Detroit police, Ariel Moore, Gary Steele, racist, walk home, cold
Leave a comment

A white Detroit police officer is under internal investigation after a Snapchat video got leaked of him forcing a young Black woman to walk in the freezing cold with the captions, “what Black Girl Magic Looks like” and “celebrating Black History Month.”

According to WXYZ Detroit News, on Tuesday night Corporal Gary Steele pulled over Ariel Moore, 24, for having expired plates. He then instructed her to get out of her car and walk in the subzero temps. As she walked the one block to her home, he recorded it and in the video, you can hear him telling Moore, “Bye Felicia.”

“What they put on there, that’s racist,” Monique Mobley, Moore’s mother, told the news station. “They demeaned my child for no reason.”

Ariel added, “I’ve never had this happen to me in my life. I’m kind of shocked—I don’t really know how to feel right now. I’m still trying to take it in.”

The Daily Beast reported that Steele, an 18-year veteran of the force, has been “placed on administrative leave and demoted from his rank.”

In a press conference on Thursday, Detroit Police Chief James Craig stressed that he is incredibly angry about Steele’s actions.

“I am angry,” he said, adding,”I’m angry because this was a racially insensitive post.”

What makes this matter even worse is that Steele has a history of domestic violence, firing his gun at an ex-girlfriend and was even arrested back in 2008. Yet, he still held on to his shield.

“He has a troubling history,” Craig added. “His departmental history predates my appointment. It would have been a different outcome if I had been chief.”

Craig also apologized to Ariel’s mother and waived all the fees for towing her car and returned her vehicle.

As the Detroit Metro Times pointed out, this isn’t the first time a Detroit police officer has come under fire for a racist social media post.

Last September, a white rookie officer was fired after posting a selfie in his uniform with the caption: “Another night to Rangel (sic) up these zoo animals.”

  1. Black people are and have created a situation where a lot of people cant no longer stand them. Everyone just wonders what antics they will pull next and who wants to get involved with them in any way? They just simply like to be in the middle of contention and conflict all the time, always just so militant and miserable.

    What you won’t see, is organizers of the yearly womens march, support. They only march and care for non Black women.

  3. The chief said, “He has a troubling history,” Craig added. “His departmental history predates my appointment. It would have been a different outcome if I had been chief.” And it looks like it’s the same outcome, he’s not fired! Fired this clown! He has had enough time and fun harassing Black people!

  4. Ted, I agree and have been saying the same thing for so long……the best way to deal with the ignorance of these trolls is to ignore them. Squeeze them out of the conversation by not responding to them….they will eventually go away or continue rambling to themselves – which being the inbred imbeciles that they are, they may continue to do so.

      S.D. – I know people who won’t write or speak to family members for years, but an invisible nobody racist spewing troll can make them respond. SMH. Have a great weekend.

    Blue racist at it again – earning the hate. It wasn’t enough that he ticketed and towed her for expired tags. It happens. Then he records her unbeknownst to her and sarcastically refers to Black Girl Magic and used a worn out phrase, “Bye Felicia.” Now he might not be racist (he is), but he’s definitely unprofessional and shouldn’t be serving the community. If he can show one video of him mocking a white driver after a stop – I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt that he’s just an unprofessional idiot. I bet, just my hunch that he has never done this to a white driver. Now………folks leave the trolls alone. Let them spew their ridiculousness. They tag me and I rarely engage. I don’t know if they are bots, coons or racists. Just don’t engage. So what if their comments are ridiculous – ignore it. Don’t communicate with or engage someone that doesn’t have a soul. Remember, the white devil doesn’t care.

    • With an ugly ass history like yours why shouldn’t you walk on egg shells around us. Better yet, just shut the hell up and leave us alone! But, we all know that ain’t going to happen! How did WE become more racist than YOU? Because we TALK about your racism, but you MF post your evil on social media of making a young woman walk in the freezing cold, video her and mock her. But, we are the racist, get the fuk outta here!

    • Yep,that’s why they become cops just so they can wake up each day in Hope’s of killing a black person! Do you not realize how stupid you sound? The black race makes it impossible to like them.

      • Isn’t that what whites use to do? Wake up and kill Black people. That’s what kills me about you ignorant ass MF, you really act as if you have never done anything to Black people. If my history was as vile and ugly as yours is, I wouldn’t open my mouth against Black people or Native Americans! But, as usual, we see that ain’t going to happen. You are just mentally ill, you’re sick!

      • I think that Black people have about now, 5/6 CENTURIES of reasons why it’s impossible to like whites! But, you don’t like us, get the fuk outta here, clown! It’s easy to tell that you are sick in the head, because you are on a Black site just to harass. Do we go on your ignorant conservative site, no! Why should we? We know that is filled with ignorant people like you!
