RALEIGH, N.C. -- A police officer has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges for pulling over Hispanic drivers and stealing their money.He was nailed after stealing from an undercover police officer. Perhaps he should go into the witness protection program, relocate to Phoenix and work for Mayor Gordon (who's a Democrat, by the way). He seems to have the racial discrimination thing down to a science and the Valley is salivating at a chance to practice the technique.
Former Washington police officer Steven Ray Hilsinger had served as a patrol officer for about a year before his arrest in September following an investigation by the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office and the State Bureau of Investigation.
Under increasing pressure to take a stronger stand on immigration issues, Mayor Phil Gordon announced Monday that he would seek to end a controversial police immigration-enforcement policy.I'm so glad I don't live north of the Gila anymore.
Operations Order 1.4 prevents city police in most cases from asking about a person's immigration status. Gordon said Monday that he could no longer support the 20-year-old policy.
