Santa Paula volunteer cop suspended over video rant against cyclists
“I hate bicyclists, every single one of them,” she said before mocking the clothes and demeanor of every single two-wheeled rider they passed.
“Like you’ve never thought about it …,” the caption stated.
Cyclist “Shaioved” suggested that Weintraub should be placed on bicycle patrol.
At first, despite a wave of criticism, a spokesman stated that reserve officer Weintraub did some “great satire videos in her personal spare time.”
The clip was deleted from Weintraub’s YouTube channel Saturday morning.
“It was never meant to be hurtful or harmful in anyway. I am a human being. I made a mistake. I have learned from this and ask for your forgiveness,” she wrote.
Police Chief Steve McLean said he accepted Laura Weintraub’s resignation letter on Sunday.
