I am not trying to hate on the cops because I have quite a few friends on the force, but this is some Bull Shit!

Yesterday in Shreveport Louisiana a black judge acquitted a black police officer (whose been on the force for 27 years) of DWI. This cop hit a fire truck and the 10 minute police video shows that the officer who pulled him over had the drunk cop attempt to say his ABC's 10 times. He could not do it. The judge who acquitted the cop said that the 10 min video showed no proof that he was intoxicated. He said the video showed that perhaps the cop might have had a medical condition or perhaps he was just not a very educated man.....WTF....A cop of 27 years being so uneducated that he can't even say his ABC's.
Then again, uneducation might be the reason so many cops cannot follow the same laws they try to enforce.....HMMMMM.................

Well Louisiana is one of the worst places to get an education. But yeah that is some bullshit.

Sounds like the judge was less educated than the cop. :rolleyes:

Why does the writer feel the need to inform us of the fact that both the judge, and officer were black?

For one, that is how it was reported on the news. So, having went to college for Broadcast/Journalism I try to keep with the facts. Then express my personal opinion afterward. It is only fair and balanced that way.
Secondly, if you have any idea about Louisiana and the Shreveport area it is 70% black and 30% white or other races. So, the race card is a huge factor that unfortunately goes hand in hand with anything (political,social, etc.) in this area. It always seems to be used in anything political......
Thirdly, I hope noone would ever assume that a person is a racist just because a person mentioned the color of someone. I for one, have 3 nationalities represented in my own household. My son from my first marriage happens to be half Labanese for which most folks like to call them....ragheads....And my husband now is actually half Korean...A gook, I guess you would call him.
So, please let's not point out the minor and look at the the story as a whole....
However, your opinion is respected and it was a fair question to ask.....

Hey, Maidenarcher--what did you think of the cash grab our fine state legislature made a few days ago? (I'm a displaced Louisiana resident). Of course I should be more specific--voting themselves health care at taxpayer expense for life.

Naturally the usual suspects voted for it--Fields, Jones, Cheek, Heitmeier. What a bunch of self-serving assclowns.


AHHHH.....Louisiana politics!!!!!
No matter what side you are on, anything political seems to be corrupt to the core in this state. I guess for the folks who don't live here or aren't familiar with Louisiana just cannot understand...
Thanks for the info, I actually hadn't heard about that yet. So, it is definitely something I will go read about......

First I was referring to the author of the article not you. Secondly the I was trying to make the point about the race card issue, and unfortunately its not just in LA. And lastly I would not refer to you or your husband and children in a derogatory manner as you erroneously presumed.

Just let me clarify what I meant when I was referring to my husband and child. When I said you, I did not mean you (yourself). I mean you as a whole, as in people in general. I would never assume or presume anything. That only makes a person look like an ass. So, if it came out that way then I can only apologize.
As for referring to the author of the article, that is not how it came across in your post. You asked why did the writer (which was me) have to mention that both people were black.
So, I guess it was mere miscommunication on both our parts....

Good news...Blanco vetoed it. WAFB has the story.

Of course, when it comes to worthless self-serving politicians, plenty of folks on this board can understand...check the Post-Gazette archives for some of the Pennsylvania Legislature's shenanigans :)



Bestbank Tiger,

That is good to know....Thanks for the update....

I would like to know what a derogatory term would be for me as I am a mutt....(Scottish, Irish & German). As I think it's silly to be offended over a name or label, I would wear my "derogatory" label proudly. :bouncy:

Hell Yeah! My dog is definitely not the only mutt in my house.....I'm French, Irish, and Cherokee......But I'm ALL AMERICAN....No other label needed......

There seem to be a lot of bone-headed judges lately. Some black, some white and there may have been a purple one in there, too.

You should see the judges in New Orleans.

One of them ROR'ed a FUGITIVE about a year ago.

And there are a few who routinely let hardened criminals out of jail for chump change. Which is why New Orleans has such a high murder rate.


Well,
You see what they have had to do in New Orleans now. They have sent the Guard (i believe) down as law reinforcement. There were 5 teenagers killed about a week or so ago. New Orleans is a pretty bad place.....And I am not trying to be mean with my next statement, it is just the truth. There has been an large increase in crime in Northern Louisiana, Houston, and any other areas that many hurricane victims were relocated too. Many communities that were involved in helping their neighbors were left feeling a little slighted or resentful due to the attitude of ungratefulness, destruction of hotels, and the increase in crime.
For the others who lost everything they had and have been working hard to get their lives back together, please know that you are still in our thoughts and prayers.

Houston is really regretting having taken in the New Orleans people.

Been hearing a lot of that. Of course, some of it is just scapegoating. Houston was a cesspool of violent crime before Katrina--in fact, if you look up the numbers, they had a higher violent crime rate than New Orleans in '02 and '04, (I don't know the numers for '03). If I remember right, Houston was worse for both overall crime and every category except murder.

This is a reply to you and CAH,

There is actually truth in what both of you say...Yes, many people from Houston do regret helping the hurricane victims for many reasons....And, yes Houston's crime rate is tragic all on it's own...However, there are a lot of surrounding towns near Houston that had a extreme jump in crime when the hurricane victims relocated there. I have friends and family that live all over Houston. For example, in Conroe most of the crime that is being committed the news shows that it is folks from New Orleans committing the crime.
People have to remember that most of the people that were relocated to Northern Lousiana and all over Houston were from the ninth ward.....And I think the tragedy is when many of these folks are so ungrateful for what everyone has done for them.....And believe me so many of them were ungrateful because on the news everyday showed them complaining about us not helping them....But hell, they were shooting at the military and rescue workers who were trying to save them.....Anyway, the tragedy is that there are good people who still need our help that did appreciate what we have done for them, but the bad ones (so to speak) made everyone feel ill about the whole thing and don't want to help out anymore.....

That happens when people think they are owed something and are used to handouts.
