A woman in a viral video demands that police officers provide her an escort out of a public park where several supporters of President Donald Trump have gathered.
The video begins with the unnamed woman berating the person doing the filming before a police officer begins to interact with her.
“I don’t want you to film me, and you need to stop filming me,” the woman says, as she turns towards one officer who appears to be explaining something to her.
Suddenly, she blurts, “I don’t wanna leave the park! My children were playing!”
“Okay, go ahead and play,” the officer responds. “It’s a public park, ma’am. We can’t force these people to leave,” he continued, gesturing.
“It’s a public park,” the officer repeats.
“Do they have a permit to be in this,” the woman says, as the officer continues to engage with her.
“I don’t need a permit because I’m three people,” the masked woman adds.

At that point, an unidentified man walks up to the two of them and appears to tell the officer, “You’re wasting your time.”
“What are you wasting your time for?” the man asked.
The woman then demanded to know how many people “were allowed” to be in the park “at this event.”
“I have no idea, call the town,” the officer responded, noting further that it’s “not a police issue.”
“It’s not a police issue?” asked the woman.
“It’s a town issue,” the officer says in response.
That appeared to mollify the woman for a moment, and the officer turned to walk away as she was engaged again by the unidentified man who asked why she was “making a scene.”
“You mean in America? Because I can say whatever I want. Because I’m an American!” the woman yelled.
That led the officer to re-engage with her as the unidentified man appeared to say she was wasting her time.
“I’m not wasting my time!” she responded, again raising her voice.
“You’re making a scene. You’re the only one out here…” the man replied, as the police officer intervened and asked him to disengage.
“God bless ya,” the unidentified man said as he walked out of the camera’s view while the officer began addressing the complaining woman again as a second police officer comes into view.
“This public display of force is not a scene?” the woman can then be heard asking, referencing the gathered Trump supporters. “I’m disgusted.”
As the officers continue engaging her, the woman spins around. “I was here! I was here peacefully exercising with my children, and they created a scene,” she said in reference to the Trump supporters.
“This is an intimidating show of force!” she said.
“How? How?” the first officer asked.
The woman’s response was unintelligible but the second officer noted that people gathered in the park were mostly carrying American and Trump flags.
“You guys are part of it! You’re complicit,” the woman responded.
“We’re part of it?” one of the officers asked.
“I want an escort out of here!” the woman demanded.
“We’re not giving you an escort,” the first officer answers as the woman walks back toward her nearby vehicle.
“You guys telling me I need to leave, they need to leave!” she yelled.
“I didn’t say you had to leave, it’s a public park,” the first officer said in response. “If you wanna enjoy the park, stay here and enjoy the park with your kids.”
“How come you’re only talking to me?” the woman screamed.
“Because you’re the only one yelling,” the first officer answered.
