England police officer Michael Moore deliberately harassed a group of young African-American rap artists making a music video and not causing or creating any wrongdoing or had any intentions of committing a crime. Officer Moore informed the men that "they don't belong in that city". The officer further warned the young men to "back away" from his vehicle or he would send the K-9. The police chief was nowhere to be found. The police chief refused to comment on camera. Officer Michael Moore was ultimately terminated from his position as a police officer. It is not clear as to which this was or not an isolated incident. But it was a clear-cut case of "textbook racism" amongst the African-American community and the England Police Department. This was a racially motivated incident that proved unnecessary.
