Woman breast feeding her 3 month old cop tells her to stop, she doesn't, goes to get on a bus and the cop grabs her from behind for "resisting arrest" causing the baby to fall to the ground. There is another article that he was cleared of all charges. I know she didn't comply with Mr. Officers request and she didn't bow down to him for an arrest, but this is just all kinds of fucked up.

Suzanne Smith, Layla’s mother, had been sitting on a bench in Queens waiting for the bus when Layla began to insistently cry. Knowing that her baby was hungry Ms. Smith began to breastfeed her daughter. Witnesses at the scene report that she was then approached by a NYPD Officer, later identified as Michael Fitzsimmons, who requested that she stop feeding the baby in public as it was “indecent”. Ms. Smith refused to comply with the directive and told Officer Fitzsimmons that she wasn’t doing anything illegal. Officer Fitzsimmons again insisted that she stop and threatened to arrest her for indecent exposure. Ms. Smith calmly responded to the Officer that he could not arrest her because breastfeeding in public wasn’t against the law.

Isn't it legal to be topless in NYC? What a fucked up situation.

Yeah, that story is fake isn't it? Sad that it doesn't seem far fetched.
