According to NBC News, the Richmond Police Department launched an internal investigation after 13-year-old Cameron Hillard, a student at Albert Hill Middle School in Richmond, Va., shared a video of a police officer yelling out of the window of his police cruiser to a group of students.

In the video posted to Facebook, the students are walking to an afterschool activity when the officer, who is reportedly white, pulled up in front of the students.

“Someone said a curse word … like ‘F-the police.’” Hillard told the station. “It wasn’t me and my friends but he didn’t know who said it so he asked who said it.”

“Even if we did say that, that’s our choice of words,” someone can be heard saying in the video. Another person says “Yes sir,” which prompts the officer to make a shocking statement.

“Wait till your asses turn 18,” yells the officer. “Then you’re mine!” He then drove off.

In a statement, Richmond Police Interim Chief William C. Smith apologized to the students and said that the department launched an internal investigation into the incident after they were made aware of the video. When law enforcement officials concluded the investigation, they simply assigned him to another part of the city.

“His actions do not reflect the values, training, or policies of the department,” said Smith of the officer whose name was not released. “While these facts don’t minimize the incident, they do give you the totality of the person.”

  1. If it were a group of black kids then it probably was one of them that yelled it, just visit their household and you’ll see where it comes from, IF there is a daddy there, and considering 13% of the population commits 60% of the violent crime yes more than likely he will get to know some of them better. The true irony is this same cop will probably be the one who knocks on the mothers door some night to inform her how
    Another black kid shot her son in the face over a candy bar

  2. “He reacted like most grown men would getting totally disrespected by children,” Blgtye, and exactly what level of “grown man” are you referring to?!! First of all, police officer are held to a higher standard in the position they hold (and if he was so easily upset and put out by what they said, he has absolutely no business being a police officer), and second, no grown man that I know would respond to children in that manner. Possibly it’s you mindset that (apparently quite immature) that is the problem and not the children. You, grow up.

    Regardless whether those kids said anything or not, the Officer’s immature words were totally inappropriate and indefensible. His superiors should have at least reprimanded him with time-off without pay. This is a good example of why so many young (and older) people of color have very little respect for law enforcement.

    While his action may not have reflected the values, training or policies, your action says “we support this police officer, so we are going to assign him elsewhere” – – instead of making him go through some kind of sensitivity training or better yet firing his ass.

    Kids are totally disrespectful to authority cursing at the police, they are clearly acting out of line. When the cops react they want to play like victims. If I did something disrespect I was told your ass in mine when we get home. Black folks if you want your child to stay out of grave yards and penitentiaries make them respect authority. It doesn’t matter if that person is black are white. Everything is about black and white not right are wrong. I don’t believe the cop was racist, He reacted like most grown men would getting totally disrespected by children.

      REALLY??? SINCE WHEN DOES DISRESPECT EQUAL DEATH!!! AND SINCE YOU HAVE SO MUCH KNOWLEDGE ON HOW TO KEEP BLACK KIDS OUT OF JAIL OR GRAVEYARDS HOW DO WE KEEP RACIST WHITE PEOPLE OFF THE F*CKING POLICE FORCE IN THE FIRST PLACE… #UNDERCOVERKLANSMEN #NEONAZIDISGUISEDASPOLICE

  6. Another klansmen weeding a cops uniform. Coward is hiding behind that baste with his gun in his holster. You take the gun and badge away from his punk ass and he wouldn’t have said anything. Damn bytch!!

  7. The POS PIG should have been FIRED.
    Law Enforcement officers take AN OATH to PROTECT and SERVE.
    However, they DON’T do either of those when it comes to OUR community.

    If that PIG CAN”T treat people of color as fellow HUMAN beings–he needs to find another job.

    Re-assigning the turd to another city will only result in the same actions.

  8. “His actions do not reflect the values, training, or policies of the department,” then he should not still be on the force. It appears his actions do reflect the mindset of the department…..
