DENVER -- A Twitter account linked to Jordan Hancock, the son of Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, includes years of anti-police sentiments that led up to a traffic stop tirade against a police officer during a traffic stop.

Jordan Hancock, 22, is shown in a video leaked to Contact7 Investigates from March berating an Aurora police officer after being pulled over for speeding.

“My dad’s the mayor, you f—king f—got!” Hancock is heard telling the officer in the video. “Guess what, I’m about to get you fired!”  

The traffic stop happened in March after an officer clocked him going at least 25 miles over the 40 mile per hour speed limit.

Only a portion of the video was leaked to Denver7, and Aurora police have not released the full video, so it is unclear what stoked Hancock’s anger after he was pulled over. Aurora Police Chief Nick Metz posted a lengthy explanation as to why the video wasn't being currently released on Tuesday evening.

But the Twitter timeline of an account linked to Hancock suggests his anger toward that police department goes back years. 

“Quote me on this… F—K THE AURORA POLICE! Ol racist steretyping (sic) mothaf—kas!. You aint shit without that badget (sic) b—ch!” a tweet from 2013 says. 

An earlier 2013 tweet reads:

“The KKK traded in their white hoods for gold badges. F--K THE POLICE.”

Other tweets show a general distrust of law enforcement. In 2016, a tweet from the account references going to war with the police.

A 2014 tweet reads:

“U kant sit there and tell me s--t bout the police if u aint been in my situations #F---kThePolice
period”

Jordan Hancock is not identified by name on the Twitter account @Real2Bigg_Stakx , but the account’s bio links to a Facebook page that appears to be Hancock's. The account also makes several references to Hancock’s birthday, which matches the birth date on his Aurora traffic ticket. The account’s handle also corresponds with a rap video posted on YouTube that shows Hancock rapping for 2Bigg Entertainment under the name Stakx.

When asked for a response to the tweets, Hancock’s spokesperson Amber Miller wrote, 
“I cannot confirm these were written by Jordan Hancock. Jordan was one of numerous members of this rap group and this is the group’s dormant twitter account of lyrics and songs.”

Jordan Hancock declined to answer any questions from Denver7 after his court appearance on the traffic ticket on Monday.

Mayor Michael Hancock declined Denver7’s interview requests as well, but responded Tuesday with a tweet of his own: 

“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.”
