    From article:

    "It was just a joke. Cops seem to spend more time investigating each other these days than they do catching criminals."



    Amen!

    Joke? He got demoted, this must be serious. If you go to Brixton, you will notice some blacks are very proud of their Mercs. These are also their cars.

    I am sure a lot of people use this statement without getting demoted, police or not. Total overeaction. which will you prefer, one that does not use this statement ,but then goes out and stops every BMW driven by a black guy?

    My wager's that if the News Business laid off the racial reminders they give us every other week, we'd forget how bigoted we all supposedly are.

    You have to be so careful in these days of extreme political correctness, a few years ago I was President of a National Institution and as such had to do a lot of after dinner speaking on several occasions my comments would be heard by government ministers and officials attending these dinners. In these cases my after dinner speech had to be e mailed and approved beforehand, the number of what I thought were inoffensive jokes that got rejected was unbelieveable and the reasons they gave were incredible. So in the end for these type of dinners I just stopped trying to crack the gags and stuck to the serious bits, although other people did still get the benefit , I share Gina and Golloms sentiments entirely PC world gone mad. There was a time and a place for the cop's comments unfortunately for him he got both wrong

    Its just reverse racism, tell me how the One Extra radio station isn't racist toward the white population or the MOBO's are not racist toward white musicians. I too despair when I read crap like this...................
