GBI investigating West Point officer accused of saying N-word on doorbell camera

 GBI investigating West Point officer accused of saying N-word on doorbell camera

A police officer from West Point is being investigated for alleged misconduct following a complaint, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The complaint comes from a homeowner who claims that Ring doorbell camera footage shows the officer using racial slurs and throwing the camera into the bushes. The video has been shared numerous times on social media.

Tomeshia Madden, the homeowner, says that she and her teenage son no longer feel comfortable living in West Point after hearing what the officer said outside their house. They are now seeking a new city to live in.

The Ring doorbell video, which is approximately two minutes long, shows two West Point police officers arriving at the home. The first officer appears to be waiting for someone to answer the door, while the second walks up and says something unintelligible, according to the GBI.

Madden says she heard the officer say "all these f-ing n**s have cameras in this neighborhood." She claims the officer then threw the camera into the bushes, allegedly attempting to conceal evidence.

Madden and her attorney, Wendell Major, believe that the officer's actions erode the community's trust in law enforcement. "It is not appropriate for public officials to make racially derogatory terms during their duties," Major said. He added that the officer, in uniform, concealed evidence of what happened.

The West Point Police Department confirmed that the officer is one of their own but declined to comment further while the GBI investigates. The officer has been placed on administrative leave while the investigation is ongoing. Once complete, the case file will be handed over to the Coweta Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s office for review.
