Sprint gives black woman’s phone number to racist harasser who sends her violent threats

Published

Sprint accidentally gave a black woman’s phone number to a racist harasser who sent her violent threats, reports the Kansas City Star.

Almitra Buzan and her husband, Robert, had visited a Sprint store in Lee’s Summit, Missouri because the wifi wasn’t working properly.

After the couple left, a white man who workers described as “unsavory” came to have a specific number applied to his phone.

The store’s technician accidentally gave Almitra Buzan’s phone number to the man.

The man responded by sending a torrent of violent racist threats.

“Tell Rob I said to suck a dead N*gger’s d*ck,” read one message.

“Well f*ck that little c*nt Jenni I’ll make sure I whoop her little a** real good ok granny? Will that make you feel better?” read another.

Even more disturbing for Buzan was the fact that the violent racist threats were appearing to come from her phone.

“How’s this coming from my phone? My phone’s in my hand,” she told a local TV station.

In response, a customer support representative offered them a credit for the three hours Almitra’s phone was out of service because the man had her number. A supervisor didn’t even say they were sorry, she said. Ultimately, they received a “best and final offer” of a $532 credit.

Spring has not said what they have done to the man who sent the harassing texts or discussed what precautions were taken to protect the information he may have been able to get off her phone.

Don Lemon notes the GOP panic after their own witnesses gave testimony harming Trump: ‘Worried much?’

Published

CNN anchor Don Lemon explained how witnesses called by Republicans in the impeachment inquiry destoryed the defenses employed by President Donald Trump and his allies.

"Now, let's just be honest, the shakedown -- that's exactly what it is -- the shakedown is exposed, people," Lemon said.

"And the evidence comes from the Republican's own witnesses," he noted. "The former envoy to Ukraine, Kurt Volker -- who resigned just one day after the release of the whistleblower's report -- telling the president's defenders exactly what they did not want to hear."

"They called him apparently expecting him to say what he said in his closed-door testimony, that he saw no evidence of a quid pro quo, or let's call it for what it is again -- a shakedown," he continued. "Well, now he says he was wrong."

Every person who testified before Congress has said that Trump's obsession with Joe Biden was concerning enough to alert others. Even National Security Council aide Tim Morrison stressed that he didn’t believe there was anything inappropriate about the call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. But when Rep. Val Demmings (D-FL) asked him why then he felt the need to report it if there was nothing wrong, Morrison struggled to find an answer.
