Fire All the White Cops. Do It Now.

No, not Ferguson, MO.  Louisville-fucking-Kentucky. It's just not worth the lawsuits and national embarrassment any more.


Remember, America has a black president, so racism is over.  Especially here in Kentucky.
In a Bullitt County Sheriff’s deputy’s body camera recording obtained by WDRB, Southeast Bullitt County Fire Chief Julius Hatfield can be heard discussing a car accident on I-65 in September. 
Hatfield first goes out of his way to provide assistance to Loren Dicken, who is white.
“You got a jack, ain’t you?” Hatfield asks the driver. “If you show me where them things is at, I’ll get my guys to start changing the tire for you.” 
At first, Dicken turns down the offer, but Hatfield insists, saying, “It will save you a bill.” 
Firefighters working for Hatfield even picked Dicken up from the hospital and took him back to the firehouse, where his car was ready and waiting.
Seems like a nice guy.  Bullitt County is just south of Jefferson County and Louisville, so it's not totally in the boondocks, and I-65 runs north to south through it. It's about a hour and change from here.

Yep, seems like a nice guy, Chief Hatfield.
But Hatfield treats the family of four black motorists completely differently. 
“Well, I’ve got a family of four from Cincinnati, I got to do something with,” the Bullitt County deputy tells Hatfield over the radio. 
“We ain’t taking no n*ggers here,” Hatfield replies, laughing
Instead of offering to help driver Chege Mwangi, the deputy recommends that he call the AAA motor club.
Oh. I see.  Well then.

Remind me not to take 65 down through Bullitt County anymore.

Actually, Bullitt County is just an extension of the all-white suburbs around downtown Louisville.  The ones who spent decades blocking the merger with Louisville.  The ones who torpedoed the school busing agreement that was actually working. The ones black mothers warn their children away from.

The ones that shouldn't get another dime of federal or state tax dollars until they fire all their white cops and hire only non-white ones for the next 100 years.  We'll see how the racist motherfuckers like that.
