NBC News- A remarkably restrained Florida sheriff's deputy calmly thanked an angry driver he'd pulled over for speeding and walked away after she told him: "You know what? No wonder you people get shot."
In the video, the deputy explains that the woman has been pulled over for driving 51 mph in a 20-mph school zone.
She spends much of the stop begging to get off with a warning, but the deputy rejects her request on the grounds that she was speeding through a school zone.
Near the end, after getting the ticket, she says, "You know what? No wonder you people get shot. You're absolute a--holes."
To which the deputy calmly responds: "OK, thank you ma'am. I appreciate that."
He then tells her to "drive safe."
It's hard to complain when you get pulled over going 30 MPH over the speed limit, but let me ask you this. Has being 100% guilty ever stopped you from bitching about the cops before? Now, I don't think you are supposed to imply that police officers get shot because they are assholes, and you definitely aren't supposed to just flat out state that police officers get shot because they are assholes, but we have all had some version of this thought. We have all seen the sirens going behind us, and regardless of our varying degrees of culpability, we have all let out an audible "you got to be fucking kidding me". So yeah, this woman is just some trashy twat from Florida, but all she did was find the most politically incorrect way of saying what we all think. Cops get shot because they are an inconvenience. Whether you get busted cruising through a soft yellow light, or get caught going double the speed limit, law enforcement is just a necessary nuisance. I am not saying that's a GOOD reason to fire a loaded pistol at them, but this lady is absolutely correct in saying that it is a reason nonetheless.
Forget the whole "cops deserve to get shot" thing, I think the main takeaway from this video is that all you have to do is rant and rave like a petulant child to get a cop to stop talking down to you. Was no one going to tell me this? I had to learn from a toothless, inbred hick from Florida that talked to a traffic cop like Happy Gilmore (Also See: Me) talks to his clubs during a terrible round of golf? I have been going with the "Yes sir. I'm sorry sir. Never happen again sir" strategy for years and all it has resulted in was a bunch of police officers talking to me like a fucking kindergartener that shit his pants after drawing on the wall with crayons. Who knew all you had to do to get some respect from law enforcement was cuss like a sailor and indirectly threaten their lives. Hell, I am probably a barrel of 'fucks' away from a clean record. Might not be so fast to come to a complete stop at that 'Yield' sign when I have this ace of spades in my back pocket.
