Broward County Cop Seen On Bodycam Calling Black Man “Boy” And Cursing
Police will never get the respect they think they so richly entitled to and it’s their own damn fault.
This story in the Miami Herald will illustrate exactly why this is. Deputy James Cady, an officer with a sordid history of making false arrests, is seen on bodycam footage berating a Black man, Allen Floyd, who is holding his infant son. Broward County’s bacon-wrapped-boy-in-blue cursed at Floyd repeatedly and called him “boy” more times than we can count.
The incident happened in July of 2017 but only became public knowledge last month.
Public defender Howard Finkelstein wrote a letter to new Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony to let it be known that Cady is a piece of s#!t who is out of order. He didn’t use those exact words, but that’s our less-tempered interpretation.
“Deputy Cady’s verbal assault coupled with him choking an otherwise cooperative bystander can only be characterized as unlawful touching,” Finkelstein wrote. “In addition, Deputy Cady’s use of the term “boy” is offensive, condescending and demeaning. It carries racial connotations when used while addressing an adult black male.”
Cady has been under investigation by Internal Affairs since 2003 for one reason or another, not so surprisingly, none of those investigations resulted in any significant discipline.
