In a case that just bolsters my theory that law enforcement has become a haven for virulent white supremacists, a former Prospect, Ky., assistant police chief told a Louisville Metro Police Department recruit that if he caught juveniles smoking marijuana, he should “shoot them” if they were black. And worse.
I’m rarely shocked by racism. It often angers me. But knowing you live in a world co-existing alongside such evil and hate is depressing. It’s never surprising, but it still hurts.
