vegankid, on the blog Taking Place, writes about a young Black girl being sentenced to prison:

When i first read this headline at, i thought, “this has to be an exaggeration.” So I followed the link to the Chicago Tribune article and sure enough, 14-year-old freshman, Shaquanda Cotton, was sentenced to 7 years in prison for shoving a hall monitor at Paris High School.

And just three months before Shaquanda’s conviction, a White 14-year-old female was convicted by the same judge of arson for burning down her family’s house. She was sentenced to probation. The article didn’t say whether she has to write Christmas cards to her family.
