A Montana prosecutor is putting word out that anyone pregnant caught doing drugs are drinking alcohol is to be punished severely. The prosecutor is even asking for people to report people to the Sheriff’s office. Again the prison industrial complex is more interested in hiding social problems behind bars than addressing and fixing these issues. How many black and brown people are going to be caught up in police violence because of this?
Wouldn’t it be better to help by providing food, shelter and a social safety net so expecting people might not feel the need to take drugs or alcohol? Thom discusses this.
