Suspected drunk driver tells police she's a 'clean, thoroughbred, white girl’

Okay, discussions about "white privilege" and what that is or is not (or even if it's a thing) have been going on for a while now, and ATS is not immune--but what happens when you buy into the idea that it's actually a real thing? Well, apparently you make an ass out of yourself.

Enter birthday girl and real estate agent Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw:

A woman seen speeding through a stop sign at 60 mph told officers they shouldn’t arrest her because she’s a “very clean, thoroughbred, white girl,” police said.

Her eyes glossy and bloodshot, Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw was slurring her words and a breathalyzer showed her blood-alcohol level at .18 percent, according to police in Bluffton, South Carolina.

But Cutshaw, 32, told the arresting officer she shouldn’t be jailed because she was a cheerleader, a dancer and a sorority girl who graduated from a “high accredited university.”

source

I mean, she gets an "A" for effort (and maybe "Aryan"), for sure. I mean, if you're going to play the white-privilege card, you might as well go all out, amirite?

“I asked what that had to do with anything?” wrote the officer, who also is white.

She replied, “You’re a cop, you should know what that means,” and, “You’re a cop, you should know based on the people that come in this room.”

I guess Mr. Ociffer isn't part of the privilege club yet, or else he should have known what that meant. Silly cop who is actually doing his job--get with the program, would ya?!

Anyhoo, so what did her assumed white privilege get her?

Cutshaw was jailed on charges including drunken driving, speeding and marijuana possession, based in part on her own statements.

Maybe we white folks can only flash that privilege card discreetly, or else it doesn't work? I don't know.

Here's a thought, though--just because a group of people say something is real, don't buy into it, and certainly don't try to use it as a defense to get out of drunk driving.

Internet shrug.

 


Mods, if this is not the proper forum, please move--it's the best spot that I could come up with considering the topic of "white privilege."

So I guess this shows that there is no white privilege?

Only during the sentencing.
You still gotta get arrested to receive probation.

Looks to me like the drunk was trying to use her Culture privilege, which definitely does exist.

Huh? Didn’t she get arrested?

I think she tried everything she could to get out of it. Who could blame her? Everyone tries to talk their way out of trouble. It’s more like she was acting childish. Do you think pretty black girls might try the same thing?

In this case, it didn’t work. So, I don’t get where the story is? She got arrested. Did she receive some kind of special treatment?

This [eta: story] is just playing the race card, and if one can go by the news lately both races are guilty of it. Not sure why we give these sorts of stories times this day in age if not to perpetuate the division.

There is women privilege.

Women are more likely to get out of speeding tickets than men.

AND.

What the hell is a clean,thoroughbred white girl even mean?

She's fast in the biblical sense?

Let me guess... The marketing groups paid by the DNC will create several highly publicized police shootings and what appears to be racist events until after the election and then radio silence until the next election cycle?

What's the name of the marketing firm they did this with last time?

I agree. She tried to use her feminine wiles on the officer.

I think it means she was DTF to get out of the ticket. That never works for me.

That's not the correct way to get out of a moving violation.

The officer says in the story


Making statements such as these as a means to justify not being arrested are unusual in my experience as a law enforcement officer and I believe further demonstrate the suspect’s level of intoxication,” the officer wrote.


If anything, it seems this girl has been watching CNN a little too much. She has heard so much about this white privilege thing, she thought she’d give it a shot.

Oh, the HORROR!!! I weep for the future.

Sadly, this is a common tactic among us evil white folk.

Thank God those officers were smart enough to see right through her despicable charade!

Those guys aren't just cops, they're SUPERCOPS!!!.
