    I was surprised to hear and see Carol, the CNN correspondent's response when her guest, a female attorney(I believe)advise that young women share in the responsibility in their safety by not putting themselves at risk with being intoxicated and or under the influence of drugs. Why is it hard to understand that concept? I too am a woman and it makes sense to me not to put yourself at risk. No, predators should not impose themselves on others BUT we know that they do. That's why their actions are criminal! So all young women, don't go to the parties and get sloppy drunk!! Save that for the privacy of your home.

    I am a heating and cooling contractor and have done jobs for police officers and have to say they are some of the most racist people I have ever come into contact with. the off duty officers think is funny and entertaining to be extra racist like it makes them more of a man. I must say I'm a little racist to the certain situation but the racism that was presented to me by the officers was very disgusting. officers dealing with the worst of the black population have the worst impression of blacks because what they see on emergency calls no matter what that officer says he is not white and does not hear what the whiet officers think because of the repercussions that it may have.

    Police Officers have to know their actions are intimidating:

    And this is their decision... but it doesn't have to be.

    I hate to say but there are some African-Americans that I understand or see reality better than others . He definitely comes from out there upbringing. Some of these black cops are probably looked down upon when really they're doing the right thing.

    American-africans are also people like everybody else. They can be good or bad like you. Race doesn't matter.
