Re: A Tail of Two Dogs

We need to watch the Po-Po more closely!!
This is so true and unfortunately many Middle class white activists don't even realize the privileges and benefits that come with a certain skin color. Kudos to dirtman for exposing this obvious hypocrisy and yet another example of what is called selective enforcement depending on "profiles". This is no better than D.W.B. (driving while black or brown) and obviously race isn't the only factor. One must also consider social class.
The po-po in this town needs constant reminders that they are suposed to protect and serve, not endanger and repress the general public, meaning EVERYONE NOT JUST WHITE YUPPIES. There are some good officers on the force and we need to acknowledge their good efforts towards keeping our hoods safe. But some unfortunately, especially the cops who work the downtown area, are extremely over zealous and punitive with people. They often don't listen or respond to comments or questions. Too often they just act with out thinking or attempting to understand the situation. This is good for no one.

On a final note, I had a male Latino SCPD officer try to tell me that police harrassment doesn't exist in SC and that the police are "just doing their job". LOL... that one kept me chuckling for weeks....
