of course they did, i bet the search had nothing to do with the guy being suspicious...no way, of course not. Its always a black thing, isnt it. Well at least the guy gets another year of living unemployed, before he is back on the welfare check.

What makes you think he looked suspicious (in his car)? Just because he is black? I guess we should all assume everytime we see a white person, they're a pill head or meth addict (more than likely they are)!!!!

The schools in Fairmont usually keep the "ethnic" boys from leaving campus. They are kept in the northern or western side of campus. Did this one escape?

Courageous post here. This is a person who understands that NO ONE is safe (read: immune) from profiling. Today it might be race; tomorrow it may be your religion. Thank you, Ricky, for taking a stand for your morals.

Can you not read? He works in Morgantown now. Who cares if he got someone pregnant? That would be his business, not yours!

The truth is wrote:
He voluntarily left Fairmont. He did get a better paying job with westover PD, he was sick of Kelly MORONs bullshit, and jealousy The whole "investigation" against him was lies by Vanessa Rodrigues and he was cleared of everything except the std she gave him. I know him personally and he is happy, married and has a new baby.
If any guy off the street would have done what he did, he would have went to jail. But cops don't arrest theavein' cops, they let them slither away so they don't have to face up to how crooked they all are. Another case of who you are!

The upside is, his racist ass is gone out o the Mont. Look out Motown if your driving while black.
