  • Quo Vadis

    Nearly half of all the “criminals” on this blotter are up on drug charges, the most ridiculous being the ones for marijuana, proving once again that the Medina County Ruling Class maintains their 12th century morality and applies it to the hapless serfs that become entangled in their insane attempts at behavior control, with Draconian penalties for those who do not “conform”. Most of these people need rehab, not prison. Worse yet, they plead out and get 3-5 years probation, which is equally Draconian. To top it off, everyone convicted gets a 5-year drivers license suspension? What’s next, The Stocks, public whippings, The Pillory, The Iron Maiden, branding with red-hot irons ala “The Scarlet Letter”? Just goes to show you what an insidiously medieval mentality pervades Medina Countys Prosecutors, Judges, Police, and dungeons. A true template for an oppressive society. Heinrich Himmler would be proud.
