The Alabama Justice Project has obtained documents that reveal a Dothan Police Department’s Internal Affairs investigation was covered up by the district attorney. A group of up to a dozen police officers on a specialized narcotics team are believed to have planted drugs and weapons on young black men for years. They were supervised at the time by Lt. Steve Parrish, current Dothan Police Chief, and Sgt. Andy Hughes, current Asst. Director of Homeland Security for the State of Alabama. All of the officers reportedly were members of a Neoconfederate organization that the Southern Poverty Law Center labels “racial extremists.” The group has advocated for blacks to “return” to Africa, published that the civil rights movement is really a Jewish conspiracy, and that blacks have lower IQ’s . Both Parrish and Hughes held leadership positions in the group and are pictured above holding a confederate battle flag at one of the club’s secret meetings.

The documents shared reveal that the internal affairs investigation was covered up to protect the aforementioned officers’ law enforcement careers and keep them from being criminally prosecuted.

Several long term Dothan law enforcement officers, all part of an original group that initiated the investigation, believe the public has a right to know that the Dothan Police Department, and District Attorney Doug Valeska, targeted young black men by planting drugs and weapons on them over a decade. Most of the young men were prosecuted, many sentenced to prison, and some are still in prison.  Many of the officers involved were subsequently promoted and are in leadership positions in law enforcement. They hope the mood of the country is one that demands action and that the US Department of Justice will intervene.

The group of officers requested they be granted anonymity, and shared hundreds of files from the Internal Affairs Division. They reveal a pattern of criminal behavior from within the highest levels of the Dothan Police Department and the district attorney’s office in the 20th Judicial District of Alabama. Multiple current and former officers have agreed to testify if United States Attorney General Loretta Lynch appoints a special prosecutor from outside the state of Alabama, or before a Congressional hearing. The officers believe that there are currently nearly a thousand wrongful convictions resulting in felonies from the 20th Judicial District that are tied to planted drugs and weapons and question whether a system that allows this can be allowed to continue to operate.

Members of the Henry County Report have spent weeks analyzing the documents. The originals, secured at an N.G.O. in Canada, are being shared directly with attorneys in the U.S. Dept. of Justice Civil Rights Division, and are being made available to the lawyers of those falsely convicted that seek to clear their names. The initial effort is to identify the 50 potential victims identified in the case folders of the officer investigated that were outstanding before the court at the time of his investigation. Then further identify the drug arrests made by the other members of the team that had written complaints filed against by fellow officers, that alleged targeting of minorities as is evidenced in the letter presented to the city commision in the leaked documents.

There are two federal lawsuits currently pending by former police officers Keith Gray and Raemonica Carney against the Dothan Police Department. They will be given access as well as they potentially substantiate their claims of racial discrimination and city’s violation of a federal court decree.

The documents appear to serve as irrefutable evidence of criminal activity at the highest levels of the Dothan Police Department.

Beginning in early 1996, the Dothan Police Department received complaints from black victims that drugs and weapons were being planted. Specifically young black men who had clean records were targeted. Police Chief, John White, allegedly instructed senior officers to ignore the complaints and they willingly complied.


In early 1998, we have been given information that a group of concerned white officers from within the Police Department complained in writing about what they witnessed. This is reflected in the document below where it refers to a series of allegations that took place over 11 months before the department acted. The initial written complaint from the department’s own officers is dated June, 1998. The internal memo documents the last allegation as occurring in April of 1999. Almost a year of internal complaints by the department’s own police officers passed before Chief White turned it over to the Internal Affairs Division.

On August 27, 1999 more than a dozen officers had allegations against them for planting drugs and weapons on black men they had falsely arrested. They were each notified of a formal investigation and required to prepare statements in writing to the Internal Affairs Division. One was then tested by polygraph examination, and reportedly failed. The notification of charges reference a combination of marijuana, cocaine, and guns being planted on citizens during arrests that were witnessed by multiple fellow police officers.




All of these cases involving planted drugs and weapons were subsequently prosecuted by District Attorney, Doug Valeska, despite the written allegations by police officers that the evidence was planted. Never was any such information shared in the discovery process with the defendant’s attorneys.  We have been advised that each of these are considered potential felonies committed by the district attorney. The law clearly requires that the prosecutor is required to turn over any evidence that is favorable to the accussed.


District Attorney Doug Valeska


One of the officers alleged to have planted drugs and guns, Michael Magrino, now a private investigator working for the state’s Indigent Defense Fund  was alleged to have stolen weapons and undocumented drugs in his car. A former Dothan police officer familiar with the case told us that “Under no circumstances was this legal, he (Magrino) should have been immediately taken into custody prosecuted but he was not because Lt. Parrish defended him and blocked it.” “They covered the chiefs conference table, it was unbelievable what he had, all untagged or documented.”


Former Dothan police officer Michael Magrino

Magrino subsequently was administered a polygraph test in which he failed miserably, which is illustrated  below.

The documents leaked to us appear to reveal that Magrino contacted District Attorney Doug Valeska and Andy Hughes to intervene into the Internal Affairs investigation. The internal affairs investigatorKeith Gray as well spoke with the district attorney. There is no possibility that the district attorney can deny he did not have knowledge of this incident nor the investigation.

The head of the Internal Affairs investigation, Sgt. Keith Gray, reportedly warned Magrino this was a violation of the departmental procedures. Magrino then reportedly threatened to go to the press if he was fired, according to the investigator and a taped interview with Andy Hughes.

He basically would have done anything to save his skin,” one of the officers told us.
In the internal affairs documents, three names worth noting appear repeatedly.
Capt. Carlton “Bubba” Ott, now commander of the department’s Criminal Investigation Division, Steve Parrish, current Chief, and Andy Hughes, former Sheriff and current Director of Homeland Security for the state.


Carleton “Bubba” Ott, Steve Parrish, and Andy Hughes

All were aware of the investigation and its outcome. All have been rewarded with careers in law enforcement by those for whom they covered, while those who spoke out were forced out of the department. Disturbingly, Ott and Parrish have both attended the FBI academy. Both were highly recommended by the district attorney and former Police Chief, John White.

However, not one of these officers, or members of the district attorney’s office, had the moral courage to do the right thing and correct the wrongful prosecutions against the young men who had drugs and weapons planted on them.  Disturbingly, on his web site, John White lists that he is a adjunct professor at Troy University’s Criminal Justice Program and advertises asking people to let him protect them in the courtroom.

All of these men are now in secure positions of leadership in law enforcement. Many of the men wrongly convicted however are still in prison and have felonies on their record, their lives destroyed.

The results of a polygraph tests given to officers like Michael Magrino were conclusive. The result was DECEPTION STRONGLY INDICATED – probability of deception was greater than 99%.



The result of the internal affairs investigation found that many of the officers should be discharged such as the document below states in Officer Magrino’s case.

The scale of the problem facing the city is indicated in Magrino’s files where it mentions some 50 cases alone in his arrests that were questionably prosecuted. This number does not take into account the previous cases where he was the arresting officer, or the nearly dozen other officers in the squad with allegations against them by fellow officers. On Magrino’s web site he lists the following experience.




Internal Affairs Sergeant, Keith Gray, recommended that Magrino be immediately discharged, and his previous cases reopened for investigation, and the judges and attorneys of those convicted be immediately notified. Gray as, other officers, believed there were possibly hundreds of false arrests in the system by the group of officers, historically perhaps over a thousand if one considers the officers who had complaints against them on the team and their records of drug arrests for the previous years.

However, at this point, our sources and the documents confirm the investigation was shut down, and the files ordered “buried” by Police Chief, John White, and District Attorney, Doug Valeska. The lead investigator, Sgt Keith Gray was not allowed by his superior Chief John White to continue the investigation into the other officers named. This becomes evidenced by a “concerned group Dothan police officers” who subsequently  try to get the US Attorney involved but fail. White then launched an investigation to determine which officers were writing the letters and silent them.

The original group of officers were dismayed that the investigation was covered up. Even more disturbing, the officers responsible were then promoted in the department. They allege the practice of planting drugs continued for years on black men by those who were part of the group.

On November 9th an unsigned letter by the officers was put on Dothan City Commissioner Don Clement’s desk.  In the letter, officers detail how the investigation was covered up and they used officer Magrino as an example, referencing stolen guns and drugs in his patrol car.

They refer to the issue that Magrino, like the other dozen officers had, executed hundreds of arrests that should be questioned in light of the results of the internal affairs investigation.

The letter indicates that federal law enforcement authorities were not notified as required by the department’s and state’s policies.

The letter directly implicates the top management of the Dothan Police Department as being complicit in a cover up of hundreds of felonies. Chief John White responded two weeks later in a letter to Dothan City Manager Jerry Gwaltney copied below.


Note carefully that White stated in writing:


This is at direct odds with the assertions of fellow officers and the lead investigator who handled the case for the internal affairs department.

White appears to have completely misrepresented the ongoing internal affairs investigation, that is evidenced in a letter to him by Sgt Keith Gray where he found that one of the officers in question, Michael Magrino, should be discharged.

Further, White seems to have forgotten the previous multiple written complaints by fellow officers implicating a dozen officers who were witnessed planting drugs and guns on black men dating back to 1998, or the fact that he ordered the cases turned over to internal affairs in the first place.

White’s own words, as early as Nov 1999, are clear evidence of a cover up.

Police Chief John White was then deposed in an unrelated lawsuit where in June of 2001 he gave the following sworn deposition. Again, note that White appears to mislead and give multiple false statements under oath. At this point, he should have had his APOST certification stripped and been prosecuted.



In the deposition, it appears that Police Chief, John White, now a lawyer and Troy University criminal justice professor, is being misleading. With the leaked internal affairs investigation now made public, it’s obvious his sworn testimony is at odds with his written words to city officials, and it appears he lied under oath.

The larger issue could be no less than hundreds of wrongly convicted black men and tens of millions of dollars in potential damages, as well as potential prison terms for himself and the district attorney and those who assisted them.

The original group of police officers responsible for the written complaints were in disbelief and for years afterward attempted to get federal assistance to help those wrongly convicted and continued to warn of the practice of the narcotics team of planting drugs on young black men. The officers who were responsible for the narcotics team, Steve Parrish and Andy Hughes, continued to be advanced in rank and were richly rewarded for their complicity in hiding the truth.
For two decades District Attorney, Doug Valeska, having full knowledge of the situation, proceeded to earn a reputation across the Wiregrass as a tough prosecutor while knowingly prosecuting black men whom he knew the evidence was planted on them in their cases. The district attorney’s office took in millions of dollars in court fees and their pre-trial diversion program.

