Because, she's a racist.

What POSSIBLE reason is there to pull a gun on children (they are under 18, they are children) that were fundraising? There is no indication of anything those children did to cause that other than.... being born black.

But the rest of the paragraphs state them as: "found the four children on the ground" and "The officer let the children stand up," and "two of the four children were wearing football jerseys."

Why the shift from "teens" to "children"?

Seems odd to me..
Teens are children.

Maybe she is a racist. Maybe she is not. I do not know what is in her heart. Neither do you. I would not react the way she did. Most normal people would not either. Again she was arrested.

Are you actually claiming that 90% of all black people are criminals? Are you insane?

There are more than 37 million black people in this country. You really think 33 million of them are criminals?

Right off the bat 6% of them are going to be under the age of 5. Another 16% are senior citizens. So if you are correct every single black person over the age of 5 up to the age of 65 are criminals and half of the senior citizens. Additionally there are over 100K black police officers in the US, for your stats to be right, they must all be criminals. Another 300K members of the military who are black would also have to be criminals.

So, maybe stop making crap up?

So call the cops. Don't attack them and hold them at gun point.

Nearly all mass shooters are white males in their 20s, should we hold all of them at gun point if they are seen in public?

Because schools suggest students travel together for their safety. If it was just a single black kid going door to door who knows if this woman would have shot him straight out.

It's an interesting problem. Of course it's racist, of course there's justification for her fears, of course it's a gross overreaction. I guess you'd have to be there to pass judgement.
Actually no, what she did was illegal, she is being charged, and you don't have to be there to pass judgement. That is a nonsense argument.

If the races had been reversed, the black woman holding the gun on the white teens would have been shot before the police had stopped the car all the way.

You don't know that. You made an ignorant statement. You have zero facts to back up anything you just said!

Please regale us with your knowledge of Arkansas and extensive travels there.
Grew up in Alabama with family in Little Rock. You couldn't pay me to live there and that is all you need to know.
