MIAMI: Latta Lafrance “Defending” Her Daughter… Was It Worth The Charges, Jail Time, And Embarrassment ?

Everybody in Miami knows what’s going on when it comes to Latta Lafrance, the fight involving her daughter, and the poor Nissan truck that subsequently got destroyed. I promise you guys I don’t have the time to recap the entire situation and pull all the videos, so this post if for the people in the know. To my readers outside of Miami, I’m so sorry. The best I can do for you is embed the below news clip so you can get a high level understanding of what’s going on.

Many of you may remember Latta Lafrance as one of the contributing parties to the ghetto ass fight that took place at the section 8 office .

Anywhoo here are a few high level facts and then we’ll get into the discussion at hand.

  1. Latta’s daughter was involved in a physical altercation at the county fair which resulted in her getting jumped and sprayed with pepper spray.
  2. Latta went to the high school and got into a physical altercation with one of the girls involved in the fair jumping. At said time, Latta allegedly took the girl’s cell phone.
  3. Girl with stolen phone and family drove a nissan truck to Latta’s house in an attempt to recoup the cell phone and most likely fight.
  4. Latta and company were prepared to fight, shot 2 shots in the air, and destroyed the Nissan truck with an ax of some sort.

Those are the very high level details without me getting into the petty ins and outs.

What prompted me to write this post was the disdain I felt for the amount of people who was rooting this mother on for jumping in some teenage bullsh!t under the guise of “defending her daughter”. What was even sadder was the amount of people I went to high school with posting pictures of their kids talking about how they would have done the same thing for their kids. NEWSFLASH, and your ass would have ended up in the same place Latta did, JAIL!

51250403596__73D2576A-54AB-42BF-A86E-8D388A8F3132-1The question I’m posing is, was it worth it? I, along with any other mature adult knows the answer to this question. Hell no it wasn’t worth it! As far as I am concerned, Latta Lafrance handled this all wrong! For one, teenagers fight. You win some and you lose some. Everyone reading this can think back to high school when somebody got jumped. It happens. It does not make it right, but it happens. Considering that Latta’s daughter was not seriously injured, I’m of the mindset that she should have handled this situation through the proper channels, the law! Unfortunately, the people on the other end of Lafrance’s wrath are handling things through the proper channels, albeit voluntarily or by default. Had Latta, opted to handle things properly, maybe, just maybe it would be the young ladies who jumped her daughter wearing the orange jumpsuit.

Here are my closing thoughts. There are 3 roles of a parent, to nurture, provide, and guide. You can’t do either of the 3 from behind bars. While I get that anyone’s initial emotional response would have been to go “whoop ass”, at some point maturity was supposed to take over and rational thoughts should have followed. So for what it’s worth, in the name of “defending her daughter”, Latta went and “whooped ass”, destroyed a truck, and showed them hoes she ain’t the one to be played with. In exchange she copped a handful of charges and is potentially facing a lengthy bid upstate. Who really won?



For those of y’all who were in such support of Latta’s actions, be sure to donate to her Go-Fund me campaign

    My daughter got jumped and they destroyed her car and it wasn’t even her beef and is was dumb shyt my daughter went to the police they didn’t want to take a report. I was furious and can’t lie in wanted to handle it like a fool. I was so upset they did that to my child but I did the right thing and went to the cops and forced them to take a report. They would only arrested one girl but I know I am glad I didn’t do anything stupid to further escalate the situation for it to hurt my family more than what we already were from the situation.

    Not only they vandalize a vehicle that her auto insurance is gonna have to cover the cost of repairs. She also took $900 and used a credit card from the purse she took out the trunk of the vandalized vehilce. Grand theft! On camera at Fingalick’n Restaurant. I hope she hasn’t shitted since being in jail. That lobster was expensive $23. Childish! I know we love our kids, but not enough to go to jail and do time. It wasn’t handled the right way. Do you see the other parent acting out? Nope. Trouble easy to get in and hard to het out. especially when have an arrest records as long as yellow pages. This wasn’t cute it was very childish. Let the law fight your battles when you get grown and know your children act grown. All the her followers pray for her safe return. She will be in a Red suit in the jail soon. Max security cause somebody gone see what she really know. Fighting a child is fighting an adult woman. It’s not over and I bet it won’t end here. She need to stay locked up and thriw away the key jumping on 17 year old. That young lady was sticking with her. Her fight game can’t be that up to date. She didn’t knock her out. Grown women embarrassing themselves, family, and friends. Oh, and her business reputation while living on Section 8.

    That’s why she still sitting in jail. No bail. o bail money. No work. Section 8 house gone. And her daughter gone start another fight cause she too damn grown. Like.mother like daughter. Thats why she is the way she is. Look at the behavior of the parent. She gone ride ause they added those other charges. What can her daughter do for her? Nothing but keep being grown. She was just arrested in 2011, 2015 Aggravated Battery with a weapon. That’s why the girlfriend took the blame for the gun. Now, both they dumb ass in jail..The 17 year old girl she whooped and her mom still enjoying life and press charges. So all those that’s rooting her own when you have a lot to lose. Be smart and chose your battles. She will not be getting of the hook with this one. Her Arrest records are pages.

    Well that a 19 year old was messing with my then 10 year old daughter I fucked her up. She bigger than my daughter, I was bigger than her. Her brother hit my daughter she hit him back. They were the same age and it wasn’t serious until her 19 year old ass came for my 10 year old.

    At what point do you stop acting like a rat… and this is why these young kids today behave like they do because they have children for parents. These parents try too hard to be friends to their kids vs being adults and leading by example the correct way.

    This is sad. My niece went through this 2 weeks ago where she was jumped by over 20 girls and one of the mothers was caught on camera stomping her in the head! Yeah when i found out she got jumped, I wanted to run up there but then that’s my entire career on the line. However; the mother is a whole other story and she will regret ever involving herself in that teenage non sense!

    I agree she could have handled it better but that’s not the whole story and when it’s your child sometimes your emotions get the best of you.

    Latta spoke to the girl about a month ago to get the original issue between her daughter and the girl’s sister resolved but she got on the phone and cussed the dog fuck out of Latta. She told Latta she was 19 and since her daughter is only 15 it’s no longer kid shit at that point. So not only is this bitch grown (at least that’s what she said) but she jumped and maced a 15 year old. Sorry not sorry I probably would have went left too.

    After Latta fought the the girl she showed up to Latta’s house with damn near 50 yes 50 people trying to fight not looking for a cell phone. That’s why shots were fired in the air to make all them bitches scatter. The girl was so scared she left her mama car and it fortunately caught the beating she was gone get.

    I love my boys so much but I have enough sense to know I can’t do s hit for them behind bars. This woman let her emotions get the best of her and I totally get it, but she needed to sit in the corner for about 10 minutes and think about what the consequences were going to be.

    I guess I was raised differently, I never told my mama about fights I had with other children at school. Now if an adult did something she was the first to know. When we were kids you better not be telling your mama, you would get more problems for crying to your mother. She always found out but not from me or my friends.

    TBH, Latta daughter was the one that picked the fight with the girl first, she said so herself, the girl just went and got backup and Latta daughter subsequently got jumped. I don’t condone jumping of any kind, but I don’t condone putting your hands on people first either..

She could’ve been killed going to someone’s house (I keep me registered gun) for dumb folks like Miss Latta.

    I was trying to explain this very thing to an idiot over on B. Scott’s page. This had nothing to do with defending her daughter. She was trying to relive her high school days, I guess. It’s fckng insane how people caped for this woman. And said idiot on B. Scott’s page even had the nerve to suggest that this is common practice within the black and hispanic community. Really? I can’t!
