A man upset with a guilty ruling in a Bucks County traffic case this week filed a different, messier type of appeal: he stuffed a toilet with paper, flooding the district court's bathroom, according to state police at Dublin. Everett Jackson, 26, of Philadelphia, was in the Nockamixon Township courtroom of District Judge M. Kay Dubree on Monday where he was found guilty of disregarding traffic control devices and ordered to pay more than $200. Upset, Jackson went into the men's bathroom, stuffed a toilet with a roll of toilet paper and paper towels and then left the courtroom, police said. The toilet overflowed. Police will be charging Jackson with institutional vandalism.

WHAT YOU SAY?!
Tax payers propety? Is that a joke?
People in courts are treated like the enemy by the government employee tax parasites that work in courts...Bullet proof glass, CCTV cameras, you get sniffed, scopped, x-rayed and searched just walking into a court, as the tax payers are treated like enemy prisoners.
Look at the courts nowadays....They've got more cash registers than a super Walmart, all supporting lottery style government salaries and government retirement pensions.
Tax payers property? Thanks for the laugh..
My taxes go for the upkeep of those buildings. I’ve been in the local courthouse very recently, it was less hassle than walking through the airport. I went under a metal detector and then on my way into the office I needed to go to. I still think it was childish, even if he was frustrated and mad about the ticket. I wouldn’t support my teenage son if he’d done something like that after speeding and being ticketed.
The more common prank is to leave a floater or to c*ap in the water tank. They’ll smell it but never find it.
You pay your taxes every time you are cited with another revenue ticket.
And the fees are going up and up. And like a phone bill, they will tack on things like “court costs” even if you do not go to court and instead apply to take defensive driving.
Yes. It is about the salaries. Lawyers give a lot of money to campaigns and it keeps their practices busy too.
Sounds like you went to junior high with one of the Weather Underground.
Ya mean to pay to government unions that support these government over paid janitors?
My taxes go for the upkeep of those buildings.
Your taxes are being used to support the bloated salaries and opulent government retire pensions of judges, government lawyers, interpreters for illegal aliens, over paid court reporter and for tens of thousands of government employees to operate the cash registers at these courts.
Your courts must be different where you live. I have a friend who is a court reporter, she earns about $25,000 a year, working FT, been doing it for 20 years. There is one cashier and she’s also a clerk in our courthouse. They not only do the payments for tickets and fines, but things such as payments for business name registration. We have a beautiful old courthouse that was built in 1874 that is, I’m sure, terribly inconvenient for the employees but it is well-cared for. I can only base my observations on my experience locally.
Good grief! LOL
Those darn NJ politicians!
