A California teacher’s racist outburst towards a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputy during a traffic stop has gone viral after the incident was caught on bodycam footage.
After the unnamed woman was pulled over for using her phone while driving, she started to record and berate the deputy sheriff, calling him a “murderer.”
“You’re a murderer. I started to record because you’re a murderer,” the woman said, as the deputy sheriff informed her that it is against the law to use your cell phone while driving.
The woman then demanded to speak with the deputy sheriff’s “supervisor,” continued to brand him a “murderer,” and informed him that she was a teacher, before taking aim at the law enforcement officer’s 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 he was “appalled” by the incident in an interview with Fox News, 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, racism comes in all, colors and all ages.”
According to the sheriff’s department, the woman – who has not been named – has previously made false statements against deputies and she went on to file a ‘harassment complaint’ against the deputy she was caught racially harassing in the video.
Social media users called for the teacher’s name to be made public, while others demanded that she be fired from her position.
Do we know this vile woman’s name?

Wow. This is who is teaching children? She needs to be removed from her position, immediately! She was flat out lying. Amazing what people think they can get away with!

This woman is VILE. She’s the perfect example of a crazy, racist, disgusting, intolerant human being. Bravo to the officer for maintaining his calm demeanor in the face of such an offensive onslaught. Shame on her.

“I can just imagine the way she speaks to her Hispanic students!” commented one user.
Some users in the local area claimed that the woman was a teacher at Los Angeles Southwest College, however they could not be confirmed.
