at the tax agency’s

People are continuing to debate fiercely what Ryan said and whether he meant to propagate racially coded explanations of poverty´s roots. But put that aside for a moment. Here´s what he was right about: There is indeed a culture in America that is pathological and now threatens our social fabric. It´s not the culture of poverty, though. It´s the

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not
