Well -I be dayumm!
I know parents can be cuffed up for bein’ lazy (that’s all it is) and not sendin’ their kids to school, but jailed for sendin’ them? WTF??
A woman in Ohio was arrested for just that.
The problem was that she sent her babies to a school in a district they didn’t live in. This is the crime they say was committed. They called it “tampering with court (?) records “- one for each child. This is the crime Judge Patricia Cosgrove gave her 10 days in the hoose-gow and three years on paper (probation) for. This is the crime they say is worth $30ThouWow + “in tuition” (public schools now charge tuition? Dayumm times have changed and nobody told me!)
Kelly Williams-Bolar will begin servin’ her sentence immediately.
They went straight gangsta, and arrested her dad, Edward L. Williams, too! Po’ thang, all he did was say they lived with him, in Copley Township, the school in question’s district, instead of the projects in Akron, the one they really live in. Charged his ass with a 4th degree felony grand theft (they really on the juice!) for “defrauding the school system of educational services“ for the girls.
They make it sound like they stole some cable or somethin’. It’s not like the woman burst into the school office, guns blazin’ and took it.
All she wanted to do was give her children with a better education and a better chance at life. Better than they would have had in the projects, since we all know that school in the projects is more about gettin’ to and from , and through school alive , than gettin’ any type of education. We all know there is a huge racial division in American schools, and there are less of what is considered just enough in black schools, then there is white schools.
So why is it a crime to try to not condemn your child to a possible life of illiteracy, minimum wages, crime, drugs, prostitution, illegitimate children and abuse? This is a strugglin’ single mother, goin’ to college and workin’ as a TA, never seen the inside of the police station. All she wanted to do was give hers a better row to hoe. Now this bullshyt threatens her job and her dreams of bein’ a teacher… And her kids are goin’ back to purgatory.
If they REALLY did an investigation, they’d probably find out Miss Kelly is not the only one, some of those ‘others‘ may not really live in the district either. I f I was Miss Kelly, Id demand that they did.
Why cant a parent send their kids to what ever school they want to? With all the horrible crime in the world, this is what the cops and the courts are wastin’ our tax money on.
Only in Amerikkka.
