The quotes are short but telling... Statement Analysis is in bold type. While simply reading a news account of "he said; she said", we are able to know the truth. The quotes from the subject should be seen in the pattern presented, including:
1. The lack of a reliable denial
2. The use of tangent to distract from the allegation
3. The need to persuade
The racial divide of "Us Versus Them" continues. Politicians use racial baiting which, eventually, unites people on both sides, as it is human nature to "belong." Note the subject's words to police on the way out, while under arrest, highlights this very thing.
Florida pub owner held black couple at gunpoint after dispute about a drink: cops
Here's how not to handle a customer complaint.
A white Florida pub owner allegedly held a young black couple at gunpoint in her establishment during a birthday party, threatened to kill them and shouted racial racial slurs after a dispute over a drink, police records show.
“It’s all false accusations,” Kim Bruns, owner of a George & Dragon British Pub in Orlando, told the Orlando Sentinel.
This avoids stating that she did not do it, lumping "all" together, and is to deny "accusations" while not having to use language to name any specific allegation. This avoidance, itself, means the allegation is sensitive to the subject. She then uses a technique common to deceptive people: The tangent.
The tangent is to avoid the accusation and to attempt to not only distract the listener away from the accusation, but to persuade, rathe than deny.
“I have black people who work for me. I have never used a racial slur.”
1. "It's all false accusations" is to avoid saying "I didn't do it." It is passive and lacks the pronoun "I"
2. "I have black people who work for me" is unrelated to the accusation, avoids denying it, and is a tangent. This is commonly heard in sexual assaults where the perpetrator says "I am a happily married man" as "evidence" that it could not have happened, instead of denying it.
It shows the need to persuade rather than deny.
3. "I have never used a racial slur" is to avoid denying using racial slurs and is also unreliable with the word "never."
Everyone has used racial slurs, if only when discussing racial slurs. This is a Mark Furman under oath statement.
It is very likely that this subject is deceptive and knew not to let police see the video.
The alleged threat happened Saturday night, when Kayla Davis and her boyfriend Darien Elwin came to the pub to celebrate Elwin’s 20th birthday, since they had a discount for a dinner there.
After Bruns, who turned 21 two months ago, ordered a drink, Bruns allegedly brought it to her with an odd warning.
“As soon as she gave it to me, she said, ‘I’m watching you, and you better not give any drinks to minors,’” Davis told the Sentinel. “It felt weird and racist a little bit.”
Note that the statement begins in the past tense, and the quote is in present tense, and then the comment of feeling returned to past tense. This is appropriate.
Note next that the impact:
1. Felt weird" is first
2 . Racist is "a little bit" and it came second. Coming second with the qualification of "little bit" is also consistent.
It is likely that the subject here felt insult, but did not initially consider it racist but kept her "weird" feeling about sharing a drink with an underaged person.
This is likely to be a truthful account.
Offended by the owner’s remark, Davis returned the drink without taking a sip and said she and her boyfriend were leaving.
That’s when Bruns yelled to other customers to not let the couple leave, an arrest report says.
The owner left the barroom, came back with a .357-caliber Magnum Colt Python and yelled that she would shoot them, the report says. She also allegedly threw a drinking glass at Davis, which missed her and shattered on a wall.
When Elwin tried to cool things down, offering to pay for the drink, Bruns allegedly replied: “I’ll shoot you too if I have to. It’s legal.”
When police arrived, Bruns denied any confrontation but refused to show officers any surveillance video.
She has now been charged with aggravated assault with a firearm and aggravated assault, the Sentinel reports.
When she was cuffed in her pub on Saturday, she reportedly said to an officer: “I can’t believe you would take those (racial slur) side over mine.”
This is to suggest that the police are in the "Us Versus Them" artificial divide, as if police are on the "same team" as a racial spewing, gun using liar, and not part of the "team" of justice.
