Bravo, who witnessed everything that happened, was so outraged by the employee’s behavior that he grabbed his cell phone and started recording the episode.

He emphasized that he was trying to remain neutral and simply record what was happening.

The lady was trying to tell the employee that she needed to send a certified letter.

Every time the woman explained that she did not speak English and tried to describe what she needed, the employee responded that she should explain in English.

Finally, the lady said that she did not speak English and the worker’s response was simply: «Then get out,» Bravo said in his sworn statement at the police station.

“That affected me as a Latino and Hispanic, because you saw the hatred and the obvious discrimination that existed,” Bravo recalled.

When she realized she was being recorded, the employee shouted that she did not «Care about being recorded.»

However, after a few seconds she got angry, lunged at Bravo and forcibly snatched his phone away from him.
