stupid cracker says what?

NOPD Suspends Racist Cop for Proving It With Invite to ‘Join Trayvon Martin in Hell’

Not intended to be a factual portrait of Jason GiroirHi, racist New Orleans cop? The Fifth Amendment called and wanted to remind you of your right to not incriminate yourself by posting comments, on Facebook, under your name, while on desk duty for your role in another shooting, about Trayvon Martin being “in Hell,” YOU STUPID FUCKING RACIST CRACKER.

“Act like a Thug Die like one,” brilliant and sensitive and racially transcendent New Orleans copper Jason Giroir wrote on his Facebook wall, because of brilliance. Take it away, local New Orleand TV news!

Jason Giroir’s “thug” comment sparked a strong reaction from another commenter, Eddie Johnson, in the story. Johnson tells Giroir: “How the hell you know how he acted? That boy went to school, talked to his girl friend and it was raining so he had his hood over his head… OH YEA He’s Black so he’s automatically a Thug huh? Low down racist always show their true colors.”

Several hours later, Jason Giroir responded to Johnson: “Eddie come on down to our town with a ‘Hoodie’ and you can join Martin in HELL and talk about your racist stories!:-P”

We particularly like the sticking-out-tongue smiley, for sauciness!

Giroir was on desk duty while his role in a Driving While Black stop is investigated; that stop left one young black man dead and several cops injured. And now he is suspended and will probably be fired. Why won’t The Man leave Jason Giroir alooooooone? [WWLTV, via Wonkette operative “LimeyLizzie”]

    He was just a thirsty kid with a sweet tooth who got murdered for being where he wasn't wanted, nothing more.

    • vodkamuppet

      You have it all wrong! It was his little brother that has a sweet tooth. Another typical liberal getting the facts wrong.

      • Barb

        You left out that I am "afraid of Sarah Palin" Isn't that how all "typical liberal" statements start?

        • vodkamuppet

          Yes. I am terrified of Sarah Palin. Her political career makes me piss all over everything because Im laughing so much but her fans really freak me the hell out.

          • Barb

            I like how her fans say that she is "the only one who can….(insert anything here)" With 300 million people in this country I would like to think that we could find someone else who can (insert anything here) Seriously? The ONLY one?

    • Biff

      "murdered for being where he wasn't wanted"
      Anywhere in the dirty south, you mean?

    • HippieEsq

      In New Orleans he would have had the additional dignity of being shot by a guy with a badge.

  • http://ifthethunderdontgetya.blogspot.com/ ifthethunderdontgetya

    Yep, this is exactly the sort of mastermind-empath we need armed with a badge and a gun.

      Alaska Militiamen also too:

      Jason Standish That's bs zimmerman isn't white f the black panthers and don't be fooled lamestream media isn't so reputable. Even the kids own father said after he listened to the recording it's Zimmermans voice that was heard not the suns. Zimmerman is not guilty. They are about to pass the same type of hold ur ground law here. And I'm all for it. I pack everywhere and I guarantee I will be the last person you want to rob.

      Jason Standish Doesn't matter Zimmerman has a witness unless it was premeditated then there's no case to this. Self defense, end of story. This racial bullshit and Obama saying if he had a son it would look like trayvon is a publicity stunt. And to get the black panthers all riled up psh screw them over righteous illogical bunch of whiners they are worse than kkk with even more hate built inside

      Jason Standish The media is focusing on crap, it's not fact, it's to dramatize the situation to gain audience. I investigate and research foreign news, local news, history of news, an all sorts of shit along with history. Whatever your news is telling you is a farce and biased. Trust me

      Jason Standish Tragic or not it will not go that way in court is my point. And what gets me is this is being followed so closely it resembles the same kind of tactic in France with the supposed al Qaeda member that killed the three Jewish kids and a rabbi and the hopeful skarzy president is further clamping down on ppls freedoms. Wake up this happens every day in the USA

      Jason Standish Haha wow u know that is edited right elana? Wiki leaks will tell the story soon my colleagues are working on exposing the truth

        I bet not that many people can just call up a brand name of sheets from their memory banks. I'm impressed.

        Fuck, fuck, fuck.

        I used to work as a photo-journalist for one of the UK's national newspapers, where the small-minded editors (no doubt acting on behalf of the even smaller minded owners), impressed on us employees, the class divisions and superiority of their readers.

        Readers of other — competing — newspapers were little better than trailer trash.

        If it wasn't the wire services doing the racist thing, it would be the editors, shaping the language of the captions to fit their readers intellect and prejudices.

        It's done everywhere, in Europe and here in the US. The end.

      That shameful incident, like the Trayvon Martin case, would seem to be one of those moments where many Americans might suddenly realize that, holy crap, America isn't what I think it is.

        That would require abandoning a sense of American Exceptionalism and taking a good long hard look at ourselves, however.

