Mother Denise Wilson refused to give up her baby when confronted by police and social workers. Kentucky police overwhelmed her and took the baby by force. The news article is remarkable for the epithets thrown at the mother:
Wilson was arrested and charged with wanton endangerment, obstructing governmental operations and terroristic threatening. The people of Kentucky are well protected from the menace of mothers loving their own babies.
POLICE: Suspect "shook" 8-month-old in front of CPS worker
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say a mother made the wrong move when she chose to shake her 8-month-old child in front of police and a Child Protective Services worker.
According to an arrest report, it happened at a home on Woodland Avenue, near the intersection of Wilson Avenue and S. 26th St., shortly after 9 p.m. Thursday night.
Police say officers accompanied a CPS worker to the home to assist them in removing the child from the custody of her mother, 19-year-old Denise Wilson.
But police say Wilson wasn't about to let that happen. According to the arrest report, she "interfered" with a "lawful court order" to remove the child and give temporary custody to CPS. While police attempted to take the 8-month-old, Wilson allegedly "squeezed the child with her arms and shook the baby from side-to-side."
Police say her actions "created a substantial danger of physical injury to the child."
Wilson then allegedly said that she was going to "get" the social worker, and that the social worker would "get hers."
Wilson was arrested at her home. She's charged with wanton endangerment, obstructing governmental operations and terroristic threatening.
