    How do you know they're "coming out of his house"? They're on the porch, but you don't know how long they've been there or if they decided to take him back up there FROM the sidewalk.

    Nobody actually gets arrested for yelling at a non cop outside of their home.

    This is simply an example of a cop enjoying the power they hold over people. If cops weren't such sensitive little pricks, they wouldn't be hated so much.
    The statement is not true. Ive seen many arrests of Disorderly Conduct made when there is a dispute and one turns very angry and violent at the other person and making an arrest is the easy solution because it removed one half of the problem, and thus the problem no longer exists.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I call hyperbole based on the bold text.

It was a bull**** arrest and obviously retribution for the professors loud, obnoxious behavior. But in this country we still have free speech. I got called every name in book on multiple occasions, but I didn't have to take anyone to jail over it. Calling a cop a racist is not a crime. Yelling in your own home is not a crime. Obama is HUGE ****ING MORON for getting involved and making comments on this issue.

    Sometimes discretion is the better part of valor. Our President talks too much.
    A police officer should never be reprimanded or suspended for doing his job.

    If the man violated a law, regardless of whether you think the law should be enforced or if it was necessary, and the officer decided to act within his authority to enforce said law, then there should not be any reprimand or suspension.

    Cop who arrested black scholar is profiling expert
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    I would contend that someone who is yelling obscenities at the top of their lungs is 'verbally violent', or on the edge of becoming physically violent.

    wasting time/money on arresting this perosn was not doing their job, it was filling their enormous egos.
