Man who asked black woman for ID at pool loses his job

UPROXX  Jasmine Edwards  Facebook

Edwards shared video of the ordeal on social media, where Bloom has been dubbed "Pool Patrol Paul".

Everything began when Bloom questioned Edwards about her address, since the pool in the Glenridge neighborhood was for residents of the community only.

Edwards, who claimed Bloom asked her for her ID because she is black, shot video after police arrived to help diffuse the situation. A video of the confrontation has received millions of views since Edwards posted it on her Facebook page on Wednesday.

In a statement, the firm said the interaction "does not reflect the core values of our Company, and the employee involved is no longer employed by the Company in any respect".

"Where does it say that I have to show an ID to use my own pool?"

Bloom's lawyer, John Vermitsky, told the New York Post that his client has been having "a very hard situation" because of the incident.

But Bloom was wrong about his neighbor: Abhulimen owns a house with her husband a few blocks away in the development, according to county property records. Responding officers appeared to side with Edwards, noting that there did not appear to be a rule requiring pool users to show ID.

Chuck Schumer appealed to Trump to pick Merrick Garland for Supreme Court
Mueller could all be used against him , even if the special counsel declines to accuse the president of obstruction of justice. With a narrow 51-49 GOP majority in the Senate , losing any Republican senator could begin to doom a nominee.

The Glenridge Homeowners Association announced Thursday that Bloom resigned from his position as the pool's chairman and board member, effective immediately. "Do you know what I'm saying?" she asked. He called the police, who eventually determined that Edwards did, in fact, have the appropriate access to the gated pool. The light on the scanner turns green and the door unlocks, the officer says. The mother, Jasmine Edwards, recorded the altercation with the cops, and it worked in her favor entirely. "A form of ID would have been helpful to validate", he says to the officer.

The woman responds, "It would be nice if you would apologize". Edwards again asked Bloom to apologize.

"They kind of make their way around sometimes", an unapologetic Bloom replied.

Vermitsky told the Journal that the incident started before Edwards began videotaping.

A sign on the wall says residents and their guests were allowed and must sign in, but Bloom was unsure if there was a lifeguard on duty to accept sign ins, given the holiday. "Normally, the pool would have had a sign-in sheet, where pool members list their name and address and which Mr Bloom could have referenced; unfortunately, the sign-in sheet was not set out that day", Bloom's attorney wrote in a letter.

Bloom then asked for an ID, and that's when the woman became angry, Vermitsky explained. "And so my goal here is to give you better expression of my full view as a person, and express my honest regret for the actions that I took that day". As you can see in the video above, the police were called to the scene. His company, Sonoco, also issued a statement.

"We are aware of a awful incident involving the actions of one of our employees outside of the workplace". The man, who served as chairman of the pool (whatever the hell that means), has been forced to resign from the homeowners association board and, much more importantly, has now lost his job, according to a statement released by the company. "On behalf of our more than 20,000 teammates around the world, we extend our sincerest apologies to all who have been hurt by this incident, especially Ms. Edwards and her family".
