Police officer demoted for telling deputy to ’act like a white supremacist cop’

A high-ranking police office in a Florida sheriff’s office was demoted last week after she was caught on camera directing a deputy to act like a ’white supremacist cop’ and a ’neo-Nazi cop’ when pulling over a black man suspected in a 2017 murder. Phelps was removed from head of major crimes and narcotics Wednesday but she’s still heading up officer training.

The headlines are very misleading. I understand exactly what she ment. It was a play in the belief that white cops just fuck with black people just because, in an effort to try and get his finger prints. That's the more unethical part, not the words she used.

It is notable that this occurred in 2017 with many officers in the room and was apparently not reported, or at least not acted on, until recently.
