    It can be.

    Police may use a disorderly conduct charge to keep the peace when a person is behaving in a disruptive manner, but presents no serious public danger.

    This should put to rest the BS about the arresting officer being the racist.
    In this story there are two racists Obama and Gates.
    Obama should be forced by public pressure and opinion to apologize on National TV.
    Not to be ironic, but this "story" is the same kind of race-baiting nonsense that the Harvard snob was engaged in.

    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.

    fortunately, we are still a republic, and each state is different.

    a generic link regarding disorderly conduct isn't really cutting it.

    Not to mention that the officer in question stated that he believed he was dealing with a home-owner after presented with Gates' idea, yet continued to escalate the situation. Gates was right in refusing the officer entry to his home; under US law, officers CANNOT demand entry to your home without a warrant. Good on the professor for exercising the few rights Americans still have regarding privacy and property.

    Source:
    Charges dropped against Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr.; arrest was 'regrettable'
    I agree that the Sgt's opinion differs from that of his employer, but I disagree with Gates refusing the officer entry. The officer most certainly had every right to enter the home without Gates consent given the nature of the 911 call. He thought he was investigating a burglary in progress.

    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.

    FIrst of all, I am addressing the general statement that people can yell all they want if they are on their own property.

    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.

    Irony. This article does not help. When you point out that a black man agrees with white man cop, all you are doing is playing the same race card our president did and this professor did.

    And it's that first element that screws Crowley's case. He never proved Gates had purpose to alarm the public nor did he substantiate his claim that there was a member of the public that was actually alarmed. His crappy report was very transparent and it cost him the case.
