The Snapchat video posted by Officer Gary Steele included a sticker that read, “Celebrating Black History Month.”
I wonder if this cop was marching with the racist neo-nazis in Charlottesville. It's a tough pill to swallow that this sort of thing happens in 2019 and as of lately is becoming more mainstream.A Detroit police officer is under fire for a racially charged Snapchat video of a black woman he pulled over for a traffic stop.
Officer Gary Steele has been reassigned while the Detroit Police Department investigates the video, which department officials confirmed he posted on Tuesday.
The incident began after he pulled over 23-year-old Ariel Moore for having an expired registration and seized the vehicle.
Steele then told her to exit the vehicle so the vehicle could be towed. She declined a ride home from the officers and had to walk a block home in below-freezing weather, according to Detroit station WXYZ.
The video shows her walking away, one of the officers says she is doing the “walk of shame,” and stickers are added that read, “What black girl magic looks like” and “celebrating Black History Month.”
It ended with an officer saying, “Bye, Felicia,” according to the Detroit Metro Times.
