No doubt I'm gonna be in the vast minority on this, but I say, fair is fair--discrimination DOES go both ways and shouldn't be allowed.

Good! The time has come to actually treat people in the manner actually called for by Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. For too long, reverse discrimination has been practiced in a effort to make up for past wrongs. That only perpetuated the friction between the races and created a second wrong.

Let's try to actually judge people on relevant factors and not on the basis of skin color or sex.

This happens all the time -- white men are the group most discriminated against (it's the natural result of the ridiculous "affirmative action" laws)...I'm told if you want a great anything, look for a white male. He wouldn't be in his position if he wasn't BETTER than all others! I hope they win, and expect they will.

Police forces are only as effective as their leadership. As long as Indianapolis promotes people to leadership based on anything other than leadership qualifications, we will not be policed effectively. You can have the greatest cops in the world, but if they are being directed by people who were promoted for reasons other than being the best leaders, those cops will be demoralized and their abilities will be wasted.

Go away white guys, this is no longer our country. I heard someone had a bumper sticker that said, "America, love it or give it back".

All are good officers and I for one am glad that they are brave enough to do this! Promotions, pay raises etc should be based on merit and performance, not on race or gender!

I much prefer promotions based upon race and gender then upon skills and performance of duties. Who needs someone that can aim and protect you when you can have a nice politically correct investigation of your murder.

When I saw that Justice filed a discrimination lawsuit, I knew it had to be to protect white men. George Bush hates black people

This will be in court for 10 years and nothing will happen except a few law firms getting rich. Its funny, white men enjoyed having this country and all of its perks for hundreds of years and now they want to whine. They were pretty happy when the "whites only" signs were hanging but now all of a sudden they hate discrimination. How soon we forget?
