Charlotte Council Woman Lawana Mayfield Compares Police To Terrorists in Tweet

791

Charlotte City Councilwoman Lawana Mayfield is in hot water once again from a controversial tweet – this time it was about police officers.

She originally posted it in March but it’s just now starting to get attention due to National Police Week.

“Being black in America under number 45 has created homegrown terrorist wearing blue uniforms,” she stated in her post;

After people began commenting on the tweet, she defended herself on the social media platform;

This is now the second major tweet controversy from the councilwoman.

Last month, she shared an article about a conspiracy theory and questioned the 9/11 terrorist attack.

The tweet was soon deleted, but not before a petition was created, calling for her resignation.

According to the petition;

“This theory was completely and thoroughly debunked in a 2017 study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. It conclusively proved what most of the nation saw that day–the towers collapsed due to the massive damage from the impact of two large jumbo jets.

By giving her imprimatur to this conspiracy theory, Mayfield has brought shame and disgrace upon herself, her district, her city, and her state. It is simply not acceptable for an elected official to use his or her platform to promote such claptrap.”

What do you think about her tweets?