The group of police officers who chose to notify federal authorities and the US Attorney in a series of constructed letters to protect their own safety documented is below as many had their lives threatened by fellow officers.

By coming forward almost a decade later after these letters, this group of officers who witnessed drugs and weapons being planted and had the moral courage to bravely do the right thing are hoping the United States Department of Justice will intervene. The want a specially appointed federal prosecutor, from outside the state of Alabama to hold District Attorney, Doug Valeska, former Chief, John White, current Chief, Steve Parrish, Homeland Security Director, Andy Hughes, and Capt Carleton Ott responsible. But most importantly, attempt to make those hundreds of young black men’s lives whole again who have been victims of the Dothan Police Department.

They believe the time for justice has come.


Editors note: We contacted Dothan Police Chief Steve Parrish regarding this article and he declined comment, however we agreed to cooperate with him to redact any personal information from the documents that we share with the public that would compromise an ongoing investigation or put an individual at risk.

    This was also found to be happening in Oakland, CA (“Oakland Riders” case) in Philadelphia, but the cops weren’t in a White Supremacist organization. Cops do this on a widespread basis. When they get exposed, police departments spin it to seem as if the practices were confined to only a few officers even though there’s often proof to that the practices were normal. The way they spin it is by saying that these officers were in a particular club. While I’m sure these cops in particular were in a club, I’d bet that the participants in the practices included cops who weren’t. Cops feel that they are judge and jury and look at court systems as a tool for assault. They also believe what they see on TV, they believe that Black and Brown folks are savages and that they are the heroes who need to lock the savages up. They do this to White people too, but it’s easier for them to do it to Black and Brown folks.

    Interesting article. A shame about the banter of IQ after the fact as if that were of any importance or significance.
    I was hoping to find some substantive information in there rather than fervor over what IQ someone has. Silly me.
    I hope that we can all move beyond and try to work together to fix our communities rather than further exacerbate tensions.

Get the movie “Arlington Road”? What will it take to clean up filthy Alabama, another UNcivill War? Why is it called the Civil War anyway? But I digress. GET A LIFE HATERS!

    The police Chief was illegally hired in a meeting that did not comply with the Alabama Open Meetings Law. I protested this and it is pending at the State Attorney’s Offie as an investigation. Maybe someone can tell me why it takes months to see how a notice was posted or not. This was also reported to the FBI, the President, the Attorney General and the Court as a motion to FREE THE SLAVES IN DOTHAN, AL, in the Keith Gray Case. The information is not new. The situation is dire in the Southeast Alabama Area.

    The Chief of Police should have been vetted before hiring in April and all hate group, hate watch group members must go from policing. This is a man who has recruited his subordinates to join an organization which excludes the blacks and women while at work while it is a clear violation of policy to do such things, at work. The organizaiton would be fine, except, other factors in his background say clearly that he is a Confederate – compatriot, waves and enemy flag of the United States of America, supports slavery and this is not history, because he created an organizaiton within the police department which promoted its members over others within the department. It is true that blacks served as Confederate Soldiers, however, it is offensive to the fellow officers when their superior offier recruits persons to align with him, in an organization which promotes rebels who stood against the United States of America at a time when many were slaves. Couple this with a man who allegedly fraternized with the KKK and named his som after the first Grand Wizard, you have a troubling combination. Read the court documents, he allegedly made up the information on police reports to have black officers fired. There is a serious need to vet the public safety personnel and follow due process of law. Our town does not do this and this is what we end up with, someone who calls journalists names, but allegedly was involved in investigations which they ought to be able to provide documents for, since they are alble to say that they are authentic and the deparment is transparent. What a travesty of injustice and racism.

    In his press release, Parrish commented on this article below which drew multiple death threats in order to silence people about this matter. This article, in which a blogger threatens that people will be killed, and also states that Steve Parrish-Police Chief of Dothan Police and Don Valenza- Houston County Sheriff can verify who he is. Read this and all of the comments by Ron Watson and ask yourself, why has the Dothan Police not promoted people coming forward with information and why he attacks the Henry County Report for their efforts where Court TV, and America’s most wanted failed:

    In the commnts section, there is a man named Ron Watson, to read these comments from what is supposed to be a badged, DOD Employee, DEA officer or some badge toting official in the area gives an idea of what we face in the wiregrass in policing. In this thread, Jacqui Burgoon commented about being harassed by this man while Steve Parrish’s comments seem to taunt Jon Carroll for exposing what is said to be police-involved murders and a serious drug ring in the area. In my opibnion, this man’s comments are terroristic towards the general public who might even try to help to solve these murders. This area has many unsolved murders, Jacqui’s sister and Hawlett’s father and Hawlett’s sister. When someone like a Ron Watson states that Steve Parrish and Don Valenza can verify who he is, while his comments states that people will be killed, one has to wonder who is Steve Parrish and who is Don Valenza, Chief of Police-Dothan, AL and Sheriff of Houston County, AL?

    While the bunch of you argue over something that isn’t the subject of the above article, chew on this. James made the subject about intellectual differences between the races, and guess what, all but a handful of the comments bought right into it. So many of you are the “pot cursing the kettle for being black”.
    The main body of the story involves police corruption, not intelligence levels of this race or that.
    The documentation, though it does indicate some level of corruption, provides no witness to Mr. Magrino ever having knowledge of his “planting of evidence”. That would cause what is known as the “shadow of doubt”, and would make it difficult to prosecute. Without any other witnesses who saw or have knowledge of “planting evidence” by Magrino this case will probably go nowhere. It also clearly states that the investigation of Magrino was about mishandling of evidence, not planting it. For which, Mr. Magrino resigned, whether to avoid departmental punishment or to protect other officers from being investigated as well, is yet to be determined.
    Many of the sites and organizations who shared this story have already submitted retractions and taken this story off of their site or page.
    Furthermore, James has only sparked a race debate, which again, you all bought into like sheep being led to slaughter.
    Thank you for reading.

      It’s real easy to led blacks down the path you want them to take. They are always anxious to play the race card. They are gullible and present a format that always disseminates the information you want distributed. One of those ancillary benefits they don’t even realize they’re providing. lol

        December 4, 2015 at 12:38 pm

        Well James, your comments I find abhorrently disconcerting in regard to racial issues in this country today. It is because of comments like you have made that keep the racial fire in this country fueled. I am not calling you out as the only perpetrator of this. There are several others whom have replied to your comments, and with every reply the atmosphere of the conversation gets more and more divisive.
        I am simply stating, stop being a part of the problem and start being a part of the solution. In other words keep your racially slanderous remarks out of your comments.
        Yes, I know that first paragraph states that the members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans believe that blacks are intellectually inferior to whites, however that is not the subject of the article. That statement is speculation at best, as Mr. Carroll cannot, with absolute certainty, confirm the beliefs of all individuals in that group.
        Again, I don’t have all of the facts and perhaps neither does Mr. Carroll. Therefore, I can make no determination into the innocence or guilt of Magrino.
        I for one, don’t care if you are black, white, red, yellow or pink with purple polka dots. Good people are good people, no matter the color of their skin and deserve to be treated as fairly as the next guy.

If the truth offends someone then they should strive to change the truth from present conditions. It offends me when whites get blamed for everything that goes wrong in a black mans life.

      I think you are mistakenly assuming that what’s posted is all they have. I doubt that’s true. And what none of us know is what the live testimony is. Most cases are decided on live testimony. I know, I tried cases for nearly 30 years.

      Also, what’s been posted makes for an extremely strong circumstantial case. Give me one of those any day. Circumstantial cases are the strongest.

      • Mr. ?

        December 4, 2015 at 1:31 pm

        Jeff, as i said earlier, it appears there was some type of wrongdoing/cover up, although the extent can’t be determined. But, I feel if they had any information that was morn damning than that, it would have been posted along with the rest. If there is more, who knows, they may have turned that into the DOJ.

    Dear Chief Parrish: There are Investigative Journalists like myself who are in the process of uncovering and documenting abuse of police power in Southeast Alabama and Northwest Florida. Certainly not all police officers are involved in this activity, but it has been centered among a group of officers and court officials who are or have been members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.
    In 2006 Stan Peacock a Defense Attorney with the Marianna Public Defender’s office was the local president. The Sons of Confederate Veterans are neo-nazi, skin-heads and biker group who have blended in with police officers to control and run black drug gangs. They promote themselves as simply Civil War Enactment players, yet they have hundreds of military posts in the United States and Germany adopting the fascist line of the outlawed Nazi party.
    In Alabama disgraced federal judge Mark Fuller’s law partner is a member of the Elba, AL post. By your own admission and federal court paperwork you have been an active member of that group. I speak from a position of credibility in that the Sons of Confederate Veterans targeted me for malicious prosecution and were likely involved with arranging the murder of my mother Nellie Ruth Caylor on August 2, 2006 and the attempted murder of myself on that date and later in March 2014 at Headland, Alabama.

    In 1978 Dothan Police narcotics detective Robert Jackson was assassinated by this group of individuals. In March of 2014 after surviving the attempted murder on myself at Headland, Alabama with an arson firebombing and electrocution booby-trap I setup camp in a Dothan motel and began to dig for answers and asked the local Dothan, Mobile and Montgomery Offices of the FBI to investigate. A source who worked at that motel came to arrange a meeting to shed light on the incident.
    A motel front desk employee Cameron Parrish blocked that attempt and told the source she had no business supplying information against the Dothan Police Department. I subsequently arranged a private meeting with the source and was forced to abort it when officers of your Dothan, PD and Houston County Sheriff’s department showed at the meeting. Afterwards – back at the motel I approached Cameron Parrish and we almost had a physical altercation when he attempted to jump over the front desk and assault me.
    Parrish stated I had no business investigating Dothan Police and he was well informed about the local FBI and critical information since that agency is located in the same bank building as his mother’s employer and that is the accounting and collections division of Southeast Alabama Medical Center whom I believe may be “money laundering drug money”, along with the United Methodist Foundation at Dothan and I know for a fact the FBI in D.C. launched an investigation on the latter.
    It is important I point out before closing that in the late 90’s and early 2000 time frame I assisted prosecutors on the Jim Blackmon case and discovered hidden financial statements covering up embezzlement of funds from Southeast Medical Center and Jim Blackmon took the fall for those people, I found those hidden documents in a rat hole in the ceiling of the Houston County Clerk of Court office and had to get a ladder to search the ceiling – talk about corruption and cover-ups, Nice try with your letter but I remind you there are no statute of limitations on murder.

