Default Alec Baldwin being investigated for possible hate crime

Alec Baldwin being investigated for possible hate crime | Fox News
February 20, 2013

Apparently, Mr. Baldwin, said to be some sort of performer, has leaned so for left that his semi-fluid brains have run out of his ear.

Quote:
An NYPD rep told FOX 411 the 54-year-old actor is being investigated following an altercation he allegedly got into with a New York Post photographer.

“Our hate crimes task force is reviewing the case,” the rep said
Quote:
The story claims reporter Tara Palmeri and photographer G.N. Miller approached Baldwin outside of his East Village residence in an attempt to get a comment from the actor about reports his pregnant wife, Hilaria Thomas, is being sued.

The duo said they encountered an angry Baldwin who told Palmeri “I want you to choke to death” and fired a racial slur at Miller, who is African American.

Miller, who is a retired NYPD detective, told police the actor called him a “coon,” a “drug dealer” and a “crackhead,” according to The Post.

According to The New York Post, Palmeri gave police an audio recording of the heated moment with Baldwin.
I'm sure that our local Leftists will be condemn with great alacrity Mr. Baldwin's glaring racism. Yeah, right.

Quote:
Baldwin made other offensive comments, including telling reporter Tara Palmeri, “I want you to choke to death.” He also told Miller to “suck my d--k.”
HEY, WHAT'S THE HURRY? Alec Baldwin makes a quick getaway yesterday, dodging repoters' questions as he charges back to his East Village home after a grocery-store run.

Both comments were caught on Palmeri’s audiotape recorder.

The tape was sent to the NYPD’s forensic unit, police officials said.

The tape was also rolling when a rattled Miller returned to the reporter after being called racist slurs and recounted his shock over the incident.

“He said some foul s--t about my mom,” Miller said. “He kept calling me a name, coon.”
Of course we must be realistic. Mr. Baldwin is said to be a staunch supporter of Animal Rights, Bill Clinton, Anthropogenic Global Warming, and Barak Obama. So, obviously the Left will see him as immune from such tawdry accusations as racism. And photographic and recorded audio evidence was naturally faked by the Bildeburgs in conjunction with the Coke Brothers.

I couldn't care about his political lean.

He's a twit of the first water, which he has shown by multiple actions.

Are you trying to kill my amused gloat?

I am conflicted. While I think Baldwin is a blow hard, paparazzi and other questionable "reporters" like them tend to make stuff up or lie. Due to their provoking nature, I wonder how many of us would react to some of these actions.

I guess I'd have to know more on the story

I don't see anything that indicates he's racist. He doesn't like one black person, big whoop.

Regardless, I can't seem to find the ability to give a sh!t what any actor thinks or does outside of entertaining me in movies and shows.

When people say they aren't racist, but use every racist slur in the book when they get drunk their behavior is racist.

No. Their behavior is assholish. But unless they're saying that all people of a certain race are inferior, then they're not being racist.

They're racist if they think that whites are superior to other races and if they used racial slurs in anger.

Most racists are ass holes, I'll grant you that.

No, using racial slurs in anger isn't racist. It doesn't indicate that one thinks a race is superior or inferior to another. It just indicates that one doesn't like the person they are speaking to.

That's your opinion, rat. Mine is that people who deliberately use racial slurs in anger are racist.
