    I'd love it if this cop sued Obama for defamation. Can you imagine the circus? I'd tell Obama to shove that beer up his ***.

    Based on the 911 call, I think the cop isn't on particularly solid ground here.

    The 9-1-1 call stated the witness saw people breaking into a house.

    The officer arrives and sees men in a house with a broken front door, he asks for ID, and Mount Bigot explodes in his face.

    The cop did just fine and got to haul the bigot away to jail, too. What do you think he did wrong, show up or ask for ID?

    The cop should have invited the prof to sit down in his car and talk it over. That's what i would have done. I'd have said something like the following:

    Sir, i'm not here because of your skin color, or my skin color, or the skin color of your neighbors cat. I'm here because somebody called me because you weren't entering your house as normal people do 99.9% of the time. If you had seen somebody you don't know "breaking in," wouldn't you call the cops? It'd be your civic duty to do that, you know.

    I was concerned for your safety, and so i asked you about the other individuals. No, it's not my business who you have in your house, but as a police officer i want to make sure that you're safe, and that you are aware that there are others in your residence. What if i didn't ask you about the other men in your house, and just left, and then you, not knowing that you were being burglarized, went in and had harm come to you from those individuals? I asked you about the other people in your home, not to invade your privacy, but to ensure your safety. It's my job to determine whether you might be in harms way and to help you with that threat if it exists.

    You have convinced me that you live here. If i can't convince you that i was just doing my job, and not doing my job because of your race, then i'll have to live with that. But you need to get about your business and i need to get about my business. There's nothing to get excited about as i was just doing what i've been trained to do, and what i would have done with a person who was white, black, or any other color. Could you please treat me as if i was your own skin color, so that we can get past this accusation?

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

    I want to put this incident into the perspective of how a NORMAL non-arrogant, non-race baiting person would have handled the whole situation in less than five minutes:

    Cop: Sir, I am responding to a burglary call and need to see your identification.

    Individual: Why certainly officer. I am the owner. I was on a business trip and upon my return could not find my keys so the driver assisted me in getting in. Here you go.

    Cop: Thank you sir, if you don't mind I just need to call this in and verify that the information is correct.

    Individual: Not a problem and thank you for responding. There have been a lot of burglaries in the area recently and it is nice to know you guys are here checking things out.

    Cop: Here's your ID back sir. Thank you and we are sorry for disturbing you. Have a nice day.

    Individual: Same to you and thank you for your service officer.

    Good lord, the people on this forum attempting to defend the arrogant race baiting professor over an incident he created is stunning to say the least.

    Glad that people think the cop is in the right when he LIED about the caller identifying the potential suspect as black AND his own police department dismissed the charges.
