    I often think that black cops feel about "black trash" the way most decent white folks feel about "white trash." That's a pretty truthful portrayal, in my experience. Also, villifying the white cop is just too easy.

I do not believe you know what it is like when you take an exam and out of the four questions asked you only have enough time to answer three. And all what you can do is cross your fingers and hope that you passed. Do you? The kids are young but they have made many social sacrifices just so that they can pass their classes.
    I agree. It is hard on adults to understand the pressure kids have today. Kids of middle managers will have a hard time doing better than their parents in today's environment. The next generation doing better is part of the American thinking. So the pressure to get great grades, get great SAT and ACT scores etc may be self imposed but it there nonetheless.

    The uncoming generation seem to be a bunch of achievers. Another myth in my view are teachers. We have been very happy with the teaching that our son received till now.

    It still seems like a stereotype of cops more than anything about success and uncle toms, to me.

    Then, IMO, you would make a poor law enforcer.
    Leave the judging to the judge...a very tough assignment at times.

    I'd never love arresting anyone, unless I caught some SOB in the act of some serious crime, even then, its a sad thing.
    I know I'd make a lousy cop.

    You laughed during Boys 'n Da Hood? Isn't that like laughing during the Sunday Easter show of the 10 Commandments or something?

    I absolutely crack up at the 10 Commandments. The acting makes that one of the world's greatest comedies.

    It is like my parents told me. When they graduated from college in the 70s they had a choice of where ever they wanted to work. When I graduate I have to accept what ever company is willing to hire me. But that is the free market, though.

    I haven't said anything about judging anyone now have I????
    Can you quote me on this. Thanks.

    What I enjoy is watching some turd name drop and attempt to bribe, throw blame at law enforcement, and generally try to weasel his/her way out of being charged for something that I or another Officer have probable cause to arrest them on... and they fail to change the Officer (or my) opinion about enforcing said law that they violated.

    Pretty much, douchebags who think they can get out of **** because they know someone, they "are" someone, or they think they can buy you out.

    When all that fails, they scream about murderers, rapists, drug dealers, etc, all with the dreaded "N" word in front of it, and how you shouldn't be messing with them.

    Stupid privledged white kids...
    "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.

    My solution is to have NO MORE racism.
    We are all humans.
    Lets ask the poor, why are you poor?
    And, for the first time, we must listen.
