Black woman in Texas gets put in a chokehold by grocery store workers and held hostage over $50 [VIDEO]

Woman put in chokehold and held hostage at grocery store

A woman in Austin County, Texas went grocery shopping and her day was ruined. This is the second time, within a week, that a person almost lost their lives in a store. Betty Smith is a 65-year-old grandmother, who went grocery shopping with her special needs grandson. She ran into the store to buy ice cream for her grandchild. The only customer in the store, Ms. Smith found $50 laying on the ground. When she told the cashier, the cashier told her the money may belong to her friend. After that, mayhem ensued.

These days, so much has changed, but many things have also remained the same. While respect has gone out the window, racism continues to run rampant. In many ways, racism is just as open as it was during the 1960s and 1970s. When Betty Smith refused to let go of the $50, the employees at the store attacked her. The attacks were both verbal and physical. When it came to the verbal, they wasted no time making racist insults towards her.

Betty Smith, age 65, found $50 on the ground at an Austin County, Texas grocery store. Already having a good day, Smith was at the store to buy ice cream for her special needs grandson. When she told the cashier about the money, she demanded she put it down. The cashier said it may belong to her friend, but Smith refused to let the money go. As a result, the store employees attacked her, placing her in a chokehold, and taking the money from her. The employees were soon fired.

    Shakespeare’s classic, Much ado about nothing !. For a silly $50, these 3 attacked a poor old woman? Talk about bad judgement.

    Sadness & anger can linger but the truth has to be told. if I was in the store and anyone spoke to a mature woman that way. I would intercept the insult by reminders of 1. customer service 2. respect which isnt commonplace anymore but should be given freely without prejudice its not a gift but a courtesy in a place of business
    PERIOD……..but to demand money from the customer is agg robbery,
    9/10 of law finders keepers losers weepers
    Please give that grandma a great big hug for me
