A Florida anesthesiologist has been charged with a hate crime for assaulting a man outside a supermarket.
According to Miami NBC, Dr. Jennifer Susan Wright was reportedly angered by a man who asked her to follow COVID-19 regulations in Spanish while waiting in line at a supermarket. Wright ignored his request so he repeated it in English. She then responded by insults at the man with racist, bad words.
Per the the police reports, Wright then started “to stab the victim’s vehicle with her keys while saying he needed to go back to his country."
Followed by, “we should have gotten rid of you when we could. This is not going to be Biden’s America, this is my America. … We should have burned it all.”
Following the assault, Dr. Jennifer Susa Wright was arrested and charged with criminal mischief, tampering with a victim, and battery with prejudice under Florida's hate crime law.
