White women acting and turning to the officer to do their dirty work seems to be a whole genre of video now, so I have to ask: Why aren’t any of these white women watching them? Do they not know this is happening? How? You’d think after seeing behavior modeled for you again and again, plus the potential social media consequences, you’d adjust your behavior.
This video was posted to an Instagram page titled Karens Gone Wild, according to Raw Story. (See, there’s even a whole page JUST for these videos!) Anyway.
In the clip, a woman in a parking lot of a supermarket says she’s calling the officer, claiming she’s afraid of the Latinx man with whom she just had a minor fender bender. He’s asking for her insurance. (Are you starting to put things together?)
This scene supposedly was filmed in Santa Barbara, California, which may be one of the epicenters of Karen activity. The man filming says he just asked for the woman’s insurance because she dinged his side-view mirror with her car.” “I do want to give you the insurance I just gotta call 911 first,” the woman says then yells, “I’m afraid of you!”
Later in the video, she admits that she doesn’t have her proof of insurance with her. As the Instagram account points out in the caption, she’s some laws: “Under California Vehicle Code Section 16029, it is illegal to drive a vehicle without EVIDENCE of financial responsibility. Typically, this is referred to as driving without insurance. This forms of financial responsibility MUST be carried with you in your vehicle at all times.
In most cases, drivers carry a company-issued insurance card or paper that includes the driver’s name and information, and the insurance company’s name, address, policy number, and dates of coverage.” For some people, there might be some amusement to be found in this Karens acting so outrageously and stupidly to defend their ridiculous entitlement. It’s not. Every time I see one of these videos, I’m just grateful that we have the technology to catch this roughness for future evidence.
