New Zealand Policewoman to Indian cab driver, “You come here and get all the Kiwi jobs. Eat your fucking curry and fuck off to India. This is a Kiwi job.”

NEW ZEALAND - A (white) policewoman has been found guilty of racially abusing a taxi driver of Indian origin in Queenstown, New Zealand.

Constable Jeanette May McNee, 44, had denied the charge, laid after an incident in November last year.

But Judge Tony Couch found her guilty of using insulting words to Ganesh Paramanathan after a two-day trial in Queenstown District Court.

Judge Couch found she had told Mr Paramanathan among other things during a dispute about a fare to “eat your f***ing curry and f*** off to India” and “this is a Kiwi job”.

Mr Paramanathan said he warned her not to touch him and that he would call the police. “She got very aggressive, held the door handle and said 'I am the police' .”

Fleeing court as soon as the guilty verdict was delivered, Jeanette McNee was whisked away by one of the many supporters who accompanied her in court during the trial.

McNee will be sentenced on September 23.

Deputy who killed former Napster COO after drifting into the bike lane while distracted by his laptop will not face charges because he was answering a work-related email.

OH OKAY.

I accidentally killed someone, you guys, but I was just doing research for an article I’m writing, so that makes it ok. That’s how it works, right?

LTMC: Meanwhile, 16-year olds get prosecuted for manslaughter for texting while driving.  But don’t worry, police don’t get special treatment.

White privilege

Forty-six million white adults today can trace the origins of their family wealth to the Homestead Act of 1862. This bill gave away valuable acres of land for free to white families, but expressly precluded participation by Blacks.

You cannot call a society which has 3.5 million homeless and 18.5 million vacant homes civil. That’s violent and morally bankrupt.

Police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, have begun wearing body cameras after weeks of unrest over the shooting death of an unarmed black teen by a white officer and sharply differing accounts of the incident, officials said on Sunday.

Michael Brown, 18, was shot multiple times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, sparking nearly three weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and drawing global attention to race relations in the United States.

Law enforcement and witnesses gave differing accounts of what transpired before Brown was shot, with police saying the teen had struggled with the officer. Witnesses say Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.

The discrepancy has revived calls for officers across the county to be outfitted with body cameras to help capture an accurate record of police-involved incidents.

Bill O’Reilly “does not believe in white privilege,” saying it’s a “big lie that is keeping some African-Americans from reaching their full potential.”

Now back to reality:

  • One in 3 black men can expect to go to prison at some point. 
  • A black college student “has the same chances of getting a job as a white high school dropout.” 
  • Media cover 19.5% of cases with missing African American children, while 33.2% of missing children cases involve black kids. 
  • At least “4 million African-Americans and Latinos experience housing discrimination each year.” 
  • While black Americans make up 14% of monthly drug users, “they are 37% of the people arrested for drug offenses.” 
  • We could go on and on and on

If nothing else he’s consistent with his bullshit so nothing he does or says shocks me. He’s still a piece of shit but at least I know to always expect that from him.
