Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.
Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.
White mother Catalina Clouser got high, left her baby on top of her car, took a drive and the baby fell off. She ended up getting probation. Black mother Shanesha Taylor left her two kids in her car while she went to a job interview and is being charged with child abuse. Both cases were in Arizona and we all know how wonderful Arizona is when it comes to civil rights. My (now EX) friend says that Catalina's case is irrelevant and that Shanesha's punishment fits the crime. Is he a racist?
