Sheriff’s Deputy Fired for Racist Threats on XBox

A deputy from the Jackson County, Mississippi Sheriff’s Department has been fired after going on a violent, racist, threatening rant on XBox, telling someone he was playing against that he “gets paid to beat up niggers like you” and that he was going to “fuck you up.”

A Mississippi sheriff’s deputy was fired after making racist threats against another gamer while playing Xbox Live.

The other gamer, identified only as “David,” posted a YouTube video of his exchange with former Jackson County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Slater…

He later found the other gamer had sent him a private message, and David and some friends jokingly invited him to a party before the racist gamer revealed he was a police officer.

“You’re about to come to a paid police officer’s house,” he said. “I get paid to beat up n**gers like you! I get paid to beat up f*ckin n***rs like you! I will f*ck you up!”

David asked him to prove he was a police officer, and Slater provided his badge number, name, and other identifying information – including the phone number for the Jackson County sheriff’s department.

Bad career move, dumbass.

    I know it shouldn’t , but the sheer stupidity of these thugs never ceases to amaze me. Then again, they usually don’t have to worry about it because the city/state has got their back no matter how stupid they are.

    Nice way to prove you’re not smart enough to be a cop … even if the bar is kinda low.

    I’m surprised he was fired. Hell, I’d be surprised if had gotten a written reprimand.

    Talk about screwing up a sweet deal for everyone by telling the truth.

    I hear they’re looking to fill some law enforcement vacancies in a certain sort-of suburb of St. Louis…

    Well, you see, his boss wants to do his job. Some people do.

    And he has just made sure that his other cops keep their racist crap to themselves when they are representing their department (which he was doing by telling everyone he is a cop and going to that ridiculous extreme of identifying himself). He’s also made it seem possible that blatant racism on the job might well end in someone getting fired.

    The current cop problem in this country is the failure, on a massive scale, of leadership. The solution to the problem is definitely top-down. Get better police chiefs and you will have better police.

    In a way, this isn’t even about the racism. It’s about the anger control issues and the sheer stupidity. People who get that angry over a game have no business being cops. People with no better sense than that guy have no business being cops. The racism is just the cherry on the top.

    I can’t see this as good news. Threatening to kill people without provocation got that cop fired, but actually killing people without provocation rarely does.

    I can’t even watch the TV show “Cops” now without thinking “what if those cameras weren’t there?”.

    What amazes me about “Cops” is what they are willing to do while the cameras ARE there.

    “Mississippi sheriff’s deputy ”

    Poorer southern states, usually with very limited local budgets, typically have a hard time getting highly qualified candidates to apply. Anyone with skills and talent tends to move to better compensated positions with larger departments.

    You are left with people who, for a variety of reasons, barely make it in, and once in, can’t move up or transfer to another department. Sheriff’s deputy attracts a lot of troubled and down on their luck ex-military, cop wanna-be types, bullies, people with problems with authority (too little or too much) seeking to compensate, and stunted relations of existing LEOs who could be tuned up just long enough to pass the minimum standards to get their foot in the door.

    While there are exceptions it isn’t any great trick to find a considerable number of marginal examples.

    The guy gets fired, but, odds are, he will get picked up by a slightly poorer and more desperate department in Mississippi or Louisianan. In either state, as long as you steer clear of the larger municipalities, having a tendency to call people nigger and threatening to fuck them up isn’t considered a problem.

    What the smart cops do is compile a shit file on their boss. If things go bad you threaten to release the shit file unless the boss moves in to protect you.

    Michael Slater obviously didn’t have a shit file on his boss so he went down with no protection at all.
