Four More Cops Fired Over Racist Texts and Video

Four More Cops Fired Over Racist Texts and Video March 24, 2015

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before (and if you’ve been paying attention, you certainly have). A group of police officers in Fort Lauderdale, Florida have been fired after an investigation found a record of sending incredibly racist texts and making videos fantasizing about killing minorities.

A five-month internal investigation led to three of them being fired, and one of them resigning, according to NBC Miami. The officers reportedly sent a trailer-style video amongst themselves containing a Ku Klux Klan hood, attacks against minorities, derogatory images of President Obama and racist comments about Hispanics and homosexuals.

“I had a wet dream that you two found those n—–s in the VW and gave them the death penalty right there on the spot,” one of the texts reads. Many of their extremely hostile and racially charged conversations can be read at the Sun Sentinel.

According to another text, one of the officers said, “We are coming and drinking all your beer and killing n—–s.”…

Jason Holding, James Wells and Christopher Sousa were terminated Friday. A fourth cop who created the video, Alex Alvarez, resigned.

Now the obvious question: How long before they have jobs with other law enforcement agencies?
