Mom Forced to Give Birth to Baby On Jail Cell Floor Over an Unpaid Traffic Ticket

Macomb County, MI — In Police State USA, a minor traffic violation can land you in a dangerous and, as in the case of Sandra Bland, deadly position. A Detroit mother just learned the hard way how far the police state will go to punish and extract revenue from its citizens — as she was forced to give birth to her baby on the disgusting floor of a Macomb County Jail cell.

Jessica Preston was not wanted for murder, or for human trafficking, or for any act in which there was an actual victim, when she was kidnapped by police while 8-months pregnant and thrown in a cage.

What did Preston do to be kidnapped by armed agents of the state and be locked away, you ask? She was unable to afford the fines levied against her by the state for driving infractions, so her license was suspended. When she was ‘caught’ driving with a suspended license — her first offense — Preston was locked in a cage.

Unable to pay her ridiculously high bail of $10,000, Preston, who was beginning to go into labor, was forced to rot in a cage for 5 days before she’d get a court date. However, she wouldn’t make it to day five.

While in a cell for being financially unable to pay the state for her privilege to drive, Preston went into labor — a month early.

Once Preston realized she was going into labor, she begged officers for help. Every time she cried for help, however, those calls would fall on deaf ears.

“They didn’t believe her,” Linda Preston, Jessica’s mother said. “They just left her (to) lay there. They didn’t care. They just kept saying she wasn’t having the baby, and I don’t know how anybody could say when she was bleeding, ‘You’re not having a baby,’ and that they didn’t send her to the hospital. Who makes that call?

“Everybody just looked at her like she was a piece of dirt.”

Eventually, Preston could no longer prevent her labor and began birthing her baby boy, Elijha, on a mat that laid on the floor of the dirty cell. This disgusting mistreatment of Jessica Preston was captured on the jail’s surveillance video.

 

Elijha’s father, Thomas Chastain, says he is upset that he missed the birth of his son.

“I didn’t get to cut the cord,” Chastain said. “(I) didn’t get to hold him.”

Not only did Chastain not get to see the birth of his son, but officers and jail staff put both Preston and Elijha’s lives at risk by failing to take any medical precautions — even after the baby was born. Preston’s first baby was born via an emergency cesarean section. For Preston’s safety, her son Elijha was going to be born via a cesarean section, too. But since the birth happened behind bars, that didn’t happen, and he was born prematurely.

“You can’t do that to a human being,” Tina Chastain, Thomas’ mother said. “You can’t. It’s not right. It’s inhumane. How’s it going to affect them to grow up to be an adult, knowing that (he) was born on the floor of a jail cell and wrapped up in a dirty sheet?”

Well, the answer to that question is easy — especially when we consider the history of this jail.

As the Free Thought Project reported last November, this jail has an ominous track record. When she was thrown in jail, just like Preston, 37-year-old Jennifer Meyers hadn’t physically hurt anyone. Meyers had fallen behind on her child support payments and instead of allowing this mother to keep working to actually help her children, a judge threw her in a cage for 30 days. She would only last 12 of those days.

The investigation into the death of Meyers has uncovered disturbing details and exposes, at best, criminal negligence, and, at worst, deliberate torture.

But Meyers and Preston aren’t the only recent victims of officers in the Macomb County Jail. When David Stojcevski, 32, was given a ticket for careless driving in 2014, he never expected it to be a death sentence. However, thanks to modern-day debtor’s prisons in police state USA, a traffic ticket did, in fact, lead to the death of this man.

After the state disapproved of Stojcevski’s driving, they subsequently levied a $772.00 fine against him. Unable to meet the extortion demands of the Macomb County Police, Stojcevski was kidnapped and locked in a cage for failure to pay his debt to the state.

He was sentenced to 30 days. He would only last 17.

During those 17 days, Stojcevski would dwindle away. Under the grim neon lights of a prison cell, Stojcevski would lose a quarter of his body weight as he broke down due to unchecked benzodiazepine withdrawal. Guards watched on surveillance video as Stojcevski died a slow and agonizing death — offering him no help at all.

