    Tenn. trooper suspended over white pride e-mail

    Tenn. trooper suspended over white pride e-mail - Yahoo! News

    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.

    Ew. There's nothing to stand by. The guy is a dick. Hope that diversity training helps a little bit. Jesus.


    "The e-mail from Trooper Brent Gobbell states, in part, "You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member ... you call him a racist." It also includes a list of racist epithets."

    Its one thing to have what he said. Its another thing to broadcast racial slurs (which it seems to say was a part of this) to close to 800 state employees. Whether it was an accident or not, that's just unacceptable.

    And the notion that "They" do all the carjacking, robbing, etc is just as ignorantly broad stroke racism as the immediate assumption and accusation that a white person that happens to shoot a black person is automatically racist.

    Sounds like he forwarded the same stupid chain e-mail that we all get from time to time. Ooooops.

    It's a shame that it even matters. Oh well, I guess we have to protect the good name of the minorities from those ign'ant white males!

    The guy snapped from the pressure. The stress obscured his judgement.

    I'd check out the guys arrest record and case work as well. It is not exactly uncommon for racist prejudices to result in gross injustice. Personally, I don't really care if he is racist or not, but I do care that he does not abuse his powers as a law enforcement officer.

    I'd say that he got what he deserved. People need to take email seriously. I can't imagine doing something like that, he's lucky he didn't get fired. He needs a class in office ettiquette at the very least. What a moron!

    Without knowing exactly what epithets he used and in what context it's a little hard to make an intelligent comment on this tiny snippet of a story.
    To some on this site if you go too far by talking about Obama using the truth and facts and backing them all up with Obama's own while providing links to video of him saying things you can be still be called a racist, by the intelligence & intellectually challenged among us. I just saw it today.
    Racial epithets are in the mind of those who read or hear something they don't like. I am offended when I hear Black brothers calling each other nigger. Some can't say 10 words without bringing it up in everyday conversation. The same people tend to call all women hoes and bitches, use ignorant terms found only in Ebonics and acceptable to some but offensive to most normal people. And yes I am saying the people I'm talking about are not normal. They go out of their way to make sure everyone knows they are doing it generally deliberately to illicit a response or to stand out in a group.
    I know this to be a fact but don't you dare AXE me how I know SUCKA.
    15 days off is no big deal. Everyone needs to know that even email you delete is not removed from the server and the same goes for every text you send and receive. So be careful what you say even here because Carnivore is still monitoring everything along with echelon. Have a nice day.

    Don't worry, rathi will check it all out for you. He'll find out the last time the guy wiped his ass, and let you know. I don't know how he'll do it though.
