A Detroit police officer faces possible disciplinary action for admitting to assaulting city residents, and insulting those he’s sworn to serve and protect as- “garbage” and “assholes”.
Officer Daniel Wolff, who works in the second precinct, was responding to a Facebook post about the end to police residency within the city limits. He went on to respond with a slew of offensive and incriminating comments as reported by the Motor City Muckracker .
Wolff, who lives in the suburbs, said he would never live within city limits, which he described as “just a nasty place.”
“Getting rid of residency was the best thing that ever happened to the Detroit Police!!!!!” Wolff posted on the Muckraker’s Facebook page. “We have to police the garbage but you can’t make us live in the garbage.”
Detroit was listed as America’s most dangerous city of 2016 , much of the crime rose with the collapse of the economy and infrastructure after the city declared bankruptcy in 2013. Despite this, as an officer paid by the the city and the its citizens that pay his salary- all Wolff had was contempt.
The officer also complained about cell phone cameras, which he said prevented police from violently abusing random people.
“This job is not the same job that it was. It’s all videotaped and whatever,” Wolff posted. “You can’t walk up to a kid or asshole and smack him in the face like we did.”
Wolff claimed in another comment that he’d engaged in that type of random violence before.
“Smacked them in the face?!!!” Wolff posted. “I hit them with handcuffs in the head you democrat.”
Wolff’s comments were brought to the attention of Detroit’s police chief, who said the officer would be held accountable if he had indeed made those statements.
One of Wolff’s neighbors said he wasn’t surprised by the officer’s comments, reported WJBK-TV.
“He did walk pass when I was being assaulted,” said the neighbor, who declined to be identified. “My ex-husband was giving me a lot of trouble. He walked right past me in uniform and did not help at all. It really messes with your head to have a cop walk past in uniform and not care you’re being prevented from leaving your home.”
Craig said the officer is currently off-duty and disabled.
The Muckraker’s Steve Neavling, who posted the article, notified Wolff, a die-hard Donald Trump supporter, that he had reported his statements to internal affairs.
“Please do,” Wolff said. “I’ve been trying to get fired for years you c*nt. Help me you ass.”
As the investigation is under way, Wolff may just get the firing he’s been working so hard to achieve. The hard working citizens he called garbage, in the city he called garbage- are better, and quite frankly safer- without Wolff on the payroll.
