A 62-year-old Florida driver perfectly expressed the insane hatred toward police permeating the nation in recent days, telling a police officer who had pulled her over for speeding, “No wonder you people get shot.”
The driver was allegedly speeding at 51 mph in a 20 mph zone near Hagen Ranch Elementary in Boynton Beach, Florida, when the deputy pulled her over. According to WPTV, the encounter happened as follows:
Deputy: Ma’am, ma’am.
Deputy: You are being cited for speeding. This explains what your options are. Drive safe.
Driver: You know what? No wonder you people get shot. You’re absolute “a**holes”
Deputy: OK, thank you ma’am. I appreciate that.
Driver: You’re welcome. Have a nice day.
Deputy: Drive safe.
The deputy returned to his car and later posted the incident on Twitter:
