Even police dispatchers are targeted by blacks.
A Clarksdale police dispatcher is recovering after a brutal beating while she was on duty last week.
“It breaks my heart that someone would even do that to another human being,” Clarksdale resident Crystal McDaniel said.
Just like any other day, Barbara King was the only dispatcher on duty Wednesday morning.
But on that day, police say Stacy Clark came into the department asking for property that had been left in the building.
King tried reaching an officer, but they were all on patrol.
Police say, that’s when Clark started beating her. Luckily, she had the strength to dispatch officers for help.
