When one holds such positions and/or serve in an elected office and makes ignant comments, they should just quit. There is no excuse and I have no sympathy for their consequences. You see this is very unprofessional and things like this should not happen on or off the record. When one holds such positions and/or serve in an elected office and makes ignant comments, they are always on record. C. Dancy II – DCN Publisher
The Boston police officer who sent a mass e-mail in which he compared Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. to a "banana-eating jungle monkey" has apologized, saying he’s not a racist.
Officer Justin Barrett, 36, told a Boston television station Wednesday night that he was sorry about the e-mail, a copy of which he also sent to The Boston Globe. He repeated his apology Thursday night on CNN’s "Larry King Live." (CNN)
