    Jail, or church?

    Some career criminals do time. One in Iowa has already been in the slammer — so now he's doing church.
    Pachino Hill, 29, must go to Baptist services for eight consecutive Sundays — plus pay a fine and be on probation for a year — for leading police on car chase in October, according to The Quad-City Times.
    The Davenport man's long and violent record dating back to his early teens includes manslaughter, assault and other crimes. The latest traffic infraction was his second such cat-and-mouse with cops in as many years, both of which landed him charges of driving while barred.
    Scott County Associate Judge Christine Dalton handed down Hill's unusual sentence — a program offered by Third Missionary Baptist Church — on Wednesday. If he fails to complete it, he faces up to two years in prison.
    “Let’s give it a shot,” the newspaper quoted the judge as saying. “I’m all about one more chance.”

    He who signs the cheques, makes the rules.
    He who makes the rules, has the power.
    He who has the power, has the money.

    How many chances does he get? Judge is an idiot.
    Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me

    Not only is the judge an idiot...

    How the hell is this not a constitutional problem? Compelling the guy to attend a specific church is BS!
