Judge refuses to jail activist who hung banner in Senate building, over objection of US Attorney

• Rawstory
The 60 year-old Bloomfield, NJ resident was convicted May 13 of two misdemeanors—disorderly conduct and unlawfully assembling on Capitol Grounds. He was facing up to three years in prison in today’s sentencing for unfurling two banners saying “Green Jobs Now” and “Get to Work” from the Hart Senate Office Building’s 7th floor into the atrium on Sept. 8, 2009, the day the Senate returned from its summer recess.

Sometimes I do this thing where I look at the front page and I'm just not happy with what I'm seeing. So I let my eyes unfocus and swim in different directions and let the words re-arrange themselves into something I like better. Thus:

"Judge refuses to jail activist who hung banner in Senate building, over objection of US Attorney"

 

can become "Judge hung over building with banner by US Attorney, activist refuses, objection".

And that's the way I see it. Maybe the facts are the facts in your foxhole but I like my version way better.

Judicial nullification is not alien to us. What makes this novel is it's to our benefit.
