Brickbat: Say What?

|

Hamilton, Georgia, Police Chief Gene Allmond has resigned and Patrolman John Brooks has been fired after the two were caught on Brooks' body cam repeatedly using the n-word, while discussing  a Black Lives Matter protest. The officer had believed his body cam was not working, but when another city official examined the camera he found it actually had a full memory card, which included the conversation between Allmond and Brooks.

  2. If they had any brains they would have said that they both identified as black and were just using it as a term of endearment. Problem solved, the force still loses the two white officers plus gains two hip new black officers, win-win for everybody.

  3. Always assume the camera is on. Now a days you don’t even have to say things as awful as what these cops said to be in hot water.

    1. It’s in every hip hop song so it can’t be that awful.

      1. True, but, it’s ‘culture’ don’t you know?

      2. Depending on the song, the f-word is also there.

      3. As a stunning and brave LatinX, I always just substitute the word “officer” for that word when I sing hip hop songs. For example, this one by Fat Joe:

        “My officers don’t dance /
        They just pull up their pants/
        And do the rockaway/
        Lean back! Lean back!”

        1. If you genuinely want to censor, both “rapper” and “brother” fit the rhyme and scan, and both typically make as much or more sense than the original.

          1. Since when does rap have to rhyme? I prefer ‘nipples’.

    2. They’re elected officials, on duty, with the legal monopoly of force. They should be held to a higher standard than hip hop or bad jokes or the Reason commentariat. The N-word is out for them.

      1. Police chiefs are generally appointed, not elected. And no patrolman is elected.

      2. So your still in favor of selective rigjts

    3. Heck even in phone conversations with friends and family we assume we are being monitored. actually we know the NSA is monitoring but luckily they have to much shit to process as is unless they decide to go after anyone personally.

  4. Politicians, foremost, have a responsibility to the states that they were elected to represent, and not to an administration that is using them as fodder for party-wide platitudes. Democrat or Republican is incidental to the fact that certain states would suffer profound economic consequences should they foster and support many of these changes. Slowly but surely, state autonomy is being stripped away. This should alarm any reasonable person. Read More.

    1. That’s bait. Don’t click.

  5. …and the police chief talked about with whom he would rather have sex with, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms or voting rights activist Stacey Abrams.

    “It was disgusting. I had to leave the room,” Hamilton Mayor Pro-Tem Ransom Farley said.

    Disgusting? That’s a little harsh. Surely the idea of Abrams or Bottoms isn’t that bad.

    1. It really is. Ugh, and I *just* ate, too.

    2. After reviewing the evidence, I’ve concluded that Abrams is the reason he had to leave the room.

    3. Bottoms, no, but yes, the idea of sex with Abrams is that bad.

  6. Yeah it`s Possible…Anybody can earn 250$+ daily… You can earn from 6000-12000 a month or even more if you work as a full time job…It’s easy, just follow instructions on this page, read it carefully from start to finish… It’s a flexible job But a good

  7. So, like I was thinking, I have this immense respect and approval from a historically oppressed group like us for this young American generation, raising the bar and pushing it forward. Maybe the crisis in America will all normalize every day. Normalize, honestly. That’s going to be a big day. I am quite skeptical if it has ever occurred.

  8. This will not end until we divide the country.

    Wokes get the NE and West coasts, and Chicago for a stop over [a la West Berlin]. Non wokes get everything else.

    And why wouldn’t they be happy with that? As Hilda von Broomstick put it, those are the up and coming areas that voted for her in 2016, and where women didn’t let their husbands tell them how to vote.

    1. Wokes get the NE and West coasts, and Chicago for a stop over [a la West Berlin]. Non wokes get everything else.

      And why wouldn’t they be happy with that?

      Because what’s the point of being woke and progressive if you can’t use government force to make those bitter clingers and deplorables in flyover country live the way you think they should? That’s kind of their whole raison d’etre. That and throwing twitter tantrums anytime one of those deplorables refuses to put their pronouns in their bio.

      1. Sadists need others.

    2. Hey now! Not the “Live Free Or Die” State of New Hampshire! I may want to visit or live there some day.

      1. Visit, yes. Live, no. But then, I hate winter.

      2. Some sacrifices will need to be made. Sorry all your neighbors are shit, NH. :-\

      3. Build your own New Hampshire.

    3. Why should I give up living on the coast. End all leftest tyranny everywhere.

  10. The officer had believed his body cam was not working

    You mean these things are REAL????

  11. I just wish it were as easy to fire a cop for shooting an unarmed person on the ground and lying about the circumstances as it is to fire them for racism.

    1. Closeted, passive/idle racism no less. It’s not like they were walking around telling black officers to get coffee or pick cotton, or plotting how to plant a knife on Freddie Gray so they could give him a nickel ride.

      That’s a pretty good point to raise with BLM, though.