    This thread should be about the news article (barely) above. Instead, we see everyone talking about some idiotic statistics mentioned. Maybe people could FOCUS on the complete misreading of the highly redacted documents as well as the obviously intentionally incorrect conclusions of the blogger (who has an obvious agenda). I read the documents and all but one appear to related to an officer mishandling evidence which he was released for. The last one contained so many grammatical errors I found it almost impossible to read much less derive any useful info from. When they can post docs with actual proof of any allegations of misconduct related to the articles title I will comment further. Get a grip folks.

    This is massive police corruption and should be punished to the full extent of the law. Let the trials begin. Afford the accused a fair trail that they denied to their victims. Give them hard time if found guilty.

    I am a conservative white man who doesnt normally support black charges of racism but this case is a slam dunk example of it. Racism in the arena of criminal justice where innocents are railroaded just because of their race is really vile. Corrupt cops of any stripe should be vigorously prosecuted especially when they abuse the immense powers given to them by society.

    Pigs pigging Pigs. Police policing police. What could go wrong. This is sooo sooo wrong in a a free and democrating society. Throw them all in jail, but NOOOOO, that would be wrong, lets give them all a chance to get away with this by blaming someone else. This makes me so sick, why do you think everybody wants marijuana to be legal, people are tired of seeing this kind of disrespectful disrespect of those who pass a 6 month course to be a cop, slap on a badge and shove a loaded gun on their belt. Now if police were policed by the general public, this wouldn’t be happening. Just like police who are also firemen, and plant fires so they can get into your LIFE. NOOO that couldn’t happen. Police policing police, what could go wrong? It’s just other peoples’ lives that are being ruined, so a few can get their pay and pension, so they can buy all the apartments cause nobody else has any money, thank you Democracy. Freedom for all or Freedom for some to impose their self righteous ideology of freedom on others. PIGS smell like pigs.

    Hello Admin, Honestly this blog is so useful, I never said i questioned how the information was presented. I said i questioned the extent of the information depicted in the article. There is a big difference in what i said and what you assert.I personally think if would be hard for that much corruption to take place and not surface before now. I never said no corruption took place. Some or any might have and some might not. Everything i read was more accusation than conviction.

    …..I have proof….they use fake search warrants, and the District attorneys along with the Judges and defense attorneys allow it and go as far as providing fake indictments to match . And they target underprivileged citizens who can’t put their money where their mouth is as the chief said. Defendants don’t have rights at the Houston county courthouse if they can’t afford an attorney outside of the buddy system,The u.s constitution doesn’t exist for young black men and other underprivileged citizens of Dothan. Most of our appointed attorneys are former d.a and narcotics officers, who like mark Johnson went from narcotics to d.a to defense attorney and back to d.a. after forcing countless innocent people to take plea bargains as their attorney. I’m going to leak my documents that are more recent proof of injustice since the chief has called anyone with proof to step forward. Though he should probably rethink calling us out because he thinks Doug valeska,along with his clerks,defense attorneys and judges have covered up all the injustice by labeling forged cases justified and locking away the victims. But it doesn’t change the facts that prove the u.s constitution and the due process of law are irrelevant in Dothan for young black men And underprivileged citizens who have to be represented by appointed counsel who help carry out this injustice by forcing everyone into plea bargains instead of challenging the injustice of these criminals.

      to henrycountyrep.
      Steve Parrish was chosen as the police chief when there were 16 candidates who did not belong to the Sons of the Confederate Veterans or the KKK. Steve Parrish has a son named after the First Grand Dragon of the KKK and this son is less than 31 years old; the time that he has been on the force. I am told that he is still a teenager. Steve Parrish recruited persons from the police department to join the Sons of the Confederate Veterans while at work, yet when the black officers asked for applications, it is my information that they were denied. Apparently he was recruiting for a racist, sexist organization at work and now those members are high ranking police officers who remain there. This is outrageous if I stopped here, it would disqualify anyone as a police officer. I have loud this choice for our next police chief, after I had reported a murder which went un-investigated by the Dothan PD. When I attempted to build a green jobs training center in 2013, The Downtown Redevelopment Authority engaged in illegal Asbestos Removal and the building was burned down in July 2014. Several federal investigations are pending on this matter and this catapulted me into the spotlight as an advocate for change in this area, based on Due Process of Law for everyone.

      Steve Parrish’s name is mentioned 38 times in the Federal Judge’s Opinion in the Ivan Keith Gray v. The City of Dothan case which is still pending in the Middle District of Alabama. It clearly sets forth 28 years of racial hate, hostile environment and conspiracies to violate civil rights, just like this incident.

      Keith Gray, a 28 year veteran of the Dothan Police Department is the only black to ever make the rank of Captain on the Dothan Police Force. He had to sue in court to be hired when they closed the roster untimely, when he became the next to be hired. Keith also sued in order to advance within the department, yet he was deliberately looked over, discriminated against and had the description of the jobs changed several times to prevent his advancement to Chief. This Federal Judge’s Opinion (Judge Myron Thompson) reads like a Jim Crow Handbook. (Jon, please link that Opinion here). He and officer Carney, were denied training which was given to white officers, including the FBI school according to court documents. Keith was an investigator on the weapons and drug planting cases and recommended that the culprits be fired and punished, yet Magrino is now the investigator on the Kharon Davis case where the same District Attorney has had this young man sitting in Houston County Jail for over 8 years without a trial or bail for a capital murder case that he maintains that he did not commit.

      The mother is seeking to have him released due to the failure to provide a speedy trial,cruel and unusual punishment and indicates that he is severely malnourished. Yet he still wrote to her, worried about another inmate who was fed on the floor and kept naked 24 hours per day even in the winter. Kharon Davis is kept in Solitary Confinement 23 hours per day according to information given in our meeting and was recently moved to a cell where another young man Martez Dozier was killed (foul play according to his family member reporting to me) on October 31/Nov. 1 of this year. The report is that the cell where the young man died had not been cleaned and when the NAACP facilitated a visit by the mother, the young man, Kharon was tortured by being forced to move there.

      Parrish, admits to being a history buff and being a supporter of slavery. He would know that the name Nathan Bedford Forrest belongs to a man who killed blacks who were surrendered. This, people may just explain all of the police shootings where the black men are surrendering. Naming one’s son after such a person, when you claim to be a history buff and when this is not a family member is very disconcerting. This is the same as JB Stoner’s letter to the Mayor of New York:

      This man has some deep rooted ties to racist hate groups including the KKK and the Sons of the Confederate Veterans, which are Terrorist organizations and/or hate watch group organizations. A person known to me, indicated, in the presence of witnesses that he had observed Steve Parrish meeting with KKK member(s) over a period of years. According to this source, Steve Parrish lived in Cottonwood, AL, a headquarters for Klan activity in the area.

      CALEA VALIDATES NOTHING ABOUT RACIST ON THE FORCE AND ILLEGAL ACTIVITY WITHIN THE POLICE FORCE. I will tell them that Steve Parrish mentioned the certification of the agency, which, by the way is their lowest level of certification-the agency pays for this also. I spoke at length with the CALEA Team. The CALEA certification which he refers to does not measure the affiliation with hate groups or the actual use of the training that they verfiy that the members of the agency have. It only measures training of the officers. One of the complaints in both the Raemonica Carney Case and in the Ivan Keith Gray case was that the training provided to the black officers was not the same as was provided to white officers; hence racial discrimination in the opportunity to advance. Keith Gray even mentions paying for training out of his own pocket in order to advance.

      As for CALEA, I went to their Public comment session to express my concerns that CALEA Would certify an organization which violates Federal Consent Decrees, Affirmative action plans and where many of the members of the organization are members of known racial hate groups/hate watch groups. I took this picture and sent it to them also. I told them about the two pending federal lawsuits alleging racism were clearly, with merit. The CALEA Cerification means nothing when the person is given the position over more highly qualified, non-racist persons in an illegal meeting, by an illegally seated City Manger, etc.

      The public comment session for CALEA was held in the City Courtroom with an officer or someone in uniform, videotaping the event. The place was not inviting to anyone with any criminal record or problems with this police department, as it was clear that this was a hostile environment for public comment. Only three people showed up, myself and two others. We complained about racial discrimination, however, CALEA Told me that they do not consider anything except the training that they receive.

      Mike west and Albert Kirkland were there and they were clear that there were concerns of the racist ties within the police department. Mike West is the City Manager and when it was time to renew his contract, the city did not take the procedures required by the contract, a 30 day look, prior to placing the renewal on the regular agenda for voting. Hence, the City Manager is seated illegally. He hails from Columbia, South Carolina.

      There were 16 candidates for the Chief of Police Position, and the City Manager only provided my Commissioner, Amos Newsome with the resumes of 2 candidates on the afternoon prior to April 21st vote date according to my commissioner. There was no transparency. Steve Parrish and an African American were allegedly the two finalists, yet written requests from my Commissioner to disclose whether the City had complied with the pending Federal Consent Decree to integrate, which has been pending since 1976, yet ignored, went unanswered to this day. Mr. Amos Newsome, an 82 year Ret. Lt. Col. requested to see the resumes of the candidates for the position, yet was denied when he wrote to the City Manager and the Personnel Director. This city was ordered in the Federal Consent Decree to comply with the Affirmative Action plan which requires that they choose the best candidate for the job, not use insiders. When a candidate is the subject in multiple federal lawsuits which have cost the City approximately a quarter million dollars to defend, he is not the best candidate. There were 15 other candidates, including Ivan Keith Gray, and they were all looked over and their credentials hidden from my commissioner. The full City Commission except my commissioner, voted in favor of Steve Parrish for the next Chief of Police although they did not see the other resumes.

