South Carolina Drunk Driver Tells Cops She's A "White, Clean Girl" And Should Be Let Go

Submitted by: fancylad 2 months ago in News & Politics

South Carolina woman Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw, 32, was caught driving through a stop sign at twice the speed limit while under the influence this past Saturday morning. When pulled over by the cops, Cutshaw said she had perfect grades in high school, she was a cheerleader, she was in a sorority, her boyfriend is a cop, she graduated from a "high accredited university" and it was her birthday.

"I'm a white, clean girl," she added. Then to drive the point home, she said: "You're a cop. You should know what that means."

Cutshaw told police she had only had two glasses of wine, but had a 0.18 percent blood-alcohol level, but Cutshaw was arrested nevertheless. She was charged with driving under the influence, speeding, disregarding a stop sign and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

What kind of country has America become where a perfectly wasted white girl can't talk her way out of a simple DUI?

Since we're accused of having white privilege, we may as well be guilty.  I say let the pretty white girle off the hook completely.

I think there should be a law, where you are allowed to drive while drunk, but only from 10 to 11. Speed limits lifted, stop signs not mandatory, and so so.

I would vote to use my tax money to pay for that, as long as there was enough warning for me to get off the street, and all participants agree to a 'DNR'. Think of the potential to improve the average IQ.

 "Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw, 32, was caught driving through a stop sign at twice the speed limit while under the influence" So the speed limit at a stop sign is 0 so twice that speed is 00? Obviously a bad stop by the police, if she was going twice standing still.

Not gonna lie, as a young man, i did way more drunk driving than I should have.

But I never got all liquored up and drove twice the speed limit, you are just asking for pain then.  I think I drove suspiciously slow to be honest lol.

Cops are really going after drunk drivers in michigan, Uber has drastically cut into the number of arrests they are making, they still need that money.

My uncle said it used to be no sweat to grab 5+ drunks a week, now they are lucky to get 2.

daegog I was a pilot, so I've never knowingly driven drunk. I couldn't risk my license. I've especially not been tempted since I moved to HK with its great public transport.

Older generations did though. I'm amazed I still have both parents.

He's posted a story about an entitled shitty person being shitty and trying to get out of a ticket by saying she's an entitled white girl.

How is fancy "trying to stir up race shit" ?

Worth every penny. I hope you didn't pay more than street price.

Here's a great money-making idea. I offer it free-of-obligation to any entrepreneur: A  website that does for online degrees what travelocity does for hotels, air travel and ewes-stuck-in-tires rentals. People sign on and get bids from a number of online universities for degrees on the cheap. Univorcity? Degrees-R-Us?

So if she had said "i'm a good christian girl" then it would have been an issue of merit ? Or is it an issue of religion ? Or is it an issue of gender?

Or is it just the excuse of a shitty entitled person being shitty and entitled?

someguy01 Not sure if you are checking back in but could I ask you to reconsider? Some of us are trying to bring back the more fun and pleasant vibe that IAB once had. For myself, I’m trying hard not to post or comment on anything political (as tough as that is these days, almost everything is!), it just brings out the worse in some folks. We have known that for a long time, politics and religion, bad topics for friendly conversation. There are folks on this site that you would think hate me and vis-versa but I know better. I’ve been here a very long time and have had differences with many fine people but I know some of the responses I’ve had would be different in person. Just try and stay away from the things that are not your bag and enjoy the rest. Anyway, peace.

Anyway. I'll let things be here for now. If you are determined to leave the site tomorrow, reply here and I'll explain a suggested approach.

squrlz4ever Take me off the site. I appreciate what you and trimble said but fancylad said it best "It's easy: Don't comment, or submit things that don't trigger you." I'm not "triggered" since that is a made up word used by people to make themselves feel morally superior. I'm just tired of the echo chamber this site has become. There is real gang mentality here. You are either a part of the group, or you aren't. Well, I'll take fancylad's advice and not submit or comment. I'm just going to leave. Reddit is the place to be and I'll take my business there. Good luck squrlz4ever you are one of the good ones. You and trimble with your kinds words are always appreciated. If you want to see what your community has become, look at the myriad of posts concerning my leaving. Please delete my account. I will not visit this site again. Peace.

someguy01 I'm sorry IAB hasn't worked out for you and I wish you well. I hope you revisit this comment of yours because I need to explain some technical limitations on this end regarding deleting accounts and also explain the tombstoning procedure.

Most websites that use a fair amount of user-generated content, such as comments and submissions, do not allow for accounts to be erased from the system and that is the case here at IAB. If I were to do a straight delete of a user's account, all of the content submissions that he or she has had approved would be deleted; all of the conversations on the comment boards attached to that content would be deleted; all of the comments of that user on other boards across the site would be deleted; and all of the comments responding to those comments (and contents responding to those comments) would be deleted. What we'd wind up with would be a large number of cascading deletes that would leave significant holes in our website's content (and also risk corrupting the backend tables because we're talking about a lot of data deletion and manipulation).

Consequently, what most websites like ours do is "tombstone" accounts. This means they are deactivated, never to function again, but the content remains.

If you have some comments on the boards that reveal personal information, it would be wise to delete those comments prior to the tombstoning of your account. I would ask you to please not delete more than a few comments, if any at all, because many of our regular users' comments are depending on them and you would be deleting their comments as well.

Please also remove your name from your account information, if you haven't already. Use either "Anonymous Name" or "No Name."

Once you've read through the above and have deleted anything revealing you need to delete, we're ready to do the actual tombstoning. This is a process that you, yourself, do and not me and there's a reason for that, too. Since I can neither deactivate the account or reactivate it, this means you will never have to worry that I or someone else on the staff will somehow mistakenly reactivate it in your absence. Once you have tombstoned your account, it's deactivated forever.

