While I do agree with your comment...

There also remains this...

...Eldridge wrote in his Facebook post that he was sorry and "should have been more sensitive as to how I discussed this matter."

He pledges to embrace diversity.

Democratic leaders will strain all credulity to adopt Eldridge's polishing of his racist plea as an adult with a badge, a gun, and the far reaching powers of a police officer....


So, a Facebook post saying he was sorry negates his past?

If only it were that easy for others to attain forgiveness for their comments and actions.

I can rob a bank.

But if I post an apology on Facebook, I'm OK?

Is that how he thinks it works?

It sounds like he was pretty successful:

The racial makeup of the city was 94.44% White, 1.12% Black or African American, 0.15% Native American, 2.08% Asian, 0.89% from other races, and 1.31% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 3.48% of the population. en.wikipedia.org

How much of the 94.44% are made up of----------- that he also bitched about?

If you look at the demographics of his county, his city has managed to stay whiter than average, despite being poorer than average.

At 94% white already... he would probably be a acurate representation of his constitutes.

@#7 ....If you look at the demographics of his county, his city has managed to stay whiter than average, despite being poorer than average. ...

Circa late 1980's and 1990's, Shelton CT was transitioning from a town with empty factories to a town with corporate office buildings. In a prior life, I commuted to Shelton each workday to work in a brand, shiny-new office building. One of many that were built in the late 1980's and 1990's.

The population diversity (or lack of it) represents the factory workers of the time.

He's both a cop and a racist. Least surprising part of the story.
