Samantha Shader Pottawatomie
The white Catskills woman who allegedly attacked the NYPD with a molotov cocktail during the height of the George Floyd protests in the city claimed three masked black people pressured her into the explosive act, according to new court documents.
In a series of recorded video interviews, Samantha Shader, 27, admitted she threw the device, court papers say — but said she did so at the behest of a two black men and a black woman and that she felt compelled to comply because she was “the only white person in the area,” Shader said. Oh well, since she told us that it means it was ok.
She even offered detailed descriptions of their appearances.
The man who handed her the bottle, she said, was a “thicker guy” with “skinny dreads.” The second man was smaller and wore a hat, while the woman was thin with “poofy hair,” and all wore dark clothing and covered their faces with dark colored bandanas,she said.
