Black cop fired after intervening on chokehold: I lost everything

Black cop fired after intervening on chokehold: I lost everything 1

 

Officials in Buffalo, New York, want an investigation into the firing of a black police officer who intervened when a white colleague had a suspect in a chokehold.
The incident happened in November 2006. At the time, Officer Cariol Horne had served 19 of the 20 years needed to receive her pension, a spokesperson for Horne told CNN.
But Horne was fired for intervening and did not qualify for her pension, the city said.
"The message was sent that you don't cross that blue line and so some officers — many officers don't," said Horne in an interview with CNN's Brianna Keilar.

    Not only should she be compensated for all of those years. Cariol law should be passed as well.

      Wow great idea friend

    • if i’m correct some state polices are starting to implement something like this. pretty much if an officer is abusing their power or something along those lines and another officer is there to even witness it they MUST intervene.

    • ThreeI_ lies they all corrupted, black, white, Hispanic, Asian etc the all blue system is broke.

  2. Give this sista her money! And offer her a job to lecture new officers in training!

    This lady saved a persons life and was fired for it. Imagine being fired for literally doing your job.

      Except that is not their job, that is supposed to be their job they are simply there to oppress the poor and the middle class and to protect the powerful. Preservation of life, protecting and serving even at risk to themselves, the betterment of their community, those are all very distant seconds and thirds if they even factor into the equation at all anymore.

  6. This makes my blood boil, here this police woman interviened to stop another police office from doing a chokehold on a suspect and she gets fired for it, makes no sense

  7. What number do I call to pressure this woman to get her money?!?! She saved a man’s life!

    boyyyyyyy she bout to get PAID… Forget a pension… this is a wrongful termination suite

    • Perhaps. But no amount of compensation can remove the physiological stress this caused her. I would not be surprised if high blood pressure and coronary problems accompanied these 14 years of being wronged for doing right.

      this happened TEN years ago. the statute of limitations is long passed.

    • I think she wants more than her pension. She wants to emphasize police brutality as a former cop.

    Give this woman her pension & any money lost since she’s been fired from the NYPD….EVERY PENNY OF IT!! ✌

  10. “I lost everything but saved Neil’s life.”..This made me cry.

      @Latre Love Absolutely, her dignity and self respect are higher BECAUSE of what she sacrafised to do the right thing.

      She never just lost her dignity, it’s all intact. However they owe her hella lot of back pay and her pension.

    • There is a change (dot) org petition for Cariol to get her pension. Google “Cariol Horne pension” it will be the second result.

      Thank you! (And thankfully, Cariol’s dignity is intact.)

      She doesn’t need her job back for the same reason Colin Kaepernick doesn’t really need his. She’s now a symbol for one of the most timely, righteous causes around.

    She deserves to be honored, as an Officer of the law, and a Hero.

    She needs to receive her pension and be rewarded for courage and stepping in and saving someone’s life.

    • Actually, as Pastor Judah Smith has said, “The system isn’t broken. It was BUILT this way.” He knows, he has seen way too much to believe otherwise…so have I.

    what a beautiful soul she has
    its horrible how they fired her for trying too avoid someones death she was doing her job properly

    • Indeed she does….a very gentle soul. Sadly, good officers often are fired if they speak up or intervene when cops resort to brute force or they just quit their jobs because they’ve seen far too much corruption whilst on the police force. 

      Nakia Jones is another officer who lost her job…for being outraged at the frequent brutal, in-cold-blood mvrders by cops. It is heartbreaking.

      Shut up! its all your fault. you and you people live you whole life and stand and do nothing… talk you your dad and uncles and brothers about this…

    She should get her full pension paid retroactively, along with a hefty settlement.

  16. RationalMinded | June 16, 2020 at 8:56 PM | Reply

    And this is why I say ‘good’ cops get fired..because it’s literally what happens. She isn’t the only one to get fired for acting in good faith or speaking up. Funny how she loses her pension but cops with multiple complaints, that go on to kill someone on camera, keep theirs.

    “I did stop the chokehold, and he did. Live.”
    SHERO!!!

  18. Looks like Buffalo hasn’t changed much. From this Officer’s firing to the “tactical” squad knocking down a 75 y/o man.

  19. She deserves her pension, back pay for unjustified firing and her reputation!
    Disgusting that it took this long to
    remedy the injustice she suffered!!!!
