Jazmine Headley

A Brooklyn mom at the center of a "troubling" viral video was previously arrested and charged with two counts of credit card theft and one count of identity theft, according to ABC News.

Jazmine Headley, 23, was arrested on Friday when she refused to leave a Brooklyn food stamp office after waiting four hours for help.

Headley took a day off from her job as a security guard and went to the food stamp office in Brooklyn to find out why daycare vouchers for her 1-year-old son were cut off.

The food stamp office was crowded and Headley took a seat on the floor with her baby son, Damone.

Human Resources officers asked Headley to stand up because she was blocking a hallway and “disorderly conduct towards other people." When she refused to leave, staffers called police.

Cellphone video showed officers ripping Headley's baby son away from her. As usual, the video only shows a small part of what actually happened.

Headley was charged with resisting arrest, committing an act in a manner injurious to a child, criminal trespass and obstruction of governmental administration.

A judge issued a restraining order barring her from coming near her baby.

Following the uproar on social media, the trespassing charge was dropped, but Headley is being held on an outstanding warrant from an unrelated case.

According to ABC News, Headley was indicted by a grand jury in March 2017 on two felony counts of third-degree credit card theft and one count of fourth-degree identity theft. She was arrested on July 23, 2016, in New Jersey, as part of a police investigation into a counterfeit credit card theft ring.

The Brooklyn District Office said it was reaching out to New Jersey to "expedite her release." Damone was placed in the custody of Headley's mother, Jacqueline Jenkins, who witnessed the incident at the food stamp office.

"I was devastated to see something like that happen to my daughter and grandson," Jenkins, told ABC New York station WABC-TV.

A police union defended the officers' actions.

"These police officers were put in an impossible situation. They didn't create the dispute at the HRA office -- as always, they were called in to deal with the inevitable fallout when the rest of our City government fails in its task," Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association of the City of New York, said in a statement.

He said the officers were doing their duties trying to protect the mother and the child.

"The event would have unfolded much differently if those at the scene had simply complied with the officers' lawful orders," Lynch said.

He also addressed the social media's tendency to overreact to incidents such as this one without benefit of all the facts.

"The immediate rush to condemn these officers leaves their fellow cops wondering: when confronted with a similar impossible scenario, what do you want us to do? The answer cannot be 'do nothing.’"

    What does that have to do with her baby being savagely ripped out of her arms? Now she's gonna be a recovered credit card theft who has millions in the bank.

  • ShelbyMoore

    A judge issued a restraining order barring her from coming near her baby.
    ___________

    So the police could have killed the child, but she's the one not allowed around the child anymore? Mane, she better get a good lawyer.

  • hi-liter

    Ion care what she did, that was fucd up the way that black woman police officer was pulling and yanking on that dayum baby. These were mostly black officers doing this fuc shat.

  • heezy93

    why you got that lady's mugshot as your profile lmaoooo

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    That poor baby

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Aye the cops were wrong for manhandling her, the police is way too grabby for my liking, this aint right. With that being said FCK her for not letting go of that child. You know the police gives no fawk and will kill you in front of witnesses why not be peaceful during the arrest? The biggest loser here is the baby who probably got throttled hard af in this scuffle. I cannot with these violent gun ho police officers and these hoodrat babymamas. Ugh

  • CrunchyBlack1

    black people still fighting with the police?!?! after all these killings and no convictions?!?!? surely you jest? Fuhh pride, I'm following orders and THEN fighting those civil rights violations in court. Heard them checks spend better, when you're alive to cash them.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    They asked her politely over and over again. She refused....done deal. Black people need to learn how to get mad over REAL issues that MATTER. What else were the police officers supposed to do? Reason with her? Keep begging? Naaaa....get the baby...and get the broad up out of there. The baby HAD to be snatched out of her hand. Its different when a person has done nothing wrong or they are complying. She is CLEARLY in the wrong. They handled it. End of story.

  • Ni Ni

    I can't watch the vid right now, so I'll be relying on the opinions of you roses.

