Skip to comments.San Francisco officials let people sue over racist 911 calls [The CAREN Act]

Fed up with white people calling 911 about people of color selling water bottles, barbecuing or otherwise going about their lives, San Francisco leaders unanimously approved hate crime legislation giving the targets of those calls the ability to sue the caller.
The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday on the Caution Against Racial and Exploitative Non-Emergencies Act, also known as the CAREN legislation. Its a nod to a popular meme using the name Karen to describe an entitled white woman whose actions stem from her privilege, such as using police to target people of color.
All 11 supervisors signed on to the legislation, guaranteeing its passage, despite criticism that the name is sexist and divisive. It comes amid a national reckoning on race sparked by the police killings of Black Americans and instances where white people called for officers to investigate people of color. [ ]
Other places have moved to make placing racist 911 calls a hate crime. Californias governor recently signed a measure making the crime a misdemeanor punishable by jail time and a fine. New York approved legislation allowing the victims of racist 911 calls to sue.

Damn. The name alone will get it passed.
Okay, so if you’re black, you just find a rich white woman out alone in her SUV, harass and stalk her till she calls 911, then sue her. Brilliant. Liberals will get sued and Conservatives will get guns.
When the Left can’t or won’t solve real world problems like the homeless invasion of their cities and streets, they will make up imaginary problems to “solve”. That’s how you get these laws.
So some black families are out in a park having a bbq being all boisterous and drinking beers, etc..an activity that any other pigmented group would do...why should I call...jeez..
So at our local casino having lunch today in the Brewery. Karen comes up to the bar and starts screaming at the bartender that the fella working in the vats doesn’t have a covid masks on. The broad’s eyeballs were popping out and spitting out sandwich...Of course Karen had no mask on. the bartender just shrugged her shoulders. I was going to approach the table of Karens to remind them to keep the mask in place in between bites. But the rest of the group was having a good time...why ruin it...
This from a city that looks the other way when it comes to public defecation.
It is a crazy place, avoid.
Why are liberals ok with this but not with suing Google?
Because they want gulags and starvation for the ills of their pigment.
