Why can’t we have judges like this in New Zealand?
A man who threatened police officers in Cleveland has been forced to stand near a police station with a sign describing himself as an idiot.
A judge in Ohio ordered 58-year-old Richard Dameron to stand outside a local police station with a sign bearing an apology.
Dameron, who was convicted of threatening officers in 911 calls, began the vigil on Monday and must stand outside for three hours each day for the rest of the week.
Speaking of his punishment, he said:
“I’ll stand up and be a man and do what I’ve got to do and get it over with. I apologised to all the officers. I get drunk a lot of times and I make a fool out of myself.”
Bold black writing on the yellow sign reads:
“I apologise to Officer Simone and all police officers for being an idiot calling 911 threatening to kill you. I’m sorry and it will never happen again.”
His public shaming is not the first of its kind in the city.
Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Pinkey Carr who sentenced Dameron, previously made a woman wear an “idiot” sign in public for driving onto the pavement to overtake a school bus.
Apparently alcohol was involved….you think? Surely he qualifies for the key to the city in Palmerston North with a cunning stunt like that:
A Northern Territory man may be flown to Adelaide after a party trick involving setting off fire crackers between his buttocks went badly wrong.
The 23-year-old man was at a party in the Darwin suburb of Rapid Creek on Saturday night when he decided to let the cracker off, NT Police said.
“It appears a party was in full progress when a young male decided to place a firework between the cheeks of his bottom and light it,” said Senior Sergeant Garry Smith.
“What must of seemed to be a great idea at the time has backfired, resulting in the male receiving quite severe and very painful burns to his cheeks, back and private bits,” Snr Sgt Smith said.
Alcohol was a possible factor involved in the stunt, police said.
It looks like the Police are going to fill their quota for ticketing un-roadworthy¬†vehicles¬†tonight. If brains were¬†dynamite¬†these tools wouldn’t have enough to blow their nose:
Boy racers are planning a “big boy racer car cruze” from Porirua to Wellington tonight for Daniel Briant, whose car was the first to be crushed under new boy racer legislation.
Police crushed the 19-year old’s Nissan Laurel yesterday sparking an outcry on Facebook.
Police revealed Briant was caught doing multiple burnouts in the middle of State Highway 1 near Paraparaumu in front of an off-duty police officer and children.
Less than three hours after receiving his third strike from Porirua District Court, he was back behind the wheel, performing a burnout.
Briant posted a message on his Facebook page on Wednesday lamenting the loss of his beloved car:
“oh how I miss you Laurel lol; fun times FTP.”
A supporter castigated the police, “f…. the police.”
Tonight’s ride was advertised on the Facebook site “Porirua Buy/Sell/Trade”, stating “stop the car crushin law. 9-10.30pm. Big boy racer cruze – we are doing this 4 the guy who got his kar krushed in lower hutt.”
In their wisdom, TV3 decided that claims of brutality from this woman were legitimate enough to warrant a feature on the news.
Before you watch and decide for yourself if there is a case to answer, here are the facts as described (very quietly) in the story:
Having read all that, watch the story and try and work out where the reporter’s sympathies lie.
Interesting, wasn’t it? And a special “stupidest comment of the week so far” award for this reporter, for the line:
“Pahina admits she has broken the law before, but says this is the first time the law has left her broken.”
Well done to all involved in this story. They must be very proud.
She is dumber than a sack of hammers and has finally worked out how to use Google…seems she has found the blog post and she isn’t happy. In fact here is the email trail of last nights abuse.
This has now been handed to the police along with the txt message threats she delivered as well.

Then she followed up with a real threat, the one that made me drop into the local constabulary with a print out of everything plus the txt msgs. I have also let her ISP know that she has used their service to issue threats of GBH.

Oh dear…how dumb can you get…didn’t they notice all the mud and water and sand?
Three Japanese tourists came unstuck on their planned Australian holiday on Thursday when they abandoned their hire car in Moreton Bay after they tried to “drive” to North Stradbroke Island.
The low tide and a GPS navigation system lured them into the bay at Oyster Point at Cleveland.
A firm gravel surface quickly gave way to the renowned bay mangrove mud and the Hyundai Getz was soon up to its axles, but not before they managed to travel about 500 metres.
