According to MTO, another “reality show casualty” as ex-Housewife on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Lisa Wu Hartwell and husband Ed Hartwell are separated… here. MTO reports that Lisa Wu wasn’t gonna get used to the downgrade in pay that Ed Hartwell was bringin’ in. That’s too bad, as Lisa Wu and Ed made a great couple…
Honestly, the news re Lisa Wu and Ed Hartwell is not surprising at all.
HERE’S the REAL big story over at MediaTakeOut.com… here:
August 20, 2011. MediaTakeOut.com got some very DISTURBING news. A baby sitter named Keyona Davis was arrested for child neglect. She was being PAID to babysit for friends, an AFRICAN AMERICAN FAMILY. Apparently this hick thought it was OK to have her BOYFRIEND drive her and the baby in THE BED OF THE TRUCK!!!
Luckily, motorists called 911 and police CAUGHT HER. Her boyfriend was cited for RECKLESS operation of a vehicle, and she was ARRESTED for child neglect!!
NOTE: Keyona was only transporting the kid in the back of a pickup… strapped securely in his stroller! It’s not like the kid was strapped in a stroller and the stroller with the kid in it “accidentally” drifted off by itself and ended up in a swimming pool ala Alexis and Jimbo’s kids!
Really, what the hell is so “disturbing” about this??? And why was the babysitter arrested?? Hell, we all used to jump in the back of a pickup and drive all over the place… standing up, holding on to the cab of the truck!!! If you are one of the people who did NOT get to do all this fun stuff, then you missed out! Geez, how many people would be arrested back then for doin’ this kinda stuff???
Especially used to love it when an older sister and her boyfriend would make us hide under blankets on the floor of the backseat of the boyfriend’s car to sneak us into drive-ins! Often wonder if those drive-in employees ever noticed a huge lump in the back seat… LOL!!!
Here’s what SH thinks about all these “quick to arrest” stories… and the police who, before someone can get a single word out, knocks the person down to the ground, sticks their knee in their back of the person, cuffs ‘em, then drags them to a standing position. This type of gung-ho police work is especially difficult to watch on shows such as “To Catch A Predator” where the guy is not running away, not resisting arrest, etc. Now, please, SH is NOT saying that these people should not be arrested, as they are clearly breaking the law. It is the method in which the police arrests them… it’s simply not necessary in such cases as the “To Catch A Predator” series…
So, here’s what all these gung-ho, prepare to taser, throw ‘em down on the ground police oughta be askin’ themselves before they use unnecessary arresting (Example: in the “Catch a Predator” series) methods: WWAD???
YES, “WWAD” or “What Would Andy Do?” How would Andy Taylor have approached the adult men who have been ‘lured’ to an underage girl’s home via the internet and promised cookies and ‘sweet tea?’
Here’s what Andy woulda done: ”Sir, you know that you bin caught breakin’ the law now, don’t ya?” ”You done a really, really bad thing… oh, you know that, do ya?” “Weeeellll… now you know that you done wrong and you know that we gotta take you in.” ”I ‘preciate you putting your hands out in front of ya, but put your hands behind your back so’s I can put these handcuffs on you.” ”Now, how are you gonna tell your wife and kids what you did?” ”Now stop cryin’, sir.” “You’ll be spendin’ time with Otis and the other pervs in the jail cell.” ”Barney, put him in the car and get the cuffs… we gotta use them on the next perv that comes outta that house.”
Now don’t be gettin’ all over SH… these are bad guys and deserve the punishment that is given to them by the judge in each case. It’s just that IMO only, there’s no need (especially in the “To Catch a Predator” series ONLY) for all the police using such force… especially when the guy is just about peeing himself when he first spots a police officer.
So, just think about it… WWAD???
NOTE: Oh Lord, I can just hear some of the comments to be made re this. SH realizes that these are different times, the police have different things to look out for (communicable diseases, etc…) when they are arresting someone. SH is only saying that some of the police actions shown on TV are totally unnecessary… and sometimes a little interaction between the police and the perp are all it takes for the situation to be solved.
