    Jesus Christ--like Gates didn't do anything wrong here.

The agents were brandishing their pistols as they motioned the man to get out of the rear of the limosine. Sgt Crowley had this to say about the situation, "It's a dangerous world out there, people have to know their place."

    I guess O believes the power of the presidency will protect him and make the common man crumble.

    Foolish is as foolish does.

    Hats off the the officer for holding his ground, and his colleagues that are setting the record straight about this man's character.

    It's high time Obama admit HIS remarks were stupid, he was badly infomed and apologize profusely.

    .
    Obama spoke for an hour without teleprompters, answering questions on health care that would have baffled George Bush. In responding to the question about Gates, Obama rose to the defense of a friend. He lost his cool. It was a mistake for him to make a judgement.

    He did use a teleprompter, are you always dishonest or do you just shoot from feelings?

    the whole thing was scripted.

    And in other news, you are a bigot. Way to shoot your credibility on any subject to hell. Maybe stormfront forums would be better suited for you?

    Oh, Gates is eating this up. We both know he falls short, but the nodding from black members of the audience I saw when they showed Gates on some talk show about how he was the victim of racism made me want to puke. Yes, racism occurs, but not in this instance.

    Actually it did, Gates saw a white cop and use that fact to cause a scene.

    ....and what did Obama come up with during his hour without teleprompters?

    The President of the United States basically called our police officers "stupid".

    'COOLER HEADS DID NOT PREVAIL'

    In announcing that charges would be dropped Tuesday, police blamed both sides for escalating the conflict. "You had two human beings reacting to a set of circumstances and cooler heads did not prevail," said Cambridge police spokeswoman Kelly Downes.

    "It was not Professor Gates' best moment and it was not the Cambridge Police Department's best moment."

    "I think both parties were wrong. Our position is race did not play a factor."

    JOINT STATEMENT

    The city, the police department and Gates issued this joint statement just before noon:

    "The City of Cambridge and the Cambridge Police Department have recommended to the Middlesex County District Attorney that the criminal charge against Professor Gates not proceed. Therefore, in the interests of justice, the Middlesex County District Attorney's Office has agreed to enter a nolle prosequi in this matter.

    "The City of Cambridge, the Cambridge Police Department, and Professor Gates acknowledge that the incident of July 16, 2009 was regrettable and unfortunate. This incident should not be viewed as one that demeans the character and reputation of Professor Gates or the character of the Cambridge Police Department. All parties agree that this is a just resolution to an unfortunate set of circumstances."
    *insert profound statement here*
