A Maryland police department has released hours of body camera footage showing an arrest involving a White officer who used a racial slur while talking to a group of Black men.
The incident outside a Silver Spring McDonald’s in May sparked controversy when the officer’s use of the word was livestreamed on Instagram. Local leaders sought the release of unedited body camera video.
WRC-TV reports at least one of the men can be heard using the word in the video released July 12, and the officer says she was echoing him.
Acting Police Chief Marcus Jones criticized the language and said officers are getting retrained on professional conduct. But he says the incident wasn’t racial profiling.
Four men were cited for trespassing, and two were cited for marijuana possession.
