What in the hell is going on in our country when all of a sudden it becomes acceptable, fashionable, even legitimate to engage in bigotry, racism and victimization? We can’t fire everyone for their speech and sometimes their actions; however, we seem to be on a slippery slope of lessening civil behavior and civil discourse regarding race and race relations.
eprof I sincerely believe that a segment of the population has become totally unhinged with the election of Obama.
Yes, I would fire him. The motto proudly displayed on many police vehicles is “to protect and to serve.” Police officers undergo many hours of training to serve the public. The public put their trust in the police to do just that – protect and serve. Unfortunately because of the power the police have that is not always the case. Because this officer is an employee of a department that is already involved in a heavily publicized “police vs race” situation, he will probably pay the price. He has lost the trust of the people he took an oath to serve and protect. Racism is coming out from the shadows. One giant step backward for mankind.
I’d fire him. Not for the grevious statement. That’s up to the department’s code of conduct to determine. I’d fire him because any cop that stupid to make such a public statement in such a high profile incident is way too dumb to be a cop.
I suspect if he’s fired he’s going to sue for violation of his own civil rights. But yes I agree with you d, very very stupid!
U.S. Adviser’s Blunt Memo on Iraq: Time ‘to Go Home’
Justin Barret should be Micheal Vick’s dog for a day.

How many people are going to screw up their lives via email, and other recorded internet forums ie. twitter, facebook, myspace, live journal????…..seriously…it’s all on record.
lol Bri….lol very funny…
“How many people are going to screw up their lives via email, and other recorded internet forums”
UB they don’t think there is anything wrong with what they are saying, hence their eagerness to share their thoughts!
I am facing a party this Saturday that my son put together…omg….there may be as many as 125 teens in and out of here that day…yikes
Grad/Going Away Open house….needless to say I am looking forward to Sunday
Oh yeah, I forgot about that tiny fact…it so “wrong” to me I tend to forget people think that way and are proud of it.
“I am facing a party this Saturday that my son put together…omg….there may be as many as 125 teens in and out of here that day…yikes”
What time do you want me there?
I live in my own bubble, and try to eliminate the bigots….
lol Brian….most of them will be of age too!
Oh dang!….I have to run out, just looked at the clock ….have a great day everyone……….
Medals Of Freedom: Obama Honors Ted Kennedy, Harvey Milk And 14 Others
It’s an interesting group of people he’s picked.
Ok gang, only an hour left until happy hour on the White House lawn. What will the President be serving with the cold ones?
3. More beer
Chita Rivera – A shout-out to the Sotomayor crowd?
Sidney Poitier – Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?
My fave though was Jack Kemp. We could use a few more Republicans with his character and intelligence these days.
peanuts and corn chips are my choice
With all due respect, the President should have invited Tom T. Hall to the “beer summit.”
What did President Obama serve?
inquiry minds want to know….
I think it might be kind of awkward meeting the President under these circumstances, I mean seriously…..
wow dnd, look at you post in video in-line…..lol…pretty smooth
Boy UB, you’ve been away a long time, wordpress has had that feature for a long time now. All you have to do is post a youtube link.
New avatar, new doo? Looks nice. Good luck with all the teens Saturday. Good thing Brian will be there to help you out 😉
And you know I love to be helpful!
Looks like they are tossing peanuts back dnd!
Rumor has it that Rahm Emanual came out with his guitar and sang:
As long as he didn’t put on his tights and dance!
“Looks like they are tossing peanuts back dnd!”
Yeah, just like they do at McSorleys!
What’s Biden drinking? He doesn’t drink…
Is he the designated driver?
God I actually shuddered when I read “McSorleys”
Maybe Joe is drinking near beer.
Were you all drinking a beer along with the president and his guests?
A no here, since we’re 3 hours behind and still have driving in my future.
But did hoist an iced tea and wonder how it was going.
NYTimes pic of the beerfest is interesting. Obama looking very comfortable, Officer Crowley in a suite and tie.
Someone needs to update the lyrics though.
Mr. Crowley da da da
What the hell were you thinking?
way cool on the video link.
Soda crackers, raw onions, limburger cheese and McSorley’s mustard. That’s what would have brought these two Boston prima donnas together.
ps. For those of you who have never been to McSorleys (and I’d put that on your bucket list), they serve soda crackers, raw onions, limburger cheese and a mustard made with mustard powder and their ale.
added to the list that McSorleys place….
I just got a email from a friend….I mean I really can’t believe she wrote this about someone else…this is the email in it’s entirety:
“sue’s husband died last night – now she does not need the divorce lawyer . . .”
I am stunned…lol..sorry.. I had to share because I am so stunned.
dnd neglects to mention that McSorleys hasn’t been cleaned or had their floor mopped since the Maine sank!
You got some nice friends there UB! Good thing you came “home” to us!
Brian you have a McSorley’s story don’t you?
Time to go back….maybe they have improved
I know that was really cold that email….geez….I can’t imagine what she’ll say when I die…..
I went once, got queasy and left. You can smell the place about a block away, it’s a toxic waste dump!
