In an interview, Robinson said: "I am very upset. And I’m not going to stop being upset, because I feel like my child was assaulted and violated."

She added: "There was no hygienical reason for them to shave my child’s head. There were no head lice. There were no bed bugs. There was no what I refer to as “rasta locks” going on."
