Police departments all around the country are having trouble getting in touch with reality as multiple scandals have been popping up left, right, and center. From fake "thank you" cards to a shocking video of an officer crying over her egg McMuffin, I think they're really starting to lose it out here.
As the video went viral, more and more people jumped in to bring the officer back to reality.
But now she's hit back - saying that she's 'sick of people being mean'.
Read on to watch the full video for yourselves to see if you think she was overreacting...
As people continue to fight for their lives, others are fighting for much less serious problems...

But how did we initially get here?

Footage of George's "arrest" quickly circulated on social media...

After nearly ten minutes, George was completely unresponsive.

Thousands upon thousands of people have been taking to the streets in protest...

Protests have been taking place all over the world.

Tensions surrounding our police force are continuing to escalate.

In some cases, police officers are losing more and more respect.While countless officers have been commended for their solidarity during the riots, some police forces have come under serious fire.

But one Twitter scandal has taken over recently and it involves one particular video.
via: TwitterThe two-minute clip shows a police officer in her car having a breakdown because she couldn't see McDonald workers preparing her meal.
"They just handed me a coffee... And that's it."
via: TwitterShe started getting incredibly emotional that she didn't get her English breakfast meal and later on in the video, starts crying over it.
You know what? I'll give her one thing.
via: TwitterShe claims she had just come off a shift and she was tired and hungry, and I understand what that can do to a person, but imagine posting this video with that much confidence.
And Twitter users couldn't help but rip into her.

You seriously can't make this stuff up anymore...We all have to wait for our orders, officer. It ain't just you.

But now she's hit back.And she claims that she's 'sick of people being mean'.
'Everyone has lost the point'.Not my words of course, but the words of Officer Talbert - who has admitted some of the comments were funny, but not all of them.
She spoke to Buzzfeed.And in an interview with Buzzfeed, she said:
I’m not bitching. I think that s**t's funny. 'Cop Karen' — whoever did that, that’s funny. 'Molly McMuffin', someone called me. That's funny! I’d make money if I was that funny.
It appears that Stacy Talbert, the officer crying over a McMuffin, filed a lawsuit against the department she was f… https://t.co/FXfcRMDubg— Cory James (@Cory James)1592492786.0
It really had nothing to do with McDonald’s and the food. That was just what triggered it. This feeling we feel in law enforcement constantly. You’re always looking, we're arching our necks, to make sure everything is safe not just for you, but for everyone else. There are times I wish I could just be normal and not have to feel like that. Everyone completely lost the point except for law enforcement. We all feel that way except I voiced it.
'I'm sick of people being mean'.
