Holy shiat, NICU is stressful enough without people getting arrested.

Sounds like this guy has at least 2 children.  Lovely.

is that a tattoo of a tear on his face?
Once he has his reproductive units removed with duct tape, he can have some real ones.
then, just remove his farking head.

There is no rehab for an animal like that.

Just put two in his fraking head, and make him dig his own grave first.

For some reason I thought it was about some guy attacking a maternity ward with women in labor and wondered why someone would take such a brutal path to suicide.

These cops had every reason to pick the guy up outside the hospital, to trail him with an undercover or whatever in the hospital, then grab him when he's leaving. They elected to pick him up in the absolutely most insanely dangerous way possible instead, and in all likelihood, they will face no consequences whatsoever for their poor decision making. If any normal person recklessly endangered a room full of infants already in a precarious medical state, and a room full of their stressed out parents, we'd not only be fired, we'd be damn near unhirable in any other job. In law enforcement though, actions only have consequences for the people who don't have uniforms.

Really?

Because from reading the article, the individual was simply holding his baby and not harming anyone.

It wasn't until the Police showed up to arrest him that he freaked out and ran.

Granted dropping the baby isn't something you or I would do however it's not as though this individual was beating/abusing the child before the police showed up.

I can see why the threat of police arresting you and placing you in "Pound me in the ass prison" might just make you freak the fark out and run like hell while completely forgetting where or what you're doing.

Kinda like a natural instinct for survival and self-preservation.

But who am I kidding, he's black with a tear tattoo and dropped a baby while running from the Police, KILL THE MOTHER farkER!!!

2013-11-27 11:40:34 AM
I read about half the article before shaking my head. First off, according to the criminal complaint the guy asked the cop to take the child. Presumably there was more than one officer present who could have subdued the suspect while the female officer took the child. Second: why in the the name of Dog did they fire at him? Are the cops in Milwaukee not armed with, I don't know, Tasers? I'm fairly certain there's going to be a civil suit against the police. Third: Jesus. I...just can't.

Was kind of expecting the story to be about the cops trying to arrest a woman in labor, with accompanying testimony from nurses about how three cops were now in comas...or worse. I am severely disappointed.
 
2013-11-27 11:47:02 AM
Damn, he sounds like a winner. The thing is, the police get tips like this one all the time. Except, about 90% of the time; the tipster has no clue what's going on. Just ask any cop what happened after, say the boston bombing. Everyone and their dog were phoning in all sorts of tips; from actually helpful information, to accusations of moon men from mars.

As such, I'm not surprised they sent one or two officers to check it out. Most of the time, the perp turns out to be Mr. Snuffalumpagus.

It's unfortunate that the child was harmed; but it sounds like daddy really didn't want to go to jail. It is also unfortunate that the officer didn't shoot daddy in the head.

I agree with this 100%. And if they would let me put him down like the sick animal that he is, I'd send whoever raised him a bill for the bullets and for every meal and minute of lodging until the deed was done.

But let's not forget that the cop--according to TFA, at least--was asked to take the baby (and we should probably make the presumption that there was at least one other officer there since the article implies there was by saying "police" and not "officer Acosta" throughout the entirety of the article as well as by saying that radio transmission in the hospital was poor--which anyone who has ever tried to use a cellphone in a hospital will be saying "no shiat" to as they read the article) and did not do so. So why isn't Officer Acosta also being charged with child endangerment and the other officers being charged with recklessly discharging their firearms in a farking neonatal intensive care unit (where there is oxygen in use, which is not only a fire risk, but an actual explosion risk)?

The nurses had to have buzzed the officers in. These places are locked down at all times. I've spent plenty of time in 2 different facilities with two of mine. So why on Earth did the nurses not secure the baby before allowing this confrontation? You're only allowed a certain amount of visitors and everyone has to wash the heck out of their hands and there are sterile procedures going on... and the just let cops in off the street? With guns? Without first making sure the baby is in a safe place??? Medical staff is to blame here.

So, you're sating she should have stepped close to the perp and then used both hands to take the baby, thus giving what's-his-name the perfect chance to grab her or her sidearm without being able to effectively resist?

Also, it says he was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm, yet nowhere in the article does it say anything about him having a gun during this encounter.  Did they find it on him, if so, when?  I want to know more about this aspect of the story and how it might relate to him getting shot in the arm by the cops.
 
