Cleveland Officer Aaron McNamara Resigns Over Racist Remarks
A former Cleveland police officer has been exposed for making (extremely) racist remarks on social media that include being pro-slavery, blaming Tamir Rice’s death on his parents and calling black people “jungle monkeys” and “spooks.”
Aaron McNamara is a young auxiliary officer at the Fairview Park police department [Update: “was” an auxiliary officer with Fairview police; he resigned less than an hour after this story was posted], climbing up the law enforcement ladder as he finishes his college degree this semester with dreams of becoming a federal agent, he says.
He also has many thoughts about African Americans.
Over the past two years, McNamara has been commenting on YouTube videos — mostly about black people and law enforcement — regularly dropping racial and gay slurs, unambiguously expressing hatred towards minorities and anyone who dare not comply with what police say.
He calls black people in videos “jungle monkeys,” “spooks,” and worse. He commented on a video of a young black child swearing, saying “This is how cop killers are raised my friends.”
He’s also a fan of when police officers shoot and rough up non-compliant civilians. The comments appeared on his Youtube and Google+ accounts that were deleted yesterday (we’ll explain in a bit). Here’s a selection:
On Feb. 28 of this year, McNamara comments on a video called “Hood fight”:
“Abolishing slavery was the worst thing we could have done. These people should be exterminated.. Unbelievable.”
On a video called “State park fight”:
“I wish I could go back to their age and beat the living shit out of that ni**** with the tapout shirt.”
On November 28, in a story about the death of Tamir Rice, McNamara opined that “it is absolutely ridiculous that the police are criticized for this!” and that his parents should be charged with murder.
SMH…bye racist azz beyotch! Good luck finding a new job.
