I have been a long time reader of the WP and I am so sick of the Racism and racist remarks these cowards like wjc1va post constantly behind the computer. Funny how the reader has nothing to say about the Story about the color or Nationality of the Police Officer in Rockville that was arrested for DUI in the Town's own MARKED Police car. Wjc!va how about this the next time you have something racist to say about a person's color, Nationality or want to stereotype them, do it to their face and not continue to be the a coward like so many of you racists are in this area!

Whether you agree with wjc1va's opinions really isn't relevant. He/she is entitled to his/her opinion and is free to express it.
It appears they were exactly correct in their assumptions no matter how racist their opinion is. It isn't their fault they were right.
Quite honestly, who cares? Both this guy and the police officer were arrested and face the same judicial system.
There's trash of every race...which is probably why the Post goes to great lengths not to use it in descriptions of suspects.

The "Grandad Bandit" was a white old man who robbed a lot of banks, so what's the reason for racist remarks when it comes to this guy above? ALL COLORS ROB BANKS!