      Steve Parrish is a subject in both the Raemonica Carney case and the Ivan Keith Gray Case in which affidavits show that he fabricated the facts of the police reports which were used to fire them. Keith Gray was highly qualified with preferred credentials for Police Chief and it appears that Steve Parrish working with Michael Woodside fabricated police report. Raemonica Carney had been told to go home on a traffic stop where a woman was driving under the influence and when Clark Rice (holding the confederate flag also), arrived he allowed the woman continue to drive although Raemonica identified her as impaired and unable to drive before she was dismissed from the scene. A few minutes later, she ran into a man pinning him to the wall, killing him. Raemonica would not change her story to match that of the other officers and she was targeted and fired. Clark Rice and others were retained and promoted who were responsible for the death of Mr. Downing. Raemonica reports receiving death threats. That night while we were at CALEA, Raemonica’s repored that her mother’s car was shot into. She said that when the Dothan PD arrived, they refused to collect the ballistic evidence and that had to Call CALEA to force the Dothan PD to collect the evidence. So much for a CALEA Certification. It was explained to me by CALEA That they only looked at the training that the officers had taken, not their behavior, racial makeup, treatment of fellow officers, memers of KKK or other hate groups. So why would Steve Parrish mention CALEA? That is about as relevant as the man who thinks that IQ allows racial hate crimes to be perpetrated without punishment.

      Now, with the city having already spent over $200,000, defending the Keith Gray case alone, this man, whose son is named after the first grand dragon of the KKK, having his name mentioned 38 times, not in a good light, became our new chief of police on April 21st, in an illegal meeting which did not comply with the open meetings law, by a City Manager who is illegally seated in a Commission meeting led by the Mayor who the EEOC officer has admitted pays him kickback and in other ways, and the EEOC officer does not find any racism complaints against the city valid, nor does he report the kickback payments to the State Ethics Commission.

      Need I say more about integrity, transparency or compliance with the law. This is just a short narrative of what has taken place in Dothan, AL. Apparently they consider this area, THE LAST CONFEDERATE STRONGHOLD. Parrish claims to be a history buff and a patriot. He cannot be allegiant to two flags, he is holding the Confederate flag and apparently thinks that he should be paid by the public to call him a peace officer. Well, anyone who names his son after he First Grand Dragon of the KKK and who has had a hanging of a young black man during the time on the force, claiming to have “gotten out” in 2006 when Young Zachery Smith, a black young man was hanged in the park is very disconcerting. All of these facts were still of no consequence to the Dothan City Commission, who after being warned appointed this man as our next police chief. The Mayor of Dothan claims to be an orphan who is Named Mike Schmitz. We have a local German Prision of war Camp in the area. I was not aware until recently that at the end of the war, many NAZIS simply walked out and into American Society. This apparently has created the Neo-Nazis and they are coupled with the KKKs in this area and apparently have infiltrated all walks of life in the lower Alabama area and offices throughout Alabama.

      Dothan Police department routinely hires police officers who have engaged in criminal behavior elsewhere. There are two cases pending in Federal Court now which involve police officers fired in other jurisdictions, hired in Dothan and causing very serious problems, even shooting of an unarmed black man, Chris Thomas in 2012; Darren Moody-fired in Pensacola, hired here:

      Steve Parrish is very favorable to Michael Woodside, another very controversial hiring:

      Woodside had a history of excessive force and was fired after 4 incidents in Palm Beach County Sheriff Dept. the last was where he arresred a woman, slammed her on the ground, then handcuffed her placing her under arrest in the backseat of his car, then repeatedly punching her in the face. This case was settled for $122,000 this past June. Michael Woodside posted the half charred picture of President Obama on his facebook , but according to the punishment meted out by Steve Parrish against Raemonica Carney they have a strict social media policy, however, nothing was done to Michael Woodside. Michael Woodside was named to the Community Impact Team shortly after Parrish became Chief of Police:

      As a part of the Community Impact Team, they policed in the housing projects including Johnson Homes. Now, we have a death in the Houston County Jail on October 31st of Martez Dozier, a 25 year black man whose family informed me was a result of foul play. The stories include someone having money put on their books to start a fight, which resulted in Martez being moved out of the cell and placed in solitary confinement where he died suspiciously. This apparently was claimed that Martez was in or around Johnson Homes when he punched a police officer in the face with a closed fist. Witnesses do not agree with this account by the police according to my information. The incident involved an elbow, not fist. By hitting with a closed this is considered a felony. landing one in the county jail. Now, he is dead and apparently a murder in jail, according to family. This may well have involved Michael Woodside who is reported to have been fired by Sgt. Egelston when he cracked his windshield on his squad car with his service revolver???? The information received is that Steve Parrish recommended him and he wound up hired at Houston County. This travesty of occurrences outlines just the tip of the iceberg of some of my information and observations. Who would want this team policing them?

      Woodside was put on a team by Steve Parrish to patrol in the Housing Projects in June 2015. The same month, a settlement of $122,000 was being paid in Palm Beach County for him punching a woman in the face repeatedly. He was also one of the responding officers along with Steve Parrish, in an incident where Keith Gray is alleged to have gone to a motorcycle club to ask that his club could ride peaceably which is a tradition. Some time after Gray left the club, a fight broke out and Michael Woodside and Steve Parrish supposedly responded. The police report which is disputed in court documents as to its accuracy, by an affidavit provided by the alleged person reporting this incident to the responding officers, indicates manufactured evidence.

      At least Parrish indicates that these documents appear authentic for the article. It is a shame that he would not clearly remember such documents and incidents and taken corrective action. Claiming that only one person was involved in this is shameful. I personally know several from the past few years as well as multiple re-arrests on already served warrants.

      A friend’s son called me shortly after leaving my presence and told me that he had just had drugs placed in his vehicle. I have asked him to come forward, however he is afraid of retaliation. He informed me that he had pleaded guilty to a paraphenalia charge in order to avoid a felony charge, saying that no one is going to do anything to the police for doing this and if he comes forward it will just get worse.

      If you really want to know what the evidence shows on the Dothan Police Department’s racist behavior; Everyone should read this opinion. This opinion mentions Steve Parrish’s name 38 times according to my count. It describes the hostile work environment and racism that gives 28 years of Keith Gray’s horrific treatment while he sued to advance from the outset at Dothan PD. The City is under a Federal Consent Decree in Glennie Wiggins v. R.L. Hollis for 39 years. The City chooses to ignore the federal Decree. When a black commissioner, Amos Newsome asked that they comply with the Affirmative Action plan, he was ridiculed, called a racist and touted to resign. This resulted in my 82 year old commissioner hitting a local news reporter in the face:

      With multiple lawsuits pending, the city having paid over $200,000 defending one of the racial discrimination lawsuits, with the credentials hidden of 14 of the other candidates, in a meeting which was illegal and non-compliant with the State of Alabama’s Open Meeting Laws (now under investigation by the State Attorney’s Office), by a City manager who is illegally seated, and a Mayor who is paying the EEOC officer Kickback; a man whose son is named after the first Grand Dragon of the KKK, who recruited members of the police force to join the Sons of the Confederate Veterans chapter at work, which he started, was chosen as our police chief on April 21st. Need I say more. Add insult to injury, this position became available when the former Chief of Police Greg Benton suddenly decided to retire a week after admitting under oath, in depositions in the Keith Gray Case to having an adulterous affair with a woman who worked at Southern Linc Wireless, another cooperator who provided evidence against Keith Gray which was later “LOST” when subpoenaed.

      If I never touched on the planting of evidence and criminal behavior by other cops, Steve Parrish should not be on the Police force for many other reasons. This whole place operates as if they are still in slavery times and at no time have our Senator, Jeff Sessions or Representative Martha Roby,addressed the terroristic arrangements against blacks in their districts or included us in opportunities for equality although Dothan’s population is approximately 30% black.

        Your comment is full of holes and unsubstantiated accusations. It repeats it self several times, in my opinion to “bulk up” your comment to make it appear more realistic. Your repetition of connections to “racist” groups is unsubstantiated. The repetitions by you of reference the name of someone’s child is ridiculous. It has absolutely nothing to do with an investigation and even if it is true that someone is named after a historical figure it is not an indication of racism. There are numerous references to other “pending” investigations….investigations. Not verified, prosecuted trials resulting in convictions. Where are the references to convictions? There must be some. I refuse to do your research for you when it is apparent that you are completely biased. I could go on further to attempt to discredit your comment but I prefer to rebut the article itself.

      James, Question: of all the things you could have said, and you admit what you said has no direct correlation to this story, why would you pick that one thing to point out? Even you admit there is a reason for the gap. But claiming over and over that Blacks overall score low on race slanted IQ tests, you are trying to prove some point you claim is not racist?

      Connect the dots for those of us not up on your hobbies. What does your statement have to do with this case? Why have you spent all day defending it as if it were some pertinent fact of this particular care?

        My point was to prove i am right to the people saying i was wrong in my original comment. Just because someone doesn’t like something doesn’t make it an error or lie. Some might not have known there is such a large intellectual difference between blacks and whites. This discussion could have been educational for them. It explains why many blacks cannot answer simple logic questions such as this……..

          December 3, 2015 at 8:33 am

          Ahh well NOW you are getting to your point. You are excusing the Klan because you have found some non sequitur factoid and “blacks deserve this because they are stupider than whites”. In “simply pointingout” this “fact” you attempt to make a racist apology.

          “They” are ALL stupid. Every ‘average’ single black person is ‘stupider’ than the ‘average’ white. Ergo, according to you, THIS EXPLAINS EVERYTHING.

          But like the others say, your point is off a bit. There is not an INTELLECTUAL difference there is an EDUCATIONAL Difference.
          You say “Nature”
          We say “Nurture”

          Let run with your illogical ‘fact checking’ for a moment. Do you have anyone in your family mentally disabled? When they mess up, do you beat them and lock them in a cage, saying “its not my fault you have a low IQ”.

          You say over and over how misunderstood you are. And we keep telling you that your ‘fact’ has ZERO bearing on what these white pigs did to the “stupid” blacks. How can you support a community where the ‘blissfully stupid’ are beaten, murdered, and given criminal records?

          The Denial runs deep in this one.You find a video of a man who has been beaten down by a system that discourages educational opportunities. Whoopty Woo. Let me go find about 30 Jimmie Kimmel videos showing how STUPID whites are.

          Give it up “James”. You don’t even have the guts to use your full name.

            Does it matter if the cause is nature or nurture? The gap still exist no matter the cause. I don’t believe i ever said it was nature. I don’t know where you came up with that. Most psychometricians say it is from .40 to .80 genetics.I really don’t know and don’t care why the gap exist.My point is that it does exist in IQ and academic scores.

