Infuriating — Cop Threatens to Arrest Breastfeeding Mother Because it Was “Offensive”

Quote:
Columbus, GA – A woman’s Facebook post went viral after a deputy sheriff allegedly threatened to arrest the woman if she refused to stop breastfeeding her baby in public – claiming that it some individuals may find it “offensive.”


Upon being accosted by the officer, Savvy Shukla uploaded a photo and post addressing the incident that took place while in a Piggly Wiggly grocery store with her two children and sister.

Being aware of the law surrounding breastfeeding in Georgia, she attempted to inform the deputy that she was legally allowed to breastfeed her baby in public.
The officer, most likely feeling threatened due to Shukla’s stated knowledge of the law, promptly responded by attempting to assert his perceived authority by claiming she only thought she knew the law. He then proceeded to threaten her with arrest.

“You just THINK you know what the law says and if your nipple becomes exposed I really don’t want to have to arrest you or have you arrested for being offensive. This isn’t like the first amendment where you can say something offensive,” Shukla claimed the agitated deputy told her.

“I’m so upset about it and I understand why this type of harassment can cause moms to stop,” she added.

After Muscogee County Sheriff John T. Darr found out about the incident, he initially took to his Facebook page Monday morning to clarify that breastfeeding is legal in Georgia, and extended his apologies for the incident.

I truly do not understand this animosity towards women who are breast feeding. It baffles me completely. How can anyone be "offended" by something as natural as breathing.

Urinating and defecating are "as natural as breathing". We don't need those to be done in public.

There's a bit of exhibitionism in women who breastfeed in public. Or, I'm a better mother than those who don't breastfeed syndrome.

i know!! the natural bond built between mother and child/ skin to skin touch is not an imperative aspect of child development.

we are way better off as a society if we try and shun this behavior, keep the children at home w/ a nanny eating powdered formula.

damn those little parasites needing to feed every few hours. selfish fucks.

1/3/16-- In an interview with CNN on Wednesday morning, lawyer Elizabeth Beck was questioning Trump in 2011 about a failed Florida real estate project. Beck says she had pre-negotiated breaks during the deposition in order for her to pump. “[Trump] got up, his face got red, he shook his finger at me and he screamed, ‘You’re disgusting, you’re disgusting,’ and he ran out of there,” Beck said. She called his behavior “an absolute meltdown.”

She probably intended to stir shit up so she could have attention and complain about something.

What pisses me off is that we don't really get to see the police officer's side of the story.

I hate how this story basically demands us to assume the cop was trying to be an asshole or some power crazed nazi. I doubt the cop would take time out of their day to simply accost some random lady if they didn't believe what was being done was wrong.

Also, disturbing the peace is a very ambiguous law, so I don't see anything wrong with the officer telling the woman to be cautious. Now, I think that if what the woman claims he said is true, he was a little rude. Still, that doesn't mean we should blow this outta proportion.

How about, because their chid is hungry. That might be beyond your ability to understand.

How about, people who "don't understand" are excited by seeing a breast, and if lucky, a nipple, and they feel bad for being excited, you know, God doesn't want them lusting after women, you know, it's a sin, so of course, like in Islam, or Mohammedanism just for you, they blame the woman for their inability to control their lust.