    Isn't the phrase "racist cop" kind of redundant?

    The NOPD has a policy on Internet posts, adopted several years ago, which states:

    “Employees shall not post any material on the Internet … that … embarrasses , humiliates, discredits, or harms the operation and reputation of the police department or any of its members.”

    Well, given that the NOPD's reputation is in the gutter anyway, he might not have broken that.

        "White Hispanic" is an invented term? Listen up, sick fucks, you ever seen people from Spain? Or Puerto Rico? Hell, even my sister-in-law, who is Mexican-American, looks whiter than me! Just cuz you're Hispanic doesn't mean you are brown.

      They were waiting for Zimmerman to take the lead and throw out some smear against Martin, like maybe he smoked a doob or two in his day. Yea, that marijuana is a known gateway drug to all kinds of violence.

            Oh shit, I actually own the DVD of Reefer Madness. We watch it on Halloween because the Ed Wood films werent good enough for background noise at a Halloween party.

            It's a thing for non-Christians to do for Satan when they need a day to do something really extra badass for Satan. Traditional costumes include nurses, slutty nurses, really really slutty nurses, cheerleaders and that Lord of the Rings guy. Lord of the Rings guy is always sweating.

            I have no idea what Nazguls are, are you the sweaty guy at the party?

    • An_Outhouse

      It would have taken less time but his sweat covered fat nubs kept slipping off the keyboard.

  • Guppy

    Between the pay and the benefits, being overly-eager to be issued a gun is about the only reason one would want to be a cop nowadays anyway.

    Don't worry, it can only get worse.

    • Biff

      Most of the cops I've known are strictly in it for the retirement, no sense of duty whatsoever. Being a left-coaster though, most of them haven't been presented the opportunity to display such hatred outwardly, at least.

    • Preferred Customer

      So, I had this witticism all drafted that bemoaned the fact that Stand Your Ground has taken even THAT advantage away from the police, and that any _______-happy dipshit can just go out, buy a gun, and start cold executing people in the street without even NEEDING a badge, and why are the lamestream media not covering that?

      It was funny, sort of, but of course since I used the word for the small lever that activates a pistol it was auto-deleted.

      Which, really? Why can't we talk about handgun components here? All Sarah Palin has to do to silence us is have a few more kids, maybe named Health Care, Obama, Romney and Santorum.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    Giroir? Sounds kinda, I dunno, French, to me. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

      (yes, I know the literal translation would be "chapeau du dul"…)

  • Lucidamente1

    Giroir's response is part of his Stand Your Ground on Facebook policy.

  • FakaktaSouth

    “Eddie come on down to our town with a ‘Hoodie’ and you can join Martin in HELL"

    Oh man, I bet this is the same NO cop that stole my boyfriend's Goofy (like Mickey Mouse) baseball hat off his head when we were in the Quarter in 1992 – he's not racist, he just doesn't like people with things on their heads.

    This really happened, and if you have ever been to New Orleans and been around one their NOPD ways, you can KNOW we are grateful this is all that was taken. The cop just reached down (Boyfriend was sitting on the curb drunk) and took it off his head, and kept walking. It was one of the most surreal things I have ever seen.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      Good thing the cop didn't have any pepper spray.

      • FakaktaSouth

        Shit at least I EXPECT to be sprayed or tazed by a cop, but not ROBBED for Christ sake. New Orleans is so weird. I do love it.

      More than likely the cop was drunk too; didn't really know what he was doing.

    • CthuNHu

      Myspace, apparently:

      At the time of the shooting, Giroir's public Myspace profile also featured comments that suggested he sometimes bends rules in his job. The profile read:

      "Hello, my name is Jason C. Giroir. I have been a New Orleans police officer for almost 10 years. I enjoy my job because I like to make a positive impact in life. Sometimes that means not doing everything by the book. Everyone who knows me understands what I mean."

      He goes on to talk about his family, calling them the strength and motivation in his life.

      Under the category for occupation, he listed his job as "Punisher."

      Also? Fuck him and fuck his equally despicable wife. May those vile lumps of excrement waste away their years in confined quarters with large, deranged, swarthy and unforgiving cellmates. That is all.

      That would be Whitey's Trayvon moment, call to action.

      Obama's election was bad enough (according to them,) Obamacare, 57 States, Corpsemen, Special Olympics bowling, but saying "Get Whitey," would have them in white hoodies on the streets expressing their 1st Amendment Rights with a 2nd Amendment remedy.

      As someone else here noted, these racist goobers are outing themselves all over the country, thanks in large part to the Fucks Gnus blowhards, who make them think it's OK because everybody else on Planet Ailes feels the same way.

