“You black b****es don’t know how to take care of your kids … you need to call the kids’ father, not us.”
Bronx, New York – 29-year-old mother, Tyeesha Mobley, recently filed a lawsuit against the NYPD for a wrongful arrest that never should have happened.
According to the lawsuit, Mobley called the police and asked them to talk to her son about stealing after she had caught him taking $10 from her wallet. Mobley felt that she was taking a proactive measure to teach her son a lesson in a creative way that would get his attention.
When NYPD officers arrived on the scene, one of them racially insulted Mobley, assaulted her and arrested her in front of her young children.
It was reported that out of the four officers that arrived, three of them did attempt to take an interest in the situation and teach the child about stealing. However, when a fourth officer decided to verbally and physically attack Mobley, the other officers failed to intervene and allowed the assault and wrongful arrest to continue.
When Mobley asked why she was being arrested the officer said, “If you’re going to say another f***ing word, I’m going to knock your teeth down your throat,” according to the lawsuit.
One female officer who remained in a police vehicle did reportedly roll down her window and say “We are not supposed to act like this.” To which the hostile officer allegedly responded “Black bitches like that … this is how I treat them.”
The lawsuit states that the hostile officer told Mobley, “You black b****es don’t know how to take care of your kids … you need to call the kids’ father, not us … we can’t raise your kids … why are you wasting our time, we aren’t here to raise your kid … why don’t you take your f***ing kid and leave?”
“She was simply trying to make sure her son stayed on the right path. This shouldn’t happen to anyone, let alone to a good mom with her kids,” her lawyer, Philip Sporn, told DNAinfo New York.
That night, both Mobley and her children were taken to the police station. She was charged with child endangerment, a charge that was later thrown out in court. However, the family’s troubles were not over yet, as the children were forced to spend four months in foster care after their mother’s arrest.
To make matters worse, the children were put into a dangerous situation while in foster care. They suffered from burns and untreated asthma attacks. Unfortunately, these children really did get a lesson on what happens when the police show up.
