Police Department Hate Hoax in Bridgeport, Connecticut

The epidemic of hate hoaxes is not limited to college campuses. Not even police departments are immune:

Nine months after a racist letter was circulated in the Bridgeport Police Department, two investigations have found what authorities say was a conspiracy to falsely portray racial hatred in the department.

A black former officer, who claimed to be a target of the letter, was arrested Wednesday and the head of the police training academy and president of a minority police organization was placed on paid leave.

Clive Higgins, who was cleared by a federal jury earlier this year of police brutality charges despite a video showing him stomping a prone suspect in Beardsley Park in 2011, surrendered at State Police Troop I in Bethany on Wednesday morning. He was charged with second-degree falsely reporting an incident, a misdemeanor, and released on a promise to appear in court pending arraignment in state Superior Court on Dec. 16.

The victim he stomped is Hispanic. Who knows, maybe there really is racism in the Bridgeport Police Department police department — or was until Higgins resigned in July.

The racist letter was typed on city letterhead and distributed through the Police Department and began and ended with “White Power,” a term coined by the Ku Klux Klan and the American Nazi Party in the late 1960s and ’70s. It complained that Higgins didn’t belong in the Police Department.

It went on to make negative comments about African-American officers.

Immediately the NAACP was on the case like white on rice, I mean, like black on black beans. But when it predictably came to light that it was a hoax like almost all cases of racism against blacks, the social justice warriors became sheepish. Bleats George Mintz, head of the local chapter,

“At this point, we only know what has been published in the newspaper.”

Here’s what has been published:

On Feb. 9, Higgins claimed he found the letter in his mailbox. He subsequently filed a police report stating that after the discovery he was “In fear for his life,” and immediately contacted Blackwell.

His superior Lt. Lonnie Blackwell is head of the police training academy and president of the Bridgeport Guardians, a black officers’ organization. Now Higgins says that Blackwell ordered him to write the letter “to bring attention to the department with respect to ongoing racial complaints.” That is, to create phony evidence in support of politically motivated complaints. Bridgeport is over 30% black — i.e., past the tipping point.

Like most hate hoaxers, Higgins does not appear to be among the sharpest knives in the drawer:

State police later met with Higgins, according to the arrest warrant affidavit, and pointed out that minutes before he claimed he found the hate letter he is seen on surveillance video typing out a letter on a department computer, printing it out and then making copies.

The letter he is seen typing appears to be the same letter he claims he found, the affidavit states.

“Higgins looked at the photographs and began rubbing and shaking his head. Higgins then admitted that it was in fact the hate letter he claimed to have found in his mailbox,” the affidavit states.

Please welcome Clive Higgins and Lonnie Blackwell to the Hate Hoax List.

    I’ve never been a racist, but that is changing. Slowly but surely. It is a horrible feeling, but it’s becoming a matter of self defense.

  • whotothewhat

    Maybe we should start a fund to build a wall so we can have these hate hoaxers names forever on display.

  • whotothewhat

    I to feel the same way sometimes, but I try not look at it so much as a racist thing though, more like I support my team. If I was a Green Bay Packer and I was playing the Bears on the field I would want to crush them, off the field I pay them no mind.

    Sharp as a bowling ball this one.

  • cecil11

    There’s no need to be a ‘racist’—whatever you imagine that to be.

    Just value race, understand its importance, and discriminate on that basis as appropriate.

    Whites have value, their race has value, everything follows from this basis truth.

  • Okaaay… He had a good job, got acquitted of a felony and was still working… and he goes and pulls this bit of butt-pluggery! Guess you don’t have to pass an IQ test to be a cop in Bridgeport!

  • MAS

    Like most departments today the IQ test is only required if one is a European descended low melanin content male. All others get bonus points for melanin and estrogen.

  • MAS

    Well put! Of course always remember a pick up game could start at any time and anywhere.

  • Lou Hodges

    Don’t be a racial stereotype or nothing. I wouldn’t even give him a lift to work. He looks nuts.

  • Lou Hodges

    Neither was I. It’s a reality. I always supported civil rights but apparently it was never appreciated. I stopped socializing with Blacks and I had some real close friends. They started in with the.same racist crap.

  • Lou Hodges

    Thanks for whatever that was. This is earth.

  • Dianne

    lol!

  • DJ

    Excellent advice, cecil.
    .
    The term “racist” (and all the dynamics that surround it) must be shit-canned stat. The Cultural Marxists made up the rules WRT racism thus they win at that game every time. I say that because, fundamentally, the official rules assert that racism is the worst sin a person can engage in, which is followed by the clincher: only whites can be racists.
    .
    BTW, it was Trotsky that coined the term racism. He invented it to use as a weapon against his ideological enemies.

  • TheChaoticStorm

    Well, his letter did get one thing right. He doesn’t belong in the police department.

    What a joke.

  • “I’ve never been a racist…”

    Maybe you have. It would depend on who you ask. If you’ve ever not deferred to a colored, or given them spare change, or not smiled at one of them, then you’re a racist. According to them and to a lot of Whites you’re a racist. Just by expecting others to support themselves, or at least try, yeah, you’re a racist.

  • nikbo40 .

    What racist, hypocritical, phoney, angry, disgusting people.

  • NotKennedy

    At least he doesn’t look like an ignorant, hateful SOB!

    Maybe Obama is trying to dilute the ugliness of hyphenated Americans by bringing in willful Islamists. After all, who looks at a neighborhood of Syrians and says, “there goes the neighborhood”?

    It’s gotta suck when terrorists have more credibility than BlackLivesMatter. Yet, for all of that, we see how BlackLivesMatter, played out in living color. Mmm, mmm, mmm.

    Fundamental change and Reverend Wright’s roosters. Satan must be jealous.

  • grayjohn

    Well yes, but they wouldn’t know a real racist until they were dangling from a tree.

  • grayjohn

    Nice words, but meaningless in this climate of bullshit.

  • grayjohn

    I never gave a damn what color anyone was until people of color started telling me what a racist piece of shit I am for being Caucasian. If it’s ok for them to racist, then it’s ok for me too. All I need now is a jigabotomy and I’ll be just like them.
