It all started when a woman chased a Miami-Dade cop she said was speeding in the middle of the day for miles along the county’s busiest highways. When the cop stopped, the cellphone video she made of the encounter went viral.
Sound crazy? Not compared to what happened next.
The head of Miami’s police union – which doesn’t even represent the cop – began blasting the woman on Twitter and Facebook. He called Claudia Castillo a “#COPHater.” He posted a picture of her drinking a beer while steering a boat.
He posted Castillo’s business card and told people to call her at work and on her cellphone. He told police to be “aware of this woman.” But it didn’t end there.
