we should have a "villian" tag. Though the sad tag is perfect here.

What I don't get is why (in the last paragraph) the director of communications (I think for the D.C. firefighters) introduces the fact that D.C. has a lot of minorities. I guess her point is that it has nothing to do with it, but then why bring it up at all?

Her point is that minorities tend to make up the largest percentage of criminals, hence mentioning that fact lends credence to the story. In other words, she's not afraid of the skirt-raising "we all be equal" liberal press.

Facts are facts. Hiding them doesn't make them go away. Maybe it's high time we start calling things the way they really are. That way, we won't envelope ourselves in that huge shroud of delusion that was yanked away so abruptly on September 11th.

Will we ever learn?

By the way, D.C. is a rat hole anyway. Thugs governing thugs in that city. They should build a fence around it.

Maybe they were smoking crack with the Mayor before they got the call for work.

I don't think the racial implication was necessary. People are opportunitsts in all colors. I probably would have tried to nab a gas mask in the confusion. I can admit that and I am as white as they come.

"Steal" is such a strong word.

"It [is] just unfortunate that it shows up in a department that has more minorities in the region. Let's be sensitive to that," Bass said. "We don't want to cast any aspersions on them because of a bad apple, or two or three, when that could happen anywhere."
Tell you what - you quit bringing up you're [black/asian/arab/white/pink/fuschia] whatever - and using it as a crutch and I will [quit trying to push you in front of a bus (joke, guys)/quit caring that you are black/asian/arab/white/pink/fuschia]

$15,000 for some goggles. For that much they better be x-ray specs.

Umm..we've had a new mayor for like 10 years dumb ass.

DC has had a budget surplus for the last 2 years.

The fire department is not getting new equipment because the public safety office has to spend all their money policing dumb ass hippies who want to protest things they dont understand.

I don't get that last statement either, of course the DC fire department has minorities in it, DC is majority Black!

What she was doing is called playing the "race card". Its like when a black man gets pulled over for speeding...even if he was doing 100mph in a school zone...he immediatly and furiously jumps out of his car and says he was racially profiled and threatens to call johnny cochran.

In other words...she is saying that wouldn't have been accused of stealing them if they were not black and the accusers should be ashamed of themselves....

what a load of FARKING DUNG

Learn what? That the niggaz did it coz they are all thieves?
Nice one Pigsquealer.

I figure that a firefighter is a firefighter wherever he is. It's like stealing from your brother - It's not really "stealing". Its not like its for personal gain or anything. They are taking the equipment so that they can better save lives. I dont think that's a crime.

anyway - they were sprung so they should give it all back
no harm - no foul
