Folks are up in arms this morning after a disturbing dash cam video hit the web of a white officer telling a white woman that police “only kill Black people.”

In the now viral visual, a 27 year veteran, identified as Cobb County officer Lt. Greg Abbott, makes the upsetting remark during a DUI traffic stop.

In the clip, you see the Georgia officer standing outside the woman’s vehicle after pulling her over. When asked for the woman to put her hands down to reach for her cell phone, the woman can be heard saying, “I’ve just seen way too many videos of cops–.”

That’s when the officer interrupted and said, “But you’re not black. Remember, we only kill black people. Yeah, we only kill black people, right? All the videos you’ve seen, have you seen black people get killed? You have.”

According to the department, Abbott was placed on administrative duties during the investigation. Meanwhile, the officer’s attorney is speaking out, saying in a statement: “His comments must be observed in their totality to understand their context.”

“He was attempting to de-escalate a situation involving an uncooperative passenger,” the statement continued, “In context, his comments were clearly aimed at attempting to gain compliance by using the passenger’s own statements and reasoning to avoid making an arrest.”

Folks on Twitter went off after the video went viral. In response to the case, which was closed last month, many suggested that this is standard for Cobb County Police.
