A Chicago police officer referred to a black officer and a black dispatcher as “Typical f—–‘ n—-s,” and another officer agreed, saying, “Typical f—- n—-,” and “Black Lives Matter, my a–,” over police radio this weekend, audio obtained by DNA Info Chicago reveals. You can listen to the full audio below.
As DNA Info Notes:
The comment appears to have been made at about 8:30 a.m. Saturday, when multiple officers and a 911 dispatcher had some form of miscommunication over the police department’s radio channel that covers Morgan Park and other Far South Side neighborhoods.
The comments come just days after Chicago Police appear to have violated the first amendment rights of Black Lives Matter protesters who shut down a Donald Trump rally, blooding one with a baton, injuring several, and arresting five.
The Chicago police are already being criticized, perhaps more than any other large police force in America, for racism and civil rights violations, both for the high profile police killing and cover-up of teenager Laquan McDonald and others, and their now notorious black site.
