Pregnant Nurse Hunted By Internet Mob After False Accusations Of Theft and Racism Will Sue, Lawyer Says
“She’s been called a racist, she’s been called a thief, there are reasons defamation laws exist, and we plan to pursue that.”
The nurse at the center of a controversial video that went viral this week has lawyered up and is apparently already pursuing legal action.
Who can blame her? She was just trying to get home, and now her life is ruined because the internet mob came for her.
From National Review:
Lawyer for Pregnant NYC Nurse Involved in Bike Feud Vows to Sue Media for Defamation
The lawyer representing a pregnant New York City physician’s assistant whose confrontation with a group of black men over a rented bike led to her suspension from the hospital where she works said he plans to sue media outlets that cast her as a racist thief.
Sarah Jane Comrie got into an argument last week with a few young black men, who claimed she was stealing a rental bike they paid for. Video of the incident quickly circulated on social media, generating millions of views and prompting Bellevue Hospital to place her on leave pending investigation. Her attorney Justin Marino said he later obtained a receipt, which was provided to multiple outlets, proving Comrie paid for the bike…
“We are gonna get an answer when we start filing defamation lawsuits,” Marino told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer Friday. “She’s been called a racist, she’s been called a thief, there are reasons defamation laws exist, and we plan to pursue that.”

This is a verified GoFundMe for Sarah Comrie, the nurse who was smeared as a racist after a group of black guys tried to steal her bike, being organized by her uncle. She and her husband had to flee their home due to the threats they’ve gotten. https://t.co/QLUVxAwZAi

This is all very reminiscent of Justine Sacco—another leftist internet mob victim based on what was, at worst, an ambiguous tweet.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Oh, I hope they sue Benji Crump for everything he’s worth as well as all the hospital that suspended her as well as all of the media outlets that jumped on the bandwagon and called her a racist thief even when it became evident that she was nothing of the sort.
She and her lawyer should go for BILLIONS for that defamation. (If Dominion is allowed to sue for those amounts then so should she.)
Not sure who downticked you but anyone on here that defends Crump, a pile of human garbage, can go straight to hell.
I’ve obviously pissed off some reader of this blog and he/she now simply down votes me without comment. Would be nice if the system here allowed you to see who up and down voted any particular comment you make. But alas, like the ever elusive “edit button” I suspect that will never happen.
In any case, Benji Crump is just the next race baiting black lawyer in a long line of race baiting black lawyers. He’s really got nothing to be proud of. But here we are and there we go.
Et tu,.deceiver? Well, at least I’m in interesting company.
The blog knows, however, since it doesn’t let anyone vote twice.
It was probably an accident
She should also demand that they publicly apologize to her on major news networks. And that the major news networks, and every network that defamed her, do so as well. Once per hour, at the top of every hour, for 24 hours (heck, maybe even more).
I reckon she should go after people on this order;
1. Each individual “journalist” who talked shit about her like Crump! Make them suffer as individuals outside of their employer! Make them pay from their own pockets!
2. Her employer who SHOULD have known better than to react, without any evidence what do ever, to the Democrat mob.
3. Media outlets who spread lies and defamed her.
Fuck them all and fuck them good and hard until they bleed from their mouths!
I would say that corporations are all cowards but the truth is they are mostly being run by the same people who were happy to abuse that woman.
Remember the keyword: malice.
1. Yes, particularly those who jumped straight on the bandwagon to suggest that a pregnant nurse attacked a gang of teenaged thugs to steal their bicycle. An abjectly stupid concept they ran with and hammered like an anvil.
2. No, provided the employer provided *paid* leave. That’s a norm for out-of-control incidents so they can reply to all questions “The employee is on leave pending the results of the investigation.”
3. Media outlets who were *provided* the receipts and still happily ran clickbait stories should be pounded like a dirty rug until cash runs out their ears and her unborn child has a college fund to Harvard.
By referring to those young men as “thugs” you may have defamed them. Proceed with caution.
Can they provide receipts that they aren’t? 😉
A group of men gang up to bully a woman in public, and try to steal from her, a pregnant woman to be exact.
“Thugs” is an appropriate term, and anyone who disagrees please feel free to provide evidence to the contrary.
Oh, but… they were deprived of opportunity, and all they need is a chance to turn their lives around…!
They need their reparations and all will be well…just ask the Dems.
They’re deprived on account-a they’re depraved
They’re depraved on account a they’re deprived.
BierceAmbrose: I know that is the original line from the play, but I think Char Char Binks adaptation is a better fit to the situation.
BS! Look up the meaning of “Thug” and it perfectly describes these thugs. The Thugs were a gang in India that robbed travelers and TOOK their belongings. How can that defame these guys who did exactly that?
Why would she want her child to go to Harvard?!
Media outlets who ran with the story initially without verifying the facts of the incident need to be taught a lesson, even if they later published an update/ retraction.
They had no business presenting unverified rumors as “fact.”
