How do these Karens not see the writing on the wall that they will become infamous?
This one has a government job (Chief, Toxics Compliance Section, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency), so perhaps she feels protected, particularly in the final days of Trump ...
Susan G. Schultz, a white woman, was caught on video harassing her Black neighbors for building a patio with a permit, which they say was the culmination of two years of harassment.
She was filmed threatening to call the cops on her neighbors (and following through), and likely fabricating that the husband put his hands on her, an assertion nobody on the scene supports.
The cops want nothing to do with this Karen!
Susan Schulz of Montclair, New Jersey, simply couldn't handle her Black neighbors, Fareed Nassor Hayat and Norrinda Hayat, building a patio, she says without a proper permit, so she took it upon herself to storm over to their property, engage them and call the cops.
This happened Monday, and by Tuesday, there was a community-led protest against her unwise and petty actions.
The Hayats said:
Susan, aka "Permit Karen,” came onto our property three times within thirty minutes to demand to know if we had the proper permit to install a stone patio in our backyard, on the other side of the fence of her yard. When asked if a permit was required by law, she said she didn’t know, but insisted we answer her questions and submit to her demands, or she would call the police to force us to stop improving our home. (A permit is not required in Montclair for a stone patio this size).
Hayat's correct, of course, that no permit is needed, but just like a self-appointed cop, Permit Karen didn't need to know that before calling the actual cops on them.
White women behaving this way in this climate share a lot in common with the cops who continue to be abusive on video in this climate — there is a fundamental lack of shame and a fundamental belief in one's right to rule the roost.
