Justin Barrett, the officer in Boston who wrote a racist email calling Harvard professor Gates a “banana eating jungle monkey” is suing the city because he was suspended (with pay).

 

He claims his civil rights were violated.

 

Here is the funny (or not so funny part) from his lawyer “The choice of words were poor; but they weren’t meant to characterize professor Gates as a banana-eating jungle monkey.  They were meant in a response to behavior and characterizing the behavior. Not the person as a whole.”

 

Barrett sent a mass email to Boston police officers and the Boston Globe. The jungle monkey phrase appeared 4 times in the email.

 

But he claims he is not a racist.

 

The Boston Police Commissioner, Edward Davis said that all of Barrett’s arrests will be reviewed for racial bias.

Is this threat for real?

The Franklin Park Zoo in Boston claims that it will have to close down both the Franklin Zoo and the Stone Zoo in Stoneham within six months if additional funds are not provided. Currently they are funded by the State of Massachusetts, private donations and money raised from attractions.

 

It further stated that it will attempt to find a home for all its animals but up to 20% may not be placed and may have to be euthanized.

 

I can’t believe that they can not find homes for all their animals in other zoos in the US, Canada and elsewhere.

 

Are they seriously talking about killing perfectly healthy animals because they can’t place them? or is this just a threat to raise money and keep the zoos open?
