I just read the Email that landed Captain Justin Barrett (National Guard) and Boston Police officer in hot water. I try to stay as open minded as possible when it comes to the sensitive issue of race. I saw him apologize on CNN and say that he is not a racist and that his "Jungle Monkey" or as he put it "Racial slur" was taken out of context.

This lead me to look up the letter that he wrote. HOW IN THE HELL IS IT TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT WHEN YOU USE IT THAT MANY TIMES AND EVEN IN CLOSING?!?!

I commend the Boston Police department for suspending him, and the National Guard for doing the same. You can't change people's point of views, and you can't force people to like everyone. You can however, require people (especially those in public eye or public servants) to act professionally, and choose their words carefully. This idiot put himself out there and IDENTIFIED himself as a police officer and military!

I say to you Mr. Barrett, you are getting what you deserve and I hope that you can get some help if you so choose. If nothing else, you should have kept your damn mouth shut, because you came off as a racist! As a military vet. YOU disgust me!

Moved to Off Topic.

Also, you may want to include the text of the email you're referencing since many peeps (like me) may not know what you're ranting about.

as sad as this is to read and hear about, racism is every where. no matter what color or planet your from, someone will find a way to hate you for some stupid ass reason. racism is a very disturbing disease, kinda like AIDS, it kills all who consumes it in there life. theres no cure for it, only medications to prolong the inevitable. its a shitty world, and we make it that way. all we can do is do our best to co-exist with eachother, if not. the entire human race will die out. just my opnion though....

I don't see how he could have been a former English teacher and writer. "..Ax you the question", "Ax me what I think." What the hell is "ax"?

But yeah, this dude is way too angry to have a gun and a position of authority.
