Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.
Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.
So okay I know there’s a lot of the whole black and white bullshit honestly what makes you any better by putting white people down. For one this shouldn’t be any issue about color. Because once we put that aside this whole racist thing is not going to end. It is illegal to leave your kids in the car. And it is soo illegal to leave your baby on the roof. These are two different cases. Do not compare these two women because black&white. Get over yourself. You’re not making yourself or anyone else look better.
Did you really not get it…? One of the major points of this post is to simply point out the racial disparity when it comes to sentencing of offenders. And If you honestly think race does not play into the length and severity of sentences given to people who commit crime, then you are really ignorant.
