Sandra Jametski charged with hate-crime after posting Facebook Live
In a video posted on Facebook, the narrator seems to grow angrier and angrier as she tails a woman in her car while railing against “Spanish privilege,” criticizing the woman’s driving as un-American and repeatedly saying that the woman and her family don’t belong here.
“This is America. We don’t drive like that here. We don’t drive like you’re in Mexico, lady,” a female voice is heard saying on the video that is a critical piece of evidence in an unusual hate-crime case.
As the driver in front makes her way to Rainier Prep Academy near White Center, the voice on the video continues: “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 (expletive) belong here.”
That 48-year-old Sandra Jametski has been held on $500,000 bail since her malicious harassment arrest early last month. King County prosecutors say she followed a neighbor as the neighbor drove to her child’s school – and that she recorded her racist rant on her cell phone.
Charging documents say Jametski continued recording as she confronted the neighbor at the school. Prosecutors say Jametski blamed one of the woman’s children for causing a car accident a year earlier, though police records show Jametski was at fault.
Jametski has pleaded not guilty. Her attorney declined to discuss the case.
