Black Bus Driver Arrested For Threatening To ‘Shoot Up’ School To Help Trump’

Published

Trump supporters are just as unhinged and insane as the man that they follow, and the saddest part is that a small number of his supporters are black. One of his melanated supporters decided it made sense to threaten to shoot up a school in an effort to help out her boy #45.

As reported by ABC News, school bus driver Lashauna Hooker Beachum, 32, of Charlotte, North Carolina was arrested earlier this week after she threatened to “shoot up” a local middle school in an effort to help Trump with tackling immigrants and immigration. Beachum reportedly made the numerous threats via social media.

Via ABC News:

Lashauna Hooker Beachum was taken into custody after the Union County Sheriff’s Office received complaints from numerous residents that she posted the social media threat against Porter Ridge Middle School in Charlotte less than three weeks after a gunman killed 17 people at a Florida high school.

“The safety of our kids and schools is one of our highest priorities. Any comment, rumor or social media post mentioning violence on school property is unacceptable and will not be tolerated,” Union County Sheriff Eddie Cathey said in a statement.  Beachum allegedly posted threat on Facebook around 2 a.m. Friday, using a fake name, Tony Underwood, spokesman for Union County Sheriff’s Office, told ABC News. The threat was removed, but was re-posted several hours later, he said.

In the Facebook post, the writer made expletive-laced references to three people and disparaging remarks aimed at “immigrants” in the Suburban Estates neighborhood of Charlotte, where Porter Ridge Middle School is located, sheriff’s officials said. “I’m sick of this school, these … teachers and immigrants of Suburban Estates trying to take over the school,” reads one of the post, obtained by ABC affiliate station WSOC-TV before it was taken down. Apparently referring to President Donald Trump’s attempts to overhaul the immigration system, including banning immigrants from several predominantly Muslim countries, the poster went on to write: “You all won’t be satisfied until trump sends all you … back out of here. i’m going to shoot up the school to help him out.”

After a quick investigation, detectives in the case were able to trace the threatening Facebook messages to Beachum’s residence and quickly determined that she posted it. She was arrested earlier this week and was recently released on $20,000 bail.

Beachum was recently hired a school bus driver on January 3, 2018 and was reportedly in good standing at the time of the incident.

Charlotte Mayor, other African American city and county leaders receive racist, threatening letter

Published

on

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — More than a dozen city leaders, all of them African American except for one, received a letter in the mail to their respective offices that was threatening and racist. Now, police are taking a close look. 

“If I can assume the intent, the intent was to intimidate,” Councilman Braxton Winston said. 

He was one of the people who received the letter. Winston said two weeks ago he was opening mail at his office at the Government Center in uptown when he started reading a hateful message. 

“We get hate-mail all the time,” he said. “But this one was unique … It was pretty intense, pretty intense, [and] pretty well thought out.”

The letter read in part,  “…Each of you despicable BLACK democrats should be tarred and feathered and run out of town (my town) on a rail…”

“From go back to where you came from, to tarred and feathering which I take as a form of lynching,” Winston said, remembering what the letter said. 

“What I would call pretty racist, bigoted,” he added. 

The letter was also addressed to police, fire, and CMS officials. 

It blamed African Americans for various things, praised President Donald Trump and used a phrase that was chanted by his supporters at a North Carolina rally earlier this year: “Send her back” 

The letter writes, “I do believe you need to go back to where you came from if you don’t BEGIN to show this great country some RESPECT and HONOR.”

It went on to say, “leave our Confederate Memorials and statues alone” and eluded to someone “blowing up the infamous ‘adulterer’ MLK statues.”

“I’m turning my letter over to the FBI,” said Mecklenburg County Commissioner Vilma Leake, who also received a copy in the mail.
