Mass. cop punished for racial slur at Crawford

LEOMINSTER, Mass. (AP) -- A Massachusetts police officer was put on paid leave Wednesday after an internal investigation found that he directed a racial slur at Boston Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford.

Officer John Perrault was suspended pending a disciplinary hearing scheduled for next week at which he could face more severe punishment, and could even be fired, Leominster (LEH'-min-stuhr) Mayor Dean Mazzarella and Police Chief Robert Healey said.

Perreault engaged in conduct unbecoming an officer, according to the chief and mayor.
The officer, who is white, was placed on desk duty after the July 5 incident. He was described as a veteran officer with no prior disciplinary problems.

He was off duty and attending a minor league game in Manchester, N.H.
Witnesses said a heckling fan called Crawford, who is black, a "monday" before a game between the New Hampshire Fisher Cats and Portland Sea Dogs. Crawford said he interpreted the word as a racial slur.

The word can be used as a derogatory term for blacks, and is often associated with Mondays being one of the least-liked days of the week.

Crawford was playing for the Double-A Sea Dogs while rehabilitating a wrist injury.

Crawford alerted stadium officials to the remark, and team management apologized.

Leominster police reached out to Crawford as part of their investigation but did not talk to him, Mazzarella said.

The mayor and chief also issued an apology to Crawford.

Crawford returned to action for the Red Sox on Monday night, in a 5-1 win over the Chicago White Sox.
OK, that one highlighted quote made me laugh hysterically for some reason. They couldn't even commit to it being the least-liked. :haha7:

Even if he did say it I hope that whoever made the accusation has him recorded saying those things. There seems to be more to the story than is reported.

If he's off-duty (and I'm assuming out of uniform) what's the problem? And I would think it's a compliment to be compared to a Monday..

In his world, would a black guy grieving the death of Blair Kiel be referred to as "Monday mourning quarterback"?
If a shwoogie looks at him and turns around and pulls his pants down revealing his buttocks, is it a "New Moon on Monday"?

Umm this fella needs him one of those there jew loyahs.


The Phelps nitwits are all employees of the State of KS, and when their nonsense started getting in the news 10 years ago, it came down from on high that their first amendment rights trumped any code of conduct issues when it came to behavior off the job.
