Whether you agree with law enforcement or not, it’s the law, and you would think everyone would respect that.

Not this guy. But, is this sentencing for his crime over the top?

After calling a police officer a “pig” and giving the officer “an obscene hand gesture,” Steven H. Thompson was sentenced to standing on a street corner with a pig. The pig was to wear a sign reading “This is not a police officer.” The incident occurred in 2002, while police were responding to a disturbance call in Thompson’s neighborhood.

Ironically, Thompson’s unusual sentence was dished out by the same Ohio judge who sentenced Jeremy Sherwood to standing blindfolded in front of a adult entertainment stop.
