Cop fired over COD threats

I don’t know why we ever believed that police officers would be pillars of the community. Perhaps because they pledge to defend and serve, or maybe because they’re meant to protect the innocent and enforce the law. We hope that they will be upstanding citizens, but they are also human and upstanding is not always the best word. One cop in Mississippi in the US of A has learned the hard way that even threats online can ruin your career.

A Mississippi sheriff’s deputy was fired after a video leaked online recorded him threatening another person while using racial slurs. The Clarion-Ledger (thanks arstechnica) reports that Jackson Country Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Slater was fired as soon as the sheriff became aware of the video which can be viewed here. Warning, contains graphic language.

Considering the rampant issues with policy brutality and racism in America lately, it’s particularly unfortunate the way Slater’s comments went. He didn’t just act like the usual trash-talking gamer – his threats truly were specific and racist:

You about to come to a fucking paid police officer’s house. I get paid to beat up niggers like you.

He even went on to give his badge number as proof he’s a cop, although that’s been removed from the version of the video posted on YouTube. As unfortunate as the whole situation is, it makes sense for the Sheriff’s office to terminate his employment. As a spokesperson said “We don’t condone that type of behavior or language” and with clamp downs across the board on police in America, no one can be seen to be supporting these actions. Proof yet again – in our current age of insane internet coverage and filming of everything, it’s best not to say or do anything that you wouldn’t feel comfortable getting leaked to the public. Also, really people, just be nice when you play online – is that so much to ask? And now to clear my browser history yet again…

    Good!

    Can we also just game without the “White Power” attitudes please…. I’m cringing a shitload listening to some of our online banter these days. Personally I don’t want to call them out (but I should) and ruin my gaming night with awkward silence.

            Sadly 99% of the time it’s those that prefer to make others life unbearable because they’re unhappy and most of the time it’s little kids

            I mean I played BLOPS 2 the other day and lo and behold I’m called a noob -_-

            But yeah I was thinking of mic for GTA Online PC but yeah that’s only in the back of my mind also I need a good headset with a good mic, was thinking about a Kraken 7.1 Chroma’s

          • Matthew Holliday

            March 11, 2015 at 12:49

            if being called a noob is the worst youve had, then you’re lucky.

            sofar as good mics and headsets, the krakens are decent, i hear that the plastic squeeks when you’re wearing it, but the sound quality is pretty much on par with the new siberia v3’s

            I had the razer orcas and have the razer elektra (at work), which if you mix the two, is exactly what you get when you buy the krakens.
            my orcas had an issue with bad wiring, i went through two pairs where the wires snapped and lost one of speakers.
            not sure if the krakens use the optical cable (mic and headphone in one jack) like the elektras do, but you may want to find out, because PCs dont have optical ports, so you’d need an adaptor, which cost me R100.

            I got the siberia RAW prism for home gaming, which are cheaper than the Krakens. mic and sound quality on them is excellent, but its a very light headset, so its real comfortable, but the sound isolation isnt the greatest, feels like you’re listening through speakers, rather than headphones, havent decided if thats a good thing or not yet.

            its a usb headset aswell and only available locally from takealot, so thats something to consider.

            personally, would wait for the siberia V3s to come out, they look solid.

            March 11, 2015 at 13:28

            I’ve seen the Siberia RAW prisms awhile back and thought about it awhile back, heck was madly in love with the idea of getting the Siberia Elite Prism but nearly got a heart attack at the price point.

            I know some even rave for the Kingston Hyper X Clouds, see takealot has the V3’s but yeah R1600 -_- http://www.takealot.com/steelseries-siberia-v3-prism-gaming-headset-grey-pc/PLID34187182 ,have quite a list of need to get hopefully end month I’ll be able to get my 970 and new PSU then hopefully finally adsl

            Thats the prism edition , see they have the other v3’s at R1300 http://www.takealot.com/steelseries-siberia-v3-gaming-headset-black-pc/PLID34187180 , but it seems to teksyndicate’s review that it’s not that great compared to the v2’s , might just get a v2 but see there’s a usb 7.1 and standard

            March 11, 2015 at 15:25

            yeah, but go prism or go home mang.
            the usb is usefull, sorta, but regular audio jacks are way too convenient to pass up.
            if you get a V2, you wont be disappointed, they are really solid pieces of tech.

          • Corrie

            March 11, 2015 at 16:13

            Was also watching a NCIX review of the v3, think I’ll bite on a V3, I’m not too picky with the Prism lights since I won’t really see em also I prefer the 3.5 since I love listening to music on the phone and sure OTG can work but can be a little annoying with where the USB port is on my Note 3.

