If you thought that only anarchists and civil libertarians were into pirate radio, think again. At a press conference held on Sept. 16, CT State Rep. Roger Michele, and NAACP attorney Dawne Westbrook accused Sgt. Richard Valentine, a 25-year Bristol CT police veteran, with making middle-of-the-night, racist broadcasts from a radio studio in the basement of his Bristol home. The unlicensed broadcasts were billed as WNFR - "Nigger-Free Radio" - the complaint said.
Bristol Police Capt. Daniel Britt, commander of the patrol and detective divisions, was also named in the complaint. Although his role was not made public, Mr. Michele said he was told the captain spoke on at least one of the broadcasts.
According to the city’s mayor, Sgt. Valentine has apologized for the broadcasts and resigned his post. Capt. Britt has been placed on paid leave.
The public airing of the Bristol cops’ racist pirate radio station have come up at the same time that the NAACP has brought forward allegations of racial profiling by Bristol police in that city’s West End.
Bristol is a city of 60 thousand and is home to the central studios of ESPN. According to the 2000 census the city is 91.6% white, and African-Americans only make up 2.68% of the population.
Interestingly, even though the cops’ station was unlicensed, there’s been no mention of the FCC, nor any acknowledgement by city officials or the local that the cops were doing something that is considered illegal by the federal government.

yeah i hear that is true. if you go further past Bristol (some place called Terryville/Thomaston) it gets pretty backwards i hear. My cousin lives in a town called Simsbury and when my family visits all i ever see are Mercedes, BMWs, Lexus, Audis, Saabs, Ferrari, Aston Martins, its like a freakin exotic car fest everytime i go there.

People focus too much on Negroes and Jews.

Really it's just diversity in any form that's odious, starting with the Irish.