2013-11-27 12:24:00 PM
Were the cops stupid for arresting him there?  Maybe.  Reading the story, perhaps throwing a NICU infant at a police officer is a sign that this guy was unstable and dangerous and needed arresting ASAP.

On the plus side, that could charge him with felony attempted murder now.  See you in 30 years asshole.

TFA: "he had a history of mistreating a baby"

Seems like a reason to keep him away from a baby while investigating, but not to expect him to drop it like a potato. Also not quite enough justification to pin him down and peel the baby away from him before talking to him. It's just the baby's bad luck to have a father so idiotic. Good luck with your brain genes, kid.

I love when people parse what I say!

Because a complaint that includes a felon in possession of a firearm in a neonatal ICU (that was initiated by a call from someone AT the hospital who was concerned by how the felon was treating the baby and the mother to begin with, according to TFA) obviously only has one officer respond...

1--read & comprehend article

2--if you are going to parse me, parse me in context please.

3--context. Reading comprehension. How do they work?

Holy fark the ignorance here... Guy's a convicted criminal who had an outstanding felony warrant. Hospital staff notified police of his presence and they came to pick him up, where he initially looked to be cooperative (putting his kid dowwn and appearing to put his hands behind his back) but then he bolted down a hallway at which point he produced the firearm and that s when the gunshots happened.  As for waiting outside, there's a ton of entrances and exits to Children's so you can't exactly sit on the front door waiting.  Where the officers went wrong was going out of their jurisdiction without notifying the County sheriffs' or Wauwatosa PD but 999 out of 1000 of these go down with no issues.

THIS.

They may have mishandled the situation, and maybe the best thing to do would have been to wait. On the other hand, there was a farking psycho in the NICU. In fact, someone called the cops because there was a farking psycho in the NICU, and she was worried he might hurt someone. So yeah, perfect "wait it out" situation.

Are you honestly trying to defend the guy who carried a gun into the NICU ward of a hospital? While on probation. Who then dropped his baby and ran from the police?

Well, let's piece this together, since articles don't always have every detail written for you.  The weapon charge was from the incident at the hospital, the chase was very short, and we know he was shot in the arm.  If we were to put these things together, he bolted, they may have locked down the ward which brought the chase to a very short end, he may have pulled the weapon and was shot in the arm, dropping the weapon, and is why he wasn't shot a second time.

The police may have not realized that the man was willing to kill his child if that would've gave him the chance of getting away.  The man is no longer deserves to walk among us.  I say that because any person who puts themselves before their children like he did, should turn in his man card with his junk stapled to it; no longer attached to him.

/RTFA

Damn. I understand that Milwaukee has had racism problems in its police force, but there is not a facepalm big enough for this fail. Nothing justifies that shiat. If he would potentially kill his own baby to escape, he's not rehabilitatable and it's time to just put him down. He'll never be able to empathize with another human being. Hopefully his kid isn't permanently brain damaged now. At least it was crying.

And everyone saying the cops should have just followed the guy, sure, why not, they certainly wouldn't have to justify their actions if he went on rampage -- as he has in the past.

One pesky little problem with that reasoning: "What's-his-name" hadn't actually done anything up to that point - Including running from the police, which necessarily occurred after your hypothetical maximum-paranoia-at-all-times scenario would have happened - To justify, oh I dunno,  shooting at him. Much less, shooting at him in a room full of premies.

This story clearly has some facts missing, but as presented, we should have a whole lot of people facing serious charges of child endangerment, with Ashanti Hendricks not one of them.

And I'll step forward as the first one to say we should put rabid dogs down.  In this case, though, Hendricks ain't the dog.

I know investigative journalism has completely gone to hell; they do, however, generally make a point of at least attempting to mention the single most important detail of the entire situation...

No one saw the part where the cop 'sisn't see' what happened to the kid?:

Acosta asked Hendricks to show his hands, and as soon as Hendricks did, he got up from the futon and ran from the room. Acosta was uncertain what happened to the child Hendricks had been holding, but he did not take the child when he ran, documents state.


So, she's looking right at him, and asking him to put the kid down, and he's standing right there, asking her to take the kid... and she doesn't see what he did with the kid before he ran?????

How is that possible?

No shots were fired in the actual NICU, it was in a hallway were an armed felon was escaping from police trying to serve a felon arrest warrant.
