ENGLAND, ARKANSAS – An England police officer has been fired after a video was posted on Facebook of him telling a group of black men that they “don’t belong” in his city.
Although the video was posted on Tuesday, it was filmed on July 21 by Demarcus Bunch in his hometown. He and his cousin Shannon Scribner were in town shooting a music video.
The article goes on to state the following:
They told us the from the first moments they entered the small town of nearly 3,000 people that Officer Mike Moore was on their heels.
“With all the racial discrimination that’s going on across the world, will I be another victim? Will I be a statistic?” Bunch asked.
Both Bunch and Scribner said they weren’t doing anything wrong and think that Moore and Chief Danna Powell should be held accountable for his actions.
Bunch said that while they were filming a part of their video, the officer allegedly slowed down and parked nearby until the group packed up and left.
“I was wondering, ‘Why is he doing this,” Bunch wondered. “We’re in small England. Everybody knows everybody.”
Feeling uncomfortable, Bunch and the filming crew went to their final shooting location.
The officer pulled in shortly after them.
“He slowed down again just to see what we were doing,” Bunch said. “That’s when my cousin and I said, ‘Let’s go let him know who we are and what we are doing.’”
Bunch and Scribner’s uncle is also an England police officer.
In the video recorded by Bunch that was posted on Facebook, the group talks to Moore.
