All the charges have been dropped against Jazmine Headley, the woman who waited for nearly four hours to renew daycare vouchers in a New York City agency office that didn’t have enough chairs.
That’s an unsatisfying end to an outrageous event in which Ferguson was, basically, assaulted by police officers. Her crime? She was sitting on the floor.
So I’m At 275 Bergen Street Handling My Business Or Whatever & There Wasn’t Any More Chairs For This Lady To Sit Down So She Sat In The Corner On The Floor. The Security Guard Came Over Said What Ever She Said To Her & She Made The Security Guard Feel Dumb So She Called The Cops On Her & This Was The Outcome SMH Mind You She Had Her Baby In Her Hands The Whole Time🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️ I'm So Fucking Disgusted with The NYPD😡😡 EVRYBODY PLEASE SHARE!!! I’m a mother myself & I would’ve lost my fucking mind if this was me they would've had to kill me🤬🤬🤬🤬

“The security guard, I guess she came over and told her she couldn’t sit there,” witness Nyashia Ferson, who took the video, told CBS. “So she’s like, ‘Where am I going to sit?’ She was like, ‘I guess you’re going to just have to stand.’ She said, ‘Well, I’m not going to stand with my son. She was like, ‘What is the crime? What did I do wrong?’ And then it just escalated.”
This is the burden of poverty: Four-hour waits for daycare vouchers so you can keep your job. No sitting.
Eric Gonzalez, the Brooklyn district attorney, dropped all the charges today.

She remained jailed on Tuesday afternoon on a warrant after she missed a New Jersey court appearance on a misdemeanor charge, the New York Times reported.
