CLEVELAND, OH – The woman who got busted driving on a sidewalk to pass a stopped school bus, has completed the second half of her sentence of having to hold a sign in public that warned people about idiots.

For those of you who haven’t been following this story, 32-year-old Shena Hardin got busted using a sidewalk to get around a stopped school bus that was loading and unloading children. She would end up pleading guilty to not stopping for a school bus and reckless operation and ordered to pay $250 in court costs and have her license suspended for 30 days.

But the judge would also add one more stipulation. She ordered Hardin to stand at the intersection of E. 38th Street and Payne Avenue from 7:45 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. this past Tuesday and today while wearing a sign that read, “Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus.”

On Tuesday, Hardin showed up with her sign and was greeted by gawkers and news channels. What they observed was a disinterested Hardin leaning on the sign while she chain smoked cigarettes, listened to music, texted and chatted on the phone. Of course the news was quick to run to the judge who sentenced Hardin to get her thoughts on how Hardin was carrying out her sentence.

The judge wasn’t real pleased with Hardin, stating that it was obvious the woman was remaining defiant and not taking the punishment seriously.

“If I wanted someone standing there for an hour texting and smoking cigarettes, I would have had that as part of her sentence,” Judge Carr told WKYC. “But, clearly, she’s missing the point. Clearly, it’s still a situation where she’s defiant.”

She said she would supervise Hardin’s final day of  sign holding, but later backed out saying she did not want to cause a scene. Hardin was subjected to the occasional taunt and was scolded by the mother of a girl in a wheelchair who was trying to board the school bus when Hardin used the sidewalk to drive around it.

“She has no remorse for what she’s done,” Kelley said. “She’s been texting, smoking her cigarettes, talking on the cell phone. She don’t care. This is no punishment for her.”

They should have made her wear on of those old school sandwich board things. But honestly, that’s the only drawback with public shaming. It really only works against people who have learned shame to begin with.

    I just wonder if she will do it again.

    She was supposed to wear the sign. Maybe the judge didn’t go today because she realized she could make her do the whole thing over properly because she didn’t follow the order to the letter? Hoping but not optimistic.

  • daMonBrooks

    give her a year and a different bus driver

  • Sam

    I bet she was posting Facebook updates boasting about her fifteen minutes of fame. “guess where I am lol”

  • Sam

    We have this problem here too. We have Anti Social Behaviour Orders, which can be issued against idjits who basically just act like dicks to make other people’s lives miserable. They can include things like curfews and restraining orders, but the kind of people who it would have any effect on don’t act like the kind of dick who would get one anyway. The scum of the council estates wear these ASBO’s like a badge of honour – they even work harder to try to get more than their mates. A whole ‘nother kind of keeping up with the Jones’es.

    More’s the pity. One of my colleagues lives on a road where the local criminal family wore short trousers all summer so they could show off the very fetching GPS “leg-irons” they’d been fitted with.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    I would hope that this also ends the stupid, selfish bitch phase of her life, but given her behavior while she was carrying out her sentence, I’m certain that she’s going to go right back to endangering children’s lives because she thinks that her needs are more important than anything else.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    Oh, I guarantee she will.

  • Evan Oswald

    I am a similar age to this Dum-Dum —- and i think it’s sad how this age group of adults doesn’t recognize their fault nor appreciate the value of learning from their mistakes.

    The judge should reimpose the punishment, and extend it to 8 hours per day for the entire period of her license suspension. Held high. Make her tell walkers by about what she did.

    If she acts defiant instill further punishment.

  • Sam

    WTF? What’s with the downvote? Chavs is exactly what a lot of them are!

  • Eliza Berntsen

    ASBO’s should have been cancelled years ago. I think that it’s pretty clear that they do nothing other than actually encourage those idiots to commit crime. I would much rather have public tomatoe throwing, or just tattoo “I’m a F***ing twat” on their foreheads.

  • LuvsHorror

    Should have tattooed it on her forehead.

  • Rachel Ann

    I was just educated on what the Willy Wonka a chav was and I have been somewhat enamored ever since. Thank God for the Jeremy Kyle show lol.

  • Sam

    I like. The Twat Tat, chav equivalent of the Tramp Stamp.

  • Sam

    Lol, first time for everything. Like for me, “Thank God for the Jeremy Kyle show” – that’s the first time i’ve heard that! :)

    Man. Get a few of you in a thread together and the colloquial slang and foreign sayings start flying… :P

    Please in a year’s time those little darlings will be taking guns to school and committing worse crimes than she did!

  • Twisted1

    When she was asked if she wanted to apologize she said “I don’t owe none ya all notin”. Shameless

  • Eliza Berntsen

    If there’s one thing that is guaranteed to make me feel better about my life, it’s JK and his “friends”.

  • http://www.facebook.com/HamsterNinjaofDOOM Alecia Hendricks

    Yeah, it’s totally cool to endanger peoples lives because they might be dicks later.

