Black cop fired after intervening on chokehold: I lost everything

Officials in Buffalo, New York, want an investigation into the firing of a black police officer who intervened when a white colleague had a suspect in a chokehold.
The incident happened in November 2006. At the time, Officer Cariol Horne had served 19 of the 20 years needed to receive her pension, a spokesperson for Horne told CNN.
But Horne was fired for intervening and did not qualify for her pension, the city said.
“The message was sent that you don’t cross that blue line and so some officers — many officers don’t,” said Horne in an interview with CNN’s Brianna Keilar.

If all black cops stood for the community against the racist cops, they would win what ever case, but when youre dumb and so insecure and afraid of white people you turn your back on your own even when you see their pain but dont realise the sane people you ignore are the force that can stand you for you, do any one remembered how the asian community stood for the chinese cop who shot and killed Akai Gurley, they were in court for him and with him, they were on the politicians neck, but the negro community are for self, as long they can get a few dollars from white people they will watch you die and say nothing, all they are worth is a dollar

But damn since 2006 and now she is saying something, this is the part many understand when you see wrong you say nothing or do nothing you are just as guilty, but when you stand up others will stand up with you, because black cops have been the enemy of the black community, they rather watched innocent black people killed by racist cops as they keep their silence, all they worry is about a pention i doubt if any one will support them i know i wouldn't, why should we support you now

Caribmama screw getting her job back she should be given her full pension. She only had one year left until she could have called it quits on her own. The cop that killed Eric Garner they put him on desk duty until they went to review the case. They could have done the same thing for her minus firing her because she did no wrong.  It would be a slap in the face to tell her she has to do that last year to get her pension. It would make no sense in putting herself back on the line with how today's world is going.

All, those white cops quitting the force, good, let a bunch of black people take their jobs, see how white people see two black cops in a police car in their neighborhood.
