..."They were black," Solberg said. "This is not a racial thing to say that black people are unusual in Georgetown. This is a fact of life.
About 400 people crowded into a church in Georgetown on Monday night to discuss the Senitt killing. Solberg, the commander of the 2nd Police District, was addressing that forum when he made his remarks about race. Senitt was white, and the suspects in the case are black.
When he made the comment, Solberg was telling the crowd to report suspicious-looking people to police when they see them in the neighborhood. He talked about the suspects in the Senitt killing and described one as a "chubby, stocky guy" and one as a 15-year-old. He said at 2 a.m. they "are going to stand out" in the area...
...Ramsey(DC police chief) said yesterday that Solberg is "a good man, not a racist or anything like that." Ramsey said he opened the investigation because "public trust is not something we can afford to lose." He reassigned Solberg to the police department's security services section pending the outcome of the investigation...

Fact of life my ass Inspector Solberg, Should I not give rides to black people because its a fact of life? NO. I go in to neighborhoods your own cops don't touch without drawing their service guns and all I have is a stupid ass baseball bat! "Are you fucking crazy Mad Cabbie? You are doing a suicide mission, don't try to be a hero Mad!" No, I am not trying to be a hero, its called "doing the right thing" By making a foolish comment like that to impress a white audience, how does the hard working black community who live in high crime areas trust the police to help them solve the crime problem while being generalized as criminals themselves.
I am not in to political correctness at all, but as a professional law enforcement officer, he is out of touch on how effectively protecting the community from these animals who butchered Mr. Senitt. One of my best friends since high school who is white, is a Montgomery county police officer and we discussed about the situation and he was explaining to me that those kind of comments could cripple the efforts of those police officers who want to go out there and make a difference in the community and I believe he is right on the money.
Let me protect my ass a little bit here, I am not saying that Inspector Solberg is a racist at all, I don't know that, but since I am a dumm ass cab driver, my reading comprehension might have been poor when I read the Washington Post article.
So Chief Ramsey, let me define what Inspector Solberg's comment for you the way I understood it : "Watch out for those niggers who hang around in Georgetown just to have a good time, watch out for those niggers who attend Georgetown University, watch out for those niggers who are bartenders, waiters, cooks and parking lot attendants, watch out for those well to do niggers who live in Georgetown walking their dogs, watch out for those niggers holding hands with white chicks, watch out for those nigger cops even though they are my guys and protecting the community they are not to be trusted, watch out for those cab drivers most of them are sand niggers, and talking about cab drivers, watch out for this ugly tall Mad Cabbie guy, he is a double trouble, he is half nigger and half Nazi besides I don't like his stupid ass blog."