    Editing to point out sarcasm.

  • Snickering x Hydra

    Wouldn’t it be nice for her to be standing there with her sign…and then a bus stops. Ms. Hardin glares angrily up at the children before lighting another cigarette and turning up her music.

    But wait, what’s this? A driver has pulled up behind the bus, and simply cannot wait for the schoolchildren to disembark / board. “Screw the rules!” This person says as they step on the gas and haphazardly pull onto the sidewalk – where Ms. Hardin is still standing, rebellious and oblivious. What follows is karmic justice :P

  • chikonanklemonitor

    so. whats your point?

  • chikonanklemonitor

    I don’t think there is any way she could have served this sentence that would have been satisfactory for the public.. If she had been out there marching with the sign high over her head then im sure the news would have said she was proud of what she had done. It was a dumb sentence to shame her and I’m pretty sure she’s been shamed. JOB DONE who cares is she did it with vigor…

  • Heather4877

    Yep, she’ll probably behave even more twatish in order to demonstrate how impossible it is to force any humility on her.
    She gonna do what she WANNA DO!

  • Clyde The Dog

    Can I ask why you’re on an ankle monitor,chickon? Kinda noticed some comments and now I need to know. I won’t tell anyone, promise. ;)

  • Clyde The Dog

    I know what it’s like to be an idiot, but no one ever made me wear a sign to warn other people about the dangers of my idiocy. And usually my idiot type shit was shaving smile faces into my chest hair or wearing an adult diaper for the hell of it. Not once have I ever put children at risk. So I resent her being classified by the court as an idiot. Can we say low level idiot? It will make my parents feel better

  • http://www.facebook.com/robyn.bales Robyn Elizabeth Lund Bales

    I give it a couple months

  • chikonanklemonitor

    That depends. Do you want the FBI version or the truth?

  • Clyde The Dog

    Hit me the truth, I can take it. The FBI version will surely disappoint.

  • chikonanklemonitor

    The truth is way too much to broadcast. I was a “baller’s girl” is the short version. They tried to give me conspiracy and intent to distribute but they settled on money laundering in the end. The problem with the FEDS is that they have a 99.9% conviction rate so if you try to fight them you will get your back tore off. I said uncle and took my lashes in the end so I could get home. Theres no bail with the FEDS so I was in jail for 8 months before I even got sentenced. Sometimes the devil wins even if he does dress funny.

  • Clyde The Dog

    Well Alrighty then. Thanks for even answering, I thought you’d tell me to stick it up my ass and mind my own business :)
    Cool story, for real, and In all, you got yourself a nice new device to make sure you never get lost, and it gave you a nifty internet handle. Oh and some take home life lessons.

  • chikonanklemonitor

    Im not ashamed of my life lessons and Im losing my jewelry december 17th……the only way out is through it – frost

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    There are always two sides to a story. I’m curious as to what the Feeb’s & US Attorneys Office take on the situation is. You can tell me to take a flying leap, but, it’s the only way I can make an informed decision.

  • chikonanklemonitor

    An informed decision on what? I’m guessing it’s because you are from mars that you are not familiar with the terrorists – I mean FEDS? You’d have to ask them what their take on it is. …. We are not exactly communicating these days so I can’t ask them for you. Thanks for your inquiry but that’s the best way I can explain it to the masses…..

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    Maybe the daycare should install speed spikes on that portion of the sidewalk. Let’s see her save time when her tires are popped.

  • GGMon

    Ugh, I can’t believe this twatwaffle and her sense of entitlement

    OH NO, you have found out my secret Identity! Lol, thanks I guess

    I was still laughing about your comment when I saw this. Don’t worry, the secret is safe with me.

    He’s some kind of turrets genius I tell you.

  • JGo555

    It must be awesome to live in your head.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Next offense: jail.

  • Abroad

    They are burglars, and the police have them on ankle monitors so they can pick them up immediately (without waiting for forensics), if GPS shows them to have been in the vicinity of a newly reported burglary.
    Rather than being embarrassed by the ankle monitors, they spent all summer showing them off and making it very obvious to their neighbours that they didn’t care at all.
    That was my point.

  • midniteshadows

    I like how you think!!

  • midniteshadows

    “Twatwaffle” I am so stealing this word! LOL

  • midniteshadows

    Ankle monitors – isn’t that an oxymoron? We had a level 3 sex offender here in town with one. Decided he didn’t want to wear it anymore because it was hindering his lifestyle so he cut it off. The county sheriff’s depart. notified our p.d. immediately. It took our p.d. 3 days to notify the public and the schools. 3 days. They notified us AFTER he turned himself in. 1 down, 2 more to go.

    It varies daily between “awesome” and “wow, I’m glad nobody can read my mind”.

    I got the sarcasm….I’m not an idiot. I just don’t agree with you.

  • Dzan

    Just for everyone’s info, she won’t do it again. She’s dead as fuck. Google it and you’ll see. No big waste.
