Details regarding woman arrested for harassing black delivery guy..she tried to grab steering wheel

https://www.sfgate.com/crime/article/2021-04-Julie-Walrand-Berkeley-hate-crime-Amazon-16142210.php



More details emerge on Berkeley woman charged with hate crime for harassing Black delivery driver

------

Julie Walrand, 35, was arrested on April 18 following an altercation in which she allegedly shouted racist slurs at a delivery driver. She faces charges of battery, false imprisonment and assorted hate crime charges, namely using offensive words and willfully threatening a person based on their perceived characteristics.


-------

“I was just trying to do my job and she wouldn’t allow me to,” he told KRON. “She closed both double doors in the van I was trying to leave out of.”

At one point, he said, she jumped inside the Amazon truck and attempted to get control of the steering wheel at least twice.

Even though he later escaped, he said, the alleged harassment continued — and Walrand and her boyfriend began shouting the n-word and other obscenities at him.

But more than anything, he expressed gratitude to bystanders for recording the incident and ensuring his safety.

“What constantly was running through my mind was, you know, it could be me in handcuffs instead of her,” he said to KRON. “If there wasn’t a video, it wasn’t being recorded, she probably could’ve gotten away with saying this.”

2. In Berkeley! And her boyfriend was all in on it?

I would have thought it was some sort of psychotic break, except the boyfriend joined in.

Glad the driver is okay. Sorry it had to happen to him.

10. No.

There are racists in this country, just as there are racists in nearly every other country.

But we are NOT a racist country.

I grew up with racism, we used the "n-word" frequently, until I grew up.
(One of my close relatives went to his grave, never saying "black" or "African-American." They were always the n-word.)

in this country.
