Cop Admits He Made a Black Man Sing, Dance Like Chimp On {VIDEO}


A Michigan police officer admitted to making an African American man sing and dance like a chimp, and recording it, according to CBS Detroit:

A Grosse Pointe Park police officer has been removed from duty after admitting he shot a demeaning video of a mentally-challenged African American man.

The officer’s name is not being released.

He told a man identified as 55 year-old Michael Scipio of Detroit to sing and make animal noises while the officer recorded the incident with his cell phone camera

Scipio lives near the Detroit-Grosse Pointe Park border and has had previous contact with police in the suburb.

Grosse Pointe Park spokesman Greg Bowens says “An officer has stepped forward to take responsibility and has been removed from duty pending the conclusion of an investigation.”

Bowens offered an apology, saying “This is not a true reflection of the people of the City of Grosse Pointe Park.”


Several police officers from the Grosse Pointe Park PoliceDepartment in Michigan are being accused of filming Blacks in humiliating situations and sharing the videos for their own twisted amusement.

Now one of the men, Scipio (pictured), who is mentally challenged and allegedly made to sing and dance like a chimp in one of the videos, spoke to My Fox Detroit about the scandal.

The 55-year-old man, who lives in a boarding house, told the news outlet that he has no recollection as to when the video was filmed. He makes his living collecting cans in the ritzy Detroit suburb and claims he runs into police frequently. Scipio, whose speech is affected and has some cognitive issues as well, told Fox 2 Detroit that he was unaware he was the subject of the officers’ amusement and actually thought they were his friends.

“They made me look like a fool, humiliated me,” he said.

Watch news story below:

Minister Malik Shabazz, who heads the Garvey Movement/New Black Panther Nation in Detroit, has taken the reigns regarding this controversial issue. He, along with other activists, met with Police Chief David Hiller and the city’s attorney on Wednesday to demand that the officers involved in the alleged acts be fired. After a lengthy discussion, Shabazz has agreed to allow the police chief to delve further into the controversial case.

Grosse Pointe has a population of 46,000 residents and covers an area of about 10.4 square miles. The area is one of the most affluent suburban sections in Metro Detroit. The racial makeup is 85 percent White and has a police force of about two dozen officers, none of whom are Black.

Even though more than a dozen demeaning videos of Black men were sent and forwarded from the phones of Grosse Pointe Park police officers, reportedly no officers have even been disciplined yet because the matter is still under investigation.

I hate the word Minority, it means looser. This is sick which is no sicker than these little punks out here making black people once again look like animals playing this insane game, ya'll already know, "Knockout", what do we say to that? This world is a huge jungle with every species who has the gift of verbal speech running mindless across the globe. We are living under the number 13, believe it or not. Everybody has lost their damn minds!!! White people disrespecting and killing niggas all year long. Black people, Children, man and womb-man killing niggas all year long. Nothing will happen to any of these devils until they have a reason to take us who wish to live in peace seriously. Until then, these news reports will be just that, blog reports. I or my pops would have died that day, believe that ish if the police would have pulled that ish!!!!! I don't know what to say to all of this madness!!!
