I kill white people like you”
If a white person had threatened “I kill black people like you” in a passenger plane, which led to the plane discontinuing its flight, it would be all over the alphabet TV news.
But since it’s a black who menacingly said “I kill white people like you” to a white woman, this news appeared only on The Smoking Gun and an embedded link on Drudge Report.
The Smoking Gun reports that on June 1, 2014, as United Airlines flight 4205 was taking off from Nashville, 43-year-old Lashonda Lee Williams was yakking on her cell phone.
K. Colleen Coult, 50, who was sitting next to Williams, asked her to “turn off her cell phonedue to the aircraft being in flight,” according to a court affidavit.
In reply, Williams allegedly said “I kill white people like you,” and further threatened Coult by saying she would follow Coult upon reaching Houston “and find out where she lived.” The comments “created fear in Coult for her safety,” the affidavit notes.
A United flight attendant told police that Williams’s statements “were causing anxiety and fear throughout the cabin,” which resulted in the plane returning to Nashville’s airport, where police arrested Williams for assault.
After being booked into the Davidson County jail, Williams, a Houston resident, was released on $3000 bond. She is scheduled for a June 25 County Court appearance.
