Moose recalls how he exploded when he couldn't get anyone to wait on him at a Nordstrom's shoe store in Oregon. (He should visit my J.C. Penney's.) "I saw other customers get waited on. I saw they were white. I saw the salespeople were white. I was the only black guy there." He shouted at the "honkies" and stormed out of the store. A few years later, he became completely unhinged while waiting in line at the Portland city employees' credit union. The woman behind the counter was white. "I just went off. I started yelling at this white woman working the counter, and this white guy she was waiting on, about how long I'd been waiting and how p--sed off I was that they were making a black man wait in line."
Later, he cursed at a white Portland city employee crime-prevention specialist who reprimanded him for not dressing better out of uniform. Then, there was the time that he was stopped by D.C. transit police on a Metro train who simply asked for identification. His wife wanted to file a discrimination lawsuit. As first reported on Worldnetdaily.com, the Mooses ended up brokering a successful shakedown of a much bigger target -- the Marriott corporation, which shelled out $200,000 when the couple claimed hotel security workers at one of Hawaii's most luxurious resorts were racist because they asked for ID. More recently, Moose immediately assumed racial persecution in Chevy Chase, Md., when a woman working out at his apartment building's gym simply asked if he worked or lived there.
Rank-and-file cops in Montgomery County have charged that Moose's racial blinders endangered patrol officers and investigators (from whom physical descriptions of the suspects were withheld) -- and probably cost lives. Moose does little to dispel those suspicions when he preaches that "We must all be social engineers" and admits to having "complicated" feelings about Muhammad and Malvo because they are black.
Of this I am certain: The race-obsessed former police chief's path to Jay Leno's sofa was paved in unnecessarily spilt blood. Cue the laugh track.
