‘You’re always going to be a Mexican’: California teacher’s racist verbal attack on deputy sheriff caught on bodycam

‘You’re always going to be a Mexican’: California teacher’s racist verbal attack on deputy sheriff caught on bodycam

Footage of a teacher’s racist outburst to a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputy during a traffic stop has gone viral, after the incident was caught on bodycam.

After the unnamed woman was pulled over for using her phone while driving, she started to record and berate the officer, calling him a “murderer.”

“You’re a murderer. I started to record because you’re a murderer,” the woman said, as he informed her that her actions were against the law.

She then demanded to speak with his “supervisor,” continued to brand him a “murderer,” and told him she was a teacher, before taking aim at his race.

“Here you go, Mexican racist. You’re always going to be a Mexican. You’ll never be white,” she shouted, after receiving a ticket. “You’ll never be white, which is what you really want to be.”

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said in an interview with Fox News that he was “appalled” by the incident, adding, “You have one incident like George Floyd ... but some people want to label the entire profession as if everyone was a Derek Chauvin. It shows you that bigotry and racism comes in all colors and all ages.”

According to the sheriff’s department, the woman had previously made false statements against officers, and, on this occasion, went on to file a harassment complaint against the deputy she was caught harassing in the video.

Social media users called for her name to be made public, while others demanded she be fired from her position.

“I can just imagine the way she speaks to her Hispanic students!” commented one user.

Some commenters in the area local to the incident claimed the woman was a teacher at Los Angeles Southwest College, but this could not be confirmed.
