David Elmendorf Becomes 1st Person Fined Under New ‘Karen’ Law In NY (Video)

David Elmendorf of Schenectady, New York, has to pay nine demonstrators $500 each as a result of the new Karen law.

The “CAREN Act,” which stands for Caution Against Racially Exploitative Non-Emergencies, was signed into law in June 2020.

The bill was designed to stop people like David from making false racially biased reports.

David is the former owner of Bumpy’s Polar Freeze ice cream shop in Schenectady, NY, and he called the police on BLM protestors under false threat allegations in June 2020.

David claimed that there were “20 armed protesters who were threatening to shoot him” at his store.

Which was an absolute lie.

What really happened:

BLM protesters showed up at Bumpy’s to peacefully protest after he allegedly sent racist text messages that were circulated on social media.

In the video, protestors called David a racist who calls his employees the n-word and doesn’t pay black people.

A Black grandmother shared her two run-ins with David at Bumpy’s involving her grandkids, she told the crowd of protestors that David called her grandkids “a bunch of mf’ing ni**ers!”

Watch the video below:

David was recorded by a bystander climbing out of a pickup near Bumpy’s Polar Freeze with what appeared to be a weapon in his hand.

Watch the video below:

Schenectady police later confirmed that it was David in the video.

Reportedly, he was arrested on misdemeanor charges.

New York State Attorney General, Letitia James, sued Elmendorf under the “CAREN Act.”

The charges against David Elmendorf should serve as a warning that hate crimes will not be tolerated on my watch and we will not allow any individual to use the color of someone’s skin as a weapon.

California Attorney General Rob Bonta is aligned with the New York State Attorney General.

This bill could protect millions of Californians from becoming targets of hate and prevent the weaponization of our law enforcement against communities of color.

The “CAREN Act” was introduced in San Francisco in July. 

This bill needs to be law in every state in the United States.
