    The police are not responsible for who calls what in to them. They are responsible for responding and investigating.

    If the police respond and the act is still occurring it is their job to investigate.
    If the individual refuses to identify himself, thats his own damned fault.
    I have already stated very clearly that I do not fault the cop. I've shown that the man provided identification. Essentially, I don't disagree with you at all, nor have I said anything that would indicate disagreement.

    Re: Top scholar Gates arrested in Mass., claims racism

    Here's a question for ya.....

    "Henry Louis Gates Jr., the nation's pre-eminent black scholar..."

    What the "F" does that mean? Pre-eminent black scholar?

    Is there a pre-eminent white scholar.

    Is there a pre-eminent muslim pos scholar?

    Is there a pre-eminent Asian scholar?

    What about a pre-eminent Polish-Chinese scholar?


    Bottom line, from his action I would say he is far from a pre-eminent anything.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    I think you already know that they just couldn't leave that part out.

    They woulda put the rest of that crap, too, but it didn't apply. Everything, 'cept, "Polish", because Pols are just another version of white boy.

I have been witness to events with which the corresponding police reports did not, well, correspond.
    We are all well aware of numerous instances when police reports are fabricated or inaccurate, and we are all well aware of instances of institutionalized racism within police departments. I'm not calling the cops liars. I'm not calling them idiots. But I'm certainly not calling professor Gates those things either. I wasn’t there.
    I got the joy of seeing a fudged police report on myself. Got a DUI and totally cooperated. When I was in court the report said I was belligerent, resisting arrest and yelling at the cops. Never happened.

    Racism is not that good no matter who is doing it.

    Besides.....

    "But it's not a reason to grandstand about so called racism against white people.... "

    Where did I even suggest or imply such a thing? Stop reading into others statements, your assumptions and your prejudices.

    Don't tell me, tell him. It wouldn't even be a story if he wasn't being a cry baby about it.

    It's been my experience, that if you don't break the law, the cops can't screw with you.
