I don’t think we, as White Americans, should be held responsible for the stupidity of non-white people. And I’m not alone. This headline, “NYC woman who plowed into 50 BLM protestors in 2020 rejects plea deal for second time“, was published on Wednesday, November 30th., by the newsource meaww.com.
MANHATTAN, NEW YORK CITY: Kathleen Casillo, who was accused of driving into 50 Black Lives Matter protestors at the Manhattan intersection of 39th Street and Third Avenue on December 11, 2020, rejected a plea deal for the second time on Tuesday, November 29. She appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court where she was offered six days of community service and one-year license suspension but she instead opted to go for a trial.
According to DailyMail, Casillo, 54, who attended the first proceeding on December 1, 2021, could face seven years in prison after rejecting the deal. As stated by NY Post, Casillo was driving her black BMW sedan with her then 29-year-old daughter in the passenger seat on December 11 when they encountered a BLM protest against the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement detentions in Midtown. Video showed Casillo with protesters in front of her car before she accelerated the car and plowed through a group of 50 protesters. Injured protestors were taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment. Nine protesters were wounded in the incident.
In defense, Casillo said that the protesters approached her BMW and called her a “white priviige b***h” and started hitting her car. Following which, she was released just hours after her arrest and was issued a desk appearance ticket for the incident, as previously stated. Then on February 22, 2021, she was charged with reckless assault in the third degree.
Thomas Robb, National Director of the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan, based in Harrison, Arkansas said, “Ms. Casillo should be commended for her bravery. One of the first things I taught my children, back when America was safe enough to let children outside to play, was don’t go out into the road, you could get run over! When you have 50 adult, non-white rioters out blocking traffic, and attacking innocent motorists, this is what happens. No White man, woman, or child should be held accountable for what happens to low IQ non-white rioters in situations such as this. I hope justice is served, and Ms. Castillo not charged for anything. She was protecting herself and her family. That’s not criminal.”
