A Tale of Two Mothers In American in a “Post Racial Society”
Left: Catalina Clouser - Got high, drove for 12 miles with her 2 month old baby on the roof of her car before realizing her child was not in the vehicle. The baby fell off and was found in the middle of the highway, still in its car seat and miraculously unharmed. Catalina pled guilty to child abuse and DUI, she avoided jail time and was sentenced to probation.
Right: Shanesha Taylor - A homeless mother, left her two kids (2 years old and 6 months) in the car while she went on a job interview for 45 minutes because she had no one to watch them. Shanesha was arrested and charged with a felony and had her kids removed from her care.
Both of these women live in Arizona

Woman on the left should’ve had her child taken, woman on her right should be given them back with a huge fucking apology. At least one of the parents was trying to make something of themselves for their kids.
