    Sergeant at eye of storm says he won't apologize

    Crowley himself, speaking to the Globe yesterday and again last night in Natick, said he will not apologize and asserted, “I am not a racist.’’

    Crowley’s police union issued a statement saying it had reviewed the arrest of Gates and expressed “full and unqualified support’’ for his actions.

    You know, when some white people are accused of being racist, they will say "I know a black guy" or "I have a black friend", which usually makes the situation worse. However, in this case, the police officer's actions over the course of a lifetime prove that he does not have a racist bone in his body. Not only did he grow up with black kids, some of whom are friends to this day, but he is also the officer who attempted to save the life of a Cambridge University basketball player who collapsed on the court, and later died. Are his actions that of a racist? Hell no. What we witnessed with this story was an act of race baiting by the college professor. Morale of this story? Black people can be racists too.

    The professor was simply entering his own home when police descended on him. How did he "bait" them?

    According to the police report, the professor did not identify himself at first, and began accusing the officer of racial profiling, although the reason the officer was at the home was because of a neighbor who had called the police.

    Good. It's about damn time somebody stood up to these PC thugs. I'm sick of the "progressive" authoritarians who insist on bludgeoning the rest of society with their BS victim mentality.

    Re: Sergeant at eye of storm says he won't apologize

    So far all we have is the police officers side of the story, so it's odd that the professor is so quickly labeled the race baiter and troublemaker.

    How many people here would be upset if the police came up to your door demanding ID?

    Was an arrest really the best way to handle this?

    This was a friend of Obama's, are you guys really saying you wouldn't take your friends side if the cops had arrested them in their own house?

    Depends on the situation. If a cop were at my door, I would be following his lawful orders instead of calling him names.

    I think all of this has been completely blown out of proportion. Gates should just let this rest.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    The professor did not immediately tell the cops he lived there? Shouldn't that have caused them to back off at least enough for a civil conversation, where they say something like "Oh, sorry, we got a call from a neighbor. If you could just show us some ID we'll be on our way." No, they continued to treat him like a crack dealer looking for the silverware.

    Re: Sergeant at eye of storm says he won't apologize

    Why should he apologize? I'm not one to normally take the side of the cops, but I don't see how what they did was wrong. They had a report of a break in, they went to check it out. The individual whom answered the door was combative and didn't identify themselves as the homeowner. That's it.
