That's crazy! What is the back story? Why are they harassing her and locked her up?
What in sam hill???!
So apparently, she was trying to get a day care voucher so she can get to work as a maid. The workers called the police because she was sitting on the floor. She has a warrant in NJ for credit card fraud. They are also charging her with child endangerment. I got all of this from the Twitter feed. They didn’t have to treat her like this at all. Regardless of her warrant they used excessive force and yanked a baby out of her arms like she stole him or was abusing him. I can’t!
They called the cops on her because she was “blocking hallway” by sitting on the floor. I’m presuming the knee nothing of her warrants as it relates to how they acted.
The whole thing is disgraceful. That poor baby could have been serious injured. These law enforcement officers are out of control!
Further, the City needs to get its act together. Why are people with young babies waiting for hours to get service?
This shows how racist our society is and how much hate there is. She was not human to them, but poor and black. The cops were wrong--social services even worse.
So, no one said to themselves, “Maybe I could give my chair to this woman with the baby so she doesn’t have to sit on the floor.”?
I saw that on Sunday and it kept popping my my mind yesterday. Just disturbing. Hope the baby wasn't injured.
Also, its extreme for the workers to call the cops because the lady was sitting on the floor. As far as I'm concerned thats a waste of police time. The cops should be out dealing with real crime and the workers should use common sense.
DISGUSTING...every one of those officers should be fired. This woman's civil rights were violated. I hope a strong lawyer like Ben can offer her their services to sue NYPD and social services... I don't care what her other circumstances are.
Nope. Folks are "all for self" and it would kill them to do something to help someone else.
I hate people sometimes.
I live in NYC good luck with that one. Do you know how many times i have been on the bus or train out here and given up my seat while other people just ignored the person( cane, elderly, mother with child or pregnant women). What grates my nerves is the young men sitting sprawled out on the train won't even offer. I guess having manners is not being taught nowadays.
I saw the video, no matter what she did or what warrant she had for arrest, cops had no right to do that to her.
Because they are poor and for the most part, minorities. No one cares about poor minority women with young children (they should have never have gotten pregnant if they can't support the kids/I don't want my tax dollars supporting these kinds of people). Some people even questioned why the people in the office had cell phones with cameras.
Other people may have been selfish or there with their own children. There also may have been to few chairs to begin with- God forbid that poor people have a nice looking , comfortable area to wait in while getting services.
Question. Regardless of the why they are arresting her....if someone is being arrested and are on the floor while holding a child for dear life that they refuse to let go, what is the proper way to arrest this person and take the child away? I'm legit wondering what procedure is here.
All charges against her dropped.....hope an attorney can help her out, suing the hell out of NYPD....
Good!! She is still being held for the warrant tho. Here’s a go fund me page started for her.
^^ Thanks! didn't realize they've already got a GoFundMe.. wait... the page was started by the public defender? talk about CYA!....
They did this to her.. not because she killed somebody.. but because she was sitting on the doggone floor?? Did the cops take down the parkland shooter like that? The fool that shot those folks in Kentucky?
Why do you say that?!
Girl this is NYC. You can be in the throes of Labour and folks will walk by you and not blink!
The Black woman cop was doing the most. I hope she is severely disciplined. How you gon threaten EVERYBODY with your taser? She was daring anybody to try and help that girl!
It be your own people.
Yes, I would like to know the answer to this.
Also, this reminds me of the Emily Weinman situation in Wildwood, NJ earlier this year. It didn't end so well for her.

If it wasn't it would be racist.
No, because she didn't follow orders. She could have been in the right but come on, by now we should know that the best way to save your life is by complying. Especially when you have a child present. Once out of the situation you can take legal action.
Yes she bothered me most... almost as if she had a personal vendetta. Black women don't look out for each other at all; I usually get treated most poorly by other black women even if I go out my way to acknowledge them and be nice (cashiers, etc.) It's a shame... we are a broken people.
Are you yelling? ...
Huh?! there were no caps...
I dont think anyone knows that answer but will say they were way too rough and shouldn't have done it. Not defending the actions just curious in a "what's the proper way then" and what is suggested in this situation?
So really, this is a reflection of societal breakdown. I feel like everyone present failed this woman. An exaggeration yes, however, if people had treated her with the respect due to a woman waiting with a small child, she wouldn’t have been on the floor. Staff should have offered her a chair since no other clients were willing to and this would not have happened.
But since no one understands that we still live in a society, this foolishness occurs.
