Pro-Slavery Ohio Officer Resigns After Racist Posts On Social Media Are Revealed
Aaron McNamara, an auxiliary officer at the Fairview Park police department in Ohio, has resigned after the Cleveland Scene revealed some of his posts on social sites. McNamara dreamed of becoming a federal agent, but that aspiration was dashed out by his own views which were made public.
At first, McNamara denied the posts were made by him, telling the Cleveland Scene that they were not his accounts. Immediately after, those same accounts were deleted. On his letter of resignation, he claims those comments were made in his “youth,” which means he was a youngster in February of this year.
[su_center_ad]McNamara refers to blacks as “spooks,” “N*ggers” and “jungle monkeys” but he insists in his letter of resignation that he’s not “prejudice” [sic].
A few examples via the Cleveland Scene:
On Feb. 28 of this year, McNamara comments on a video called “Hood fight”:
“Abolishing slavery was the worst thing we could have done. These people should be exterminated.. Unbelievable.”
On a video called “State park fight”:
“I wish I could go back to their age and beat the living shit out of that nigger with the tapout shirt.”
On a video called “Cameras capture brutal cop taking down agent Derrick while bicycling home”:
“THE COPS WERE DOING THEIR JOBS!
YOU WANTED TO BE MR. FUNNY GUY AND NOT STOP!
AND YOUR FRIENDS ARE FUCKING PATHETIC AND IGNORANT FOR ASKING THE SAME QUESTION OVER AND OVER ‘WHY IS HE BEING ARRESTED?!’ BECAUSE THE FEMININE FAGGOT WAS ELUDING THE POLICE AND FAILING TO STOP! DUMB ASS GENERATION!”
On a video called “Seattle Police: ‘You are going to die'”
“YOU CAN TAKE THE SPOOK OUT OF THE HOOD BUT YOU CAN’T TAKE THE HOOD OUT OF THE SPOOK. BY SPOOK I MEAN THAT TALL NIGGER IN THE WHITE TEE WHO LOST HIS GANG BANGING BROTHER WHO OBVIOUSLY DID SOME SHIT TO GET HIS BITCH ASS SHOT UP.”
On Ferguson protesters, he wrote, “You’ll burn the American flag but you’re quick to cash that Obama check! Parasites.”
He has many more tweets of that caliber, according to the Scene.
McNamara’s letter of resignation via NewsNet5:
I, Aaron McNamara was recently informed of the racial remarks I posted on Youtube.com in my juvenile years. The comments I made in those particular videos were a product of my youth and immaturity; by no means am I a prejudice individual. I am an advocate for equality, and I am highly disappointed in myself for the statements I had previously made. I cannot recollect of the most recent comment I was accused of making in February, 2014, but I am not denying the claim.
By no means do the comments I had previously made represent the beliefs of the Fairview Park Police Dept. I have striven to the best of my capabilities to support the city of Fairview Park, and help better community relations with all individuals, from all walks of life.
At my current age of (20), I am ashamed of myself for making those particular remarks, and I am extremely regretful of it. if there was any way possible I could retract those statements, I would be glad to do so.
All prejudice remarks were strictly on Youtube.com. I have a Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and I have never made a racial slur on any of those networks.
I am also confirming that I am resigning from the Fairview Park Police Auxiliary Unit.
McNamara is 20-years-old and some of those posts were made this year.
The police department released a statement:
After close of business yesterday, an email was received from Doug Brown, Staff writer at Cleveland Scene Magazine, concerning racially charged comments made by a member of our volunteer auxiliary force and posted to the internet.
An investigation was immediately initiated and a request was sent to Mr Brown asking him to provide any and all information, including user/account names, video, pictures and posts. This request was sent so that we could verify that the author of the posts was indeed our volunteer, as it was indicated by Mr. Brown that all accounts had been closed and no longer able to be viewed online. That information has not yet been received.
Volunteers in the Auxiliary Force are non-sworn members with no arrest authority. They assist with parades, traffic control, service oriented calls and locking up our parks. The volunteer had been with our agency less than six months and was not yet even allowed out on his own, having only put in 45 hours in the last 5 months.
The City of Fairview Park does not tolerate this type of conduct from any person working or volunteering for this city. During his brief tenure with our agency, the volunteer never displayed any prejudicial leanings, nor did any arise during his background check. In the course of the investigation, he was interviewed, and upon it’s conclusion, was asked to resign. He is no longer a member of our agency.