            I haven’t purchase before from Takealot though, only ever Kalahari

    and you say the dota community is cancerous. (not saying its not, racism on our local servers and the attitude towards it is unacceptable)

    kids intentionally trolling to that scale to get a rise out of people for youtube views, cost someone their job, for the reward of getting an extra 500 subs and 30k extra views
    if someone trolled me that hard for that long, I’d lose my shit, although I probably wouldnt have taken such obvious troll bait…

    people need to learn to use the mute and report options.

    stupid kid & stupid cop for taking the bait.

        my personal experience is different, I play with friends more often than not, and rarely have a need to take actions against other players.

        i know that the cancerous element is pretty large, but have never seen something to THIS scale on our local servers.

        i get more annoyed by the casual attitude people have towards racism, people get racism shamed on the facebook group and people just shrug it off.

          Have you loaded up the RSA channel recently in DotA? It kinda makes me sick what gets said in there. But you’re 100% correct in that the game is a lot less acidic when you play with a friendly five stack. And even then, if the opposing team rages, you’re unified in your experience of that flame war.

          *Edit: The mods lead the charge in shrugging off the facebook shaming. It really needs to be a thing that is supported etc. At least the DGL ban players and teams for any horrible things that get said during lobbies and games now.

            the mods in the fb group used to be quite usefull, but with the cancerous element being so big there, the effort of maintaining it is too much, personally would have shut the group down if i was in charge.

    On one hand, you really shouldn’t rage the way that cop did. Ever. It’s not really humane. But I’ve been that angry before (thanks dota) and have said some pretty nasty things to someone on the other end of a PC screen. I understand the way you feel when someone just ups and trolls you like that on purpose. On the other hand, this youtube dude specifically trolls people to get a rise out of them in order to put videos on youtube as entertainment. That is his aim (as per his own words in the video). Now that I don’t understand. I get it’s a game, but the fun is to be had in playing the game. Not purposefully trolling people and ruining their fun.

    I guess both are to blame. But racism should never be tolerated. And a wizard (errr… cop..) should know better!

    Why is a cop being fired for talking shit on a video game during his off time.
    If cop was really getting paid to beat up niggers on duty, then yeah fire the bitch.
    If the cop was beating up niggers while off duty, then yeah fire the bitch.
    But if it’s just fucking words with no actual beating up of niggers, then don’t waste our time and don’t fire people over shit.

    Well, the real reason why I could see him getting fired is because he gave out his personal details online. When will people learn you don’t give out your personal details online.
    And if he used job resources for personal use like tracking down some random person.

    Anyway. Not enough reason for the cop to have been fired.

            The cop’s issue was that the person was playing call of duty shit.

            I’ve been called all sorts of things playing call of duty. It’s part of people getting upset and trying to reason losing at the game. That has no being on real life. If it does then there will be people to sort it out.

            I did, in fact, listen to the video. The cop’s actual issue was that he felt his penis was larger than the oppositions penis. To validate himself, he willfully attacked the opposition (and the oppositions larger cultural group/race) by using known trigger words which immediately imply hatred/racism/etc. You use the words, knowing what they mean and how the free world feels about them, you do the time. A wizard should know better.

            if you listened to the video then you would have heard that the cop was called nigger much more. More shit was talked to the cop than the other way around.

            Both sides need to be taking into account. The cop losing his job over shit is not cool.

            Just because someone calls you something doesn’t give you the right to use that same language as some sort of retort. Especially not when you’re employed in a position of power. You should never be allowed to use such language. Ever. That he was a cop makes it significantly worse, because you need to be a pillar of the community. Not one of the degenerates pulling the entire building down.

I’m specifically allowed to tell people not to use the terminology they use if it’s racist, derogatory, etc etc. The N- word here being a prime example. The K- word in RSA being another. I’d like to see anyone publically tell me to fuck off after I tell them not to use those words. Lol.

            As I said that cop was called nigger so many god damn things. Oh i’m sorry can I still say God?
            Anyway this is stupid news not worth anything. But because of people like you making this shit much bigger than it actually is… it’s like you want to fight against the real evil shit with non evil stupid trolling shit from Call of Duty Xbox Live.

            Was the black person beating up? No.
            Was the black person banned from Xbox Live or Call of Duty for being black? No.
            Was the black person called a nigger for running his mouth with the nigger word. Yes.
            It was just a dispute between 2 people. Which no1 should care about.

