Video: Democrat Fakes PTSD After Being Pulled Over For Speeding

A New York Democrat, Ulster County Legislator Jennifer Schwartz Berky was caught speeding and a short time after police officer Gary Short pulls her over for doing 43 miles per hour in a 30-mile-per-hour zone while talking on her cellphone, she fakes a PTSD attack.

Zero Hedge reports that the 26-minute video of the May 2017 incident was released last Tuesday during an Ulster Town Board meeting and features a meltdown of epic proportions by Berky.

Zero Hedge:

After Berky failed to impress officer Short by casually mentioning “I work for the county government, I’m a county legislator,” she immediately shifted into the victim role and proceeded to have histrionic tantrum. “Please don’t give me a ticket, I’m broke,” Berky cried, adding “I’m completely broke, and if you tell people, it’s going to hurt me. I’m totally broke. I made $20,000 last year. Please don’t give me a ticket.”

Officer Short – a consummate professional throughout the encounter, returns to his squad car to run Berky’s information, when Berky gets out of her car and fakes a panic attack, while on the phone, claiming PTSD.

As Short issued her the speeding ticket, Berky told the officer, “I don’t trust you. I don’t feel safe here. Tell me what my rights are. I didn’t understand.”

“I’ve explained everything to you,” Short replied. “I’m not going to argue with you any longer.”

He then returns to his patrol car and the video ends.

According to Hudson Valley One, after the video was released to the public, Berky decided to apologize with a lame excuse.

 “The video released earlier this week of my Town of Ulster traffic stop captured a tough moment for me,” stated Berky. “Like so many working families, I too face tough times and stressful situations. As a professional, a public servant and a mother, I know my interaction with Police Officer Gary Short was unacceptable. I want to apologize to Officer Short and thank him for his patience and professionalism with me during a very difficult time.”

Berky, a Democrat, represents the city of Kingston in the county legislature. She is up for reelection Nov. 7.
