Many players, profound income disparity, in fair Ohio, where we lay our scene, an ugly grudge blossoms as a School District of Depravity, where sanctioned greed makes civil hands unclean…
A single mother of two children, Kelley Williams-Bolar, is tried for stealing educational services. She used the address of her children’s *grandfather to establish residency in the Copley-Fairlawn City Schools District. Williams-Bolar lives in an Akron project in poverty as she works to finish her University degree in teaching. She also works as a teacher’s aide.
(Testimony wraps up in Judge Cosgrove’s Court room)
Poe: We’re good stewards of our taxpayers’ dollars and it’s something that we will abide by. A grave violation of the public trust has been committed. An inferior has shown a complete lack of respect for the law. She must be exposed and punished. This woman should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law for her felony crime against money.
Walsh: And a good money stewart you are, Mr. Poe. Thank you.
(Walsh turns to jury as Poe steps down)
And so, Jurors, the decision now lies with you. Williams-Bolar felt her children were entitled to be educated outside of a rat hole. Show her what she really deserves for not knowing her place and her children’s place in the projects.
Jury exits to deliberate.
Thinking Juror: This isn’t a crime. It’s disobedience…civil disobedience, an infraction. She shouldn’t have a felony and a criminal record for this.
Civilized Juror: The judge defined Ohio law. It’s a violation.
Capitalist Jury Foreman: This is clear cut. She stole taxpayer money. She goes to jail. Period.
Hippie Juror: The grandfather paid taxes. The money isn’t an issue. You have no heart, Capitalist Jury Foreman. She wanted a better life for her kids. This will destroy her.
Capitalist Jury Foreman: Lesson learned.
Rest of the Jurors: Guilty. We have shit to do.
Thinking and Hippie Jurors: We kind of have shit to do, too. Guilty. Plus, we’ll be in trouble if we don’t go by Ohio’s law.
Jury returns to the courtroom.
Judge Cosgrove: Capitalist Jury Foreman, do you have a verdict?
Capitalist Jury Foreman: (yawns) We find Williams-Bolar guilty and sentence her to death.
Judge Cosgrove: Shut the fuck up, idiot, and sit down. (Bangs gavel.) Five years suspended sentence, 10 days in the Summit County jail (one day counted off for time served), $30,000 of money she’ll never have as a fine, and 80 hours of community service for Ms. Williams-Bolar. Plus, I’ll work with the criminal to make sure she can still become a teacher even though she’s now a convicted felon.
Kelley Williams-Bolar: (Crying.) To love another person is to see the face of God, and so you know how I love and why I did what I did for my children. But I am at the mercy of a loveless state.
