    Administrative discipline by police departments does not have constitutional protections like a criminal proceeding.

    Ask an NYPD cop about the Trial Room.

    This guy's an idiot. Everyone knows you don't put racial epithets in writing! Unless of course it's on an anonymous messageboard.

    Besides his racial slurs Barrett said he would have used pepper spray on Gates. The threat of violence alone is enough to seal the lid on this guys coffin.

    Do jungle monkeys really eat bananas or is that a myth?

    One would hope. Also, even though it is perfectly legal to be racist it doesn't fit in quite well with the police's vow to protect and serve.

    If the guy sent it from the police station or otherwise indentified himself as a policeman, I think his goose is cooked.

    If he threatened the guy, likewise, h's about to become a civilian, too.

    I'd say it's hard to believe, but what would one expect from a man who claims "banana eating jungle monkey" isn't racist? Stick a fork in him!
