A woman allegedly demanding reparations at an Ohio Target checkout was slapped in the face by a security guard and placed under arrest.
“This is my Rosa Parks moment,” Karen Ivery, 37, told police officers after a confrontation at a Blue Ash Target last year, according to a New York Post report.
Ivery’s statement to police came after a dramatic scene unfolded at the store, where she attempted to pay her $1,000 grocery bill by demanding redress from the store’s manager.

Monitoring still the breakthrough
According to the police report, Ivery asked the Target cashier to speak to a manager when she was checking out her groceries and brought up reparations several times during their encounter. When the manager arrived, Ivery asked for amends before getting angry and “aggressively” approaching the manager.
“Ivery constantly berated her about reparations and her privileged life” while approaching the manager, the report said.

Zach Cotter, a 28-year-old loss prevention officer, then contacted Ivery to try to defuse the situation and asked the angry customer to calm down and leave the store. But the loss prevention officer’s intervention only resulted in Ivery becoming even more angry, and the screaming customer allegedly followed Cotter into his office.
As Cotter attempted to shut the door to his office behind him, Ivery followed and forced himself in, resulting in the loss prevention officer delivering a punch that landed squarely in the client’s face, according to a report and video of the incident.

Surveillance footage of the altercation shows the moment Cotter landed the punch that caused Ivery to fall to the ground.
Police arriving at the scene reviewed the footage and determined that Ivery was the “aggressor” in the situation and arrested her.
“Ivery was confrontational with officers at the scene and would not explain her actions,” the police report said.

Monitoring still by officials on site
Bodycam footage of Ivery’s interaction with police captured the customer, who compared her situation to Rosa Parks and told officers she was calling the manager “so we can have a more detailed chat about how money works and how the supply works and.” how our community works in a very wrong way.”
Ivery was eventually sentenced to one day in jail and a $110 fine for disorderly conduct.
