Raw Story: A Black woman in Virginia who exposed two local police officers for taking part in the January 6th Capitol riots is facing backlash from residents in her town.

Note the attempted suicide by finger pistol…



The Washington Post reports that Bridgette Craighead of Rocky Mount, Virginia has been facing criticism after she correctly identified Rocky Mount Police Officers Thomas “T.J.” Robertson and Jacob Fracker as pro-Trump rioters after the two posted selfies while standing in the United States Capitol on January 6th.

Jeff Bailey, who owns an auto-detailing shop in the town, tells the Post that he believes Robertson and Fracker were absolutely right to be at the Capitol that day protesting against Congress’s certification of the 2020 election results.

“They are ex-military,” Bailey said, who described Craighead as a “troublemaker” in town. “They were taught to fight for their country against any enemy, foreign or domestic on behalf of Klan values. The election was stolen by queers and communists. They did what they were taught to do. Bridgette shouldn’t stick her nose in other people’s business. These are family men.  She needs to be lynched.

Rocky Mount resident Jackie Fields, a Trump supporter, similarly blamed Craighead for supposedly stirring up racial tensions in the town.

“People like Bridgette Craighead are making the divide,” she said. “People around here just want to get along.”

In an interview with the Post, Craighead defended her activism and said she’s not trying to exacerbate racism, but is only pointing out its existence.

“They hate me for it,” Craighead said. “They think I’m stirring things up, that there weren’t any issues until I brought them up. They are there. They don’t want to see them.”

  1. Another old southern racist trope, “contributing to society” as if the one who uses it ever does …
    Nice name Dick son.

  2. It is amazing how many confederate flags I see flying in rural upstate NY. I’m pretty sure southern pride has nothing to do with it. So, when those got frowned on , they picked up blue line flags for the cops, and red line flags for the fire departments.
    We all know what they mean. It reminds me of the little kids who hide in plain sight in a game of hide and seek.

  3. Now that Trump has lost the election, what now Dick? Mail-in voting completely overwhelmed the traditional methods of voter suppression in our major cities like Milwaukee, Detroit, and Atlanta, which had made it near impossible for inner-city folks to vote. Welcome to democracy in the USA, white man.

  4. The South will rise again…and again…and again. I continue be amazed that ReTrumplicans have been taken in by the racist ideology that claims Europeans were destined by God to displace indigenous people all around the world, rape them, pillage them, and in the case of the former American Confederacy, own them. This is exactly what is still happening in Palestine with the blessing of US Christian Zionists. Manifest Destiny equals Zionism equals racism. If you don’t believe me, just ask any Native American or any Palestinian.

  5. As in Geogia last week at the Governor’s door, Black women are taking on the powers that be.
    Bless them all.
