Cruel & unusual punishment

Nathan MalletIf George Bush is still looking to fill one of those vacant Supreme Court seats, we may have the perfect candidate. Municipal Court Judge Joan Synenberg of Cleveland may be one of the most progressive judges on the bench today.

Synenberg sentenced one Nathan Mallet to perform 150 hours of community service for running out onto the field during a Cleveland Browns home game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers earlier this year because he was mad that his Browns were getting stomped by the Steelers. Mallet is also banned from attending any Browns games in any city for the next five years.

But there’s more, and it’s a kicker. Mallet was sentenced to three days in jail, commencing on February 3rd, and he may not watch television or listen to the radio during that period. That means, Mallet won’t be able to watch or listen to the Super Bowl.