Not to be “that guy”, but Ben Crump is a lawyer, not a journalist.
So he _really_ should have known better.
It is important that every black grifter be nailed, that is hands down the most out of control group today. How is it that 13% of our population have gotten away with jerking around the other 87% for so long? I do not begrudge blacks success as long as it is based on actual merit. 10% of blacks have an IQ of 100 and up. Those are capable of competing on merit. What happens with the rest?
The vile Dumb-o-crat demagogues are happy to sling baseless accusations of alleged racism, first, and, then, concede facts, later, after lives have been destroyed and societal cohesion has been further eroded and corroded. They have a Narrative(TM) to promote and propagate — and, money to hustle — after all.
If Ben Crump has to work to invent hate crimes race relations must be sturdier than I thought
I would love to live long enough to see someone own him, and own him good. But, his race and fame – and the threat of riots – will save him.
He ain’t the first. Remember Tawana Brawley?
And then it took years to track down that bint so the judgments could be enforced against her.
Lives were ruined because of her.
Do let’s recall the opportunist who orchestrated it all, who parlayed the infamy into a career that beats working.
She ended up in bad shape, the accused worse, and every institution that mess touched was diminished. The middle-things always make out.
Guess what infamous race hustler started that one? Al Sharpton. Of course, it was later proved a total fraud but as usual with black criminals, no one was punished.
I’d absolutely love a segregated country. I’d happily sell my house and relocate if I never had to deal with the attitude of blacks, especially of recent. In southern parlance, they have their ass on their shoulders and are itching for a fight.
I think we might be heading to a time in our country when we redistribute portions of it by race and politics. No secession but redistribution. For instance, take a portion of land and make it leftist and one for the right. There could also be a portion for blacks to set up their own nation with their own laws with no group to hate. I have no idea how it would end up but I think there would be consequences for two of the regions. The left and the black nations would descend into chaos and anarchy because of their disdain for law and order. I’m not sure how the right nation would end up but one thing for sure, it would not be chaos.
“There could also be a portion for blacks to set up their own nation with their own laws with no group to hate.”
How many more times do we need to do that?
Opinion is based upon underlying facts. In the absence of facts or when the facts run counter to your argument about an individual that isn’t an opinion. It is in my view libel/slander at that point. No free pass for those who wish to say ‘well based on what we knew at the time..’; not good enough when a delay of a few hours or days to gather more facts would have changed the article or statement.
The only way to rein in the mob mentality and feeding frenzy where folks skip over the evidence and impatiently and/or inaccurately make false claims about others is to create a deterrent in the form of civil damages. Some media organ or grifter wants to the first to break a story? Make it expensive to do so when they are proven wrong. Make it more profitable to be correct than to be first.
You are giving them too much credit. They continue for days afterwards even when the contrary facts are being made public. Think Oberlin. We are 6-1/2 years out and some of them still don’t have a clue what happened, or refuse to see reality. There is a fine line where “mistaken” becomes actual mental illness.
Especially high damages should be imposed in cases where the available facts run counter to the statements being made.
Don’t need to claim much. Just enough to mount a messaging campaign sufficient to repair reputations, reinstate opportunities lost, and recover financies.
“Redress” as in make things as if it never happened, seems about right. I would think it suffficient if the zeitgeist instigators simply used enough of their air time to set the country’s perceptions back as before. Shouldn’t take more than a decade or so.
They don’t even have to wait for the facts. They could just present the facts they have and avoid prejudicial opinions and commentary. They won’t do that, but it would solve their issue of having to be fast with the news.
I have advocated this principle to be applied to the msm. Make it a law that they have to prove that what they print/air has had a certain amount of due diligence applied before running with it. We as the public have had enough of the ole “Scoop” mentality and couldn’t care less about who had it first but more, who had it right.
Still haven’t seen anything on the what, 5 men bullying a pregnant nurse. Who are they? Do they have criminal backgrounds?
Nobody sane would take the other end of that bet. Five guys willing to do this to a pregnant nurse and no arrest history? No way.
Right off… 50% chance of a rap sheet. If none, then the Left-Law looked the other way. No manners…. no male role model to have burned their buns as a kid. The matriarchal/feral child model in full bloom. The rule of the jungle … asphalt or otherwise.
They’re on the DL, no doubt, just like Jump Kick Man.
No not THAT DL, but probably also that DL
Doubtless hiding out with Larry Page.
You never will either.
In the world that we live in today, when you see a story that says three large black teenage men defend themselves from a small pregnant nurse trying to steal their rental bike, does credibility with that statement ring true? Of course not! That group is the deadliest, most criminal group in America today but the msm would have you believe that this tiny pregnant woman would attack them! This shows how far from reality the msm has become and how little credibility they have. And on top of this horrible mischaracterization, her employer placed her on leave because of it! I hope she is able to retire with the money she is going to get from Crump, NBC, the hospital, and the three thugs that attacked her.
