That’s a Jailin’

Did you know that wearing a hat can get you thrown in jail for life? Did you know that if you call a court “a joke,” that you can be jailed for 60 days? Oh, no, not in a communist country, right here in the so-called “Land of the Free.”

And yes, I’m completely serious. Both of these things have happened in the past two days.

In the first case, one Pete Eyre was wearing a hat. He wasn’t bothering anyone else. He wasn’t harming anyone. He wasn’t putting anyone in danger. Heck, his hat wasn’t even blocking anyone’s view of anything. A man told Pete to remove his hat. He refused. So he was beaten and thrown in jail. That was yesterday. Today, the judge decided that Pete would stay in jail for the rest of his life. Yes, that would be in America. New Hampshire, to be exact.

In the second case, another person, Ademo, was watching the decision that the judge was making in the above case (to keep Pete in jail for the rest of his life for the crime of wearing a hat). Ademo, seeing that the judge was a total fool, and seeing that the judge was going to jail his friend for life, got up, and walked out of the court. Well, he tried to walk out of the court. On his way out, he said something about the court being a joke. The same fool judge then threw Ademo in jail for 60 days. Yes, you read that correctly — 60 days in jail for calling a courtroom “a joke.”

And no, there will be no “winning in court,” or “lawsuits” or “settlements.” You see, these people are all 100% immune from the very system they support. While this judge probably deserves to be tarred and feathered, there is no chance he will face any discipline in any way — because other judges, who like having unlimited power, would have to rule that he did something wrong. If I were to see this judge on the street, I would certainly let him know what an absolute fool he was. Of course, that would likely get me thrown in jail for a few months as well.

So, next time you’re walking around, believing you’re in a free country, think of Ademo and Pete. They’re spending lengthy time in jail for the serious crimes of wearing a hat, and saying that the court is a joke. And you keep telling yourself that you live in a free country, because you’re not going to convince me.

    It is ridiculous that the gestapo cops acted this way. The guy should have removed his hat but that was no way to treat him.

    As they identify as anarchists I imagine they are looking for this kind of stuff.

    I think the whole idea of contempt is ridiculous because it can’t be reviewed and you have no defense. You have to serve the time. You should have some recourse so that judges do not abuse their power.

    They need to be replaced every few years so we do not have judicial tyranny.

    And I agree, if I ran into him on the street I would tell him what I think and he would play hell having me arrested.

    Sorry Mr. Ogre, but I disagree with you. We are to obey authority and if this man was some type of authority in this courtroom than Pete should have obeyed him without any argument. While the police seemed to be rougher than they had to be, the reason may be that Pete was rebellious.

    • Blake says:

      Barbara, while I hold to the notion that laws should be obeyed, it was Jefferson who once said that it was our duty to dis-obey tyrannical laws, and if the judge was being tyrannical in his court,( and the LIFE IN JAIL for not removing a hat sounds a bit dictatorial to me), then I can see the point of being upset with the judge.
      I would have said the court was a joke as well, and I would have gotten the sixty days also- you have to understand, these judges are also public SERVANTS, and need to listen to their masters a bit more. Perhaps if they did, there wouldn’t be outbursts like that, would there?

  3. Ogre says:

    Barbara, this is not about disagreement. You can claim that you disagree with me, but what you’re actually saying is that you want me jailed. And you want other people to beat me or kill me if I don’t go willingly. I know that’s not what you meant, but that is clearly what you are advocating.

    You think that we are to obey our masters and those who do not get beaten, killed, or jailed. Blind obedience to authority is not freedom, it is complete slavery. You, Barbara, support slavery, period.

    • Big Dog says:

      I do know there is a rule in the courtrooms I have been in to remove hats. I do not know if it is a law but I know it is a rule of the court.

      The guy got “life” because he is being held until he identifies who he is. If he tells them who he is then he will not be in jail for life.

      • Blake says:

        Hey BD- If we do not have to identify ourselves when we vote, why does this guy have to ID himself to the court? Just because some little Hitler in a black robe was having a PMS moment? Seems like overkill to me- just sayin’.

        • Ogre says:

          Indeed, Blake. The courtroom is complete and total tyranny — when a judge can jail people for wearing a hat, and for offending the judge, there is no chance of justice. This incident has just made me have even less respect for the court system. It shows that no matter what I do, the court will follow the whims of a judge. I have no defense, no chance of justice or reasonableness.

      • Ogre says:

        The system broke Pete. He identified, and they freed him after 3 days. However, he has to return to be tried and sentenced for the crime of wearing a hat.