    Anywhoo, it sounds cruel what they did to her. Some people catch hell for taking off work from their supervisors so i can understand her frustration.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I'm glad you said it, bc if I did, it might not have translated well.. Personally, I'm not trying to get Sandra Blanded...periodt! If someone even pursed their lip to say "Po-lice" I'm out!

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    In short, a minor avoidable situation occurred that could've easily been avoided, the police were called and as usual they over reacted.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    1. I imagine the security guard that approached her had a nasty azz attitude. It's my experience that a lot of them have delusion of grandeur, ESPECIALLY if they get to carry anything other than a flashlight.

    2. Police reform is needed. Period. Even if she was being unruly, how in the hell is them yanking and pulling on that child deescalating the situation.

    3. She needs a good lawyer. Resisting arrest is a police officers go-to-charge when they can't charge you with any thing else. Nevermind the fact that in most states you are legally permitted to resist an illegal arrest.

  • free

    Was she being arrested or asked to leave? If arrested, why was she holding on to the baby? If asked to leave, why the f*ck didn’t she leave? I’m trying to understand her thought process.

  • Ni Ni

    Oh ok ?

  • jayhawkpride

    She needs to save her money. Because she has no case!!

  • J2PC

    Commonsense says that if she resists orders of police she can then expect to be grabbed, pulled, slammed, tasered, flipped or whatever it takes to make the arrest.

    The baby gate won't prevent that. It is better to cooperate, have the matter filmed & fight the charges. -instead of distracting noise in the the ear, social media & other timewasters, Black folks need to be having real conversations about how to carry, conduct themselves to be in a position to fight the charges.

  • free

    They basically told her get up out the hallway and go stand somewhere else.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    And she was released and charges were dropped

  • MJ

    Just the thought of my baby being caught up would have made me obey all orders from the beginning. I don’t understand her reasoning or what would possess her to allow her child to go through that.

  • J2PC

    She put her baby in that situation. The arrest was going down one way or another. She could have said please allow me to pass my baby to my Mother. -furthermore, she should have gotten up from blocking the floor before the police got involved.

  • Solstice

    ??????!!! Come back ?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    All of the charges were dropped. So you may want to go back to fcking your sister and gtfo my thread. Thank you, next.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    What is YOUR nationality??

  • SpillyNillie

    This situation is a hot ass mess from both sides. I just can't. She should've complied simply for the safety of her child, but yet, the officers could have handled this differently. SMDH.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Chile...

  • Ni Ni

    ????

  • Thingamajig

    Disgusting... if they would’ve just given the woman a fricken chair, it wouldn’t have escalated to that point.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    The color and style of her hair says it all. Sit in the middle of the floor with your defenseless child of a business, refuse to leave, and don't comply with the officers who control your very fate. It just seems to be the same story over and over with these tired azz hoes. Live off of the government, and keep getting pregnant by different men to increase their welfare benefits. They keep Jordans on their feet...and make sure that their weaves have color. Smh...

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    I am black and I am tired of the behavior of African Americans....they cry wolf.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    No...she put her child's in harms way. What were they supposed to do exactly? They should have been more gentle right?

  • MsAmour22

    It doesn't matter what so called "crime" she did in the past, we all make mistakes and the pigs weren't even aware that she had a "warrant" when they physically assaulted her and her baby. No mother wants to voluntarily give her baby to a stranger let alone to a stranger who is a member of the gangs of new york. This is not police brutality, this is domestic terrorism. The current United States government and other corporations on North American soil are being run by white collar criminals but are they being treated like this? Thank the Most Highs that this shit is crumbling right before our eyes, going down in flames.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    That way!!!!! Ignorance is no excuse. Why is the child even on the floor in a public facility such as a food stamp office?

  • Applebootay

    Exactly...social services offices are horrible to people but she had an outstanding arrest, plus she had her baby in her arms...TOO MURCH!!

