  •  I remember a case around the Charleston (2+ / 0-)

    area that involved a biracial couple. The officer saw the couple and their child at a ball game (I think) and later stopped them on a bogus traffic violation. They were using racial slurs and got very physical with the man. I think BOTH officers were fired. I certainly don't want to sound like i am in ANY way defending what these officers did, but I think that some of this could have been avoided if they were trained properly and given a decent wage. I'm glad to see that some first steps are being taken to help remedy this problem.
