VIDEO: Officer Repeats Back Racial Slur While Talking To Black Suspects

A Montgomery County officer is under investigation after videos showed her calling a group of black men "n-----s."

Silver Spring, MD – The Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD) has released bodycam and cell phone footage that captured the moment one of its officers used a racial slur while speaking with a group of black men.

The incident occurred at approximately 10:36 a.m. on Thursday, outside a McDonald’s restaurant on New Hampshire Avenue, WTTG reported.

The group of four men said they were waiting outside the restaurant to be picked up for work by a coworker, when a McDonald’s employee called police to report that they were loitering on business property.

Montgomery County police responded to the scene, told the men that they would be cited for trespassing, and began patting them down, WRC reported.

Two citations for marijuana possession were also issued at the scene.

Bodycam footage and a cell phone video recorded by one of the suspects showed the men complaining about being stopped by the officers.

“The f--k y’all n-----s do this every day with me!” one of the me railed as a female officer began searching a backpack at the scene. “If I was doin’ some s--t, I woulda ran from y’all n-----s.”

The officer noted that the man seemed to be angry, and said perhaps he won’t be as angry in the future when he grows up.

“Y’all are d--k-eaters, that’s what you all is,” he retorted.

“It’s good to be something!” the officer quipped. “Doing better than you, it looks like. I’ll get paid eating d--ks.”

At one point during the encounter, she asked another suspect at the scene why he had straps in his backpack.

“I think she likes straps,” one of the suspects said.

“Yeah, I’m big into straps,” she confirmed. “Strap on, strap off…that’s why I’m very well-versed in what straps do.”

“You n-----s came to write a whole bunch of paperwork,” the suspect recording the scene said a moment later.

“Hey, you wanna get out of here fast, right? the officer responded. “So, if we have more people…y’all n-----s been tryin’ to somethin.”

One of the suspects immediately called the officer a “racist -ss b---h.”

“Nope, that’s a quote,” she replied cheerily. “Those were your words.”

The suspect then noted that the officer probably wouldn’t have called them “n-----s” if she “didn’t have that badge on,” at which point she began laughing.

“I would still say it because what I’m doing is repeating your words,” she responded.

The suspect who recorded the video later identified himself as Barry Tucker, WRC reported.

"I couldn't believe it. I could not believe it and I couldn't believe her face that she made,” he said of the racial slur the officer used. “She thought it was actually a cool thing to say and it's not. She even said it was appropriate.”

The MCPD released a statement along with the videos on Thursday night, but did not address the officer’s status with the agency.

The department noted that it “takes all allegations of racial discrimination seriously,” and that they expect officers to serve “all members of the community in a fair, impartial, and non-discriminatory manner.”

“All allegations of misconduct surrounding inappropriate actions or language by our employees are investigated by our Internal Affairs Division, at times in concert with other governmental agencies within Montgomery County,” the MCPD confirmed.

The agency called the officer’s behavior “disturbing,” and said it was “contrary to our department’s values.”

“We sincerely regret the disturbing nature of this video,” the MCPD’s statement read. “We understand the pain such language causes the entire community.”

“Our commitment to having open and honest communication with the community and providing transparent police service persists,” the agency explained. “As part of our commitment to accountability and transparency, we are releasing both the social media video and the body worn camera footage of the involved officer for all to view.”

Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich denounced the officer’s behavior, and declared that there “are no circumstances that justify” what she said, WTTG reported.

“The officer’s comments recorded on the video violate the standards which we expect our officers to uphold,” Elrich railed. “Every time something like this happens it hurts the reputation of all officers, and it works against efforts to build trust in the community.”

Montgomery County Council President Nancy Navarro said that the racist language heard on the video is disturbing and “not representative of the high expectations” the county has for its police force.

“It is my expectation that the individuals involved will be held accountable for these offensive actions,” Navarro added. “We are and will continue to be an inclusive County and it is imperative that we continue our work to engage in education and outreach to sensitize our residents on the harmful effects of racism on the residents of our communities."

I may would have agreed with the guys but for the fact of their disrespectful attitude and the "Nigga this, Nigga that" shit and telling the female officer she's a "dick eater"! You get what you give. Give no respect and you'll get no respect! Officers 1. Ni**as 0!

Bullshit! This is not just how criminals push their bullshit narrative for trying to get out of their crimes, but how leftists start their racist bullshit stupidity. Good for the officer for not putting up with their bullshit...screw the department for succumbing to liberal stupidity and appeasement and not backing up their officer.

I see nothing wrong with this. it's simply using words that they understand. there will be a day when they all understand that they are the problem.

