The Boston police officer who was suspended last week for describing Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., as a “banana-eating jungle
monkey” in an email to a local newspaper is suing the Boston Police Department and the city’s mayor for infringing on his civil rights and causing
him — among other things — “emotional distress” and “post-traumatic stress"

I was curious to see if a suit of this sort would come to play after it was reported last week that a officer in Boston (not Crolley) made some racist
comments via a email letter to a Boston Newspaper. I don't agree with his comment regarding Professor Gates but I do agree with his right to say it
without being stepped on and now I hope to see how this plays out and hope to see more of these kinds of suits come forward when people are used as a
political pawn/distraction when in the origanal arrest with the Professor was shown to NOT be racially motivated. I know not everybody will agree with
this officer and again I don't agree with his comments but I do agree that under our Constitution he has the right to say it and not be singled out,
thrown under the bus and punished for his email/letter.
I believe when it was proven the Professor Gates was the one slinging the Racecard, TPTB/Dems had to come up with another fall guy and they found him!
Distractions, distractions, distractions. Lets keep the country divided is their moto!
