The Judge Gets It Right...!

Once in a great while, even a judge can get it right!

I have to applaud not only the judge, but Mr. Fried, who stood his ground and refused to be bullied!

This is the type of folks that we certainly need more of in this world! This man, knowing the actions he took would be punished, did what he thought was right and in the end...justice prevailed and he was backed up by a judge with some backbone!

Kingman man acquitted of trespass, gets pitchfork back

KINGMAN - A Kingman man gets his pitchfork back after he's acquitted in a trespassing case.

Mohave County Judge Pro-tempore Paul Julien ruled March 5 that Mervin Fried was not guilty of third-degree trespassing.

The Daily Miner
reports Fried was arrested for attempting to bring a pitchfork into the county supervisor's building on Feb. 16, 2010.

Fried was asked by County Manager Ron Walker to leave his pitchfork outside. Fried was arrested when he refused and tried to enter the building with the pitchfork.

The judge ruled Walker did have the authority to restrict access to the building.

However, Julien wrote Walker's decision allowing members of the public with holstered handguns access to the building but denying access to the defendant because he had a holstered' pitchfork was arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable.

I would imagine that the county manager was made the laughing stock around the "good ol' boys" circle! The message here couldn't be more clear...Leave The Working Man Alone!

Coffee on the patio again this morning! It's going back up to the 70's again!

About time a judge gets something right. Most are too politically correct to render the right decision. Thanks for the neat story and have a great Saturday.

Hey Dizzy...
we certainly could use some more that think like this.

Too bad we probably would have to hunt hard to find them!

Thanks for coming over today!
