White woman tells black cop he’ll get a visit from the KKK after he busts her for drunk driving

Published

A white woman in Florida last week allegedly told a black police officer that the KKK would visit his house and burn crosses on his lawn after he confronted her on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

Local news station WFTV reports that police officers last week were asked to respond to a late-night disturbance around South Montgomery Street in Deland, Florida.

When they arrived on the scene, they found a 53-year-old woman named Julie Edwards driving her car in reverse. Upon approaching the car, the officers detected a strong odor of alcohol.

Edwards refused to submit to a breath test, at which point the officers handcuffed her. She then flopped to the ground and refused to get back up when the officers commanded her to stand.

While a black deputy was filling out paperwork, Edwards told him that the “Ku Klux Klan would be seeing him and burning crosses on his property,” according to WFTV. She also used a racial slur to describe the officer.

She was subsequently arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, prior refusal to submit to testing, threat against an officer, and resisting an officer without violence.

According to Axios, three out of the nine coal companies in the Powder River Basin in northeastern Wyoming have filed for bankruptcy and another two companies are consolidating. Kentucky coal miners have been protesting Blackjewl, which filed for bankruptcy in July, withdrawing payroll dollars from miners' accounts. Little has been heard about the Wyoming workers as those companies crumble, however.

Cities across the United States are already seeing the impacts of climate change. Sea levels are on the rise in Miami, Florida, where ocean waters creep into the streets, even when it isn't raining. Massive wildfires have taken out whole neighborhoods in California and in Alaska, about 2.5 million acres have burned since July 3. Wildfires there are getting worse, according to experts.

The problem of climate change has reached a dangerous level for some homeowners in areas that are no longer insurable. In Miami, for example, the "street-level" is now considered the basement and insurers are dropping coverage for basements. According to the Daily Beast, at least 340,000 California homeowners lost their property insurance coverage between 2015 and 2018 because the wildfires are getting worse and companies don't want to pay out when homes are destroyed.
