A Chicago police officer gets to keep his job after an investigation into controversial comments made in a video.

The investigation began after the officer was seen in the YouTube video making a racially-charged comment during a traffic stop.

A witness told the officer he was recording him because he doesn't trust police after incidents like the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.

WITNESS: "We don't trust y'all. You heard about Mike Brown."
OFFICER: "Mike Brown deserved it. He got what he had coming."

Supt. Garry McCarthy says the officer will lose about a week's vacation and complete additional training.
