Woman shackled during labor awarded damages from deputies.

For WHAT?????

Quote:
Villegas, 35, was unshackled shortly before delivery, and her baby boy was born without complications, but she was shackled again shortly afterward. One leg was attached to the bed when she was lying down. Her legs were shackled together when she got up to use the bathroom. And deputies refused to allow her to use a breast pump after giving birth, causing her pain and illness.

This Country has gone completely insane.

Why make this about illegals?
This happens in Lakawana county Pa to non-illegal inmates.

SHE made this about illegals as she is an illegal alien and was treated appropriately for her crime. When a health issue arose, it was dealt with accordingly.

So, because she was detained, shackled like as you would say like any other criminal, she should be awarded monies?

Thats just crazy.

And to add, she shouldn't be in OUR court systems at ALL let alone awarded anything. Her AND her baby should be booted BACK to whence she came! (Don't give me the crap about her child now being an American citizen, highly disputed as well as hopefully rectified soon)

Well her baby is a natural born citizen and that's never going to be "rectified". Ever. Sorry.

Yeah, "disputed" by people who can't understand simple concepts like "the law."

What, exactly, needs to be rectified?

Read the countless articles in "here" to enlighten yourself about the law, (constituion) not your interpretation.

To STAY ON TOPIC: It's an outrage that her case was ever heard in an American court, for the jurors not to know she was here ILLEGALLY, so I am sure they just thought it excessive for a traffic violation whereas her crime was much more than that, and to award her monies. I can bet they are kicking themselves in the butt after learning ALL the facts.

When you are detained and/or arrested by the police and deemed a flight risk, this is standard procedure so you don't make a run for it

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

What have I mis-interpreted there? What has the supreme court mis-interpreted?

I hate to break this to you but even if someone is in the country illegally they are still human beings and still have rights. I know the fact that you can't just shoot illegals on sight for entertainment just makes you FURIOUS but that's the actual law.
