Last year, a “white KKK member” terrorized the community of Brookmont in Douglasville, Georgia. It began with handwritten notes from a person claiming to be a 6-foot tall white man with a long red beard. But as we often see in these situations, there was never a white man. The ‘white KKK member’ was actually a black woman and the events that unfolded were another BLM hoax.
“The notes threatened to burn their houses down and kill them and said that they didn’t belong in the neighborhood,” said Detective Nathan Shumaker. The notes, filled with the n-word and threats of lynchings, seemed to target black residents. At the time, liberals screeched that President Trump and his supporters were to blame. But the police investigation found that this wasn’t the case at all. TheBlaze reports:
The Douglasville Police Department said the investigation started by detectives going “door-to-door to check doorbell cameras and gather whatever information they could from the residents.” They also handed out flyers to residents about the racially motivated threats.
The letters – which were delivered in the middle of the night – stopped in January, but picked up again in February and March.
An alarmed resident alerted local media to the story, and the letters stopped again until the final letter was delivered on Sept. 6.
Detectives Andre Futch and Shumaker determined that the letters had “similar handwriting, tone and verbiage with some distinctive letters that were consistent throughout.”
The investigation ended with an arrest — but it wasn’t a six-foot-tall white man with a red beard. Or a man at all:
On Sept. 6, law enforcement found evidence linking the terroristic letters to the home of Terresha Lucas – a 30-year-old black female. The detectives gathered enough evidence to obtain a search warrant. During the search, detectives found other evidence that tied the suspect to the threatening notes, Shumaker said.
“Our investigators had the drive to stick with this case and see it all to the end. That’s what we’re all about and this reflects the professionalism and integrity of the department,” says Police Chief Dr. Gary Sparks. “They stayed with it and put in a lot of hours. Even when some people went to the media, which could have hampered our investigation, we still stuck with it to the end.”
Lucas was charged with eight counts of making terroristic threats. While authorities have been mum on Lucas’ motivations, it’s clear that the intent was to stoke racial hatred and promote BLM’s hateful and violent actions.
