Gary Steele, Ariel Moore

A Detroit police officer who forced a woman to walk home in the freezing cold has a history of violence against women. The cop, identified as Gary Steele, streamed Snapchat video of a Black woman walking home at night in near sub-zero temperatures after he pulled her car over for having an expired tag.

Steele and his partner made disparaging remarks about Ariel Moore as he recorded video of her walking alone in the snow late at night. The temperature that night in Detroit was a bone-chilling 2 degrees Fahrenheit.

"Priceless," said Steele. "Walk of shame," said his partner. Steele said, "In the cold. Bye, Felicia."

Steele also added captions that mocked Moore on Snapchat: "What black girl magic looks like" and "celebrating Black History Month."

The cops had Moore's vehicle towed to the City's impound lot.

Detective Police Chief James Craig told reporters during a press conference Thursday that there was an offer made by the cops to escort Moore home - but she refused.

"She gets to do that, but we get to make sure she gets safely home," Craig said, according to the Chicago Tribune. "But then to put up this insensitive post, makes me angry."

"I'm not troubled, not disappointed, I am angry," Craig said. "To make the reference to Black History Month is even more problematic."

Moore and her mom, Monique Mobley, spoke exclusively to WXYZ-TV. "What they put on there, that's racist. They demeaned my child for no reason, Mobley said.

Moore told the news station she was shocked.

Steele, who was demoted from corporal to officer, has had trouble with the law in the past.

"His history is troubling," Chief Craig told reporters. "There's a pattern, and I'm concerned about that pattern."

Steele plead guilty to domestic violence and discharging a weapon near his ex-girlfriend's head in 2008. The 18-year police veteran agreed to a misdemeanor plea deal that allowed him to remain on the police force.

    Them white boys are clearly in there own world and wrapped in a warm blanket of whiteness. Its to unravel though. It takes special privilege to think this was OK to post and that you would get away with it. A public servant under no circumstances should mock a civilian let alone post it. This idiot went as far as to racially mock this woman while exposing her to danger.

    But they will. They think they are above the law. He damn near blew his b!tches head off her shoulders, PLEAD GUILTY and STILL was able to carry a gun on the streets. So if he still has a job after that, why would they care that he made comments about a young black girl.

These crakkkas got off way too smug - and the whole “black magic” sh*t literally set my blood on fire!

  • Yoni7

    Just this past Saturday, the SAME EXACT THING happened to my brother. His license are "messed up". His car was towed. They wouldn't allow him to walk on the expressway in the snow, blizzard actually, so the instead handcuffed him, put him in the back of the car and dropped him off at the nearest gas station. So, it's not completely false. Some do, some don't.

  • iWasteTime

    So she refused a ride and they followed her home recording her and talking shit.
    Can you imagine what would've happened if she took the ride. Something in her spirit told her to walk , in the cold and might not make it than to get in the car with those cops and definitely not make it.

  • Yoni7

    Same article. Same police.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    So he only got demoted? Why does this guy still have a job?

  • nomika brown

    When you keep making excuses for racist white police officers to misuse and abuse their power towards black people this inappropriate behavior keeps happening tine and time again I don't find anything this police officer said that was funny he is racially profiling black people and this is a way of him trying to humiliate her he is a dirty cop and he will continue to act like this until he is held accountable he needs to be fired point blank period

  • Applebootay

    So he's wrong if he's covering up something about his sexual behavior...you need to know that to believe him? That SHAT sounds so crazy to me...I guess because I LIVE IN CHICAGO...I know what these racist ass whyt people of capable of and I have been the victim of racist behavior...I hope this never happens to you or anyone you love....your whole thought process will change...carryon

  • T Willis

    The only skepticism you should have - as a black American - is the history of yts as it relates to nooses, bleach, MAGA (attacks on minorities), and yt supremacy. How do you have a basic understanding of our history in this country and still fix your face to have skepticism? And it ain’t even a “quiet” skepticism lol - mfers are vocally calling Jussie a liar like Jim Crow and public lynchings weren’t a legal form of entertainment 50 years ago! We have become too complacent and ignorant of history in this country. You may have forgotten - or never been educated on the matter - but these racist cracks ain’t forgotten sh*t! Your ignorance empowers racism. Why don’t y’all grasp this?

