White Police Officer Threatens Black Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin - Race, Color and Politics

Cop says he wants to 'beat' Atlanta mayor with bat.

More Post-Racial bigotry, this coming out of Atlanta, Georgia where a white police officer has threatened the Mayor of Atlanta saying: "I want to beat her [Mayor Shirley Franklin] in the head with a baseball bat sometimes when I think about it," Sgt. Scott Kreher said into a microphone earlier this month in an apparent off-hand remark during a presentation he was giving to the council. Within days, the 17-year department veteran was suspended.

As reported by CNN, Kreher said the "it" that made him want to club the mayor was that, despite repeated complaints, the police union contends the city is not honoring workers' compensation claims for cops whose careers ended when they were seriously injured on the job.

Franklin, one of the nation's high-profile mayors, told CNN on Tuesday that the officers' complaints are a "separate issue" from Kreher's comments.
