Thread Name: BS: Traveller Discrimination in the USA
Subject: RE: Traveller Discrimination in the USA
According to InOBU, Madlyne Toogood is being "prociscuted" becuase she is an "Irish Traveller."

None of the news reports I've seen or read have mentioned any ethnicity. When I saw and heard her speak on TV, I didn't hear any accent that would make me think she's anything other than American. And it shouldn't make any difference anyway.

Madlyne Toogood is being prosecuted because she violently abused her child and was caught on video tape doing it.

Madlyne Toogood's lawyer has stated that the tape didn't lie and that he expects her to change her plea to guilty.

Madlyne Toogood herself has admitted her wrongdoing.

InOBU's idiotic and irrational defence of this child beater is shameful.
