Those balding dudes in ties are making faces like they know that something in the milk ain’t doing sign language right.
Tampa Bay Times says that on November 28, the police department held a news conference about the arrest of a possible serial killer who has been terrorizing the neighborhood of Seminole Heights. The news conference co-starred an American sign language interpreter who was supposed to be interpreting that cop’s words for the hearing impaired. But the deaf people who watched had the same reaction that those of us who can hear have when we listen to Ozzy Osbourne. They had no idea what the fuck she was saying. She was signing pure gibberish.
After deaf advocacy groups let the Tampa Police Department know that they should get a refund for their ASL interpreter because she wasn’t interpreting shit, they told the media that they didn’t exactly request an interpreter for the press conference. She just showed up, said she was the ASL interpreter and so they put her in front of the camera. Because who care about checking credentials and shit? The police department says they’re looking into who sent her and how she got there. And also, why? No word if the police department is also going to investigate their own buffoonery for letting this happen.
Meanwhile, the fraudulent ASL interpreter has been ID’d as Derlyn Roberts, and she’s dealt with the Tampa Police Department before. But the last time she dealt with them was when she was arrested for organized fraud. She was convicted in 2012 and just got out of prison last year. And she struck again!
The hearing impaired must’ve wondered what the Redwood Forest and the New York island had to do with a serial killer in Tampa, because I’m pretty sure she’s doing the moves for This Land Was Made For You And Me. I’m also pretty sure that she threw up signs for about six gangs and also hit on all of us by doing the “peen” in “hole” sign.
And once the investigation wraps up, I’m sure officials will announce that they’re not going to press charges against Derlyn. Instead, they’re going to honor her for perfectly upholding Florida’s state motto: Keep fuckery alive!
