A Black woman and her son were terrorized by a group of racist thugs who ran her vehicle off the road, yelled racial slurs and then smashed the windows.
“They tried to run us off the road saying, ‘You [n*****], get the [f***] out of our country,’ and we were like distraught because we didn’t know exactly what was going on,” said Natia Shim.
Shim was on her way to help her son fill out job applications because he was preparing to graduate from high school soon.
That’s when all hell broke loose.
WYNT reports that Shim and her 17-year-old son feared for their life as they drove in Upstate New York and were ambushed by a green truck that rammed into their car.
“All he kept saying was, ‘Mommy, they’re going to kill us, they’re going to kill us,’ and I’m just sitting there like, ‘Just go,’ and I’m ducking down in the seat,” Shim explained.
The truck cut them off and three men and two women got out and started slamming Shim’s vehicle with a bat and a frying pan, smashing the windows and denting the car. They screamed racial obscenities as they terrorized Shim and her son.
“They’re screaming, ‘We are the white supremacists,’ and n*****s do not belong in their country,” Shim recalled in an interview with News 13 Albany.
Shim said her son called 911 and seven witnesses called in as well to report the incident.
Then in a bizarre turn of events, the offenders who badgered Shim and her son reportedly called in to the police and admitted they terrorized them.
“The people that did it said, ‘Oh, we thought that her vehicle was the vehicle who robbed my son for a radio a day prior in Watervliet,”’ Shim explained.
“They took it in their own hands and chased down the wrong car from Troy to Latham to kill me and my son. How are we supposed to feel safe?” Shim asked.
She now wants to move out of the area, saying that the same people have been stalking her and later drove down her street.
No word on if the people who terrorized Shim and her son have been arrested.
