Paris Is Burnt

shaquanda.jpg

This blog is meant for fun and games but some of y’all got hearts too. I came across this story on Okayplayer of a 14 year-old girl in Paris, TX who is now suicidal because she is serving a seven year prison sentence for shoving – let’s read that again – shoving a teacher.

Paris has an ugly history and reading this really made me tear up. I was already vulnerable enough at 14 and I couldn’t  imagine being the victim of a clearly biased and flawed “due process” system under those circumstances.

Read her story on her site www.freeshaquandacotton.blogspot.com or this Chicago Tribune article 

Whether or not we decide to act we can at least think.
