This is one of the most outrageous abuse of authority for political gain, I have ever seen. The prosecutor is apparently using the destruction of this young man's life as a rung in his political ladder. In times when we want and encourage our children to succeed in life, someone chooses a successful young person to target and destroy. How can we expect our young to respect authority when that very authority uses and abuses its power against them, thus dashing their hopes and dreams of a successful future in life.

This prosecutor is making a mockery of our own justice system.
And for the judge to prevent this child from seeing his dying grandfather is an atrocity.
This isn't 1939 Germany is it? Because it sure is looking like Jefferson has a prosecutor with a Hitler complex.
Surely you jest

I won't go into the whole Ohio Revised Code thing, clearly-written school board policy on weapons, or the nearly thiry-year-old U.S. Supreme Court relaxing of Fourth Amendment rights in schools, because, well, it would just be a waste of time.

Your comparison of Nazi Germany with Ashtabula County courts is, however, stupid. Yes, I just said that.

There was/is only one person responsible for this defendant's future, and that is he. He has repeatedly chosen to break rules and laws, and his racist actions (rather like Hitler's homies, only a little more global) sealed the deal. So what? Lots of people screw up and later do well in life. Ill-informed, paranoid, and quite possibly sexually frustrated members of the populace who didn't get enough parental attention or didn't make the team want to stir the pot.

Nothing to stir here, people. Keep it moving. And another thing--we really did land on the moon.

Got a link so I may learn more about this and determine which one of the 2 posts is telling the story right? I know that the courts are screwed up in Jefferson so I tend to believe the first writer here, seen to much underhanded crap go on especially if you do not have money for the best lawyer even if you are innocent--money TALKS AND THE OLD BOY SYSTEM WORKS in that court house!
