NYPD Cop Facing Prison After Breaking Into Family’s Home, Calling them “N*ggers”

While on vacation in Nashville, Tennessee, NYPD cop Michael J. Reynolds kicked open the door of a house and terrorized the Black family inside.

The incident, which was caught on surveillance camera, happened around 2:30 a.m. on July 9, 2018. The police officer had been out drinking that night and confused the home of Conese Halliburton with the Airbnb he was staying at nearby.

Reynolds kicked open the door of the house, forced his way inside and shouted, “This is my motherf*cking house!”

Conese Halliburton was at home with her four sons, ages 20, 17, 11 and 8. Her older sons demanded Reynolds leave their home while she called 911.

The neighbor’s surveillance camera captured Reynolds saying, “Try to shoot me, and I’ll break every f*cking bone in your f*cking neck,” and calling them “f*cking n*ggers.”

Upon arriving, Nashville cops did not arrest Reynolds that night and news of the incident was not reported until more than a month after the incident. At that time police said they were “still investigating” the incident.

The NYPD said the cop was suspended without pay “for a time” but he was then placed on “modified duty,” meaning he was receiving a paycheck.

Reynolds pleaded no contest to three counts of assault. He will be sentenced in November.

Sons 20, 17, 11, let some cracka talk to their mom, like that calling them niggers and did not have his ass handed to him? They should BEAT HIS ASS and dealt with the consequences later. They would have been well within their rights to defend themselves. I am so SICK OF THIS RACIST SHIT!

Nah they did just right, now they can sue the badge and pants off of him

This was a cop. If they had retaliated against him, they would be dead. It’s not worth dying over. Get your priorities straight.

John September 24, 2019 at 5:10 am

When I tell you his drunk yass would have been looking like a he fought against a rolling tank, believe it. The racist punk drove home drunk. How do I know, the story only mentions him. He got his job too. People are fed up with that BS.

LaJuan October 16, 2019 at 3:04 pm

Once it has been determined that the black man in question might be an African American, there open up a “No Hold Bar” attitude. Once again not safe being Black. Our right to exist will not every share by a majority of white. A few maybe!!

Isaac Cotton September 30, 2019 at 9:28 am

He would have left my house in a body bag

Ramona Brown r October 3, 2019 at 1:06 am

The racist police would have come in and murdered the entire BLACK family!!! Of course
you want to retaliate! However; that gives them
an excuse to murder BLACK people as usual!!!

