A call for medical assistance on Tuesday evening, June 10, around 7, resulted in a New Canaan mother facing felony charges for risk of injury to a child, according to New Canaan Police Sgt. Carol Ogrinc.
Police responded to a report of a young boy whod fallen while riding a scooter on Putnam Road near White Oak Shade Road. Officers found the boy, 7, had not been wearing a helmet and had some scrapes and bruises, as well as a pretty bad head injury, which was the most concerning, Ogrinc said. The boy was about half a mile from home and was with his brother, 9, who also was riding a scooter.
Investigating the matter further, police believed they had enough probable cause to obtain an arrest warrant for the boys mother, who was at home when the accident occurred; the father was not home. The mother told police that one or both of her sons had told her they were going to play basketball at a neighbors house, Ogrinc said.
Police got a warrant on Friday, June 13, and arrested the woman. She was charged with two counts of risk of injury to a child and was held on a $5,000 bond, which she posted. She is scheduled to appear in court on Monday, June 23.
like all good nazi's....laws are enforced by whim and will.......

The Judge who issued the warrant should be impeached or if elected hounded out of office....
Keep ‘em indoors in front of the DVD player or some nice safe video games. Condition them to receive their life instructions from someone over a video screen and to fear the outdoors.

Oh, The Humanity!
Children are sent across the border from Mexico, and they as well as their parents are considered brave heroes by the government.
An American kid falls off a scooter (sans helmet), and the mother is a irresponsible, dangerous criminal.
I just hope none of these folks ever come into our cul de sac. We have 15 little boys under the age of 9 who play outside all day and ride bikes, scooters, pedal cars, roller skates, jump off of ramps they made on a skateboard, etc. None of them wear helmets, knee pads or any type of protective gear. There is also always someone playing basketball or a couple tossing a football around. Sometimes they crash but you never ever hear any of them cry except for one little three year old who definitely does not like to share the new electric golf cart his grandparents bought him for his birthday.
I was watching a science/technology program a couple of weeks back about ever smarter computers. Basically they said computers will never really be smart like humans until computers can experience the world the same as we do. They’ve got to smell, taste, touch, fall down etc.
I just found it kind of ironic that we’re doing the exact opposite with children these days.
I somehow knew the mom was white.
So this Mom Is arrested but Lois Lerner is at home sipping white wine.
Cheers to your cul de sac. We have some young relatives coming soon for a visit who don’t know what outside is. They aren’t allowed to play outside and don’t know how to ride bikes. Silly me was going to air up the bike tires and let them ride all over the neighborhood just like when I did and like our kids did. I’m guessing baiting a hook and hiking are both out of the question, too.
We can be sure that the boy will appreciate his life of homelessness after the officious robberies committed against his parents. Years later, he’ll be the “homeless male” spotted within a few miles of the scene of some crime. He’ll be one less individual perceived as social competition by the political regulator folks.
And you just had to ruin my day and point that out!! /s
Not to mention playing Smear the Qu**r... So glad I was raised when I was! I was fortunate not to just grow up.
It’s the new Liberal nanny state.
1. the world criminalizes normality. kids fall down. kids that are learning to do something and/or doing something a little risky, are’going to sometimes fall.
2. do not call the cops for help. she’s lucky they didn’t shoot up her house and pets, or even her or her kid.
taking money from whitey. to transfer to you-know-who.
Back when I was a kid, late 60s-mid 70s, it was pretty common for a half dozen of us to walk through the neighborhood with our BB and pellet guns to go to the abandoned gravel plant. There we would shot up whatever we found, and then go back to the neighborhood to play pick up basketball or football.
Can you imagine if that happened today?
This is absolutely ridiculous. Boys will be boys.
Mild injuries ... Do not take a child to the emergency room. Find a known doctor to see. In our case they did stitches in the office.
Every E.R. now has in-take workers aka case workers for DCF. They will separate the injured kid and ask all the questions that will entrap normal parents.
