A Michigan Cop Resigned After He Was Recorded Using Racial Slurs And Buying Drugs. Then He Got Rehired

by Black America Web

There’s a reason why there are so many people, especially Black people, who believe the entire system of policing in America needs to be thrown away. It’s not just about racist cops. And it’s certainly not about reducing the problem to “a few bad apples.” It’s about an entire rotten orchard full of police departments protecting cops from accountability, giving them a near-infinite benefit of the doubt, and, of course, rehiring them after they lost their jobs over racism, gross misconduct or both.

Meet Greg Marohn.

In March 2022, Marohn was hired as an officer of the law by the Holly Police Department in Michigan, according to ABC 7 Detroit. Less than a year-and-a-half before being hired by that department, he had “resigned in lieu of termination” from another one, Michigan’s Oakland County Sheriff’s Department. Why was Marohn forced to resign before getting fired? Well, it’s hard to say. Maybe it was because of his “poor driving history,” as he told Holly Police Chief Jerry Narsh at the time he was hired. Or maybe it’s because he admitted to purchasing Schedule II drugs without a prescription while he was on duty. Or maybe it was because he accidentally recorded himself slinging racial slurs at Black citizens just for existing in his proximity. Maybe it was for all of those reasons. The real question is—how TF did he get rehired as a cop after all of that?

ABC reported that on Dec. 4, 2020, the dash-cam on Marohn’s police cruiser turned on and started recording him. The camera turn on automatically once an officer’s vehicle is moving at more than 90 MPH. So, where was Marohn off to in such a hurry?

From ABC:

With his dash camera recording, Marohn could be heard sending voice-to-text message from his phone.

“I’m going to need a few minutes or I don’t know what,” Marohn said, “because I need to go to the bank so it’s kind of messed right now. I have enough to loan you the hundred.”
