Either way, the arrest was a bad and he should be reprimanded.
You are wrong on this one.
I don't know how many more straws you have to reach for at this point.
No, I am quite right.You are wrong on this one.
You have not proven he had purpose to cause an annoyance to them. That is the element of the crime. And I don't care what he was saying, whether it was ignorant or not is irrelevant. Nothing he did violated an actual Massachusetts law.
I'm not reaching, I'm reading the law and applying it the man's actions.I don't know how many more straws you have to reach for at this point.

And let me reiterate...Gates is a loud mouthed, race baiting douche bag. But he shouldn't have been arrested.
And Obama should have kept his big mouth shut.
Again, I stated that a reasonable person does not need to yell and repeat the same message over and over through normal communication.
The fact that he came outside to yell and scream the same message over and over and not stop yelling and calm down when asked to do so shows that he had the intent to cause a disturbance, which he was doing.
