HAIKU OF THE DAY 11302018

Messenger: St. Louis woman did 20 days in jail for speeding; now rural Missouri judge wants her for 6 more months.


1.
Yet another case

Of mass incarceration

Targeting black folk.

2.

She was: caught speeding,

Did her time, and paid her fines.

But that’s not enough.

3.

The deal was bogus.
