District attorney reviewing BRPD officer's cases over his alleged racist rants
BATON ROUGE - District Attorney Hillar Moore is reviewing past and pending cases handled by Baton Rouge Police Officer Chris Kuhn, who is accused of going on racist rants online.
Kuhn's posts were turned over by the Baton Rouge Police Union to the Baton Rouge Police Department. Some of the messages were published by the WBRZ Investigative Unit Thursday.
The messages show Kuhn targeted Blacks, Asians, and those of the Jewish faith. His phone number was linked to the account that he allegedly posted from on Tigerdroppings.
Additional messages uncovered Friday show he commented on current events and had plenty to say about other things he was doing on the clock.

"How about I got a BJ from a chick and didn't know my boss was in his office. His office faced mine but luckily his door was shut and we finished up right before he walked out. Did I mention our building is open to the public?"
Moore said as a result of learning about this, they found one pending case that is affected.
"Knowing him as an officer on the street and seeing him at crime scenes, I never heard or suspected any such language or thought or intent ever on his part," Moore said. "Only knew him as a good officer. It shocked me and surprised me. Then went into another mode of let's look at cases to see what cases have been compromised potentially."
Kuhn is on paid administrative leave. His attorney did not return calls for a comment Friday.
