*The closer you look at the myth that you can call the police to help you in any matter, the more you learn you can’t. When Tyeesha Mobley‘s son stole money from her purse, she wanted to teach him a lesson he wouldn’t soon forget. But she knew she needed help doing it, so she picked up the phone and called the police.
They seemed to feel her pain and agreed to ‘play along.’ But what she didn’t know, and would soon find out, is that not every cop was on board with her plan.
Her attempt to demonstrate tough love ended up costing her, her freedom and losing custody of her children.
According to The Huffington Post, Mobley called the authorities on her son Keyshawn, whom she hoped to teach a lesson about stealing, after she caught him trying to take $10 from her purse. Mobley and her two children met four responding officers at a nearby gas station and at first, things seemed to go well.
The mom claims that three of the four officers played along, but things went left shortly after the lighthearted exchange.
“Three of them was joking around with my son,” said Mobley, who went on to say that one officer told Keyshawn he would “end up in the police car” if he continued to steal.
The fourth officer, however, was not on board. He became irate over Mobley calling them in the first place.
“This is not our job,” Mobley claims the officer said. “You black bitches don’t know how to take care of your kids.”
After noticing how irate the officer became, Mobley just thought it best to take her children and leave, but the irate cop wouldn’t let her go.“You need to call the kids’ father, not us,” the officer allegedly went on. “We can’t raise your kids. Why are you wasting our time? We aren’t here to raise your kid. Why don’t you take your f*cking kid and leave!”
But when she attempted to do just that he stopped her.
“Oh, where do you think you’re going?” the officer asked before putting her in handcuffs.
Naturally, she wanted to know what was going on, but her inquiries were only met with threats.
“If you’re going to say another f*cking word,” the officer allegedly said, “I’m going to knock your teeth down your throat.”
Mobley was then thrown into the patrol car and kicked by the officer while her children watched in terror.
Another officer reportedly drove up during the incident and told the office arresting Mobley: “We are not supposed to act like this.”
“Black bitches like that,” the arresting officer allegedly responded. “This is how I treat them.”
The nightmare continued. Mobley was charged with child endangerment and lost custody of her boys for four long months that she says “felt like four years.” The charges were dismissed months later, but not before her boys were placed in the custody of a foster mother who Mobley says only spoke Spanish and mistreated her kids.
