Response to This Battered Woman Wants To Get Out Of Prison:
This is just perpetuating victim blaming. In no way was this woman at fault for what happened to her son. Are there cases where mothers have willingly allowed their children to be abused? Yes. But here this woman was probably not around when it happened or was scared for further harm to happen to her child or herself. Anyone who thinks its okay to put their hands on anyone, much less a child deserves a lifetime in jail. It is unbelievable the way our justice system works. Doesn’t seem that it’s working very well to me.