    Not trying to guilt you but put the willie lynch blinders off your damn eyes....I'm agreeing that there may be more to the story but I'm believe the crime happened...regardless of why....it happened

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    i didn't watch the video either. based on what the chief is quoted as saying, i believe they're not allowed to just leave a person on the side of the road, hence the chief saying they offered to "escort" her home. so, because they're obligated to make sure she gets home, they thought they should at least be able to ridicule and mock her along the way. yt folks' logic.... i can't begin to understand it, smh

  • Yoni7

  • Applebootay

    Nope, they don't want the truth unless he exposes how his sexuality is tied to what happened...you know...victim blame...which is a MFR shame...but go head...

  • Applebootay

    I even said that there may be more to the story, but I do believe the crime happened...What TF would he have to gain by exposing this?

  • Applebootay

    I'm not mad at my roses...I'm just tired of this world we live in. I'm a complete EMPATH...its hard for me not to empathize with someone's pain....and we live in such a corrupt azz society..I stay on...I think I need to unplug from social media for a while...I feel myself getting emotional...

  • the guest

    Of course she could not ride in that car with them. Historically, black women are raped by racist white officers who abuse their power. So because she protected herself from vulnerability, they retaliated against her with humiliation.

  • the guest

    At first my theory was Jussie went out to meet someone and that someone set him up for an attempted robbery that was covered up as a fake hate crime.

    Now, my theory is Jussie is in an abusive situation, had a fight at the hotel, left his hotel in the freezing cold to get away, sought refuge at nearby Subway, called his manager, and walked to his manager’s house.

    He’s not cooperating because peope in abusive relationships don’t cooperate and make up outrageous stories to cover up for their abusers.

  • the guest

    Where did Jussie get bleach from? I’m mean like the lie is bad enough with the noose. But he had to add bleach?

  • the guest

    LOL

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Exactly. You know he probably wouldn't do this to a white girl.

  • Dowoop

    Their version of escorting her could mean following her in their car and taunting her like they did. They know how to play with words. Notice he didn't say they offered her a ride but that they offered to escort her home.

  • Ni Ni

    Smh, it's just a mess.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Wait a second. I have to chime in. Just because she has questions about the story as it came together does not mean she doesn't believe in lynchings or noose's etc...Relax. I haven't been following Jussie's story too closely but I am not 100% certain everything thing he is recanting is entirely truthful. Who knows?! Are you like a militant black person?! LOL! Which is okay in small doses.

  • Chocolate

    They both need to go.
    Cowards shouldn’t have badges.
    And they are nothing but, seeing as they took tax payer time and money to harass a female civilian such that she’d rather risk her life than get a ride from them. And since when is expired tags punished with a damn tow? You get a citation and drive it home, they are trash, blood suckers of resources.
    They make it hard for the good police officers- this chief needs to let both of those pieces of garbage go.

  • Marlika

    This won’t stop his cracka ass unruly behavior. He knows that he will continue to get another chance to screw up. They’ll suspend him for a few weeks and he’ll be back.

    My granny used to say” Every dog has their day” and oh Gary is gonna meet his match yet. He’s gonna pull some foolery on the wrong person yet. His girlfriend should’ve waited until he went to sleep and beat his arse!!

  • Fire & Ice

    She probably saved her own life, by not getting in that police car. Who knows wtf might have happened to her.

    It's not just domestic violence cases that disappear. I have a family member who has severe mental health issues. He is a danger to himself and others. He threatened two small children with a knife, because he thought they stole his money. The children were toddlers and had no access to his home! His daughter was a high ranking member of the CPD. When she got involved, the incident went undocumented and simply disappeared.

    There was a day that I trusted the police. But after I had a run-in with them several years ago and they threatened to arrest me...even though I was the victim in the situation...I pretty much hate them. I would have walked home before I got in the backseat of a police car or called Uber. Thank God, she was just a block away. Who tows a person's car for expired tags. When did this happen? In January? Don't you have until the end of the month. Why didn't they just write her a ticket? No excuses. Both of these mofos need to be fired and charged!!

