"You'll never be white": Latino cop endures racist tirade during traffic stop

An overnight viral sensation with nearly four million views as I write this at 10:30 a.m. ET. Partly that’s due to the power of Fox News, which ran the video during Tucker Carlson’s show. And partly it’s because the many people who sympathize with cops for what they endure in an average day wanted to show off the professionalism of one officer in a stressful situation. Normally when footage of traffic stops gets public attention it’s because the police abused the driver. Not this time. Rather the opposite.

But mainly it’s gone viral because the woman who was stopped is just *that* obnoxious. You have to see it to believe it.

Can you guess in advance what she does for a living? Right:

The woman reportedly filed a complaint against the deputy after the incident accusing him of harassment. Unless the footage below has been *very* selectively edited, there’s only one person who’s guilty of harassment and it ain’t him. As far as we can tell, he didn’t even ring her up for driving without a license, just for being on her phone while behind the wheel.

If I were her, I’d be dialing up Melugin and begging him not to continue reporting on this. If he does, she’s going to be Internet-famous. And being Internet-famous is almost always a very bad thing.

Anyway, give this guy a promotion.
