13-year-old Takara Davis was hit by a car and put in a medically induced coma  this week. But while she was being rushed to emergency surgery, a cop felt the need to give Takara’s mom her jaywalking citation. Talk about adding insult to injury. 13-year-old Takara Davis was walking home from school in Las Vegas when a car struck her and left her severely injured. As the 8th grader was being rushed to the hospital in hopes of saving her life, the police felt the need to write up a nice little jaywalking citation and hand deliver it to her mother just as Davis was heading into emergency surgery. As if being hit by a car when jaywalking isn’t a bad enough punishment. This is just throwing salt in a wound and could have been done at a later time. Davis is currently in a medically induced coma as she hopes to make a full recovery. However, when she does come to her senses, she’s going to have to deal with a lousy jaywalking ticket. That’s just SMH worthy on all accounts. “He said, ‘Takara was jaywalking. She has got to go to court on March 6th,'” said Davis’ mother Kelly Obong. “If she was jaywalking, then she was jaywalking. But maybe you give it to me at a later time. Don’t give it to me when they are rushing her into the operating room.” You think? It was ill-advised and a reprehensible action by the police, who claim they were just doing their job. “Our officers conduct themselves in a professional and compassionate way,” a spokesperson from the Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement. “We wouldn’t do anything deliberately insensitive.”
