    Default Man gets jail for mocking disabled girl

    This guy is a fucking moron. No question. But should he be in jail? Punishment doesn't suit the crime. What he did was wrong but it didn't break a law. Save room in the jail for threats not immature morons. What ever happened to bring able to speak without fear of jail, isn't that why we are in America? So if you say something stupid or hurt sometimes feelings you go to jail... freedom?



    A northeast Ohio man accused of making fun of a young girl with cerebral palsy has been sentenced to a month in jail.

    Canton Municipal Judge John A. Poulos ordered the maximum sentence for 43-year-old William Bailey, who pleaded no contest Tuesday to reduced misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and aggravated menacing.

    The (Canton) Repository ( http://bit.ly/10Um7Zd ) reports that Bailey was caught on cellphone video at a school bus stop in October making fun of how the 10-year-old disabled girl walks. The video of him seemingly imitating her limp was disseminated online and on local TV news. Bailey denied he was mocking the girl, saying he was reacting to name-calling directed at his 9-year-old son.

    Bailey apologized to the girl and her family in a statement Tuesday.

    A week in general population would have done it. Hell, 24 hours would have sufficed depending on the prison...

    It's absolutely ridiculous that he is going to jail for this. Since when is it illegal to act like a huge douchebag? Welcome to America 2012!

    That being said, in Gavtoria (the fictitious country in my head where I am King), that dude would be sentenced to a week of being repeatedly punched in the face.

    ***Note - Also nice to see that little douchey junior following his father's footsteps in making fun of that handicapped girl.

    after a month in jail he'll be the one walking funny. Then the girl will make fun of the way he walks.

    seriously, it's stupid that he's going to jail for this, but someone should kick the sheeyot out of him anyway just for acting like that.

    Well the good thing is that after this was reported, there were all kind of fundraisers and stuff for this girl. Anti-bullying messages and all that.

    I agree this dude is an ass but there is no way he should do any time. I mean what will happen if a comedian makes fun of somebody in the audience?

    You guys are judging without all the facts. He's not going to jail for making fun of the girl, he's going on an aggravated menacing charge on the mother of the girl. He allegedly threatened the mother by swinging a tow chain and telling her that he was going to "choke her until she stopped twitching." In Ohio a "menacing" charge has a maximum of 30 days in jail.

    For the bus stop incident (making fun of the handicapped girl), he was charged with disorderly conduct--a minor misdemeanor that carries no jail time.

    The guy's a scumbag. I have no problem with him serving time.

    Yeah I have no problem with him doing time for swinging a chain. This is a perfect case for police brutality to be justified.

    Sounds like a complete piece of shit. Hope he gets the crap kicked out of him in prison. Sadly he's a father so you guys are likely stuck with more like him in the future.
