What the fuck is wrong with these people?
Police in Douglasville, Georgia, were investigating an incident that occurred Saturday where a group of trucks, each bearing Confederate flags, drove by the birthday party of a black child. The trucks’ passengers were reportedly armed and using racial epithets, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. The encounter was recorded in at least two cell phone videos.
The Douglasville Police Department said in a statement to the Atlanta Journal Constitution that it had been alerted to the trucks and that its officers initially followed them but eventually stopped. Later, the police were called to an area where an argument between members of the convoy and people from the birthday party had grown heated. Police said it was examining the video footage for possible criminal activity.
“This is a child’s birthday party,” a female voice can be heard calling in the footage as the trucks rolled by. Another female voice cried, “That is a threat!” One woman appeared to be furious, screaming unintelligibly and stomping her feet at one point.
The video showed at least four trucks, each bearing multiple Confederate flags and American flags. Much of the audio is unclear, but in one of the videos, the N-word is audible, and one woman said that the passengers had threatened to “kill y’all [N-word],” the Atlanta paper reported.
