Woman jailed for smoking near children

Smokers Under Attack From the Courts - Loss of Freedoms?

One can have mixed emotions on this story.

I am very anti Cigarette, but Cigarettes are legal, right?

Whats next.. Jail for taking your kids into an area that has pollution from say 'Jet Planes' taking off or landing at an airport?

Jail for your kid standing at a bus stop when the bus takes off and blows black smoke into your kids face as it drives away filling up his or her lungs with carbon monoxide?

Here is Part of the Story...

BOWLING GREEN, Va., Feb. 23 (UPI) -- A 44-year-old Virginia woman has been jailed for violating a court order that she not smoke when she is near her children.

Tamara Silvius was found to have violated the smoking ban twice, which led to the imposing of a 10-day jail sentence by Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Judge John Thomas. Silvius, who has appealed the overall ban, could appeal the jail sentence, too, the Fredericksburg (Va.) Free Lance-Star reported Wednesday.

I think she should of not smoked if she was told before but go to jail is senseless
It would be cheaper to buy her a patch or help her stop smoking
What a waste of tax payers money
Remember soon you will be able to flush only once or go to JAIL ,,

This is RIDICULOUS! What happens when your kids are exposed to other kids who have head colds......is it criminal behavior to pass a cold from from one child to another now??????
....and never mind everyday air pollution......it's ten times worse than second hand smoke. This one's off the charts
