Precious 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.

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.
She is very elegant in her phrasing, and reminds me of this phonograph album my father had called Ella Does Gershwin, or something like that. I can’t remember if that is one of the ones I stole from him, or not??? Anyway, I do remember this song from it:
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:
Double dare her! Lol!
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.
I like Helena Cinta! Beautiful voice and clear pronunciation of the lyrics. Wish I had the translation of the song. Thanks!
Squeeky, you would be a fish out of water in the Nordic countries. They are very socially liberal.
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.
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.
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.
Same old canard, yawn.
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.
Sorry Squeeky, your credibility can’t be compared to MikeA’s. Your “nuggets” of wisdom regarding social issues are merely phobic rantings.
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???

Pogo Hears a Who
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.
BamBam, if the shoe fits….
Hmmm, who to take seriously, Squeeky, MikeA, Squeeky, MikeA, no contest, Mike A. I have never known MikeA to post poo poo poems.
I do like her! I will look up some more of her videos. Here is an amatuer named Helena Cinto I found on youtube, and on some of these she just knocks them out of the park. Like this cover of a Dalida song:
