A Colorado police officer who was fired after being caught on video using a racial slur last year will reportedly be rehired by the city commission.

In body camera footage obtained by local ABC affiliate Denver7 in June 2017, former Aurora Police Lt. Charles DeShazer can be heard saying, "We got the Alabama porch monkeys all contained.

DeShazer reportedly made the remark at the scene of an officer-involved shooting and was referring to a crowd of African Americans near the site of the shooting.

The slur was picked up by body cam and two other supervisors, according to a Facebook post shared by Chief Nick Metz on Tuesday.

Hope the asshole decides to grow the fuck up before he hurts anyone because of his personal problems.

2. I just don't

believe these people at all, anymore. And I damn sure don't trust them around us brown people, for any reason "Porch monkey"???!!!!!. Black people are no worse than white people in the crime department. And since a lot of AA are urban dwellers not spread out like the suburbanite are, it's easy to see the crime. If white people were forced to live a tight urban existence like amerikkkan apartheid has it set up for a majority of AA, we'd see their goddamn dirty laundry every day too.
I hate the term monkey as used against AA, it's been even applied to someone as accomplished as FLOTUS Michelle Obama. This is one sick ass goddamn country. SICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
