A sign language interpreter at a local news conference in Tampa, Florida communicated in completely indecipherable sentences. The briefing, set up to discuss the recent arrest of Howell Donaldson on Wednesday night, became the subject of criticism after members of the area’s deaf community said they could not understand the translation at all. Now, police say they are not even sure how the interpreter got there in the first place.
