Instead of facing disciplinary action, a young New York City police officer resigned from his post and forfeited any benefits, including a pension, after an investigation found him guilty in a 2018 incident.
The now-former officer, Michael J. Reynolds, “broke into a black woman’s home in Tennessee and threatened her and her sons with a racist slur,” according to NBC News.
He was attending a bachelor party with a couple of colleagues when, according to the report, “He forced his way into a home … here Conese Halliburton lived with her children.”
