    A 55-year-old Pennsylvania mother of seven, sentenced to serve two days in jail because her children were absent too much from school and she couldn’t pay some $2,000 in truancy fines, was found dead in her cell.

    The Associated Press reported 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:

    “This lady didn’t need to be there. We don’t do debtors prisons anymore. That went out 100 years ago.”

    It hasn’t gone out in Pennsylvania.

    The dead woman was identified as Eileen DiNino, of Reading, who went to jail to wipe clean some $2,000 in fines and court costs imposed on her since 1999 because a number of her children were absent too much from school in Reading and Muhlenberg townships.

    The AP reported that more than 1,600 people have been jailed in Berks County over school truancy fines since 2000.

    Was she killed?

    America is criminalizing poverty

    *already criminalized

    Do you know the guilt those kids are gonna carry now into their respective adoptive families and group homes? We’ve criminalized the poor and they’re paying with their lives while murderers and rapists who are heirs to vast family inheritances and influence don’t have to go to jail b/c they “wouldn’t fare well there” I can see now why God called money the root of all evil

    It doesn’t say how she died though. She could’ve died of natural causes for all we know. I understand that jail for truancy is the bigger issue but whoever wrote this article is leaving out a major part of the story.

    Wat

    Lmao

    peak whiteness has been achieved.

    HA HA HA HA

    The “new” word. New to you .

    you people are literally the worst

    PS according to my German speaking hedgeknight who lived in Germany the first 15 years of his life:

    Kunstwerk = piece of art

    Kunst = art

    Werk = creation, work

    And according to him, abbreviating it to “twerk” would just never happen at all in German.

    So clearly what the fuck is going on. 

    lmao

    I’m normally not on the “white people must be stopped” bandwagon but this is pretty ridiculous. 

    when i showed this to my friends and co-workers (here in Germany) they were like “wait, these people think an African dance originated in Germany????”

    IS THIS REAL.

    White people LITERALLY WANT EVERYTHING!
