South Florida Doctor Accused Of Attacking Hispanic Man, Charged With Hate Crime

https://miami.cbslocal.com/2021/02/22/south-florida-doctor-accused-attacking-hispanic-man-charged-hate-crime/

A South Florida doctor accused of attacking a man at a Publix in Hialeah and calling him a racial slur has been charged with a hate crime.

Dr. Jennifer Susan Wright, 58, reportedly become enraged after the man asked her in Spanish to keep her distance due to COVID-19 guidelines while waiting in line at the supermarket, according to CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald.

Wright ignored him, so he repeated it in English. She responded by “mumbling bad words,” according to the arrest report. Wright reportedly then walked up to him in the parking lot and, after he asked her to back up, she hurled racial and other insults at him.

The arrest report said Wright also proceeded “to stab the victim’s vehicle with her keys while saying he needed to go back to his country” and punched and kicked the man. Officials said the attack took place on January 20, when President Joe Biden took office.

Wright, who is reportedly an ardent supporter of former President Donald Trump, has been charged with criminal mischief, tampering with a victim, and battery with prejudice, a “hate crime” enhancement that upgraded the charge to a felony.

2. Might need to job hunt in a different

line of work, too, if she loses her license over this felony.

Shouldn't a doctor know better than to crowd someone's space during a pandemic?
