'We only shoot black people'

A police lieutenant in Georgia has been moved to administrative duty after being heard on video during a traffic stop saying 'we only shoot black people.'

Dash-cam video from a DUI traffic stop in July 2016 shows a white female passenger telling Cobb County police Lt. Greg Abbott she was scared to move her hands in order to get her cellphone because she didn't want to get shot, WSB reported.

Abbott interrupts her and says, 'But you're not black. Remember, we only shoot black people.
'All the videos you've seen, have you seen the black people get killed?'

Cobb County police chief Mike Register said Abbott will remain on administrative duty pending an investigation, and that 'no matter what context it was said, it shouldn't have been said.'