  • CrunchyBlack1

    i'm out.... lol

  • Applebootay

    instead of distracting noise in the the ear,

    THIS

  • Applebootay

    But imma be mad at the mother too for putting her child in that situation...C'mon...let's call a spade a spade....oooo that's prolly too soon

  • Vonn

    "The immediate rush to condemn these officers leaves their fellow cops wondering: when confronted with a similar impossible scenario, what do you want us to do? The answer cannot be 'do nothing.’"

    The answer cannot be assaulting a small child either!! This moron called it an "impossible scenario." If he thinks this is an impossible scenario, he needs to quit. He's the president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association of the City of New York.

  • Scromes1212

    The police can't win in this situation smh if they do nothing it makes comes across like they are rewarding this type behavior and if they make an arrest they look like the villain

  • Applebootay

    Right! Cause at this point...the Officers have deem you the one the baby needs protection from because you disobeying orders...

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    They should have charged this broad with intentional child endangerment, child cruelty, child neglect, and child abuse for even sitting in the floor of a public facility such as the DeKalb County food stamp office......with your an innocent child. The way that she handled the situation as a mother warranted for an arrest within itself. Lock this broad up and give her some time to think about how much danger that she put her and her innocent child in.

  • MJ

    I agree that the officers went way overboard..I don’t understand how another woman (or anybody) could yank on a child like that but it’s first and foremost the child’s MOTHER who has to act in the best interest of her baby. I don’t know what an officer is going to do but I know what I’M going to do as a mother is keep my child out of harms way at all costs.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    So what should they have done when they asked her to move and she refused? I am just asking...

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    They asked her to leave...she refused to do so.

  • Applebootay

    Gurlllll...she ain't getting shat if she was resisting arrest...if you resist then YOU are putting the child's life in danger...not them...they now feel like they need to take that baby before they have to shoot you....FOR REAL....we be popping off for the wrong reasons at the wrong time...once she knew the police were on their way, she should have gotten up...WE HAVEN"T FORGOTTEN WHAT HAPPENED TO THE LAST MOTHER WHO USE HER BABY FOR DEFENSE

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    You cant understand her. She has box braids with white yarn embedded in them.......as a hairstyle.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    THANK YOU!!!! What are these people talking about? She needs a good lawyer? A lawyer to represent her for what exactly? Smh.....

  • Bashi22

    Why America so call first world ? country still treat black Americans like the dregs of society. Black America so loyal in voting for all these rights. Yet they still being treated lesser than some so call third world ? countries. I would think educated countries with free education would have certain decorum on how treat people.

  • dru and neil

    Why the f—- couldn’t she just stand up when she was asked to not block the path.

  • Kendra Foster

    Look Satan, those young girls don't know that they're sharing a man from having a child until it's too late. They've looked up to real black families beforehand from the 60's to the early 90's and thought that their age range could be like them in 2000. Not knowing the new statistics for black men as fathers in the household. So, they'll take their problems to it, not knowing subconsciously. You have to study the facts: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2015/04/20/upshot/missing-black-men.html. I don't know what the culture have to do with it. I've worked with them to help them overcome their obstacles to move forward. One out of 12 black women will get married and stay married. If you don't understand from the research; then you're part of the problem.

  • dru and neil

    Exactly.

  • Yup, I said it

    When keeping it real goes wrong. I just don't understand why people wanna cut up for some vouchers and stamps? Even the homeless people living in the woods don't go up in social services acting the fool

  • MsAmour22

    She had to take the day off of her full-time job in order to renew her child/day care vouchers that had been cut office by the social services office. This is why she had her child with her. The people that work at the social services office in New York treat people like shit, they don't dive a damn what your circumstance is. I know this because when I was a student back in the day I went there for assistance. It is truly a toxic environment. She had already been waiting for four hours. They will literally have you wait for 8 hours until your number is called, imagine waiting that long with a child and being treated like shit from the workers. Everyone their is extremely frustrated. If she would have left she would've had to take another day off of work with her child to go the next day and wait just as long as she waited the day before. Nobody has time for that bullshit let alone a mother with a baby.

