White Cop Fired For Racist Posts About Black Drivers
A white Georgia cop has been terminated after posting a series of racist Facebook posts about Black motorists. The AJC reports that an internal affairs investigation by the sheriff’s department revealed the officer posted many racist and sexist memes, comments and photos on his personal social media account.
Another officer who was revealed to be posting racist comments abruptly resigned from the police agency.
The two officers — both former McIntosh County sheriff’s deputies — served on the department’s special traffic unit that patrols I-95 in South Georgia. The two officers sent offensive jokes back and forth through the Facebook’s messaging service and used texting shorthand “lol” to indicate laughter.
One joke referred to “colored people” and another used the word “n—— ,” according to records reviewed by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Another showed an image of Martin Luther King Jr. and denigrated his most famous speech.
“I have a dream. That one day my people will not act like animals,” posted Brant Gaither, the McIntosh deputy who was terminated July 25.
Yesterday, we reported an Atlanta elementary school teacher’s aide was fired after posting racist comments on Facebook that described First Lady Michelle Obama as a gorilla.
What happens on the internet can and will get you fired!
