Describing Black People As Animals!

A Philadelphia police has been placed on desk duty after making disparaging comments regarding the residents in the district that he serves. William Thrasher who is white made some of the following comments to a Temple University student who was riding with him during a ride along on January 30th. Below are some of the comments published in an article supplied by the Philadelphia Daily News:

"don't care about each other. . . . They'll shoot each other for drugs, for money, for bull----. All they care about is their reputation. They want to look tough."

"These people are f------ disgusting," he told McDonald. "It's like they're animals."

To be fair to the officer, who is 24 years old, he did state within the article that he isn't racist, but comments as hateful as the one's he's being quoted as saying if true, probably disqualify him from being able to serve all people.
