Talk about an overreaction.
“No wonder you people get shot, ” a Florida woman pulled over for speeding told police.
Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office clocked the woman going 51 mph in a 20 mph school zone near an elementary school.
In the video, the deputy is seen politely approaching the 62-year-old driver to tell her she is being cited for speeding.
But when the deputy hands her the $606 ticket, the furious woman yells back: “You know what? No wonder you people get shot, you’re absolute a*****es.”
The officer responds with his thanks, and the woman again aggressively responds: “You’re welcome.”
Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said the driver’s behavior on Sept.1 left him disappointed and angry.
“This is a deputy trying to make sure that children are safe and don’t get killed in a school zone,” he told WPTV.
“He was doing his job. And I think it’s totally unacceptable for somebody to talk to a deputy or any law enforcement officer like that, when that’s what they are trying to do to protect our children.”
