Which goes to show education, training, pretense of fairness is no guarantee of intelligent life-form or compassion for ones fellow man.
In order to achieve a better law abiding society policing in its present form must be seriously reformed or done away with altogether. In its present form, police create more problems than they solve.
How is it suppressing records? Plus, all one has is TFP word they attempted to contact Belizean authorities. American police have been known to go much further than being accused of allegedly suppressing records. I agree with belizetourist in that Boutz is a fugitive running from the law. That's agains the law even in America.
What is not being said here is there have been consequences, conditions and hardships that comes along with the citizens who fled during the 1960s, '70s and '80s willingness to return to the city. They're willing to return only on the condition that they won't have to live next door to the poor and poor minority classes by utilitizing the powers of authority to force those poor and minority from the communities they've lived in for decades.
All the letters written to the Chattanoogan by police officers or their spouses seems to live in Soddy Daisy, Harrison, Hixson, Ooltewah. That said, how is it that they can claim a police car parked at a home improve safety in the city neighborhoods they patrol and work when they all seem to live in the county? It seems they all live far away from the communities they work and patrol in. They have no real ties to and live far away from those communities they're assigned to.
MountainFire, I think we all understand the issue and the likelihood RBPD is retaliating. Still, the bottom line is the police was involved in a possible crime. They should have known better. When the judge states to the average citizen "ignorance of the law is no excuse for breaking the law" it should more so apply to police officers.
MountainFire, maybe what you say has some merit. However, Chauncey was the person in charge. She failed at that role. Civics was taught in junior high school. The Constitution and citizens' rights aren't merely for rocket scientist. It's quite basic and elementary for everyone, even a junior high school student. Whether Chauncey was properly schooled or not is no excuse. As it only requires basic common sense.
I'm just wondering how many other citizens these rogue cops have done this too, and the only difference is this time they were caught. Now, Chauncey is whining about being fired right at Christmas time? The claiming she was never properly trained? That's bullSHEETE! Some things don't require training, just common sense. If you don't have common sense along with your training you don't deserve the honor of being a police officer, serving and protecting the citizens.
I can' believe these people were in on the recall to out Mayor Littlefield. Don't they know the ones who started this recall group are the same ones who wanted to run people like them out of the city? The ones who wanted nothing to do with the poor, minorities of the city. From the very start they attacked the mayor over the issues he wanted to implement to help the poor and minorities of the city? Do these people ever do any investigating on their own before signing on the dotted line?
My message to black people: Stop whining! Roll up your sleeves and work together. The mayor can't force a store to come into your neighborhood. Furthermore, some of you look as if you could use a good walk down to Buehler's Market. It's great exercise. So stop standing like turkeys in a rain storm with your noses turned upward about to drown unless someone comes along and pull you out of the storm. You are America's original entrepenuers. How did you allow yourselves to be duped into this present attitude that someone has to always come along and do something for you? You're better than that! Now, GET UP AND GET MOVING! Stop with the whining. No one is feeling sorry for you. In tough times everyone is suffering.