When asked about the two recent deaths and a mother forced to give birth to her son on the floor of a jail cell, Sheriff Tony Wickersham, who is in charge of the Macomb County Jail, had these encouraging words.

“We have not identified any prosecutable violations of federal criminal law, therefore our investigation is closed,” Wickersham said.

    What the actual FUCK? I’ve been pulled over twice (in Texas) for driving with a license that was actually SUSPENDED rather than allowed to expire. Both times, I was written a ticket that cost about $400 to settle, but NEVER was I arrested, much less on a bond as viciously excessive as TEN THOUSAND dollars! That means paying a bondsman 1000-1500 in NON-REFUNDABLE money.

    Also, most jurisdictions have sense enough not to arrest pregnant women unless they absolutely can’t justify letting her walk. THIS EXACT SCENARIO is why!

    • Paul Klinger

      Are you white?

      • The Cat’s Vagina

        For all intents and purposes, but so is this woman.

        Are you fucking serious! WTF does that have to do with anything? Stupid fucker!

        • tenbroeckneighbor

          Have you ever heard of driving while black? It has happened to friends of mine here in New York. THAT’S what it has to do with it. What a jerk

  • Matthew Smith

    Just another day in the good ole U.S. of A. We have our problems in Canada no doubt, but your country’s “justice” system is BEYOND fucked up!

    • Kathleen

      Ain’t it the truth…

  • permalink

    What’s missing in the article is her prior driving record.

    • The Cat’s Vagina

      Does the phrase first offense have too many syllables for you to understand? Besides, what the fuck does her “prior driving record” have to do with forcing her to give birth on a cell floor? FUCK YOU for your foul insinuation that she deserved to be treated like that!

      • permalink

        “She was unable to afford the fines levied against her by the state for driving infractions, so her license was suspended.”

        Do you know what her **prior fines** were, or are you just trying to “stir the pot”?

        The use of profanity really enhances your position…

        • The Cat’s Vagina

          There’s only one reason why that would matter to you – go ahead and say it, if you’ve got the guts!

          • permalink

            So is the story that she got arrested for failing to pay her fines?

            Or is the story she had a baby in jail?

            I conclude that had she paid her fines she would not have ended up in jail. I know, maybe it’s just me, I want to see people obey the law.

          • The Cat’s Vagina

            I think the heart of the story here is her being forced to give birth in a jail cell. Without that detail, this would hardly be any kind of news story. Before I pick up this chair I’m sitting on and throw it at your head, do you think she deserved to be ignored and forced to give birth on the floor of a jail cell? If so, you’re a cunt. If not, you really have nothing interesting to say.

          • permalink

            Well HAD she paid the fines she would not have ended up in jail…

            But it seems you are for the law-breakers in society.

          • The Cat’s Vagina

            Yes, you inhuman jackass – I am STRONGLY in favor of “law-breakers” being treated with basic human decency while they’re locked in jail. Being locked away from society is the punishment – no one is entitled to add torture and/or neglect simply because they’re too mean and lazy to do their fucking jobs!

            And boo fucking hoo about the cussing. If you don’t like it, you don’t have to keep replying to my posts. Now, kindly fuck off and step on the nearest Lego.

          • permalink

            I am just trying my best to civilize you, so you can meet and function w/ others in society.

          • The Cat’s Vagina

            Thanks anyway, but I’m already surrounded by people who think I’m amazing just the way I am!

          • Andropov

            I’d say the person who doesn’t give a shit about someone being forced to give birth in conditions dangerous for both mother and child shouldn’t be offering to “civilize” anyone.

          • permalink

            And I would say someone who didn’t pay their traffic fines is jailed. All of this was under Jessica Preston’s control.

          • Andropov

            I’m now convinced you have no understanding of childbirth.

          • Michael Ray Overby

            What if she didn’t have the money?

          • permalink

            Not my problem, I did not impregnate her.

            And I don’t intend to support her.

