Another Black Mother, Another Dumpster Baby

Another Black mother is in the news for dumping her baby in an apartment complex dumpster. Previously we reported on 31-year-old Tina Farrington from Homestead, Fl. being arrested after killing her four-year-old daughter on Halloween, placing her body in the trunk of her car, and then dumping her body in the dumpster that following Sunday because of her rotting odor.

Well another Black queen just couldn’t deal with having a child so she decided to dump her blessing (you know since all kids are blessings) in the dumpster.

27-year-old Althea Johnson was arrested Tuesday morning for abandoning her newborn child in a dumpster two weeks ago. She is charged with abandoning a child, a second-degree felony. Her bail is set at $60,000.

According to KXAN:
The newborn was found in a dumpster at the Mira Vista Apartment at 9601 Middle Fiskville Rd., near Rundberg Lane, around 6:55 a.m. on Oct. 25 by a man who was dumpster diving. The man told police when he heard crying, he moved a piece of trash and found the baby, according to the arrest affidavit.
A trail of blood led detectives from the dumpster all the way to Johnson’s master bathroom. When asked about the blood, Johnson replied that she was on her period. She told investigators that she was last pregnant November 2016. Johnson later confessed that the baby was hers but stated that she hid the baby in the bushes (like that’s any better). The remorseless Johnson later admitted to dumping the newborn in the dumpster.

Investigators also noticed cleaning supplies and a sponge on the toilet according to the affidavit.

“Althea Johnson knew that Baby was alive, seeing her eyes open,” the affidavit stated. “Despite having a working cell phone, Althea Johnson did not call 9-1-1 or anyone else.”
The baby girlwas found by the dumpster diver with the placenta still attached. The baby was taken to the hospital in critical condition but has since been released into the custody of Johnson’s family said the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. Johnson’s two other kids were placed with family members as well.

Notice in these cases where the mother abandons or kills their child any remaining kids are not placed in the custody of the biological father.

The dumpster where the baby was found was scheduled for trash pickup that day but the trash truck was unable to unload the dumpster because of the crime scene tape as the scene was processed.

Neighbors of Johnson were reportedly suspicious of her according to KXAN. The publication wrote:

Teresa Reese, who lives in the apartment complex, told KXAN she was getting ready to take her daughter to school when she saw a man hovering over the dumpster. The man asked her for the name of the apartment complex and told her there was a baby inside the dumpster. “I just started crying hysterically,” Reese said the day it happened.
When KXAN caught back up with Reese after Johnson’s arrest, she said she and other neighbors had been suspicious of Johnson. Reese says some saw her still pregnant the day before the baby was found. She also says Johnson was outside watching the investigation on the day the baby was discovered.
“She actually approached me,” Reese recalled. “No emotion, no anything, and she was like, ‘What happened?’ And I’m like, I looked straight at her stomach, I don’t know why but I just looked straight at her stomach and I’m like, ‘Someone threw a baby in the dumpster,’ and there was no emotion. Everybody else was hysterical, we’re crying, we feel this, and with her, there was no emotion, whatsoever.”
“You know what it’s like to give life, you know what it’s like to see that beautiful being,” Reese said. “You had to take the time out to lay eyes on this baby, you had to take the time out to wrap this baby up, you had to take the time out to walk from your place all the way to the dumpster, and not in any one of those moments, not in any one of those moments did you think, ‘I can’t do this.’ Not one time did you have remorse.”
On Wednesday, a child abuse officer with the Austin Police Dept. said that the dumpster diver played an integral role in saving the newborn baby girl’s life. “I really feel like the baby kind of had a guardian angel,” said detective Lee Knouse of APD’s Child Abuse Unit. “That gentleman wasn’t looking for a baby in a dumpster. He didn’t hear a cry before he went into that dumpster. He just happened to be in there, and he heard it.”

There may have been warning signs that this queen was unfit for parenting according to neighbors. One neighbor who didn’t want to be identified said that Johnson had three other kids, a son who is a toddler and two daughters, ages 7 and 8, and they would come to her house everyday to eat breakfast and snacks after school. “They told me that the only food they got was the food that was at school,” said the neighbor.

According to her the children did not appear to be well taken care of.

“A lot of times, they weren’t dressed properly for the weather, or you know, they’d come over and their hair wasn’t combed,” she said. “I’d do what I could to get them out the door and proper for school.”

But what about the father? Hopefully in this case, the father was able to escape the destructive nature of America’s ratchet and mainstream Black women and opting for someone better suited for life’s twists and turns like the father of Tina Farrington’s four-year-old. It was later reported that he was a Miami Beach police officer and had been involved in legal proceedings with the mother. He saw it was best for his survival to escape the Terminatrix.
