Mother and Daughter Accused of Attαcking Airport Cop

By  |  8 Comments

A New Jersey mother and daughter are accused of attacking a police officer mother daughter arrestedat an airport on Friday.

According to police, when the daughter arrived at the airport to pick up her mother, she lashed out at an officer who tapped on her window.

At many airports, officers have a responsibility to ensure that traffic keeps flowing, as both a security precaution and a way to avoid congestion. This may’ve been what a Port Authority officer was doing when the cop walked up to 24 year old Nephatira Dansby, who was blocking traffic, and tapped the driver’s side window.

Dansby, who was waiting at the terminal to pick up her mom–Katrina (Sunshine) Dansby—didn’t take kindly to the tap, police claim. Dansby allegedly opened the door, then began pummeling the cop.

“Authorities say that at about 5 p.m. Thursday, 24-year-old Nephatira Dansby started cursing at an officer who asked her to move because her vehicle was blocking two lanes of traffic outside the airport. After the officer pulled her over, Dansby allegedly opened the door into the officer and pushed her out of the way,” the Associated Press reported.

It is not clear what set off Dansby.

Once Katrina Dansby exited the terminal and noticed what was happening to her daughter, she began holding the officer so that her daughter could throw a few more punches.

The officer was taken to the hospital with face and knee injuries.

Both mother and daughter face aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct charges.

On her Facebook, the elder Dansby made no mention of the charges and only complained of having a cold.

    We are living in an undisciplined and rebellious generation of people that do not respect authority, thanks to our government for making law that parents cannot discipline their children or they will end up in jail, just show love, many parents are out of control and have a victim mentality that every one is against them and are big on debt collecting, both mom and daughter need time in the tank to cool off.

      “We are living in an undisciplined and rebellious generation of people that do not respect authority.”

      This is your “generation” as well. Are you saying that you, too, are “undisciplined and rebellious”?

      With no more than this entry to go on, you’ve indicted both people, and remanded them to “the tank to cool off.”

      Having consistently violated the trust of the black community, it would take a fool to trust cops, any copy, or to believe without question their account of any event in which they’ve had a hand.

    Anyone proven to have attacked a police officer should be given twice the time provided for the offense.

    The police officer tapped on her window and she “SNAPPED”. What a waste of time both of these ladies put into this situation . What is really worth the time? Sisters you must do better.

      “The police officer tapped on her window and she ‘SNAPPED’”

      And you know this how? Whose account are you accepting? Have you listened to, or read, the two women’s account of what happened?

      Wouldn’t it be a “better” idea to withhold condemnation, a scolding, a rebuke, or a lecture, until you hear their side?

    Everyone knows or should know one can not stop or park at the arrival lane at any airport. The tap on the window simply means to move along. The average person drives around and comes back and tries the pick up again, Or saints in the phone lot until there party physically at the curb waiting. Some of us have issues with any kind d of authority. Granted we have but one side of the story, how ever we’ve all seen people go off for no apparent reason

      “how ever we’ve all seen people go off for no apparent reason”

      True, including extreme color-aroused cops.

    “There are two sides to every story – sometimes three”. I want to know her side, their side, and the truth. There should be cameras that corroborate somebody’s story.

    I give none of them complete credibility at face value. Neither cops nor the good people whom they arrest always tell the truth.
