Casselberry, Florida police officer Matthew Blunt was suspended for one, 10-hour shift without pay after sending an image of Fuko from Clannad with the message "Aw, sh*t n****" from his personal phone to his supervisor Kristine Pamatian's department-paid cell phone. Blunt was celebrating his win of US$32 in the lottery.

LOL. That sucks that he got in trouble, but why can't people take a joke? It is offensive, yes, but it wasn't doing harm.

Lol...

Fucking stupid...

I was going to go into an in-depth explanation as to why people need to stop being so politically correct and humorless..

but i think it speaks for itself...

I guess because im from the Bahamas where white people even say "whats good my nigga" and black people say it to white people and so on i think differently...

So let me get this straight...

Cop sends funny text but since people are butthurt easily he gets suspended WITHOUT pay for a shift.

Okay...

Cop shoots a kid prematurely or screws up badly in a similar fashion and gets put on PAID administrative leave.

Good ol Murica' right?

He was suspended 1 ten hour shift. Seems reasonable to me.

"We're not trying to take your rights or livelihood away for disagreeing with us, honest!"


Modern liberalism, folks.

Its gotten to where all a troll has to do is say what those people actually believe to look ludicrous.

It might have come from a personal phone but it went to a department paid phone.


One unpaid 10 hour shift is a small price to pay for the possible consequences of it getting out there.

The police have to be especially careful these days, or at least they should be, to not show any signs of racism. Anyone who thinks this is going overboard must not realize how bad things have gotten between police and the minority communities in the US. While I believe both sides need to fix it together the police still need to avoid this kind of stuff like the plague right now till things calm down more. People have no common sense and are ready to riot over anything they can find to justify it even a little.
