Police manhandle woman with baby.

Blog King, Mass Appeal

BROOKLYN — Law enforcement officials in Brooklyn (New York) are catching hell after a video went viral that shows police officers manhandling Jazmine Headley while tugging her 1-year-old baby from her arms. The disturbing ordeal took place at the welfare office near 275 Bergen Street. Dozens of applicants and homeless people witnessed the fracas. Jazmine, a 23-year-old black woman, and her baby got tired of standing and sat on the floor. There was apparently a paucity of available seats.

When a female security guard asked her to get her penniless ass off the floor, a recalcitrant Jazmine flipped out. Moments later, police showed up to effectuate an arrest. Realizing compliance was a long shot, officers snatched Jazmine’s baby out of her arms then dragged her across the floor.

“They’re hurting my son,” Jazmine screamed.

“They’re hurting my son!”

Monae Sinclair recorded the corybantic episode then posted the video on Facebook. “She Made The Security Guard Feel Dumb So She Called The Cops On Her & This Was The Outcome,” Monae wrote.

After the dust had settled, Jazmine was charged with resisting arrest, acting in a manner injurious to a child, obstructing governmental administration and criminal trespass. Jazmine’s mother, Jacqueline Jenkins, took custody of the baby and Children’s Services was promptly notified.

“It was unnecessary to use that much force on my daughter,” Jacqueline said.

“Talk to her as much as you can, but you didn’t have to put your hands on her.”

After her arrest, police learned Jazmine had warrants for credit card fraud.

Does she deserve jail time?

  1. PROSECUTE THESE COPS FOR ENDANGERING THAT BABY AND FIRE THEM! THE CITIZENS OF AMERICA WANT THESE COPS BEHINDS BARS! MAKE AN EXAMPLE OUT OF THEM!

  2. Stupid mother Bitch. Hope goes in jail.police Good Work

    SHOOT THE HOOD RAT! SHE RISKED HER OWN CHILD NO ONE ELSE!

    OI GRANNY FATASS YOUR DAUGHTER IS THE ONLY ONE WHO NEEDS PUNISHING! IF YOU HAD DONE A BETTER JOB RAISING HER SHE WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN IN A WELFARE OFFICE IN THE FIRST PLACE, HER HUSBAND WOULD BE LOOKING AFTER HER AND HIS CHILD!

    IF YOU USE YOUR CHILD LIKE SHE DID YOU SHOULD INSTANTLY LOSE THAT CHILD!

  4. If someone breaks the law with their kid and is going to be incarcerated, this is what happens when they don’t give the police their children. She should also be charged with child abuse.

  5. Cops being above the law this is uncalled for this poor child is being tugged on like a rag doll by those cops

  6. This is exactly why I don’t trust cops.

  7. The officer that ‘RIPPED’ that child from his Mother should be SHOT! That child could have been killed. All those in authority at that facility should be charged with attempted murder!

  8. Sad that child was in the middle. I could see if she was threatening harm to the child . God bless this dear child !

  9. Wow.. even our law enforcement can’t do their jobs correctly. To put that kid in terror bc the mom refused to leave for a voucher to help for daycare right before Christmas and to see our government enforcement agencies thinking bc they wear a badge they can continuously tear this child out of a young woman’s hands. We wonder why we have all this hate against our government agencies. This was completely uncalled for and def out of line in public eyes. Why couldn’t you do your job in a more professional madder? You could have seriously injured that child. Who the hell do these cops get trained by. Or bc they can pass a little test their badges are getting to their heads. Every one of those cops should loose their job expecially the one pulling so hard on that baby you can see her bouncing up and down to get ahold of a child a moms trying to seek help to get to work or find a job before the holidays and for a government agency to tear a kid like that to no end bc she won’t leave. And you put her in jail bc she wasn’t going to hand her baby over to crazy ass cops acting like that. I wouldn’t hand my baby over either. Every one should be fired and they should teach their police officers how to properly do their jobs instead of showing public bc they wear a badge they will do what they want. Pathetic

  10. The Biscuit Thief

    Police are way to aggressive these days.

  11. Out The Concrete

    They didn’t have to pull that child like that! That’s despicable! Unnecessary force!

  12. They would have handled it differently if she was white

  13. Maybe they treated her that way because she is was a wanted criminal. And honestly if you don’t just let your child go and Resist police commands or arrest you are endangering your child. And Dhs should have taken your child when you became a criminal before all this happened

  14. These cops have no idea how to negotiate. This is ridiculous!

  15. This just goes to the disrespectful attitude those with a uniform have towards the public. The fact that that facility and their paychecks come from us is not drilled into their heads during training. Why didn’t the guard just go and get her a chair to sit in? They should all be fired, compliance with a uniform is not law. What now you have to bring a lawyer with you to get public services or get thrown in jail?

  16. Where’s Jazmine’s HUSBAND in all this? Oops… my bad… there is NO husband. As for the Babydaddy… that ship sailed a long time ago…

    Let’s see how long it will be until Jazmine starts using other people’s credit cards, give her time!
