This woman felt brave and bold enough to call the cops ON AN EIGHT YEAR OLD CHILD SELLING BOTTLED WATER IN FRONT OF HER HOME, but oh look how #PermitPatty runs and hides as soon as the camera comes out.
Racists like #PermitPatty love calling the cops on minorities because it offers a layer of insulation between themselves and having to take personal responsibility for the cops’ actions against said minorities.
These always white, almost always women know exactly what can and probably will happen when the cops show up in scenarios like this. They aren’t any more stupid or oblivious than white people who threaten to call ICE on anyone they hear speaking Spanish in public.
