Gigionthat.com has learned The Georgia police officer that was caught telling a woman at a DUI stop that “we only kill black people” has decided to retire.
I’m sure it was in the making that Cobb County police Lt. Greg Abbott would lose his job for the comments he made, which became public last week. But he beat his department to the punch and decided to retire early after over 20 years on the job.
“He is entitled to his retirement, which he would’ve received even if he was fired,” Heaton said.
Abbott’s lawyer said his client’s comments “must be observed in their entirety to understand their context.” Lance J. LoRusso said in a statement Abbott was “attempting to gain compliance by using the passenger’s own statements and reasoning to avoid making an arrest.”
Yet despite Russo’s attempted justification of Abbott’s remarks, Cobb County police Chief Mike Register said the statements were “inexcusable and inappropriate” and was not a reflection of the type of environment or culture he’s attempting to cultivate in the department.
