It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
OR, if the call does not specifically indicate there were two blacks breaking in, but the police report identifies them as two blacks and it turns out that indeed, they were two blacks, this is somehow wrong?
This begs the question; you're kidding me right?
Good lord; my 13 year old can form a more coherent argument than this.
Thanks for posting this Catz. Yes this puts a totally new spin. The caller seemed to imply that the 2 might actually live there. She stated suitcases. So now this brings us back to the police report. The lady stated she didn't speak with the cop, the police report states she did and that she said there were two black men with backpacks. So now is the police report an error or did the cop who filed it make a false claim?
Also on Fox News, Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano had this to says that the law “allows an arrest for being disorderly if you are in public. … So if Professor Gates was arrested because of the words he used to police inside his house, on the front porch or on the front lawn, it was an improper arrest.”
"The law says, unless [a police officer] witnesses a felony…or unless he has a piece of paper from a judge—a search warrant or an arrest warrant—saying “you can go in that house,” he can’t go in the house. So when Professor Gates said “no you can’t come in,” and the police went in anyway [the police] violated the federal Constitution."
Raw Story Fox legal analyst: Gates arrest was improper
There is plenty of precedent in the supreme court regarding the castle doctrine. Without the officer witnessing a crime the officer would have needed permission to enter Gates' house. Once again the arrest was unlawful and even this judge has stated so.
