Injustice in Georgia

This seems totally unfair:

A Cobb County, Georgia police officer is being investigated after dash cam footage showing him making questionable statements during a suspected DUI traffic stop was released. During the stop the officer, dealing with a nervous but not uncooperative passenger, had this interaction:

Officer: Use your phone. It’s in your lap right there.

Woman: OK. I just don’t want to put my hands down. I’m really sorry, I’m just—

Officer: –You’re just really [unintelligible]

Woman: –no, no, no I’ve just seen way too many videos of cops—

Officer: –But you’re not black. Remember, we only shoot black people. Yeah. We only shoot black people, right? In all the videos you’ve seen, have you seen the black people get killed?

Woman: Yeah. 

Officer: You have.

I understand the poor guy has retired rather than go through the investigation. So unfair. Why should he be punished for telling the truth?

DISCLAIMER: Should anyone stumble onto this blog who might take the above seriously, please look up the word “sarcasm”.

Addendum to disclaimer: Yes, believe it or not, some people are incapable of recognizing sarcasm.
