A 21 year old University of Nebraska student, in Lincoln, NE, was sentenced to 30 days in jail for having a disorderly party, reports,the Lincoln Journal Star.

The local newspaper reported,
"In a 2 Ż page sentencing order, Pokorny went through, reason by reason, "why courts need to take a harder look at this type of case and Mr. Herchenbach."

"There are a number of reasons that a court needs to take a harder look at this type of case and Mr. Herchenbach," he wrote. "Reason #1. People can die at these parties."

Pokorny said young people who come to college in Lincoln often make bad choices when presented with unlimited beer and liquor. It's not uncommon for police to find people passed out at parties with near-lethal blood alcohol levels, he said.

"Reason #2. People can die at these parties."

Pokorny illuded to Jenna Cooper, the young woman shot and killed at a party almost two years ago. Young men cruise neighborhoods looking for college parties and walk in, uninvited, helping themselves to food and drinks and anything else lying around. Asked to leave, they often get violent, he said.

Pokorny said wild parties tear at the fabric of some of Lincoln's oldest and best neighborhoods "destroying the solid, quiet sense of community that has made our city what it is."

The paper also reported that the local police chief supported thee punishment:
Police Chief Tom Casady agreed, too. In a press conference this week, he said officers get 1,600 calls a year about parties that are out of control. This weekend, they'll probably get 35 to 50, he said.

"We're seeing some real significant sentences meted out," he said, compared to what he's seen in the past. "This is the kind of outcome we need."

While in prison, the victim of Porkorny's perverted justice, Mike Herchenbach, learned that drunk drivers received seven to ten day sentences.

Just imagine. You have some friends over. You serve alcohol. The conversation gets lively. The neighbors are a**holes and you don't get along. They call the police...again. This time, you get arrested and brought before a judge. The judge cites precedent-- the a**hole in Nebraska-- and you're sentenced to three months in jail. Don't say it's ridiculous. Don't say it can't happen here. Things ARE happening here. They're happening every day. Gale Pokorny is a fascist, as well as an a**hole. He should lose his job. Just as there are judges who under-sentence, this is one who has gone too far.
