New York Woman Who Ran Over BLM Protestors Alleges She Was Attacked, Rejects Plea Deal Before Trial

On guy who was injured claims it was ‘white supremacy’ that caused her actions



A Queens woman accused of driving through a Manhattan Black Lives Matter protest a year ago has refused a plea deal — choosing to stand trial because she insists she had been under attack.

Kathleen Casillo, 52, was caught in shocking video footage as she drove her black BMW sedan through the protest against ICE detentions in Midtown on Dec. 11 last year.