  • TransMichelle

    If she was an illegal immigrant they would have treated her with kid gloves and probably put her in the front of the line. The leftist libtards would be hollering racism and say that The Donald promotes child abuse. Amazing

  • MsAmour22

    If she had jet black hair and shaved eyebrows like Marilyn Manson?....

    You dummy.

  • CaramelDrop

    Because (some) black folks like: to get all “rah-rah” for the smallest chit; everything has to be an argument or a pun; no respect for ANY authority; the intended end result of every/any issue is: “Bich gone know they got me Phuket up.” Ugggghh and it just makes me so mad that WE keep giving EVERYONE leverage over us by not having any discipline or respect.

    All of this could’ve been avoided if she just asked for a chair and/or ONE OF THOSE SORRY ASS MEN and/or able bodied childless women could’ve got their asz up.

    It’s like if you can’t have respect for the next person, respect yourself and child AT THE LEAST.

  • free

    so she thought she was gonna get an express pass like Disney world?

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    BINGO!!!!

  • Scromes1212

    Imagine how frustrating it is for a person just trying to do there job and you mad at them cause of your place in line smh most people in there had to take off work so what she mad lol

  • CaramelDrop

    Yep!

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Make it make it sense sweetheart because wtf are you even talking about? Because its the holidays...I will let that "Satan" remark slide too. May God bless you. Take care!

  • Carla

    Lol

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    There's blame on both sides. Both the cops and the mother could have handled the situation differently. I feel bad for the baby who was traumatized by all this though. That's about it.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Bish you're the dummy. Her hairstyle speaks volumes. Enough said.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Period. And throw latinos in there too, it aint publicized but they stay resisting arest swinging on cops and just acting a FOOL

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Black folks just love to go against the grain it’s very embarrassing

  • MsAmour22

    You really just asked this question bruh?

    Question dumb as hell

  • Kendra Foster

    I was speaking facts; don't worry about it.

  • DroneRivers

    Her prior arrest record doesn't have schit to do with schit! You know they feel some kinda way when they rush to assassinate your character like this. Are they going to share the arresting officers' records too? Do they have any prior excessive force complaints? Were they tested for drugs/alcohol after this incident?

    You can't tell me they feel they handled this situation in the best manner.

  • MsAmour22

    Yes, to a superficial nymph brain idiot it does.

  • hi-liter

    I see your point, and she may need to take some of the blame but instead of them being low down and dirty they should be pulling on HER limbs, not the baby.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    SAME!!!!

  • DroneRivers

    Her hairstyle is just a hairstyle. You don't dismiss and diminish someone because of how they choose to wear their hair.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Out OUT. Facts. Im not trynna get sandra blanded either. All these years and she never got justice. SMFH

  • dru and neil

    I agree, this instinct to “raise up” and cause a scene, is getting people into trouble unnecessarily, making us look unhinged and I’m tired of it too. People need to pick their battles.

  • Chicagowise

    Working in health care, I see this kind of behavior all the time. Being in a hospital can be stressful for anyone, but Medicaid patients seem particularly prone to violent outbursts and uncivilized behavior. Some say, their actions are driven by a sense of entitlement.

    While the police were a bit heavy-handed, a rational mother's first instinct is to protect her child. A reasonable woman wouldn't have gotten into a physical confrontation with police, while holding her baby.

    Sadly, as long as Jazmine is in the picture, that child's life is only going to get worse.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    ITA. Once again social media overreacts to a video that only tells part of the story. Most of the action was blocked from view. What we did see was a woman totally out of control, rolling around on the dirty linoleum, putting her child's health at risk, and refusing to comply with verbal orders.

  • Chicagowise

    Some of the young nurses and doctors who aren't used to that kind of behavior, often don't know how to react. They just stand there like a deer caught in the headlights. ?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Somebody said the baby slept through the entire ordeal. I didn't hear one peep from the baby.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    #sigh If she would've moved when she was told she was blocking the hallway all of this could've been avoided. ????? Sometimes when you do the clownery...

