Post Cop Acquitted of DWI, Wasn't Drunk Just Uneducated!

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.

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.....

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....

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.
