Seattle cop kindly quits in viral video of BLM insults
A Seattle cop’s swan song as a police officer is going viral after telling a protester that he’s leaving the police force in two months because he’s tired of Antifa protesters and Black Lives Matter (BLM), says the New York Post.
According to the New York Post, a protester told the cop he was not having a good day because police are still there.
“I’m sorry for that, but don’t worry, man, because guess what? I’m leaving. You guys won! Two months, baby. I’m out!” the officer says in the video taken by protesters.
“Hey, you triggered, boy? You triggered? Oink, oink, oink, oink. F— you and your blue life, boy,” the protester fires back at the officer who maintains his calm demeanor throughout.
“The insulting activist then repeats the inflammatory comments a second time when the officer appears to say something about being friends. The angered protester responds, ‘Nah, we ain’t never gonna be friends. We’ll never see eye to eye. I don’t give a f*** if you take that badge off, you’ll never be my people,’” reports LawOfficer.com.
Clearly the protester was trying to ratchet up a confrontation between the cop and himself. As the video goes on for about 1:30, the protester works hard to taunt the cop, who seems to be impervious to the harassment.
A week ago, Seattle’s Chief Carmen Best announced that she was resigning after months of clashes with city politicos who she felt didn’t protect police officers.
“This was a difficult decision for me, but when it’s time, it’s time,” Best wrote in an email to her 1,400 officers.
Her decision came just hours after the city council voted to slash $3 million from the city’s budget.
The cuts eliminated some patrol officers, SWAT, and included a cut to Best’s salary which was seen as a punishment for Best speaking out against politicians during weeks of sometimes violent protests.
“It was both infuriating and deeply disappointing that the day after the chief stood in this room and criticized the council’s approach and offered her own vision, the very next day they voted to slash her salary and the salaries of her whole team,” said Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, who has an uneasy relationship with police.
