WOW a slap on the hand, probation for an ex-le.

IF it was anyone else in the slammer you go.

I'm sure his PO will give a glowing report on his being a good boy.

I've seen people get a stiffer penalty for beating an animal. These judges are showing favoritism when it comes to holding LE accountable for their misdeeds.

Slight racist tone there.

Leave out race and other things.

Nope, same world. My point is if news papers, TV etc. stopped bringing up a person race, color, religion etc. slowly, ever so slowly the youngest generation will not be as subjected to it as we are.

And that providing the parents don't say things like, you can't play with that Black kid, or Asian kid or Mexican kid etc.

Prejudice starts at home by the parents. Followed closely by friends and news.

I to would love to live in a world where there is no racist, discrimination against others and we all live in peace and get along.

Perhaps when my grandkis have kids that might come about but we here will be long gone by that time.

Yeah, that'll be the day. Can't be no good without evil. No light without darkness, no peace without war. Just telling it like it is.

All in how you look at things to you everything is dark, must be another war, must be hate and killings.

The only thing a war really does is reduce the population, be it in one country or the entire world.

At night, say 11 PM step out and yes it is dark if you don't live in a city, look up, is it dark or do you see stars shinning?

I'm a pessimist by nature but I also have optimist in me, always looking for things to become better.

Ask anyone here or read my postings, most start off negatively but that is here, if you know me in person you will find I am not that way.

Any board is a place for people to vent, dream, sound off and agree or disagree with others.

You see no positive in the future, I see it in the long run as I said in my other post, long after all of us are gone.

So let me change that a little, that is if there is no WW3 which would be nuclear and end most of life as we know it.

I'm sure he goy his settlement, but Arlon Stoker got his half first I'm sure. What bothers me is the fact that Frazier got probation and sure he cannot have firearms or be in the law enforcement again, but I believe some kind of jail time would have been appropriate to show that you missuse your power there are consequences.

Since white guys don't, generally, go to onto Navajo land, get drunk and belligerent, attack a bartender and several other patrons, the probability of a Navajo cop violating the white guys civil rights are probably non-existent. Jes saying it like it is.

Spot on, except for the last part. The cop lost his professionalism and lost his self-restraint and starting playing a tune on the Indian's skull with his mag-lite flashlight not a baton. A mag-lite has several D-size batteries and is made of steel and it is quite heavy as opposed to a police baton which is specifically made to be light weight and especially for the purpose of subduing uncooperative suspects. How the cop reacted to the situation was absolutely wrong.
