12 things that make me wanna punch Maria Rodriguez-Gregg in the face
Video courtesy of the Trentonian
If you haven't seen the video of the Assemblywoman Maria Rodriguez-Gregg being pulled over yet, run, don't walk to watch it. There's so much I wanna say about the video, but her attitude pretty much sums it up.
Yeah, I am a defender of law enforcement, but if they're doing something that's an abuse of power or out of bounds, I'll be the first to point it out. In this case, I'm totally team cop.
Editor's note: Judi's referring to the story of Assemblywoman Maria Rodriguez-Gregg, who was rear-ended earlier this year and eventually arrested on a DWI charge, in an incident captured on a bodycam video. Officers said they smelled marijuana in her car — a point she argued with profanity and screaming, reminding the officers repeatedly she's an assemblywoman. Her attorney told the Trentonian no marijuana was found in her system, but a "borderline" amount of alcohol was. Her case has not yet been heard in court.
The video was made available to New Jersey 101.5 by the Trentonian.
This woman deserved much more than being arrested. She deserved a punch in the face.
Here are the things that make you wanna be the puncher and make her the punchee.
- The "owwwmy neck" thing — So bogus ... and you notice she never mentions it again.
- The "I was just in the hospital I don't need this s**t" thing — Who cares? It's not the police officers fault that this accident happened.
- The checking the rear view mirror right after an accident thing — Who needs to look stunning after being rear-ended? Especially if you're supposedly "injured?"
- The Putting on lip gloss at a traffic stop thing — See number 3, above.
- The calling her lawyer from the road thing — Only people who think they're big shots do this. It's so obnoxious.
- The shrill voice thing — You can tell this woman is a spoiled brat, used to yelling at people to get her way. If you were married to her you'd shoot yourself.
- The potty mouth thing — You're an assemblywoman and you need them to know how important you are, and this is the language you use?
- The race card thing — She implies it's worse to harass her cause she's a "Latina." What does that have to do with anything?
- The sexism card thing — See 8, above. Replace "Latina" with "Woman"
- The "Do you know who I am?" thing — Why should she get special treatment because she's assemblywoman?
- Being oppositional from the get go — Refused to do ANYTHING the officer said. Not. One. Thing.
- The lame excuse thing — Cigars? Really? Your mom wouldn't even believe you. You want a cop to?
