  • The original tweet as the camera rolls the woman ducks down behind a wall but continues to call cops

SF Gate reports that a spokeswoman for the San Francisco Police Department said officers have had no recent contact with an 8-year-old girl.

On her Instagram post, Austin wrote, "An 8-year-old selling water in front of her apartment building where she's lived her whole life is NOT a reason to call the Police".

The video shows Ettel explaining that the girl was "illegally selling water without a permit", all while assuming a grimace reminiscent of the one worn by Jennifer Schulte, or BBQ Becky, which went viral.

The girl's mother, Erin Austin, told CNN affiliate KGO that the video was taken shortly after Ettel came outside and confronted them.

When the video was posted on social media Saturday, it was soon shared extensively and resulted in backlash against the woman for what many considered an overreaction.

The incident comes about a month after a white woman called police on two black men for using a charcoal grill at Lake Merritt in Oakland. She added, "It was literally nonstop".

Colombia will next face Senegal on Thursday in Samara with a chance to win the group, while Poland will play Japan in Volgograd. The South Americans go into the final game knowing a win against Senegal will book them a place in the last 16.

As for Austin, she told USA Today that she recently lost her job and her daughter was trying to raise money because she wanted to go to Disneyland.

Austin and Rogers said that they would not be accepting Ettel's apology, NBC News reported. "I tried to be polite but I was stern", Ettel said in the interview.

The video of a woman dubbed "Permit Patty" went viral over the weekend.

However, Ettel denied there was a "racial component" to her reaction. "She never asked us to be quiet".

Women Grow, an organization promoting women-owned businesses in the cannabis space, has denounced Ettel, releasing a public statement saying that "she is not welcome to participate in our events".

But Austin claims otherwise, and says that Ettel did not cordially approach her or her daughter.

She thinks that some Saudi women will take a wait-and-see approach to learning to drive , rather than jumping straight in. Young women were spotted present in various exhibits where traffic officials instructed them on handlings of a auto .

Ausin said she was convinced the question was racially motivated, which is why she started recording Ettel's alleged call to police.

According to reports, Ettel spoke to police and asked if the family could sell the water and police told her it was illegal.

When told the news that she was gifted four tickets to Disneyland, the young girl was captured on video screaming with joy.

She said she only pretended to call police and that it wasn't over race, but because the girl and her mother were shouting loudly for hours about the water.

She said that she didn't close the windows of her office because it was too hot and that it wouldn't have stopped the noise. Horrible, horrible images and death threats. Austin posted a video on Instagram stories showing her daughter out selling water again. "Just the fact that she called the police on a child, that's evil, but to call on a child of color, knowing that people have been killing black kids".
