Louisiana Cop Resigns Over Racist Texts Hoping For A ‘Ferguson’ To Take Out ‘African Monkeys’
A Baton Rouge Police Officer accused of sending a string of racist text messages has resigned and criminal charges are still a possibility. Michael Elsbury, who has been with the department for about 15 years, still faces a criminal investigation even though he resigned, Cpl. Don Coppola, a Baton Rouge Police spokesman said.

Another text stated, “I wish someone would pull a Ferguson on them and take them out. I hate looking at those African monkeys at work…I enjoy arresting those thugs with their saggy pants.”
WBRZ reports that Chief Dabadie said that behavior will not be tolerated on the force, and said he was “sick to his stomach” after he read what the officer allegedly wrote.
WBRZ obtained the texts on Wednesday before Elsbury’s resignation.
