DUI stop

The Cobb County, Georgia cop who told a white woman that police “only kill black people” will be let go after 28 years on the police force.

Cobb County Police Chief Mike Register said Lt. Gregg Abbott will be fired for making insensitive racial statements during a traffic stop last year.

“I have known Lt. Abbott for years and perceived him as honorable, but he’s made a mistake,” said Chief Register, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I don’t know what is in his heart, but I know what came out of his mouth. We recommend that he be terminated and we are moving forward on that.”

Abbott made the statement after he pulled over a sedan that was driving erratically. He told the female passenger she could use the cell phone in her lap to make a call.

But the nervous white woman told Abbott she was afraid to move her hands because she might get shot — an obvious reference to the large number of unprovoked police shootings of unarmed black people during traffic stops in recent years.

“I’ve just seen way too many videos of cops,” the woman said before Abbott cut her off.

“But you’re not black… Remember, we only kill black people. Yeah, we only kill black people. Right?”

Abbott continued: “All the videos you’ve seen, have you seen black people getting killed?”

Suri Chadha Jimenez, the woman’s lawyer in the DUI case, said Abbott was likely being sarcastic because her client “gave him some lip.”

But she said his statement was still unacceptable.

“It makes you cringe when you hear it,” Jimenez told WSB-TV. “It’s unacceptable.”

    Whitey is out of control!!

  • Shamari123

    They fired him only because he let out their secret…which is not a secret because we all know they always target blacks. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1f2593d0842df48a2613927a939e0c5f359dbf915e93c024a2dcd0f668f63419.gif

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Good

  • Dainese

    I’m not here to cape.
    But the way that he replies to her, sounds like she said something of the sort first & this was edited. “But we only kill black people, right?” However, probably not a remark I would’ve made.. even it was a retort to a statement. And I wouldn’t have kept talking. He put his whole ass in his mouth. Forget the foot.

  • Anunnaki

    Ok he really resign, he will get his pension, that tax payer will pay for him and a family if he have one…next

  • Dainese

    See – gofundme. They will probably set one up the way our society is.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Edited or not, don’t tell nobody that mess. We need more snow caps to get on our side with this nonsense. I’m referring to the ones who are typically quiet or looks the other way when they see something wrong.

  • interestingconcept1

    he resigned. BIG difference.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    He’ll be a millionaire by Monday.

  • Pnthr

    He tell all the “jokes” he wants in the unemployment line.

  • bella28498 .

    lmao white ppl out here getting white ppl in trouble. White woman scared of the cops and this white pos just let the cat out of the bag.

  • Olga Summer

    My thing is…why is this “just” being released if this happened a year or so ago…furthermore this is definitely edited. She had to have said something that made him respond that way….he knew he was on camera so I HIGHLY doubt he randomly said that. Oh yea…what was the point of this video release…? Seems like a hidden agenda “they” are tryna push!! ***race riots***~cough cough

  • EMILY POST

    Good best news ever!

  • Olga Summer

    Well…in the grand scheme of things that ain’t the worst that can happen to him! Smh!! 20k a yr for a small town….?? hell he rich then! Hehehe ???

  • Karla E

    Trump will hire him.

  • Soda

    It says in the write up that she “gave him some lip.”

  • Dowoop

    I think Olga is asking what was the lip?

  • Dowoop

    She ain’t scared. She just looking for a way out of a DUI.

  • isaiit

    I’m glad he got fired but we have police out here killing black people that get paid leave and acquitted of all charges. But this man who said something HIGHLY inappropriate gets fired in 2.5 seconds… I hope this signifies change and is not a solitaire act of justice

  • ShWa

    Thank you Karma :0)

  • ShWa

    People are saying he resigned, he will relocate and get another job, wow….

    Good. Maybe he can find something else out in the sticks that pays $25k a year, if that.

    That scumbag got what he deserved.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    LMAO! That works for me!

  • hottlanta

    Still got his pension for 28 years. He is getting the white version of being fired. This is just right on time for him to take a vacation in Helen, GA in the mountain cabins and enjoy the fall foliage before he starts his new job. If he was getting fired via the black version he would go home, go to sleep and be at the unemployment office tomorrow at 8am before the holiday weekend because they will be closed Monday for labor day. Then when they call to ask why you get fired the job will deny your claim and you get nothing.

  • mzbestseller

    Why did it take so long for this to surface though if it happened last year or did I miss that info? Either way he got what he deserved.

  • mzbestseller

    I just asked the same thing!

