I do want to clarify something and I say this with all due respect (although if it offends I don't give a damn).
While you may be in / have been in law enforcement, I want to make it clear you are entitled to your opinions about other ethnicities. The use of the
term monkey and black thug buddies in relation to a crime is, in my opinion, ignorant and asinine and is not needed. Law Enforcement has enough
issues as it is without those terms being brought into the discussion by one individual who is former / current law enforcement.
I don't agree with the use of those terms and I think it reflects poorly on an individual who is suppose to represent all of society, and not just the
light skinned members. Law Enforcement is not the judge and there is a reason we are not a part of the judicial branch.
A black person is not a criminal.
A white person is not a criminal.
A Hispanic person is not a criminal.
An Asian person is not a criminal.
A person who breaks the law is a criminal, regardless of the color of their skin / background / upbringing. Individuals like yourself with strong
opinions on race should not be wearing the uniform.
It is not who we are nor what we represent and is nothing but a personal issue for you, minus the uniform. Your opinions do not represent other
members of law enforcement and I ask the members to consider this when reading your posts.
