One woman was pretty pissed off about her mail. But this time it wasn’t the mailman who threw the darts.
According to Gawker, the woman in Hingham, Massachusetts was identified as Erika Winchester, a local speech coach and graduate of the citizen police academy.
After receiving a piece of certified mail that she claimed didn’t belong to her, she went up to the Black mail carrier’s van and argued that he should take the mail back, which he claimed he could not do.
She used racial slurs, including the n-word, and slapped the postal worker.
“Now you want the signature you fucking n—– thief. You want me to lock you up for life you asshole? Give me my shit back,” Winchester yells in the video.
However, she attempts to cover herself by claiming that “I’m not prejudiced but right now I’m getting real pissed off. Because you’re acting like a n—–, now give me the cards back.”
The postal worker secretly filmed the rant on his cell phone.
According to Colorlines, Christine Dugas, a media representative for USPS, stated the following:
“The video posted on YouTube was quite disturbing. We immediately pursued this incident through the local police, which, in turn, pressed charges. Due to privacy act protections, we are not permitted to discuss employee issues.”
Watch the videos and sound off! Do you believe it was okay for this local citizen to use racial slurs?
