RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Richmond police are conducting an investigation after a video shows an officer shouting an obscenity at a group of middle-school students.
The video, taken Thursday, shows an officer in a patrol car shouting “Wait until your asses turn 18, then you’re mine,” before driving away from a group of girls. It’s unclear what precipitated the confrontation.
A mother of one of the girls tells newsoutlets that the officer was white and the girls were all persons of color.
A police spokeswoman issued a statement saying the department takes the incident seriously. It is being investigated by internal affairs officers.
Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney called the behavior depicted in the video unacceptable.