            I would think by now all you social justice warriors and do-gooders would have realized that by my prior comments.

          • permalink

            So now you blame me for this woman’s failure to pay her driving/ traffic fines?

            Had she paid her tickets like the rest of us do… she would NOT have been in jail.

            But you, the ultimate **social justice warrior** are now mad at me…

          • Gordon Klock

            “Social justice”_WHAT???
            You do seem like someone who could care less whether someone is truly guilty or innocent, as long as they are punished for whatever they are accused of…
            (never trusted that stupid term, & I’m not really as “mad” as you probably think- more like disgusted/amused)…

          • permalink

            “someone who could care less”

            You are correct. I do not feel the least bit sorry for people who end up in jail.

            And I have been to jail, a couple of times, and it was thru my action, and I accept responsibility for it.

            HER birthing on the jail floor was a consequence of HER failure to pay for HER traffic fines.

          • Gordon Klock

            Sounds like you think that falsely accused people get what they deserve, (I’m not referring to this case, just your overall tone, & I have also been to jail, & can own up to my stupid mistakes, I don’t think personal responsibility is the issue here, just heartless arrogance….(as far as this case goes, just because she failed to pay her fines, & got arrested for it, doesn’t mean she deserved such unnecessary cruelty)…

          • Guy

            Please no chair throwing ! I wonder if she was given the opportunity to pay as you go and chose to ignore that if so ? The story dose seem a little off in that respect and no mention of it made,if a fact !

            As to the rest, there is no justification or excuse that can be made that would allow this woman to be treated that way, under any circumstances in or out of a jail period! This is 2017 America that this is happening in, not 7th Century Irac !

          • Andropov

            The problem is people like you who think that any punishment, no matter how severe, is justified so long as someone broke a law, any law. You’ve gone past an eye for an eye and now don’t care if they take the whole head.

            NOT BEING ABLE TO AFFORD the insanely inflated ‘fines.’ Aka ‘Unlucky driver’s tax,’ since pretty much ALL drivers speed or ‘break the law’ (unjust laws that nobody but the State agree to, anyway) at some point on the road.

          • Phil Freeman

            She consented to the terms of having a driver’s license. She failed in her obligation to the agreement she applied for and paid for and received. One cannot agree to be regulated and then bitch about the regulations imposed.

          • SD888

            Shut up, you little boot licking bitch ass punk. This was a WHITE woman who had NO previous arrests. She and her son could have died while she was giving birth unattended after a c-section, which is relatively dangerous, so much so that many OB/GYNS flat out REFUSE to let a woman who has had a C-section do a VBAC (Vagina Birth After Cesarian).

          • Michael Ray Overby

            Hi Phil.

        • David Daisy May Boldock

          People that use profanities it is proved are more intelligent, so i am with her when i say fuck you you dolt.

        • Phil Freeman

          She applied for and paid for the driver license and it is presumed in law that if you’re age of majority and sign an agreement, you understand and consent to the terms and conditions of said agreement. No one forced her to give birth. That is a result of copulating. She knew the risks of driving suspended but did so anyway. Glad the state provided her a safe place to give birth. I mean, if she can’t afford to pay for a ticket, she may not be able to afford a place to give birth. At least Michigan did that for her, and you paid for it. Patting my back now, my philanthropic good deed for results. Positive results no less.

          • SD888

            Oh, shut the fudge up. You are just here for attention and being pedantic, prim, and priggish. ‘No one forced her to give birth.’ The lazy, cruel, abusive, and inattentive guards FORCED HER TO GIVE BIRTH ON HER OWN without assistance after a C-section, which puts both mother AND child at risk of death! Go fuck yourself. I hope you piss off some pig cop for making a right on red and end up beaten and locked in a cell somewhere, begging and calling for help, to fall on deaf ears. Karma is a BITCH.

