Well looks like an officer slipped up; he accidentally said how he really felt a little too bluntly, so now he has to get in trouble, because we all know if he was a little more slick with it, the police would find a way to get him off clean. Atlanta police say an officer shown on video telling a black motorist he doesn’t care about “your people” has been disciplined and reassigned.

When is enough honestly enough? Some police officers, as of late, have been just abusing their power to the fullest and makes you sometimes if everyone really should have freedom of speech. The only benefit of this open racism is literally that: it’s “open”, so we can see up front and center who and where not to be around. In a letter dated Nov. 24, Cobb County police Capt. J.D. Adcock apologizes to the driver, who is also a well educated teacher, Brian Baker. Adcock says an investigation found that the officer violated the department’s code of conduct. The officer is referred to only by last name.

Dashcam video shows the incident took place at a traffic stop northwest of Atlanta, in suburban Cobb County. The officer is heard telling the motorist “I don’t care about your people” after issuing traffic citations. The officer also says, “Leave. Go away. Go to Fulton County.” Atlanta is in Fulton County. A lawyer for Baker, a 33-year-old teacher, says the comments were racial references because her client is black. His lawyer continued, “If I, as a lawyer, would say, ‘I don’t like your people,’ I would be terminated,” Bandoh said. “My client is a school teacher, and if he told a student that, he would immediately be terminated.”

Sgt. Dana Pierce says he can’t comment because of the investigation.

The officer is Maurice Lawson. After Baker drove off, Lawson remarked to other officers at the scene: “I lose my cool, man, every time. Why do I got to deal with (stuff) like that? This is the (expletive) America we live in, ain’t it?”

Adcock wrote to Baker that Cobb County police have taken several steps including “formal discipline,” but the letter does not specify what type nor does it say where the officer has been reassigned. See more of the story below:
