Lousy. Just Lousy.
CLOVER: Clover Korean War vet gets 30 days in jail for junk on property | Local News | Rock Hill Herald Online
CLOVER — Johnny Ramsey, the 79-year-old Korean War veteran who collected and sold junk to pay for medications for his ailing wife, said just minutes before court Thursday evening: “If I have to go to jail, I guess I am ready.”
An hour later, Ramsey left a Clover courtroom in shackles – sentenced to 30 days in the York County jail for not cleaning up his yard eight months after a judge ordered him to get rid of the junk.
Clover Town Judge Melvin Howell ruled after a contempt of court hearing Thursday that Ramsey had refused to comply with court orders to both clean up his property and pay a fine for contempt.
The sentence will be served on weekends, but it started immediately after court was finished Thursday night.
Clover Police officers handcuffed Ramsey – whose nephew is a sheriff’s deputy, whose son is in Afghanistan on his fourth deployment to war – and walked him outside the court building and put him in a police car.
Then a burly officer thumped on the trunk, and the police took Clover’s junk man to jail.
It just makes me sick at heart that something like this can happen in America.
It would have been impossible in the America in which I grew up.
As for any of you statist rule-of-ten-trillion-laws pricks who think this is great, go fuck yourselves.

Maybe the judge needs to go to jail instead!
Women routinely receive a FREE PASS for murder, mayhem, or any other heinous crime. Men got to jail for a messy yard. The notion of gender equality is a pathetic, nauseating SHAM.
