cop hired

the whatcom county sheriffs dept. in bellingham wa. has just hired the seattle cop that shot and killed a black seattle motorist in 'self defense' a few years ago.btw the a whatcom county sheriff dept. 'officer' filled a local native american man with 5 bullets 2 years ago ,which was also in self defense.well, the local 'human rights task force' ruled that it wasnt racially motivated.500 years of white man dominance apoparently is never taken into account when any black or native has an 'issue' with authorities.time to take chances and act covertly or overtly!!
