Why does it matter that both involved identify as Democrats?  The phrase "go back where you came from" is a fairly well recognized and long-standing racially motivated attack.  If she is lying, she should be held accountable.  If she is not, then whoever threatened her should be held accountable to whatever standard is applicable.  Let the investigation play out before you go trying to stir things up by bringing politics into it.

I didn't bring politics into it as it was stated over and over again in the interview that he is democrat and she is a legislator. Therefore, in my opinion, its relevant to the context of the story.

From what I have read, the only federal laws covering this, are EEOC, laws concerning employment and workplace discrimination, and no federal laws were broken here. If any state laws were supposedly violated, I'm sure the police would have steeped in, and at least given out a citation. Sounds like a little baby wanting attention.

"I said, 'Are you really going to argue with me?' and he said, 'Yes, I am,' and he kept cursing at me, kept berating me," Thomas said. "I was embarrassed, and I was scared for my life."
Yea, so scared that you still completed the transaction, and walked calmly out the door. ::)

Agreed. Sounds like this store does not train, nor support its workers that well. A good store would have a well known policy on handling people with more items that the sign says for that checkout lane, and managers easy to get, if needed. Most places say not to confront the costumer, and call a manager if anything close to an argument comes up. Sounds like this place has none of that, and left the worker out to fend for himself. Even as a department manager at Lowes, I was supposed to call the manager on duty, before any conversation with a costumer got anything close to an argument.

the guy in the argument is not an employee-he's another customer so it's between the two of them. The guy asked for the manager to go over there and do something about it. Given the lightness of the of the event I think it's a reasonable approach that the manager decided not to confront the woman in line. Unfortunately it didn't work that way. .....and the man accused of saying it is Cuban. I think she made it up but I could be wrong

....also , if you watch the video when they are debating outside to the news the man not only goes so far to say with conviction word for word what happened in the surveilance video, he said his facebook page is public and can be seen that he is anti-republican, anti-trump, anti racist etc...etc. He looks caucasian. gasoline...meet fire. Two staunch democrats eating themselves on a central topic as of late but somehow ending up on different sides.
