[url]http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/722120/posts[/url] A national police group is asking the U.S. Justice Department to investigate televised remarks made by an Oklahoma City man after a videotaped beating by police of a suspect. Steve Young, national president of the Fraternal Order of Police, called for a federal investigation into comments by Sean Baker that, Young says, advocate violence against police officers. Baker, a member of the Oklahoma City chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, made the remarks after two police officers were caught on videotape striking Donald R. Pete more than two dozen times during an arrest. At a news conference after the videotape was shown, Baker said: "It's getting to the point now where the community is outraged and beginning to think they have to take to the streets and begin retaliating. Of course, we don't want that to happen, but I think the only message the police officers will understand is when they have to start passing flags to the wives and paying some death benefits. Nothing else has worked."

More whining by the <15% of the population that commits >60% of all crime! I get so sick of this crying race everytime! A white man gets his butt kicked and it is a criminal getting what he deserves. When a black man gets it then they cry "racial discrimination". The outcry is ten times worse if the cop is white. When Black Americans say ENOUGH and try to weed the criminals out of their midst and stop supporting the worthless scum maybe they will eliminate this crap. Racial harmony and mutual respect can never come about until this crap stops. Why in the world black people support these tactics I will NEVER understand, in light of the fact that much black crime is against other blacks. Not to say I support police misconduct because I don't. I feel the cops need to be held to a high standard. Sounds to me like this jackass "leader" (ha!) wants a race war. What an idiot!

I don't want to use the now over-used word "terrorist", but what else do you call someone advocating the murder of police officers to further their cause? Further more, how does a mild beating(they didn't even have him on the ground) get equated with "death benefits" and "passing flags to the wives"? If the NAACP wants to be taken seriously, it has to weed out assholes like this guy.
