A Chicago Police officer was caught on video threatening to arrest a man for walking in the street. The officer then attempted to grab the man’s camera and called him a “retard”.
The man, Ken Marino, began filming the officer after he came close to hitting him with an unmarked SUV. Marino began the video asking the officer to repeat something that he had said before the camera was turned on.
The video was uploaded to Facebook by Marino and shows him questioning the officer, named Hunt, while he sat in his car.
“You said you trying to shoot mother f****rs?” Marino asks.
“No, I kill mother f****rs,” officer Hunt replies.
“And you just tried to hit me with the car?”
“Don’t try to film me, dude, alright? You want to try to do the bullshit, I’ll lock you up for walking in the street.”
The officer then proceeded to exit the vehicle and walk behind the man with the camera, eventually grabbing for it.
Michelle Tannehill of the CPD gave Chicago News a statement regarding the incident, “We received the clip a couple of days ago and an internal investigation was immediately opened. This kind of behavior is not what is expected of Department members and is in contrast to the hard work we have done and continue to do to rebuild trust with the communities we serve.”
