Chicago’s Fox 32 reported that the city’s Civilian Office of Police Accountability opened an investigation into the officer after a social media user filmed the officer in full uniform making violent comments to the person recording.
“I kill motherf*ckers,” the officer, who was in an unmarked car, is heard saying in the beginning of the video before telling the person recording to not film him and suggesting he may arrest him for “walking illegally” in the street.
The officer then denied that he made the comment about killing people before telling the man recording that he doesn’t “give a f*ck.”
After driving down the block slowly in pursuit of the man recording, the officer then got out and began following him and his friends on foot, telling them that “Illinois is a two-party consent state and I don’t consent to you recording me.”
As he got closer to the group of young black men, the officer accused the person recording of hitting his shoe and appeared to goad them, suggesting the group call his sergeant. He then told the young man to get out of his way and tried to grab his phone.

GOP looks like it’s in a ‘state of panic’ after labeling combat veteran a ‘socialist loser’ for running as a Democrat: columnist
Republicans in Cincinnati, Ohio, may have overstepped the boundaries of poor taste, calling a former Air Force pilot a "socialist loser."
As columnist Jason Williams writes in the Cincinnati Enquirer, the GOP majorly flubbed their campaign against the Democrat.
"Yeesh, not a good look for the Trump Party," Williams writes. "Democrat Nikki Foster is neither a socialist nor a loser, from what little we know about the Mason moderate after she launched her campaign in Ohio's 1st Congressional District on Monday."
Pelosi slaps Trump with a backhanded compliment: ‘He’s a great distractor — that’s what this is about’
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday accused President Donald Trump of making a racist attack on four U.S. congresswomen to distract from failures in his administration.
At a press conference, Pelosi told the reporters that lawmakers were "gentle" in condemning only Trump's tweets as "racist" in a recent vote.
"We weren't saying he is racist," she explained. "We were saying that the words that he used were racist."
"We all know the argument that could be made against us in terms of our philosophy, in terms of our priorities and the rest," Pelosi said. "And the president knows there are arguments that could be made against him and, therefore, he wants to distract from them."
