Racist woman who called cops on black 8-year-old selling water just got what she deserves

Remember #PermitPatty, the white woman who called the police on an 8-year-old girl selling water from her front porch to raise money for a trip to Disneyland?

Alison Ettel is reportedly second-guessing the way she handled the situation, claiming she wishes she had just “taken a walk” instead of calling the police on a child.

Well, Permit Patty will certainly be walking today – right to the unemployment line. The Bay Area’s KRON reported that Ettel has also abandoned her position at her cannabis business, Treatwell Health, in the wake of the controversy.

The company released the following statement on the matter:

“Allison Ettel, CEO of Treatwell Health, has resigned, effective immediately. This decision, while not an easy one, is in the best interest of their patients.”

The decision seems to be partially financially driven, as The Root reported earlier on Tuesday that as many as six business had cut ties with Treatwell in the wake of the controversy, which company spokesperson Cynthia Gonzalez called “a terrible mistake was made that affected a young girl and her family.”

The company insists that Ettel’s actions weren’t racially motivated. While that can never be proven, she still called the cops on a young girl selling water. If lemonade stands were grounds for arrest, Dennis the Menace would be serving a life sentence in juvi.

As a refresher, Ettel was caught on video while reporting the criminal conduct. She apparently felt so threatened by this obviously menacing 8-year-old girl “illegally selling water without a permit” that she had to call the police to get involved.

This encounter does bring up one question – where was this woman when Nestle swooped in to California and stole water from the drought-ridden state only to sell it back in overpriced bottles?

Journalist Shaun King got a hold of the video taken by the mother of the budding young water entrepreneur and posted it to Twitter to ensure that the latest entry into the viral racist Hall of Fame could be seen by everyone who wanted to witness another uptight white woman enforce her own brand of street justice.

Perhaps we should be offering compassion to people whose lives are so empty that they have to fill them up by becoming self-appointed lifestyle vigilantes.

From one white person to any other white people who might stumble across this story – stop calling the cops on black people for inexplicable reasons. Before we extend civility to the racists undermining democracy, let’s maybe extend it to those who need it most.
