At what point must we acknowledge that in many sex crimes cases, women are punished differently than men?
Six months in jail, to be followed by five years probation?
If that’s not a joke, I don’t know what is.
Is such different treatment not a violation of the United States Constitution’s Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause?
See Michelle Coker Taylor’s Arrest & Booking record with the Fayette County, Alabama Sheriff’s here:

In today’s Huntsville Times, under the “Law & Order” section, subhead “The police beat,” on page A4, a brief article enumerated the names and ages of 17 women arrested “Wednesday in a citywide prostitution sting.” Police Public Information Officer Sergeant Mark Roberts shared the area of concentration and locations of the arrests. The article stated that “all the women have been booked in the Madison County Jail,” and “charged with soliciting prostitution.”
From a social perspective, I can’t help but imagine the women probably have histories of physical, sexual and drug abuse. I further conjecture – based upon historical sociological data – that they were probably seeking to support a drug habit.
What interested me, however, were their names.
The women ranged in age from 20-49, and no pictures were published, and no data concerning their ethnicity was made, though the authorities doubtless photographed and documented it.
Here, for your perusal are the names and ages of the women arrested.
Readers are encouraged to draw their own conclusions.
Mandie Darlene Anderson – 24
Dawn Pruitt Collins – 49
Tanisha Kachelle Johnson – 29
Stephanie Ineke Salters Rahim – 24
Tanisha Wrenet Page – 34
Rachel York Morehouse – 23
Amber Sue Pearson – 24
Vickie Marie Brown – 35
Crystal Renee Kemper – 33
Kymberly Ellis Clinard – 38
Teresa Gail Stevenson – 35
Mary Shanna Williams – 30
Nichole Ross Barnett – 26
Chasity Michelle Skipworth – 35
Latasha Lashun James – 33
Bethani Amber Hosch – 20
Sue Ann Kinney Branch – 45
Now that you’ve hopefully drawn your own conclusions, see if you were right!