Their planned adventure to Straddie ended at 11am and the incoming tide soon forced them to seek help and abandon the vehicle.
By 3pm the car was stranded in two metres of water and the subject of much amusement from onlookers on the shore and passing boat and ferry traffic.
The Tokyo students had wanted to take a day trip to Straddie and believed their GPS unit would be able to guide them there. The GPS forgot to mention the 15 kilometres of water and mud between the mainland and the island.
Yuzu Noda, 21, said she was listening to the GPS and “it told us we could drive down there”.
“It kept saying it would navigate us to a road. We got stuck … there’s lots of mud.”

On February 16th, Lord David James of Blackheath (a Conservative life peer) spoke for 11 minutes in the UK House of Lords about a supposed $15 trillion federal reserve conspiracy that involved more gold than has ever been mined. It turned out he had fallen for a widespread scam.
‚ÄúMr. Riyadi has sent me a remarkable document dated February 2006,‚ÄĚ Lord James continued, ‚Äúin which the American Government have called him to a meeting with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.‚ÄĚ That meeting, he said, ‚Äúwas witnessed by Mr Alan Greenspan, who signed for the Federal Reserve Bank of New York of which he was chairman, as well as chairman of the real Federal Reserve in Washington. It is signed by Mr Timothy Geithner as a witness on behalf of the International Monetary Fund. The IMF sent two witnesses, the other being Mr Yusuke Horiguchi.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúThese gentlemen have signed as witnesses,‚ÄĚ he continued, ‚Äúto the effect that this deal is a proper deal. There are a lot of other signatures on the document. I do not have a photocopy; I have an original version of the contract.
‚ÄúUnder the contract, the American Treasury has apparently got the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to offer to buy out the bonds issued to Mr Riyadi to replace the cash which has been taken from him over the previous 10 years. It is giving him $500 million as a cash payment to buy out worthless bonds. That is all in the agreement and it is very remarkable.‚ÄĚ
Riyadi, as the tale continues, supposedly had 750,000 tons of gold backing the $15 trillion the United States took from him to prop up the U.S. dollar.
The World Gold Council, however, estimates the only 165,000 tons of gold have been mined in the history of the world.
I regularly recieve correspondence that is weird, written by tin-foil hat wearers convinced there is a conspiracy here or there. Usually you can tell because they type all in caps, or attach pdf files that look like the old style cut and paste ransom letters. They generally use anonymous email addresses to “protect” their privacy because the SIS or other unnamed government agencies are spying on them. One day I will publish a full selection as a book to show just how bat shit mad they all are.
One recent correspondent is Barbara Faithfull (yes with two l’s). She has been writing about a homosexual and atheist conspiracy to take over the Police, Army, government and New Zealand society, they have a gay agenda don;t you know. I got sick of the tittle tattle and gossiping about this public figure or that public figure and the pro-homosexual tendencies. It is quite pathetic. So I sent her an email. I told her to desist from emailing me.
Only a truly stupid person would continue. And so this morning I¬†received¬†another email from her complaining about my post about marriage equality:
Dear Cameron Slater,
Re today’s item on the Washington State House debate on homosexual “marriage” and your derisive “I’d like to see Bob McCoskrie argue against this”.
I think Mr. McCoskrie would do extremely well, and probably win the debate, if he was to present what is scandalously withheld from the public : the damning evidence of the wider international homosexual political agenda – to deliberately subvert the institution of marriage – which I set out in an e-mail to you on 11th January this year, but which you dismissed as mere “gossip” in your rude and irrational tirade to me of 2nd February.
My email to her on 2 February wasn’t rude or irrational. It provided a logical progression of thought about why she was a deranged bigot, a gossiper and annoying. I was polite but firm. I bCC’d a few other bloggers so they know I was polite but firm. However since she thought that was rude when it was not I thought I would reply to show what rude really looked like, and so here is my reply to a bigot.
To: Barbara Faithfull
You are a fucking slow learner. My reply to you was firm but polite. This one won’t be.
You are a fucking bigot, a single issue annoyance who gives Christians a bad name. Your hatred of people based ont heir sexuality suggests you have issues and ones that require the intervention of medical professionals since it seems you aren;t taking the advice God handed down to us in the Bible.
