The accused are 41-year-old Latonia Howell and 23-year-old Jasmeika Simon.  Each faces a felony charge of physical abuse of a child (intentional causation of bodily harm).

According to the criminal complaint, Howell went into the Burger King restaurant on Saturday, February 27th and “wanted to use multiple coupons.” But the worker told Howell it was company policy that only one coupon be used per transaction.

The complaint indicates “Howell became upset and asked to speak to the manager.” The worker tried to rectify the situation — and as Howell left the restaurant, she told the worker “she was going to have her daughter come back to ‘beat their (expletive).'”

About 15 to 20 minutes later, Howell and Simon returned to the restaurant. The complaint says a worker asked if they had been helped. That’s when “Simon replied, ‘Oh, you’re the one’ and ‘Don’t ever disrespect my mom.” The complaint indicates Simon began punching the worker. As she was leaving, “she threatened to ‘go get her gun’ and come back to Burger King.”

When police interviewed Howell, she “felt the female cashier was being rude to her.” She “admitted telling the cashier that she would have her daughter whoop or kick her (expletive).” Howell also added that “she calls her daughter ‘my little monster’ because she’s ‘no joke’ in regards to being able to fight.”

Simon told police she “believed her mother was treated unfairly by an employee and she went to intimidate the employee.”

If convicted, each of the women faces up to six years in prison and $10,000 in fines.

    It really doesn’t matter Amelia because it’s fully understood that blacks hate both whites AND their own, especially their own who become successful and live in the burbs.

    Let me repeat myaelf, since my comment was deleted…We? Them? This comment is completely racist. You truly believe that these two idiots represent all Black Americans? Do you really think that? Are you really that clueless? You’re assumption is that all Black Americans are beneath you, when in fact, there are Black Americans who are better than you financially, civic ally and (obviously) morally. There are Black Americans living in and dominating suburbs far more successful than the ones you are trying so desparately to keep White. There are also suburbs that prefer not to have the likes of you integrate into them. Not because of your race, but because of your racism. Frankly, I would rather live in a whole neighborhood of successful, good Black people than next to a negative attitude ike yours. You are very UnAmerican.

      Something tells me YOU don’t live in one of those great ‘BLACK AMERICAN’ neighborhoods you speak of, because your grammar and spelling are awful. LOL!
