Suffolk University Basketball Player Finds Out “I’m A Proud American” Is Not A Get Out Of Jail Free Card
Freedom isn’t free. It costs a trip to central booking and a team suspension in Boston.
Suffolk University basketball player Dominique Demar was suspended from the team after being arrested and charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest. The weapon? A door.
Boston police said that about 12:30 a.m. Sunday they received several complaints about a loud party at 28 Fleet St. in the North End.
Officers went to the noisy apartment and knocked on the door, police said.
After about 20 minutes, officers said the door opened. A woman later identified as Demar yelled an obscenity at the officers and then slammed the door shut on an officer’s shoulder, police said.
She then tried to escape from the apartment, saying, “I’m out of here. I’m a proud American,” according to police.
After a brief struggle, officers arrested Demar, police said. She allegedly told officers that she wanted them to know that her mother is an attorney.
Who knew Boston Police hated freedom almost as much as they hate black people? Crispus Attucks is rolling in his grave. Probably because he’s getting beat up by Sully from Southie.
Police should have free reign to go straight Rodney King on any child who drops “My [parent] is a lawyer/attorney”. There should be a charge for that nonsense. Any self-respecting lawyer knows better than to drop that mess when confronted by law enforcement. “Yeah that’s real good, law dog cause law don’t go round here.” Professors should include that nugget in Professional Responsibility class and it should be covered on the MPRE.
How great is it that Demar’s attorney “couldn’t make it to her court appearance”? Guess he and her mother had better things to do than cover for her chickenhead daughter.
