I know every law enforcement situation is unique and local, but am posting this story because this white lady (redacted name in my post) in Chattanooga, Tennessee was riding around in body armor, shot at least 7 people from her car, led the cops on a chase and pointed her gun at the police when they arrested her, yet somehow they managed to take her into custody “without incident.”
Stories like this just cloud the credibility of those who have said that law enforcement officers are left with no choice but to shoot unarmed suspects.
Wonder if they’ll say she was a “thug,” or a “crazy”?
Woman in body armor drove around Chattanooga shooting at people
by Kendi Anderson
A woman dressed in body armor fired shots at multiple people yesterday afternoon, resulting in a police chase on Hixson Pike, which ended in the woman’s arrest.
Chattanooga Police officers first responded to a report of shots fired on 1300 Cloverdale around 3:52 p.m., according to a news release from the Chattanooga Police Department.
Once the officers arrived on scene, they found two victims who said they were at a stop sign when the suspect, J**** S******, pulled up in a dark colored sedan and fired shots into their vehicle, the release said.
A short time after this incident, police received several additional calls reporting that S****** was pointing her firearm at people as she drove pass them.
It was reported that she shot at another vehicle in the same area around 1300 Cloverdale Drive, and officers eventually located her sitting in her vehicle in the Stuart Heights Baptist Church Parking lot on Hixson Pike, the release states.
S****** escaped the parking lot in her car and led officers on a chase down Highway 153 and Hixson Pike, and continued to point her firearm at vehicles as she passed them.
The chase ended at the intersection of Cloverdale Drive and Koblan Drive, as S****** pointed her firearm at an officer, before being taken into custody without incident or injury.
