‘Golfcart Gail’ Calls Cops On Black Man Cheering For His Son At Soccer Game
Did you realize that anyone can pick up the phone and call the police for any reason at any time? And the police have to take the call seriously and investigate. I think there should be repercussions for this type of behavior and I strongly feel that 'Golfcart Gail' fits the bill.
The man in question is a young, black father watching his son play soccer at a game in Florida. The ref made a bad call and this father could see his son was losing it out on the field so he yelled out TO HIS SON, "The ref is always right. The ref is always right." It's a lesson this father's been teaching his son for a while. Whatever happens out there, you respect the referee and move forward.
That's when a lady who we now know was technically the field marshal approaches the man saying he was acting irrational and needed to stop. According to NBC News, the man explained that he was only encouraging and that his comments of encouragement weren't even directed towards the referee. They were directed towards his son. The lady known as 'Golfcart Gail' then proceeded to call 911. The father started to leave so that he would not cause a disturbance BUT 'Golfcart Gail' wasn't having it. She said she didn't feel safe and was getting the cops there asap.
Of course, there were many other soccer parents there who had to witness this act of racism and abuse. They all saw exactly what happened. Some took pictures and videos as it all unfolded. Each of these parents stating that this father had done nothing wrong and 'Golfcart Gail' was completely out of line.
Two St. Johns County deputies arrived and quickly came to the decision of not detaining the father because there was no proof of him acting in a threatening manner or breaking the law. You can watch the video below and make your own judgments but for me, people like 'Golfcart Gail' are embarrassing and a disgrace.