          • Phil Freeman

            That’s telling me! How shall I fuck off? If she’d have honoured her agreement with the state and the court she’d have been able to give birth wherever she wanted, but she failed in her obligation. It’s very simple really, don’t ask to be regulated and complain about the regulations afterwards. She’s fortunate to have been provided a place to give birth in light of her insolence toward the court and the state. It’s clear she has complete disdain for the Michigan transportation laws therein. She should have honoured her agreements.

          • Guy

            Logical true, but also true is. Your Not Being Very Nice Phil !

          • Phil Freeman

            It’s merely an experiment. I’m not pro- state. On the contrary. I posted the home addresses of these abusers and get attacked for doing so, I then side with the abusers and get attacked for doing so. You fuckers want it both ways, hypocritical cunts. I personally don’t care where she has her baby. I’m confident that she knew that DWLS would land her in jail, jail isn’t a good place to be, especially when pregnant. It’s a fool who relies on the mercy of the state in such a vulnerable position as she was. Yes the state owes a duty of basic care, the state failed. Should that come as a surprise? The state is a business, in business there’s no room for compassion, morality or tenderness. Profit is what matters, nothing else. That is the nature of the state. What then is the lesson?

          • Guy

            You’re right about wanting it both ways ! I am a white bread, blue eyed, blond haired, American, that loves Mom & Apple Pie, and I deserve the best that America Has To Offer. The rest of you don’t ! Now “F” Off !

    • Phil Freeman

      The guards didn’t make her pregnant, police have no duty to protect anyone. It’s not a medical emergency, women have birthed babies for a long time.

      • Ina Pickle

        That is where you are mistaken. Vaginal births after a cesarean are dangerous. The stress on the weakened uterus can cause a rupture and death. But even if that weren’t an issue, there’s all sorts of dangers that could lead to the death of the mother and baby. There’s a reason the death rate was so incredibly high before women started giving birth in hospitals. They are lucky this baby wasn’t breech and didn’t have his cord wrapped around his neck.

        • Phil Freeman

          She had a previous birth by cesarean section and should have known the risks of natural birth in a jail cell. Mother failed herself and her children. The state met it’s obligation.

          • That is so myopic that it borders on psychopathic, at the least narcissistic. The last place she “should have known the risks” is in a jail cell.

        What a fucking idiot. After a woman has a c-section, it’s QUITE dangerous for her to give birth naturally–as Ina says, it can cause the uterus to rupture and both mother and baby to die. You don’t know nothing bout birthing no babies, Miss Scarlett.

        • Phil Freeman

          If it’s so dangerous, why would she elect to become pregnant in the first place? Seems to me that she risked her own life and that of the unborn child. She had one child, so it’s reasonable to deduct that she was aware of the risks associated with pregnancy. The fact is, she placed herself in that position.

        • Phil Freeman

          It’s a mission statement, like any corporation has, “Determined to keep your trust; working to keep you safe.” like, ” To protect and serve.” It’s a logo, like “good to the last drop.” It has no force, or effect at law. It’s a marketing tool, a gimmick, nothing more.

            And I’ll gladly take another one if it means speaking out against those who spout off reasons to justify this type of cruelty. What possible good did it do anyone to force a woman to birth her baby on the floor of a jail cell? To whose benefit?

            I’m by no means fooled by the Mission statement either or believe that all LEOs are there to protect me. If anything, it just proves they are a bunch of hypocrites and liars. Serving their own self-interests, while pandering to their corporate owners.

        She had the baby a month early because of complications. Yes women have birthed babies for a long time without medical assistance, and many women died because of childbirth. This woman will sue and she will win, and we the taxpayers shall pay, and all the negligent employees will keep their jobs. It does not take a genius to realize that she needed medical attention, but you are a man, so you have no idea what childbirth is like, nor do I, but I do know that I would never want to.

        • Phil Freeman

          She should have considered the potential for complications, she had previous experience with complications in her prior pregnancy. My guess is that her physician would not wanted her to drive anyway, do it’s likely that she ignored his/her orders and the court’s.

