Boggles my mind...completely.
This is a tragic story, where one is indicted, and the other is not. It's illogical.
I certainly don't have an answer to any part of this story, but I do feel that both women are scarred, mentally and physically from this incident/experience, and also....the grieved loss of a child. (imho).

Gawd, this is horrible. Working, and then working some more to pay your bills, and not getting paid enough to pay those bills. It's a never ending merry-go-round for these women (and men), trying to survive and trying to support their families. This is beyond cruel, while the administrators bask in their wealth. Sickening at it's worst !!!
Yeah, Furies ... bring back justice and empathy for these folks.

Thanks, Joanne for post.

That Alabama case IS insane. On every level one can think of. I have a friend there, she and her husband are both attorneys, and she was incensed over the abortion bill (she has 8 children), she said all she hoped for was that Alabama could stay out of the national headlines until some sense took over. Said she might run for their Senate herself, which I encourage because, that state, along with many of its neighbors is misogynistic, and racist, beyond belief. Someone, I think Rachel Maddow, pointed out that of the 13 states that have not ratified the ERA virtually all of them are right there in that cesspool bordering and including Alabama. It takes your breath away how horrific this charge is. And this, plus many other reasons, is why I'm a card carrying ACLU member for life.

The hospital story doesn't surprise me either, only the part about owning their own collection company. That kind of company is a piranha, they go straight to court, get judgments and then garnish wages. Most of them buy bad debt for pennies on the dollar then proceed to make the lives of the poor even more hellish than they already are. This entire nation needs a rebirth.

I started watch the Amazon series, Omens, last night. I know the evangelical community tried to stop it but they're so stupid they went after Netflix. Still, one thing stood in the third episode which sort of goes over the history of the one demon and angel who have been sort of canceling each other out for 8000 years (God's voice is narrated by Frances McDormand, very good choice) are watching the crucifixion of Christ, the angel says to the demon, have you met him? Demon says, yes, seemed like a nice young man, then, what did he do? The reply, he said be kind to each other. Response, oh, yes, that would do it. Which is what the world feels like to me these days. That's not a good thing. But I haven't the foggiest how to fix it given the way people are right now. I'd lay that all on Trump but it started long before he became a thing. Sadly.

It's insane what is happening to these women.
Makes no sense what so ever how they could end up arresting Jones. It's confusing me.
It's like our court systems are doing everything opposite of how they should be.  Are they becoming that dumb or what??
I signed the petitions that Mitchell and Freya posted. 
Thanks Joanne
