FLORIDA: The report stated that the lawman turned the other cheek at a driver who made an ass of herself. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office posted dash-cam video of a deputy pulling over a woman going 50 mph in a 20 mph school zone. “No wonder you people get shot. You’re absolute ass holes,” Joy Feinberg, 62, snapped at the deputy. Fortunately, the deputy only calmly replied: “Thank you Ma’am,” before writing her a speeding ticket.
