Take responsibility for your children and make sure they go to school.

This lady has been racking up fines since 1999 at some point in time you have to realize the fines aren't going to be paid and its time to exact punishment in another way.

Except now she's dead and possibly the kids will enter into either state custody and/or the welfare system causing a much bigger problem than a debt for petty infractions. But hey, they showed her.

so now you are saying her incarceration is the proximate cause of her death?  You need to work on your causes and effects better.

If she had dropped dead during a bank robbery they would charge the robbers with murder.  They should charge the DA with murder, the judge, the prosecutor and the truancy officer should be charged with accessory.  Max them all out because they were in positions of authority.

Holy jesus, talk about not knowing cause and effect.

Explain the difference.  Is being thrown in a maximum security facility somehow less stressful than hearing "put the money in the bag"?

county jail isn't maximum security.  hundreds of millions of people go to county jails throughout the country each year and manage to stave off death brought about by stress.

Just because someone dies in jail doesn't mean the jail had anything to do with the death.


All county jails are maximum security, they have to be because they handle inmates that are of that caliber before they go to trial.  Ever hear of a county jail visit that allows personal contact?

Did the bank robber cause the death of the security guard that dropped dead of a heart attack?  When someone dies in your custody you can expect repercussions, unless you are part of the "justice system" evidently.

Jail time for Truancy.  Our march to the Right is not yet complete.  There's more severe to come.

When did the Jews (that survived) know when to leave Germany?

When is enough, enough?

What kind of people have we allowed to run this place, animals?

that District Judge Dean R. Patton, who sent her to prison reluctantly, blamed a judicial system that imprisons poor people who can't pay fines for minor offensives such as truancy fines. He said:


That's farking disgusting. So they're bringing back debtor's prisons now, huh?