            The jail and state are liable, as they took possession of her and her unborn baby, knowing that she was pregnant, then they ignored the pleas of an obviously pregnant women, which make them even more liable, as there were plenty of witnesses. I hope and pray that every female guard and every male guards wife in that jail that was there when this happened, has their babies die due to negligence or because nobody would help them, as they deserve to feel the same pain!!!

          • I was in OBGYN for 40 years, you are clueless and I am guessing a psychopath, at the least a narcissist. No med. professional would obstruct her driving IF she had no problems during this pregnancy. Just the stress of incarceration can cause premature labor. No one knows if the uterus will rupture until labor itself. She, her husband and two children will get a nice house out of this, and they deserve it.

          • Phil Freeman

            Did she know her license was suspended? The story suggests she did. Did she know she could be jailed for driving suspended? I’m certain the thought crossed her mind. Did she risk being jailed while pregnant? Yes, yes she did. She then relied on an uncaring state to offer mercy and compassion for her condition, a foolish error on her part, but one in which she was willing to accept. Willing to become pregnant, willing to risk her freedom, willing to risk her unborn child and willing to rely on an unmerciful state to do the right thing. Who’s really at fault here? I’m a realist. The world is unmerciful, cold, violent and malevolent in large part. She hoped for a benefit in the risk she took, she was disappointed with the outcome. Play stupid games win stupid prizes. I skydive, I hit the ground at fifty MPH, risk/ reward/consequences. I carry four pounds of titanium in me now. I won a stupid prize. She did too.

          • Titanium to birth on a jail floor. That is called Transference. You had all the pieces of info when you sky dive. She did not. Few know that jailers are that risky with peoples lives.
            True psychopaths are beyond help (castration helps some), but since you like experiments, consider joining an animal rescue group, and you will find that the world which is “unmerciful, cold, violent and malevolent” is not true as people have mercy to rectify it. That is, if you are a contrarian. But if you know you are the sick person you present in the comments and have no mercy in you, then stay away from innocent abused animals – and other humans for that matter.

          • Phil Freeman

            Birth in a floor to animal abuse, that’s called transference. Did you miss a dose?

          • Ah ha! You admit you know about doses. Knew you needed it.

          • Mother Earth

            You are a uncalculated and cold person and hope that their aren’t too many people on the earth like you

          • Phil Freeman

            I’m taking a contrary position to guage the response from this emotionally, psychologically challenged community. Seems you folks want it both ways. Very illogical and certainly unrealistic expectations. My comments have been a part of a social experiment. I learned a great deal. Thanks for participating.

          • Con men always hide behind what seems to be reason, it’s part of their psychopathy.

      • Once in custody, yes the police has a duty to protect, there is even protective isolation for it.

        She should have been transferred to a hospital once her labor started, she even showed them she was bleeding. She had no clue if her uterus would rupture and she would die – the hemorrhaging is so fast in those cases there would have been no saving her.
        Any birth is considered a medical emergency, just because the amount of bleeding will always be unknown – for women who “have birthed babies for a long time.” or not.

        However, from your posts, it seems you are OK that this could have easily been a death sentence for her.

        Isn’t there a concentration camp you can work at – ie go enlist with ISIS?

        • Phil Freeman

          I find it laughable when I side with the state, I’m attacked, but when I post the home addresses of these abusive fucks, I’m attacked. You people are a bunch h of fucking hypocritical cunts.

          Funny you say that, my mother died in child birth having me, it still isn’t my fault. People are born and die by the thousands every day. You think you’ll change that?

        Fuck You Dick. Complications have killed women & babies in childbirth for a long time. What if it was your wife & kid?

    • charleslennon

      Attemped murder. They are all trained to recognize the signs and symptoms of delivery, in case they need to assist and/or deliver a child themselves.

      • charleslennon

        In fact, if the child has or develops any medical issues because of the delivery they could be liable criminally/civil in the future.

    • Andrew Wilson

      You’re dealing with a situation where most guards are wannabe cops. And there is a reason they aren’t cops, they are so worthless, even the police dept won’t have them. That is not a recipe for a good outcome.

