Baltimore Cop Purposely Coughs Near Residents In New Footage

Baltimore cop coughs near residents

A video of a Baltimore cop purposely coughing near residence of a public housing complex without closing his mouth has surfaced online. The footage is currently under investigation by officials.

The lady filming the incident can be heard saying “Hey officer friendly with the cherry cheeks,” the officer is then seen walking past the woman while coughing without covering his mouth, effectively stoking further paranoia around the coronavirus and potentially weaponizing it in the process. Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said in a statement:

“After watching the full video, in its entirety, it is not only disturbing, but incomprehensible, especially considering the high-level of strong and clear guidance that we have provided from the beginning, regarding COVID-19, […] Members are always expected to be sensitive and professional to the community, but what we saw in the video is alarming because this pandemic is affecting lives not only nationally, worldwide, but right here in our own police department.”