  • wigmon68

    Its fair enough if she didn't want the cops to give her a ride home, but then don't report that the cops forced her to walk the block home. she chose that action.

  • Reenaface

    Steele, who was demoted from corporal to officer, has had trouble with the law in the past.

    "His history is troubling," Chief Craig told reporters. "There's a pattern, and I'm concerned about that pattern."

    * This is common place with white trash, they're sore losers in life, can't keep relationships and just suck at everything... What better way to take out all that angst then to become a cop so that they can bully black people. All of that posting to Snapchat and making references to black girl magic and black history month let's me know that subconsciously we stay on their mind more then they stay on ours it's like they're obsessed with us.

    I just wish that black folks, especially black wo
    men would use common sense. She didn't have anyone to come and pick her up or Uber herself a ride home from a safe location. She is lucky she made it home alive to report this story*

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Do you think they should have impounded her vehicle for an expired tag when the temperature was below zero?

  • Ebony Starr

    Well the haters in this post were in a car. I think most people were implying that they didn't believe someone would be on foot looking for someone to attack.

  • hottlanta

    So it is her fault. You can say what she woulda coulda done but you don't know the circumstances. Her not getting in the car with the police because she felt unsafe should be your main concern. She had COMMON SENSE not to do that.

    I read what was reported in the article, and if there are missing details I'm sure more will come out about this case .

    You missed the whole point of my post but it's okay. Let me reiterate that of course she made the right decision by not getting in the cop car. But common sense is making sure you're shit is updated with your car information so that you can avoid dumb shit like this in the future.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I get that but they could have allowed the woman to drive home and impound the vehicle another time.

  • hottlanta

    I understood what u said then u wanted 2 go into your especIally black women collective of not having common sense. Did l go into especIally white men way of not having common sense when we have seen in thé past 2 weeks of public officials in blackface n a klan outfit. Where was a family member 2 stop them. Why didnt they call someone 2 stop them from doing a stupid dumb shit. Since u wanted 2 know where her folks where. U may not like what l said but l stand by what i said.

    This is the "norm" from plenty of folks. Yes, he's a racist A-hole but he's not the first to record a woman walking in extreme heat/cold and making fun of her. He's just the first person to publicly be called out on it. Everyone else had the privilege of having their behavior covered up by other cowards.

    Those pieces of.. I'm pissed.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I feel but but please be careful.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I've seen blacks do this to other blacks and find it hilarious. Yes he's as racist as it gets but unfortunately we do this kind of dirty mess to each other too. Cold or heat doesn't matter.

  • Reenaface

    And I stand by what I said too. With all that is against black folks out here you would think some common sense would come into play here. So by your assertion it makes sense to brave bone cold chilling weather to walk home rather than to ride in a warm car that you should have the legal paperwork to prove that the registration is up to date.

    You lost me with the defending what white men do when I already stated in my original post that it was wrong for the cop to put her on blast via Snapchat like that. And it also seems to be that you can't mention responsibility and black folks in the same sentence without it being an issue or touching a nerve. I already stated that what the woman went through was messed up but I'm not also going to defend dumb behavior either.

    So you don't believe in any exceptions?

    Ok I hope your life is perfect.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You had to add that hypothetical because even you think that the law is extreme.

    Having an expired tag is a long way from driving recklessly and harming someone and that's the point.

    Cops make exceptions all of time---at least they do with white drivers.

  • hottlanta

    I didnt defend what white folks do l just stated what they do. There is a difference. There is no such thing as a warm car while u r being disrespected. They would have probably created some more trumped up charges took her 2 jail since their police records as cops are questionable.

  • Reenaface

    It seems like you were inferring that I was defending what white folks do when in my original post I called out the cop for being overzealous and over the top in his interactions.

    Um when it comes to avoiding cops and possibly going to jail over simple shit as expired car tags on a cold chilling, bone freezing night a warm car makes a whole lot of difference. To hell with disrespect, you can say what you want but her objective should have been to make it out of that situation alive and make it home safely which she did. But she still has to pay towing fees to get her car out of the impound lot and on top of that she has to renew her expired tags all of which could have been avoided including this ugly incident with the cop had she done so before. You see how that works?

