2 teens, mother face charges

MOULTRIE — Two teenagers and the mother of one of the teens were arrested Sunday by police investigating a report of people fighting in the roadway in the 300 block of Second Street Northwest.

An officer investigating the reports of fighting at 10:30 a.m. found about 30 people, mostly female, in the area.

There were several pieces of hair in the street that had been pulled out.

Police identified three people that were thought to be involved and handcuffed a teenage girl who was screaming and put her in the back of a police car.

Jasmine Lashon Thyias Mitchell 17, 325 Lakeview Acres, told police that she and some friends were walking down the street when another girl approached and began fighting with a juvenile. When she tried to stop the fight she got in a fight with the other girl.

Quamesia Jenkins, 18, 1814 Overlook Drive, reported that Mitchell and other girls were talking loud and trying to get her to fight. Jenkins got into a fight with a juvenile and Mitchell got involved with the fight.

The fight continued until Jenkins’ mother, Shalaine Jenkins, 35, arrived to break it up, Quamesia Jenkins told police.

Witnesses told police that the fight was over a male and that Quamesia Jenkins initiated the conflict.

All three were charged with disorderly conduct.

In other reported violence:

• An officer investigating a report of a disturbance at 11:05 p.m. Saturday found several groups fighting in the roadway in the 200 block of Second Street Northwest.

• Moneki Huckaby, 400 block Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, reported Sunday that a male companion grabbed her by the neck and pushed her against the wall.

Huckaby told police that the man got angry when he demanded that she put up her childrens’ clothing and she told him she would do it when she got back from church. When she was able to leave their residence she called 911. Warrants will be taken for the man’s arrest, police said.

• Kaysha Trim, 21, 1024 Second Ave. N.W., was charged Saturday with simple battery.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
