A white woman called police on a nine-year-old black boy for an alleged “sexual assault” — but onlookers said the child merely brushed up against her.
The video, posted Wednesday by Facebook user Jason “Stovetop” Littlejohn, begins with the woman standing and talking on the phone as the boy’s small sibling is heard crying for his mother, who was also present.
“The son grabbed my ass,” the white woman told the police operator. “And she decided to yell at me.”
“I just was sexually assaulted by a child,” she said moments later.
As onlookers made a commotion on the street, people began walking up to check out the scene. At one point, another white woman walked up and, in the direction of the woman on the phone, exclaimed “are you seriously calling the police?”
The man filming noted that the woman he nicknamed “Cornerstore Caroline” was calling the police because “a little kid brushed up against her and touched her on her butt.”
“Why don’t you upload that to Worldstar,” the woman said to the man filming, referencing the popular Worldstar Hip-Hop website where videos go viral.
In the video, the woman listed an address in the Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York — a largely African-American and Caribbean neighborhood in the process of gentrification. Flatbush is part of the district represented by a New York state senator who proposed a law that would make calling the police on innocent black people illegal.
At two points in the video, the woman who called the police on the child identifies herself as a “cop.”
WATCH: Trump walked out of a 1990 interview with CNN when they asked about his finances
Long before he became the president, Donald Trump was a business tycoon who had trouble holding onto his money.
As New York Times reporting on the president's personal income tax records has shown, Trump throughout his career would frequently burn through money at a stunning rate throughout the 1990s, at one point reporting adjusted gross losses of nearly $1 billion per year in 1994 and 1995.
The tax records obtained by the Times show that things really started going downhill for Trump in 1990, when he reported a gross net loss of $400 million.
GOP lawmaker in Tennessee admits to prescribing opioids to his second cousin — who was also his lover
Tennessee state Sen. Joey Hensley (R) is under investigation by a medical review board for providing opioids to family members, one of which was his second cousin -- who also happened to be his lover, the Tennessean reports.
Hensley, an anti-LGBT ideologue who wrote his state's infamous "Don't Say Gay" bill, admits that he prescribed drugs for his relatives, but says he's the only doctor in town.
“There are not many people in the county who haven’t been to see Dr. Hensley, and she was one of them,” defense attorney David Steed said, adding, “Half of the county are Hensleys. Everyone there knows everyone. There were multiple relationships and the physician-patient relationship was only one and somewhat incidental to the others.”
West Virginia voter: ‘I’ll probably vote for Donald Trump’ because ‘he keeps the people to the TV set’
A group of West Virginia voters explained their voting choices to MSNBC on Monday.
"I don't have TV, I don't have internet," one woman said. "I'm pretty far behind. And I bet you a lot of around here are because we're poor. I don't know nothing about Joe [Biden]. I ain't never heard nothing about him at all. Donald Trump, I know a little bit about him because of the past couple of years."
"I'll probably vote for Donald Trump," Jeff Kibbey told MSNBC. "He keeps the people to the TV set."
"One, Trump is good," Francis Senter insisted. "Biden -- however you pronounce his name -- is good too. But like I say, I can't judge either one of them. It's the same community it ain't never going to change because if it was going to change it wouldn't look like this right here."
