Another day of testimony in the trials of Asha Burwell and Ariel Agudio, the two former UAlbany Students are accused of  being the aggressors on a CDTA bus at the end of January last  year. 

On Thursday, a UAlbany police detective was asked whether the "n" word had been used by people on the bus during the melee. 

Also the detective was asked whether the word "ratchet" was used by people on the bus.

Some believe the term "ratchet" is interchangeable with "ghetto" and often applied to people of color.