Dannie KanDallas Foster October 21, 2019 at 1:29 am

OBVIOUSLY THEY NEED NO EXCUSE, they are already decimating black families at will without consequence, which is exactly what POLICE WERE FOUNDED TO DO and GIVEN FEDERAL MANDATE to do so by THE 13th Amendment MISSOURI COMPROMISE, which is THREE, not 1 Amendment, its why its called a COMPROMISE of 11, 12 AND 13, 11 gave federal mandate to a practice began JUNE 14, 1502 @ Plymouth Rock Village, Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts Bay Colony, practiced in all colonies, territories and states LEGALLY from that point till 1863, in 1861, ENSLAVEMENT OF and BREEDING FOR ENSLAVEMENT of BLACK PEOPLE, 12 gave a FEDERAL: MANDATE to the enforcement wing of the laws of SLAVERY a FEDERAL MANDATE, changing the name from SLAVE CATCHERS to PLANTATION SLAVE PATROL POLICE; 13 INSTITUTED THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE STRUCTURE via division of states and territories, BEGINNING with MISSOURI TERRITORY into CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS based on the AREA SIZE of the state or territory vs its POPULATION DENSITY as the CONSTITUTION PLAINLY STIPULATES be done, each district with an ELECTORAL REPRESENTATIVE all of which are charged to vote the state or territory in favor of THE SIDE OF ANY VOTE that garnered THE MOST POPULAR VOTES, even those who cast OPPOSING VOTES are voted in favor of those who vote in favor; 1st ELECTORAL COLLEGE TO VOTE, MISSOURI TERRITORY in a STATUS QUO TO SHOW ELECTORAL REPRESENTATIVE REFERENDUM VOTE, status quo to show being that of BLACK PEOPLE in the TERRITORY of MISSOURI maintained by SLAVE CATCHERS to be so maintained in same as a STATE BY PLANTATION SLAVE PATROL POLICE so as to RATIFY THE TERRITORY of MISSOURI in THE US HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES as a STATE in COMPROMISE over the ISSUE OF SLAVERY, this vote was cast in THE TERRITORIAL CAPITOL DISTRICT, St. Louis City, St. Louis County, MISSOURI TERRITORY but COUNTED in WASHINGTON DC in the US HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES later in 1861 after the vote was cast, which came in evenly divided along the southern St. Louis County LINE, making it henceforth THE MASON and DIXON LINE above which some but not all blacks under some circumstance could b FREE, FREED or born to birth of such free, born to birth FREE, while south of same NO BLACK COULD EVER BE OTHER THAN SLAVE and or BRED INTO SLAVERY, neither northern nor southern Missouri Blacks with right to vote or education of public funding on public OR private Land, EVEN THOSE FREE WHO PAID THE TAXES THAT SUPPORTED SUCH public funding, THIS IS THE only ever difference between A slave AND A free state OR territory, IN A FREE, SOME BUT NOT ALL BLACKS COULD BE FREE, IN A SLAVE none could. IN 1863, 2 YEARS AFTER THE civil war broke out over the issue of slavery that WAS TO HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED IN COMPROMISE BY THE MISSOURI COMPROMISE, THE 14TH AMENDMENT REPEALED THE 11TH, AND THREW THE 12 INTO abeyance(AS IN non enforceable) UNTIL 1868 WHEN IT WAS reconstituted IN ORDER TO ratify the territory OF texas AS A state, WHICH WAS THE LAST STATE OR territory TO REMOVE LAWS OF SLAVERY FROM ITS CONSTITUTION, RELIEVING police organizations OF any authority to enforce a penalty of having broken ANY LAW on any citizen or resident, in the interim between 1863 and 1868 POLICE became SLAVE TURNERS like those depicted in the Black Film BUCK and THE PREACHER w/ Sidney Portier and Harry Belafonte and FOUNDERS OF THE KU KLUX KLAN NIGHT RIDERS, like those depicted in the Black film Django W/ Jamie Fox, when 12 was reconstituted, COMMAND and ADMINISTRATIVE CADRE of all federally mandated POLICING ORGANIZATIONS were drawn from their Ranks, and STILL ARE, on contention they were the only ones with ANY POLICING EXPERIENCE, and they founded THE FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE UNION of this cadre in policing organizations, in the early 1920’s this cadre formed a rank and file union called THE POLICE UNION and a FAILED TENNESSEE DOCTOR Samuel Bowers renamed THEIR CIVILIAN ENTITY ARM the KU KLUX KLAN IN NASHVILLE TN, AND the legacy OF THE FEDERAL MANDATING OF ENSLAVING AND BREEDING INTO SLAVERY OF BLACK FOLK BY the MISSOURI COMPROMISE 13TH AMENDMENT, HOW I KNOW IS ON 9/11/1949 I WAS BIRTHED @ 4818 Evans street, St. Louis, St. Louis County, Missouri, not only is it my RIGHT, but as well MY OBLIGATION TO KNOW HOW MY STATE OF BIRTH BECAME A STATE and why its STATE MOTTO is “THE SHOW ME STATE”. since the MISSOURI COMPROMISE the ELECTORAL COLLEGE only votes in GUBERNATORIAL and PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS, so as to MAINTAIN and sustain THE NATION is as close as THE MARKET OF VOTERS WILL BARE to the CONDITIONS OF SLAVERY, so miss a FULLY CIVICALLY RESPONSIBLE PATRIOT with the NONSENSE of COP apology and excuse since this is why POLICE are called COPS, quick to cop to any available excuse for the wholesale oppression, suppression and decimation of BLACK FAMILIES and those of OTHER COLORS not considered WHITE, FACTS FOLKS, NOT FICTION and speculation…if by skin color u believe exists more than one race of humanity, then by the very definition of the word u r a RACIST, if u believe that among any skin color gradient based on FACIAL/BODY structure(EUGENICS) u believe more than one race of humanity exists among them then by the very definition of the words u r a RACIST who is a FASCIST, neither of which can b defended against, much less defeated by being a racist/fascist ur damn self, LIKE RELIGION and anything borne thereof these are NOT FACTS, they are plausible THEORIES that are yet a FALLACY(FALSEHOOD, LIE) since by review in light of known established facts of actual PHYSICAL REALITY, they can never be established as anything BUT A FALLACY and LIE, which means a DICTION in NARRATIVE of PRECONCEIVED thought and belief that can never constitute FACT and TRUTH when examined in the light of known established facts and truth, since in order to believe they are facts and truth u must IGNORE FACTS and TRUTH that u could and thereby SHOULD KNOW and ABIDE BY, something i do not do is IGNORE what i know in favor of my own thoughts and beliefs, much less those of other folk, and i do not have Black vs White issues, i have wrong VS right ISSUES WHERE WRONG IS USED TO TRUMP OVER right, BECAUSE i know HOW TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN WHAT I KNOW AND WHAT I THINK AND BELIEVE, I CAN AS WELL DISTINGUISH BETWEEN WHAT OTHERS KNOW AND WHAT THEY THINK AND BELIEVE… Knowledge is concrete and tangibly verified, thought and belief is INTANGIBLE and can neither verify nor invalidate anything of actual physical reality, since they are contained ONLY IN THE SPIRIT OF THE MIND and are thereby LIKE THE MIND, PHYSICALLY INTANGIBLE by any number and acuity of 5 common senses of actual physical reality common in some number and acuity in all 5 segments of ANIMALS, Mammal( which is what humans are), Fish, Fowl AND Reptile, any who has any has COMMON SENSE, how smart one is is a matter of HOW MUCH THEY ACTUALLY PHYSICALLY KNOW in their TANGIBLE BRAIN vs HOW MUCH of same they IGNORE in order to support and suit their own personal THOUGHTS and belief, its called IGNORANCE and ONLY HUMANITY is capable of it, in all other animals its called BASE INSTINCT, in HUMAN animals BASE INSTINCT is called COMMON SENSE and is gained of some amount of EXPERIENCE of some number and acuity of the 5 common senses, same as it is in all other ANIMAL LIFE

