    In a roundabout way, this post is about that dark, evil racist hiding inside of us all. We're just projecting it onto the thread because our collective fathers didn't hug us as children.

    I know where you are going with this and the two situations along with the information provided to the public are entirely different. The only problem with your strategy is that I'm much better at this game than you are, apsdt.

    Oh, so now it's different? I get it.

    It really should be patently obvious to any half way intelligent person that if a group of people within a population are to be advantaged in some way, that the remainder of that population are going to be disadvantaged.

    I stand 100% with his original comment.
    Yeah, the white people have been downtrodden too long!

    Then again I'm not racist and I had the make up to do the job and deal with the stresses associated with it. Maybe I'm an anomaly in that I didn't let the people I was dealing with dictate whether or not I would decide to hate on an entire race. Who know?

    And the dramatic angle...please don't attempt to over exaggerate the realities of police work when dealing with someone who did it for a decade and a half. You don't "look death in the eye everyday." It's not quite like that, even in the most crime infested areas. Police work is 90% "routine" boredom, 8% heart pumping action, 2% "Oh **** I can't believe that just happened."
    Wouldn't the time spent eating donuts fall under the 'heart pumpimg action'?....
    I would think the percentage would be higher.......
    I'm just sayin'.......

    Horsecrap.

    Contacts and groups are routinely intermingled in a standard MS Exchange contact list. How you personally have your contact list set up is irrelevant.

    It is not uncommon for people to be in a hurry and accidentally click on the wrong contact. I saw it happen at one of my companies just last week where an attorney clicked on the contact above the one he really wanted to send to. This resulted in sending confidential internal case documents to the opposing council. It happens. Are you going to sit there and tell me that this attorney was secretly sympathetic to the opposing lawyers and that's why he sent that email message?

    You cannot ascribe motive or beliefs to a person based on a mistakenly sent e-mail message. I have forwarded e-mail to friends based on both agreement and on strong disagreement. I have printed out some of the comments here that I strongly disagree with so as to ridicule those statements to others. Because I printed out a statement by Lerxst suddenly means I agree with his statements? Again, horse crap!

    Can you show me anything that says that he was the creator of the message and not just reading something and passing it along? (or maybe even NOT reading it and passing it along?)

    Besides, I see nothing racist about this email.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Even if he didn't read it (A big IF), ignorance is not going to cut it in passing it along.

    What's next, saying "I didn't know that was a child pornography site officer"?

    Any more worthless hyperbole from you?
