Video & Incident
When she left the store, the white woman stood behind Montgomery-Strickland’s car with a child in a buggy and refused to move.
“This needs to be known. You can’t just stay hush about everything and keep on letting people get away with nonsense,” the mother of three told Fox2Detroit.
The woman, whose name is unknown, reacted when Montgomery-Strickland’s stood on the shelf.
“She said, ‘Ohmygod, they went up to get they Gatorade and I’m trying to shop here.’ It was irateness,” Montgomery-Strickland continued.
“I told her please don’t yell at them and then she started yelling at me. And I said, ‘You don’t have to yell at me, they got the Gatorade.’
“And a lot of people where, if you’re short you’re going to go up there and grab what you need. There’s not a lot of workers in the aisle, you have to do what you have to do and you move on.”
When Montgomery-Strickland walked out to her car, the woman “went to her car, came back with the baby,” she recalled.
“[She] called me the b-word, then she stood behind my car because I started videotaping after that.
Shaneeka says she had forgotten about the brief confrontation until it came to walking back out to her car to leave.
‘She still went to her car, came back with the baby in the cart, called me the B-word, then she stood behind my car because I started videotaping after that.’ Shaneeka said.
‘I said ma’am can you please move from behind my car, she told me “no I’m not going anywhere,”‘ Shaneeka said.
The white woman then called the police who came in a few minutes to resolve the dispute. He quickly ran to them to put it next to the story. The woman claimed that Shaneeka was upset that she was recording and asked her to delete the video without realizing that the entire match was recorded and uploaded directly to Facebook in real-time.
The officers took down details from both women but eventually asked the white woman to stand aside and move.
‘I’ve gotten a lot of responses. People are very angry and upset about it because they say it makes no sense. What is wrong with people? Why are they still out here doing this after all that’s going on, all the changes we’re trying to make? After Black Lives Matter? It makes no sense,’ she said.
