2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
Oh, a black man says it wasn't racist so that makes it so!
I don't need a minority to validate my opinion. I know there was nothing racist about this arrest. Silly article.
I absolutely disagree with the arrest for a multitude reasons, but the officer was well within his right to enter the residence, demand Gates I.D., and even handcuff him during the contact based upon all the circumstances.
I posted the Massachusetts law yesterday. It's written very archaicly. You can keep saying the arrest was wrong. I'll feel differently. You use the mayor as your rationale for saying it was wrong. I'll use the Cambridge Police Commissioner (who likely knows a teeny tiny bit more about the law than the mayor) for my position.
