    Arrest at Walmart triggers charges of racism - Crime & courts- msnbc.com

    whose standards should be used? beligerence and disrespect of authority seem to be pretty ingrained in black culture. should we just accept a lower standard of behaviour? or should we defend standards that lead to civilized and amiable neighbourhoods?

    o please everyone does this...you split into different lines..if pals line moves faster...you hop over there...but the rules are....you dont push in behind said friend...you put your stuff in front of their stuff...and you ring it all up together....no separate purchases since you shoved in front of others...

    if she pushed peoples stuff off that was rude and if the people behind you ...object ...you may end up at the back of the line again

    So, rude behavior is not limited by race, color or creed. Who knew?

    she is charged with assaulting a police officer, and that carries a maximum sentence of 15 years. I don't think anyone expects her to get anything close to the maximum.

    why would a school teacher make such a ruckus in a checkout line, and end up striking a police officer? I can't imagine fighting with a cop, let alone for such a stupid reason. would you want her teaching your child?

    I've actually seen this very same thing play out in my local walmart. The black woman who tried to cut ahead in line was allowed to do her thing---she raised hell and loudly called everyone not black a racist--but the checker and management let her go to the head of the line. And she wasn't joining anyone. She was just in a gawd-awful hurry and didn't think she should have to wait.

    *sigh*

    This kind of behavior doesn't surprise me in the least. The black kids at my children's middle school started acting like this when Obama was elected and they flat out told the white kids that they'd "better get used to it, cuz blacks own this country now".

    And....so it seems they are right.
