Jordan Hancock, the son of Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock, was pulled over for speeding earlier this week. He was clocked going 65 mph in a 40 mph zone. He obviously thought dropping his dad's name would get him out of trouble, but it didn't. It's hard to tell exactly what led to this profanity laced tirade, but Hancock began spewing expletives and slurs, telling the officer that he'd soon be out of a job because, "My dad's the mayor." Watch the bodycam video below:
What's making some people even more upset is the way the Mayor responded. What do you think? Do you think this apology was sincere? Do you think the Mayor should have handled the situation in a different way?
We've addressed our son's behavior at a traffic stop w/him. He's apologized to the officer. While we don't support nor condone his inexcusable actions & words, we love our son dearly & will work w/him to turn a personal mistake into a valuable lesson for himself & the community.— Michael B.
