Mother charged with breast feeding, talking on cell while driving
KETTERING, Ohio—Police say an Ohio mother has been charged with child endangering after another driver reported she was breast-feeding and talking on the phone while driving.
The caller told police in suburban Dayton that he spotted the minivan-driving mother dropping off children at a school Thursday morning.
Officer Michael Burke says authorities used a license plate number to track down 39-year-old Genine Compton, who told them she was breast-feeding and wouldn’t let her child go hungry.
He says the child was younger than 2 years old.
Burke says the legal concern is that Compton had a child in her lap, not that she was breast-feeding in public.
He says she faces up to 180 days in jail and a $1,800 fine if convicted of the misdemeanor.

When are people going to realize that you can't multi-task like this when driving an automobile. Driving in itself has enough dangers without adding to it.
Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.

Another fine example advocating requiring a license to be a parent."If everyone is thinking alike, then someone isn't thinking." -Gen. George S. Patton

The dumb ***** said she would do it again if her child was hungry while she was driving.Romans 13:4
For he is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.

She needs to do the same thing most drivers refuse to do. Do what you are suppose to do if a police car is behind you. Pull as far to the right hand side of the roadway and STOP! AND I MEAN STOP!! Feed the child, replace said child in the non existant properly anchored and approved child seat in the rear seat and continue about your way. Look at that......I'm a f@@king genius.
