Kentucky Sheriff Shows Why We Must Fire All White Cops Now

Seriously, Bardstown?  You with the cutesy-fuck historical downtown and the 100-Best-Small-Towns award and the distilleries in a county that barred alcoholic beverage sales until 2014?

Congratulations.  You're now famous for having a sheriff who's not just racist, but criminally stupid.


Sheriff Ed Mattingly’s comments were made during a press conference on Monday, video of which was posted to YouTube by the Nelson County Gazette.

“We are glad that he is white, and we shouldn’t have to be worried about that,” Mattingly said. “We do not want any backlash or violence in this community because people have been misinformed.”

“The media has not done a very good job of informing the public, and the public is not educated on how the system actually works,” he continued. “We don’t want those type of troubles in our community.”
Embarrassing. I wonder how Nelson County's non-white residents - including the many undocumented farm workers - would characterize "troubles in our community."
