Guardian Unlimited | World Latest | Black Officers Seek Rape Case Review
NEW YORK (AP) - A group of black police officers is asking federal authorities to look into the investigation of the 1989 beating and rape of a female jogger in Central Park, saying police may have been ``overzealous'' in pinning the crime on five teenagers.
[. . .] Lt. Eric Adams, head of One Hundred Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care, said he would ask the United States attorney's office to review the case.
``We believe that because of the demand to bring someone to justice from this crime, we believe that there is a strong possibility that there may have been overzealous policing and overzealous prosecuting,'' Adams said.
Even if you trust the AP (after all, they're no 'mercan-haters like Reuters), we can discount the comments of Lt. Adams, since he's black, and therefore places racial solidarity above dedication to the truth.
I mean, you know how those people are.
Why, just ask the totally unbiased and open-minded sorts at the Manhatten Institute:
Cops black, white, Hispanic, you name it scratch their heads at the seeming priorities of the so-called community. "There can be 50 shootings of civilians, and no one will protest," marvels John Hayward, a fast-talking community-response officer from the Philadelphia department. "If a cop shoots one person, everyone's demonstrating. If you protest against us, why don't you protest against the drug dealers?"
Surely the cops would get more support from the community if their moral authority were not constantly under siege from left-wing activists within and outside police departments. Lt. Eric Adams of the NYPD has made a media career for himself by testifying against the department before every camera he can find, as the self-appointed head of a mysterious organization called One Hundred Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care.
Every time Adams says something negative about the police, observes Wilbur Chapman, the NYPD's chief of patrol during the 1990s, the department loses blacks who are "on the fence," whether as witnesses or potential recruits. "There's no voice to say:, 'This is not the reality,'" says Chapman. (Adams did not return my calls.)
Oh, that wacky Heather Mac Donald.
Setting back racial progress every time she so much as looks at a keyboard.
