Judge Uses Vulgar Language As She Is Charged


www.courant.com

The video shows an uncooperative Cofield continually interrupting state police Sgt. Dwight Washington, who was asking a series of questions while processing her on the DUI charge at the Glastonbury police headquarters.

At 2:17 a.m. on Oct. 10, nearly two hours into the booking at headquarters, Cofield is seated at a desk and calls her husband on her cellphone. Washington, who like Cofield is black, is standing about 3 feet away.

Her end of the conversation, in part, is: "I don't need a ride ...

My question is if this were a white judge would she work again? Anywhere in any capacity?

I would suggest people read some of the comments too. It seems that this kind of behavior is so ingrained in our society and this is exactly why the term used in rap or among black people has to stop. It doesn't matter if all talk show hosts try and explain away why it is okay for blacks to use these terms but not whites. To end racism everybody has to see the term as a cuss word.

She hits a parked patrol car and is driving with a BAL of twice the national limit. Anyone else in that situation would be pounded into the pavement and then locked away in a dark cell for days. Not to mention, the cell phone call would probably have never happened.

This woman is a disgrace to the legal system. Any good that she may have ever done or intended to do in her position is and will be marred by her actions that night. If she is allowed to remain a sitting judge, I would love to hit the sauce and head through her district. Just make sure to take a recording of the video as evidence and plead out the same way she did.

Its already bad enough that cops let other law enforcement get away with DUI, assault, manslaughter, destruction of property and just about anything else. Extending this on up to an obviously racist judge with no respect for those charged in putting people like her in jail is a blatant perversion of law.

Lady justice has finally removed her blindfold, dropped her scales and instead has a Glock 9MM with laser sights pointed squarely at the population of America.

"Justice isnt blind. Its armed to the teeth and gunning for you."

If this were a white judge what do you think the outcome would have been? Would Al Sharpton be saying something about this and how this person should be driven to hell with a pitchfork ? Where is the real outrage for this behavior?

perhaps you should start your own form of protest against the judge.
the race of the person isn't what determines my level of reaction at preferential treatment.
personally, not being psychic, i haven't the foggiest idea how sharpton would react.
if you don't know already, let me enlighten you....he doesn't represent the black community.
so whatever views he holds is not universal among us black folks.
you asked for opinions, i gave you one.
a judge here in my hometown did the exact same thing. she was confronted by a local news station and that's about it.
what more would like me to do?
you seem more upset at something that happens all over the world in different jurisdictions.
i said i didn't agree with how the situation was handled.
i guess my brand of outrage is too low-key for you.

Actually there was no disagreement with you, in fact I was saying that in order to reach a society of non-racialism equal outrage should be shown when gross racial slurs are used.

And I never expected you to be the voice of the black people - if you got that impression I apologise. In fact in another thread I pointed out to hunkahunka that being married to a black woman didn't automatically make him an interpreter for black people - as they have their own voice.

i apologize if i came off sounding confrontational.
i don't want give you that impression.

i misread your post.
i however, would like to see the woman punished.
she doesn't deserve to be treated any differently than anyone else.
i just think she's enjoying the benefits of class rather than race.
i also may be wrong in that assumption.
what she says to the officer is stupidity at its finest.
i tend to catalog all racists into the stupid column.

You have that totally right - more and more the social divide is becoming clear and people in elected office appears to feel above the masses who elected them. As they say though - It doesn't matter how high the throne we all still sit on our *sses."

absolutely.
i have a feeling the next "revolution/civil war" will be between the haves and have nots.
people are getting tired of the special treatment shown to others.
i'm tired of corporate thieves getting probation or short prison terms while someone who steals food gets 10 years.

You mean, someone like this white judge?

STATE COURT JUDGE CARLTON VINES SENTENCED

This guy has two DUI convictions in as many years, and yet he is still a judge.

I think it's more the "judge" part than the "black" part that makes this seem so unfair!

In a constitutional republic there is one law for all.

If it's illegal/wrong for the peons to do something then it's just as illegal and wrong for the non-peons. Doesn't matter the race.

Her comments were racist but that just shows her ignorance and is not a reflection on the entire black community. Her blatant disregard for the law she's sworn to uphold is the real offense here.

Not like that judge at all! That judges problem was drinking and driving. This particular ones crimes was what happened AFTER she had been caught on a DUI!

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
oh my this is too funny.

Asked what her illness was, Cofield said: "Negro-itis."

"Do you need to take any medication now?" Washington asked.

"Yeah, I need to take anti-Negro, ummm ..."

roflmao...and these are the people who prosecute us.
Ohthe system is wonderful isnt it?

Reason she can say it is just that reason, cause she is black.
Now if she was to go on to say "white trash bla bla" this would be an entirely different story.

If someone asked me if I needed medication, and I said " yea I need to take anti white trash meds" nobody would care.

point of the matter is, you cant stop people from using terms like that.
(as long as it is people of your own race) unfortunately.

If she didn't keep using racial statements I would tend to agree, When she complains about how she is treated, she refers to her color not her stature. I admit I turned it off about 2/3 through, so maybe later she mentions her position.

Regardless, she deserves the same punishment as anyone else would get.

I agree the judge was out of line and being an upperty snobbish biatch.

But I don't agree that blacks should stop using that term. The term originally, in Africa, was a friendly term like buddy. It was white slave traders that turned the word into a derogatory term. Blacks have just re-claimed the word for themselves, to take away the racial stigma of it, and return it to its original context.

It's only you getting offended by it because of your white perspective of the term and what it means to you.

What that judge said was nothing to do with race at all, it was all about her thinking she is above others because of her position in life. I'm white, if I call you a hick, a cracker, or an opie, would I be racist, or just rude?

i was actually referring to the fact that she was given a ride home and not charged with any offense.
but, as i've stated previous, she does deserve punishment.
i believe we are agreeing on the same thing?
sounds like it.

That's true but I think she was using the 'N' word not as a racial slur, but as a term to mean someone of lower class. Remember she was talking to a black guy, so it's more a social put down than a racist one imo.
