Free Shaquanda Cotton

Shaquanda Cotton, a 14-year-old African American student, was “convicted” and sent to a youth prison for up to 7 years for shoving a hall monitor at her high school in Paris, Texas. The same judge, Chuck Superville, then convicted a 14-year-old white girl of arson for burning down her family’s house. Her sentence? Probation.

See Howard Witt’s piece here.

A blog has been set up on Shaquanda’s behalf: Shaquanda’s Blog.
