On January 22nd 2018, Bethany Nava was riding on the Metro Train in Los Angeles when an officer asked her to move her feet off of the seat. Instead of listening to the officer, Bethany decided to refuse to more her feet. After refusing, the officer than told her to get off of the train. Again, Bethany chose not to listen to the officer. Finally, the officer grabbed Bethany and escorted her off of the train. As this was happening, Bethany was screaming and yelling, telling the officer not to touch her and that she was not getting off of the train because she paid for her ticket.
Once Bethany was off of the train she continued arguing with the officer and resisting arrest. Another woman, Selina Lechuga decided to put her nose where it doesn’t belong, because you know, she has to stick up for “her people.” Her words, not mine. Selina yelled at the officer, cussed at them and even spat on one.
What might be the most disturbing part of all of this, is that people are seriously defending the women. Since when is it ok to tell an officer no when he tells you to stop breaking the rules? Since when is it ok to cuss out, yell at police officers and resist arrest? Since when is it ok to spit on police officers and to act like a damn animal?
Not only does Metro’s customer code of conduct state that “placing feet or shoes on seats or furnishings” is prohibited disorderly conduct, which may be penalized with a warning and/or ejection from the train.” But it was also clear that the train was packed filled. Common sense and courtesy not to put your damn feet on an open seat, especially when several people are standing with no place to sit!
But somehow these girls (and others) feel they are the victim. Talk about privileged!
