Georgia Police Officer Tells White Woman ‘We Only Kill Black People’

I could not, if I tried my hardest and spent all day trying, find a better example of people who react to the Black Lives Matter movement by saying All Lives Matter (or especially Blue Lives Matter) are idiots than this story. No one doubts that people’s lives matter and we shouldn’t go around killing them, but police have shown a certain disregard for the lives of black people, at least in the United States.

You may remember the body cam footage that came late last month of officers scrambling to explain why they pulled over a black woman in a nice car when she turned out to be their boss. Well now, courtesy of WSB-TV Atlanta, we have dashcam footage of an officer telling a woman “we only kill black people, right?”

According to their report:

Cobb County police Chief Mike Register told Channel 2 Investigative Reporter Mark Winne that after Channel 2 Action News submitted an open-records request, he and his command staff looked at the video.

“Remember, we only kill black people. We only kill black people, right?” the Cobb County police officer can be heard saying on the video.

On Friday, they opened an internal investigation.

Register said the officer heard on video is Lt. Greg Abbott. Register said Abbott has been assigned to administrative duties pending the outcome of the investigation.

According to Register, the recording is part of a DUI stop. The woman said she was hesitant to put her hands down to pick up a cellphone because she didn’t want to get shot.

“No matter what context it was said, it shouldn’t have been said,” Register said.

I agree, this goes way beyond dumb things someone says and doesn’t really mean. Even though I can see a perfectly rational explanation for the officer’s statement, it doesn’t make it acceptable. The willingness of police to kill black people at the slightest provocation, or even entirely absent of provocation, should be treated as serious problem and something that highlights the very real institutional racism that’s still alive today, not an offhandedly comment to make white ladies feel safe.

Thankfully, as is not often the case in this situation, WSB-TV is reporting Police Chief Mike Register has told them “the recommendation is to fire” Lt Greg Abbott. Normally, I would say we’re too quick to call for people to be fired in situations like this. But as a police officer, Greg Abbott caries a gun and is supposed to represent the best of us. He’s supposed to be held to a higher standard, and too often we fail to hold police officers to those high standards. When we do, it tarnishes the perception of law enforcement as a whole, and no one is hurt more than by the officers who meet or exceed the standards they should set. You know, aside from unarmed black men minding their own business.

RHONJ’s Joe Giudice Dealing With The Law Again As Cops Are Called To His Beach House — What Is It This Time?!

Ruh-roh!

He's not in prison yet, but Joe Giudice might be in some hot water after cops were called to his beach house late Saturday night over what police are calling "loud arguing."

[ Related: Vicki Gunvalson Splits From The BF -- Again! ]

Apparently, a neighbor of the Real Housewives of New Jersey star called the cops after an argument at Giudice's Stafford Township, New Jersey beach house got out of control.

Christopher Fritz, a police officer for the city, confirmed the call and stated:

"It was a keep [and] restore the peace call made over loud arguing. Once everyone was calmed down, we cleared … There was no cause for arrest."

The argument was apparently between two men -- and even though some sources have insinuated that it was related to Giudice's oldest daughter, Gia, being locked out of the pad, that's apparently not the case.

A source said of the source of the dispute, that it was most certainly not about Giudice's 14-year-old-daughter:

"Joe is upset that someone said the cops were called because he was supposedly yelling at Gia – when she wasn't even there. She was never locked out of the house. The house was open."

But, apparently the dispute was still related to family problems, which, considering the Giudices' legal troubles, wouldn't be too hard to imagine.

Buffy Star Nicholas Brendon Checked Himself Into Rehab For The Second Time This Year After Smashing A Window With His Bare Hands!

We just hope he's getting the help he needs!

Lately, Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Nicholas Brendon has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons.

From getting arrested three times this year, to publicly asking Dr. Drew for help, it's safe to say the 44-year-old is not at a good place in his life.

[ Photos: Buffy The Vampire Slayer Stars -- Where Are They Now? ]

Well now, he's at least taking action.

Recently, the sci-fi actor has checked himself into rehab -- for the second time this year -- following a bizarre incident where he smashed a window with his bare hands.

According to police, on July 3, Brendon allegedly got into an argument with a woman which lead him to punch said window.

After the thespian fled the scene, firefighters arrived and then discovered him in an alleyway with bloody hands.

The troubled performer was then taken to a hospital and no arrests were made.

Three days after this incident, Brendon admitted himself into a treatment center.

As we reported, he sought professional help in June for problems relating to depression, alcoholism, and substance abuse.

We wish Nicholas the best with his recovery.
