You don’t have to be a rotten ass Nigger to be on the police force!

ATLANTA, Georgia (BNW) —
Lord knows we need good law enforcement in the Black community in this country, and in too many cases in our quest to protect the dignity of the community, we have to call on the police. While we know most of the white cops that occupy the Black communities across this country are racists, we are finding that many of the Blacks on the police force are unqualified thugs.

Recently, an informant cited in a search warrant as having purchased narcotics at an elderly Atlanta woman's house denies buying drugs there, authorities say.

Just today, seven former juvenile boot camp guards and a nurse have been charged with aggravated manslaughter in the death of a boy whose rough handling by the guards was videotaped, a special prosecutor said.

Last weekend, police fired 50 rounds at a car of unarmed men leaving a bachelor party at a strip club, killing the groom on his wedding day in a shooting that drew a furious outcry from family members and community leaders.

What these cases have in common is that Black officers played a major role in the killings of their own people. I know there are good cops out there, but there are some, both white and Black who are not psychologically fit to even wear the badge.

I can’t speak for the white racists who wear the badge, but for the Black cops who are only on the force to protect the interest of the Black community, you don’t have to be a rotten ass Nigger to be on the police force!

Undercover officers raiding the 88-year-old woman's house shot her to death last week after she fired on them while they broke down her door in a high-crime neighborhood.

Federal prosecutors will investigate the case, Atlanta police Chief Richard Pennington announced this week. Pennington said the eight-member narcotics squad that took part in the raid has been placed on paid leave while investigators look into the informant's story and the circumstances surrounding the November 21 death of Kathryn Johnston.

The informant also told investigators from the Atlanta police internal affairs bureau that he was told to lie about the matter, the chief said.

"The FBI will investigate his statements, along with the police officers' statements as well," Pennington said.

Authorities said Johnston opened fire on police who tried to enter her home, prying off burglar bars and forcing open her door, during a "no-knock" drug raid. Officers returned fire, killing her.

Relatives put Johnston's age at 92, but Fulton County medical examiners said she was 88.

Neighbors and relatives said the raid had to have been a mistake. They said Johnston lived alone and was so afraid of crime in her neighborhood west of downtown Atlanta that she wouldn't let neighbors who delivered groceries for her come into her home.

Who can forget the video of Martin Lee Anderson,14, collapsing on the exercise yard at the Bay County sheriff's camp in Panama City on January 5. Guards, many who were Black, said the teen was uncooperative and refused to continue participating in exercises that were part of the camp's intake processes.

He died early the next morning in Pensacola.

Benjamin Crump, the attorney for Anderson's parents, was in Panama City with the family Tuesday and didn't immediately return a call for comment.

The boy's death sparked protests in the state capital, the elimination of the military-style boot camp system and the resignation of the state's top law enforcement officer.

An initial autopsy by medical examiner Dr. Charles Siebert found Anderson died of complications of sickle cell trait, a usually benign blood disorder.

A second autopsy by Dr. Vernard Adams, the medical examiner for Hillsborough County, found Anderson's death was caused by suffocation due to the actions of the guards.

He said hands blocking the boy’s mouth, as well as the “forced inhalation of ammonia fumes” that caused his vocal cords to spasm caused the suffocation, blocking Anderson's upper airway.

In the New York killing, two of the officers were Black and two were Hispanic involved in the murder of an innocent man. The mad gunfire of bullets hit the car 21 times, after the vehicle rammed into an undercover officer and then an unmarked NYPD minivan twice, police said. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly would not say if the collisions were what prompted police to open fire.

It was too early to say whether the shooting was justified, Kelly said. Police thought one of the men in the car might have had a gun. But police found no weapons.

"Although it is too early to draw conclusions about this morning's shootings ... we know that the NYPD officers on the scene had reason to believe that an altercation involving a firearm was about to happen and were trying to stop it," Mayor Michael Bloomberg said in a statement.

Kelly said the incident stemmed from an undercover operation inside the strip club. Seven officers in plain clothes were investigating the Kalua Cabaret, and five were involved in the shooting. The gunfire also hit nearby homes and a train station, though no residents were injured.

A veteran officer fired his weapon 31 times, emptying two full magazines, Kelly said. All the officers carried 9 mm handguns.

The groom, who was driving, was identified as Sean Bell, 23. Joseph Guzman, 31, was in the front seat and was shot at least 11 times. Trent Benefield, 23, who was in the back seat, was hit three times. Both men were taken to Mary Immaculate Hospital. Guzman was listed in critical condition and Benefield was in stable condition.

Kelly said there may have been a fourth person in the car who fled the scene.

Three officers, including the officer hit by the car, were treated and released. Another detective remained hospitalized for blood pressure, Kelly said.

Abraham Kamara, 38, who lives a few blocks from the club, said he was getting ready for work at about 4 a.m. when he heard bursts of gunfire.

"First it was like four shots," he said. "And then it was like pop-pop-pop like 12 times."

Rev. Al Sharpton posed briefly for a photo with Mayor Bloomberg in City Hall's blue room before holding his own press conference on the steps of City Hall.

Surrounded by supporters, Sharpton said, "The city must show moral outrage." He alleged that some of the undercover officers at the scene were drinking.

(Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said at least one officer had "two drinks, two beers in the bar," and that the officer in charge of the scene said all officers were "fit for duty.")

Sharpton said the black police union, 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care, had taken a vote of no confidence in Kelly and that, overall, community relations with the police are in trouble.

"Imagine living in a city where you have to live in fear of cops and robbers," he said.

Sharpton and company then left to meet with the family, and he said he'll also meet with the Queens DA and speak publicly around 4:30.

Bloomberg, during his own press conference inside City Hall, said he was "deeply concerned," and that Kelly will be the Police Commissioner for the remainder of Bloomberg's term in office.

"There's nobody that should go out into the street and be worried about their safety," Bloomberg said.

NYPDConfidential has a comparison of this incident to the Amadou Diallo shooting.
