Roscommon County (Michigan) Jail

While in court, a friend of mine was told by a judge, “I’m going to throw you in jail if you don’t enter a plea in ten seconds.” My friend asked for clarification of the nature of the proceedings, so he could understand the question before answering it. Instead, the judge threw him in jail…for asking a question…for 30 days.

This was yesterday in Michigan and he’s still in jail now.

I just want people to see that sheriffs and bailiffs are cops too, and should be held accountable for enforcing the Nazi style orders of corrupt judges.

Thanks Cop Block, :)
