30 days in prison or wear massive sign in public for 80 hours

?quality=80&strip=all&strip=all

Better than sitting in a prison cell? (Picture: WKBN)
A judge ordered a man to wear an enormous sandwich board reading ‘I AM A THIEF I STOLE FROM WALMART’.



Greg Davenport, of Liberty Township, Ohio, pleaded no contest to a theft charge after attempting to steal a 52-inch television from a Wal-Mart in December.

The judge gave him a choice: spend 30 days in prison or wear a large sign outside the supermarket for eight hours a day over ten days of his choosing.



Davenport, 44, said wearing a sign is better than sitting a jail cell, and he isn’t embarrassed anyway.
‘I stole, I got punished. That’s it,’ he told FOX News.

1. Had the audacity to take from the Walton Empire.




The judge wanted to get a few points there.

2. I believe he made the right choice

At lease he's honest, that's a good thing. Stealing not so good.

3. I can think of a few others for whom this might be fitting

and that would start with the Walton Family and their company.

4. The Waltons should be right beside him

And they should hold signs saying "I am a thief. I steal from taxpayers by paying sub standard wages that have to be subsidized by your tax dollars. I bribe the politicians to make this possible."

7. Go to a different Walmart far away from home.

 

10 hours a day x 8 days.

8. I'm stuck at the part about "steal a 52-inch television".

How does anyone do that? Won't fit in a pocket or purse. Just balls-to-the-wall pick it up and walk out?

But kudos to the guy for owning up to it - ‘I stole, I got punished. That’s it,’ he told FOX News.