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    The mother shoulda have never been sitting her azz on a filthy floor with her child in a public service place as busy as that. She should have complied with the officers request. I can only imagine how defiant she was. Yes I'm blaming her for what happened. Now she bout to lose her job ESPECIALLY AFTER the revealing of her EXTRACARICULAR activities. Dumbazz!!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    EXACTLY!!!!

  • Kendra Foster

    I've worked with helping people in the ER and spoke with them. People who came to the ER are aggravated from the inconvenience that uphold their surroundings. Slowing, society has a pit on how they can maneuver pro-creation in the black community. They've had the ordeal of hiring black woman in social services to feel empowered and look down on their own. So, in blatant terms; "she/he has to wait". Then, they've shut down any possible resources from them to stay employed from daycare to transportation from the 1.5 million black men missing. If you research and find out the real truth then it will stand clear. I'm not supporting the uncouth behavior but if the narcissistic behavior continue to have poor people fight among st each other; so they can have their wealth kept. Then a higher power will deem his vengeance.

  • Judge Mental Will

    This article just reminded me it's time for me to get recertified. Thankfully you can do it over the internet now. NO FOOT STAMPS OFFICE FOR ME! NO SIR-REE??

    Your answer is dumb as hell! She has to wait like everybody else in there had to wait.

  • Soon2BWife

    So the news reporter said she was just simply sitting on the floor because their were no seats. Come on now, these reporters be lying. Lol

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

  • Renee26

    Victim shaming at its best! She took off work to handle business and secure childcare so she could continue to work...and because the office was full and she sat on the floor she was bullied to leave by a security guard before the police were called. That's BS that would make anybody mad... I bet she did refuse to leave, she was in need of a service. Granted she could've handed her baby to her momma after the situation escalated to them trying to arrest her but I didn't like the way that bih yanked on that baby to pull him outta her arms. They were too aggressive once again. FTP

  • OvertheMississippi

    But, if I knew I had warrants, I would have gotten my @ss up when asked. Those charges were dropping, but she had not settled her old trangressions. Should have “laid low”. Pun intended!

  • hi-liter

    The DA didn’t agree with this. Charges dropped, case closed.

  • dontgetblocked

    I really don't care about this chick's rights. I'm tired. I'm TIRED of paying for these thots who act like they're entitled.. Yeah! I said it. When you ask for public assistance, act like you have some sense. I've needed programs in the past ...specifically during that damn recession ten years ago. I had snacks and came prepared to wait in the cold, stand in line, beg and plead to keep my heat on. I got the help I needed and I was grateful. I wish I would be rolling around on the floor with my baby. And how was she a security guard with warrants on her azz!

  • Alicia.Ashe

    What is you’re slow azz paying for? Your meth?

  • dontgetblocked

    Really?

  • dontgetblocked

    Her young azz feels entitled. Now she's all the way messed up.

  • speakinmymind

    Her mother was there with her. She could have easily given the child to her mother. Further, she could have avoided and/or de-escalated the situation by not blocking the walkway and/or moving out of the way when asked.

  • dontgetblocked

    She should have left. Why do they have to bring HER a chair?There were lots of mothers with small children standing. That's what happens when you deal with public assistance.

  • dontgetblocked

    Unfortunately, when you're asking for help, you suck it up. Beggers can't be in there tearing the place up and acting ignorant especially if they have a criminal past.

  • dontgetblocked

    Would you feel the same if she stole your credit card and messed up your credit?

  • dontgetblocked

    Public assistance=long lines and crappy service. That's the price you pay.

  • dontgetblocked

    They went home with help. She went to jail.

  • dontgetblocked

    Why be in jail when I can be home chillin'?

  • hi-liter

    That baby must’ve been comatose to sleep through all of that. More like scared as heck.

  • Chicagowise

  • Applebum

    I don’t understand why some people bother coming to work. African American women be so grumpy and moody. You picked the job. It’s a people job where you have to deal with people daily, why come to work grumpy. We all have problems but leave those problems behind when you’re at work. We the people shouldn’t be able to see that you’re unhappy or a moody beetch. That’s not our problems. Do your job with a fake smile on your face. I know that these workers have nasty attitude at these food stamp places. But they want the customers/people to keep cool at all times when their own energy is awful.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Deep sigh...

