Two white Alabama women face charges of ‘disorderly conduct’ for threatening to ‘shoot an N at Walmart’

Two 20-year-old Southern women were arrested in connection with a video posted on social media threatening to kill black people at a local shop. Both women were charged with disorderly conduct after a well-known civil rights organization reported the incident to law enforcement.

On Thursday, June 23, the Tuscaloosa County Branch of the NAACP released a statement notifying the public of a video posted a day earlier by a white Shelton State Community College nursing student. In the clip, the young woman threatened to “shoot an N-word at Walmart,” prompting the organization to file a request with the Tuscaloosa Police Department to investigate the “domestic terrorist statement.”

The organization also contacted the school administration and, prior to their intervention, learned that both the school and the police were working together to address the problem.

In a statement on the investigation, SSC stated, “The College is fully involved in law enforcement investigations and is committed to upholding its institutional values ​​of integrity, accountability, respect and responsiveness.”

At the end of the day, Sydney Angela Holder was arrested and charged for her post and committed to the Tuscaloosa County Jail. The next day, June 24, another white woman, Emily Elizabeth Cornett, was arrested and charged with the same video.

Making a terrorist threat by promising “to use violence against any person or damage property through the use of a bomb, explosive device, weapon of mass destruction, firearm, lethal weapon, or other mechanism” is a Class C felony No Alabama.

Many believe these young women got off easy. One person told the NAACP on Facebook, “A charge of disorderly conduct, I think it’s a lowball charge.”

Adding: “And her [Holder] probably keeps their weapon(s) as well. To carry out her threat another day.”

Holder and Cornett were both issued $500 bonds and released.

It’s clear that Holder was the main actor in the video and made the heinous threat and drew her gun, but the reports don’t specify Cornet’s role in the video.

Lisa Young, president of the Tuscaloosa County branch of the NAACP, said the reason she contacted law enforcement and the school was out of concern for students that Holder could harm — with the mass shooting at Buffalo Tops Market Threats are not to be taken lightly.

According to the WBRC, she said: “We live in a country where we have had over 50 incidents of gun violence and mass shootings in the past 30 days. And people walk around terrorized.”

“You feel so terrorized, I actually viewed it as a domestic terrorist threat.”
