According to the local news here in Boston, Gates and Crowley have become quite friendly. They plan on meeting up again, possibly for a Red Sox game. Gates has joked about the incident while signing books on Martha's Vineyard, claiming that he'll get Crowley's kids into Harvard so long as Crowley doesn't arrest him again.
The way I see it, if these two can put this nonsense behind them, so should the rest of the United States, no?
I don't think so, dude.there was probable cause to arrest Gates for obstruction of justice.
I know dude. Bush commuted his sentence.Scooter Libby isn't in jail for obstruction of justice?
Crowley seized Gates when he unlawfully arrested him.LMFAO!!!!...Crowley didn't seize anything!
The false charge that Gates committed disorderly conduct by engaging in tumultuous behavior that cause public alarm.This is news to me. What exactly are you talking about this.. 'false charge'????
If the offense is a misdemeanor, the charging instrument is called an Information.?? "the filing of an information" WTF does that even mean?

Bottom line is, had Gates, a Harvard Professor, had been smart enough to to cooperate, this wouldn't have ever hit the news. But, no, Gates saw a chance to become a Civil Rights martyr and jumped in with both feet.