    "Nyasia Ferguson took the video and confirms that both Headley and her son were not blocking any doors or passageways. When security guards ordered Headley to stand, Eyewitness News is told the mother refused because there were no seats and she had her baby. A supervisor was called - and then police.

    "She called five other security guards, all harassing her, bothering her," Ferguson said. "Everyone...was like, 'leave the girl alone, she's not bothering anyone, just sitting there like all day.' They kept harassing her."

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Entitlement for some. Others is a sense of frustration I think due to previous poor customer service. So they stay ready to snap at a moment's notice.
    It's sad to see.

  • Yup, I said it

    Customer service is poor af, to everybody. I've seen surgeons get physically attacked by patients and CEO's get hung up on when they try to book airline tickets. People are just ill tempered and nasty these day regardless of income level. If you want good service you better move into a chick fila and never leave.

    Its very embarrassing and they love to pop off with the black employees too. In my customer service experience the black people treat other black people the worst and be on their best behavior, grinning and shit with a white service rep.

  • Ryan

    Here we go. The headline of this alone was a dog whistle for the resident racists, lol.

  • Yup, I said it

    I bet the person she got gully with was black too, probably a black man. Some of these rats love to get loud and nasty with black men. If a white Becky had asked her to move she probably would have said "yessum, can I shine ya shoe while I wait." With that blonde hay all up in her hair. You have no dignity or self respect to act like that. I used to work in customer service I got PTSD from it.

    Maybe it's just me but I love my child too much to have us in that predicament. Go home cool off and come back tomorrow. Of go to another office. But the last thing I would do is yank on my own baby to prove a point in a tug of war with the police where my child is the object we're tugging on. I wouldn't want him to get hurt so I'd let go and cooperate at that point. But like I said as a protector you wouldn't jeopardize your child in the first place. She was super selfish for that. PERIOD.

    Working in health care, does not give one the right to mistreat people. When I worked in quality I saw complaints first hand...physicians, nurses and techs. Thankfully hospitals love their licences and show most to the door.

    Many human beings that have Medicaid have because they need it. The attitude of employees who gives off that mindset needs a position like digging ditches or scooping poop.

    So this young lady had a job, but was trying to receive assistance for her son, she had no choice but to bring her child. That's "mandatory" otherwise you lying. This office as most of them, need to be closed for awareness and how to treat those in need, like humans.

    Futhermore, it's not their business to judge. Lies and false documents will catch up to those that dont need it.

    I've heard so many horror stories of how these workers treat people.

    Praying that that baby will forget the trama.

    I have saw black people turn all the way up on a black male and when a white male who was a sobordnite to the black male came in they instantly started to change the way they were speaking and acting thinking the white guy was the boss... I have saw this plenty of times

  • Ryan

    You are. Non-trailer trash would immediately be offended at being accused of being lazy government-leeching fools who attack black people to feel better about their self-imposed plights for a few seconds. Blocked.

    The cops should have never applied force to remove the child from her arms like that. That's just as if someone were in a hostage situation. Cops wouldn't put the life of the hostage at risk at the chance of detaining the person that is the threat. While I agree, she could have avoided this conflict, I disagree with the charges against her that was putting the child in an act prone to injury, and the restraining order. She was not the threat to her child. The cops were. They chose to harm the child, rather than "do nothing". That was their decision. Who was in harm, because she was pissed and decided to sit on the floor to wait for her appointment with her baby?

    This incident and video are examples of modern slavery.

    "The Food Stamp Office", how condescending.

    Online, that social service benefit is officially titled SNAP and described as income based and available to people who are employed, students, small business owners, artists, seasonal workers, and working poor, homeless, and indigent.

    That woman is an employed tax paying citizen and mother yet she was presumed and denigrated as derelict. Why are they criminalizing their applicants? Why in 2018 are they ripping children from the arms of free black people? The slavery parallels and implications here are sickening.