      Maybe, in the long run, it will be good to know who these cretins are — especially the ones who can be voted out of office or dismissed from public jobs. In the short term, the close association of these characters with the GOP can only help the Dems in November … so let's hear from more of them, as loud and revolting as they want to be.

    We sat by the rivers of Louisiana and wept. But who are the daughters of this city? Whose infants are being dashed against the rocks?

    People who love America with an unquestioning love aren't paying attention.

    The bigger news is that there are racist cops. Who knew?

      Just have to say that while I appreciate the sensitivity to racism in some areas of Europe, I find their "incitement" laws bizarre and worrisome.

    Here is the greatest piece of wisdom ever handed down to me: "There is no situation on earth that is so bad that a cop can't make it worse." Engrave it in your memory, teach it to your children.

      I've said that, or some variation of that, for nigh on 50 years. It has served me well.

      Here's a wicked irony. My eleven year old daughter heard about Martin's murder and immediately expressed outrage and sadness. "He was just a kid" she said, in heart-wrenching solidarity with Trayvon. So I'm trying to help her make sense of it all and I'm saying to her that this guy who shot Martin was just a cop wanna-be. Some gun-loving nut who managed to sneak onto a neighborhood watch. "But" I said "a real cop would never have gone for his gun so quickly. This wouldn't have happened if it were a real professional cop." Which of course I have to say because I don't want my kids to think that the world is a nuthouse run by the inmates. But really…

    Slightly OT: I spent this weekend with my skullf*cking parents and something has been bothering me. When referring to African Americans my mom still sometimes says negro, which drives me crazy. But even when she doesn't she will usually refer to "the blacks" which still seems vaguely racist to me. I can't quite figure out how to explain to her why this bothers me, at least not in a way that she will understand. She also refers to Asians as "orientals" and it bothers me in kind of the same way, especially when we are at a Chinese restaurant.

    • proudgrampa

      Don't know how old your mom is, but my 97-year old mother keeps referring to them as "nig-ros."

      It is what it is. And at 97, no one's gonna change…

    • George Spelvin

      I don't know how old your mom is, but I'm 64, and when I was growing up, "Negro" was a polite term. When I was in college, "Black" was preferred by many, and certainly outlasted "Afro-American". I'll admit that my first tendency is still to use "Black", instead of "African-American", because that's what I learned during the most impressionable period of my life.

      It matters less what words you use than how you use them. (With the exception of a few really charged words, of course). I'd be concerned about "the blacks" because it implies that "they" are all the same. I don't know if that is racist, but it's certainly parochial. But really, what is important is how your skullf*cking folks behave, not what words they use.

      Also, too, regarding "oriental" versus "Asian": Asia is a really big geographic area, formerly known as "the Orient". Most of the people I've known who came from, or were descended from, that super-continent would prefer to be referred to (if it is unavoidable) by their nationality — e.g., Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Thai, Malay, Vietnamese, Indian, Mongolian, Indonesian, etc. "Asian" is just as annoyingly generic as "oriental".

    • Negropolis

      Try this.

      "The blacks" or "blacks" is dehumanizing; it turns an entire people into an object. "Black" by itself gives the person or people you are talking about individual indentity. "Black people" is even better, because it recognizes shared humanity. I've always found it kind of odd and bothering, too, because we generally tend to talk about "white people" and "white folks" in the black community, qualifying the race/ethnicity with a human identity even when the talk is negative.

      It's okay, my grandmother still uses the term "wetback".

    I applaud Rebecca for her succinct analysis of this soon-to-be former NOLA law enforcement officer: "YOU STUPID FUCKING RACIST CRACKER."

    Even if he loses his position with NOPD, he'll most likely get hired by some smaller Parish because he has a state law enforcement commission. Worse is that many of the state law enforcement commissions have reciprocity agreements so he can move to another state and transfer his commission and certifications.

      Dear Chalmette, Louisiana: If you give this STUPID FUCKING RACIST CRACKER a job in security or law enforcement (or pretty much anything with more prestige than cleaning out septic tanks with his bare hands), the moratorium on jokes about Chalmette since Katrina will be OFF.

    It's kind of too bad, but also a relief, that there are no more GOP debates. You know there would have been an applause line or two in the Trayvon business.

    Well of course. White men are always the real victims – didn't that last story about the poor priests being forced to use federal money for what it was intended for, instead of what the poor priests wanted to use it for, teach you anything?

    The ugliness of the right wing blogosphere regarding the murder of this kid has been beyond belief. Essentially they want to clear the way to being able to shoot any black people on sight without cause or recriminations. It's apparently the true Conservative American way.

    The NOPD just experienced a vast improvement:

    "Jason Giroir resigned one day after he was suspended without pay Monday after admitting he made the comments and shortly after Public Integrity Bureau Chief Arlinda Westbrook notified him that allegations of misconduct against him had been sustained."

    He is now a neighborhood watch volunteer.
