I copied this because it may disappear soon on CL, can any of the loyal MP readers validate what this poster is saying? It appears today’s soldiers are getting harassed like so many really do in the parole system hoping they will snap. They may be right about most not getting treated like this, these are the career criminals who bring a circle of cash to the courts where they are known on a first name basis, all others are harassed for the hope they will fall under a more severe case of control as a way to silence the truth.
We have seen the TRUTH come out from one APA leader who did this, do we need to expose more? Hopefully now that this is out there some feel the same need as this poster to get it out there?
If this Court is working like this, then you must be free to tell your story! – We have your backs here in the MP group on facebook. Feel free to comment!, you will not be silenced here, or in this group – https://www.facebook.com/groups/MansfieldersPerspective/
BULLSHIT MANSFIELD COURT… (MANSFIELD, OHIO)
They have this thing called Veterans Court at the city building for Veterans.
What is so stupid about it is, here is how they handle it;
The veteran is found guilty of anything from public intox, to disorderly, recklaess op, DUI, nothing really serious.
They have to pay close to 600.00 to be in this system, because if they dont then they are threatened with jail time.
They show up every other week to report, they have to see their probation officer, and they have to go before the judge also EVERY TIME, yes before the judge every time, and they have to explain to the judge how their life is going, and the judge bewilders them sometimes, or just out right disrespects them.
This is nothing but harassment on the vet, some of those veterans are going through treatment at the VA for issues from being injured in Iraq, and then have to go through their court issues every other week, as if they are being found guilty, and face the judge again every time.
But here is the kicker for you;
There are people that have never served in the military, there are multiple offenders that are constantly in the system, that report once a month, the only time they saw the judge was when they was found guilty or plead out, and they never have to go before the judge again unless they break the law again.
They report to see their P.O. for may be 20 minutes at that, while these veterans sit up there for 2-3 hours to see their P.O. and the judge every other week, and yet they say its fair and equal treatment for all.
HOW IS THIS FAIR AND EQUAL TREATMENT OF OUR MEN AND WOMEN THAT SERVE OUR COUNTRY TO HAVE TO GO THROUGH SUCH HARASSMENT, TO HAVE TO GO BEFORE THE JUDGE EVERY OTHER WEEK, AS IF THEY ARE THE WORSE CRIMINAL IN THE TOWN, WHEN THE REPEATED OFFENDERS ARE JUST SLAPPED ON THE WRIST, AND GIVEN AN EASY RIDE ON THEIR PROBATION STATUS.
My buddy that is going through this, is having problems sleeping, he has said after each and every visit up there, he doesn’t sleep for days, he hates going up there, and all he got arrested for was an public intox.
Seems like it to me that it should be the other way around, and not treat our men and women in this manner that was willing to give their life for our country, or who almost died fighting for our country.
I would love to know how much money the city is getting for each vet in this program from the state, and the Government as that could be why, it could be an major incentive for them.
I would like to know why the local Veterans groups are allowing our Veterans to be singled out and treated this way, and the ones that did not serve are getting a pass.
