    Obama owes the police officer and his department an apology. period.


    This is not about right or left, but right or wrong. In this case, Obama was wrong.

    In your fantasy of the situation, sure. The evidence says otherwise.

    Gates had just arrived home to his Cambridge house from a trip abroad to find his front door stuck shut. As he and the driver who brought him from the airport tried to push it open, a passerby called police with a report of a possible break-in. Crowley arrived and demanded that Gates, now inside, show him identification. Crowley’s police report said Gates behaved belligerently when he questioned him, which Gates denied. Authorities dropped the charge Tuesday after it ignited accusations of racism.
    Call me stupid but where does race come into this?
    I sure as heck hope my police would do the same, i'd just show them the ID and move on.

    The gentleman screamed at the cops that the only reason they were questioning him was his blackness....

    Obama made a comment that had he lost the keys to the white house or something, that "he would be shot"....

    Again, everyone here is assuming the police never make mistakes or go overboard.

    I can only imagine if this had been your friend or relative arrested in their own home how the posts would be very different.

    That's the whole point, if you don't act like a suspect, the majority of the police won't treat you like one. How hard is it really to take the police at their word that they are following up on a disturbance call and say "my neighbor is mistaken, here's my I.D. and we're all good here."?

    Police arrested my friend, i helped them along and pointed out the door he was in. Better to abide by the rules than try and fight police.

    Bull****. He was simply stating a fact.

    Anyone not authorized to be on WH grounds can and would be shot.

    Just last week a man was killed for getting too close.

    If my relative turned a police question into an arrest or otherwise big deal I would laugh at them and let them marinate in jail for the night, same with my friends. A lawful order from a police officer is to be followed, and showing an I.D. would have ended it there, or even just stating he appreciated the neighbors concern but it in fact was his residence, or any variant of that.
