Fox News reported this week that Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins was confirmed by the U.S. Senate this week as the new U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts.
Rollins’ confirmation came despite footage showing the nominee going on unhinged, racially charged rants in January of this year.
According to Boston 25 News, the incident arose following an allegation by a Boston woman who accused Rollins of impersonating a police officer. Katie Lawson said she encountered an irate Rollins on Christmas Eve while attempting to pull out from the South Bay Mall parking lot.
“She pulled her car about three inches from my car and said, ‘Do you want me to write you a ticket? Because I’ll write you a ticket,’ put on the sirens, put on the strobe lights for like, probably a couple of seconds,” Lawson recalled, adding that Rollins told her, “Today is not the day to try me!”
“I 1,000 percent thought that she was a police officer because the only person I know that can write you a ticket is an actual police officer,” Lawson continued. “So she implied, in my opinion, she implied that she was a police officer,” the Boston woman went on. “I thought she was a police officer. That’s why I called the police department.”
Rollins goes crazy
Lawson provided Boston 25 News with a photo of the vehicle’s license plate that was taken by her fiancée, and the station confirmed that it belonged to the district attorney’s office.
When a news crew later approached Rollins, she began to yell, “So as a Black woman, in this moment in this country, you’re going to put my f—ing house on screen?”

In fact, contrary to her claims, the local news station did not broadcast images of Rollins’ home. However, the public official went on to assert that the station would be responsible if she or her family were hurt.
“Attack” on justice
Rollins went on to dismiss the complaint made by Lawson as being “the rantings of a white woman” and threatened to file a complaint with law enforcement against the reporters.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson later noted how Rollins has made race a major focus of her career, something he described as an “attack” on American justice.
“Every American citizen has a fundamental right to be judged equally under the laws of the United States, regardless of what they look like,” Carlson said last week. “DNA can play no role in our justice system.”
