Hearing-impaired people tuning in to a news conference about the arrest of a suspected serial killer last week in Florida got a message of gibberish from an American Sign Language interpreter.
As Tampa police Chief Brian Dugan announced the arrest of Howell Donaldson Wednesday night, interpreter Derlyn Roberts was there beside him, making signs that made no sense.

"Tampa Police Department spokeswoman Janelle McGregor told the Tampa Bay Times officials are conducting a review because they didnt even request an interpreter for the Nov. 28 news conference."
>>In 2013 in South Africa, a fake interpreter appeared beside former President Barack Obama and other world leaders during a memorial service for Nelson Mandela, apparently signing gibberish. He later said he is schizophrenic and had seen angels descending in the stadium where the event took place.
Devils and demons more likely
If you can, find a video of this woman at the press conference. It is stunningly incompetent. As one who does not sign, even I could tell this was a bunch ‘o crap.
The ASL Grammar Police?....
Tsk tsk tsk.... all these racist deaf people thinking their needs override the moral mandate for the equitable distribution of jobs... demanding that someone be “qualified” and “competent” is just a dog whistle for White supremacy. /s
One of the best animated GIFs of all time.
great so the police just let anyone walk in and appear on camera with them without even confirming the person is supposed to be there?
“Tampas chief of police, who is responsible for my safety ...”
Um, no, he isn’t. That would be your responsibility, cupcake.
Looks like Roberts knew some sign language, and a lot of words, but got the syntax all wrong. That’s not total “gibberish.”
She’s a RIOT! Thanks for the link.
Certainly looks like her...although she’s well dressed when next to the white guy.
“...demanding that someone be qualified and competent is just a dog whistle for White supremacy. /s”
The sarcasm tag is inappropriate. The SJW really believe hiring based on qualifications and merit is racist and that the terms qualified and competent ARE racial dog whistles.
But it was authentic ghetto gibberish.
