A South Carolina woman accused a cop of racism with a Facebook Live video on April 27. A Virginia cop pulled Dawn Hilton-Williams over for speeding because he’s racist, of course. She went on a tearful rant that went viral. Hilton-Williams compared her incident to a lynching. She mentioned Sandra Black, a black woman who killed herself in jail after a routine traffic stop. She put together a heck of a story. Now, out comes the body cam footage, blowing up her whole narrative.
“I was just bullied by a racist cop,” Hilton-Williams said in the emotional 11-minute video. “This is where we got lynched. This is where we got lynched, even in today’s day.”
Check out the tear-jerking video:
And then here is the body cam footage.
Woman accused cop of racism, here’s the body cam footage:
Here is a partial transcript of the interaction between the police officer and Dawn Hinton-Williams, per CBS6:
Deputy: Alright ma’am, what I have here for you is a traffic summons for Brunswick County General…
Hilton-Williams: It’s a traffic summons.
Deputy: Yes, for Brunswick County General District traffic court. Your court date is going to be June the 6th at 10:30 for a 70 in a 55 mile per hour zone.
Hilton-Williams: Where is the sign that says it’s 55 mile per hour?
Deputy: Numerous places.
Hilton-Williams: Numerous places where? I mean between the gas station I just came from and right here?
Deputy: I mean numerous numerous places back that way. You are more than welcome to go back there and look at them, take pictures of them or whatever you want to do.
Hilton-Williams: So you didn’t give me a warning? You gave me an actual ticket?
Deputy: No warnings today ma’am.
Deputy: So your court date will be June the 6th at 10:30 for speeding 70 in a 55. You have the option to prepay this. I’m going to give you a phone number, plus a website that has our courthouse information. If you contact our courts they will tell you what the fine is, answer any one of your questions and if you decide to prepay it, you do not have to come to court.
Hilton-Williams: I will not be paying this ticket.
Deputy: If you don’t want to prepay it, you’ll have to come to court on June 6th at 10:30.
Hilton-Williams: I’ll hire an attorney.
Deputy: I need you to sign right here.
Hilton-Williams: I’m not going to sign that ticket.
Deputy: Uhh ma’am, okay.
Hilton-Williams: I don’t have to sign it.
Deputy: So ma’am.
Hilton-Williams: But I appreciate it.
Deputy: Hold on… So, what you are signing here is a promise to either come to court or promise to prepay. It is not an admission of guilt. It’s only a promise to me that you’re going to get it taken care of by either coming to court or prepaying it. If you refuse to sign the summons at this point, I’m gonna have to get you out of the side of the police car, place you under arrest and take you in front of a magistrate. I will get your vehicle towed and go from there. So, yes ma’am you do not have a choice…
Hilton-Williams: My cousin is on the phone.
Deputy: I don’t care about that. I don’t care who’s on the phone. I’m talking to you right now. You do not have a choice but to sign summons. See thank you. I knew you was gonna sign it. I appreciate it very much and you have a safe day. Okay, thank you.
That darn body cam footage has exposed so many. Remember Michael Bennett? His story was so much better before the video actually revealed what happened.
