42-year-old Nicole Marie Poole Franklin from Des Moines, Iowa was charged with attempted murder for hitting a teen with her car because the teen was “a Mexican.” 

In a press release shared by the Clive City Police Department, police Chief Michael Venema said that the 14-year-old was on her way to a school activity on Dec. 9, when Franklin hit her with her car and left without helping her.

Venema said Franklin was already in custody at Polk County Jail on other charges when she admitted to being the driver who hit the girl. KCCI reports she was being held on assault charges, after using racial slurs and throwing things at customers and employees of a convenience store.

According to Venema, Franklin told investigators that she intentionally hit the girl because she was “a Mexican” and subsequently made “a number of derogatory statements about Latinos.”

Franklin is currently being held in Polk County Jail on a bond of $1 million for the attempted murder charge. She also faces charges of theft, violation of individual rights, consumption/intoxication, and possession of marijuana.
When will the blatant racism stop?
