A woman could hear a verbal attack by a Los Angeles County sheriff’s office with racist slander during a standard traffic stop in camera footage, exclusively obtained by Bill Melugin of Fox News and featured on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Monday.
Hostility against cops in the United States raised its ugly head during a traffic stop last month when a police officer stopped a woman who appeared to be using her cell phone while driving.
The 14-year-old career employee told Fox News’s Bill Melugin that he recorded the interaction on both his official telegraph issued by the department and a personal one he bought to “protect himself from false claims”
As the unidentified officer approached the window, the driver began recording it on his cell phone before saying, “I started recording because you’re a killer.”

When the police officer calmly explained that the woman “could not be on your mobile phone while driving” and wanted to see her identification, the driver fired, “This is in my apartment and I am completely legal and I am a teacher. “
The interaction took a turn for the worse when the woman called the policeman a “Mexican racist.”
“You’ll always be Mexican,” she is heard to say. “You’ll never be white. You know that, don’t you?”
Melugin called the exchange “a class example of the hostility some officers there encounter in the streets.”
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva told Fox News he was “horrified” by what he saw in the video, but praised his deputy for remaining professional.
“She claims to be a teacher. I’m not so sure where she teaches … but if she presents her profession, is that an accusation about her profession and the caliber of the people?” Villanueva asked.
“You have an incident like George Floyd … but some people want to label the whole profession as if they were all Derek Chauvin. It shows you that bigotry, racism come in all colors, and all ages – that’s proof of that. If you want to call all MPs murderers, unfortunately, you are doing exactly the same thing you are accusing other people of doing against yourself. “

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News that the woman in the video called the police and filed a complaint of harassment against the deputy immediately after the incident. The department also said that the woman has a history of making false allegations against MPs.
Fox News identified the woman, but she did not respond to numerous requests from the network for comment.
