Mass. Cop Fired for Slurring Red Sox Player
July 26, 2012
A Massachusetts mayor has fired a police officer accused of directing a racial slur at Boston Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford during a baseball game.
Leominster Mayor Dean Mazzarella says Officer John Perrault's comments and actions show he's unfit to serve on the police force, reports the Associated Press/ESPN.
Perrault has been on paid leave since he called Crawford a "Monday" before a July 5 minor league game in Manchester, N.H. The word was popularized in a Russell Peters stand-up routine at Def Jam.

So, if you never heard of this slur, does it mean it's bad?
A Monday? derived from a comics' stand up routine? Seriously? and he lost his job over it?
What a bunch of bread eaters! Too much PC!

That mayor is depriving a village somewhere of its idiot. I still don't understand how a day of the week can be a slur. Regardless, it is obvious that this town doesn't deserve Officer Perrault. I hope that he's quickly hired by a jurisdiction with a spine.

Bob and HankG I understand your comments. However their is a lot more to the story. Its not the first time, It was the N word and he flashed his badge when an officer came over to talk to him. The Mayor made a comment that is would have been a different road if he kept the badge in his pocket. My position is he should no better and keep his comments to hinself. You are not a idiot kid your a Police Officer your actions are or should be above and better than Joe Citizen. I hope he learned a lesson just because you have a piece of tin does not give you right to mouth off and act like an Jackass.
