First Look: Game Passed Around Alamance Sheriff's Office

BURLINGTON, N.C. – Within hundreds of pages of evidence from the the U-S Justice Department's suit against Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson – are pictures of a video game an Alamance County Sheriff's Department Captain e-mailed coworkers. The game's called Border Patrol and the screen says - "there is one simple objective - keep them out at any cost!" Them being labeled - Mexican nationalist, drug smuggler and breeder.

You can see how the player targets someone headed into the U-S towards the Welfare office. And the end of the game shows a racial slur to find out how many people the player killed.

The feds say this message was included in the email with the game:

"Makes you feel better anyway, I did my part today, I kept several from coming over!!!"

The Justice Department says the Sheriff failed to discipline the worker behind this e-mail. And the feds claim that's just one example of what's called "a total lack of discipline for expressing anti-Latino sentiment."

Of course we'd love to know what the Sheriff has to say about this, but his department is still unable to comment because of a court order.
