Here’s What Happens When People Demand $1,000 In “Reparations”

A Target security officer struck a woman in the face after she allegedly chased him into an office when the store was unwilling to give her $1,000 in food as “reparations.”

What are the specifics?

According to the New York Post, this incident occurred in Blue Ash, Ohio, in October, when Karen Ivery asked the cashier for a manager concerning the bill and restitution.

According to the investigation, the cashier told investigators that Ivery mentioned reparations multiple times during their brief conversation before the manager came.

When conversing with the management, the client first demanded compensation before becoming enraged and approaching the manager “aggressively,” according to the report, which was cited by the Post.

According to the Post, “Ivery kept yelling at her over reparations and her privileged lifestyle” while the customer continued going toward the manager.

According to the complaint, Zach Cotter, a loss-prevention official, intervened and urged Ivery to settle down and exit the store.

According to the Post, Ivery reportedly started shouting at Cotter and followed him into his office.

When he attempted to close the door, Ivery reportedly forced her way inside the office — and Cotter swung a punch, according to the report. After the smack, Ivery collapsed on the ground.

In a separate video, one of the police officers informs Ivery that he actually has information on her from video evidence — specifically, the security guard who was afraid for his own safety after Ivery backed him into the office — and she responds, “When individuals get backed into a corner, these individuals have a choice to do the proper thing, or they can decide to lash out.”

Ivery further stated that she “maintained the line” and then “consistently moved my line” before blaming store staff for “gatekeeping me. If the laws are intended to keep people down, you are going to fight for me, my neighborhood!” she said, raising her left fist. “You’ll come after me! People who resemble you have given up attempting to keep out people who resemble me,” she said.

“This has become my Rosa Parks moment, dude,” Ivery told a police officer. “Don’t mess with me.”

Is there anything else?

According to the Post, after authorities confirmed that Ivery was indeed the “aggressor,” she was arrested.

The report also stated that “Ivery was combative with the responding police officers and refused to explain her conduct.”

Ivery was sentenced to one day in jail and fined $110 for disorderly behavior, according to the Post.
