The Ku Klux Klan (KKK) was first founded in 1865 and wore their signature pointy white robes to preface their racist goals. Now, imagine someone doing something like that with the same attire… it’s stupid and outdated. However, one Florida woman does not seem to think so as she claims to have some “KKK friends” and even threatened a black police officer with them.
The Florida woman in question was Julie Edwards, 53 years old. Edwards apparently had drunk little too much alcohol. She was poised to leave a house in her black Lexus when Volusia County Sheriff’s Office deputy Brandon King went in to check on her after a disturbance call.
King alleged that he immediately could smell alcohol in Edwards’ breath and she was slurring. So he asked her to perform a breathalyzer and sobriety test. However, Edwards refused and even walked away from King. So the police officer handcuffed the Florida woman and took him in his cruiser. There, Edwards threatened King as he was busy with paperwork:
As @SheriffChitwood put it: “Watch this if you need any more proof there’s no expiration date on ignorance.”
You may have heard someone made racist threats against one of our deputies.
Before you go on a racist rant, just remember we have body cams.

“My KKK people will [find you]. They know people like you… [your] eyes will be poked out… KKK got your ass, boy… Niggers should’ve never been let out of slavery… My KKK friends will burn your family. You should never be here in the first place. You ever been whipped on a whipping post?” Edwards drunkenly fumed.
Despite the drunken tirade and threats from Edwards, King remained professional with his response and took the Florida woman to jail. Edwards has been charged with making threats against a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer without violence, driving under the influence, and prior refusal to submit to testing.