    There must be a civil rights attorney willing to help her sue and secure justice.

  • the guest

    She's an employed tax paying citizen.

  • the guest

    ASAP.

  • Desi

    Boom. Set an example and walk away. Then had the nerve to have pending criminal charges!?!? I feel sorry for that baby's future.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Chile... And they have the NERVE to get customer SERVICE jobs ????

  • BlakBaddie

    What up with the headline, the social service office does more than provide the community with food stamps

  • Ayeola George

    I am a new mom with a new job and its easy to say but maybe this was the ONE day she could get time off to do this. I did not even watch the video because social media is a lie.. you only get a quarter of the story. Who am I to judge? Maybe shes right in some aspects and wrong in others. I wish her and the baby the best.

  • Sha

    Agree totally

  • Sha

    They both were in the wrong, she also put her child in a bad situation.

  • Sha

    What are you saying, ALL African American women aren't like that. You watch to much T.V. I have a smile on my face everyone MORNING, each morning i rise, is a blessing.

  • garrisonville

    this headline is dumb as hell. d@mn get it together. there's no such thing as a "food stamp" office. it's called the department of social services. they have many service they provide. so why even attach "food stamp office" to this article when it clearly states she was there regarding her childcare voucher. ignorance at it finest!!!!

  • garrisonville

    girl i have heard it all. who the hell writes for this site.

  • garrisonville

    who exactly are you paying for? this woman is employed.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    Her prior convictions might be the reason why her daycare vouchers ended. They definitely have something to do with her being in that office in the first place.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I'm sooo hoping it's not d3ad. I'm always thrilled when someone says "Thank you for shopping at Walmart".
    However, with our current administration in office I don't look for a law on Good manners being passed.

    Do You AGREE with HOW the police/security dealt with her ,WHILE Baby in tow?

  • Jonnell High

    and they dropped all charges Sandra Rose i saw this story this morning

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Like I know you or care if you block me. I don't even know wtf you are talking about.....and you don't either.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    I am just going to ask you a simple question. They asked her to leave numerous of times and she refused WITH her baby in her hand? How do you think that they should have handled this?

  • Phillybruh

    I'm not surprised at this headline.

  • Phillybruh

    They could have easily found her a chair she had been in the office for hours before she and her one year old sat on the floor.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I see where she coming from. I go to work with joy and I he dealing with harsh girl in another office when I have to request. I hate going over there because of her. I deep in my heart wish we come together. The world hates black women and then we hate each other.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    AND, I asked you a "simple question " first, as to which you respond with a Question.... we will end this now, I respect your comments and opinions , Have a great day luv! ~Blessings

  • Trace da Ace

    why did the feel the need to try to rip the baby from her arms??? did they not know that was doing more harm than good?? What if they would have broken that baby arm or something in the struggle...who's fault would that be?? I feel like this whole incident was totally unnecessary....she did not have a place to sit, hence why she sat on the floor.....that is the problem...police always want to create more chaos rather than not escalate the problem...that many folks should not have been trying to pull the child away...period...smdh...

  • sherri2016

    They both dont care about you or me the left care for immigration the right whites so your stanning for a group that dont stand for you

  • Anika Kelly

    Ole Sandy with her words play tricks. Just like Fox5 news. always putting us in a negative light. This article could have been written a lot better and not as demeaning but hey, her blog ...her "vision"

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Bless mom and her baby some don't have a plan B and rely on childcare to keep a job. My job let me sneak mine in when plan B wasn't avaliable, some are not fortunate.

  • Karen Brady

    I wonder how many able-bodied adults were not kind enough to offer their seat to at least the 1 year old. Man when I was a kid growing up in Bklyn, my father would make my little brother and I get up out of our seatson the bus for women. No questions asked or fussing, we knew to immediatelt get the hell up.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Happy Holidays! Blessings to you as well.

  • ?jessica?

