U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker sentenced Shawn Gementera to two months in prison and 100 hours of unusual community service for stealing mail from homes in San Francisco.

As his community service, Judge Walker ordered Gementera to spend 100 hours in front of a United States Postal Service office in San Francisco wearing a sandwich board bearing the words: "I have stolen mail. This is my punishment," the U.S. Attorney for Northern California said in a statement.

lol Willie. I love stories like that. We had some teenagers in my neck of the woods that had to walk down the street with a donkey for vandalizing a church. LINK

What a great idea for murderers and such on death row.

Put them out on the street with a board saying I molested children and killed cause I am a wack job with no future. See how long they last??

A possible alternative to fixing the overcrowded prison systems.

Making the punishment fit the crime without violating the Constitutional right concerning "cruel & unusual punishment"...That's true justice!


Good find W1S...
