    Yes, something happened that shouldn't have happened. Gates should have kept his mouth shut because no insult was offered by the police, the officer was merely doing his job.

    Gates either decided to take his juvenile frustration out on the whitey that arrived, or he decided to create a scene to deliberately prompt an arrest to provide material for his next propaganda project.

    But, EVERYTHING that happened happened as a result of Gates' deliberate choice of actions, and nothing would have happened if Gates had been emotionally older than a ten year old spoiled brat.

    Let's make sure we know where the blame belongs.

    With Gates.

    So what you've done is merely latch onto some bogus protect-the-asshole-bigot-racist argument that has no legal merit and no rational basis, and you're going to hold firm to that because you know that since no citizen complaint is necessary, no citizen complaint is going to be filed, especially not since the charges have already been dropped.

    In other words, you're being dishonest.
    crimes need victims in my book.

    That's not dishonest at all.

    the cop didn't like being talked down to, so he trumped up charges and wasted taxpayers dollars when he should of of just left.

    Yeah, like I said, just in case you want to pretend you didn't understand them, most disorderly conduct charges are dismissed.

    Since the police did nothing wrong, they haven't opened anyone to a civil lawsuit for any reason.

    The Department or Officer Crowley should countersue charging Gates with stupidity and racism, both of which should be civil offences.

    But you did open a third possibility, that Gates deliberately provoked this incident to play the lawsuit lottery.

    There's also the book he'll writing about this.

    So your suggestion that Gates did it for purely monetary purposes is valid.

    so when a cop supports another cop - that's just being honest.

    but when a black mayor support some black guy - that's because of bias.


    pathetic!

    I'm done with you. When you return from your trip to Uranus back to the real world, let us know, okay?

    most cops abuse their powers with trumped up charges - this is a common one.
