        US drink-drive suspect tells police she's 'clean, white girl'

        A US woman arrested after speeding through a stop sign asked police to let her off because she is "a clean, thoroughbred white girl", officers say.

        The arresting officer, who is white, detailed in his official report how Lauren Cutshaw, 32, appealed to him for special treatment based on her race.

        When asked why, Ms Cutshaw replied: "You're a cop; you should know what that means," the report states.
        wanna bet she's also a Trump supporter?

        • Perhaps that is another conspiracy theory spread by QAnon, that Donnie brought all white cops under white supremacist control and that therefore, if you are a white person getting arrested by white cops, you just have to mention your whiteness in order to get free

          • Because it fits the topic (american women on the somewhat dumber side of the intelligence spectrum):
            https://abcnews.go.com/International...ry?id=56520639

            An american tourist (60 yers old lady) went on Vacation to Austria. During their hiking tours she found an unused WW2 75mm grenade somewhere in the woods.
            What did she do?
            Well, of course she brought it "home" to her hotel room and cleaned it thoroughly (so that it wouldn't soil her luggage) ... and when it was time for her voyage home, she went to the customs counter of vienna airport, opened her bag adn asked if she could take her "little souvenir" with her in the plane

            Needless to say that the airport hall was immediately evacuated and a bomb disposal squad had to come and determine that the bomb was a dud ... and that the lady faces a several k Euro fine

            • I wonder if something like that has any historical significance?

                    I would like to note that judges tend to be harder on the side which has a stronger case. This helps upon the inevitable appeal, in that it gives the judge plenty of examples where he or she did not play favorites with the winning side.

                    This morning, it was so obvious the judge apologized in front of the jury:

                      I am afraid most people are ****ing idiots about UXO. I used to pass out posters showing pictures of unexploded ordnance witg local language warnings to not touch them or pick them up but people usually would and some of them would go boom. Hell, even our translater, who had spe t months hansing these posters and warning carss out stupidly picked up a clusterbomblet.

                      People in general tend to be stupid.

                        About as much as an 75mm AP round from a M4 Sherman tank......Technically yes but, they were produced in such large numbers that i'm sure there are no shortage of Museum quality ones..

                        • Yep ... would have been different if she had found a StG-44 (Sturmgewehr 44 practically the worlds first assault rifle)

                          Still not really historically significant to find one ... but they are very rare and sought after by weapons collectors nowadays and therefore would fetch you a very good price
                          (they were somewhat common at the end of the war, but AFAIK most of them were recycled for their metal in the years thereafter ... so only few of them nowadays remain ... although it is claimed that some of them actually still are used in militias all around the world)

                            That doesn't shock me.

                              • Ben Shapiro has been accused of some sort of woman abuse for offering the new sweetheart of the dems 10k to debate him. And we know all these allegations are true.
