A white police sergeant who is president of the St. Louis Police Officers Association was awarded $620,000 in a reverse racial discrimination suit Wednesday.
A federal jury made the award to Sgt. David Bonenberger, who had sued in January 2012. The civil suit alleged that he was passed over for a leadership post at the city Police Academy. It claimed that academy director, Lt. Michael Muxo, told Bonenberger he shouldnt bother to apply for the assistant director opening. Muxo told him that the job was going to a black woman, the suit said.

Not ‘reverse discrimination’. Discrimination.
Just as long as the taxpayer pays the damages.
Appeal filed as we read.
And no dogs were shot in the process.
Good. Merit, not RACE, should determine promotions.
Glad to see the RACIST system beaten back this time.
It seems that in the last thirty years a great many women and minorities were appointed either chief of police or fire chief over more qualified white males who deliberately passed over.
Lt. Muxo is an idiot...
Way back in 1974 I applied for a job at an electric utility company. I was told they had to hire a woman and a black before they would consider a white man.
same thing happened when I applied at Cal State San Marco, CA around ‘93. Nice girl at the desk looked at my resume and sighed, then said “Too bad your not black, or a woman.”
I thanked her for her honesty then got a job I’m still at a company for whom I still work today.
Good. Time for some junkyard dog lawfare against the Left. Fight every battle to the death.
