White woman pointed gun at Black mom & daughter; charged with assault
Another case of a white woman using her gun to try to settle a dispute with a black woman, only this incident ended better than some of the previously reported ones did.
"A white woman and her husband have been charged with assault after she was seen pointing a gun at a Black mother and her teenage daughter in a now-viral video.
Michigan authorities . . . explained that the conflict started after an alleged bumping incident at a Chipotle restaurant in Orion Township.
"Two very different stories from two different groups. Both sides claiming they feel extremely threatened," Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said. . . .
The video, posted by Takela Hill [the black mom] on Wednesday, shows an interaction during which Hill claims Jillian Wuestenberg, 32, [white woman with a gun] had just bumped into [Hill's] 15-year-old daughter.
Wuestenberg claimed she was being blocked from entering her car before her husband, Eric Wuestenberg, 42, was seen on video helping usher her into the vehicle.
The couple and Hill argued and exchanged racial accusations before Hill appeared to move behind the couple's vehicle.
Hill says the couple tried hitting her [with the car] as they reversed out of their parking spot, according to authorities. Jillian Wuestenberg accuses Hill of striking her car. . . .
Jillian Wuestenberg then exited the car and brandished a gun, pointing it at Hill several times.

If Wuestenberg and her husband are convicted of felony assault, they could face up to four years in jail."
I do hope we are not going to hear again the "defense" that the black mom and teen are responsible for having a gun pointed at them by the unhappy white woman. That "excuse" is getting old.
