Woman Gets $385 Ticket For Talking Too Loud Says She Was Targeted Because She Is Black
A woman in Michigan was given a massive ticket for allegedly talking too loudly.
Diamond Robinson claimed she was walking while talking on the phone outside of her home near downtown Detroit when a female neighbor asked her if she could “talk lower."
Robinson reportedly told the other woman to “‘get out of my face” and continued walking past her. "Three minutes later, Eastpointe police pulls u..."
After police arrived on the scene, Robinson started broadcasting with Facebook Live. “I hope you know this is all being recorded,” Robinson said in the video. “I’m not doing anything wrong by walking up and down the street talking on my phone.”
When Robinson was asked why she was recording, Robinson replied “things are being pushed under the rug and they don’t need to.” Robinson alleged that she was targeted for the hefty fine because she is black.
While Robinson recorded, police gave her a ticket for $385.
Robinson says in the video, “I get a ticket for being a public nuisance because I’m talking too loud on my phone. That’s why I got a ticket?”
The female neighbor recently moved into the neighborhood. She told FOX 2 Detroit the ticket “speaks for itself.”