Ron Mack The statement you made is all together factual and I couldn’t have said it better myself!

brotherap October 4, 2019 at 1:12 pm

Most of these Negroes are simply too kind, whether them in Tennessee or those down in Dallas that give these worthless cowards a pass while they hide behind the badge and color of authority. You break in anyone’s home in virtually any state, your ass can be and maybe should be killed with virtually no chance of the shooter going to jail. This fool should have at least gotten his head cracked for sure for this type of ignorant behavior.

Jenifer November 8, 2019 at 1:19 am

I am sorry but I have had people confuse my place and I did the same when I first move to my townhouse because they all look the same and there is no good lighting at night to see house numbers. I don’t know I could live with myself for killing someone especially if I am upstairs and the person is downstairs not even close to me. In many states unless the person endangers you you cannot just shot them. If they sho t that cop they most likely would be in jail instead of the cop. Justice is not fair to blacks. They did the right thing.

Roy D Spooner October 6, 2019 at 10:13 am

Yes they could’ve beaten his ass because he was trespassing on their property. He’s lucky Nashville is not Castle Doctrine. They could’ve killed him the moment he entered their home. He was off duty and not in uniform. They would have every right to kill him.

Fred October 22, 2019 at 12:05 pm

People kill me sitting at home lying about what they would done if it were them. This family did what they figured was right at the time and lived to tell the tale. Who knows what they would have done in that situation. I don’t disagree with any of the statements, how this is her story, why not support her and her family on this journey. The internet had opened a door and folks use it as a platform to criticize every incident that occurs in the world. But, they don’t step up and stop the crime within their own communities. “I would done this or that”. Give me a break.

Caroline moss October 17, 2019 at 11:17 am

If it had been the other way around, the cop would only get 10 yrs with 5 suspended.

