As stated in the submission, someone vandalized and stole property belonging to this resident of Carmel, Indiana, as well as several of his neighbors. He maintains that even though he received no response after reporting it, those neighbors informed him that they had. Being that he was the only non-white victim and also the only one that hadn’t been contacted by police, he suspected that the reason was race-based. As a result, he placed a follow up call to the Carmel Police Department to ask for an explanation.

According to the submission, rather than being helpful, Sgt. Sean Brady, who answered the call, was rude and dismissive of him. In addition, he says that Sgt. Brady confirmed his suspicions that the lack of response was racial in nature after he inadvertently failed to hang up the phone at the end of the conversation. Sgt. Brady could be heard discussing the phone call with another, unidentified man, and referring to the man as a “Dumb Nigger.”

Incidentally, Sgt. Sean Brady is also one of the many, many, many “Bad Apples” who have received awards from their department. In 2014, he was the recipient of a merit award for “Distinguished Service.” (To be fair, technically he did distinguish himself with his “service” during this phone call and his unintentionally overheard recap of it.)

Let Them Know What You Think: Community Feedback – Police

In this day and age, there is no excuse for anyone, let alone a law enforcement officer to use racial slurs. I am a Carmel resident and tax payer who had the misfortune of having to refer to the CarmeI Police Department after my family and I were made victims of crime. I followed the process after our property was vandalized and stolen by calling the police and having a report filed. Weeks went by and we heard nothing and were never contacted by anyone with the department.

I would under any other circumstances have the patience to wait, understanding that maybe there were more serious crimes or pressing matters that the Carmel Police Department was tending to, but I found that wasn’t the case. Several neighbors fell victim to the same crime and all had reported their incidents to the department. The neighbors that I spoke with afterwards all stated that they had at least received a follow-up phone call from a detective to confirm that their incident was being investigated.

Again, trying to give the department the benefit of the doubt, I reached out to the criminal investigations unit myself. You should also know that all of my other neighbors are white and my family is the only black family on our street. Our white neighbors received notice from the Carmel Police Department, while ours was excluded.

Sgt Sean Brady Carmel PoliceWhen I called the Carmel police for follow-up, I spoke with Sgt. Sean Brady with the criminal investigations unit. Sgt. Brady was rude, even hostile and made it seem like my complaint and the property that had been stolen or vandalized was unimportant to his department and that he had no desire to provide the service which my tax dollars pay for.

I asked for an explanation as to why my “white” neighbors were receiving police assistance and why their complaints were being investigated, but my family, who were victims as well, were excluded. Sgt. Brady stated “I don’t have time for this” and ended the phone call before providing an explanation.

Sgt. Brady may have thought that he terminated the call, but the phone didn’t disconnect on his end and I could still hear what was happening in the background of the office and what was being said. I could very clearly hear Sgt. Brady saying to another person (it’s unknown if the male voice in the background was another officer) ” I don’t know what that dumb nigger expects for me to do for him.”

I’ve made calls and have sent messages to complain on this racist officer with his own department, but naturally they have gone unanswered. Here is a word of advice for anyone of color who deals with this department or anyone of their officers. This is a racist department that needs to be investigated for the hate crimes that they commit on tax payers, citizens, and the good people who happen to be of color who have the misfortune of having any sort of contact with them.

Sgt. Sean Brady referred to me as a “dumb nigger” and I can only imagine how many others have also been subjected to this man’s hateful and racist outlook. He made it very clear that he lacks the ability to see victims of crime as just that, but rather, he can only see the color of a person’s skin.

Sgt. Sean Brady, racist Carmel, Indiana police officer, needs to be investigated for his racist comments, unprofessionalism, and the prejudice and hate that he has shown.
