This Is Justice

H/T to Jenn of the Jungle.

A man in Michigan is sentenced to scrubbing veterans' monuments with a toothbrush and wearing a shirt that read: "I Stole From Veterans" as punishment for a scam involving solicitation of donations for a monument to Iraq war vets.

A judge ordered Philip Kolinski, 73, of Carrollton Township, Mich., to wash the veterans monument outside the Saginaw County Governmental Center after he was found guilty of soliciting metal donations for a sculpture dedicated to Iraq War veterans that was never built, the Saginaw News said.

Instead of using the metal for a monument, he sold it and kept the money, the paper reports.
