It Always Comes Down to Chicken Wings.
Remember Latarian Milton, that little Milk Dud who stole his grandmother’s car? He is now officially the poster-child for the failure of the black family.
Woman Says Joyriding Grandson, 7, Beat Her Up
Milton’s grandmother, Vikkita Stratford, told WPBF that the 7-year-old took his mischievous activities to a new level Monday when she said he beat her up inside a Lake Park Wal-Mart.
According to Stratford, the problem began when Milton asked his grandmother for some chicken wings. When she refused, Milton walked over over to the counter and ordered them anyway.
Stratford said that when she confronted him about it, Milton just snapped.
“He just started hitting me — just started hitting me in front of the whole Wal-Mart. Every one in there was upset,” Stratford said.
Stratford told WPBF that Milton hit her stomach, legs and “wherever he could reach me.”
Riviera Beach police picked up Milton from his home and took him to an area hospital for a mental health evaluation Monday afternoon, WPBF reported. The 7-year-old can be held for up to 72 hours while he is evaluated by mental health officials.
Stratford said that she believes Milton’s problems are due to a bad atmosphere with his parents.
“I know what causes the behavior, cause all he’s ever seen was his parents do physical and abusive and verbal things, and I don’t want him to continue in this direction so I’m doing the best I can to get him the help,” she told WPBF.
Stratford said that she is worried about what will happen once the 7-year-old is released from his evaluation. She also told WPBF that she is making sure that Milton won’t have access to her rental car while her SUV is being repaired.
“When I first got the rental he said, ‘Oh, you know, let me take this for a spin,” Stratford said. “So now I just sleep with the keys. I lock them up.”
Thembi Says: Wal-mart…Florida…chicken wings? I really hate when underneath something ridiculous is something so sad and pathetic. Here I am cracking up laughing at this little chubbster while feeling badly enough for his grandmother and he’s putting his hands on her to the point where he needs to be hospitalized? Over some chicken wings? CHICKEN?!?! He doesn’t need a mental health evaluation, he needs a bag of pre-cut carrots and a father. I feel for the grandmother raising semi-abandoned children, but the fact remains that SHE is the one who raised the violent parent that birthed this little punk, so who is really at fault? Crack? Refined sugars? Bad genes? The saddest thing is, in spite of the need to end the cycle of violence, I still wanna beat the black offa him.
