God forbid that the police department hires the best qualified. The color is more important. Question for the ACLU, if I need a police man, can I request a specific race? Seems to be where they are heading with this.

Let's see - drug deals, blacks only - robbery - Hispanic officers only -- domestic violence, women only -- traffic stops, depends on the neighborhood. Yep, great concept this ACLU has.

blacks act like they were the only ones that were held as slaves..

newsflash blacks..

there were BLACK slave owners in the us
you were sold by your fellow black man

I'm sorry I rather have a competent officer working for us than some lazy negro who only got hired because of affirmative action

They need to legalize slavery! Blacks had it good. They had a job, and room and board!!! And they were kept in their place!!!

Wow, old fool! Do you truly enjoy the company of the lame-brained bigots your diatribes attract?

That's sad, old man, so very, very sad. But it is a generational predilection, and that will be corrected naturally, in the fullness of time... bye, bye, old man!

The state of HPD has never been worse. Incompetent persons promoted under Reed are now in command and.........crime is soaring!!

Just ask the chief or mayor: what initiatives are under way to battle the absolute out of control crack cocaine trade.........NOTHING.

Cmon residents.......when are you going to hold the chief and mayor's feet to the fire??
