An Ohio man claims that a Judge’s punishment has ruined his life. From WKRC-12 comes a story of the Ohio bully.
62-year-old Edmond Aviv has feuded with his neighbor for the past 15 years. The most recent issue related to neighbor Sandra Pugh’s vent dryer which was irritating Aviv. He continued to complain of the putrid smell and decided to blow the smell back on to her property. So, he hooked up kerosene to a fan for that purpose.
Ultimately, Aviv was charged and pled guilty to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge. His neighbor claimed that she was fearful of him because of that and many other instances. There had been evidence that he had spit on her, thrown dog feces on her windshield and once even smeared feces on the wheelchair ramp that was used by her adopted children, who live with cerebral palsy.
After Aviv pled guilty to the charge, the judge ordered him to also serve 15 days in jail and undergo anger management classes. Aviv also had to issue an apology. He did that. What bothered him most was that the judge also made him stand for five hours at a traffic intersection with a sign that read, “I AM A BULLY! I pick on children that are disabled and I am intolerant of those that are different from myself. My actions do not reflect an appreciation for the diverse South Euclid community that I live in”.
Aviv claims that, “The judge destroyed me”. He also felt that it was unfair that the judge made him stand in the intersection with the sign, after cars came by and continually beeped their horns at him. Several pedestrians even stopped to take his picture.
His neighbor has still expressed her fears to the judge in a letter. She wrote, “I am very concerned for the safety of our family”. She said that she just wants to live in peace. For now, they continue to be neighbors. And, this story became a national news story.
For pic o’ day, here is a pickpocket:
