S.C. Cop to Black Kids- “Don’t Go to Church and Get Hurt”

Racist SC CopThe video above was recorded on Monday in a subdivision of West Ashle and has since gone viral. It has caused a great deal of concern, as the officer in the video makes a statement that appears to be either threatening or a tasteless taunt, neither of which lie within the jurisdiction of ‘protecting and serving’.

As the officer drives through their neighborhood, the children begin shouting obscenities at him. The cause of this is unknown. There may be some history between this cop and this community that prompted the initial confrontation. It could be that there was no specific incident(s) which prompted the children’s behavior, and that it is merely a product of outrage as tensions run high over both racial and policing issues. Or it might just be a bunch of bratty kids in need of some better parental guidance. We just don’t know.

What we do know is that regardless of what motivated a group of children to start hurling obscenities at this patrolman, his response was not professional, appropriate or acceptable from any standpoint. Officers of the law have a duty to represent their communities in the most respectable manner possible. Even when…no, especially when those communities have lost faith in law enforcement.

Taunting these children by rubbing a recent mass-killing of blacks in their face is absolutely inappropriate. We need not investigate the motivations of the children involved to know that the officer involved was way out of line. Both ethically and professionally.

A department spokesman says there is already an investigation into the officers actions underway.

“(We will) continue to demonstrate through both words and actions that we are here to provide safety, security and comfort to the families, church and community,” says Charles Francis, the departments spokesman.

Are these just empty words, considering the police rarely find themselves guilty of their incompetence and criminal behavior?