“In the world that we live in today, when you see a story that says three large black teenage men defend themselves from a small pregnant nurse trying to steal their rental bike, does credibility with that statement ring true?”
Yes!!!!1!!!!1!! White supremacy.
I am not quite as strong in my feelings as scotterjay, but, I sure do long for the days when such a group would not DARE do what they did. Back then, they either didn’t do it because it was wrong, or, knew they would suffer consequences because we still had peace and order in our communities.
They haven’t behaved themselves since the FBI broke up the Hey Hey Hey
They should pay for blackening her name.
Nuke the media and press charges against the men who assaulted her for the bike.
Nuke it from orbit. Only way to be sure.
It is NYC. She doesn’t have a chance with a jury. In fact they will make her pay the attorney fees. Black Privilege. They wanted her bike, she was supposed to hand it over.
hard not to notice all of the district and state attorneys making headlines these past few years… all black… all Soros backed types. Eli Whitney doomed us all.
“Eli Whitney doomed us all.”
If he had invented his machine a century before, we might be spared much of today’s mess.
Um. no. Gins don’t PICK cotton. From nps.gov:
My error. But a lot of what is now obsolete farm machines deburred cotton by hand.
I didn’t read your reply all the way through. Brain clutches and bands need adjustment.
Well, the racism gin was invented in the 200s. It gins up racism out of nowhere. That’s more impressive anyways.
So very likely that a pregnant nurse who just finished a 12-hour shift would seek to take on and swindle five young black men. I’m just surprised she didn’t yell, “This is MAGA country!”
Being pregnatnt, AND carrying two bottles of bleach, she didn’t have the strength left to say it.
Thats what happens when you forget to pack the tuna sub.
Perfect, absolutely brilliant comment!
Is she a nurse of Physician Ass’t, I’ve seen both
Nurses can be obviously NP but really don’t go Physician Ass’t route, not often anyway
There’s a 1 year bridge program for a nurse with a BSN to become a PA. It can be done online.
Yet again we see just how much the demand for white supremacists outstrips the demand for them.
Demand outstrips supply…
Diversity, Inequity, Exclusion or DIEversity (e.g. racism).
It’s a shame that her fundraiser is on GoFundMe, as I would like to donate.
But I don’t want to see the fundraiser closed and monies stolen, er, umm, “returned.”
Great cause, bad outfit. You and me both.
She has such a strong case, with such a potential upside, she doesn’t need fundraising. Now, if she sold shares of her future winnings..,
Alternate systems. There are several alternatives to GoFundMe.
One does wonder who’s pissed of they can’t have her booted from Twitter quite so easily as before.
In obviously unrelated news, Trigggernomitry’s bank account was suddently closed without explanation.
The bicycle was not her property. She should have just walked away.
The money used to pay for the bicycle WAS her money. The money she WORKED FOR.
She should just give it up to CRIMINALS?
It was on her credit card. If they stole it and never returned it, she would have been hit with the charges, perhaps more than $1K. They were effectively trying to steal that much from her.
She had paid for it so it was her property.
It was her property, the property SHE RENTED. Should I just walk away if someone invades my apartment?
I knowWhat’s property compared to life, I mean aside from the tools and means of living, and a concrete embodiment of the chunk of life it took to make the thing?
And who cares about neighborhood business getting burned, or retail stores getting looted. They have insurance.
/sarc, of course
(Those bike rental “systems” financial model doesn’t work even with lower historical levels of vandalism and theft. They exist only on subsidy greater than what props up light rail
scamsprojects in the US.)
1) Does anybody think that a white, straight woman is going to fine a jury in the People’s Marxist Republic of Manhattan where 10 people will find in her favor?
2) What were her political views? Here was a woman that worked for a public NYC hospital in Manhattan, lived in Manhattan or Brooklyn (couldn’t bike farther than that) and biked to work. If I were a betting person, I’d bet that she was liberal left and probably voted for the politicians and policies that led to this incident. If so, then my sympathy for her mostly evaporates. When you vote for and support crazy stuff, then you have to be prepared to live with the consequences.
You may be right about that Eric, most in public health tend to the left. But as the old saying goes, “People are liberal until they’re mugged” and “People are conservative until they are falsely arrested/accused”. I think she just might land on our side when this is over.
It doesn’t matter what her political opinions are. She is in the right, and was greatly wronged by so many
According to the studies by Prof Heather McDonald 13% of the population (blacks) commit 50% of the crime and mostly against each other. I wonder if Black on Black crime is considered a hate crime?
Hate crime or no, doubtless the NAACP will be issuing a travel advisory against black neighborhoods any minute now.
Susan Rice Meets With Activist Lawyer Who Stoked Online Mob Against Pregnant Nurse
Benjamin Crump falsely accused Sarah Comrie of stealing a bike from black teenagers
So the meeting had absolutely no connection with the nurse, as far as anyone is even claiming. Wow, that’s some sorry clickbait.
I wonder if she had a noose in her purse? cnn will tell us soon.
