Maybe Pinkey Carr is onto something.
The Cleveland judge who last year ordered a woman to hold a sign calling herself an “idiot” for driving on a sidewalk to get around a stopped school bus, has issued a sign sentence again this week.
Richard Dameron is getting 90 days in jail for threatening officers in 911 calls, but Judge Carr also ordered him to stand in front of a police station.
“I was being an idiot and it will never happen again,” the sign will say.
