Aww, yes. My poor taste and insensitive joke was pointed towards the institutions in the story and not at all directed towards the woman. I was using the twisted logic that a politician might use to dignify these actions. My heart goes out to the widows and orphans, always.
I don't like putting women in to jail anymore than I like putting them into battle, call me a chauvinist. I especially think it is repulsive to put a mother into jail who 1) is actively taking care of a child and 2) is trying to better her child's education. Never mind it makes zero sense, if she is homeless, which district that she doesn't pay real estate tax in is she supposed to send her child? Is it the district she has her cardboard box in?
