America, I Love You, But Your Police and Your Hyper Regulated, Micro-Managed Lives Are Out of Control

American woman sent to jail for overgrown lawn. 


Now, this fine woman tried to take a stand, she is no shrinking violet, and look what happened:

"On Tuesday, Holloway turned herself in and made an appeal to city officials."

"But Holloway says she was stunned when Judge Terry Vann handed down a five-day jail sentence, before amending it Tuesday to six hours. She says she offered to do five days of community service instead of jail time, but Vann refused her offer, insisting that she serve the time behind bars — although Vann noted that she is not a criminal and that it is not a criminal case."

“It’s not right,” she said. “Why would you put me in jail with child molesters and people who have done real crimes because I haven’t maintained my yard up to the city’s standards?”

"Holloway said she feels like she’s “being bullied,” and claims she was not read her rights or told she could have a lawyer present."

America is currently being governed by imbeciles and Americans are currently being judged not by a jury of peers by any stretch of the imagination, but a judiciary that mocks and disdains individual rights, personal liberty and indeed, makes a mockery of the American constitution.
