Maybe she was trying to go for a kill-streak multiplier? Bet the stoopid judge didn't think of that.

from other articles about this, she has done this repeatedly and the police were monitoring that specific area solely for the purpose of catching her doing it again.

She should be barred from ever driving again, and should be put in stocks in front of the courthouse so people can throw rotten fruit at her.

I watched a guy drive on the sidewalk when he was passing in a no-passing zone and another car cut in front of him to do the same thing. They were lined up

A
...
B D
==
C
...

A = car driving on sidewalk (headed right)
... = row of telephone poles
B = car passing in no-passing zone (headed right)
D = car in proper lane (headed left)
= = double yellow line
C = slow moving vehicle in proper lane (headed right)

Driver A had been merely in the wrong lane, passing in a no passing zone, but car B cut in front of him and he had to sweve onto the sidewalk to avoid a collision.

From the article:


Court records show a Cleveland Municipal Court judge on Monday ordered 32-year-old Shena Hardin to stand at an intersection for two days next week.

In other words... YIPPIE-KI-YAY, SHENA HARDIN

She should lose her license permanently if she has done something this absurd more than once, and/or outside of imminent life and death circumstances.

The fine was only $250? In California your ticket for speeding is at least $140 and that is before trying to run over children.

When they give her licence back, they should make it a condition that she has to have a magnetic sign on her car that says "CAUTION: IDIOT DRIVER" they could back it up with mandatory jail time if she's caught without it, and put a note in her record so the cop will know if / when she gets pulled over.

As much as I find these "Judge sentences criminal to walk around with a sign" stories to be entertaining, I always wonder: how is that legally possible? What part of the law allows them to do anything other than give out jail time, fines, that sort of thing?

I imagine a lot of them are plea deals of some sort. So instead of a ton of community service or a short jail term, she has the public humiliation option.

Usually the deal is, the formal sentence is jail but the sentence is suspended on the condition that you do something. So you rape a girl and the judge sentences you to 20 years with the sentence suspended for a year on condition that you wear a sign saying "legitimate rape is not funny." If you comply and wear the sign the sentence is discharged after a year and you are free. If you insist on exercising your right to laugh at rape you go to prison.

a NJ guido, a warehouse worker pulled his Mustang 5.0 into the parking lot way late from lunch. pissed off warehouse manager Chuck demanded to know where Jerry had been. DeMartino explains he was detained by the police.

Jerry was tired of waiting behind a school bus that kept stopping to unload students. Next stop Jerry says frig this and pulls out and passes the school bus. A police cruiser in opposing line of traffic pulls in front of Jerry, who goes around him and keeps driving.

Police light up the siren, pulls genius DeMartino over. "didn't you see me pull out in front of your car?" --'yeah says Jerry, I figured you were responding to a call', totally oblivious. It took the policeman almost 45 minutes to write out the fist full of tickets Jerry earned that day.

That doesn't answer the question of WHY she can do that. What part of the legal code says you can accept public humiliation as your penalty? I wouldn't think the judge or lawyers for either side could propose something that isn't a standard penalty like fines, jail time, etc. I mean, next time I am in traffic court, should I offer to wash the judge's car if exchange for not having to pay my ticket? Maybe he could make me pick up trash along the highway instead...
