A woman who claimed to be teacher was caught on video calling a sheriff’s deputy a ‘Mexican racist’ and ‘murderer’ who would ‘never be white’ during a traffic stop. Newly released body camera footage of her racist tirade last month has gone viral.
The deputy pulled the woman over in San Dimas, California, on April 23 for using her cell phone while driving. As the deputy approached the woman, whose face was blurred in the video, she claimed she was stopped for driving two miles per hour under the speed limit.
Once the deputy informed her that the traffic stop was due to her using her phone, she said she was recording him because he scared her and repeatedly called him a ‘murderer’ and ‘racist Mexican’.
‘You’re always going to be a Mexican,’ she told the deputy, who was also not identified. ‘You’ll never be white, which is what you really want to be. You want to be white.’
The woman accused the deputy of ‘threatening to kill me and my son’ and asked the deputy to call his supervisor ‘because you’re a murderer’.
‘You scared me and made me feel that you were going to murder me,’ the woman said.
She also seemed to convey that she believed she was more respectable than the deputy.
‘I’m perfectly legal and I’m a teacher,’ she said.
The deputy remained calm despite the verbal attacks and took down her information from a picture she had of her driver’s license.
As the woman continued call him nasty names, the deputy handed her a paper and said, ‘There you go, dear, have a good day.’
Los Angeles Southwest College said on Twitter that the woman may have worked for the school in 2017.
‘This Deputy exemplifies the core values of our Department,’ Villanueva wrote. ‘His demeanor during this traffic stop is just an example of professionalism and patience our @LASDHQ Deputies have.’
