Wait a sec. She left New Orleans to vacation in Houston? I was raised in Houston & I can't think of a single reason to vacation there.

Man, she's got it all backwards in life.

Maybe it was humid in New Orleans....lol..as if it's not in Houston.

Every redeeming value of Houston that I can think of (some of the food and music are really good), New Orleans does so much better (like the food and music).  And as far as bayous go, I think Louisiana gets bragging rights over Buffalo and Braes Bayous.

And did you ever see a Buffalo anywhere near Buffalo Bayou?

I grew up down the street from NASA. I mowed one astronaut's lawn for two summers.

NASA, I mean, I guess?? I suppose Space Center Houston is worth checking out. Houston is definitely worth checking out for the food scene. I suppose while you were down near NASA, you could stop by Killen's Barbecue in Pearland, enjoy some brisket & try to find JJ Watt's secret entrance. He lived in Pearland his first few years in H-Town & was a regular there before he blew up.

She's obviously angry about the potato famine, which, for some reason, she believes to be caused by Mexicans. Perhaps she saw a picture of an Englishman with a pointy beard taking Irish potatoes and mistook him for Mexican. But whether or not the Mexicans were complicit in the Great Potato Famine, there is still no reason to attack with a hammer, when a car bomb will do. Probably video cuts off before she yells, 'Free Gerry Adams" and starts singing Sinead O'Connor songs. These potato-rich Ecuadorians should have pity for the long-suffering Irish people.

She was arrested Sunday and remains in jail as of Tuesday. So far, investigators haven't been able to say what sparked the incident.

I'm an American Mongrel, but I have Irish ancestors who were LITERAL terrorists.  I have a couple great-great grand-pappys who came over here because they were blowing up bridges and killing Brits.  They came to the US, on the run, or they'd be hung.

Every immigrant wave comes here, seeking a new life.  Every wave before it, tells them to f*ck off.  Can we maybe figure out a better way to accept people into this country who WANT to be here?

I've noticed that with people practicing social distancing, a lot of the petty acts of racism are just building up in people until they grab a hammer and start waving it around.

It's not like LSU or the Saints were playing there. Maybe they wanted to say hi to the diaspora that's settled there.

Eh, it's also the biggest city closest to NOLA so that probably played a part too.

Lol she's looking at life in prison if they decide it was racially motivated.

Good luck, lady. I hope it was worth it.

But if prosecutors believe racism was the motive, the charge could be enhanced to a first-degree felony, with a punishment range of up to life in prison.

I'm pretty sure that screaming "You Mexicans, get out of my F**ing country. Go back to your F**ing country" suggests she *might* just have somewhat racist motives.

Racism. I seriously doubt that will ever be expressed as the cause, but it's f*cking obvious it's racism.

I don't understand.  This woman drives around looking for Mexicans and this fair-skinned couple was the closest she could find to confront and we are all just supposed to accept that this is what happened?  That she is driving around looking to detect Mexicans or possibly other foreign slightly darker skinned denizens and then following them to the point that they realize they are being followed, and pulling over to confront the issue, and she has the hammer ready?  Well, I've heard crazier stories.  But that's kinda crazyae.

Med student from Ecuador. On a budget, everything cool is closed, maybe just hitting up all the big cities she recognizes?

If I was stuck in the USA I'd be driving in circles looking for Arlen, Texas, so I could stand in an alley and have a beer with the locals, maybe get my picture taken riding a lawnmower, try the BBQ.

Last I heard Houston was about 20% white so it's a bit odd to be defensive over an area that's already, well, you know. I figure South Americans might want to vacation there to avoid a language barrier.

Not understanding this angle.  The "Karen" seems highly motivated in policing the area, but there wasn't any information about her being disrespected.  There are clearly gaps in the usual journalistic information dissemination, but where is information about what brewed this confrontation from the start?  The idea that she's a hammer waving anti-emigrate watchdog seems quite boiled down.