    I found some differences between the Chief of Police’s written statement and the one he gave “live” at a press conference.
    Here is a link to what they printed and released:

    Here is the transcription of his statement:
    (forgive the rush job, its a bit rough.)
    In todays’s social media driven society, many individuals take what they read on the internet as factual. While I’m not in the habit of responding to misinformation published by bloggers, accusations made concerning the credibility of the men and women of this agency will not go unanswered. An attempt has been made

    An attempt has been made to not only discredit me, but the Dothan Police Department; the 20th Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office; and past and present employees of this agency by accusing the members of this agency of criminal activity and others for covering up such activity. While the photo-copies mentioned in the blog that I’m referring to appear to be factual, uh, uh, appear to be authentic for that time period, Mr Carroll seems to have arranged and redacted those copies in order to meet his agenda.

    The specific incidentthat he illustrates involved a former officer and that was addressed back in the late 1990sit was addressed within the parameters of the law and the police department policies of that time. The officer involved in that incident has not worked at this agency since that time. It’s also to, it’s also and very important to understand that the information within the photo-copies never says anything about any drugs being planted on anyone. But talk about the mishandling of evidence by that officer. To my kowledge there has never been a single complaint filed against that officer. During his entire career for allegations of plating drugs or any other evidence planted on anyone Theres simply too many outright lies and fabrications inthis blog to address, but it would seem that his opinion and thats all it is, is his opinion has been taken by many as fact.

    I’ve received calls from the NY Times, Ive received calls from CNN and its a sad day when people read something online and they take it for fact, without any attempt to confirm. And it really burns my ass to have the men and women of this agency that we serve subjected to this type of crap from an individual like this, we are a loyal servants to this city, we are a loyal servants to the visitors of this city, we strive to be not only transparent but we strive for excellence, we are one of 5% of angencies in this entire country of 18. 000 agencies that are CALEA acredited, that’s astandard of excellence and it burns me up when people like this get on the internet and they run their mouth about the things that we’re doin’ wrong and have absolutely nothing to base it on, so, I wanna ask Mr. Carroll to put your money where your mouth is and give me some names, bring some people forward. I want to hear it from him. Ive talked to the district attorney today and I asked Mr Valeska, “How many times in the history of your prosecuting any cases have you ever had any defendant accuse the police of planting drugs on them. He said None that I can remember”.

    We trandfer cases to the United State Prosecutors where are the complaints there? We prosecuted hundreds of cases there where are the complaints there? I put 500 people in jail for drugs in my career I never had a complaint againts me so Mr Carroll, put your money where your mouth is. I’ll be glad to take any of yer questions, but before I do I’m gonna say this. I welcome any federal agancy The United States Attorney’s off ice, The Department of Justice, the President himself can come down here and look at everything we’ve got. We are an open book, we are transparent, that is our platform and its what we do and its what we gonna do.


    Question 1: Chief, you mentioned CNN and other news agencies when they called you and asked you did they just, had they already taken it for granted that these allegations were true and substantial?

    Chief Parrish: John, the, the nature of the questions were “How do you respond to the allegations of drugs being planted onuh uh minority defendants over a period of a long time” I said, “Where does it say that in any of these documents. It doesn’t. Its the specualtion oif a loon, okay, and what he says – what he thinks happened. If, if, you remember as little as 3 or 4 weeks ago, this guy posted… he stirred the entire Southeast up with being able to solve the Hawlett Beasely murder because uh, some police officer did it. But where did that come from?” okay where did it go? It didn’t go anywhere, because the Ozark Police Department did their job and did the things that they were supposed to do by the book and by the letter. Now this guy, and and if you remember, the young lady he was talking to Ms Beasely, I believe her name was? She came forward afterwards and said she was manipulated by him. to make the story fit the way he wanted. That’s what it’s about and I hate to even call this conference. to talk about this ’cause now people are gonna go in there and they’re gonna read that, they’re gonna read his website. and they’re gonna give him credibility. Because it does give him a little bit of credibility because I’m standin up here, as the Chief of Police of this organization defending not only my self, but the men and women of that agency. And that’s what really bothers me Is that Im havin’ to do this. But the slant is there, you know why uh, what do you have to say about it? Well I asked him have you read the material? Have you looked at it? Most of them haven’t. I got a call last night from a reporter and I was on the phone and my wife answered the phone , “If he don’t call me back by tomorrow morning, it’s gonna be bad news for him, well, you know… Bring it On. You know, I’m a big boy but don’t talk about this agency, ok.

    Question 2: Youre pissed aren’t you?

    Chief Parrish: I am Im upset, I’m upset about it….Cmon why don’tcha ask me a question?

    Question 3: Accompananing, Accompanying the article uh, which I understand is not accessible now, I don’t know about that but, accompanaying the article’s a photograph. The photograph had been around for a long, long time and I know you’ve explained this probably more than needs to be, but one more time.

    Chief Parrish: Sure.

    Qquestioner3: How did this photograph come about?

    Chief Parrish: The the the photograph in the context of this story is to an excellent exaple of what Jon Carroll tries to do. okay? He takes a phtograph from 1999, 2000, uh of of , of, a group … and let me do a little background, I’m a history enthusiast, ok? Geneaology is what I’ve studied my lineage, my ancetors fought for the south during the civil war. Im proud of that. If That makes me a deon, I’m sorry. ok. and, uh, and and, in 1999-2000 I though what a novel idea to form a Sons of Confederate Veterans chapter, in Henry County al. Henry County is one of the oldest counties in the state of Alabama. Not many people know that. So, I needed ten people to form a charter. ok so I asked other people in tyhe department who knew a little bit about the ancestry to join and help me for the charter. This is a 501c, ok? I don’t, I don’t know id the SPLC considered, I don’t think they considered it a hate group. You know, I’ve heard it’s on the watch list, the city of dothan forbids anyone to be any member that advocates the overthrow of the United States Gov’t. Well Im red white and blue to the core but I have rights as well. ok. That is a non profit organization you can go down to the courthouse and buy you a tribute tag right now. That is, like I said. He takes this, he paints a pictures of this secret society within the police departemnt that plants drugs on people? That pisses me off.

    Any more questions?…. Thank you for your time.

        Here is a link to what they printed and released:

        here is the video of the “live” press conference”

        I don’t know why you think I am supporting the Chief. I am pointing out differences in wording between the two.

    Those talking about IQ, or anything at all, in order to validate the actions of these officers, are willfully ignoring and/or condoning their illegal actions.
    Laws have been broken and innocent people have been wronged. To approve of this is to have complete, cynical disregard for due process and justice.

    If you believe in the law, acknowledge that it has been broken, and leave things at that.

    Thank you to the writer for this article. It shows why Black people have a fear and distrust of the police. It also shows how racially prejudiced people will ignore ANY evidence that proves bias on their part in order to latch on something that will continue to cast their target in a negative light. The fact that the bulk of the comments on those post were in response to a commentator and NOT to the post itself is telling. For so many reasons.

    I wonder how many people on here have taken a real IQ test. The ones saying racial bias must not have.Here’s a couple sample questions from a wonderlic test….Tony gets married next month. One year ago from the date he will get married, Tony was away in Spain for New Year’s Eve. What month is it?………..A boy is 17 years old and his sister is twice as old.
    When the boy is 23 years old, what will be the age of his sister? How can either of those questions be racially bias? Another test that has absolutely no racial bias is the Ravens progressive matrices. Admittedly these are two of the simply questions and they get more difficult as you progress but all are similar.

    An article about the injustice that has befallen citizens of our community who were preyed upon by members of the Houston County PD and Houston county DA has been thrawted by James to a discussion about IQ scores.
    The real issue here as the article discussed crimes that have been committed against the citizens of Houston County. For cops to go as far as to plant weapons and drugs on black men and for these men to be convicted and sent to prison due to this is horrendous. If this happened in Dothan I guarantee it has occurred in other municipalities as well. As the old saying goes “what is done in the dark, comes to the light”… It is high time for The Justice Department to open a full investigation of the Dothan Police Department and Mr. Valeska ASAP.. These are what is referred to as thugs with badges. Targeting a specific demographic group and strapping them with felony drug & weapon charges, and they need to be put into the prisons that they so willfully sent innocent people to.

    This is absolutely appalling. James, you have convinced yourself that an “I.Q. Test” has relegated blacks to inferiority, and your posture is that of arrogance, supported by your satisfaction with heuristic research. Since your “I.Q.” is indicative of the superior race, you should have the ability to synthesize the insurrmountable negative variables that impact the research.
    -That is all.

      Why would i need to synthesize anymore negative variables? It appears that plenty exist without the need for me to produce more…LMAO Their IQ helps explain why so many are criminals,can’t get jobs, live in public housing and receives many other types of handouts, etc. Those things makes them inferior as productive members of society.

      I’m white, I can’t think of how many times an acquaintance shared their racist views with me. While I had no problem excoriating these people for their views, while attempting to sway their point-of-view, it never fundamentally changed their position on race.

        I talked to Steve Parrish, he said that this was him and that he was a member of some organization that he got out of in in 2006, but, there is evidence that this was not true of the Confederate Veterans. It seems that he may have gotten out of the KKK. His son is named after the first grand dragon of the KKK, born since he was on the force. The others are clearly aligned with this Sons of Confederate Veterans group which was full force under John White and persisted. The use of the Sons of the Confederate Veterans, with Steve Parrish calling himself Commander of the Henry Light Infantry Camp and recruiting members at work, but not allowing blacks to join. Go figure, the evidence is clear. This group is existing within the Dothan PD and has been for a very long time. Forming a racist allegiance and planting drugs on black young men is a crime.

        IQ is not the issue. Apparently this is totally off subject. The IQ is not the problem. This is even more of an argument that there should not have any convictions if they really did not know what they were doing. Get back on subject. The real truth is that when people cannot make intelligent responses, they form off-topic responses to draw others into discussions that really do not matter. This is called ‘distraction’ from the real subject.

        Because the subject became a series of racial slurs, off topic, it diminishes the focus on the real problem and the discussion itself becomes very unintelligent. Racial slurs do not fix the young black men’s lives, nor do they punish the criminal cops. GET BACK ON SUBJECT. LET THE LOW IQ MAN HAVE A FORUM SOMEWHERE WITH PEOPLE WHO GIVE A DAMN ABOUT IQ when they decide if it is right or not for cops to engage in criminal behavior against blacks. THIS IS NOT THE PLACE, NOR THE TOPIC. HECK, MAYBE THIS CHARACTER, JAMES, SHOULD LEARN TO READ, THEN COMMENT ABOUT OTHER’S STUDIES IN AN APPROPRIATE FORUM.

    SA you are full of it the identity of south Alabama is at risk here. I caution you to study the following advice and call out your neighbour for his sinful ways.