            Did the black person have the right to say the word nigger and all that other shit he said? Yes.
            Did the cop have a right to say the word nigger and that other shit he said? Yes. Both of them were talking shit.
            Now all I see are two people using their freedom of speech right in a dispute between each other.

            If the cop got fired then the nigger should have gone jail. Oh I guess I can’t joke anymore.

            Freedom of Speech is really important. Don’t fuck with peoples freedom of speech. even if that freedom of speech is racist, sexist, or whatever.

            Freedom of speech is not absolute. Please don’t cite it when it doesn’t even apply to this scenario. No one ever has the right to use hateful and discriminatory language, especially when that language evokes racist ideologies.

            In fact, you should refrain from posting more comments. I retract any permissions given to you in the past that you were capable or able to perform independent thought without adult supervision and should do so wherever possible. It is readily apparent you’re not ready for this responsibility.

            Ya take your pope shit and your not absolute shit and stick it up your ass.
            Freedom of speech is absolute. And if people are trying to fuck with freedom of speech then you should be wherry of that person.

            I get what you trying to say and how noble you trying to be. That man shouldn’t have lost his job over some stupid shit said on Xbox Live. You want to say racist but that man was not being racist. He said racist words but he was not being racist. Do you get it.

            Of the man refused to work with black people on the job. That’s being racist.

            In South Africa there are schools where they keep the black and white kids separate. That’s being racist.

            Don’t fuck with freedom of speech. It is absolute. Thinking it’s not is where the devil comes in.

            I am mocking you? No, sir. I openly deplore your line of reasoning as ridiculous and untenable. You cannot talk about human rights, freedom of speech and calling people the N- word in the same paragraph. It’s simply ridiculous. You don’t even understand the concepts you’re raising here. Take your right (as per your Freedom of Expression) to call people of colour a N- or K- racial slur to our constitutional courts and see just how far you get. I’d say best of luck, but you wouldn’t need luck. You’d need the Judge to be a presiding member of the KKK.

            I get that you find people who feel their logic sense reasoning is the best and no other can come close.

            I get that your hippie feelings, oh don’t call me a nigger, don’t call me a fag, don’t say my god is shit, you want to defend that.
            And yes freedom of speech can go along with the word nigger. I just did it there. Look.

            A man lost his job over some dumb shit on xbox live and for some reason you are ok with that type of shit because of your hippie feelings. Or was your logic and sense and reasoning because the word nigger was used. For the record the cop was called nigger so many times.

            The KKK. The KKK was not just a bunch of people calling black people niggers. If we today have a group of people just calling black people niggers because they don’t like black people, that’s fine, it’s their freedom of speech. Just go do it over there. A joke.
            The KKK hanged and killed black people because they didn’t like black people. It was not just words. It was a lot of ill shit done towards black people.

            It still seems you don’t get the difference between words and real racist shit.

            A man losing his job over some bullshit SAID on xbox live. That shit is not ok.

            I get your hippie nigger shit. but there’s a bigger issue at play here.

            The dude who owns the channel needs to be reprimanded in some way as well. So what if someone leaves me a message calling me this and that. Obviously the cop lost a game of COD against him hence the saltiness in which case you delete the message, report the user and block him. That’s how adults do it, not invite him to a party chat and proceed to use some if the most vulgar language Ive ever heard just to get a rise out of him and then put it on Youtube.

        One would think with his history with law enforcement that he’d be a little more jaded towards cops and their plights. Or maybe it is because he was so badly beaten up himself he has less sympathy with issues that do not involve violence?

            Really? I had no idea. My comment didn’t allude to as much at all. In fact, “or maybe it is because he was so badly beaten up himself” doesn’t at all hint that Rodney King was beaten up by cops. Nope.

            So.. Rodney King suffered that particular indignity in 1991. It’s currently 2015. Different prevailing ideologies about racism, I guess?

        The only problem is that IQ doesn’t automatically translate into common sense. You could be a genius and still do stupid stuff. What we need is for common sense to be more common. Perhaps Oprah can start giving that to everyone.

      The US police have been getting enough bad press lately, they cant afford to have any more.
      considering what other cops have gotten away with in the past, getting fired for this does seem pretty severe, but keeping him on would have set a precedent, which would lead to more severe cases.
      he was made an example of.

      hopefully it works, and hopefully it a sign that things are changing.

      I don’t necessarily agree about the role model part – I honestly think it’s because they’re in a position to abuse that power that they should be held to higher standards. We do not need people in power who are racist. It’s not useful to us at all.
