Chicago cop caught on video taunting black men — and bragging about killing people

Published

on

An unnamed Chicago police officer is under investigation after a social media video of him saying he likes to “kill motherf*ckers” went viral.

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.

So far, Republicans in Arizona, Kansas, Nevada, and South Carolina have all announced they will scrap the voting process for 2020.

Mike Pence should be investigated for his part in Ukraine negotiations and ‘we need some answers’: Ex-prosecutor

Published

on

On MSNBC's "AM Joy" Saturday, former federal prosecutor Joyce Vance agreed with host Joy Reid that Vice President Mike Pence could be involved in the Ukraine whistleblower cover-up — and that Congress needs to act to learn the truth for the American people.

"Let me go to you on this very quickly, Joyce, because here's the question for Mike Pence," said Reid. "Mike Pence has been sort of severed from all of the other questions that are relating to potential impeachment for Donald Trump, that the House is wrestling with right now, but if Pence ... went in knowing why the aid was being held up, went in and spoke to the leader of Ukraine knowing what stick the administration had over them, and in that way was drawn in to this idea of using that stick to try to get what they wanted from Ukraine, does he then face the jeopardy of perhaps also being drawn into the questions of impeachment?"