    The race of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph now the kindred AngloSaxonCeltic Christian peoples of the United States, the British Company of Nations, and Western Europe cannot commit to other races the supreme place which God has assigned to that race alone. The exalted position of the Bible’s Covenant Race carries with it worldwide moral and spiritual responsibilities, which no other race has the Godgiven ability to perform. This Divine commission demands of us the spirit of humility and love. As the Apostle Paul reminds us, “Who maketh thee to differ from another? And what hast thou that thou didst not receive?”

    Let none boast of superiority for we are called of God to be His Servant Race. God speaks to His beloved people through the Prophet Isaiah. Note that the message concerns a future time when they no longer understand their past and their relation to the Old and New Covenants. Consider also at this point that the prophet’s message is addressed to the whole house of redeemed Israel, and not to the Jews. The Jews rejected Christ the Redeemer and His Gospel; they have never done the witnessing that God commissioned Israel to do; they are not a company of kindred nations; in fact, they neither do the work nor bear the marks of Israel.

    Here are a few statements from Isaiah to clarify the status of modern white Christian Israel nations:

    “Who is blind, but my servant? Or deaf, as my messenger that I sent?” (42:19.)

    “But now thus saith the Lord that created you, O Jacob, and him that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by my name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour.” (43:1-3.)

    “Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears …. Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour.” (43:8,10-11.)

    We anglo saxons are, indeed, a peculiar people. Chosen above all and segregated for service to the whole world.

      God’s chosen race of White Christians that HAVE to be from Europe or they are not ‘really’ white has ruined this world, and I say that as a 6th Generation Southern White Male (Dr. John Wesley Abbott, anyone?) who could easily join the SCV here in North GA. A place where most of the members are also members of the local KKK. Any SCV member not falling in line with Old South thinking is eventually dropped, by hint or force.

    by the way, it is not for you to judge the Carrolls, that is God’s place, if he is not happy with the way they live their lives, he will deal with them… my guess is, God is pleased with people who do not judge others and love their “brothers” regardless of race, statue in the community, doesn’t the bible say, something similar to ” love each other as I have loved you”… God created us all, the black white and purple… If God did not want us to “mix” why does he allow “products of conception, AKA babies?” WE are supposed to help those who cannot help themselves!!! RIGH?! My suggestion to you is to fall down on your knees and pray for guidance and forgiveness…… Just a thought!!!

    I wondered how long it would take to take the focus off the topic at hand, and how it would be accomplished… “Country Mom” you are indeed racist (the comment “..little negroes..” says it all), the bible also teaches us to love one another…. or at least mine does!! Topic of this article is about a few men who wear badges, under the guise of serving and protecting the community, who have actually done harm, doesn’t really matter if white, black or purple. My guess is if the victims were white, and the cops were black you would be in an uproar!! Why don’t we take color, or race, out of this equation and discuss how men have been wrongly convicted, sentenced and their lives ruined.. crazy concept!!! HCR next article, leave the race out of the description and see how people react….

      Please read Numbers 12:1, this scripture tells the story of the punishment rendered by God to Miriam.

      WOW comes to mind regarding your comment about Jon Carroll. I as one hope you will “unlike” The Henry County Report. It is apparent your racist views have no place outside of your little “country”.

      Doug Valeska has sought to step on the backs of many as he professed to fight crime. Valeska is the REAL criminal here and his corrupt actions have destroyed the lives of many; a true sociopath. Jon Carroll, thank you for your fight for equal rights and justice for ALL no matter the color of their skin. True justice knows no limits. So sad that Alabama is truly corrupt from the top to the bottom with elected officials protecting each other and allowing corruption to run rampant.

      Whom the writer of this article dates is irrelevant to the facts and actions of these men planting evidence on black men and then arresting them. The author’s dating preferences are also irrelevant to the cover up that followed. Nobody hates you because he or she dates someone of another color.

      There is no us, there is only you. Dating someone outside of your race does not mean that you hate your own race. Get over it. The man put forth a document which has irrefutable facts about criminal cops, racists behind the badge and just plain corrupt people. It is time the subject matter became the subject matter, not some simple minded deviation from the topic due to lack of the ability to follow the real topic. This is how we measure IQ. Take your test all you want. If you cannot engage in civilized conversation with intelligent people, this might just be the reason that you are so concerned about IQ. It does not matter to me what the IQ of these people are who were treated wrongly, it is a violation of the rights and the persons perpetrating these heinous crimes must be fired, their pensions taken and jailed. They have not served, nor protected. This is real bad!!

      There is nothing in that article about anyone dating outside of their race. If Jon dated blue babes, this would still be factual evidence and a great journalistic piece that is going to cause some people to feel the same fire that they have been causing on others, illegally. Face the facts, these are criminals.

          I am a developmental neuroscientist, and professor of human growth and development. The IQ does a horrible job of measuring overall intelligence. Further, the best predictor of performance on standardized tests is not race, but parental wealth. Further still, the questions on the IQ tests at that time were often wrought with cultural bias – many required having had experiences that some kids just did not have. I am surprised that someone with psychometrics as a hobby wasn’t aware of the intense criticism from educational psychologists of Murray’s book, and of the heavy confounds in his conclusions. Also – I am of African descent, and would love to see how my scholastic achievements match against yours…

If blacks know the cause then they should have been able to close the gap in the past 50 yrs. The gap did close a few points for several years but latest reports are it has widened again.

Neither camp denies what i have said, that being the black-white IQ gap does exist and has been constant for the past 100 yrs. The only thing i can say that would lend support to the nature/nurture claim is that if the cause is not genetic then it has to be cultural. Genetic or environment, take your choice. The difference exist for some reason. lol

    I don’t know about all the other things in this story but blacks do have on average 1 standard deviation (15 point) lower IQ than whites. Whites average 100 and blacks average 85. It’s irrefutable. It requires a 100 to successfully graduate HS. Undergrad average is 115 and graduate average is 125. This is why blacks are graduating HS but perform at 8th grade levels.

    • Ruth Page-Nelson

      December 1, 2015 at 3:20 pm

      This is about the lack of due process of law and violations of the American Constitution which was drawn up by whites while blacks were yet slaves. If it were about blacks and whites dating, the topic would have said so. It is unfortunate that the only defense would be a lowly racial slur for outright criminal behavior by criminals behind the badge. It is high time that intelligent persons used their intelligence if they have it. Read the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America and the State in which you live and follow them. There is no need for our race to be attacked and falsely jailed and mistreated because some lowly racists believe that they can violate the laws and go unpunished. Stop attacking the messenger. These documents are not made up and this is exactly what I have complained about the whole time. Being affiliated with racial hate groups should disqualify anyone from becoming a peace officer. These are not peace officers, they are race soldiers. Stop the madness about race and who someone chooses to date. If you are so intelligent, then you should be able read the rules written by persons of you race and to follow them, and so should anyone seeking to enforce them. This is not about black and white unless you are so deranged that you believe that criminal behavior is needed to overcome the blacks. There is nothing relevant about who dates who. It is really sick that some people would support the attacking, jailing and murdering of black men when they have no legal right to do so. God created all of us and none should mistreat the other. If you think that God made a mistake, maybe you should take a long look in the mirror and worship a God who does not make mistakes.

      I say to you read Psalms 34 and 37 and understand the fate of the wicked. This is clearly criminal activity which I have harped on about choosing Parrish as Chief of Police in an illegal meeting and a non-compliant process. Our police officers should be vetted. Thanks to the officers who spoke up about this nightmare. Now, it will bankrupt this corrupt city because thousands of young black men’s lives have been ruined and this trickles down to their families, children, etc. Beyond that, there are many poor whites who have had drugs planted on them and their lives ruined also. It is what Dr. Martin Luther King referred to when he said that injustice anywhere leads to injustice everywhere. When you allow this type of behavior to exist, it can be used against anyone. These men are criminals and race soldiers and must be jailed, now. to play fair. The use of underhanded tactics to undermine and justify racial hate only leads to damnation. For anyone who thinks that they are justified to get paid by public with state local and federal funds to violate the rights of others, there is a special place in jail and in hell for them. This has absolutely noting to do with who dates who. Maybe you should read this again with all of you IQ, so you can see if you can understand the words and respond to the topic at hand.

      We have criminal, race soldiers as police and good officers who want to do an honest job. So what is wrong with telling on the criminals? This is the problem with racism, people seem to claim intelligence when they have no evidence of such things in their behavior. This was not real smart but I can say that it is highly illegal. So much for the IQ argument. God will have the last word. Watch it rain hell on these guys!!!!

          December 2, 2015 at 8:22 am

          James, you cannot simply look at numbers and conclude that since there’s a difference, that difference is innate. It’s quite clear, and this article backs it up, that black folks are still fighting against institutionalized racism in america. When you live within a system that’s actively thwarting you, is it any wonder you don’t do as well as “average” people? These tests are a symptom and your bias leads you to an ugly conclusion.

          I have a serious question: Which came first, your disdain for black people or the knowledge that a few studies “proved” racial inferiority?

          • james

            December 2, 2015 at 11:30 am

            Where did i say the difference was innate? I clearly said i would not debate the cause of the difference as being nature or nurture. Those are synonyms for genetic or environmental. I don’t know the cause and that has always been the subject of debate throughout the years. I’ve also never mentioned racial inferiority. I said blacks have always scored lower on IQ test for the past century. What part of that did you misinterpret?

          December 2, 2015 at 2:20 pm

          Out of all the well documented, irrefutable evidence you chose to hang onto a 1 percent standard deviation? This is a sad attempt to divert from the mountain of facts that prove corruption, criminal activity, and coverups. You “don’t know” about any of the evidence, but your clinging to that little factoid about IQ tests? Really? That is so discouraging for people who seek truth and decency, and I hope it doesn’t reflect a general incapacity to reason on the part of Caucasian Alabamans.

          James, as someone who actually administers IQ test instead of having a “hobby” let me state clearly that you are a moron and I doubt that you have a 100 IQ if you believe the racist dribble that blacks have a 15 point IQ difference. On average they perform about 3 points lower but when corrected for socioeconomic status the difference disappears. Let me help you further with your hobby, when a minority is tested by a white person they tend to do more poorly, likely because of the pressure from system racism and morons like you. Again this disappears when tested by someone of their own race. So if a racist piece of garbage wants to skew data all they have to do is place a pompous, racist, white guy in front of a room full of disenfranchised black youths and make them feel uncomfortable and bam!

