WARRENSVILLE HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) — A black female police officer in suburban Cleveland is getting a lot of attention after posting a video on Facebook with her reaction to Tuesday’s fatal police shooting of a black man in Louisiana.
Nakia Jones says she was so upset after watching the video-recorded killing in Baton Rouge that she wanted to quit the police force in Warrensville Heights.
She says she became a police officer to make a difference in people’s lives and that anyone who’s afraid of black people should take off their uniform.
Her impassioned reaction has been watched more than 3 million times since it was posted to her Facebook page Wednesday.
She says white officers who are racist have no business working in a black community.
Messages were left with the police department and the officer.
