3 North Carolina police officers have been fired after one officer was caught saying discriminatory remarks towards African Americans.
The officer who made the remarks, Kevin Piner, was caught saying a civil war was needed to wipe black people off the map and that “he was ready”. The other 2 officers, Jessie Moore and Brian Gilmore, along with Moore, were fired due to violating codes of conduct, and using inappropriate jokes and slurs.
It’s probably safe to say, that these 3 officers won’t easily find new jobs in the future, nor should they.
When you hear others say that racism in rampant throughout our police departments and the justice system, this is what we mean.
