“Hey, ain’t a damn thing wrong with burning a cross in your yard, is there?” Edwards poked. “You f–ked with the wrong white people,” she continues. “N–gers should’ve never been let out of slavery,” she said at one point, according to a police report. “I hope you don’t have no kids,” she threatens in the audio. “You know what’s going to happen to you now? You don’t wanna know. You’re done.” Throughout Edwards’ rant, King remained collected and towards the end even sang along to the radio, ignoring Edwards outright. Sheriff Mike Chitwood praised King on Twitter for his “calm response to all the racist garbage this KKK Enthusiast could throw at him.”

You may have heard someone made racist threats against one of our deputies.
Before you go on a racist rant, just remember we have body cams.

According to Buzzfeed, Edwards has an arrest record, having been taken into custody twice in 2011 on several charges including resisting arrest with violence, battery on a law enforcement officer, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and a DUI. However, she is currently out in the public after she bonded out of the county jail.
Kudos to Deputy King for his calm response to all the racist garbage this KKK Enthusiast could throw at him.— Mike Chitwood (@SheriffChitwood) February 12, 2019
