    Fausat Ogunbayo Suing City For $900 Trillion For Placing Children In Foster Home

    Wonder why they claimed she was "mentally unstable"? Just that sentence makes her seem perfectly sane.

    Edit: According to her, the FBI are after her sons, and the sons have darker skin due to "radiation". Good grief.

    I think she has a case of schizophrenia, judging by her beliefs about her children's skin color and the FBI. It's very characteristic.

    Yeah, it does sound a bit like schizophrenia.

    Hey man, first rule of suing is to aim high so when they settle out of court they still give you quite a bit of cash. Even if they settle for giving her 5% of the 900 Trill, she'll still make a shit load of cash.

    Well, if her kids spend a fair amount of time out in the sun, she could technically be right...

    Oh my goodness! I hope she is placed under an involantary mental health order and is placed in a secure facility where she can recieve the help she needs. I also hope those beautiful boys recieve good quality care and can get the best start in life possible.

    On a slight tangent, it frustrates me when cities/countries pay out huge settlements for supposed "wrong placements" of children in out of home care. Yes, sometimes the child safety department may make a mistake and a court may issue an order placing the children in state care needlessly. BUT if we have lawsuits all the time soon the department AND the courts will be too scared to take any action and/or place any child in out of home care - even the children who ARE being horribly abused. I am a mandatory reporter of suspected child abuse (which just means I have a legal obligation to report any suspected child endangerment I encounter). There have been times when we have reported a case where a child has come in with severe injuries and the parents have had no reasonable explanation for said injuries, only to be told that no further action is to be taken and the parents walk out of the hospital with the child. We then see the child BACK in our hospital with yet MORE injuries and the cycle starts all over again. We have had children tell us they want to live at the hospital forever, but we can't stop a legal guardian from taking their child. It's horrible to know deep in your waters that a kid is being abused and being helpless to actually do anything and knowing that the system is set up that parents who understand the system (ie know what strings to pull or what threats to make and how to 'assert their rights") can continue to abuse their kids.

    I'd like to know where people get these crazy numbers. $900 Trillion? Really? Isn't that like, 900 times the national debt?

    She's also representing herself in court. Evidently even in the US, no lawyer will take that case. I would love to be a fly on that wall.

    Y'know, while the OP's story is crazy enough, it reminded me of some case a while back that involved some woman claiming P. Diddy and his acomplices: his ex-grilfriend Kim Porter and that Rodney King guy, not only were the ones actually responsible for 9/11 but has also stolen from the accuser a casino chip worth "100 zillions of dollars" or some other impossible number.

    Now I need to look up what happened with that...

    "This woman's argument is about as convincing as Ted Bundy's defense lawyer."

    "I thought Ted Bundy was his own defense lawyer."

    "Precisely."

    Same here. Just the fact that she's suing the city for 900 TRILLION dollars is enough proof that this woman's a moron.

    Representing herself? Oh, that's rich. :lol
