A woman in Washington has been charged with a hate crime after a Facebook Live video of her ranting and threatening her Mexican neighbor went viral.
48-year-old Sandra Jametski trailed her neighbor while driving to her son's school. While in the car, she recorded a 10-minute long racist video about immigrants.
According to The Seattle Times, Jametski spoke of her neighbor, Delores, and how she needs to leave the country.
“This is America. We don’t drive like that here. We don’t drive like you’re in Mexico, lady,” Jametski said, referring to Delores. “This is my freakin’ neighborhood. This is where I grew up. I grew up here, not them. This woman don’t deserve to belong here, she don’t belong here. She don’t f**king belong here.”
The situation soon escalated to a threatening level when Jametski got out of her car and threatened the neighbor in the school parking lot.
“I went to this school!” she shouted. “You have no freaking right to go to this school! You don’t even have a right to be in this country… Keep laughing, s**c, because I’m going to be standing right here when your son comes out of school!”
Additionally, Jametski had a rant in the video in which she said that "Spanish privilege" allowed Hispanic people to get away with crimes.
Once Jametski was identified, she was arrested and charged with a hate crime in early December.
The high bail amount is due to Jametski’s criminal history, which includes convictions for second-degree assault and driving under the influence, said Senior Deputy Prosecutor Mike Hogan.
