COPA investigating viral CPD video

A Chicago police officer’s interaction with two black men is going viral, and now under investigation. In the video, the officer appears to boast about killing people while throwing out expletives.

The CPD officer identifies his last name as Hunt after being asked why he was not wearing a badge. He also goes on to say, “how about I lock you up for walking in the street.” After the exchange the officer gets out of his car and starts walking with them through a park Auburn Gresham, telling the men they can’t film him.

COPA now says they are investigating. If you have any information on the incident in the video, you’re encouraged to give them a call.
