Rights A ReLook at our Criminal Justice System

ashley5.jpg

We need to seriously take a look at our Justice System and how it operates. Social Justice Reform should be on an Agenda with Policy Makers yet it will not be because the system has too much to loose.

With only the Power of Media there may be hope that Shame should come upon Those in Power who do not make Wise Decisions and also Abuse the System

What can you do to help?

HERE IS THE STORY

A CANCER patient in desperate need of surgery could die behind bars after being sentenced to prison for shoplifting groceries.

Ashley Menser will spend at least 10 months in prison after she was caught stealing $109 worth of groceries from a Weis Markets grocery store, a sentence that many are slamming as overly harsh.

Ashley Menser, who has advanced ovarian cancer, will spend 10 months in prison for shoplifting groceries.

The 36-year-old also has cervical cancer and her parents say without treatment she'll die within a month

The 36-year-old appeared in court on January 22 hoping that Judge Samuel A. Klein would delay her sentencing since she's being treated for both ovarian and cervical cancer.

Instead, he handed Menser a prison sentence of up to seven years for the 2018 theft, creating a life or death scenario for the sick shoplifter.

She now sits in her cell unable to get treatment with just one month left to live, according to her family, who's pleading with the court to.

"I sat there and sat there and was like, 'No, this can't happen'," Steve Via, Menser's father, told the PA Post. "She must have this operation or she's going to die."

Stephanie Bashore, Menser's mother, said a doctor told her that without treatment, her daughter would most likely die within a month.

Judge Samuel A. Klein based his decision on her criminal history, not her illness, her lawyer says

"She has no choice, it's life or death. The doctors sat there and told us this," said Bashore.

Menser's sentencing has sparked outrage in the community in Pennsylvania - now, state Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman is calling for her release and has offered to foot the $109.63 bill for the stolen goods.

"If the underlying details of this are accurate, this cannot be allowed to continue. I'll personally pay the $109 back," he tweeted Friday, followed by another tweet with a photo of a check he wrote to Weis Markets.

"Calling on Judge Kline to err on the side of mercy."
