13 Minute RAW INTERVIEW ABOVE WITH BRENDA HARDAWAY
Rochester, N.Y. - At home with her two-week old baby, Brenda Hardaway said she has a new perspective on life.
“I’m so happy to be a mom,” Hardaway said as she stared down at her sleeping son, Legend. “He’s a tragic little kid but he made it.”
For about three months of her pregnancy, Hardaway was at the Monroe County Jail facing five charges, including assault on a police officer.
“I don’t think the justice system played me any kind of fairness in this.”
Hardaway made national headlines when the video of her arrest and the events that led up to it went viral in August.
“When I watch the video, still to this day, I hate watching it. I cry because it’s horrifying, I hate it,” Hardaway said.
