Deputies: Woman beat up after asking for space at checkout
CBS Atlanta ^ | December 5, 2012 | Nikki Davidson

Posted on 12/09/2012 9:55:49 PM PST by Uncle Chip

PACOLET, SC (FOX Carolina) - Deputies said two women are accused of attacking a customer at a Li'l Cricket store in Pacolet who asked them to give her some space while checking out.

According to Spartanburg County deputies, it was all because the victim asked the women to give her some space while she entered the pin code for her debit card at the cash register.

"All I wanted was a little bit of privacy, I didn't know it would lead to a beatdown," said the victim, Amanda Parker.

On Monday afternoon Parker stopped into the Li'l Cricket on Pine Street in Pacolet, never knowing she'd need to be rushed to the hospital by the time she was through.

"The line was long, I stood and waited and those two women had been at the counter the whole time," said Parker.

Deputies said the two women had bought lottery tickets and stayed at the counter while other customers, including Parker, were being helped around them.

"I said, 'Can y'all give me some privacy? I'm fixing to use my debit card,'" said Parker. "They just got real hateful, 'Well we don't need your money.'"

Investigators said the two women were 80-year-old Mary Wannamaker and 63-year-old Myrtle Smith.

"I tried to be respectful, they were older women," said Parker. "They kept mouthing and mouthing and when I got ready to walk out the door, they spit on me."

The sheriff's office said that's when the situation escalated.

I don’t know. These women are of an age where people even turned their backs to fill out a check at the grocery store. I don’t think there mothers would be proud of this trashy action (I mean really 63 and 80.....geeez)

In ghetto culture, being “dissed”, or disrespected, is a major offense. And the response to being dissed is often violent.

There is a LOT of Bad Craziness out there. It’s scary that a 60 and an 80 year old woman could be harboring such seething hatred and viciousness that they’re prepared to beat up another woman in a public place.

The expedient action, seeing that these women were hanging out at the checkout as they were, would be to walk on through, leaving the merchandise behind, and count Li’l Cricket as history. Let them chew on it.

Something similar happened to me a couple of weeks ago. I was in a drugstore checkout line behind some youngish woman (20s) and after she’d been waited on, I stepped up to the counter to use my debit card. She remained at my elbow, for some inexplicable reason. I wanted to avoid a conflict, so managed to angle my body in such a way as to keep my purchase private.

My transaction completed, she didn’t move aside as I left the counter and made my way out the store. I guess she was waiting for the next customer.

Another reason I always sign for my purchases instead of using the PIN.

But, can't you see? The thugs, who were trying to steal her debit card password, only spit on her... and then even tried to help clean-off the spit by beating her repeatedly on the head with gallon jugs of windshield wiper fluid.

Can't you see? Again, "the police acted stupidly." And again, 'Obama's/Holder's people' are profiled as criminal even when they are being 1st victimized and then trying to help.

"wideminded?"

When I finish a transaction at the checkout, I always step out of the way of the line so that I can put my receipt in my purse and pull out my keys. I can’t ever recall someone being in my way while I pay for my purchases. Maybe I’m just lucky or my preschooler scares them enough to make them keep a distance ;)

Zero class like their messiah. Creepy. This is like horror movie characters. Old, nasty, evil zombies.

Was the trash trying to pick up whitey’s ATM code? People don’t usually crowd around people while they are using the ATM checkout machine. I would have just left the sale on the counter, told the cashier the ATM arrangement was insecure. I would have called the manager later and told him/her about the misbehavior in the store around the ATM.

No doubt the perps are simply reacting against the awful treatment they experienced when they were slaves. Oh, wait...

It just might turn out that this woman was right and an investigation might show that these two perps had done this before and were trying to get the "password" for her card as they had gotten passwords from others.
