The older I get the more I wonder when people will ever stop shocking me. I suppose the answer to that is NEVER as I read about an Ohio woman who actually used her own breast milk to fend off the police. In the words of all of my grandparents in their thick accents, OY VEY.
What I want to know more than anything is how in the world Mrs. Stephanie Robinette of somewhere in Delaware County, Ohio thought "They are really pissing me off. I think I'll yank my boob out and spray them with my milk. That'll get 'em." Right. What????
As I recall from my blog comments regarding the breast milk baby doll, breast feeding is a most sacred event. Breast milk is a precious commodity and if you don't have a baby attached to your boob, you should be pumping the milk and saving it, not spraying it in the faces of the law. I don't know what is more disturbing though; the fact that she did that or that fact that she was drunk as a skunk when she did.
So there alone she should not only have been arrested for disorderly conduct, she should also be charged with the reckless endangerment of a child. Having an occasional drink while nursing is one thing but being as wasted as Lindsay Lohan on a GOOD day, her baby will be drunk and sick. According to the La Leche League, a baby in its early months can have their liver taxed a great deal when drinking the breast milk of a drunk mother. I find this more upsetting than the use of her Super Soaker Hydro Cannon of a right boob spraying the police officers.
When trying to figure out why this would be Robinette's weapon of choice, I read the following statement made by the town's sheriff: "This is a prime example of how alcohol can make individuals do things they would not normally do." Wow, smart guy. What a revelation!
Any moms out there that have breastfed, have you ever thought to fight someone off with your breast milk? Drunk or not, who THINKS of this!! And what harm did she hope to cause by doing so. I just don't get it. People are getting stranger and stranger; and those strange people are going to be raising children. That thought scares me the most.
In a video from the courtroom, Robinette declares that she is going to get treatment for her alcohol abuse. I don't know if she has any other children but I think on top of her alcohol treatment, a visit from the DCFS is in order. Hopefully if they visit, she will keep her boobs where they belong.
