Williams, a nearly 30-year veteran at the department said he was saddened by the actions of the officers, but would have no tolerance for this type of behavior.

"Today is a challenging day for me because as your police chief, one of my first major tasks is to announce the termination of three veteran police officers," Williams said.


30 year veteran?! Yeah, you've seen and heard all this more than once.
 
2020-06-24 7:26:53 PM  
Did he get fired for what he said, or for not making sure that the dash cam "malfunctioned" for that particular brief moment?
 
2020-06-24 7:36:02 PM  
Editor's note: This article contains extremely graphic and racist language, reader discretion is advised.
Your warning was a bit late with a headline like that.
 
2020-06-24 7:38:25 PM  
Fired?
OK.
I guess that is a start, albeit a piss poor one.
I would imagine that any semi competent, non comatose DA could find more than a few charges to bring.

I would say meh, N.C., business as usual but this is very different given the constraints of the law.
This is an almost unimaginable  amount openness.

Somebody now has a target on his back and a price on his head.

If this happened in any other country, AFTER multiple police murders and national protests, it would be unthinkable NOT to have top-to-bottom nationwide police reforms.

The fact that there isn't says to me that people at the top of American government find this behaviour acceptable.

You're the real racist for noticing their expressed desire to slaughter black people and murder black public officials.

Sounds like an armed and dangerous individual committed a hate crime, and was conspiring to carry out violence, and again, not arrested, only fired.

They condone illegal actions when they do not arrest those who participate.

Yeah, I also picked up on that.  Where are the conspiracy to commit a felony charges?

Good, now indict them for conspiracy to commit murder.

Taken out of context some parts of that conversation you would think members of the KKK or some Neo Nazi organization were spouting them.

Alas, they were our 'heroes' in blue.

Put them on the Bad Cop Registry so they can't be hired in the next town over.

You say there is no Bad Copy Registry?  Not a problem.  As I had previously recommended, we can just add a Bad Cop category to the sex offender registry.  The nationwide infrastructure is already in place and adding a new field should be easy enough.  Plus, bad cops should be treated just like pedos and rapists.
 
2020-06-24 8:56:16 PM  
Firing is too good.  They should have investigated every person they associate with, on and off duty. Sooner or later you find the nest.

Being ignored by every. Single. Federal. Law. Enforcement. Agency. In the Nation.

Which means they are looking the other way.

Ergo: they condone it.

And for the fed pigs monitoring this. Do your f#$king jobs.
 
2020-06-24 8:57:04 PM  
That being said isn't nearly as surprising to me as it ought to be, but holy shiat, we have problems. I know, understatement of the minute. I'll probably just tell the grandkids this year was "not that great" when I'm old and recreationally pooping in a bag.

I spent 5 years living in Wilmington NC. Everyone loves to say it's a lovely charming friendly Southern city. It's not. You don't have to scratch too deep beneath the surface to find a town full of those same monsters.

And you might be surprised that I wouldn't be surprised by that knowledge at all.

Let's all get surprised together.

I can promise you Chief Williams has heard lots and lots of racial slurs, threats, etc. Being, you know, African American.

You forgot criminal.  Both conversations were explicit, racist, and criminal in context.  These farkers don't deserve to get fired unless it's out of a cannon and into a prison cell.

MAKE COPS MANDATORY REPORTERS OF POLICE MISCONDUCT NOW!!!

Cops who fail to report another officer's misconduct should be civilly and criminally liable as though they did it themselves.

Hence the case review, and presumably, any incident reports going back 30 years.

If they were key testimony (and after 30 years, how could they not?) against anybody sitting in prison for felony whatever, there are gonna be a lot of new appeals.