  • Allihave2say

    They probably entered his statement into evidence as the driver’s DUI case moved through the system.

  • pure_rachet

    LMAO it happened to me before just like this!!!!

  • BrittBrat2005

    Lol, I’m come from city pop 10,000ppl we have 20 cops, but other towns around us have pop of 500ppl and down they only 3 to 5 cops he must going push one them off the force.. and 20k is okay for them but our makes 38k-45k so yeah you right haha

  • Allihave2say

    He still gets to keep all his pension and benefits by resigning after 28 years. He may have accepted an early retirement.

  • Ryan

    At the very least, his name is mud because every time someone Google’s his name this ish will come up… cops feed off of ego and nothing hurts the ego more than people calling you out and dogging you all over the country (national news), maybe even world. More than likely will turn to drinking, drugs etc. to self medicate but I have no sympathy for him. Trash can do what trash does – rot. *shrug*

  • tintin

    If he really wants… the union can fight for him and he be assigned to deal with after taking a class. Right now I feel they just sugar coating everything. Were ‘ll applauding him getting fired but I don’t think it Will be for long

  • Ajavee

    If I could like your comment ten thousand times ????

  • Jussjess25

    So how long does it take to fire someone?? Oh lemme guess they want to get his pension in order first huh? Smh

  • You Could Never

    I know nothing about that. I do know he gave a white devil who is worth 70 million dollars some money today tho. All I know. When brown folks are in need

  • hottlanta

    Leave Tyler alone. Let those Republicans who love black folks soooo much take care of them and Texas is a red state. Since folks have been blasting since Dump has been President that the Republicans are the only one’s who took care of black folks because the Democratic Party played us for a fool. Black folks need to sound off on the
    Republicans to put their money where their mouth is and leave Tyler alone. Tyler can spend his money as he see’s fit. Imma be watching
    this to see how mad black folks gonna be at Tyler instead of the Republican party.

  • BeUtFullSoul

  • BeUtFullSoul

    This happened Last year, it took AWHILE for them to Fire him…”they”, were making sure to get his 28 year PENSION straight First.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    Just saw in the AJC from yesterday’s news, that he said he would RETIRE…conflicting INFORMation. ?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. He notified them he was retiring, before they could officially fire him. So he’ll probably get to keep his pension and benefits.

  • Breitbart_Savior

    Cringe? Who cringed? I for sure didn’t cring. This is par for the course.

    What I cringe at is when some black people say, “Not all white people are racist.” That’s what I cring at. And not because I believe every white person is, but the idea that any black person wouldn’t prepare themselves for the chance that one happens at to be.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    “Tyler can spend his money as he see’s fit.”
    —-
    I agree with that part. I cant get mad at him for who he chooses to donate to. I say let the man spread his money around any way he wants to.

    He didn’t get fired. He was allowed to retire meaning he’ll get his benefits.

  • We Can Do This

    Yes. Not fooling me.

  • Breitbart_Savior

    I hate watching press conferences because all those so-called journalist fail to ask real questions, for example:

    1. Chief, will you give him a good recommendation should he apply elsewhere?

    2. Will you review all of his arrest involving blacks from the time of this video to now?

    3. Will he keep his pension?

    4. What is the mood amongst the ranks? Are they upset with him?

    5. You mentioned he’s a “good man”, are you more upset at what he said, or the fact that what he said was discovered and released?

  • JV

    It was just flat out racist and wrong. It also undermines public trust in police, so the “we have the toughest job in the world” line doesn’t hold much water when the police officers themselves make the job tougher.

  • We Can Do This

    They never aim to destroy their own especially if their own is sworn to uphold white domination.

    He and his family will be just fine.

  • JV

    At first I was like “what a minute, those are good questions!” And then I realized they were YOUR questions!

  • You Could Never

    So after 28 years we dont think this fool was vested in his pension plan and would have kept it in tact anyway even if fired? Do most pension plans not work like that? Asking for a friend.

You want to help someone with their relief efforts, help the mattress store mayne who over there housing and feeding the tired ass National Guard out his pocket. Running his electric bill the hell up with his lights on 24/7 bc he opened not one, but two of his stores to help.

Atlanta Pride and Black Gay Pride are 2 seperate event and it is marketed as such. That is why I said it. I stand by what I said about Tyler and Joel Olsteen. Where are those white loving Republicans who love black people sooo much since they made a stink about what they do for us during the election. Did I lie about anything? Tyler can spend his money anyway he wants. Just because Tyler is a black man with green money doesn’t mean it is earmarked for black people only.
