Charlotte City Councilwoman LaWana Mayfield has just poured fire on a local controversy with yet another shocking tweet.

She essentially confirmed and strengthened her previous tweet which compared police officers to terrorists.

In her latest post, the councilwoman stated, “To all of you talking nonsense about my posts, forget you. A black man can’t drink in his own garage, can’t drive down the street, car can’t break down, can’t walk in a store without being killed by someone in a police uniform. So who is going work to remove the bad cops? #I will.”

Her tweet was posted just hours after dozens of police wives confronted Mayfield in a council meeting, holding signs and wore t-shirts that read, “My husband is not a terrorist. My husband is a hero”.

The public started to speak out against the Councilwoman from a controversial tweet, originally posted in March;

“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;

Her police tweet was actually 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?
