1. What does her being pregnant with her sixteenth child have to do with cops tasing her?

They tazed her during a confrontation while wanting to talk to her son. Is it important to know anything else?

2. I know ...

and how did I know there would be a picture accompanying the story ... Just in case the "welfare queen" narrative wasn't firmly enough planted.

4. This will be sure to reveal prejudices.

The only fact that those policemen should have considered, was that she was eight months pregnant.

11. And just to ruin their narrative, the children in the small photos below the article are all clean

and well cared for. That'll ruin it for them.

43. They weren't a while back, there's a little bit of a backstory

And if you had watched the video at the link you would know this..

You would also know that while one cop was restrainer her son who punched him in the face her and her daughter were attacking them. (according to the police)


I guess the truth will come out in court---

152. I feel bad for her kids, but I have a difficult time scraping up any sympathy for her.

I've seen the video clips of her. She seems like an extremely immature and irresponsible person, and that's being kind.

I think there is resentment for the fact that she keeps having so many kids. I don't feel particularly sympathetic toward someone who has 16 children without any thought toward how she is going to raise all of them.

180. So if you're immature and have lots of kids, fair game to taze you? I'll keep that in mind.

190. No. I guess it's hard to keep track of what each DUer writes.

In every other post on this topic, I said that it was unnecessary to tase a visibly pregnant woman.

5. Several things wrong with this story...

As pointed out above--- the writer in his first written line sets the narrative that the woman is crazy.

Second---it looks for the quote of the supervisor that the officer entered the house without a warrant.

3rd of course is the tasering of a pregnant woman.

9. Someone is in full court press?

Trying to spin this in favor of the police because they know of the backlash that's coming?

10. They can enter, any way they feel like, all they have to claim is, someone is in danger.

 

Had four cops bash my door and blow up bell, at midnite. Four guns in my face. They claimed I was throwing a woman into walls. One cop said he heard her cry for fifteen minutes.

Only problem was, I am a heart patient, living alone, and had nodded off at 8. They claimed that they KNEW I was guilty, cuz I said I didnt want them in my home. Were I black, as well as then poor, I too would have been tazed or worse. They likely grabbed hold of the son, prompting mothers protection. Then, mom was getting hurt, so daughter jumped in.

18. In this case they were talking to the kid about a crime he was believed to have committed

 

he ran away and hid in the house.

That's a bit different than picking this house at random and making up a story to justify kicking in the door.

22. First, it was not witnessed by cops, and a misdemeanor at worst.

 

Next, the kid said he didnt do it. So, unless they have proof, it is the right of the mother, no matter how ill conceived, to ignore the cops.

They never pick a house at random, even in my case. They were retaliating for my busting a corruption racket, including cops and judges. Dont you think they remember her? They keep notes on persons. Pretty sure the neighbors hate her and her kids. Want her gone. She is in a house that is far too large for most welfare mothers, so is in an INNAPROPRIATE area.

I also had a neighbor that hated me, and likely called with the bogus accusations. My next door neighbor told me that a neighbor talked to her about setting me up for eviction or worse, as I have heart failure, and coughed more than he liked. So too could her neighbors call with the setup for her being bounced. In fact, throwing rocks, could get her bounced from gov help. Possible? Sure.

25. Are you willing to admit that while in your situation the "cops were out to get you"

 

that is not the case in every situation?