I asked you not to email me again with your homophobic rants and conspiracy theories and yet as is typical of morons like you you have chosen to ignore that advice. Well you reap what you sow you stupid bigoted irrational cow.
You are as creepy as that old wizened ACT guy who has an unhealthy interest in the sex life of Helen Clark’s husband…you are simply creepy.
As is usual you haven’t actually provided, and neither did any of the commenters on yesterdays blog post, any evidence or discussion that provides a conclusive argument against why two people shouldn’t “marry”. Other than religious bigoted responses that fail every logic test.
Using the procreation example if we logically followed that to its ultimate conclusion then marriage should only be extended to people capable of having children. That would mean that widows and widowers in their 60s would be prevented from marrying in your warped view of the world.
Romans 6:23 explains that the wages of all sin is death.
James 2:10 explains that all sin is equal
What these verses tell me is that your pridefulness and gossiping is as much a sin before the Lord as the dirty poofs you hate so much. The wages of all that sin, including your gossiping is exactly the same…death.
You dear lady are a terrible gossip, emailing bloggers, media, talk show hosts about the sexual preferences of people.
Gossip accuses people. It charges others with wrong. People love to talk about the alleged actions of others. Does the following sound familiar?
Listen to what God says about gossiping accusers: “An ungodly man digs up evil, and it is on his lips like a burning fire (Proverbs 16:27).
Gossip slanders neighbors. It destroys a person’s character or personal reputation. The Bible again tells up what happens to a gossip in Psalm 101:5 “Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, him I will destroy”.
Gossip talks indiscreetly. People who say just anything that comes into their minds spread gossip, especially in emails. “A serpent may bite when it is not charmed; the babbler is no different” (Ecclesiastes 10:11).
In short, gossip is any communication that hurts people. “The words of a talebearer [a gossiper!] are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly” (Proverbs 18:8), King James Version.)
Finally I’ll ask that you read John 8:7 ‚ÄúLet him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.‚ÄĚ
As we have established you are not without sin, you are a dreadful gossip. We have also established that ALL sin is equal and that the wages of sin is death.
Might I suggest you take the words of Jesus as written in John and SHUT THE FUCK UP about other people and let them live their live before God without out the interference of gossiping harpies like yourself.
As far as I am concerned if two people love each other and want to get married then they should be able to…no ifs buts or maybes. If they want a mother in law then they can fill their boots.
What will be extremely amusing is you turning up to an eternity in hell for your gossip and sharing eternity with the inveterate rooter, the dirty old poof and the recalcitrant kiddy fiddler all adamant that you have committed no sin before your own eyes.
I suggest that you let each person live their life knowing that they have only to anser to god rather than to busybody bigots like you.
By all means if you wish to get famous in a bad way keep on emailing me.
Bob Parker is an idiot. Only he would not be able to see the problem with troughing it up on an overseas trip while his city is in turmoil, firstly from ongoing earthquakes but also from his own vainglorious ineptitude and the foolishness of his CEO. Things aren’t helped either when the Mayoress posts the article on her Facebook page as a sort of in your face “nyah,nyah,nyah, I’m going on a trip” attitude.
Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker will take part in a two-week tour of Asia less than a fortnight after a Crown observer was appointed to monitor the city council.
Parker said he was comfortable that his absence would not have a significant impact on the council, despite saying last week that the organisation was “standing on the edge of a precipice”.
Local Government Minister Nick Smith said last week that he had appointed former Nelson mayor Kerry Marshall as a Crown observer to monitor the council and report back to the Government.
The move followed criticism of the council’s performance and calls for Government intervention.
Parker and wife Jo Nicholls-Parker will leave next Tuesday for a tour of several Asian countries, including China, Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia.
The trip has been organised by Christchurch International Airport to encourage more airlines to visit the city.
Airport chief executive Jim Boult said the airport had invited Parker and his wife to take part in the 15-day tour last year, after planning started in mid-2011.
Boult said the couple’s presence had helped the airport to “get in some doors we would otherwise find difficult to get through”.
How about Bob just stays away and doesn’t come back.