Randy Philips October 21, 2019 at 1:34 pm

You are absolutely right! However that poor mother would’ve been attending the funerals of all her sons, because when the local white police show up and see a group of young blacks beating on a white man, they will kill first and ask questions later. That seems to be the law of the land nowadays. They didn’t even punish that NY cop for calling them “niggers”… Everybody wants us dead bruh!

Paula Fay September 19, 2019 at 12:59 pm

I am shocked that he was not arrested that night! What is going on here?! This guy is extremely dangerous! Not only should he be in jail, but he should NEVER be allowed to work as a police officer or carry a weapon of any kind!

Ann September 23, 2019 at 8:08 am

Why do people think that the cop should have been arrested. They Were in Tennessee that’s a southern state and he was white. Does not matter if he was a cop. He was white. We keep acting surprised.

Jenifer November 8, 2019 at 1:24 am

He was drunk and he enter a home that was not his which is trespassing. The guy was lucky he was not shot and probably was not because the family did not have a gun.. People are paranoid today and shot almost anything including their own family member who comes home from a trip early and did not tell anyone until they enter the house. It is unbelievable how people are when afraid and then have a gun in their hand.

Debbi September 23, 2019 at 12:19 pm

They need to sue Tennessee and NYC for the behavior of their Police Officer because that’s a direct deflection on that NYPD….Then Tennessee didnt arrest him hell yes sue them too….how dare these damn racist ass people…

Rebecca Gomez September 19, 2019 at 1:07 pm

The white nationalism running the white cop police departments, should not shock us, and just like this racist white cop, there are hundreds walking the streets, searching for the next colored victim, that it is high time in America, to put a stop to this racist criminal acts by thugs who shouldn’t even be cops and just what, profile is required when hiring a white racist pig who calls himself a cop, because police brutality is prevalent in many states including Texas not to mention those states where white oppression of the black people is obvious and continuing to this day that the only way to change this is to remove the white nationalist from the fake white house who encourages the police racist brutality we see today, taking into consideration that any joe dick or jane, can be a cop based on the psychological poor standards when hiring cops who decade after decade do the same abuse of power and police brutality since the 1960’s and Dr. King and Kennedy may be gone but we’re here! We are here to say no more police brutality! and the day an intruder walks into your house and does what this white swine pig did shoot him down in your grounds of self defense, or what the hell is this world coming too>?

Larry Ramos September 19, 2019 at 5:46 pm

Don’t offer bullshit racist comments about condemning racists acts against Blacks or people of color. I Don’t Buy it. I personally know many Mexicans. While I can not speak for the masses, the majority are racists against people of color including Blacks. Sorry, I don’t buy your racist rant!

Caroline Mills October 17, 2019 at 11:21 am

YALL just gotta point a finger! I’m sorry but some whites hate blacks a whole lot more than blacks hating yall. Sad but true. Something most of yall cant handle— the TRUTH!

Rebecca Gomez September 19, 2019 at 1:14 pm

Fire the chief of police! for knowingly and intentionally, covering up this crime by keeping silent about and refusing to take the appropiate action required so that he can be an example and start clearing up to the white nationalism in this nation, dudes, Blacks and Browns, Asians Chinese and Native Americas, are here to stay generation after generation we shall rise in self defense of our communities, families, schools, students and streets! We refuse as the now in the majority latinos! to accept the way the African American communities and families and Blacks on the streets are mistreated when every white cops ego dream is to kill a black based on all the crime on black people in this Country we all have seen and refuse to accept, as a normal way of living in a country built by African American slaves, and latino migrants, who built Trump Towers, only to have our faces spat at by the white nationalist fake president, soon to be removed from the power to destroy America. Shame on you, Chief for hiding this terrible abuse of power from us and for being an accomplice to corruption.

