RIGHT ON RED4
Where The Left Takes A Turn For The Worse








Put in handcuffs! In VIRGINIA!!!! Because she smoked around her kids.

What kind of country are we becoming? This woman could walk into any abortion mill in the country and have her child's brains sucked out with a vacuum, but she gets thrown in jail for smoking a cigarettes in the vicinity of her own children. This came about because her ex-husband, who has joint custody - so a father can do NOTHING to stop his own child from being aborted, but he can have the mother of his children jailed for smoking around the non-aborted child. Where is the ACLU on this one? Where are the Patriot Act handwringers? Disgusting. Read the whole story at Say Anything.

UPDATE

Preston over at Six Meat Buffet has a good point on this story: not smoking around the kids was part of the custody agreement, which she apparently broke. While I still say the punishment was excessive (and possibly designed to make a larger political point), I do concede that the situation is a little more complex to me than when I wrote this post originally.
