Let's Hope Nobody Asks President Obama About The Boston Cop That Was Just Put On Suspension For Calling Dr. Gates A "Jungle Monkey" In Mass E-Mailing
Meet soon-to-be-ex Boston Officer Justin Barrett. He is going to get fired with major quickness. This is another cop with "extensive" anti-racial profiling training. I would love to sit through this course because apparently cops taking this course are missing something.
This is scary and stupid all at the same time. It's stupid to send e-mails with racial slurs if you are a police officer and it's damn scary that this dude has a badge and a gun and thinks it's okay to mace public citizens if you raise your voice with them.
Sounds like abuse of power to me, but I have dealt with so many apologists over the last few days, I imagine some folks will be okay with our police having these kind of ideas, particularly in minority neighborhoods.
And somewhere in my hometown of Los Angeles is a very, very, dangerous police officer. A Mark "Mr. Nigger" Fuhrman/Rodney King Beating type officer waiting to explode. And speaking of Mark "I Retired Before I Got Fired" Fuhrman, he went AWOL from whatever KKK compound he is residing in Idaho to share his great knowledge on the subject of the "myth of racial profiling" to Faux News.
Houston, we still have a problem here.
