BJ'S BLOG 07/22/14 "Baby in the Pit?!"
Here’s another Terminal Case of Stupid, gang…
30-year-old Megan Christopherson has been in the news lately, and it’s not because she’s contributing positively to society.
Megan brought her 4-month-old daughter to a Brad Paisley concert, and was completely shocked and outraged when police wouldn’t let her bring the baby (and her other, slightly-older daughter) into the pit!
Police asked her to leave the pit, pointing out the obvious risks to the well-being of her children. She claims that they made her leave for breast-feeding, which she had apparently been asked to stop earlier during the event.
Megan posted video of the incident and tried to claim police harassed her, but the recording does nothing but show how patient and polite they were. Unbelievably, they had to repeatedly explain how her actions were bordering on child endangerment – exposing tiny eardrums to loud music, not to mention the potential physical harm of having the kids in a tightly-populated group of excited fans.
Megan’s arguments were outrageously stupid, but even worse - she has apparently done this before! I don’t know why I’m shocked, but this one just makes me mad. Megan left the show, rejecting the very kind offer of proper seats located further back, but she ran to YouTube to make her case against the police and concert security. Sadly, this has become national news, but Brad Paisley himself has publicly confirmed that he’s in complete support of the police officers’ decision, because bringing young kids to a concert like that is just a bad idea.
The entire video is posted below, so take a look, and let me know what you think of this mother’s judgment!
