A Michigan cop has been suspended after a house-hunting black couple noticed the officer had Confederate flags and a framed application to join the Klu Klux Klan hanging in his home, as they viewed the property.

Muskegon police officer Charles Anderson, 48, who is white, was placed on administrative leave, pending a city investigation, his wife Rachel confirmed to the Daily Mail. 

Anderson, a 20-year veteran of the force who was cleared of fatally shooting a black man in 2009, and was ordered by his superiors not to comment during the probe.

'You don't know how much we wish we could say something,' his wife told the Daily Mail.

The investigation began after house hunters Reyna and Rob Mathis, who are black, stumbled on the hate-inspired memorabilia in Anderson's home, which is for sale for $315,000.

Rob Mathis posted on his Facebook page that the couple met their real estate agent for a tour of Anderson's home in Holton on August 7. 

'I feel sick to my stomach,' wrote Rob Mathis (above with his wife Reyna) in a Facebook post about his visit to Muskegon Police Officer Charles Anderson's home in Holton, where they say they saw confederate flags and a framed application to the Klu Klux Klan
