When my son was less than two weeks from turning eighteen I had had enough. He had pretty much stopped the Hocus Pocus Winnie I Smell A Child Shirt Additionally,I will love this raging episodes by this time but was acting out in other ways. He had dropped out of high school. He refused to get a job. He started smoking both marijuana and cigarettes. He started stealing from family members including myself. I was completely exasperated. We had just gotten home after he had stolen money yet again. He went out for a smoke. I handed him his coat and told him to find somewhere else to stay that night. I was so angry with him and I didn’t want to have another blowout fight with him. He left and I got into my pyjamas and took a Xanax ( I had been prescribed Xanax for panic attacks and I could feel one coming on). Next thing I know the cops were at my door.My little girl who was eleven at the time was inside and my husband had gone to get some video surveillance equipment to put up around the house. My son was standing next to the cop car on the road. I had said something to the effect of “my little girl is inside and you are scaring her.” The female cop said, “we aren’t scaring her”. They then took me to the car. I told them I have spinal injuries and they hurt me. My husband pulled up just as they put me in the car. My son was now on the porch trying to comfort my daughter who was crying hysterically. They told my husband that I “attempted to assault them”. They took me to the next block to the library parking lot where an EMT came. He peeked in the door and I stated again I had pre-existing spinal injuries and they hurt my neck and shoulder and I could feel blood running down my cheek. He didn’t examine me just spoke with the female cop and then said “she’s fine” and left. They then drove me to the county jail.Shouldn’t they be held accountable for falsely accusing me of assault and using excessive force? My attorney had another case in his office with the same cop doing the same thing to someone else in the community. Fortunately for him (and I only say fortunately because he was able to seek out justice in some way).
About a year and a half later, I was picking my daughter up from school for therapy. The school had just been rebuilt, the Hocus Pocus Winnie I Smell A Child Shirt Additionally,I will love this front of the building had not been built yet. The entrance was at a stairwell. I showed my ID and tried to go in. They wouldn’t allow me inside the building. I voiced my concern that it was a violation of state law not to allow a parent inside the school. They sent out a couple of school officials. One average-sized female and one large male. The male had to be over six feet tall and was very muscular. Anyway, I was talking to them and I guess they didn’t like that I knew my rights as a parent. They called the security down, who were police assigned to work there. Because of my previous interaction with the police, their presence made me very scared. I told them I had PTSD due to the police in this city and asked them to please step back. They then got closer and closer. I tried to move away from them. They got more aggressive and grabbed me they took me outside threw me against the stone wall and handcuffed me. They then drove me to the police station, which is basically across the street from the school. While they were writing up a ticket I started having a panic attack. I was crying, trying to breathe and snot was running down my lip. Right across from where I was seated was a paper towel dispenser. I literally only had to take one step to reach it. I got up to grab a paper towel so I could wipe my nose. One cop came in the room and pushed me down and yelled at me for getting up. I told him I was just getting a paper towel. He said I had to get permission. I left with a ticket they followed me to the crosswalk. I didn’t turn around. My daughter was standing at my car with a teacher.The next day I set up a meeting at the district headquarters with the assistant superintendent. She had a police officer in the meeting. Again I was freaked out. I told them what they did and why it was wrong. The cop said they acted just right as that is what they are trained to do if someone has PTSD. Basically I was arrested because of my illness.