So if someone refers to me as a "Nigga" and I respond to the nigga as a "Nigga" then I'm a racist for referring to the nigga as a "Nigga?" What about the nigga calling her a "Dick Eater?"

if you don't like that word, why do blacks use it so often? If you can use it, everyone can use it.

WTF is wrong with them? They can freely use that term when addressing other blacks but also people of every other race but if someone not black uses the term, it's racist? That is racist in and of itself. GROW UP!

Good grief, if one human can say it, so can’t another. The word is not off limits if they use the word, then expect to hear it back. If it’s that offensive, then don’t utter it at all. Ever!

This makes news?!

Blacks call themselves "nigga's" all the time, well, give me a break that they find it offensive!

Offensive so long as they can use it as a lame excuse to make something out of nothing!

She quoted the idiots end of story! Stop with enabling their victim mentality!!

I very rarely chime in on these. Bottom line, just from this video, she seems like the type of LEO that escalates things! She was way out of line for demeanor. Just because you use it as a "Quote" doesn't make it right. Put it in your report. I read a few of these comments and it seems to me that a lot of you have no clue what kind of power the N-Bomb has coming from a white person... so it seems like there is a lot of learning to do for more than just her. I don't use it and have been called everything under the sun... I just don't care. For the folks who think, "If they say it then anybody can say it", best of luck when you use it because you heard it. All I have to say is don't be mad when Fist to Cuffs come in first class mail!

She will be looking for a new job. Good luck finding one, she brought this on herself.

I blame her parents. She probably doesn’t even know who her father is. No respect for other propels.

When blacks stop using that word, when they stop referring to each other and everyone else by that word, then and only then can they claim offence, only then should people be punished for it. Until that happens, until blacks condemn each other for the use of that word, it is fair game.

Ok for blacks to refer to others with racial slurs. She just repeated what he had said. Where's the harm in that. Seems to me she was being quite respectful to these guys.

It's a word and it has only as much power as we, as a society or individuals, give it. Black men referring to each other as N* seems to be fine, but let one white person make the same statement and it's immediately decried. So which is it? Is it racial or not? If it's racial then no one should use it. If not, then what is the problem?

Her language is INEXCUSABLE for any human, let alone an officer of the law. Really necessary to quote the "scum" of the earth? I think not.

There ain’t a thing wrong in what she did. They were saying it in multiple occasions within that one encounter. She was just repeating what they were saying. They were calling her dick eater, telling her she was familiar with strap one, racist, and all she did in all was repeat what they said. If they don’t like hearing it from anyone else who’s not black, then they shouldn’t be saying it also. They’re blabbing their mouths calling them whatever they can think of, but it wasn’t working. Then their last resort as always is to play the race card. That doesn’t work anymore in the 21st century. Man the fuck up. Just because YOU as an individual “don’t got shit on me”, it doesn’t mean your friends are clean also. As the video showed, they found shit on them. I don’t ever hear any other race going around calling each other by any derogatory names, and I’m guessing it’s probably because they don’t like to be called it themselves. But as far as black people calling each other the “N” word which I won’t say on here because of all the sensitive crybaby whiners who’ll zero in on that one word, if they don’t want to be called that, then they should stop also. Don’t get all butt hurt when you get called that if you’re going to call other people that.

Yep, blacks... mostly the victim-minded ones... believe they own the word. The word, to intelligent people, is not racist. Before the Left changed the definition within the past decade, or so, it never included the color of skin or an ethnic group. The definition only described the character of a person. The ones who make it racist are the sh!t stirrers, Leftists, the "victims" and the ignorant.

The law enforcement agency this officer serves under is apparently ignorant. Therefore, they have no business enforcing anything and should stay out of the public spectrum.

A few thing I have yet to hear from you trolls:

  1. If Montgomery Co. fires her, I will hire for our dept
  2. I would love to work in a car with her!
  3. She displayed exceptional professionalism! I mean, so what if she turned a simple stop into IAD complaints and a civil rights lawsuit for EVERYONE there.
  4. Great tactics!
  5. Id be psyched to finally be featured on YouTube!

I truly dont give a fuck what this child says, but she wont be doing it around me.

I don't condone her attitude or actions but get off the nigga bandwagon. These people use the word nigga in their everyday vocabulary and shouldn't be surprised when someone slams it back at them. To say this is a OMG moment in history is bullshit and that life at MCPD will never be the same is more bullshit. It was wrong, send her to remedial training and tell her not to do it again. 10-8.

Sooo only blacks can use the the word “nigger”? That’s racist right there. They commit crimes, resist police, breed indiscriminately and we have to worry about using a “racial slur” they use on themselves???