      I would like to point out another issue, a judge gave a $10,000 bail on a suspended license to a very pregnant woman, that is insane.

      Several comments on here allude to if the person was black, cops would have shot them etc. While I do not disagree, I would also like to point out that there is a prejudice against poor people in general. I expected her to be black before I saw the video, just because the jail showed such disdain for her health. The reality in this case? She is poor, and cops like to prey on poor people. As do the courts. Poor people are less likely to file complaints, easier to threaten, often times poorly educated, and certainly don’t have the means to bring lawyers down on them. Unless there is a big lawsuit possible.

  • Eric Smith

    This is sad, no nurses no doctors nothing. I really hope she sues the shit out of that place and forces its doors closed.. To much “I don’t give a shit, Its not my job BS”. Where are the adults there? Shame that place to hell that even the devil would be embarrassed, and not touch it with a 10ft flaming pole. /carryon..

  • Rogue cops cost us money

    Sue the shit out of the medical care provider.

    • The Cat’s Vagina

      …out of EVERYBODY involved in this bullshit.

    • SD888

      Sue the jail guards/sheriffs and the head sheriff, as I believe he is the one who is responsible for making sure his sheriffs do not mistreat prisoners (which they so often do). Sue the city and sue the state. Sad that the TAXPAYERS will be forced to pay out again. There is NO oversight over cops these days. They rape, murder, plant evidence, beat and mistreat ‘suspects’ with absolute IMPUNITY. There needs to be a Civilian Review Board in every city to examine reported cases of police brutality, etc.
      We need to Police the Police.

  • Nishi

    This is uncivilized and immoral. Maybe she should have told them she had some dope up her vagina so they’d do an exam.

    • SD888

      If she had done so, they would have roughly jammed their fingers into her vagina and some idiots wear long, sharp fingernails. Thin latex gloves don’t protect from harm. They might have caused an infection that would have led to the death of mother and baby.

      • Nishi

  • Mother Earth

    I hear of inhumane incidents like this happen and I see that their is no duty of care whatsoever and it leaves me disheartened by these heartless animals, yes animals, even most animals wouldn’t do what these trained chimpanzee’s have done, you say oh my God but don’t go blaming any God because many people have the Devil in them and are destined for evil.

  • Guy

    Hey !!!! Sheriff Tony Wickersham ! How about crimes against humanity and moral turpitude ! You Big Dumb Hillbilly !

      Isn’t this outside of Detroit? I don’t think being a ‘hill billy’ has anything to do with it. It has to do with being a PIG.

  • Phil Freeman

    Now now, let’s not get in an uproar. She agreed to those terms and conditions when she applied for, and paid for a Michigan driver’s license. Breach of the commercial transportation codes come with consequences. In this case it’s not the state’s fault she was Prego. Women have been giving birth for a long time and much like going to the toilet, it’s a natural act. She knew she was pregnant, knew her license was invalid and yet failed in her obligation to remedy the potential for being arrested and jailed as a condition of breaching the aforementioned agreement with state of Michigan. She could have negotiated a payment plan that was amicable, but didn’t. You’d think that a mother, who’s about to have another baby would have a cause for concern for the welfare of her unborn child and not risk the potential consequences of breaching her consentual agreement. Play stupid games win stupid prizes mom.

    • IceTrey

      Being refused proper medical treatment while in jail is a condition of having a drivers license?

      • SD888

        Ooh, BURN!

      • Phil Freeman

        There are no limits to the level of enforcement of a commercial agreement with the state. Refuse to sign a citation and you’re going to jail. Flee from the officer issuing the citation and you can be killed, so yes it is a condition of licensure.

        • IceTrey

          That’s not what I asked. I want to know if you think a pregnant women should not receive proper medical care because she has a drivers license.

          • Phil Freeman

            Yes she should receive proper medical care and would have had access to it had she not violated the law. The state is obligated to minimum standards of care, just like the obligation to the students in public school.

          • IceTrey

            So the minimum amount of care for you is a dirty concrete floor to give birth on?