  • lovelygamour

    In Detroit you cant get up to date tags if you don't have insurance. insurance in Detroit is the one of the highest in the nation. a 15 year old car can be $175 a month. so its not like she was just willfully arrogant. plus depending on her birthday its been too cold to do anything. some people have lost jobs because its too cold to go out.

    she sinced the danger with those cops and didn't want them to drive her home. so they got pissed and uploaded her on snapchat. if she was a man this wouldn't have happened. this guy is a predator. discharging the gun by his ex girlfriends head shows he is crazy living in a video game. guys like him becomes contract soldiers and dea agents he shouldn't be running around bothering regular people.

    I don't even know what to say.... That's messed up.

  • Braxton P. Hartnabrig

    Boy I tell you!!! Dr. Wesley Mohammad was right when he spoke about nigga behaviour and nigga action. Why can't black folks and niggas just obey all laws? Traffic court in Dekalb County , Fulton County and even Cobb County is just filled with blacks. I'm so glad my area of Cobb County is patrolled by Big Boss Man.

    Thx so much- I will

  • ?jessica?

    The sad part is I'm sure they have done this to way more people then her and probably won't lose their jobs.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    This is true.

    But if she doesn't have a vehicle she can go to work. If she can't go to work she doesn't have any money to get her car out of impound or pay for her registration.

    People forget or don't have the money to pay for their registration sometimes. It shouldn't be a capital crime.

  • hottlanta

    Exactly. It is just amazing how what she did is a major crime n dump hasnt done any major crimes at all.

  • wigmon68

    I made no statement about the woman driving recklessly. He pulls someone over and the vehicle they are driving isn't registered. He lets her go and she gets in an accident. What happens to the cop that didn't do his job?

    The people elect legislators, legislators enact law, the governor (elected by the people) adopts or vetoes the laws.. Police officer enforce the law. If the people don't like the laws, their regress is in petitioning their representative and with their vote. Thats the process and one that works.

  • wigmon68

    so in this post you ask if there should be exceptions, but int he post above you rant against exceptions because they aren't the ones you like. I believe police should only be charged with enforcing the laws, not deciding which ones an which situations they should be enforcing them.

    my life isn't close to perfect and if I roll through a red light or stop sign and a cop cites me, I don't go complaining about it because I am the one that broke the law.

  • wigmon68

    she didn't commit any crime. Thats why she didn't go to jail. according to state law, if you are caught driving an unregistered vehicle, the vehicle gets taken from you. If the people in the state of Michigan don't like the law, their is a process for changing it, but police should not be exercising discretion on which laws to enforce and which to not. The detroit CoP has said the officer responded correctly to the violation, but not in the aftermath.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    We didn't get the full story. Her insurance was also expired.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    And?
    It was below freezing. She had not committed a violent crime.

    They knew where she lived and they could picked up her car at a later date or issued her a ticket.

    It wasn't a life or death issue.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    That was a moving violation that could have caused an accident which you admit would have only gotten a ticket while having an expired registration isn't moving violation and would not have potentially caused an accident.

    But you're ok with the traffic violation that could have caused physical harm receiving far less punishment than a traffic violation that didn't?

    The law needs to changed because it basically penalizes people for forgetting or being too poor to afford to operate a vehicle.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Again with the hypothetical because you know that the punishment was over the top.

  • hottlanta

    Will u stop cutting n pasting off the state department website 2 try your best too 1 up someone 2 prove u r right. I will think about her car being impounded the next time l look at the ID channel about serial killers n when they r stopped by the cops for the same thing n the cops let them go with only a warning. Yep they just doing their jobs n the familles who the cops let thé serial killer go with a warning thank them for their service everyday.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    oh wow.. yep sounds about right..

  • Jayde da Blade

    Heartlessness should be outlawed as well...

  • Allihave2say

    I get the tracking of cars via registration help identify the owner in the event of an accident, theft or legal issues. However I think ruining people's lives and driver's records over an expired sticker is wrong. IJS. Not everyone can afford the $56 or whatever her state charge.
