Why are women more often imprisoned for minor and first offences than men?

It doesn’t make sense, does it? Women commit less crime than men and less serious crimes, so why should they be imprisoned more often than men for minor and first offences?

Many of these women are also mothers, so the disruption to their families, especially if they are the only provider is great.

It makes no sense at all looking at it from a common sense perspective or even that of simple justice in treating women equally to men.

However, there is a perspective where imprisoning women, especially mothers, for minor crimes, makes perfect sense.

Targets of gang stalking say they think one of the objectives is to bring about their imprisonment. They are offered opportunities to commit crime, they are subjected to extreme harassment tailored to their particular triggers which might incite them to commit crime, and failing that they may simply be framed. Add to that that the majority of gang stalking targets are women and a picture is emerging.

What are the likely consequences of a low-income mother being sent to prison? Men who have been in prison may get employment afterwards. There is greater tolerance of males commiting crimes than women. Men are more likely to be forgiven or given another chance. This tolerance is rarely extended to women. Most women who have been in prison even for a first offence or minor crime become unemployable afterwards – so how can they support their children?

Lies gangstalkers spread about their targets include that the woman is a prostitute. This guarantees that all the sex perverts in the area will take an interest in her. Gang stalking targets have also claimed that they have been set up for rape, and some have been raped.

If gang stalking is designed to push a woman into prostitution, imprisoning low-income mothers for minor offences makes perfect sense. Women resorting to prostitution to feed their children is one of the major things that propel women into prostitution of their own accord.

It would be interesting if there was a follow-up study of how low-income mothers manage after imprisonment – if a significant number take to prostitution to support their families.

As corrupt police have figured among the actors of gang stalking, unfair sentencing against women also suggests complicity within the legal establishment, as there is no rational, even plausible reason for the disparity in sentencing.
