FT Police Officer Arrests Mom and Teen For Reporting Crime

22 Dec

Where I grew up, any adult in the neighborhood, if they saw a kid doing something that might pose physical danger to themselves or others, transgress the law, or cause a problem disturbing the peace of the neighborhood, had the right to walk out to tell you to stop doing whatever it was. Usually a short mea culpa by the kid involved was where it ended.  If you talked back, then the neighbor would almost always say something to your parents. at which point you were officially “in trouble”. Depending on what you did, that trouble might end up in a stern talking to or a but whipping. Talking back to a neighbor almost always assured it was the second consequence.

No neighbor would ever raise a hand to physically punish someone else’s kid.

The dumb ass cop in this case must have grown up with animals.

Officer on restricted duty after Texas woman’s controversial arrest seen on video

A white Texas police officer has been put on restricted duty after a video of him wrestling a black woman to the ground before arresting her and her two teenage daughters was posted on Facebook.

The incident began in a Fort Worth neighborhood Wednesday afternoon when an officer was called by Jacqueline Craig who had been arguing with a man who she said physically confronted her 7-year-old son for littering.

In the video, posted live on Facebook Wednesday, Craig can be seen telling a Fort Worth police officer that a neighbor choked her son after the neighbor said the child littered in his yard.  The officer is heard asking her, “Why didn’t you teach your son not to litter?”

The woman says the neighbor can’t prove to her the boy littered, but said “it doesn’t matter if he did or didn’t, it doesn’t give him the right to put his hands on him.”

The officer replies, “Why not?”

The conversation escalates and the officer can be seen taking Craig to the ground, handcuffing her and pointing what appears to be a Taser at a teen girl, later identified as Craig’s daughter. A family attorney said Thursday the Taser was not deployed.

The officer is also seen taking the teen to the ground and handcuffing her. The woman filming identifies herself as Craig’s daughter and is heard yelling at the officer, telling him she’s filming and he’s “on live.”

The woman filming was also later detained, reports CBS DFW.

The video has sparked several calls for civil rights protests in downtown Fort Worth, the station reports.

In a statement, Fort Worth police say they became aware of the Facebook video around 10 p.m. Wednesday and their internal affairs unit immediately began investigating. Two of the three arrestees were interviewed at the Fort Worth jail and officials also interviewed witnesses and reviewed the Facebook video.

In a press conference, family attorney Lee Merritt said the officer was the one to “brutally escalate” the situation and called for him to be immediately terminated and charged. Merritt also called for charges to be dropped against his clients and for the man accused of choking the boy to be arrested.

“The man should have been placed under arrest; instead, the mother was questioned,” he said.

    Fat, nasty IQ-75 dindu – with a nasty unhomeschooled little whelp – violating every conceivable premise of civility and the commons – gets checked by a neighbor fed up with the inconsiderate filthiness and profligacy.

    Neighbor should have whooped the bejeezus out of nasty’s spawn and that been the end of it.

    Lesson learned by spawn, maternal gratitude for the limit-setting, end of discussion.

    Problem is, these SNAP-grubbing, utterly unproductive oxygen-thieving dindus suffer delusions of unearned and undeserved status that are only disrupted by collaterally homicidal gunshots or a run-in with the popo.

    She should have been grateful to the neighbor, respectful of the popo, and realistic about her utterly dependent and parasitic engagement with the commons and public largesse. Failing that, cold cuffs, hot lead, or a crackling taser seem like livestock management baselines to me.

    Your tolerance for uselessness may vary…..,

      Not sure how they do things out there in the hinterlands…

      But in my neighborhood choking a 7 year old that ain’t yours…

      Is a real good what to get your ass shot.

        I’m quite certain I believe the 7 year old’s account. Look, he violated the neighbor’s space in ways that proper home learning could have easily prevented. He got his little monkey tail snatched. This isn’t rocket science or a mystery to one of your generation BTx3.

        The fact that you insist on racializing it, as if you were a fat angry white leftist lesbian assistant professor at a Unitarian forum, instead of a black man of a certain generation – is a constant and increasingly bewildering mystery to me.

        But then, you have removed yourself far enough away from the trifling travails of the ghetto mugwump, that you have no continuing familiarity with, or experience of, the constant and incessant social insults and irritations that emanate from kids who haven’t been properly raised and disciplined by two parents who model a respectful role that will serve their children well.

        It wasn’t the seven-year-old who reported the incident to the mother. The witness was another person as well as the teenage daughter.

        lol, like I said earlier, you want absolutely no part of these hoodrats anywhere near you!

        Merry Christmas – from one old black “racist” to another.

        One of these days, hopefully very soon, we’ll bring an abrupt end to the bigotry of low expectations that has made it permissible for hoodrats to FUBAR everything they contaminate.

        Want better, do better, be better – and fake it till you make it.

        Everything else is disingenuous conversation…,

        My neighborhood Trumpezoid eradication tool works just fine out to 1200 yards, providing a peaceful haven from all rats. It’s an “equal opportunity” rat suppression tool.

      rotflmbao…, the foul-mouthed child screeching at and recording the incident pretty much sums up the level of home training that has taken place within this cohort. Straight up, simple and plain, you would no sooner accept these as neighbors than if a large nest of rats set up shop next to your home.

    Thanks for blogging about this. I read about it last night on Twitter but had not found time today to follow-up. It’s good to know they have an attorney. I also read that the officer has been suspended.

    Black Lives do indeed matter. Law enforcement has a funny way to act out the Christmas spirit. NO kindness or forgiveness here.
