Jesse Moore Fired From Job
The firings happened the day after a new Black police chief, Donny Williams, was named in a unanimous decision, but the investigation started on June 4 when the sergeant responsible for monthly video audits found files labeled as “accidental activations” and heard conversations between the officers that were full of racist remarks and disparaging comments about the WPD and some of its officers.
Some of the most shocking came from officer Piner, who spoke about how he’s ready for a civil war, saying, soon “we are just gonna go out and start slaughtering them f****n n***ers. I can’t wait. God, I can’t wait.”
Moore Racist Recording
Moore was on the phone with Piner, Moore started talking about an arrest he’d made the day before in which he referred to the woman arrested as a “negro” and “n***er” several times, according to the investigation report. He said, “She needed a bullet in her head right then and move on. Let’s move the body out of the way and keep going.”
To that Piner responded, “That’s what I’ve been trying to tell you.”
Moore continued his story, referring to the woman he arrested multiple times as a “bitch” and a “crazy bitch” and complained the officer who came to assist him did not want to break her car window when she wasn’t compliant.
To that Piner said, “he’s a p***y … they’re all p*****s.”
Moore went on to refer to the African American magistrate that the woman he arrested went in front of as a “p***y” for suggesting maybe she needed substance abuse treatment more than jail. Piner said to that, “No he’s black.”
Moore said drug addiction is a “crutch” and that “God has a special place in hell for people like that,” referring to the magistrate. “I hope they burn in hell man…hate em. It’s bad because not all black people are like that,” he said, followed by, “90 percent of ’em Kevin, 90 f*****g percent.”
According to the investigation report, when questioned about the recordings all three officers admitted to it being their voices and to make the comments.
Officer Moore wanted it noted that when he called Piner he was off duty and at home. He said he is not racist, he was just venting to his friend about an arrest.
The report says Moore said, “the call combined with the situation with the recent protests had him extremely stressed and he is very embarrassed about the things he said in the video.” He told investigators he doesn’t normally speak like that but was feeding off of Piner and venting.
