Brickbat: Labor Pains

|

A Boca Raton woman, who wasn't named by local media, spent hours alone in her cell at the Broward County, Florida jail, screaming in pain as she gave birth to a son. The woman, whom public defenders say suffers from "acute mental illness," had been charged with burglary. The incident happened just three months after the state legislature passed the Tammy Jackson Healthy Pregnancies for Incarcerated Women Law. Named after a woman who was forced to give birth in solitary confinement just last year in that same jail, the law mandates that inmates in labor be given immediate medical care and transported to an appropriate medical facility with no delay. The Broward County Sheriff's Office is refusing to comment on this latest incident.

  6. The incident happened just three months after the state legislature passed the Tammy Jackson Healthy Pregnancies for Incarcerated Women Law.

    Laws with consequences aren’t for government, they’re for the citizens.

  7. To be fair, they did pepper spray her.

    1. Well, she wouldn’t stop resisting. Or screaming. Where they crossed the line was in driving to her house to shoot her dog.

  8. And nothing else happened.

  9. Did she name the son Chad?

  10. It is illegal to smuggle things into jail.

  11. I don’t care.

  12. the law mandates that inmates in labor be given immediate medical care and transported to an appropriate medical facility with no delay

    Or what? Who is going to jail for breaking this particular law? Who is going to be fired or even disciplined? Does the law provide for any punishment for violating the law? Then it’s not actually a law, it’s just a suggestion.

    The Broward County Sheriff’s Office is refusing to comment on this latest incident.

    Oh, they commented all right. They said “FYTW”.

    1. Then it’s not actually a law, it’s just a suggestion.

      Fist hits it above. Even “Dear Colleagues” letters are for thee not for me.

  13. Police consider themselves above the law. They ignore any laws they feel like, even if the only people capable of breaking the specific law are police.

    So a new law was passed to require police to behave like decent people? So what? They already ignore laws against far worse things than this.

  14. “The Broward County Sheriff’s Office…”

    You don’t say.
