Greensboro Police Lt. Stacy Morton has been put on “administrative leave with pay pending an internal investigation” according to Police Public Information Officer Ronald Glenn.
Glenn stated, “The investigation is related to a personnel matter so there is no additional details I can give at this time.”
But, since the NC A&T State University homecoming, there have rumors about Morton being a member of Israel United In Christ, which is part of the Black Hebrew Israelite movement that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has identified as a black nationalist hate group.
Morton can be seen in a video available on social media sitting behind several Israel United in Christ members who are using microphones to preach to people passing by.
One of the messages that keeps being repeated in the video is that African-Americans are God’s true chosen people, not the Jewish people. The speaker says that Jews are worshipers of the devil. He calls Jewish synagogues “synagogues of Satin.” And he says that African Americans are the true tribe of Judah.
Different sects of the Hebrew Israelite movement have different views, but an article by the SPLC states, “Although most Hebrews Israelites are neither explicitly racist nor anti-Semitic and do not advocate violence, there is a rising extremist sector within the Hebrew Israelite movement whose adherents believe that Jews are devilish impostors and who openly condemn whites as evil personified, deserving only death or slavery.”
The Black Hebrew Israelite movement gained some national attention for their involvement in the incident in Washington involving the Covington Catholic High School students. A student said the incident started when a group of Black Hebrew Israelites started taunting the boys calling them “racists,” “bigots,” “white crackers” and other names.
According to the SPLC, groups Black Hebrew Israelites hate include Asians, promiscuous black women, abortionists, continental Africans and gay people.
As noted, the Greensboro Police Department will neither confirm or deny that the investigation of Morton has anything to do with his appearance with the Israel United in Christ group during A&T homecoming weekend.
I can’t wait for all the people that have been screaming at city council meetings about the police to start screaming about this…oh, wait, I won’t hold my breath…this won’t fit their narrative well…
While it may look bad for a GPD Officer to be involved with a hate group, it’s still not even close to the criminal child molester Deputy Chief James Hinson hired to work in his group home.
The city council doesn’t care but this man needs to be fired and no pay and retirement for his rascals involvement and you say Sharon Hightower is not rascal she new this all along because she is racist. The city of Greensboro needs a chief of police with a back bone not a chicken bone and can stand up to the bulls..t that goes on at the city council and push back when need and do what’s right for the people.
I can’t wait to see the investigation of the officers that are affiliated with the KKK
This article is clearly a copy/paste smear campaign. With all the officers who have been identified and linked to the domestic terrorist KKK group not one investigation or suspension to date. This only gives credence to the Israelite truth movement.
and who might those officers be?
So how are GPD officers supposed to feel safe or trust anyone if this person is not fired. This officer shows bias by being in this group. but of course he is part of the north state police association, which is a black only organization.
