RoseAnn V. Shawiak
A Judge finally seated on his throne - twenty minutes late - yet taking on the first person unlucky enough to be placed in his courtroom.
Passing judgement and a fine upon another public person who cannot pay the fine in full.
Judge decides to allow a payment plan - financing it by adding an additional twenty dollars to the fine for interest.
Since when did our government - our judicial system - become a financial institution?