          • Phil Freeman

            She should have cleaned the floor first. See how women do it in Afghanistan, no doctor, no nurse, right on the straw Mat bed. I lived in a sand bag bunker and shit in a half fifty five gallon drum for two years. All while being shot at. Don’t tell me about hardship. Don’t break the law and you can have the freedom to give birth wherever you want. Don’t like it? Change the law, or don’t enter commercial agreement with the state.

          • IceTrey

            So a mop and bucket is your definition of minimum medical care.

          • Phil Freeman

            It’s a start.

  • Phil Freeman

    Great, now the taxpayer gets to not only pay for three hots and a cot, but neonatal care for a baby she can’t afford, since she can’t afford to pay for the traffic ticket. Have some more kids you can’t afford you dumb bitch. We’ll pay for it. I hope she sits her ass right in jail.

    • SD888

      You’re really a pig. Your logical FAIL proves nothing. The traffic ‘fine,’ which is nothing more than literal highway robbery, is a large amount forced to be paid out at once. People who are smart and resourceful can ‘afford’ a child by breastfeeding instead of formula feeding (saves over $5,000 in the first years of a child’s life), buy inexpensive or even used cloth diapers (also saves thousands over disposable diapers and better for the environment as well), making home made baby food (easy and cheap, steam organic veggies in a metal steamer pot then use food processor to mash, put in ice cube trays and freeze, then defrost a few cubes a day for meals to supplement breast feeding), buying used clothes from yard sales (entire year worth of baby clothes can be purchased for about $100 max, since most items are about $1 at a yard sale or rummage sale), buying used shoes for kids or cheap ones as kids outgrow them so quickly, etc. Used toys from the thrift store or yard sale instead of new overpriced plastic junk. Taking them to the park instead of Chuck E. Cheese, which is overstimulating, anyway.

      • Phil Freeman

        You’ve made my point rather succinctly. She should have teamed up with you to apply these crafty, thrifty, methods, she may have been able to pay her fines.

  • Gordon Klock

    Wasn’t there a time, when jails took better care of medically compromised individuals ? I seem to remember that they at least, acted like they actually cared, & valued a person’s life, despite their currently being “scofflaws” of the state, ( or am I thinking of another country ?)…
    Ever since the nineties, when they actually made having lower than average intelligence, to be a requirement to be a cop, things seem to keep getting generally uglier….

  • martymarsh

    That is the corrupt justice system for you, they have to many overpaid revenue agents they have to feed.

  • carnold03

    Cold as this is to say, but the slut should’ve just paid the traffic ticket, rather than let it lapse. She never would’ve had her license suspended or suffered the indignity of birthing her bastard on the sheet covered floor of a jail cell. Then again, it’s a bit much to expect a woman who’s having children out of wedlock with a tattooed man who sounds like such a stellar product of the American education system to assert a little personal responsibility. I’ve long since concluded that women are a poor investment, but hopefully this woman gets his stuff together and asserts more responsibility in her life.

    • IceTrey

      Don’t the police have a responsibility to provide proper medical care when in their custody?

      • carnold03

        Imagine they did, but it seems everyone in this story was divorced from their responsibilities here.

    No criminal violation has been found? is that a fuckin joke or they just trying to get it over without penalty? The last person who suffered to death and having a seizure all the time, and no one has ever call an embulance for him? He died in jail just because of some stupid driving tickets? You got be kidding me…

  • Jeremiah Washington

    What kind of medical would say, don’t send a women to a hospital to have a baby? I would look at sueing those doctors also, this is crazy.

  • Eva Marie Moore

    Well I don’t like that she had to deliver in a jail cell. But please explain why you were breaking the law and driving on a suspended license? It’s the law no matter what. It is a discipline we all have to go through no matter what. No matter who. The law is the law. Don’t get yourself into these situations and that would not happen. When they take your privilege away then respect the law and don’t drive until you get them back.

    • IceTrey

      That’s irrelevent as to whether the police have a fiduciary responsibility to provide proper medical care when in their custody.
