Ohio man who threatened police holds 'idiot' sign
A Cleveland judge sentenced Richard Dameron to a public shaming.
CLEVELAND (AP) — A man who threatened officers in Cleveland is making a court-ordered public apology by standing near a police station with a sign describing himself as an idiot.
A judge had ordered 58-year-old Richard Dameron to stand outside a local police station with a sign bearing an apology. He began the vigil Monday and must stand outside for three hours each day for the rest of the week.
Bing: Dumb things criminals do
Dameron was convicted of threatening officers in 911 calls.
His public shaming isn't the first of its kind in the city. The Cleveland judge who sentenced Dameron previously made a woman wear an "idiot" sign in public for driving around a school bus.

Welcome to the new pro Nazi progressive America. Whoever in America never has done nothing improper, have the right to praise this old Nazi way to humiliate people.
Right people? justice don't have nothing to do with insulting human dignity. The man make a mistake, do all of you 'perfect' individuals feel the need to joint the Inquisition ah?
This case don't show an individual criminal action, but really prove how we as nation are departing from the values of the American character, starting with the judicial system.
He's NOT "an Idiot."
He's either a "****" or a "dumb ****."
Hopefully for all of us, he won't live long enough to celebrate his next birthday.
Anyone who thinks this punishment is worse than jail A) either takes themselves way too seriously to where they would rather lose their freedom, spend approximately 16 to 18
hours a day in a 6 X 10 room with one other person and a toilet, eat **** food, never have peace or quiet, and be vunerable to abuse of all types that generally don't happen in civilized society or B) have never been to jail.
The Eighth Amendment:
Excessive bail shall not be required,
nor excessive fines imposed,
nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
This judge issued a unconstitutional ruling that is a infringement on his rights.
luke warm on the idea of public displays in place of fines, I really dislike people who call other idiots, and that would extend to a judge making a man call himself an idiot.
doing some idiodic, and being an idiot are two different things.
The judge must be an "idiot" :)
