Both of you have good points. I don't think she should have gotten a biohazard felony charge. Assault, yeah, but unless they can prove she has something communicable and really intended to get the officer sick by it...well, you know.
The thing that bothers me most about this article is that they don't mention the kid or family, just her. If she was breast feeding or full enough to shoot an officer in the face...there is some kind of child out there.
Think maybe they are just respecting the baby's rights?
I mean, if the mom is in for a felony charge, the baby is going to need somewhere to go. I don't think someone can lactate without a child that much...then again, I could be wrong.
Thanks for the comments on this random off-topic issue.
