Mainstream Media Fails

Pawtucket Pumpwagon Cons Government COVID Program To Pay Off Her $7,200 In Rent To Avoid Her 8th Eviction Despite Prior Food Stamp Fraud Charges And Plenty Of Cash For Ghetto-Fabulous Lifestyle  


This is Sandra Bagwell from Pawtucket.

She was featured on the news recently after the Rhode Island state run Rent Relief program and a non-profit allegedly saved her from eviction, domestic violence, and COVID at the same time.

Sandra Bagwell tells 12 News she was on the verge of being kicked out of her Pawtucket apartment amid the pandemic, but the state’s RentReliefRI program helped her get back on track.

“I wasn’t able to work because of COVID,” Bagwell explained, adding that she also fell victim to domestic violence. “In the situation I was in, I was really falling back on everything as far as rent and bills and stuff like that. [The pandemic] really had me struggling,” she continued. “Sometimes you can get depressed and you think you can’t get out of it.”

But just when Bagwell began losing hope, she met Katie Barrington of Crossroads Rhode Island. The nonprofit organization has been working alongside R.I. Housing since the rent relief program launched in April. Barrington said she’s helped file more than 100 RentReliefRI applications, and so far, 15 of them have already been approved, including Bagwell’s. Bagwell credited her second chance to Barrington, who helped her through the process.

“I have a whole new start on life. I am so grateful,” Bagwell said. “I’m able to save money, I’m able to do things that I wasn’t able to do before, all because I got the help from Katie Barrington.”

Bagwell said the only thing that was difficult for her during the process was her uncooperative landlord. But that’s where Barrington came into play. She said it’s her job to coordinate and mediate with landlords, describing herself as the tenant’s “right-hand-man.”

“There’s really no strings attached to this,” Barrington said of the program. “By the end of the day, he gets paid, she gets paid, the family stays housed and homelessness is prevented.”

As of Thursday, the RentReliefRI dashboard shows that out of the 2,495 applications filed, 1,058 have been approved. Bagwell urged anyone who’s struggling to apply as soon as possible.

“The strongest people sometimes have the most problems, but we cover it very well,” Bagwell said. “If you need help, it’s out there. Go get it.”

If there’s one thing the mainstream media hates doing it’s asking questions and/or doing a tiny bit of research. For instance, what does “being kicked out of her Pawtucket apartment amid the pandemic” mean? Did she lose her job? Because according to her she was off to work while the rest of us had to stay at home to accommodate her.

She’s an essential CNA, you’re not. Except they stopped needing her during a pandemic, and somehow she wasn’t eligible for unemployment or any of the other social welfare programs that already exist to help folks like her.

And of course her inability to work because of COVID (which was never explained) made her “fall victim to domestic violence.” Whatever that means. Questions are overrated.

The Rent Relief program that was created during the pandemic to prevent homelessness for people choosing not to work cost the taxpayers $200 million. It was basically a dinner bell for every ratchet who’s been gaming the system to finally cash in on being a lazy guttermuppet.

Anyway, she’s really upset with her landlord, who was a real jerk because he or she wanted to pay their mortgage and didn’t give a shit about the sob story of the person living in their property who wasn’t paying them rent. Luckily the non-profit funded through the government came to her rescue and her application was approved! It must’ve been rigorous since many others have not been approved. Except she’s been evicted a whole bunch of times before, in 2010, 2015, 2016, 2019, and 2020, before COVID started.

So she went and cried to this non-profit after she saw the government was giving out cash from the money tree and she used her litter of crotch fruits and sob story about domestic violence to get them to pay off the $7,2000 she owed in rent for the most recent eviction.

Problem solved!

She even got evicted from government housing.

Do you know how hard it is to get evicted from government housing in a blue state? Not hard for her, since it happened twice.

Oh, and she also was criminally charged with welfare fraud that one time she started fraudulently using food stamps.

But none of that matters to the news, because they like the story about the domestic violence victim single Mom getting taken advantage of by a greedy landlord instead.

Don’t worry though, although she couldn’t be bothered to pay her rent due to COVID making it impossible for her to work, she still has plenty of money lying around for tittoos, Hennessy, and new hairstyles every other week so she can get dolled up to go to the club.

The hat. Always the hat.

At this point if you’re not working it’s not because of the pandemic, it’s because of you. But since half of our elected officials need sob stories like this to run on they’ll just keep enabling fraud and keeping the pandemic going for as long as possible so that people can suck off the government’s titty for a little bit longer.

    The hard working people of this country are paying for her ghetto fab lifestyle.
    You know the ones that work and pay taxes.
    The ones that can’t afford wardrobes, tattoos ,wigs, Henny, shrimp appetizers, cocktails, and glam photo sessions.
    People this shit truly has to stop.
    They are taught to hustle from a very young age.
    This type of oppression of their race has to be stopped.
    We must save them from the horrid lifestyle that they are forced to live.
    The Didi Delghetto life.
    So smarten up tax payers and vote only for people that are willing to put a stop to all this.

    Its not just the silverback. The day after she moves her bedbug furniture in, her “boyfriend” starts “staying over”. Next thing you know, the parking lot is filled with $200 honda civic’s with $3000 rims, and those stupid fucking wings on the back. Then the all night parties, fights in the street, cops there every night. etc. etc. But you cant evict her….because “dat be rayciss”!

    She got evicted because of systemic racism ok? Get that through your head. Don’t you see how classy, fit, hardworking and responsible she is? It’s because of white people she’s in this predicament. We should take her (and her prostitution business, kids, baby daddies, etc) and pay her reparations! Now! In the meantime who wants to start a gofundme for her? You ppl are so-so racist. She’s a beautiful human being, she should model.

    Omg I hooked up with this beautiful chocolate woman one time!! Crazy story!
    While we were at her place going at it, she SUDDENLY screamed out “FOOK MEH IN THE AHSS HARDER!” In the deepest most Irish accent possible.
    Stunned, I paused and did what she said.
    To this day, it reminds me of the scene in “Harry Potter: Prisoner of Azkaban” when he screams in one of the final scenes “Expecto-Patronummmmmmm!!!” As he wards off all of the ghost things.

    I realize that in Pawtucket you’re not getting Rhodes Scholars applying for your apartments, but Jesus H Christ, do you even spend 60 seconds reviewing their rental history before signing a lease? These landlords who got their heads stuck up their asses deserve every ounce of misery and suffering they got coming.

      And as far as the landlord goes? We ALL KNOW that the last thing this guy gave ONE FUCK about was getting paid and just wanted this savage gone. I’m POSITIVE this fucking animal overstayed it’s fucking welcome…until this nosy fucking snowflake steps in with the #RACISM threats along with the taxpayer-funded bailout check.

    If you rent to someone without looking at their rental history – criminal record, credit score, prior evictions (evictions are public record, I can look them up on anyone for free in less than 2 minutes) then you deserve what you get.
