The bigger problem is the lack of respect "some" in the black community show towards anyone in a position of authority. Almost all of the incidents in the news lately would have never happened if the citizens involved would have listened to the direction of the law enforcement officials. Pretty simple concept, doesn't involve any special police training, common sense.

McFall and Bill Clinton would have both gotten along perfectly. It's all in the definition of words that counts. "I thought I was being transparent" and geez I guess it depends on your definition of transparency. Problem was, she didn't meet her bosses definition of transparency and that's the one that counted.

Maybe the article should read "Black officers recall discrimination against white officers on the Youngstown force." If you were black in this particular era, you were hired on the force because of federal decree and you were promoted because of federal decree even if you didn't get a passing grade on the civil service exams. This set in motion the promotion of blacks further up the ranks in the department, allowing the position of Chief of Police to be filled by blacks.

Why no story on the discrimination that white officers faced when affirmative action pressured the police and fire departments in the eighties? Blacks being promoted that hadn't passed a civil service test and then given positions of authority over white officers that passed these tests but not promoted was a grand time to be a white officer or white fireman during this time.

Don't know if she was smart enough to talk with an Attorney. She does have 4 babies and no baby daddy so my guess would be NO.

Maybe a couple of signs reading 'stay the hell off the street unless you have a license plate attached to your butt' are needed in that particular school zone.