    My question is, Why would the food stamp office call the police on a mother and her child. They could have simply just let her sit there eventually she would have left instead of making such a unnecessary scene

  • J2PC

    This is about Black folks trying to help other Black Folks. Diverting, scapegoating to avoid dealing with issues pertaining specifically to helping Black folks is why all these different protests, etc. soon fall on deaf ear and forgotten about.

    We can't be all over the place talking about the problems belong to other ethnicities while needing to fix our own. Latinos, Whites, Asians, Indians, genders issues, etc. have their own political leaders and groups to help their own people.

    Stay focus. -unfortunately, it took the Whites & gay communities to give this woman justice. Where were her own Black people in power who could have made some serious phone calls to right this wrong?

    That's what happen Black folks start talking about what's happening way over there with the Latinos instead focusing on identifying, addressing & finding reals solutions for the own problems. If it weren't for those folks, she would be rotting in jail. smh

  • J2PC

    I guess it is the result of long waiting lines with no place to sit other than the floor while needing to hold her young baby. The article said all seats were taken. She was desperate to be seen that day. No voucher for childcare/daycare means losing her job and being sued by the babysitter. -good news is political figures came to the rescue & got her released with charges dropped.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    I am glad that the charges were dropped. I hope that she takes this as a lesson. Next time...leave. It's just that simple.

  • Chicagowise

    It's a pretty sad state of affairs. The entire system needs to be overhauled.

  • DroneRivers

    Her prior record has nothing to do with how she was treated. And that is the only reason her record was made public on the news. They do this every time someone has an altercation with the cops. It's a way of tainting our perception in favor of the officers, like "Oh, well she's a hardened criminal, she must have deserved it."

  • DroneRivers

    You know, you might be on to something. The "president" immediately comes to mind.

  • DroneRivers

    Would I feel she and her baby deserved to be manhandled the way they were? Absolutely not.

  • Chicagowise

    Patients, their friends, and family members will severely test your limits. The nurses have it worse, because they spend more time with them.

  • Chicagowise

    Yes, that could be a contributing factor, as well.

  • mzwhang90210

    They had no business yanking on that baby like that. They wouldn't have yanked on a yt baby like that, TRUST. Now had they broke that baby's arm or ribs, or poked an eye out, they would've jailed the mother for "making" them do it. This is why "they" can get away with treating us like 3rd class citizens...some of "us" are so quick to side with "them." Ugh!!

  • okiseethisthatdumbshit

    why they didnt just bring her a chair

  • okiseethisthatdumbshit

    i live in nyc now and people are always combative about everrthang. i know exactly how this played out...they told she cant sit there, she had a attitude, words between her and the security guard were exchanged, they said they were calling the po po she she said call the mf po po , po po called she still refused to move, forgot she was black and BAM!! now shes news with all her other business in the news too.

  • okiseethisthatdumbshit

    exactly

  • ?jessica?

    Simple as that. It would have all been avoided smdh

  • okiseethisthatdumbshit

    i am a naturally happy and bubbly person so i prolly would have been on the floor playing with my baby if anything like actually playing games and being silly,,,, and when the people walked up i prolly would have explained myself and asked them for a chair and becuz im just goofy looking anyway they prolly would have brought me one. i cant even count how many times ive been "harassed" by white people but becuz of my calm disposition the situation solved itself... so naw not every black woman... lol

  • Mrs. S. O.

    I don't think she "deserved" anything BUT she should have gotten up and moved out of the way to prevent all this mess.

  • Patricia

    i saw through all her bs the first go round. not impressed and the way she was using her baby to resist arrest is sorry as all hell. they shouldnt have dropped those charges. now everybody will be using kids as shields

  • Patricia

    shes an a-hole. theres a similar story in the bible of 2 mothers arguing over an infant. the king said he'll just cut it in 2. the liar said, "fine, do it". of course the real mother pleaded, "please dont. just give her the baby." the king knew who the real mother was after that.
    the police stooped to the same scum level as this trifling mother and could have injured that baby. when put in this situation again,(and im sure there will be now that people will be using their children as shields to evade arrest), they need to concentrate efforts on the suspects arms/limbs to pry them apart, not playing tugofwar with babies' limbs.
