Episode 43 - The Worst Story of 2023 That You Never Heard

In this episode, we discuss the August 10, 2023 case where Quantavious Eason, a 10-year-old Black boy from Senatobia, Mississippi, was arrested after he urinated behind his mother’s car while she was inside a local business.

Four Senatobia police officers arrested the third grader when they saw him urinating in a public parking lot beside his mother’s car. Despite his mother being present after the incident, the officers put the 10-year-old in the back of their squad car and booked him into a cell before releasing him.
Paige Williams, the Tate County Youth Court prosecutor, took the case and cited Quantavious as a “child in need of services.” According to Quantavious’s attorney, Williams threatened to upgrade the citation to “disorderly conduct” if the family pushed for a trial.

Where are the adults in the room? If this isn’t the biggest waste of tax dollars and a serious abuse of power, I don’t know what it is!
