White County gets hit with eugenics lawsuit
Officials charged with playing God
Sheriff Oddie J. Shoupe
Nexus Caridades Attorneys Inc. announced comprehensive civil action against White County, White County Judge, Sam Benningfield, White County Sheriff Oddie Shoupe, and White County personnel involved in the resurgence of eugenics in our country. The lawsuit states, “Simply put, in 2017, our country has come too far with respect to promoting the inherent worth and dignity of people (incarcerated or otherwise), to go this far backwards.” The lawsuit further points out “White County Jail inmates, including Ms. Ward, had Nexplanon injected into their arms in exchange for a promised 30-day jail time reduction prior to Judge Benningfield’s order,” therefore, “In his capacity as Sheriff, Shoupe, was the final policy maker for White County with respect to all health programs in which White County Jail inmates participated.”
