There are racist hall monitors on patrol who report black people for engaging in outrageous activities such as barbecuing in a public park.
The latest offender was a white woman dubbed "Permit Patty" who reported an 8-year-old black girl for "illegally" selling water.
Alison Ettel, the white woman who made the call to authorities, denied the incident that took place in San Francisco was racially motivated.
She now regrets what happened and told TheHuffington Post the whole thing was a mistake.
I completely regret that I handled that so poorly. It was completely stress-related, and I should have never confronted her. That was a mistake, a complete mistake. Please don't make me sound horrible.
In the video, Ettel notices the woman filming her who happens to be the little girl's mother and is heard narrating the entire episode.
This woman don't want a little girl to sell some water, she's calling the police on an 8-year-old girl.
Ettel quickly hides and attempts her best "descending elevator" trick by ducking behind a barrier, but it only elevates her lunacy when the mother finds her crouching on the sidewalk.

"Don't hide, the whole world gonna see you, boo," the girl's mother says.
Ettel is heard saying into her phone, "Yeah, and um, illegally selling water without a permit?"
The mother confirmed, "On my property."
With the camera still on her, Ettel responded, "It's not your property."

Later, Ettel told the Post she contacted authorities because the mother was yelling.
They were screaming about what they were selling. It was literally nonstop. It was every two seconds, 'Come and buy my water.' It was continuous and it wasn't a soft voice, it was screaming.
Ettel also claimed she only pretended to call the police to intimidate the vendors and said there was "no racial component."

When the Post asked why her office window remained open throughout the noise, she claimed it was too hot and closing it would not have stopped the noise from her disturbing her at all.
Ettel admitted she "snapped" after "putting up with the ruckus for four hours, but said the call wasn't racially motivated.
I have no problem with enterprising young women. I want to support that little girl. It was all the mother and just about being quiet.
After some sleuthing, Twitter called out her hypocrisy.

After the "BBQ Becky" incident, in which another white woman called the police complaining about a black family enjoying a barbecue in a public park, it seems like racists are more emboldened than ever.
