    Police Officer suspended after jungle monkey

    The race row in the U.S. took a bizarre twist last night when a Boston police officer was suspended for calling Professor Gates"a banana eating jungle monkey". In a furios and at times ungrammatical rant at a reporter on the Boston Globe newspaper,the email,allegedly written by Officer Barrett " If I were the officer,and he verbally me like a banana eating monkey,I would have sprayed him in the face with OC. The Boston Police Department has placed the officer on administrative leave pending the outcome of a hearing. U.K. Times on Line.

    Racism, PC, and freedom of expression aside, it should be a little troubling how cavalier the cops in US are nowadays about using pepper spray and tasers at the slightest provocation. The cop "would have sprayed him in the face with OC" for mouthing off? You vill not speak to ze authorities in zat vay or you vill be punished.

    The mayor of Boston referred to him as a "cancer" (the cop) and wants him canned. I am from the Boston area, and racism is alive and well....unfortunately!

    I have never been Tazered nor Maced, Guess I quit drinking about the right time, a cop did threaten to hose me down with Mace once but I talked him out of it while I had the Sgt. upside down in the shitter and trying to drowed him.

    But they are Porch monkeys tho. and some kinda like the gas and some that is made for Black crowd control is watermellon and KFC flavored.

    What a dumb thing to say, even worse to put it in print in an email to a newspaper journalist. Just plan stupid! I'll bet he was pissed at the time he wrote the offending email and venting at the racism angle being played out by Gates.

    If this cop really was as bad as he he made out in the email he would have been weeded out long ago. Just some pissed up off duty copper venting and trying to sound tough is my bet.

    He will probably claim work related stress aggravated by Gates accusations and issue an apology. I would think that normally he would undergo counseling rehabilitation and return to work a new man. But in this case I reckon he might be just the sacrificial lamb that everyone has been looking for.

    Could very well be Panda, I know I used to get fucked up and call the chief of police when ever my wife lived in our hometown and I was working away and happen to come home for a time off.
    And I did spend some time enjoying his hospitality.

    I think Mace is a lot more dangerous than pepper spray. BG's attempted humor about "gas" flavored to fit certain racial stereotypes aside, I have read that people from chili pepper cultures, like Mexicans and Thais, don't react as harshly to pepper spray- lower grades might not even work. (Please, BG, "porch monkeys"? You are dating yourself.)

    The problem with pepper spray and Tazers is that cops use it with impunity because no-one gets "hurt." Police departments are starting to tighten up on guidelines for use, but when cops seem too ready to use these rather than talk/think. The guy who got tased in front of family for not giving his driver's license to the cop (on YouTube, I think) is a case in point.

    And I used to buy a High grade of Pepper spray from a weapons supply dealer in Ensenada, and my brother and a friend were down in town one night at a coffee shop and some Mexicans were giving them some shit and my brothers friend maced the pricks and that pepper gas done a job on them from what I heard.

    Anyway, I thought the politically-correct term was 'jungle-bunny'.

    I have heard then referred to as Jungle Bunny's, also spear Chuckers, but I think that they prefer "African Americans" as they do not want to be Americans like everyone else so therefore the "African" designator to stop any doubt as to what they are and all very racist and have been since they found out that it gets them more benefits than being American..

    "the email,allegedly written by Officer Barrett"

    Do you know how easy it is to spoof an email address... It would take me less than 10 minutes to send a similar email and make it appear to be from BO himself, including proper IP addresses and routing info... I'm not saying he didn't do it, but from what little text provided it looks more like a drunken rant than anything serious...

    Yet without so much as a hares-breath of an investigation this person has been found guilty of being non-PC by everyone from the mayor of Boston to the TD aficionados...

    BTW, the correct colloquial expression is 'jungle-bunny', not 'jungle-monkey'...
    Give a man a match, and he'll be warm for a minute, but set him on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    It's also good to have if your taco lacks heat.

    I saw cops on several occasions beat white guys up for no good reason. I doubt being black is an advantage when dealing with a control freak cop with violence issues.

    The black people in my neighborhood in Florida for the most part don't want to be called African-Americans. Most are from Jamaica, Haiti, Bahamas, etc. Others are Hispanic. If you have to refer to skin color for some reason I think black is the way to go. BG probably remembers when "Negro" was the polite term (maybe I do, too, vaguely). Now that word is almost always good for a laugh when used by blacks or whites. I think the instances in which another person's skin color takes on significance are in practical terms very limited, unless you're a racist or a hyper-sensitive race crusader. I can understand why African-American makes more sense to some people, but I'm not going to worry about it, because the term is kind of meaningless when examined. What are you if from Morocco or a white emigre from Jo'burg (I took one of those to my senior prom)? Do I want to be called a European American? Not especially. Same goes for Asian-American- what a bogus, utterly meaningless description. I suspect my kid will be called one sooner or later if he goes to the States, which will be strange.

    Yea, Negro or Colored folks.That used to be the way.
    When I worked in Alabama they were also Negro or colored and didn't think much of Africans American either, I did hire one that came looking for a job and I thought he talked funny, and then a black lead man I had came and asked me why I had hired that nigger from New York, then I looked and his car did have NY plates, my guy told me I shouldn't have hired him as he was going to be trouble, and I guess he was cause my guys had him out in the back shop and kicked his ass and he was gone, told me he was trying to stir up racist trouble and they did;t need any.

    Is a turnip still referred to as a "Swede" in some quarters? Or was that the other way around?
