A police chief and an officer in Hamilton, Georgia, are out from their positions after video surfaced of comments both are seen making at a Black Lives Matter protest, ABC News affiliate WTVM reported.

Hamilton Police Department Chief Gene Allmond is reported to have resigned and Patrolman John Brooks was terminated according to the assistant to the Hamilton mayor, Julie Brown, WTVM reported.

Both officers were wearing bodycams at a BLM protest in Hamilton in June 2020. The video has since been made public.

In the video, a man speaking off-camera and a man on-camera make several comments with racial slurs and explicit language.
