You have no idea who I am, marie999 Jul 2020 #54
You're right. I don't StarfishSaver Jul 2020 #56

Got a good look at her face, so that should help ID her. Happy Hoosier Jul 2020 #2
Said she was arrested and released Ferrets are Cool Jul 2020 #4
Evidently the sheriff is running for reelection and doesn't want to offend white people dalton99a Jul 2020 #7
Exactly. Released - did they release her on bail? What charges were filed, if any? onetexan Jul 2020 #24

Straw Man, I think your posts make a lot of sense. MisterNiceKitty Jul 2020 #60
If the black woman had been armed Bettie Jul 2020 #70
I think that depends on the jurisdiction. Straw Man Jul 2020 #97
Because "not all jurisdictions," right? StarfishSaver Jul 2020 #102
Nonsense! artemisia1 Jul 2020 #52
Since you're online "advising" people you don't know and likely will never read what you wrote StarfishSaver Jul 2020 #55

It should be. The law is on the books. Straw Man Jul 2020 #29
Wonder what led up to her pulling the gun. She already has it out when video starts Takket Jul 2020 #14
It sounds like she was backing up and unaware that the Black woman and her family were behind her gollygee Jul 2020 #15
Thanks! Takket Jul 2020 #17
There's a longer video taken by the woman's daughter tishaLA Jul 2020 #16
I wonder if the woman had just apologized Takket Jul 2020 #18
Who do you think should have apologized? StarfishSaver Jul 2020 #26
