Janet Kuypers
(poetry converted to prose)

    An older white woman, who after shopping, saw four black men in her car. Deciding to be safe, she owned a gun, and took it out of her purse, pointing it at the four men and telling them to get out of the car.
    The men left, but she soon realized that she was not at her her, so she found her car in the parking lot a few minutes later.
    Feeling bad for what she had done, she drove to the police station to let them know what happened in that grocery store parking lot. As she told the story to the police officer, he laughed, and pointed out the four black men at the station reporting their car jacking by an old white lady.
    No charges were filed.
