Report Unveils Goon Squad WhatsApp Messages That Included Sharing Racist Jokes, Shared Photos Of Dead Bodies & Assault Discussions   


A group of Mississippi sheriff's deputies, known as the Goon Squad, shared disturbing and violent messages in an encrypted WhatsApp group chat. This chat, which included their supervisor, documented years of brutal behavior and racist comments. The group gained national attention after torturing two Black men in their home, resulting in federal prison sentences for six officers. Despite some deputies claiming their comments were jokes, many engaged in and encouraged violence against suspects, including sharing pictures of dead bodies and discussing assaults.


The chat included plans to humiliate and harm suspects, with deputies making jokes about rape, using Tasers on private parts, and taking nude photos of arrested women. In one instance, they discussed a point system for arrests and shooting people. The group also created a commemorative coin featuring their name, initially suggesting it include a noose and Confederate flag.


Despite the violent nature of the conversations, many deputies in the chat have not faced charges and some still work in law enforcement. The sheriff's department claims to have been unaware of the group's actions until a Justice Department investigation. Following the revelations, the department banned unmonitored electronic communication among deputies.


The group's messages reflected a culture of violence and dehumanization, with deputies often joking about the brutality they inflicted. Even when faced with the exposure of their actions, some deputies dismissed their comments as jokes, while others acknowledged the disturbing nature of their behavior. The investigation into the Goon Squad continues to reveal the extent of their misconduct and the systemic issues within the department.


Here are some of the messages:
