Georgia Cops Caught On Bodycam Video Making Racist Comments About Stacey Abrams, Rayshard Brooks And Keisha Lance Bottoms

The police chief and patrolman have been ousted for the disparaging remarks.

Hamilton, Georgia chief of police Gene Allmond has resigned, and patrolman John Brooks was fired after bodycam footage surfaced of them using racial slurs, WTVM reported on Friday (Jan. 29).

In the video, the two men are talking about the killing of 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks by Atlanta police on June 12 in a Wendy’s parking lot after Brooks allegedly grabbed a police officer’s Taser.

“How come when you tase a [expletive] [N-word] it’s like you done killed him 27 time,” one of the officers, speaking off-camera, says.

The comments were made during a Black Lives Matter protest in Hamilton, Georgia in June 2020.

“It was disgusting. The fact they were on duty … when we found out they were terminated in an hour-and-a-half time,” Hamilton’s mayor pro-tem Ransom Farley told ABC News.

Farley continued, “I thank God, we caught it. When you're a police officer and you have that type of frame of mind …. how can you protect and serve?
