Memo To The Chief Of Police In Dallas, Texas - Forget Your Apology, This Officer Should Be Fired Immediately!

This clown has no business being a police officer. His job is to protect and serve the public, not fuck them over at a traffic stop when their loved one is dying in a hospital. This absolutely, positively, outrageously racist behavior. I am also damn sick and tired of police officers pulling their guns as a first resort in nearly every situation. Was this dude really going to start shooting unarmed people over running a red light?

Being a police officer is a damn hard job and the public deserves the best people in the world serving as police officers. Not folks who think their badge gives them the right to lecture people and push folks around. I give credit to Chief of Police for apologizing, but this officer still didn't get what he did wrong even after viewing the videotape of his actions. This dude is not qualified to serve, he should be fired, period. I hope the family sues.

While I understand why the family was speeding and running red lights, it is still illegal. I understand an officer that does his best to follow the letter of the law.

HOWEVER... this officer behaved like a straight up jerk. The guy has to sign the DNR forms to save someone's life!!! "I can screw you over" he says. What the heck? Because the driver's "attitude sucks"? Because he's so intent on doing his job? Yeah, right!

Well from what I know of law enforcement, being a "good cop" is practically an oxymoron anyway and the entire system is corrupt. Cops act more like how the original characters in Law & Order were not the later years with Det. Green and how they always try to present them as being fair and concerned about following procedure. We'll see if anything actually happens.

@cijimmcbride -

The family was stopped for running a red light, not speeding or running multiple red lights. I have been stopped and cited for running a red light and I have NEVER been treated like this family was treated. Even this guy's superior officers knew he screwed up.

The cop was obviously on a power trip. He used the violation of a traffic regulation to attempt to humiliate and intimidate. His "lectures" and snide asides while a woman is dying is beyond pathetic. He was insistent on having the last word.

And people wonder why there's hardly any respect for police officers anymore... Whatever happened to "To Protect and Serve"?
This was all about ego. A hospital nurse came out to verify what was going on, as well as another officer, and this guy still refused to back down??? I think alot of these officers, particularly the younger ones, are on power trips because they know they can easily ruin someone's life. And just think about how many officers have lied on reports just to exert this "power".
This will call into question any cases that he may have going on.

one day he is going to pull over the wrong person and they will take care of his attitude problem!
people are crazy! and with all these teenagers toting guns and their own attitiudes--it's just a matter of time before this cop gets it back.

too bad no one is seeing this incident as a red flag to slow him down to save his life as worst is bound to happen.

no one listens to the warnings when they come--but after some great mess happens--they also say, 'i wish i woulda known!'

you reap what you sow!

Although I don't agree with his behavior, I understand why he stopped them initially. Once the nurse and another local cop verified their presence, it was very clear that this guy was an asshole. I'm not sure race, money, or being an athlete had anything to do with it. This guy deserves further discipline.

*sigh* This incident just illustrates the problem that is going on with the police force which is aloy of half-way educated white men who feel that a badge is ticket to power trip. Alot of these men don't have many prospects beyond their town/city and for many law enforcement is the way to go. Poor white trash with badges. While in college I worked as a dispatcher (part-time) and the attitudes that some of these yokels had toward people of color were disgusting.

What a despicable abuse of power. Obviously if Moats had been white he would have been escorted without incident.

What is worse is that Moats had his hazard lights on and turned directly into the hospital parking lot which should have clued the soulless officer in that the driver had an emergency. Moats handled it with restraint and never once identified himself as an NFL football player. His own father in law stayed behind, knowing that it could have progressed into something worse. And the fact that the cop pulled a gun out on his wife even when the hospital nurse and security guard politely told the cop that imminent death, he stilled felt justified in verbally abusing and delaying them.

Beyond disgusting. It was racially motivated and the incident merely highlighted the cop's lack of character, morality and compassion.
