Seven Years For Shoving A Hall Monitor

"A 14-year-old black girl from the small Texas town of Paris, was sent to a youth prison for up to 7 years for shoving a hall monitor at her high school. A 14-year-old white girl, convicted of arson for burning down her family's house, was sentenced by the same Paris judge to probation."
