HATE CRIME: Unhinged Rhode Island Woman Yells “Dumb White Girl” as She Sics Her Pitbulls on ABC6 News Reporter Abbey Niezgoda
Hate Crime and racist double standard … Hmm, I thing thins just might be a hate crime … what do you think?
An ABC 6 news crew in Providence, Rhode Island was covering a story to get a mothers reaction that the man accused of shooting his teenage daughter at a graduation part has just been arrested. The 16 year old had turned himself in. Lawrence’s daughter has been released from the hospital and is currently recovering from a gunshot wound. What happened next, defies logic or sanity. Then, the mother, Melissa Lawrence turned violent herself. Lawrence began throwing rocks at the cameraman and female reporter, Abbey Niezgoda. Then she went into the house and came out with a baseball bat and sicced her two pitbull dogs on the news crew. WTF!!! All is caught on video tape. The reporter was bit on the arm as she fled down the street to a neighbors yard.
Oh did we mention, the unhinged, insanoid woman screamed, “Get the f*** away from house you dumb white girl”. Hmm, not only is this assault, its a “HATE CRIME”. Let’s be consistent here folks. What do you think would happen if a white individual called a female reporter a dumb black girl as they sic their dogs on them? Hmm?
From ABC6 - Don’t see any mention of a hate crime, why not? , Melissa Lawrence is the one who hurled the racial slur at TV reporter Abbey Niezgoda. Obviously, Lawrence’s attack was more than just what it seems on the surface. Lawrence did not call her a dumb b*itch, a dumb MF’er, a dumb F’er or a dumb POS. She brought race into this. Once again we are witness to a double standard as if the roles were reversed, the focus would not have been on the attack, the baseball bat or the pitbulls, it would have been the racist comment. Had the rolls been reversed, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and the NAACP would have made a b-line for Providence, “no justice, no peace”. What’s the difference?
The woman who attacked the ABC6 crew has been arrested and charged with two counts of felony assault with a dangerous weapon. She is scheduled to be arraigned in Providence District Court Wednesday afternoon.
An ABC6 crew was on assignment in Providence when they were assaulted in broad daylight. It started with a question that led to a violent response. The crew was on Public Street in Providence, attempting to get reaction from the mother of the teenage girl who was shot at a graduation party over the weekend.
Instead of declining to speak on-camera, Melissa Lawrence replied “OK, that’s good,” and then suddenly hurled a rock at ABC6 photographer Marc Jackson. The rock just missed the photographer’s head. The crew then started to leave, but Lawrence came out wielding a baseball bat. She then told her two dogs to attack.
