Doctor Calls Pleajhia Mervin a Liar


I see that the mainstream media now looks to discredit the 16-year old victim, Pleajhia Mervin, who was beatdown on videotape by a 300-pound security guard in Palmdale, CA. ABC News reports that the young lady and her mother lied about her wrist being broken. Earlier this week the security guard claimed that the young lady lied about him calling her 'nappy head'.

Villager, some things ... like a videotape of the incident ... simply do not lie. Mychal Bell also had bad news when police placed him back in custody on charges unrelated to the Jena 6 case.

Wow. The comments on that CBS are unbelievable.

So the doctor gave her medication, put her arm in a sling, and treated her, all because she said she was hurt? And then says that she was not? Since when do doctors do that? This does not smell right...

And, of course, those people responsible for the murder of Martin Lee Anderson were acquitted today..

..and more to come.

The doctor could have given her a sling and medication for pain, not necessarily a broken wrist. He said her wrist was medically listed as normal-to me that means it's not broken, sprained, or bruised but it can still hurt.

Do you have the raw video for this incident, not the cropped stuff from Fox 11? I'd like to see it if you have it, thanks.

I saw that article on Friday and have not posted on ityet, but will from a different perspective than you.

Do you think the doctor is lying about whether or not her wrist is broken? This is a matter of provable or disprovable fact; it's not a matter of opinion or perspective. If it's broken, Pleajhia and her mother can simply prove it by releasing the x-ray.

The video speaks for itself, and I don't think this development takes away from the foul behavior of the guard, the school system, or the police in jumping students, punishing them after being jumped and arresting them for video taping (which is unconstitutional); but at the same time I think Pleajhia and her mother have mislead us. One of those oft situations were people exaggerate, even when they're in the right; to bolster their position.

Either her wrist is broken or it's not. Did the doctor tell them it was broken (and does it say that in the medical record); and if not how can they say that it is, as opposed to saying it hurts?

Okay, say her wrist isnt broken and just hurts. Fine. What I dont get is why she was treated the way she was over cake crumbs. Is it me or did anyone else see a child getting man handled like a grown man over cake crumbs? It is still foul and smells more than fishy to me.

Invisible Woman - I guess we need to wait for more information to come out on this story.

Ms. Marvelous - I agree ... something smells to high heaven on this one.

Theorist - I've not heard of Martin Lee Anderson. I'll need to check his story out.

Ester - Racism is a disease. These people are sick.

Woozie - I only have what has been released by news media in the Palmdale area.

Yobachi - I look forward to seeing your post.

Of course it smells fishy. They didn't tell you that she threw the entire cake on the floor.

Villager said...

Anon - I just want to hear the entire story. I've seen the video and I think the security guard was wrong. If there is cake on the outdoor cafeteria ground ... call the janitor!

Broken wrist or not, racism or not, it's another glaring example of hideous thugism in the land of the fee. Most scary is that many still cannot see the obvious, and turn away with more apathetic vigor.

Villager said...

Anon - Thugism. Haven't heard the word before, but, it is very descriptive!
