I'm in Pensacola so lets get this straight...

People were waiting in line for a 10 pm sales release of special priced cell phones. At 9 pm the woman, who was arrested, pulled the plastic off the display and removed a cell phone. The people in line got into an argument with the woman. She cursed the people in line so security was called. Security, aka off duty law enforcement officers, told the woman to leave the store. In the video notice the officer turn to walk away several times. The woman cursed the officers, refused to leave the store, and caused a scene. She resisted arrest and tried to kick the officers and they pushed her into the gate to get control of her. The woman's baby was handed off to a female Walmart employee until officers secured the woman in the patrol car. Then her baby was brought out where she could see the baby. Another officer drove to the woman's house and picked up her husband so they could hand the baby off to it's father.

Of course - she claims it's racism - but notice the black man in the red pants? He's the one who complained about the woman to begin with!

WOW. Shelly Raea the extended video shows the truth and what you are saying is not the truth. Its funny how you know that facts but nothing you said is shown on the actual tape..... yes someone did open up the case, yes someone was raising hell. Unfortunately for all involved it was not Antonia Bennett. The States Attorney has already dismissed the charge of disorderly conduct due to insufficient evidence. When the whole tape is released to the public alot of people are going to feel stupid.

Did it all have to happen or is the public supposed to accept this "You have it,I want it,I'm taking it" mentality?
