    The charge was dropped because it was bull****. Not because these cops were racist. They arrested him on "being an asshole to the cops in public." Unfortunately for them, this guy had a the resources to call them on their nonsense.

    Folks who can't take some name calling have no business working in law enforcement.

    here is the page of the police report in question, thus far Crowleys account has been 100% accurate.

    How do you know it's "100% accurate?" Because the police officer says so? You have his account and you have Gates account. Personally I put more stock in the officers report, but I will not go so far as to say it's 100% accurate because I was not there and there isn't nearly enough information. I've read the entire report and even if everything in the report is accurate, the officer failed to document enough information to actually uphold his reasoning for the arrest. It's actually a very poor report for the case he was stretching to make.

    The police department admitted they were wrong in a public statement, that the incident was regrettable, and not one of their better moments. You don't do that when you are right.

    Gates was an asshole, but that is not a crime.

    Your points are well taken. My personal belief is that the police report is 100% accurate because, even reading the report, I concluded that the arrest was questionable. I didn't see the police officer attempting to exaggerate facts to substantiate the arrest under any circumstances.

    Thanks for posting the apology in the other thread (or was it in this thread?).

    2 asides:
    (1) I was born in Cambridge, MA.
    (2) What kind of scholar says he wants to talk to "your momma"?

    The picture cooborates the officers statement, the officer on tv today has never changed his story. and in the report he makes notes of numerous civillian and police witnesses... I think that to me, indicates who is telling the truth here.






    Gates was an asshole, but that is not a crime.

    Breaking and entering, (which if your own home is not a crime but...) failing to show ID, he could have been arrested on the spot for both of that given the fact that he did break and enter, and failed to prove his identity ...


    Furthermore, he was warned about disorderly conduct. Now I might agree being an asshole to a cop should not be illegal, but fact is as it stands now disorderyly conduct falls under this perview..


    Imagine this was some college kid instead of big shot bigot race baite professor? DO you think the kid would get the same response of "cooler heads shouldove" response?

    I can't help but remember that thread with the lady who claimed a black man had tackled her and carved a "B" into her face because he was an Obama supporter and she had a McCain/Palin shirt on(or bumper sticker or something like that). Lerxst cautioned everyone to wait until more facts surfaced before believing her story. He was attacked for it and later vindicated when it turned out she had done it herself. Just sayin'.

    How sad that this raving racist black lunatic can treat the men in blue who were responding to a call to protect his property like an asshole.

    Perhaps this is just more proof of why the education system in this country is in such a pathetic state, you have assholes like this teaching our youth.

    The man was a raving lunatic and deserved to be bitch slapped for it. The ultimate irony would be delightful if next time there is a call for a potential burglary at his house; the cops just ignore it or get there REAL late.

    The cops almost always get there real late. How would anyone be able to tell the difference?

    So what is the process when you confront someone within a house where a burglary is reported?
