Police Arrest Precious In Nicetown For Vicious Hit-And-Run

Precious_Coleman-1024Precious Richardson Coleman, 29, is facing a particularly strong prosecution case in a remarkably disturbing criminal case. Coleman is accused of purposely running over Beatrice “Dee Dee” Spence, 24, and her uncle Damon Watson, 37. She allegedly targeted Spence with her 2004 white Dodge Durango in a jealous rage — resulting in the amputation of Spence’s leg. A video before shows her speeding up in the Nicetown neighborhood of Philadelphia, jumping the curb, and then backing up on the street before fleeing. She is charged with two counts of attempted murder and related offenses. The attack also left Spence without a home after her mother ran out to help her with fried chicken cooking on the stove. [Warning: the story below has foul language]

Coleman mistakenly believed that Spence was dating her boyfriend.

The two women had a long-standing feud. Witnesses say that at 5 a.m. Friday, Coleman drove to Spence’s house and knocked on the door. She reportedly yelled “It’s Precious. Tell your daughter to stop fucking blocking me on Instagram!” She then allegedly threw a brick through the window. Spence’s mother then filed a police report. A few hours later, Coleman called Dee Dee Spence and said that she was coming over. At about 2 pm, Spence reportedly waited for Coleman on the sidewalk with Watson, her uncle. Coleman appeared at the end of the block and then allegedly ran both of them over. Spence was pinned against the porch and her leg was almost completely torn off.

Spence’s mom, Danika Spence, heard the hit-and-run and ran out of the kitchen to help her daughter with turning off the stove where she was cooking fried chicken. As she tried to keep her daughter alive on the street, the oil burst into flames and gutted their home. Spence lived in the house with her mother, two sisters (Alissa and America), and a niece.

In torts, we often have to deal with the question of liability for injuries sustained escaping a negligent or intentional act. For example, jumping out of a careening taxi can expose the tortfeasor to liability for the resulting injuries if they were responsible for the underlying danger. In this case, few would criticize a mother who ran immediately to the side of her daughter to try to save her life in such a horrific attack. While Coleman sounds “judgment proof” financially, an argument could be made that the crime (and tort) was the proximate cause of the fire even though normally leaving chicken frying on the stove would be negligence.

What is clear is that Precious’ time on social media is close to over. She left parts of the car on the street and a video showing the attack. There are a host of witnesses as well as path of destruction in her wake. Most prosecutors would offer little in terms of a plea bargain with such an evidentiary foundation.

  1. Gigi, you ask me to not call anyone a “name” after you address me as “ingrate”? Oh the irony. It’s never “name calling” when your ‘side’ does it, huh? As for moving to another country, you first.

    Oh, I am glad you liked it! You can also find it in French. I understand it to be like Johnny Cash’s Ballad of a Teenage Queen, only here the Queen is a King, But here is a rough “google” type translation:

    Maybe someday you’ll come
    To the village I’m from
    Right by the bay of beautiful Napoli
    Where each Saturday night
    As the vino takes flight
    We sing and dance and love of life is free
    Giorgio plays the guitar
    Sandro the mandolin
    And me I dance and bang on the tambourine
    But when Gigi appears
    The hurrahs and the cheers
    Come from the crowd as he begins to sing

    And in between each song
    They shout and sing out strong

    We love you
    Gigi l’Amoroso
    The greatest Italian lover since man discovered fire
    Gigi l’Amoroso
    If you only knew what you make us do
    With your songs of desire
    For each and every one his favourite song
    Volare, Come Prima, Ö Sole Mio

    Everyone loved Gigi,
    The baker’s wife would leave her shop just to hear him sing,
    The notary’s wife who was a saint blessed him and made the sign of the cross every time
    He opened his mouth, and the widow, the young one,
    Tore her wigs to shreds and put on fancy lace,
    And on and on, everyone loved Gigi,
    Even me, even me, but.

    Came a lady one day
    Rich as all USA
    Who told him Hollywood wasn’t very far
    Oh ! he liked what he heard
    And believed every word
    Like Valentino he’d become a star
    We were all at the boat
    With a lump in our throat
    To wish him well and show him how much we cared
    Everyone in the crowd were all openly proud
    He’d made it now beyond the village square

    And when he said Goodbye
    We all began to cry

    We love you
    Gigi l’Amoroso
    The greatest Italian lover since man discovered fire
    Gigi l’Amoroso
    If you only knew what you make us do
    With your songs of desire
    Arrivederci, Gigi, much success
    The tears you see are tears of happiness

    We stayed ’till the boat was out of sight,
    And we all returned to the village, but,
    It wasn’t the same after he left
    Everything seemed different
    The baker’s wife refused to light the oven
    The notary’s wife, wouldn’t even talk to her husband
    She just kept counting her beads
    And the widow, the young one, cried and went into mourning for a second time
    And me…

