This report was not from "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" -- it is from America - November 13, 2008. These were not Death Threats nor a racial slur - so I guess criticizing Obama on your personal time is a crime. - he is not even in yet and we are starting to see evidences of our Freedom of Speech being ripped away...
"Derogatory remarks toward President-elect Barack Obama made on a social networking Web site are now the subject of an internal police investigation.
A police department employee claims the statements were made on the MySpace pages of two Durham officers.
"There's no exact words that were said," said Police Chief Jose L. Lopez Sr. in a telephone interview Wednesday from San Diego, where he is attending the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference. "It wasn't a racial slur, but we're still investigating it"
Lopez said even though the remarks were made on a personal Web page, the comments could be a violation of the policy." from: http://www.newsobserver.com/news/durham/story/1292635.html
