'Thicker Than Water' Star

ARRESTED For Turning Her Kid Into a Truant

2/18/2014 9:37 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brooklyn Tankard -- one of the stars of Bravo's "Thicker than Water" -- won't be winning any Mom of the Year awards ... she just got popped for allowing her kid to skip school.

Tankard -- known as "Queen Brooklyn" on the show -- was stopped by cops in Murfreesboro, Tennessee for a traffic offense ... and a license check turned up some outstanding warrants ... including one for "Failure to Cause Child to Attend School."

According to court docs ... Tankard's 10-year-old daughter, Diamond, had 16 unexcused absences from school ... and had another 35 unexcused tardies. 

So they arrested Brooklyn for not forcing her kid to go to school. 

She was booked and released.

What really burns my azz is this young woman has EVERY OPPORTUNITY IN THE WORLD to be a decent productive parent. She has NO excuse - she is self centered, lazy, and has more Pity Parties than anyone I know!! If you don't advantage of your blessings, they will slide right over to someone else who will appreciate them!!!

en Todo Momento!!    

what do they expect parents to do? if you don't want to turn your child into some ignorant liberal left communist imbecile, where is she supposed to send her kid to school? well, that would be my problem. i'd be damned if i had to send my kid to some american public school and learn how to be someone's nasty little freaky sex minion. then i'd rather have my kid not be educated at all. until the state creates an alternative, i think she has every right to keep her kid out of school, for her own safety (because what if she establishes that she is on the waste grade human level during this process? what should she do then? give in to it? that is not healthy for a child.). and i am not talking about sending them to private school. no. an american public school where you are not being brainwashed by some zionist freakin liberal communist bullcrap.

Come on people this is not what it sounds like! School policy states that 2 tardies count as 1 absence. Ok yes, she needs to get the kid to school on time but to spin the story to make her sound like a unfit parent. Talk about trying to to turn a mole hill into a mountain! Bigger Cheese!
