As in real fucking stupid. This shit is simply unbelievable. The Tampa sheriff held a press conference to announce that they think they caught a serial killer. The person doing the sign language was fake. No shit. She had no idea what the hell she was doing.
You have to watch the video of her. It's fucking laughable. And this is from the story.
Hearing-impaired people tuning in to a news conference about the arrest of a suspected serial killer got a message of gibberish from an American Sign Language interpreter.
As if that wasn't bad enough this is not the first time this kind of stupid shit has happened."She sat up there and waved her arms like she was singing Jingle Bells," Rachell Settambrino, who is deaf and teaches American Sign Language at the University of South Florida, told the Tampa Bay Times through an interpreter.
Among the things Roberts signed, according to Settambrino, was the following: "Fifty-one hours ago, zero 12 22 (indecipherable) murder three minutes in 14 weeks ago in old (indecipherable) murder four five 55,000 plea 10 arrest murder bush (indecipherable) three age 24."
I mean god damnit how hard is it to get a qualified sign language person? This is just sloppy not caring bullshit. Typical Florida under DeSantis.It is the most recent example of an apparently unqualified signer appearing at news conferences. In September, as Hurricane Irma approached Florida and officials announced a mandatory evacuation, an interpreter in nearby Manatee County began signing words like "pizza," ''monster" and "bear," along with other gibberish.
