New York: Samantha Shader is accused of hurling a Molotov cocktail at an NYPD van full of police during a George Floyd protest, and she claimed a trio of “black” strangers made her do it. Prosecutors say the bottle failed to ignite because she used toilet paper instead of a rag as the fuse. The facts do not support her story. Tim Amerman, a white man who is a painter and guitar player, admitted he supplied Shader with a number of bottles to throw at police and counter-protesters.

Did Samantha Shader Catskill upstate NY woman conspire with Tim Amerman Saugerties, NY man to exact terrorism? Woman with alleged ties to Antifa insists molotov cocktails were given to her by 3 black protesters.

A white upstate NY woman accused of hurling a Molotov cocktail at a police van during recent BLM protests in Brooklyn has claimed a trio of ‘black’ strangers who ‘made her do it’, according to new court papers. The assertion contradicts authorities’ allegations that a recently arrested Saugerties, NY man supplying the ‘activist’ with the incendiary devices.  

The claims come despite investigators saying Samantha Shader, 27, of the Catskills, driving to Brooklyn’s Crown Heights with her younger sister, Darian, 21, in a car already loaded with empty glass bottles, including the Bulleit whiskey bottle she is charged with throwing at the van on May 30.

Devices allegedly supplied to her by newly accused accomplice, Tim Amerman, 29, a painter and guitar player who was arrested earlier this week.

‘I found a few more glass bottles Than I thought I had, Though still not many,’ the Saugerties man wrote to the Shader sisters in a note found in their car, the feds say in the complaint against him unsealed Saturday in court papers.

‘Wish I had more,’ he wrote. ‘BE SAFE Please. Really[.] Good Luck, – Love Tim.’

Only acted after being approached by 3 black protesters? 

Captured on video flinging the devices, Shader upon her arrest admitted to throwing the Molotov cocktail. Shader now claims only partaking in the ’terrorist’ act after ‘she was approached on the street and given ‘the bottle’ by a black male, who was in a group with one other black male and a black woman,’ according to filed papers.

She even described the trio, saying the man who handed her the bottle was a ‘thicker guy’ with hair in ‘skinny dreads’ of different colors, the papers say cited by the nypost.

The other man was smaller and wore a hat, and the woman was thin with ‘poofy’ hair in a ponytail, Shader allegedly claimed.

‘Shader stated that the man who handed her the bottle told her that they were going to prove a point, and [Shader] stated she felt important at the time she took the bottle because she was the only white person in the area,’ the papers say.

The flung bottle shattered the parked van’s rear two windows but failed to ignite because Shader had used toilet paper instead of a rag as a fuse, prosecutors have alleged.

During Amerman’s arrest, investigators cited fingerprints being on the note found in his friend, Shader’s possession, with the man allegedly admitting it was his note, according to feds. 

Both friends had previously posted anti-cop memes and insults on Facebook, the feds added.

25 to 30 years in the joint should calm this heathen down.

Good luck with that one.
