Activist Post: Mother Torn from Nursing Baby After Arrest For Minor Code Violation: Some months ago in Colorado, a very pregnant Renee Abbott received a knock on the door by a sheriff's deputy alerting her that the Abbotts' cows were loose and needed immediate rounding because they were in the municipal right of way. So she obeyed and did this by herself resulting in a fall and hospitalization. Their fence looked like it had been deliberately damaged by vandals - which is how the cows got loose. The deputy issued her a ticket for “grazing animals in the municipal right of way" even though it was an accident, not even by their doing.
Months went on, baby was fine, and Ethan and Renee were sitting down to dinner with their kids ages seven and four months on April 7 when Weld County law enforcement officers showed up and arrested Renee for - grazing animals in the municipal right of way. God forbid they accidentally eat the special municipal grass! Throw that mom in jail!
