On Friday, an appellate court upheld the firing of an Arkansas police officer who was caught on camera drunkenly calling a man a “jigaboo.”
Former Little Rock police officer David Edgmon was caught on camera in 2010 arguing a with a group of African-American men.
Edgmon, 24, later admitted he was drunk when he confronted the men outside of Ernie Biggs Piano Bar and asked them to stop “blowing weed in my face.”
When he realized he was being filmed, Edgmon said, “Get out of my f---ing face. Get this illegal product, f---ing jigaboo s--- out of my f---ing face."
The video was later uploaded to YouTube.
