A racist NYPD officer has been thrown in jail for breaking into an unknowing Black woman’s home and calling her and her four young sons, “fu*king ni**ers”!
Michael J. Reynolds has reportedly been suspended but not fired from the NYPD after he drunkenly broke into Conese Halliburton’s Tennessee home, called her and her sons the N-word and threatened to hurt them. Despite the severity of his crime, Reynolds was only sentenced to a couple of weeks in jail for terrorizing the family.
According to the Tennessean, Halliburton was renting an AirBnB in Tennessee for her friend’s bachelor party back in September when Reynolds began “kicking in the front door of [Halliburton’s next door] 12 South-area home and charging in in the middle of the night. Video surveillance taken from a neighbor’s RING camera showed Reynolds screaming and threatening the family and using racial slurs.”
After the break-in, Halliburton said that her dogs tried to bite Reynolds but that he would not be deterred.
“He kept coming down the hall,” she said. “Nothing was holding him back. He was like, ‘This is my mother f—ing house’” while surveillance recorded Reynolds threatening them with racist and physical violence.
“Try to shoot me, and I’ll break every f—ing bone in your f—ing neck,” Reynolds said before calling them “fucking niggers.”
Halliburton called the police and they arrived to the scene. But, Reynolds was not arrested until days later and sentenced to just two weeks in jail and three years probation. Reynolds blamed his racist outburst on the alcohol he consumed and said he mistook Halliburton’s residence for the one he was renting next door with a group of NYPD cops.
According to the Tennessean, Reynolds “worked patrol in Manhattan” and while “he was suspended for 30 days from his job, and although he had been decommissioned,” he was still listed as a police officer in New York City as of Dec. 6.