    Many days have gone by
    Oh the years how they fly
    The fountain even cried we all missed him so
    Not a word, not a sign
    My heart measured the time
    Oh Gigi, Gigi why did you have to go ?
    Our performance went on
    But the spirit was gone
    Each song we sang was only a memory
    At the end of our show
    As the silence would grow
    Each night I’d hear his haunting melody

    If you only knew
    What you make us do
    With your songs of desire

    Gigi !?
    Is that you in the shadow?
    It is you Gigi
    Come closer!
    Oh let me look at you
    You are crying ? But why are you crying ?
    Oh ! l’American !
    Now I understand
    What do they know except Rock and Roll and “Baby, Baby, Baby”
    That’s not for you, you are Giuseppe, Fabrizio, Luca Santini
    And you are Napoletano !
    Listen Gigi, listen… that’s Giorgio playing
    And that, that’s Sandro’s mandolin
    Wait, Gigi, wait !
    I’ll get my tambourine
    Wait, you can’t leave like that !
    This is your home!
    Listen… you hear them Gigi ?
    The whole town is coming !
    They want you to sing Gigi !
    To sing for them
    They love you Gigi, everybody loves you
    Sing Gigi ! Canta ! Bravo !!! Bravo !
    Carmella, Carmella Carmella lo sai che é arrivato Gigi Cesarina,
    Cesarina scendi è arrivato Gigi da Hollywood ! Ma se te lo dico io che é arrivato scendi no
    Guaglione, guaglione guaglione corri va a dire a zio Gennaro Che é arrivato lo zio Gigi dall’AmericaBravo !

    To each and everyone his favourite song
    Volare, Come Prima, Ô Sole Mio
    We love you Gigi l’Amoroso
    The greatest Italian lover since man discovered fire
    Gigi l’Amoros

    If you only knew what you make us do
    With your songs of desire
    To each and everyone his favourite song
    Volare, Come Prima, Ô Sole Mio
    We love you Gigi l’Amoroso…

  3. Ingrate annie,
    Perhaps then you’d feel more comfortable there. Look, let’s stick to the issues at hand and discuss them without resorting to name calling and hatred.

  4. Squeeky,
    I like Helena Cinta! Beautiful voice and clear pronunciation of the lyrics. Wish I had the translation of the song. Thanks!

  5. Squeeky, you would be a fish out of water in the Nordic countries. They are very socially liberal.

  6. Dear Mike Appleton,
    The foolish one’s are the lawyers. The problem lawyers have in dealing with the guilty is the question of how to be able to twist and turn the situation to making the guilty party… excuse me…defendant, look innocent so she can plead temporary insanity.

    On the other hand, the prosecutor will try to make the defendant look like a monster of madness (which she is) in order to send her to jail and get the victims a gigantic amount of money so he can take his cut of…most of it.

    Furthermore, if the defendant doesn’t have enough money to pay for the attorney fees, we have to pay for all her love feast and hatred foolishness.

    Meanwhile, the said boyfriend of these two wooed females, will move onto the next woman, or women that cross his lustful path. He goes scott free to father many children, have many affairs, and spread many germs along the way.

    Isn’t life…precious?

    Oh, I know. The whole Left gets kind of disoriented when they have to venture beyond name-calling and actually discuss issues. The financial economic Right has the same problem when they have to venture beyond Ayn Rand talking points. It’s a sign of our times. If it gets too bad, I will just move overseas. I think Switzerland will take me. Or one of the Nordic countries.

  8. Squeeky, remember that to Max and Inga, disagreement is “phobic” or “hate” or “racist,” or whatever word is on the Talking Points memo this week.

  9. @Ingannie

    Says the person who reads not her own links, and heads for the hills rather than answer direct questions. But, all that uphill running is probably good for your heart.

  10. Sorry Squeeky, your credibility can’t be compared to MikeA’s. Your “nuggets” of wisdom regarding social issues are merely phobic rantings.

  11. @Max-1

    You asked, “Remember what the real fascists did to the LGBT, pogo?”

    Yeah. The Facists killed about 2% of the number of gays that American gays have killed so far, through grossly negligent, reckless, and irresponsible sexual practices. Plus, the Nazis quit killing them when the war ended. But, American gays are still adding to the death toll.

    Remember that from earlier??? I thought not.

    True. When Mike occasionally does poo poo, he buries it in his article, so people like me have to go dig it out and expose to the sunlight. Which, ain’t the Internet grand???

    Gay fascism resides here.
    = = =
    Not on this thread. I usually find the fascists on the LGBT threads…
    Remember what the real fascists did to the LGBT, pogo?
    Asking and pleading to be equal is NOT fascism. However, granting business and corporations personhood so as to allow them to usurp the natural Rights of the People, is fascism. And, couple that with military interests, bombing campaigns and decades of invasions and wars of aggression… fascism.

  14. Hmmm, who to take seriously, Squeeky, MikeA, Squeeky, MikeA, no contest, Mike A. I have never known MikeA to post poo poo poems.
