Teacher repeatedly calls LAPD officer a “murderer” during routine traffic stop

A Hispanic officer in California pulled over a woman who was using her cell phone while driving – which is against the law in California. 

The body camera footage shows the exchange in which it appears the woman calls the officer “a murderer.” The exchange took place in San Dimas, California.

The video was posted by Fox News reporter Bill Melugin, who alleged that he knows who the woman is but is choosing not to identify her. The officer started to tell the woman: “I pulled you over because…” – “You’re a murderer,” the driver interjected, while also filming the exchange. Later in the video, the woman can be heard saying, “can you call your supervisor?” The driver then goes on to accuse the deputy of “harassing” her. She said: “You scared me and made me think you were going to murder me.” “Ok, well, I’m sorry you feel that way,” he replied. Later in the video, she says, “I’m perfectly legal and I’m a teacher.” “Congratulations,” the deputy tells her.

She continues to claim: “You’re threatening to kill me and my son,” who was in the car with her. The deputy then goes on to ask her if the car is her own. “Yes, it is. You’re trying to say I stole my car because you’re jealous? Is that what that’s about?” The deputy’s boss comes to the scene and tells the woman that she was pulled over for using her phone while driving. “You’ll always be Mexican, you’ll never be white, which is what you really want to be,” she says as he hands over the ticket, telling her to “have a good day”. LA County Sherriff Alex Villanueva said that he’s “proud of his deputy for staying calm and professional during this interaction”.
