"RACINE — The jail inmate who gave birth in her cell last month may have caused herself to go into premature labor with the intent to file a lawsuit against Racine County, Sheriff Bob Carlson said Tuesday.
"At a 10 a.m. press conference at the Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., Carlson released video of inmate Melissa Woten doing handstands in her cell just hours before she gave birth in her cell toilet. He also released statements from other inmates who said Woten had hit herself in the stomach and that she wanted to give birth in the jail, so she could go to the hospital."
Looks like the Journal Times' latest cause du jour may turn out like the T.J. Melendez debacle: once again they backed the supposed "victim," when it may very well be that she was the perpetrator. They've given extensive coverage to Ms. Woten and her allegations, including front page coverage of her child's funeral. Most of the online coverage has been closed to comments.
They did this with T.J. Melendez' mother, portraying her as a martyr to ganbanging when in fact she was actively promoting the lifestyle that killed her son. Of course, when I pointed that out on the Journal Times' site, I was banned.
Who are the people at the Journal Times? Do they know anything about street life in Racine, Wisconsin? How is it that the people who are supposed to be reporting the news of our community understand so little about our community?
Today, they once again moderated one of Winger's comments, not because it was profane or a personal attack, but because they disagreed with his opinion:
"Moderator's note: Let us celebrate positive accomplishments, and not make mean-spirited comments about strangers who are bettering themselves."
See, the comment section of the Journal Times is for your opinion, as long as that opinion is the same as the Journal Times' opinion.
At the Journal Times, "all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others."
Oink-oink, Journal Times, oink-oink.