TOMBSTONING PROCESS: PRINT OUT THESE INSTRUCTIONS!

1. Under Profile, set the email of your account to an email address you have access to.

2. Log out of your account.

3. At the login screen, hit the Forgot Password link and enter your account's email.

4. Go to your email inbox, open the Password Reset email, and click the link in that email.

5. Enter your email address and then enter a new perfectly random 16-digit password. Write this out in advance on a small piece of paper. It should be something akin to this: Rb8$WN83h!g49*Hx. Do NOT use this example. Your 16-digit perfectly random password should have uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols in it in a random pattern that means nothing whatsoever to you. No words should be included. Enter this password a second time in the Confirm Password box. Then click the Reset Password.

6. Now, take the small piece of paper with the random password written on it, tear it into small pieces, and flush them down your toilet. This is not a joke; I'm perfectly serious.

7. Unless you have a photographic memory, you will not be able to recall that password within a few minutes, let alone 24 hours. There are more 16-digit perfectly random passwords possible, using the types of characters I've asked you to use, than there are grains of sand on planet Earth. That is not an exaggeration. In other words: Once you've flushed that password down your toilet and have forgotten it, no one is ever going to log into that account again.

8. Now, using the "Contact" link at the bottom of the IAB homepage, send an email titled: SOMEGUY01 TOMBSTONING. You don't need to be logged into an account to do this. Under Topic, select "Bugs & Other Site Feedback." In that email, let me know you've tombstoned your account. I will then strip off your email address from the account and delete your contact email. At that point, there will be no way anyone can use the account, ever, and no way anyone can ever connect it with your identity.

9. Feel free to contact me at the Contact link if you have any further questions. I hope this was helpful.

Farewell!

metalgreymon "Funny how it's not worthy of your attention but it IS worthy of your time to comment saying how it's not worth you attention..." i bitch about stuff all the time yo. i often click away and move on from things that dont interest me, but if i see something that is just stupid and a waste of time, i will mention it hoping future similar content wont be posted to waste our time.

"Personally i love hearing stories with a happy ending lol" this dumb white bitch said some stupid shit to some cops when she was drunk. how do we even know she actually said what the cops are saying she said? i havent seen any video evidence, it is all just hearsay, gossip. you and i now know this woman, we have seen pictures of her, and we are passing judgement on her for a single moment in her life where she got drunk, drove her car, and acted like a spoiled white bitch in front of cops. for all we know, she doesnt actually deserve this. you call that a happy ending?

would tai pass judgement, metalgreymon?

But i think what you have to realize is that while it may not be your cup of tea, it may be another's. Like mine and fancy's for instance.

So if it doesn't interest you don't even click on it. That's what i do with 90% of the crap on here. Different strokes for different folks, right?

As for how accurate the story is...well if you research everything you see on here before you allow yourself to be amused then you're a better person than i lol.

metalgreymon 'if you research everything you see on here before you allow yourself to be amused then you're a better person than i lol." not everything, only things that raise red flags, like when its just a cops word against another. i checked out the link, kztv action 10 news, didnt get much more than what is mentioned here. maybe there is video or audio evidence, but i did do a bit of checking and couldnt find it. it was actually a comment on the kztv action 10 news site (twitter feed maybe) that made me comment, the original comment was, "Why is this news?"

So since you can find no contradictory evidence, logic dictates that we accept this version of events as provisionally true.

In which case your only objection appears to be " i don't like this, so why did you post this?"/

Fair?

metalgreymon the only evidence as to what she said is what ever the cops say. i do not automatically accept a cops word as truth. i have had too many experiences with cops where they straight up lied to ever just trust the word of a cop. this is just cops saying a white drunk chick said some things during an arrest, why is it any of our business? youre right, i dont like this, because i think its wrong to judge this woman we dont know based on this one event in her life and i dont think its right to spread it around the internet. i am a member of this website, just like you, when we see something that bothers us, we are free to voice our concern. im not asking "why did you post this?", im saying dont post crap that is just hearsay from the police.

Can you explain to me why it is not logical to provisionally accept a conclusion based on available evidence?

metalgreymon OK, sorry about the delay.

We have a situation in which two parties present differing accounts. There is no video or audio evidence for either side, there is only testimony.

Certainly evidence of speeding or alcohol could objectively be presented but the issue is the driver's response after being stopped. No evidence has been presented for that, except the contrasting accounts given.

Why, logically, should one account be accepted as provisionally true? Because it came from the police? If there were available evidence for that I would agree with you But there isn't.

Personally I think it plausible that the driver did respond in that manner, but that is a subjective opinion, not something that "logic dictates".

In short, without evidence logic does not dictate that I accept, provisionally or otherwise, account A over account B. 

If a close friend that I have known and trusted for decades gives me on account of an incident and a character I have long regarded as seriously dodgy gives another I will take my friend's account but that is not something "logic dictates".

Actually, all we have evidence of is one account. We don't have competing stories. I think you've imagined the alternate evidence,
We have the story as represented in this post and we have rob saying "well you shouldn't think it's funny unless we know both sides of the story".

This story shouldn't be accepted as provisionally true via some kind of argument from authority. It should be accepted as provisionally true because it's the only version of events we have.

So yeah, unless there's sufficient reason to doubt this version of events (and you have presented not such reason) then logic dictates that we accept this version as provisionally true.

In a logical argument the conclusion is either correct or incorrect. It is IMHO quite sensible to accept a conclusion provisionally, while awaiting or searching out more evidence.
