Love After Lockup‘s Lacey juggled two criminals (John Slater and Shane Whitlow) in the recent season of the WE tv show. The draw of Love After Lockup is seeing whether or not the former convicts can reform their lives. Or, will they go back to their old habits once they’re on the outside and wind up back in jail. Meanwhile, Lacey appears to be the one engaging in criminal behavior. She was filmed throughout the season physically assaulting both Shane Whitlow and John Slater. Why does Lacey get a pass?
Love After Lockup : Lacey Abuses Shane Whitlow
All eyes were on John and felon Shane Whitlow on the latest installment of Love After Lockup. They both got out of prison. And, whether or not they’d be able to stay out of prison was a big question mark. Most criminals need to change their social circles and make other changes in their lives if they want to avoid going back in the clink. But, it turns out Lacey was the one assaulting her men.
Lacey assaulted Shane Whitlow in Love After Lockup the night he asked her to marry him. Things took a turn when she accepted and then refused Shane’s offer. And when things got out of hand, Lacey reacted by physically assaulting her. Shane Whitlow took the blows and left. Any retaliation on his part would put him back behind bars. Meanwhile, WE tv cameras filmed the incident.
Love After Lockup: Lacey Physically Attacked John Slater
Love After Lockup cameras captured Lacey going after John too. When the face-to-face meeting that was teased all season happened, Lacey hit John Slater in the face, took his phone, and threatened to call his probation officer. Meanwhile, John could do nothing without risking going back to prison. But, Lacey dared him the entire time to make a move. And, she slapped John in the face again following verbal jabs between John and her dad. That time, too, she dared him to do something about it.
All of this went down on camera. It seems Lacey was able to assault Shane and John without so much as a slap on the wrist on Love After Lockup. There’s also the fact that if John Slater or Shane Whitlow did to her what she did to them, they’d be behind bars – especially with cameras there to capture the incidents.
According to NCADV statistics in the United States, one in four men is physically abused by an intimate partner. It can be pushing, slapping or pushing. In many cases, incidents are not reported because of the shame associated with them. Meanwhile, what happened between Lacey and her detained lovers is exactly what was shown in Love After Lockup. We don’t know what happened behind closed doors.
Life After Lockup: Is There a Bias?
This isn’t the first time something like this happened on Love After Lockup. There was a similar incident with Lizzie Kommes and Scott Davey when she went to see him on Life After Lockup. She slapped him in the face in front of the cameras. And, in her case, she was the former felon in this scenario.
Meanwhile, on this season of Love After Lockup, Lacey has assaulted the men in her life more than once. In addition, WE tv brought her back for the next Life After Lockup season. Does the show reward bad behaviour as long as it increases audience and attracts viewers? The Life After Lockup teasers show John Slater and Shane Whitlow getting started for the upcoming season. And it will be interesting to see if Lacey will jump with impunity on this lap.
