A right-wing activist was investigated over a cryptic social media post claiming to know about the cause of a mass power outage in central North Carolina.
Emily Grace Rainey, a former U.S. Army psychological operations officer, posted about the outages that left nearly 40,000 customers without power, but Moore County sheriff Ronnie Fields told WRAL-TV that he prayed with her and determined her claims were not credible.
"Yes, we had to go and interview this young lady and have a word of prayer with her, but it turned out to be nothing," Fields said.
(Well, that solves that. Good work, Sherlock.)
Holy shit, if you made this up people wouldn't believe it. What the hell is going on down there?
Don't know what she specifically wrote, but even the dumbass cop said having to investigate such online claims takes up time and resources. So, prayer gets you out of suspicion....... or was it saying a prayer with the sheriff helped keep a young, blonde, white woman out of trouble for posting bullshit?
@Paul4747 And at least one person died during the outages and by NC law can be charged with murder.
So the power outage was God punishing 40,000 people for something only a few had anything to do with. Clearly she believes in the wrathful Old Testament god. I guess we're lucky it wasn't a meteor.
