A police officer from Gonzales, Louisiana is accused of sending unprovoked racist messages to another man on Grindr.
Charles Davis is a recent college graduate. He says he received the messages from the officer, whose name has not been released but who goes by the screen name “Top,” last Friday at around 3 AM.
The conversation went as follows:
Davis initially posted a screenshot of the conversation to Facebook but has since taken it down.
The officer is reported to be “well-liked” in the department and the community. Community members are said to be “shocked” by the allegations.
Chief Sherman Jackson told local TV news station WBRZ that the department is looking into the allegations and, if they are true, “we will not sweep anything under the rug”; however, no disciplinary actions have been taken yet. In fact, Jackson says, he hasn’t even spoken to the officer.
It’s always the people you least expect, isn’t it?

How did he determine it was a local cop considering he doesn’t have a profile picture in the screenshot?
I wondered the same thing.
Grindr police? Did the “victim” report it as a “hate crime”?
Did “Top” come forward and confess his identity out of guilt?
The presumed facts are about as dependable as a pair of shoes made of ice.
All cops are racist, white-privileged bullies who secretly desire men.
They’re also responsible for the assault on our planet.
Calm down for God’s sake. What if the story is true? What then? Also, why use “desires men” as if its a degrading thing? At any rate, nobody mentioned Trump.
Sorry, bud, I thought my sarcasm was evident.
I sense sarcasm or a psychopath or both.
Getting into any field where you will have a certain amount of power and have people’s lives in your hands does mean there’s often a higher degree of superiority/inferiority complexes and megalomaniac instincts. That’s not damning all or even most police officers.
The holes and lack of details in this story are infinite.
I feel like you used to troll better, Fake Biracial Bisexual…I mean Mo. Whadda matter, boo, you tired? Need a vacation?
“I’m not being treated with respect on a platform where you select random strangers as sex partners from a menu of human torsos! It’s so unfair!”
Yes, as a homo and ethnic male I’m completely unmoved by the bytching about racism and shallowness and lack of respect on Grindr. No one deserves to be harassed. But it’s a place for random and often anonymous hook-ups, carnal flirting, showboating and for a few exalting self-hate. What more do you expect?
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
It’s a rare day when I agree with Danny595!
And the people of Queerty continue to be the bigoted queens they always are proven by the comments above.
Asking questions and wanting more facts is now bigoted?
I am sick of people complaining about the social etiquette of Grindr. There are real things to discuss on the front of race. How people behave on a hook-up app shouldn’t at all be one of the first things on people’s minds.
Hateful, racist people on an internet App? I’m shocked I tell you.
Now that Grindr is 100% a Chinese-owned business, it can out all the racists on it or blackmail them if it wants, right? Or kick off the people who say “No Asians”, which would seem like full circle justice when you think about it.
Or blackmail anyone gay on there.
