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.

President Donald Trump attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from the White House on Tuesday.

As impeachment testimony was underway in the House, Trump told reporters in a Cabinet meeting that Pelosi is "grossly incompetent."

The president also said that Republicans are "killing it" in the impeachment hearings.

But Trump took a shot at Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an expert on Ukraine who was testifying at the time.

"I don't know him. ... I never saw the man," he said. "I understand now he wears his uniform when he goes in. No, I don't know Vindman at all. What I do know is that even he said that the transcript was correct."

Donald Trump Jr. questioned the military service of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, and was sprayed with venom.

The president's eldest son posted a link to a Federalist article suggesting Vindman is not a dedicated military officer and public servant, a line of questioning which Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) also pursued during an impeachment hearing.

"Let’s Stop Pretending Every Impeachment Witness Is A Selfless Hero," Trump Jr. tweeted, quoting the piece's headline.
