Re: Jody David Armour

Jody Armour was interviewed about a viral body camera video of a motorist unleashing a racist tirade against a deputy and calling him a “murderer” during a traffic stop in San Dimas. “It assumes that [she knew] what the motivations of this particular [deputy] are,” he said the motorist's actions. “It is unfortunate.”