            “James, as someone who actually administers IQ test [sic] instead of having a ‘hobby’ let me state clearly that you are a moron and I doubt that you have a 100 IQ if you believe the racist dribble that blacks have a 15 point IQ difference….”

            Chris, you’re a complete and utter liar. It’s that simple. If you had any knowledge of mental testing, you would know that the official group IQ for American blacks is 85 (and 70 for African blacks), the white group IQ is 100, the Hispanic IQ in America is 89, the Japanese IQ is 107, and that Chinese and South Koreans both have group IQs of 105.

            I highly doubt that you are involved in mental testing. Unlike you, real psychometricians do not lie about racial differences in IQ (much less compulsively, like you do), they don’t race-bait like you, and they certainly don’t sound as dumb as you do.

            If your grammar and punctuation is any indication, you should be the last person to point out IQ tests.
            Anyway, IQ tests measure directly a test-taker’s display of particular cognitive skills: size of vocabulary, degree of reading comprehension, facility with analogies, and so on. These are positively correlated with quality of education and parents education etc.

            In short, tests of general mental abilities do not exist, which I assume you would have known given your leisurely pursuits.

      But you’re quite the mental giant, certainly, if you don’t understand why IQ (the way you’ve just defined it) doesn’t actually measure what you think it measures.

      Why did these cops have to fabricate crimes in order for the people in question to be convicted of crimes? Please explain. Include in that explanation your official IQ so we can judge whether or not your opinion is valid. Clearly that’s how that works, right?

            That has been a subject of debate for over a century. It was Goulds argument in mismeasurement of men. Herrnstein and Murray then wrote the The Bell Curve in response. I’m not debating the validity of IQ as a measurement of men. I’m just saying blacks have lower IQ. I personally believe the data provided by Murray and Herrnstein compiled far outweighs people such as Gould. Apparently the APA does too, or so they would not have confirmed it in a public report.

          into low income areas, because those areas tend to be together, they go to a low income/budget school. Since poor people rarely
          Pay taxes or go to stores in the area they live (because food deserts), very little money comes into the school. Very
          Little money means limited resources. Limited resources mean lower quality of education.

        Wrong! Psychometrics can be a hobby just as anything else can. A hobby is something a person gets pleasure from. I enjoy reading books and articles on the subject.
        The numbers you claim to be obsolete have not changed. They don’t call them IQ test any longer because IQ test has negative connotations to some. We see that in the replies on this story. These days they use proxy test such as SAT, ACT, GMAT,LSAT,ASVAB,GRE, Aspire etc. The black-white gap still exist in these test just as they have always existed.
        I read mismeasurement of men over 10 yrs ago and Gould never denied the black-white gap.His argument was the validity of the test as a measurement of men. Murray and Herrnstein wrote The Bell Curve and compiled the data to support the thesis that IQ does have a correlation to life outcome in men. Both books acknowledged the black-white gap. The arguments were nature vs nurture and validity. I’m not debating anything other than the black white gap existed and still exist today. People can observe life around them and determine for themselves if it matters in the world around us.

          I won’t be proving my education level to you, Ser James, Knight of the true blood. I’d rather not have my white brethren targeting me for a shakedown.
          So I’ve taken, again, too much time on this page. Here’s the upshot. Where there are differences what is your suggestion? back to africa or find the cause? The sources you yourself have lately cited show the flexibility of testing when you look at the data with any care. The majority of recent data show that nurture is very important. The only thing your “data” have to do with this article, if true, is show evidence that the cruelty the officers involved and thousands more across the country have made it impossible for there to be a level playing field for black children. Something I witnessed my entire life growing up.

          Coupla’ things before I get back to trying to help *all* of humanity.
          1. Shouldn’t a person versed in IQ theory know that 100 is, by definition, dead average? A set point where 50% are above and 50% are below?
          2. The article you cite actually debunks pretty much everything you said right in the blasted ABSTRACT! (No, I’m not going to read further, busy doing real work)
          3. The fact that you subsequently found original sources doesn’t hide the fact that you started out citing a Neo-Nazi website. I hate ad hominem as much as the next hominem, but you are not a valued participant.
          4. Nobody should read the Bell Curve. It is 20 years old based on 40 year old theory.
          5. If you read Gould’s book you’d know what the analysis was and that it was only one part of a greater story of a priori bias in science. As the article states, Gould didn’t access the skulls for re measurement he analyzed the data and methodology. Those research assert (and appear to have proved) he was wrong in his conclusion… that is how science works.

            I previously stated 100 is the mean (average) IQ. By mathematical definition only one person alive has an IQ of exactly 100.Of course there is an infinite number of decimals could follow 99. If Murray and Herrnstein book is based on outdated data then Goulds is outdated because it was published about 12 or 13 years earlier. lol Does it really matter what link one accessed as long as the information is accurate? I substantiated its accuracy with other links.My information was compiled from more sources than The Bell Curve. I wasn’t referring to the book each time i mentioned “bell curve”. I was referring to a gaussian function that is commonly known as a bell curve. Of course you know that if you’re a scientist. I think i only referred to the book once as a rebuttal to mismeasure of men.

How many times must an IQ test be debunked and by how many Scientist before people like you give it up? Hell the IQ test was tailor engineered to benefit non blacks. It was revised several times when blacks were being tested with them during many phases of their current creation in California. And it is PROVEN that black children in elementary school in suburban schools perform on PAR with white children. Head Start comes to mind. But ONCE they leave the program and go BACK to terrible inner city schools those scores plummet.

      It’s hilarious that you sit there pretending the schools are equal…… equal in quality of teachers, equal in funding, or ANYTHING… How can they have higher intelligence when they often attend schools that don’t even have BOOKS!!!

Another good study is the Reardon and Galindo report ( You will find the black/white gap widened as they progressed in school. The students were in the same school and taught by the same teachers. I don’t know if schools in other areas lack books but schools in Alabama provided books for all students and the gap still existed. That’s quickly becoming a moot argument anyway. Most schools in Alabama are doing away with books. My granddaughter has no books at all this year. The books were loaded onto her computer by the school. My grandson has no books in his college classes either.

        It doesn’t have any connection at all; the commenter named “James” is simply attempting (and, sadly, succeeding to some degree) to distract readers from the focus of the story–corrupt, racist police engaged in illegal activities–by challenging a statement made only in passing.

        Don’t allow yourself to be diverted.

          First off FIX THIS SITE. Every time I want to reply I have to sign in again and again.

          If this happens with James, he is certainly being paid to do this shilling. Look at the number of hours he has posted.

          Actually, we should thank James. He has allowed many of us to refute the “Dumb Nagger” myth and point out exactly why people like him are the reason the IQs are lower.

          He has probably motivated us to organize a huge civil rights march in Dothan. Thank the gods for the 2nd Amendment so we can come armed in case the Klan dares show their wrinkled pink nutsacks.

          Cops, council, mayor, country commissioners should all be indicted, jailed and made to clean up and serve the black neighborhoods they forced blacks in Dothan to live. Kinda like…slaves. They like slavery lets give the whites of Alabama some of what they crave.

          Citizen: “Boy. Boy. Fetcha me a watah.”
          Disgraced Pig convict: “Yes sah!”

          So yes, thank James for allowing the truth to be told by so many others that his position was self mangled.

          James: only old white men use ‘lol’ anymore. Are you old? Your thinking is old, how about the body?

            You contradicted yourself in the same sentence. You claim that ya’ll refuted my assertion that blacks have lower IQ and then said people like me are the reason their IQ’s are lower. I’ve had people contradict themselves before but never in the same sentence that i can remember. LMAO

      • james

        December 2, 2015 at 11:48 am

        How does what happened 3 generations ago affect kids that have been educated in the same classrooms and by the same teachers? How can that account for the diversity that still exist not only in IQ scores but academic scores? That argument is moot. Not to mention IQ does not measure crystallized intelligence. It measures fluid intelligence.

      It is clear that if you do not know about other things in the story, you should be advised that what you comment on is not “IN THIS STORY”: i.e.;the IQ of blacks is not in the story. The story shows that white police officers aligned with racial hate groups, including the new Chief of Police Steve Parrish and the Current Homeland Security Director-Andy Hughes (former Sheriff of Houston County) oversaw racist, illegal planting of drugs and guns on young black males. Now, try to get someone to read the article to you if you are that challenged, so you might make a relevant comment or I am asking Jon to remove this idiocy from the blog so others who understand can stay focused and that this not be used to feed racist foolishness like that which you spew. Idiot Quotient is what IQ it stands for in cases where people get off topic to promote their idiocy in hops of detracting others from the real subject matter, like you did in your comment. Sure you have a higher Idiot Quotient than others, black or white. Learn to read, then comment on the subject matter, please. These are white men who are clearly racist,criminals whose behavior was told on by other white and black men and the idea that you want to defend this, whether you are black or white is simply idiotic. Blacks have always known that there were factions in the police force who engaged in illegal behavior – just read the Keith Gray case against the City of Dothan and the 74 page opinion where a federal judge mentions Steve Parrish’ name 38 times describing the environment in which this intelligent black man was forced to work in order to have a job at the Dothan PD. WOW. That poor treatment just came back to bite them all in the A–. Wonder why your IQ did not allow you to discover it sooner. The matter is clear to anyone who can read. I understand that you, showing such lowly intelligence are challenged in understanding the subject matter and hope that Jon will remove all of the ridiculous comments about, off topic comments and things that this article is not about so intelligent people can converse without the Idiot Quotient (IQ) of people like you included here. There is no sympathy for those who claim to be intelligent, but cannot read, but choose to promote racial hate and cover for criminal activities against anyone. Sorry, but that argument about IQ just fell through the cracks. It ain’t about that. Regardless of one’s intelligence, there is no reason for the criminals to be given badges and guns and called police, to make up crimes, plant drugs, and the DA to get paid for colluding with them. This is a clear Racketeering operation, among other high crimes. Get ready for the super long jail train to take them all away. Are you one of them; Goodbye!!!

        “The group has advocated for blacks to “return” to Africa, published that the civil rights movement is really a Jewish conspiracy, and that blacks have lower IQ’s . Both Parrish and Hughes held leadership positions in the group and are pictured above holding a confederate battle flag at one of the club’s secret meetings.” RThis was copied and pasted directly from the article. I admit the main topic of the story is not IQ but it was mentioned.

      The reason why blacks have a lower IQ is because it is hard to exist with a white pigs cowboy boot on their collective necks.

