The case was marginal. But the black police chief caved in to the black police officers association. The positive side to this story is that the black accuser was also dismissed.
That was an excellent "do right" by the police chief demonstrating that BLACKS can be just as big a racist as WHITES. No room at LRPD for either.

Agree with your conclusion re the outcome, drs, but not that the case was marginal. I get why some African Americans think it’s ok for them, but not whites, to use the N word but, IMO, it’s a very dangerous double standard. I’d like to see everyone adopt the zero tolerance policy the LRPD has in this case.

Yes, marginal. According to the recruit, this was a joke between friends. If the guy in the picture was cool with it, and as far as the reporting seems to imply, he WAS, then this was no big deal. As long as we continue to give power to the word, power it will have.
