Dallas Officers Call Rookie Cops “Cowards”, Criticize Police Shootings

The same night five police officers in Dallas, Texas were killed by Micah Johnson, two on-duty officers were calling fellow officers ‘cowards’ on a podcast.

“It shows they weren’t doing their job that night. There were a lot of officers with heroic actions that night and these guys instead were doing a podcast,” said President of the Dallas Police Association, Ron Pinkston.

Officers Gregory Watkins and Margus McCuin called into “Your World, My View Podcast” hosted by Atlanta activist Tommy Sotomayor.

“As you can see I am a Dallas Police officer I am at work as we speak… it’s complete chaos,” Watkins said on the video, referring to the aftermath of fellow police officers being shot in Downtown Dallas.

“Quit hiring cowards, they are hiring cowards… my partner says they are hiring cowards,” said Watkins, talking about rookie officers coming out of the academy. “They are hiring ex-military and they don’t see people as human.”

According to CBSDFW , the officers also criticized recent police shootings around the country.

The Dallas Police Association said the two officers are not a reflection of how other cops feel.

The officers are being investigated by internal affairs and remain on active duty.