        Rick i am saying blacks have lower IQ. Apparently you agree with me judging by your last comment. You’re looking for causation with the majority of that comment. I also believe you’re confusing IQ with acquired knowledge (formal education).Your thesis is invalid when you consider blacks and whites have been educated in the same classrooms, by the same teachers for the past 50 yrs. In order to acquire knowledge one must first retain an IQ high enough to permit the acquisition of knowledge. This link might help you to better understand the concept….

My father completed college and then taught himself computers and programing, and owns a very successful networking and programing company. There is no credible study that reports these findings.

      Let’s accept what you are saying about black people and IQs.

      The numbers are AVERAGES. That does not tell you anything about the intelligence of an INDIVIDUAL person, be they black, white, or other.

      And I don’t know about you, but I live in AMERICA where we look at people, and recognize their (lack of) merit, as individuals.

      Finally, it doesn’t matter if the black person in question has an IQ of 85 or 185, a law enforcement officer who plants drugs is a criminal who belongs in jail for a very very long time. Let their families cry their eyes out – who cares? These cops made their decisions and now they have to live with the consequences. The black people in question had to live with consequences but had no choice in the matter.

      The article says “Specifically young black men who had clean records were targeted.” If these allegations are true (innocent unless proven guilty here in AMERICA), then this set of cop scum deserves NOTHING but hard jail time.

        eye-que, you comment is the most logical i have read. I totally agree that the bell curve is based on statistical analysis to derive a mean. Not ALL blacks are dumb just as not ALL whites are smart. I also concur with you on the alleged planting of evidence if in fact it did occur. Accusations alone do not guarantee guilt or convictions.

IQ test are culturally geared towards whites and also does not take into account that people of color do not share the same realities as whites. If you are trying to infer that whites are smarter than blacks then shame on you because the playing field for blacks are systematically design for setbacks.

      • james

        December 3, 2015 at 5:19 pm

        123 is a pretty good score. It places him about the 93 percentile range overall and probably in the 99.???? percentile range for black only depending on which test he took.

    • JohnMilton

      December 2, 2015 at 2:51 pm

      The sad part is that with the average IQ ranging from 80-120, police departments nationwide typically seek out candidates in the 80-100 range. Literate, but not greatly so. Intelligent enough to follow directions and obey orders, but not enough to compare those orders to the Constitution or even basic moral standards. This is why so many cops are daily willing to violate the Constitutional rights of almost everyone they meet – they’ve been told its ok by their superiors and when they are caught and publicly exposed as violating rights (even to the point of murder) they are reinforced by a blue-community atmosphere that says their actions were acceptable, or at least should be.

      Your statement is false. What you have stated is probably best described as a pseudo truth. It’s what most biased individuals fall victim to when they come into contact with information they do not understand. With no facts to back your statement you isolate correlations to suite your opinion. Let me explain…

      Let us take the numbers as true… blacks score 1 deviation point (15 points) lower than whites on I.Q. tests. While on the surface that may be of some truth; however your conclusion or assertion that whites are therefore more intelligent is unfounded or the basis that race even determines how someone does on a test is flawed at a fundamental level.
      1. I.Q. tests are actually used to predict how successful an individual may be in obtaining higher education (college degree)
      2. The correlation between race and I.Q. test score is not the same as the correlation between race and intelligence. Neither is the I.Q. score but that’s a completely different argument.
      3. Correlation never equals causation… anyone that has studied statistics knows this. The mitigating factors or confounding variables are not taken into account with raw data. i.e. If you take a survey on a college campus, you may find 89.9% of respondents are college students and have more than 10 college credits. Now to take that data and apply it to the overall population in that city/state is not statistically correct. So you can’t say that 89.9% of people in the state/city are college students and have 10 or more credits. In comparison that same study/survey done in a jail. The numer might be much lower. The same applies, you cant then take that data and apply it to a completely different population or extract non related evidence and make a valid conclusions. That is exactly what you are doing with the data you found. You might hear or see a study say controlling for x variables. That essentially means comparing apples to apples. To do this in regards the test scores would need to have the test takers be equal i.e. similar education, age (I.Q. scores take age into cosideration), etc etc. The independent variable would be race (black or white) the dependent variable the test scores. If you take a black person with a PhD and a white person with a PhD, and about the same age… their scores would/should be closer given they also have similar areas of study and GPA’s. That is the basis of calling your assertion false.

      • james

        December 2, 2015 at 7:28 pm

        Your thesis implies the average IQ of the nation is flawed by failing to select a diversity of test takers to provide data. Basically what you suggest is whites selected to take an IQ test have Phd’s and blacks selected have high school educations. I agree the only real way to get accurate data is by randomly choosing the participates. I have no idea how they pick the thousands of people that take the test in order to derive the mean and you don’t know either. I could argue the opposite. I could argue they choose only white high school students and black grad students to calculate the mean IQ. I guess the best way it to stand at the doors of Wal Marts across the country and randomly choose shoppers as they walk in the door as test participates. I suspect even that method would be somewhat jaded since the upper tiers of society doesn’t shop at Wal Mart. lol

      That link you provided says NOTHING about races being a rational behind lower IQ scores.

      Whites = wealthier families
      Blacks= historically and legislatively disadvantaged by racist law.

      By your own source, it clearly shows that black as a race is not an indicator of low IQ, but opportunity has EVERYTHING to do with I.Q. scores.

      Amazing that this sort of racist mendacity still exists. I’m sure that, with your bullshit made-up evidence of racial superiority, you can justify any length of hypocrisy imaginable.

      I call bullshit on the “black and IQ” thing, by the way, since whites ostensibly have all the power in society – yet they’re polluting and ruining the planet. Doesn’t sound smart to me.

      racists have been shown to have low iq. its funny how racists like to cite the collective iq of their race, as if theyre vicariously intelligent themselves. you arent, james. what other people achieve or are capable of has nothing to do with what you have achieved or are capable of. you are on your own. you have no collective stats to fall back on. youre a loser.

      Oh look, there goes the point! You have responded to this article by focusing on an issue it doesn’t even raise. This isn’t an article about IQ. IQ is simply irrelevant to the article. Why are you even discussing IQ?

      What it is about is police criminality on a relatively large scale. Having worked in law enforcement, and having investigated official misconduct, I can assure you that there have been many, many police officers who have committed these sorts of crimes. And the documentation is exactly the kind of documentation one would find in that time period.

      You are trying to change the subject. Which is why your comments are worthless.

      Hell, let someone mistreat you in a similar manner and your IQ will decrease as well. If that is the only way you can be competitive, then you have very low self esteem. You are only a mess.

      What the f*** is wrong with you? The fact that you’ve even written this shows that you missed the point of the article. You’ve got horrible reading comprehension.

      Your comment is reprehensible. A bunch of white cops railroad hundreds of young black men into prison, destroying their lives and disrupting the lives of those who care about them and the best you can do is some idiotic, b#llsh!t, irrelevant study about IQ. You sir, are beneath contempt.

      It figures that the only thing you pulled from this was iq info. Nevermind the rest. You’re a pathetic person. A coward. Continue to ignore the truth, you too will have your judgement day. Yes I’m a black man, an intelligent black man this will also stomp a bone out a pussy like you.

      This is the dumbest comment ever made. There was no excuse for those men to be convicted for no reason. Foolish white people who make the rules and tell the lies arrogantly,continue to believe that you are better than all other races. Whats funny is that the lies you tell are the ones that are destroying this country. Your hate for Blacks and Brown is your destruction. We don’t believe in you. We don’t trust you. We don’t want you in our lives. When war comes to this country we won’t help you fight. You are messy and evil and you will fall.”Let the Devil take your hand and “GOD” will make you pay!!!!!!

      James even though the data you provided is of no value to the topic at hand I will challenge you on the validity or usefulness of the research data. Here is the problem with the information you provided since we know African or Black Americans in the United States are not technically a separate race, but a social context in the United States your data is meaningless. African/Black Americans are on average are between 10% and 30% Caucasian (less than 1% Native American). Therefore, the data you provided to separate their intelligence from that of White counterparts is of no value since they are related to White Americans genetically. So you see Mr. James that Black and White Americans are cousins in the United States and for all the stupid fighting are closer than they know and really are family. I suggest you do a genetic test you may be surprised and find cousins that you never knew about.

      Even though I firmly believe your a troll I just wanted to point out the worthlessness of the research data you provided due to how genetically intertwined that Blacks and Whites are in this country.

      An argument that is irrelevant with respect to the purpose of the article.

      I’m black, but I’m a scientist (neuroscience and biochemistry – not that social science BS), so I’ll make this easy for you to understand. IQ is not a purely a function of race. IQ is a function of genetics AND environment, which includes factors like exposure to toxic chemicals and access to nutrition – things that are more likely to negatively affect blacks. Poorer areas are usually closer to industrial areas, which are affected by industrial pollution, and poorer people such as blacks are more likely to have poorer nutrition.

      Just these two factors alone affect blacks much more disproportionately than whites. There’s a lot more science behind my statements (, but you can Google my statements if you are suspect I’m wrong.

      Lastly, correlation is not causation, so the last statement is a blanket statement that is false as written. Blacks may perform at 8th grade levels upon high school graduation, but it is not solely because of lower average IQ than whites – there are a myriad of factors other than IQ that affect high school graduation rates for individuals and communities of persons.

      I will say that I hold no animosity towards you, but learn the data, how they were acquired, and their limitations before reciting them without proper context.

        As a fellow black person, I don’t want to give aid and comfort to James by starting an argument with you but I do stand up for the soft sciences. Hard sciences teach us how to build, measure and document but it is the soft sciences that seeks to understand WHY we build, measure and document. Sometimes our hard science brothers’ brains grow so large that it squeezes out their soul — empirical intelligence versus emotional intelligence. Social sciences are not BS. They are not a waste. They simply operate in that grey area that exists between black and white. Assuming the grey away doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. It simply means that it’s too hard to measure so it is better to simply ignore it. There is no loveometer, lustometer, joyometer or griefometer but love, lust, joy and grief are very real nonetheless.

        That said, James is a racist jerk who believes that any you do to a black person is OK, just because he’s black.

        Romell again you’re debating the cause of the gap. I don’t know the cause. If i were black i would want the cause to be genetic. Genetics would be out of ones control. Environmental is something one can control. Blacks should strive to change their culture if they feel it is the cause.

      Even if black people are drooling monkeys who can barely keep themselves from throwing their own poop, they don’t deserve to be framed for drug crimes.
