A North Carolina woman was arrested after an unhinged road range incident was caught on video and turned over to police.

Kristin Leigh Phillips was charged with reckless driving to endanger, assault and battery, injury to personal property, driving left of center and two counts of communicating threats, the Courier-Tribune reported.

Sherri Hastings, who videotaped Saturday’s incident, is disabled and has a handicapped license plate, the New York Daily News reported. She was driving behind Phillips in Randleman when Phillips stopped her SUV, exited, rushed back to Hastings’ vehicle and began yelling.

“You goddamn f***ing following someone behind their goddamn ass, you stupid goddamn bitch!” Phillips hollered as she punched through Hastings’ partially open driver’s side window.

At that point, a child in Hastings’ vehicle — her 6-year-old granddaughter, the Daily News reported — began crying as Hastings yelled for Phillips to stop.

As Phillips walked back to her SUV, she turned, raised two middle fingers at Hastings and yelled “f*** you!”

Describing what prompted the incident on YouTube, Hastings said Phillips tried passing her twice on a two-lane road with double lines on a hill and nearly ran her off the road. She said she let Phillips pass, then called 911 and began recording with her cellphone “which was in a holder on dash board hands free.”

Hastings said she drove trucks for 15 years and “knew what was going to happen” and “wanted it on tape.”

Randolph County Sheriff’s deputies posted images from the incident on Facebook, Det. Sergeant Bernie Maness told the Daily News, which led to tips from the public. After eluding authorities for most of the day, Phillips, 40, turned herself in Monday night and was released after posting bail, the Daily News reported.

“This is a grandmother with a handicapped sign and child in the car,” Maness told the Daily News. “We don’t do that here.”

Here’s the clip — Phillips exits her SUV to confront Hastings just after the 3-minute mark (content warning: profanity ahead):




Father of slain Santa Barbara student calls on politicians to ‘get to work and do something’ about guns after Elliot Rodger rampage that killed 6 near university

This is from The Daily News.

Mr. Martinez is full of crap politicians have done way too much.

What needs to be done is enforce the law, but we have an Attorney General that runs guns to Mexican Drug Cartels.

So fixing  the system and enforcing current laws is out of the question. Sigh.

Stomping your foot does help in ridding you home of vermin, or your two years old craving attention. 



A furious Richard Martinez delivered a four-letter stomping to do-nothing politicians who have called him to cry crocodile tears over his son’s brutal killing.

“I don’t give a s— that you feel sorry for me,” a weeping Martinez said about the congressional condolence calls that followed last Friday’s murder spree by a hate-filled gunman in Southern California.


Get to work and do something . . . Getting a call from a politician doesn’t impress me,” he told the Washington Post.


Martinez spoke four days after his son Christopher Michaels-Martinez and five other victims were slain in a crazed rampage by misogynist killer Elliot Rodger.

The murderer then took his own life in the nation’s latest spasm of gun violence.


“I’m going to ask every person I can find to send a postcard to every politician they can think of with three words on it: ‘Not one more,’ ” Martinez said, adding that he’d deliver the same pointed message to President Obama.


Martinez was among thousands of mourners attending a vigil late Tuesday at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he led the foot-stomping crowd in a chant of “Not one more.”


“They (politicians) have done nothing and that’s why Chris died in my opinion,” Martinez said. “It’s almost become a normal thing for us to accept this,” he said, of mass-killings. “It’s not normal life doesn’t have to be like this.”


He also read statements from the families of Rodger’s first two victims: roommates Cheng Yuan Hong and Weihan Wang, both 20.


“May we together create a peaceful world and let hatred be gone with the wind,” the Hong family statement said.


“Your sacrifice will wake the power and authority of America. It’s time to stop the gun violence. Our children deserve a land free from fear,” the Wang family said in an open letter to their slain son David.


Christopher Michaels-Martinez, the last of Rodger’s six murder victims, was shot to death inside a deli. A cell phone video from inside the IV Deli Mart captured the terror and chaos as the bullets flew.


The mourning dad’s harsh indictment of Congress was quickly hailed Tuesday by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.


“He got it exactly right,” said Dan Gross, president of the group. “Americans are dying every day because of the corporate gun lobby and the politicians it has in its pockets.”


UCSB mourned as a close friend of the murderer’s parents told the Daily News that the couple was “crippled with grief” — both for their son and his victims.
