They were fired because they were white.

Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau has fired two white police officers who scuffled with a group of black men, then used racial slurs while berating local police investigating last summer’s incident in Green Bay, Wis., according to sources close to the Police Department.

The firings of officers Brian Thole and Shawn Powell, both military veterans who were on the department’s SWAT team, will kick off an automatic appeals process that could last a year, according to a lawyer familiar with such cases. The officers have been on paid administrative leave since July.

At least one of the officers also disparaged Harteau as a lesbian in the June 29 incident, which was partly recorded on video and described in a 40-page Green Bay Police Department report. The officers, who were off-duty, were not charged with any crime in Green Bay, but the department there reported the incident to the Minneapolis department, prompting the internal affairs process that led to Tuesday’s firing.

Ron Edwards, a longtime Minneapolis civil rights activist, applauded Harteau’s decision.“She is sending a message that disrespect under her leadership will not be tolerated and I commend her for her courage,” he said.

When it first came to light, the incident brought immediate condemnation from city, police and union leaders. The Star Tribune learned days later that at least three more Minneapolis officers had been cited for assault months before for a similar incident in Apple Valley.

They were fired for being White.......... and Male!

How stupid must one be to believe that ANY Cop,(red, yellow, black, white, male, female, homosexual, transgendered, obese, or HIV positive) who deals every day with Tribal Citizens that have abandoned their children to the Feral "Folks" in The Community, has not used a derogatory slang to describe the "folks" whose children slaughter each other in their homes and in their Hood!

Feminist Womyn are Barry Obama's Handlers.

This is what Amerika will look like until the end.

Hopefully the end will come at the Ballot Box.
