Nipple Nazi WTF Moment:


A Kentucky woman was charged with assault after she allegedly squirted breast milk into the face of a deputy, sparking online debate Sunday in the local media.
Toni Tramel, 31, was arrested Thursday for public intoxication in Owensboro, WYMT-TV reported, but it is what she did next which has attracted headlines.
As Tramel changed into an inmate uniform, she squirted a stream of breast milk into the face of the female deputy watching over her.
A press release from the Daviess County, Kentucky, Detention Center, said that after the deputy decontaminated herself from the "bio-hazard", Tramel was charged with third degree assault.
While the public drunkenness was merely a misdemeanor offense, the assault is a felony charge and a US$10,000 bond was set.
Reports of the case have sparked debates about whether using breast milk as a weapon should constitute a felony assault case, with many readers likening it to an accused person spitting on an officer.
Also sparking feedback has been the use of the term "bio-hazard" to describe breast milk. 
Utterly disgusting, on par with the Gitmo 'cocktail', IMO...

And there should be NO debate; If it's a bodily fluid, and it comes in contact with you and it ISN'T YOURS, it's a feckin' bio-hazard. 
Like I said, I would beat the feck out of this 'person.' ARGH! 

I'll bet that baby has a fan-frickin'-tastic future...

Who's upset about this? Breastfeeding nazis?

It is a biohazard b/c diseases can be transmitted via bodily fluids. That's a no-brainer. No need to be PC about this. Just because it's breastmilk and SHOULD be used to nurture a baby doesn't make it sacred.

This is in the same category with spitting in someone's face, I suppose. Just as crude. Just as low-class.

Some people are just animals.

I would give her a major tune up.

Shoot this woman, and put her child up for adoption. Such would be a win-win situation. Oh, and promote the deputy to corporal for using restraint.

Brooke this was my first thought, it is a possible source of the spread of infection. I found it amusing they were debating this.

BATMAN said...

I was bit by a student...was placed on antibiotics and tested for aids and hep. Of course this would be a biohazard.

beamish said...

Would this be considered assault with a fed-ly weapon?

What's her IQ?

Jen: I imagine the hardcore breastfeeders are the ones upset... But as you said, this is a no brainer.

USA: I agree!

TMG: Sounds like a plan!

Z: I imagine society will be seeing her kid in jail soon enough...

Chuck: If she'd had a communicable disease, I'd have insisted she be charged with attempted murder!

Jeff: Yikes! I'm glad you're alright!

Beamish: Ba-dum-dum. :)

AOW: She probably makes Gump look like a genius.

Nice, too, that she's breasfeeding while intoxicated. Doesn't she know that the baby will get ETOH through the milk?

Steve Harkonnen said...

That is really annoying...they should just remove her mams.

First of all, I didn't think that was possible with humans. I have no experience with breastfeeding.

Second, I think the deputy showed remarkable restraint not beating the crap out of this moron. Might as well go for all the bodily fluids, eh ;-)

Brooke said...

Steve: Removing HER would be better, IMO.

Cube: Oh, yes, it is possible. There are several ducts on each nipple, and when the breast is full, the milk can be expressed with a good amount of force.

As much as I think one should breastfeed if possible, if it isn't, I can't stand the type that guilt trip mothers for using formula.

And it's a bodily fluid. Were I that deputy, I don't know if I could show such restraint.
