Why the hell am I the one being punished?
I'm going to ask for a chance to address the judge. I don't know what, if anything, that will accomplish, but I know this, I will have been respectful of the system and I will have had my say for the record. I know what Walter's stupid story is, as of this morning he is STILL reminding me that, "Nothing happened! You know that!" I don't even bother engaging in a formal debate over what happened, I was there, I remember it plainly. He is either a great liar or he believes that his level of violence was called for. I submit that it was not.
He once again stated, "You could have left, I just didn't want you to take the dog." Well, to that I say:
A. I didn't have the dog in the first place.
B. Even if I was stupid enough to stop and grab the dog on my way AWAY from YOU, your legal remedy was to call the cops, not to prevent me from leaving.
C. IT'S MY FUCKING DOG!
I want my dog back. I need something to take care of right now, something that likes me even when I screw up. That usually only comes in the way of animals. Hey dude, do you want to go to Judge Judy's Court? Let's go. Her remedy is to put the dog down on the floor and see to whom it runs. You know damn well, that dog knows he's mine.
But I digress.
Don't you guys think that I should, at the very least, attend the court hearing being held in my honor?
