Good on mom for trying to ensure her son knows that school is an important priority, and working to better her children.

Its also somewhat encouraging that she as a single mother still finds time to have a fun nightlife.

I'm also happy for her that she knows when to ask for assistence.

Boo on the p[olice officer for turning a case of a woman asking for help with directions into a felony prosecution.

Was this one the day the President was speaking to schoolchildren about listening and respecting their parents?

Would have been so much better if she had an Obama themed shirt on.

God that would have been win.

How appropriate to include the late senator from the state of perpetual drunkenness.

Have we reached the point of realizing that "making fun of Detroit is like picking on the retarded kid", because that was my initial thought.

We still put up florida articles so picking on detroit is right up our alley.

Let me guess: She looks black.
 
2009-09-10 04:44:30 AM
She does look rather black.
 
2009-09-10 04:50:25 AM
Of course she's black. For what other reason would the police stop her and make her blow the breathalyzer?
 
2009-09-10 04:51:05 AM
Black people in Detroit?

It's more likely than you think.
 
2009-09-10 04:57:28 AM
To be fair, it was probably from the night before. Once you sleep you're sober, regardless of your BAC.

Or, so I was told.

There are no black people in Detroit. This is a myth, much like Bigfoot or the Loch Ness monster.

FTA: she blew a [point]29. That is over three times the current .08 legal limit. However, in times past the limit was [point]10. She is just under 3x the traditional limit. She just has to adjust with the times. Put the third bloody mary down until all the kids are off to school.

Is that so hard?
 
2009-09-10 05:22:32 AM
Just as I suspected.

Is anyone else bothered by the fact a person's mug can be run in the newspaper before the trial/jury occurs?
 
2009-09-10 05:33:08 AM
I was hoping this would be amusing, but after reading about the felony counts, now I'm just sad for the kid.

Not only does he have a terrible mom, soon he'll a terrible mom in jail, or will be in foster care.

That's a rough situation to deal with, and he's only six years old.

What a selfish asshole this mother is.

It is concerning, but so accepted by now it's unlikely to change.

If it is on file from a previous arrest, I've heard tell it is public record.

I didn't realize that there were any white people left in detroit. They kind of have to make black people do it.

Hey, hate to burst your bubble, guys:

This woman is from Birmingham, a RICH and OVERWHELMINGLY WHITE suburb. This is not a "black Detroit" thing.

/ When I say rich, I don't mean "rich for Detroit." Birmingham is where the grandchillen' of the Big 3 founders live lives of quiet desperation, fearing for their life from all the horrible black people.

// Yes, I know the woman is black, but whatevs. If she's from Birmingham, she's drinking to escape the hell of suburbia, not Detroit.
 
2009-09-10 06:48:10 AM
For the record: The woman was arrested in Ferndale, a predominately white suburb north of Detroit. The arrested woman is from Birmingham, an affluent and predominately white suburb even farther north of Detroit. She was charged not with a felony, but with a misdemeanor. A second offense of the same violation would be a felony.

Reading comprehension. Learn it. Know it. Live it.

nah, it's the newpspaper's duty to ensure that the 'offender' is throughly humiliated and shamed. pssh, why else would they be allowed to run it?

I really kind of hate myself for seeing the headline and immediately wondering if she was black.

Apparently, the negro community needs to frown on my shenanigans. They should also frown on hers, as well. STOP PERPETRATING THE STEREOTYPE!!

bobbette: What a selfish asshole this mother is.

Unfortunately, I get the feeling this is the only behavior she knows, if you know what I mean. And it'll be the only behavior her kid knows, as well. :-(

I'm still wondering, though I do now know what a woman driving her son to school at 8:45 in the morning while registering a .29 BAC looks like.

/Not surprised by an idiot parent being an idiot driving kid to school
//Deal with plenty of idiots speeding through 5 residential blocks when walking my younger son to school
///As if 70mph and blowing stop signs is going to get their kids to school that much faster
////Why not just leave half a minute earlier?

xanadian: I really kind of hate myself for seeing the headline and immediately wondering if she was black.

I've seen this in--well, just about every Fark thread, actually. I still don't get it; do people actually innocently assume a race attached to a subject in a story, or is it just a sort-of passive-aggressive racism?

/ I bet you're white?
// idfk, nor do I care honestly
 
2009-09-10 07:36:50 AM
to be fair, I DID tell her to wait till she got back to drink that last one before dropping me off at school. Mom's a little thick headed like that.

/anyone wanna adopt me?

Spacey and toasted at 7 AM? Did you just get back from taking the kids to school? ;-)

Granted you have a point, but if you drank so much the night before that you still blew a .29 the next day [which is fairly high on its own] you have issues.

"Dena Ellington, 45, of Birmingham stopped her Land Rover in the parking lot of Taft Education Center at 8:40 a.m. Tuesday to ask for directions to Coolidge Intermediate School"

Need to take son to school? Check.
Drunk? Check.
Drunk enough to drive him to the wrong farking school? Check.
Drunk enough to ask a cop for directions to the right school? Check.

Yep... it all checks out. The FAIL is strong with this one.
