The cops were identified as Michael Kevin Piner, Jesse E. Moore II and James B. Gilmore.
Piner was hired by the Wilmington Police Department in 1998 while Moore and Gilmore have been there since 1997.
According to the internal investigation incident report, the video of the officers comments was found on June 4 during a monthly inspection of Piner’s vehicle and was classified in the system as an “accidental activation.”
While talking to Gilmore, Piner speaks about another officer Michael Scott, a Black man who he described as “bad news.”
Moore and Piner also criticized the police department with Moore especially coming after then interim Police Chief Donny Williams.
