I have tightened up on the comments I let go through, but here is one I thought I should highlight just because of the stupidity.
This was posted Monday under the name Malcolm X Lives:
Kevin Brookman your nothing but a racist and a coward and your day is coming its funny how your headline only speaks of officers of color no mention of Sergeant Kessler an his racist antics an no mention of the lawsuits that your Boy Chief Foley is involved in in which I may add all involve people of color you are not a part of the solution but a part of the problem and when the smoke clears you and the police chief are going to be swimming in lawsuits for defamation of character and finally you will never be nominated for anything in the city of Hartford because the word is out you are nothing but a bigot!!!!! PS you know damn well who typed this but im sure you wont post it
It is interesting they start off by calling me a coward and then have to post under the name Malcolm X. The next part is that he(or she) says that my headline only speaks of "Officers of Color". Can anyone point out to me anywhere in that headline where race or color is ever mentioned? Is "Low T" a racial term I haven't been made aware of?
The poster really shows their ignorance when they make the posting about race. I guess that is what you do though when the truth doesn't matter and you have no facts to stand on...make it about race. If they had any idea what they were talking about, they would know that the Patrol Sergeant and the Major Crimes Sergeant I mentioned are both white. I purposely didn't name all of those involved because I didn't want to make it about race or personality.
The comment that I didn't name Sergeant Kessler is also amazing and shows the writers profound ignorance. Look back and ask yourself how anyone found out about Kessler's antics. I'll help remind you. it is because I was the first one to expose it here. Yes here, and then the media jumped on it and it became very public, but it would have probably never been exposed if I didn't do the digging first.
And if we are going to talk about being a racist and covering for racial incidents, ask yourself how the other big incident involving race came about last year. The Dispatcher using the "N" word over the radio. It was here on "We the People". Sure sounds like a cover up to me, Malcolm.
The comments about Chief Foley are laughable. Clearly you know nothing about him or his personal life. And that is enough said, I don't need to help clarify your ignorance. The only lawsuit I am aware of is one against the City and former Chief Daryl Roberts for homophobic comments he directed at Foley. Stupid comments made by a Supervisor which are ignorant regardless of the commenters race... black white or other.
And the "defamation of character " claim...more nonsense.The truth is not defamatory. You might not like the truth or may have a tough time dealing with it, but it is what it is. Stop hiding behind claims of racism and start dealing with the truth. If you don't like the truth being exposed, maybe you should start dealing with whoever you are trying to support and tell them to clean up their act so I have nothing to write about
