Woman Accuses 9 Year Old Boy Of Sexual Assault

In light of the recent SCOTUS hearings, this is interesting. During the hearing, it was said that women should be believed without question. This story is an example of why some level of scrutiny is necessary. That's not to say a victim should not be shown compassion, however.

Quote:
A woman who called the police on a 9-year-old boy accusing him of sexual assault has earned the nickname, “Cornerstore Caroline.”

On Wednesday, Facebook user Jason Stovetop Littlejohn shared a video of the ensuing argument, reportedly outside the Sahara Deli in Flatbush, N.Y. “Meet Cornerstore Caroline. White Woman calls police on a kid, saying he sexually assaulted her,” he wrote. “As I walked up I noticed the argument, apparently, the kid brushed up against her and she said he touched her and decided to call police on a nine-year-old child. As you can see the kid is crying and the mom is upset.”
“I want the cops here right now,” the woman, identified by the New York Post as Teresa Sue Klein of Flatbush, in Brooklyn, says to the 911 operator. “The son grabbed my a**” She also offers to “submit the security tapes for evidence.”

The boy and, presumably, his sister cry and wail in fear while standing next to their mother, as a crowd gathers in defense of the family. “I was just sexually assaulted by a child,” yells the woman to the angry crowd, according to Heavy.

“Are you seriously calling the police?” says a female passerby. “Go away. What is your problem? I’m calling you out.”

Klein responds, “I am a police officer. No, white lady, I will not [go away].” According to Heavy, she was quoting the boy’s mother, who allegedly identified herself as a cop.

Littlejohn did not return Yahoo Lifestyle’s request for comment. On Friday, Pix11 journalist Andrew Ramos tweeted a surveillance video from the store, depicting the boy walking by the woman unaware of her presence, with both his hands in plain view. His oversize backpack appears to have made contact with the woman, who becomes visibly upset. After exchanging heated words with the boy’s mother, she whips out her phone and starts dialing.

She might not have an ass. If that's true then any charges would have been dropped anyway.

According to the article, the store owner said the woman had a history of being "unwell." In fact, when the reporter tried to interview the woman, she called the cops on him.

Obviously no charges were filed against the child. Police responded when a crowd gathered but nobody was charged with anything.

This thread is a failed abortion.

You see that fetus on the table missing limbs and half its brain, screaming "please kill me"?

That fetus is this thread.

Wouldn't this be a better example of the behaviour of someone who is unwell? Perhaps useful for training those that may have to in the course of their job deal with people who are unwell?

I wasn't making fun of her, I was quite serious as this is a real example of someone who is unwell, and I always think real examples are very useful as a learning tool.

Lol. No. Lets hold people accountable for the ******** they spew and the ******** they do. If she has a mental illness, particularly one that causes her to make claims that could ruin innocent peoples lives, it needs to be highlighted and she needs to get help. Sexual assault is obscene, ruining someones life by falsely alleging assault or other misconduct is obscene. Both need to be stamped out as much as possible. You cannot do that by ignoring one and jumping all over the other.

What do you believe would have happened if it hadn't been? The incident seems to have been resolved without it since the description of what it showed is in a post script.

So far as I can see it was an unfortunate incident where this unlucky child and his family got caught up in a stranger's mental health issues, which someone happened to film and post to social media. If it's worth discussing at all it isn't in the context of #metoo (or the racial aspect that the original poster of the video seemed to be emphisising) rather it should be in the context of mental health care provision.

I hope his mother can rise above the situation and explain to him and his sister that he did nothing wrong, and that the woman wasn't really attacking him personally, but was unwell and needs help.

And it could have just as easily gone another way. Sick or not, it wouldn't be the first time a set of loons jumped in with her as their cause and strung the accused up with no trial, you can't possibly be this obtuse.

Gotta be honest, never occurred to me that someone would defend this fraudster... the video clearly shows that she got bumped, said something to the kid, the mother must have said something, the grifter used the "keep talking" hand gesture, and the argument escalated from there.

although the suggestion that Andrew Ramos and Shaun King publicized this "In the name of God Emperor Trump" is absolutely hilarious!

It may not have made it to the news at all if the video wasn't there.

I also wonder what would have happened if the boy was white. Or if the woman was black.

I too agree; this looks like a complex incident, but looks as if it's been solved rather simply. I hope the woman gets help if she does have mental issues.

Well I guess I'm obtuse. Because I see an incident that was highly unlikely to have ever gathered a lynch mob video evidence or not.

I'm with you, but. ..

I believe if there was no video there would be a hearty amount of folks saying "it may have been an over reaction but, just because the kid was nine. ...." in an attempt to sound more sjw than the next guy. It would have been several pages of people avoiding saying the kid should be punished while saying the kid should be punished lest they sound like they don't believe her.

When you have to concoct imaginary scenarios to bolster your point of view, maybe it’s time to reconsider your point of view.

Irony!

Anyway, lets take a look at your post!

"Let's make fun of the mentaly ill."

Hmm, you diagnose her as mentally ill, based on nothing and sarcastically accuse people of "making fun of" her. But "not defending" is your claim, hmmm, seems like you are indeed defending her. But perhaps people with your "mental capacity" can bring forth an explanation that does not depend on attacks?

Yeah I'm pretty confident that you're completely wrong about that; in fact I suspect nobody would've defended the accusation, with the exception perhaps of our resident trolls who reflexively take stances against victims of "daily-living while black" incidents.
