Officer alleges police racism

Re: Front page story on the herald I can't comment on the specifics, because I wasn't there, and I doubt you were either. However, this woman claims that there is "systemic racism" in the HPD. If this was the case, she would never have been accepted

I can't comment on the specifics, because I wasn't there, and I doubt you were either.

However, this woman claims that there is "systemic racism" in the HPD. If this was the case, she would never have been accepted in the first place, and she certainly wouldn't have been promoted to sergeant.

I'm not saying her complaints are unfounded, because we don't know. Nor am I saying the force doesn't have issues. What I am saying is the force is not plagued with racism, because if that was the case, she wouldn't be where she is today.
