When it became clear her attempts to avoid a speeding ticket were futile, a Florida woman had some choice words for the deputy who pulled her over in Boynton Beach: "No wonder you people get shot." The Palm Beach Post reports an unidentified deputy with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office pulled over Joy Feinberg, 62, on Sept. 1 for allegedly driving 51mph in a 20mph school zone. A lengthy dashcam video of the encounter shows Feinberg begging to be let off with a warning, and when the deputy returns to hand over a $606 ticket, she clearly isn't pleased. "You're absolute a--holes," she adds. The officer's response: "OK, thank you ma'am. I appreciate that." He then tells her to "drive safe."
But the encounter doesn't end there, per WSVN. When the deputy tells Feinberg she'll have to do a driver's license re-examination, she responds, "Do you have the power to do that?" He says he does, and she replies, "Well, you're a double a--hole." "This is a deputy trying to make sure that children are safe and don't get killed in a school zone. He was doing his job," Sheriff Ric Bradshaw tells WPTV. Bradshaw adds the incident is especially disappointing because it reflects a national trend of disrespect for police officers. On Twitter, however, support for the deputy is high. "Be safe! You are appreciated and always professional," reads one tweet, per NBC News.
