Judge orders Ohio man to hold sign proclaiming he's a bully

Posted April 14th, 2014 @ 5:52am by The Associated Press

SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio (AP) --An Ohio man ordered to spend five hours at a street corner with a sign declaring he's a bully says his sentence was unfair and the judge who gave it to him ruined his life.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group reports that 62-year-old Edmond Aviv for the most part ignored honking horns and people who stopped by to talk with him Sunday in South Euclid.

But he wasn't happy with the punishment, saying, "The judge destroyed me" and "This isn't fair at all."

The judge ordered the sign to say: "I AM A BULLY" after neighbors say he targeted a family with two adopted children with disabilities, calling them ethnic slurs and even smearing dog feces on the family's wheelchair ramp. 

Aviv had pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge. 

A court probation officer monitored Aviv on Sunday.
