People call minorities whiners about the cops, but the threats are real in this country, and racism is rampant, as evidenced by the amount of racists who voted for Trump. A veteran police lieutenant in Georgia who was caught on camera during a traffic stop last year saying officers “only kill black people” will be fired, authorities announced Thursday.

In dashcam footage from July 2016, first obtained by WSB-TV Channel 2 in Atlanta, a white woman can be heard telling Cobb County police Lt. Greg Abbott that she was scared to put her hands down because she had “seen way too many videos of cops.” Abbott, who is also white, then says, “But you’re not black. Remember, we only kill black people. Yeah, we only kill black people, right?”

 

Abbott, a 27-year veteran of the police department, will be removed from the force, Cobb County Police Chief Mike Register said at a news conference Thursday afternoon.

 

“The statements were inexcusable and inappropriate,” Register told reporters. “I don’t know what’s in [Abbott’s] heart, but I certainly know what came out of his mouth.”

Abbott’s lawyer, Lance LoRusso, said his client had been cooperating with the internal investigation.

 

“His comments must be observed in their totality to understand their context,” LoRusso said in a statement. “He was attempting to de-escalate a situation involving an uncooperative passenger. In context, his comments were clearly aimed at attempting to gain compliance by using the passenger’s own statements and reasoning to avoid making an arrest.”
