Watch: Suburban Police Harass Black Family, Call Them Disgusting Racial Slur

Ladies and gentlemen: This is your America.


In Montgomery, Illinois, about 45 minutes outside of Chicago, two police officers have been caught on camera targeting, harassing, assaulting, and wrongfully arresting an African American family in the overwhelmingly white town—including calling the family a "bunch of fucking niggers."

But they were fired, right? Because this would be damning evidence of racial bias unfit for officers of the law, right?

Nah. Not even close. The officers were given a three-day suspension.

Yeah. For real.

Please see the horrendous video below, which shows George Taylor being illegally targeted by police over and over again.
