Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.
Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.

Not that this isn’t a good cause, but you’re wasting your time signing this petition.
"First, they weren’t signatures; they were just a list of names," [Maricopa County Attorney Bill] Montgomery said, referring to a printout from the website. "So I don’t know whether any of the individuals in their pajamas who logged on to the site and put their name on there really had a clue of all the circumstances involved in this particular case.
"The ‘quote-unquote’ letter addressed to me didn’t mention any of the circumstances that presented those children with jeopardy."
The person you’re petitioning just doesn’t give a damn about internet petitions. Right or wrong of him, it doesn’t matter, an internet petition isn’t going to do squat. Don’t don’t just sign it and sit back and bask in your own self-satisfaction. Write to his office personally,or give him a call. It won’t take that much longer, I promise.
