MICHIGAN COP GETS FIRED FOR BEING TOO MUCH OF A GOOD OL’ BOY, AKA A MAJOR RACIST
So I didn’t think it was possible. But Dukes of Hazard is in the news yet again in the year 2022. So what now? Why??? Well, a racist cop. And I know believe me that that doesn’t seem to be too noteworthy even now either. But here it is. Michigan just fired a cop for being too much of a Good Ol’ Boy. And no, that was not his former superiors’ rationale for the firing. It was the cop’s explanation! It turns out he’s a total racist. But one of those racists who at a minimum claims really, no, I’m not a racist!
POTENTIAL BLACK HOMEBUYER SAW RACIST, GOOD OL’ BOY COLLECTION, CALLED AUTHORITIES
So what went down? Well, maybe it had a little to do with the discovery of some lamentable items in the cop’s garage. Things like what was in his fairly large collection of haute racist historical memorabilia. And, well, that included his own application join the KKK. In a frame, of course. Because that’s the kind of thing an innocent Good Ol’ Boy does, amirite? The now unemployed cop is Muskegon’s very own Charles Anderson. Anderson, you see, was brilliant enough to let a black man, one Robert Mathis, tour his house as a potential home buyer!
FIRED GOOD OL’ BOY’S DEFENSE? I’M JUST A MAJOR FAN OF DUKES OF HAZARD!
And, to be fair, this sure sounds like the kind of home every Good Ol’ Boy should have. A large, 5 bedroom house nestled within its very own 22 acres of property. Mathis, was actually ready to make an offer to buy the property! But then he saw the garage, with the extensive collection of Confederate memorabilia and other items. As you might imagine, Mathis was somewhat taken aback knowing this cop was on the job, possibly abusing his mis-abused understanding of what a Good Ol’ Boy was, according to the Dukes of Hazard. And yes! At last! Why are we talking about the Dukes of Hazard?
Because Good Ol’ Boy former cop Anderson told investigators that he had that collection just because he was a fan of the dated TV show. And loved going to Hazard fair’s with like-minded folks. You know, contemporary confederates who don’t look too good when today’s light illuminates them?
