PRICHARD, AL – A live-stream video from an alleged domestic abuser shows him telling a little boy to place a plastic bag over his mother’s head.
The video shows the woman sitting on a couch fixing a girl’s hair while crying. She is heard saying that she could not breathe multiple times. Watch below:
Police say that Edward Moore, 42, live-streamed the video and narrated the apparent abuse. He is now wanted on a domestic violence charge. While holding a plastic bag, Moore is heard saying:
“Do you want this to help you breathe until the meat wagon gets here? It’ll help you breathe until the coroner get here.”
Moore then allegedly ordered the little boy to place the plastic bag he was holding over the woman’s head. Moore is heard saying:
“Put that bag on that (expletive) head and tie it up. She can’t breathe. Put it over her head as tight as you can and make sure she can’t get out of it.”
The video shows the boy walk over to the woman as he attempts to put the plastic bag over his mother’s head, but he is unable to do so because he is clearly confused by the situation. Moore say’s that he is upset because the woman called the cops on him.
He is heard saying:
“Yesterday, my family act a fool. My girl got into it, went in my car. Stole my dope, my weed, and my pills. She called the law on me.”

Mobile Police arrested Moore on a charge of drug possession. This hardly his first time behind bars. Jail records show that he has been booked in Mobile Metro Jail 18 times in the last 23 years.
Moore has been charged multiple times with domestic violence and harassment. Records show that his first domestic charge was third-degree assault back in 1998.
At one point on the live-stream, Moore makes a sinister claim:
“Now, I show this (expletive) and I don’t see none of them coming over to help her. Where are the rest of them at? I got a clip full of bullets. She’s fixing to die in front of her children. I’ll make my son pull the trigger.”
Prichard police have confirmed that the woman was not shot. Cpl. Horace Jackson said in a statement:
“She is okay. She is staying with a family member at this time.”
Jackson stated that someone watching the live-stream called 911. When officers arrived at the Eight Mile home, Moore had already left. Police said that he strangled the woman and beat her with a chair.
“And slapped her in the face with an open fist. She was upset and she was very scared and she feared for her life.”

NBC 15 News spoke with the victim, however, she decline to do an interview. Police said that the Department of Human Resources has been contacted. Prichard Police Chief Walter Knight said in a statement:
“It disgusted me. No child should be subjected to that situation.”
Moore was arrested on an assault/domestic violence third-degree charge. However, he was able to bond out within less than an hour.
“He has been a menace. Dealing with domestic violence and other misdemeanor offenses.”

Far-left San Fran DA dropped domestic violence charges twice on suspect before he allegedly killed baby
April 27th, 2021
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin is being blasted for failing to charge a repeat domestic violence offender who has now been charged with the brutal murder of a seven-month-old baby.
The killing of seven-month-old Synciere Williams—like so many others over the past year—was tragic and preventable. https://t.co/SC0A93V9Fx

Criticism of Boudin’s actions increased as Joseph Williams, 26, was arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of murder in the April 20 death of little Synciere Williams. The child was pronounced dead after Williams brought the child unresponsive to the California Pacific Medical Center at approximately 12:53 p.m. on April 20.
Hospital staff discovered the infant had signs of trauma to his body, and police were called. The infant died a short time later.
According to police, Williams was the child’s “adult male caregiver,” but the two were not related.

Investigators arrested Williams for the murder of the child after determining the cause of death to be blunt force trauma but have not released further details.
Joseph Williams had been arrested twice this year prior to the murder, both times for domestic violence. Both cases were against the same woman with whom Williams had a relationship, but prosecutors in Boudin’s office claimed the cases were dropped because of lack of cooperation from the victim.
Rachel Marshal, a spokeswoman for the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, said:
“Given the lack of cooperation with prosecution, we were unable to move forward with either of those cases.”

Williams was arrested on January 7 for allegedly shoving the woman he was dating while a ten-month-old girl was being pushed in a stroller. The woman told police that Williams had grabbed her by the throat, leaving bruises.
Williams was charged with aggravated assault, suspicion of felony domestic violence, and aggravated assault.
On March 26, Williams was again arrested after police responded to a domestic violence call and found the same woman had allegedly been attacked by him. The woman told police that Williams punched her and pushed her into furniture.

Williams was again charged with suspicion of felony domestic violence and aggravated assault.
Charges in both cases were dropped by District Attorney Boudin’s office.
Boudin had come under fire from gubernatorial candidate Caitlin Jenner for the lack of prosecution and the death of the infant. Jenner tweeted:
“This is horrible and also avoidable. This is horrible and also avoidable. Gavin’s District Attorneys across California are releasing dangerous criminals back onto our streets. Enough is enough.”

Domestic violence advocates also blasted the District Attorney for his failure to prosecute earlier domestic violence incidents. Advocates point out that domestic violence is a crime against the state under California law, and it was Boudin’s responsibility to find a way to prosecute the case.
Kathy Black, the executive director of La Casa de las Madres, a shelter for domestic violence victims in the city, said the District Attorney does not understand the nature of family violence:
“Domestic violence is a crime against the state of California, and the district attorney’s job is to work with what the Police Department has gathered at the crime scene and develop the evidence to present a case.
“That’s his job — it’s not the victim’s job.”
Chesa Boudin is tough on crime. He quickly files murder charges on the suspects he was either lenient with or indifferent to. After all, you don’t want to clog up the court system with all those domestic violence, robbery, and assault cases. https://t.co/hLkCq0k5yo

District Attorney Boudin has reportedly dismissed cases against 113 out of 131 people arrested for felony domestic violence in the last three months of 2020.
Boudin became district attorney of San Francisco in 2019, pledging a commitment to restorative justice over incarceration.
Boudin made headlines earlier this year when he sought a commutation for his own father’s prison sentence from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
His father and mother, David Gilbert and Kathy Boudin, were members of the domestic terror group Weather Underground, and helped commit an armed car robbery in Nyack, New York in 1981.
"Boudin is the son of incarcerated parents, who were imprisoned when he was an infant for acting as getaway drivers in an armored car robbery in upstate New York in 1981 that left two police officers and a security guard dead."
— Val (@Valnofux) January 19, 2020
The robbery left two police officers and a guard dead. The parents dropped off their 14-month-old son at a babysitter before committing the horrible crime.
Gilbert, 76, is not eligible for parole until 2056. Kathy Boudin was released on parole in 2003.