Rebecca Gomez September 19, 2019 at 1:25 pm

I am one Mexican American from the State of Texas who has for years and continue to condemn all criminal acts against the Latino and African American races in the USA and it is time for the blacks and browns to unite on the front that what hurts one black and one Latino family, hurts all our families and so united in the name of peace in God’s name the time has come to unite, with those whites that may not be racists, and all races, to change the way things operate in this country when it comes to equality of rights and respect for people whose skins are not white, as only imbecils and idiots, differentiate a person by skin color, due to the mediocrity of a mind who would dare to consider skin color as an indication of level of intelligence, when we all know this is not true. Trump and Republicans should start getting their life jackets and life boats they will need in the blue wave 2020, coming to make sure that all police brutality, and gun violence with assault weapons ends, and to make sure, Medicare and Social Security remain stable and strong as well as students and schools, get to operate without the pressures of a shooter walking in doing Trump’s bidding when Trump spreads and encourages unfit white racist cops to commit the crimes they do on America and racist followers, to commit the crimes they do with assault weapons.; Blue Wave ,making sure that black and brown children get to make it to high school; with safer streets without war weapons on the streets of America and thug cops, who due to their racist hate should not even be walking the streets much less in a job where it takes a gun to make the nut feel superior. I condemn~! from the bottom of my heart and top of my lungs, all criminal acts of police brutality on blacks, browns, whites and every color of people.

They should investigate all cases this PIG handel. Ever black person that this PIG arrested should be evaluated.

White men with authority using calling black people NIGGERS are very dangerous, and should be put on the wacth list.


This was a cover-up, and whoever the PIG was that handle the case should also be investigated.

The black family should sue the Nashville police department, and the NYPD

Dear police ; Incidents like this only proves that your organization is out of control , corrupt, unscrupulous and worthy of the disdain many have towards your practices! Get rid of the bad apples !!! Why is that so hard ?

Caroline Mills October 17, 2019 at 11:23 am

Because they are all in on the corruption!!!

Darrell September 28, 2019 at 1:28 pm

Another prime example of white cops hating blacks and their department defending them. Tell us the excuse what does race have to do with it like you always say. And could this have went the same as in Texas where one of the residents get killed and the excuse wrong house like wrong apartment bs…

Why?

Sonia October 1, 2019 at 9:44 pm

This jerk is such an ass and stupid at that. This racist , like so many others, needs a beating to knock some sense into his pathetic brain. Lock him up and throw away the key.

Trevor Noah October 2, 2019 at 8:29 am

This is absolute propaganda. For no reason would I ever take the side of a police officer, but whenever the story is completely made up in order to advance some sort of racist agenda, then I do see a problem with it. And yes, black people can be racists too.

Bee100 October 2, 2019 at 3:02 pm

Problem is we keep identifying ourselves as Negro ,African American ,and Black. In Law those entities holds no status. That’s why they can shoot us dead in the streets. In law we aren’t even considered humans claiming those as a status. “Colorable law” look it up..

L.A.. Nononsense October 4, 2019 at 6:14 pm

It took forever for the local cops to even report it. They were shielding their fellow cop —- the blue wall of silence. And this azzhole shoulda been fired. But, no, they rewarded him with less duty and continued his paycheck. Rude and racist pig, that’s what he is. If he had been killed or injured, the local cops would be charging and harassing the family —- even though the drunken intruder was in the wrong.

Eric M October 5, 2019 at 9:18 am

Stop being so fucking weak minded. Its your home and you have the right to defend it even with deadly force. It does not matter if the assailant is a cop or not. Believe me, if the rules were reversed, the black cop would be dead. The only way for black people to get the respect they deserve is to show we are willing to stand up for families.

Sonia October 5, 2019 at 8:37 pm

Just another psycho racist running amuck.

I would’ve SHOT THEE S H I T ! ! outtakes his ass UNAPOLOGETICALLY!! I would’ve emptied my gun into him.

Why is it when shit like this occurs, it’s favorable for/to white men and women to behave this way towards POC, for it to blithely exused, but if/when POC complain, protest, express ANGER, get dissed and dismissed by the PTB, OUR (POC) actions are being labeled as “divisive”? It’s as if you’re (white people) are saying to us (POC) “How dare you complain and put up a fuss about how we whites treat you! You’d be better just dealing with it and keep taking it!”

I would’ve blasted his racist heart out of his body, WHOLLY AND TOTALLY in defense of my family, myself, and my home JUST AS IT IS MY RIGHT to do so, and faced the consequences of my actions, knowing I was well within my rights as a human being.
