    Nowhere did I say that cops are infallible and should always be believed. Nowhere did I say that cops should be correct until they are proven wrong. I'm talking about the incident itself. Spare me the bull**** crap about innocent until proven guilty. You aren't the legal system and are capable of having an opinion about the incident and siding with one side more than the other. I'm asking you specifically why you side with Gates when, as you say, the cop is no more or less credible than anyone else. Do you get it now?

    So you have nothing to back up your absurd "straw man" claim. Gotcha.

    Try looking up the meaning of words before you actively use them in discussions. It will help to avoid further confusion.

    Okay, let me make certain I understand the NEW standard for racism; if you are an officer called to investigate a break-in and it is a black man who happens to live there and left his keys inside, and when you accost the "suspect" not knowing if he is the legitimate owner, and then that owner refuses to provide you ID and starts cussing and yelling at you claiming you are a racist, the cop is a racist?

    This ass-hole probably went on an idiotic rant and the officers, being human, could only take so much of this moronís abuse and correctly arrested him for interfering with their ability to do their jobs.

    Solution: next time you see a black man breaking into the home, ignore it and move along. We can't have the President of the USA thinking the police are idiots for assuming that someone breaking into a house actually owns it.

    Here's a bet; if it had been a white guy, they would have acted the same way except it would not have been NEWS! You see, white males do not have the same rights as a black or Hispanic male.

    No, it means you can't read. Not my problem.

    Try coming at least a little prepared next time you paint yourself into a corner.

    And by prepared I don't mean repeatedly using lame insults over and over again.

    I think it's obvious that this isn't a case of racism. That seems to be the knee-jerk reaction of almost every story involving an African American and the police. Did the cop act inappropriately? Perhaps. I think it's obvious that a cop doesn't have to be racist to act inappropriately. By the sounds of it, Gates didn't exactly try to diffuse the situation. I don't think it warrants getting arrested, but that's just my opinion.
