Torrington Police Department

White privilege on fleek.

Elaine Rothenberg, 66, thought it was a good idea to point a gun at cops and yell, “Boom, boom, boom”. But lucky for her she wasn’t a little black boy playing with a gun at a playground. Because she lived to tell the tale…well from behind bars.

The woman was in Connecticut and was arrested after waving the BB gun outside the police department in Torrington.

According to report, she first posted the gun at two civilians and asked if they were cops. After they ran away, Rothernberg started shouting about how much she hated cops and yelled, “Boom boom boom!” and then, “What are you doing? Shoot me! What are you, scared?”

Rothernberg was charged with first-degree threatening (a felony), interfering with an officer and reckless endangerment, both misdemeanors.

Oh to be white and crazed and waving a gun. You live to tell the tale.
