A Detroit blog has exposed police officers from the Grosse Pointe Park area after they filmed themselves harassing African-American males on camera.
According to The Huffington Post, a blog called Motor City Muckraker run by Steve Neavling, a former Detroit Free Press reporter posted two videos that show African-American men singing and making animal sounds, allegedly told to do so by police officers.
It doesn’t end there. The blog also published the above photo of a man riding in the back of a trailer an officer texted to others with the message, “Got to love the coloreds.”
Police Captain of Grosse Point Park said in a statement to the Huff Post:
On Thursday, November 14 2013, the Grosse Pointe Park Public Safety Department was contacted by an individual who said that he was in possession of video clips and a photo of African American males. The video clips and photo are allegedly made by an officer of this department. The department has begun an internal investigation of this matter. The Grosse Pointe Park Public Safety Department does not tolerate unprofessional conduct by its officers when interacting with any citizen they may come in contact with.
The only officer named from the video so far has been Mike Najm, but sources think there are multiple officers involved.
Grosse Pointe Park, which shares a border with Detroit, is wealthier and predominantly white.
We hope investigators are able to get to the bottom of this horrible behavior!
