Case by case.  This woman would go to the top of the case list to be encouraged not to procreate.  Again, by her own choice but no argument from me at all.  If we looked at each case though it might be a little concerning how often she is the exception and not the rule.

I read a case where a woman had been arrested three times. During two of the three arrests she had her toddler daughter with her. During her third arrest the child was said to have been with family. The woman was pregnant again. 

The woman was arrested along with two other women on drug and prostitution charges and one of the women who had violated her own probation decided to offer info on the other woman's child.
She said the child had been sold. 

The mother said her child was with family, then said her child was with a friend. Neither story checked out.
This was two years ago and the child is still missing. 

One missing child and endangering another by drug abuse and prostitution. 
For the safety of the potentual children this woman might birth because now she has found a new $$ source in child trafficking, she should be sterilized by any means possible.

I'm sure the woman in question is still in jail as she should be. 
She's a YT meth addict.

Well looky here... ain't that a bish

When it comes to the discussion of the prison industrial complex in the Black community, most of the focus is on the high numbers Black men behind bars. While the statistics are alarming (as of 2001, one in six Black men had spent some time in prison and jails), women are now being incarcerated at twice the rate as men.

Between 1980 and 2010, the number of women sentenced to prison rose by over 600-percent, and there are now over 200,000 women behind bars. The reason? Drugs.

The War on Drugs has condemned countless women to prison for either aiding their boyfriends’ drug operations—both knowingly and unknowingly—or being addicted to controlled substances.

According to the NAACP, although African Americans represent just 12-percent of drug users, they account for 38-percent of those arrested for drug offenses, and 59-percent of those in state prison for a drug offense. Moreover, the Sentencing Project reports that African Americans “serve virtually as much time in prison for a drug offense (58.7 months) as whites do for a violent offense (61.7 months).”

Though many states are moving to decimalize the use of banned substances like marijuana, the drug war has taken a serious toll on women and families. Many women are sentenced to prison while they are pregnant, and most female inmates have children at home.

The effects? Children are thrown into the foster care system, which puts them at risk for following in their mother’s footsteps and ending up in the jail system.

Today, Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the Obama Administration is rolling out a “new and improved approach will make the criteria for clemency recommendation more expansive” and may clear the way for thousands of non-violent drug offenders to get out of prison earlier than their harsh sentences allowed.

Holder explained the reason for the change:

“The White House has indicated it wants to consider additional clemency applications, to restore a degree of justice, fairness, and proportionality for deserving individuals who do not pose a threat to public safety,” he said in a videotaped statement. “The Justice Department is committed to recommending as many qualified applicants as possible for reduced sentences.”

“There are still too many people in federal prison who were sentenced under the old regime — and who, as a result, will have to spend far more time in prison than they would if sentenced today for exactly the same crime.”

Recently, Brave New Films looked into the growing numbers of women in prison and what America can do, in addition to expanding clemency options, to change things.

Take a look:

It's not the sterilization itself that's the problem.  It's not following state guidelines when performing the procedures.  That's throwing up red flags for me.  If they follow all the right steps and someone is advocating for these women and respecting their wishes, then everything is all gravy.

I have to agree. It must have been late last year that our local npr station did a whole show on this policy. And while nothing is perfect, it seems to be one of the few programs that is successful while causing the least amount of harm.

I think it's wise for us as a community to be skeptical but we can't let paranoia get in the way of common sense. If they can continue to maintain the women's bodily autonomy while also preventing more kids from being subjected to the emotional and physical torture of having an incarcerated parent then that's the side we should be on as a community.

I don't have access to articles on psychinfo and ebscohost

but if any of you do search crime in poor white neighborhoods

I posted what I could find from my google search

black and latino crimes rates are all over google but it's hard to find articles that focus on crime rates in poor white communities....I wonder why

For both racial groups,
increases in poverty were related to increases in violent crime. As in the cross-sectional
results, the magnitude of the effect of poverty appeared larger for black neighborhoods
than white neighborhoods, but the standard test for coefficient differences suggested that
this discrepancy was not statistically significant (p=.27).3 Unlike the cross-sectional
results, increases in the percent white were significantly associated with increases in the
violent crime rate in predominately black areas. This effect was significantly different
from the coefficient for predominately white areas (p<.05 for the difference). Although
somewhat unexpected, this finding could reflect the strains created by residential
displacement and the general social disruption associated with gentrification (Taylor and
Covington, 1988).

POVERTY, NOT RACE, TIED TO HIGH CRIME RATES IN URBAN COMMUNITIESCOLUMBUS, Ohio -- Violent crime rates have more to do with poverty levels in a neighborhood than with the race of local residents, new research has found.

A study of Columbus neighborhoods found that violent crime rates in extremely disadvantaged white neighborhoods were very similar to rates in comparable Black neighborhoods.

The violent crime rate in highly disadvantaged Black areas was 22 per 1,000 residents, not much different from the 20 per 1,000 rate in similar white communities.

There are still many people who mistakenly believe there is something about Black neighborhoods that make them more violent and prone to crime, said Lauren Krivo, co-author of the study and associate professor of sociology at Ohio State University.

Our research shows that neighborhoods with the most crime tend to be those with the highest rates of poverty and other types of disadvantage -- regardless of whether they are predominantly Black or white.

In this study, overall rates of violence were nearly three times as high in Black neighborhoods as in white neighborhoods. But thats because Black neighborhoods are much more likely than white ones to be highly disadvantaged, she said. 

Krivo conducted the study with Ruth Peterson, a professor of sociology at Ohio State. Their study was published in the current issue of the journal Social Forces. 

The researchers examined crime rates for 1989 to 1991 in 177 census tracts in Columbus. They separated the census tracts -- which are the units researchers use to approximate neighborhoods -- into those with low poverty rates (less than 20 percent), high rates (20 to 40 percent) and extreme rates (more than 40 percent). They also separated the census tracts into those that were predominantly white or Black (at least 70 percent of one race). 

Along with poverty rates, the researchers also compared neighborhoods on other measures of disadvantage: levels of male joblessness, female-headed families, and professionals living in the community. They then calculated a disadvantage index that combined all of these measures. 

Violent crime rates were lowest in those neighborhoods with low disadvantage, regardless of whether they were predominantly Black or white. Extremely disadvantaged neighborhoods had violent crime rates that were 16.3 per 1000 higher than rates in low disadvantage neighborhoods. 

The results showed that extremely disadvantaged Black neighborhoods still had slightly higher violent crime rates than did similar white neighborhoods. One possible reason may be that the Black neighborhoods in this study are still more disadvantaged than the comparable white neighborhoods, Krivo said. 

In addition, the highly disadvantaged Black neighborhoods were more likely than the white neighborhoods to be grouped together, which may intensify the negative effects. 

The researchers also looked at property crimes in the study. The results were similar in that extremely disadvantaged neighborhoods -- both white and Black -- had comparable rates of crime. However, in the case of property crimes, white neighborhoods had slightly higher rates than did Black communities. 

This may be because residents in the Black neighborhoods are more impoverished, and there is less to steal, Krivo said. 

Krivo said this study was conducted in Columbus because it has relatively large numbers of both white and Black high-poverty neighborhoods, which made comparisons possible. Many large cities have very few impoverished white neighborhoods, she said. The results show a clear connection between poverty and crime, according to Krivo. 

Disadvantage has the same patterns of effects on crime in white and Black neighborhoods. Black urban neighborhoods tend to have higher crime rates than the typical white city neighborhood, but this is largely because there are more Black communities that are highly disadvantaged.
