An alert and astute mockdocker sent me an AP article about an Ohio woman who has just been charged with child endangerment because (thankfully) an alert and astute motorist saw that she was both talking on the phone and BREASTFEEDING A CHILD while driving, and called the police.
Yeah. But see, Genine Compton, 39, had a really good explanation. She didn’t want to let her child go hungry. This is what she told the cop. The kid was hungry.
I don’t understand how cops can resist punching people in the face when they hear crap like this. Apparently Genine actually thought she was being pulled over for breastfeeding in public. She didn’t get that there was anything remotely wrong or dangerous about driving at speed with a child drinking from your breastular area. While on the phone.
The worst that can happen to her is 180 days in jail and an $1,800 fine if she’s convicted of the misdemeanor. I think her child should be given to Salma Hayek, who is obviously capable of filling in while Genine serves time.
