    Participation in Racist Float Ruled to Be Protected Speech

    Former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and the heads of the police and fire department violated the First Amendment when they fired three employees for participating in a racist float during a 1998 Labor Day parade in Broad Channel, Queens, a federal judge ruled Tuesday.

    What are your thoughts?

    It was right to let them go on the strength that there jobs bring them into contact with all nationalities, could
    you trust them to do there best in a black community if there was a fire? I think not.
    Now perhaps police should be held to the same standards when thy kill us for no apparent reason.
