Sarcasm is OK
- It's not what he did. It's what a Chicago Police officer said Tuesday night to passengers in a car he pulled over at 25th Albany Avenue on the southwest side.
An exchange between the officer and the passengers has caught the attention of Police Superintendent Jody Weis.
Really? This catches the attention of J-Failure? This? After one of his exempt picks is arrested after almost a week of dithering, another is violating FAA rules with armed airfield incursions, another has dope and guns confiscated on her property, and THIS pops up on his radar? What a joke.
- On the 5-minute recording given to WGN News, the officer tells them, "Normally when someone tells me why did I get pulled over, I tell them 'cause they're (expletive) black."
The driver responded by saying, "That's prejudice though."
The passengers say they view the statement as racial profiling.
We're told the officer was Hispanic. The car occupants were Hispanic. The entire neighborhood is Hispanic. The car was pulled over for window tint. Racial profiling doesn't even enter into the equation. What the officer said isn't germane to the discussion in any terms except professionalism or lack thereof. And the lack thereof? J-Failure clears the officer in his statement:
- In a statement to WGN News, Superintendent Jody Weis said, "The manner in which the officer and subject interacted was unacceptable. Officers are trained and expected to deal with these situations in a professional manner, free of unnecessary sarcasm."
Obviously, this means that if the officer feels that sarcasm was necessary (and there is no rule or order that defines when an officer can or cannot feel that sarcasm be utilized in citizen interactions), then the entire incident must be judged on the officer's interpretation of the necessity of sarcastic, or even caustic, wit. J-Failure was not there, was not trained by the Chicago Police Department, and as a feeb has never been in possession of a sense of humor, let alone an ability to recognize sarcasm.
- The driver and the passengers say they didn't do anything wrong Tuesday night, and do admit they have a a troubled history with police.
And they're using J-Failure and his touchy-feely politically correct exempt staff to do their dirty work. Way to go idiots! You're being played by gangbangers and they're laughing at you while coppers shake their heads. You think this cop and most of the 010th District are going to think twice about pulling over carloads of gangbangers from here on out? Way to have their backs! Warriors!
