On Friday the 18th of October, Robert Donald the third (anyone else imagining a burger peddling clown?) and his wife Yolanda Trotter were called to their child’s school to discuss allegations of bullying with the school’s principal and a police officer. The events that followed have convinced the school that these allegations are truthful and that the child really isn’t to blame in this case.
The couple entered the room shouting and swearing, acting like a “child throwing a temper tantrum” as one witness put it. The couple, who were carrying their thirteen month old baby, were repeatedly asked to calm down and stop swearing in the school, until the police officer called for backup, and she and the principal escorted the irate couple off the premises. The couple continued yelling and swearing as they passed classrooms filled with children and, as they were exiting the school, Donald took off his jacket and challenged the police officer and principal to a fight. At this point two other officers showed up and the couple were placed under arrest.
As one of the officers attempted to arrest Yolanda, she punched the officer in the face. Donald, also resisting arrest at this point, found himself faced with a police officer holding a taser. He grabbed his thirteen month old baby and held the child up as a human shield. Eventually both were taken into custody.
Yolanda (32 years old) was charged with felony battery, obstructing and officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. Donald (33 years old) was charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing an officer.
Hmmm, I don’t see child endangerment listed in there, do you? This couple should have both their children taken away as far as I’m concerned. Using a baby as a human shield? What the fuck were they thinking. Their sort shouldn’t be allowed to have kids. Take their kids away and chemically sterilise them to stop them breeding again. It’s the safest thing for the children after all.
