Homeless mother who sent six-year-old son to better school in the wrong town jailed for five years
A mother who pleaded guilty to fraudulently enrolling her six-year-old son in the wrong school district has been sentenced to five years in prison.
Tonya McDowell sent her son to an elementary school in Norwalk, Connecticut, instead of her home city of Bridgeport.
The 34-year-old, who was homeless when she was charged with felony larceny last year, said she wanted the best education possible for the boy.

Where are all the people talking about justice is blind? Cause I fail to see how this warrants five fucking years in prison. There are violent crimes people have committed and gotten a lesser sentence. But let’s remember Tonya McDowell is a poor WoC, so she’s gonna get shit on either way.
I didn’t even know this was illegal…
why I think America is going to shit.
why I want to be a lawyer.
why I want to help those in need (I’m in a position to do so).
why I am becoming increasingly anti-capitalist.
why I hate greed.
The average employee has to work a month to earn what the top CEO earns in an hour.
SO much rage.
This is why I’ve *been* a socialist.
This is why I hate my life.
This is why I hate living here.
The winds definitely packed a punch on Monday [Feb 25, 2013]. Debris and damage could be seen everywhere. That’s not unusual, but in Midland, [Texas], something happened that had drivers slamming on the breaks and stopping to take pictures.
Wicked winds caused chaos throughout the Basin. …But the most fascinating event that spread like wildfire was a picture of tumbleweeds piling up on a Midland home.
“My wife sends me a text message with the picture of the entire left side of our house here and it’s just completely covered with tumbleweeds, most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen,” homeowner, Josh Pitman, said.
The winds blew all the tumble weeds, some even on the roof and wrapped around Pitman’s house.
“I didn’t even know this many tumbleweeds existed,” Pitman said.
Reblogging because *MY* station was the only one that got this story and I know the reporter who wrote this. AND it went national. #proud

So I accidentally bitched out the station’s new general manager over the phone, unbeknownstly. Way to go, Tatiana. Way to go…
