Chicago Cop Caught Saying “Typical F**king Ni**ers” On Dispatch Radio

Racial tensions have been brewing in Chicago since the death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. But now things have gotten messier, with the release of an audio recording from The Chicago Police Department, in which a perceived white cop is referring to his perceived black colleagues as “typical fucking niggers.”

The clip was reportedly pulled from a police scanner by a local radio station, which was then first unearthed by The Daily Beast. At 30 seconds in, you hear an officer flirting with a female dispatcher, asking her: “How many boyfriends do you have?” She responding with saying, “Why you all in my Kool-Aid?”

Then in about 10 seconds later, another cop says, “typical fucking ni**ers.”

Later on, we hear another cop whose voice alludes to him being stressed tell the dispatcher, “Find out what radio that comment came from.” She then responds, “We don’t get radio numbers but I’m already hollering for my supervisor.” Lastly, a voice jumps in saying, “All black lives matter, man. Fucking ni**er.”

It’s still unclear in what context that was said, as The Daily Beast notes it could have been a black cop feeling sorry, or a racist one. Will Colloway, the activist responsible for releasing Laquan McDonald’s video, told the news outlet that he wants the cops responsible for these racist statements fired.

“We’re demanding the identities of the officers that made the comments… “We want to know their districts, and we are demanding that the mayor immediately fire the officers who made the comments, Colloway told The Beast. “Not launch an investigation, not put them on desk duty with pay… We want these officers off the streets immediately.”
