    BINGO!

    I've said all along that this case wasn't about racism. Its about the arrogance of police officers who feel that they have the right to do whatever they want and GOD FORBID that anyone question them, yell at them, not become submissive to their unlimited authority or deny them unlimited respect.

    Oh Lawwwwrrrrdd... I can't imagine that..

    The horrors!

    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Just to be clear....not all police. The vast majority of the police that I deal with daily are very good and hardworking people. Unfortunately, it are the pompous assholes who's arrogance and attitude know no bounds that make the rest look bad. Cops should take it upon themselves to help weed out the bad ones. Unfortunately, the code of silence prevents it.

    of course most of us are smart enough to treat them with kid gloves.

    That's nowhere close to the point I was making, because I think Gates should have been charged with obstruction of justice for interdicting an on-going investigation.

    But, ultimately, what this case has done, was send a clear message to a very non-racist white cop that no matter how hard to he tries to treat everyone the same, it's never going to be good enough; so why should he give a ****? Creating another racist is all they accomplished.

    What....treat everyone like assholes? niiiiice.

    BTW....the investigation was over. The cop should have simply left the man's house when he realized that no crime had been committed.

    Unfortunately his ego got in the way.

    Gates's obstruction started before the investigation ended. Not only that, but Gates never proved that that was his residence. School ID cards don't show a person's home of record.

    Unfortunately his ego got in the way.
    And Gates is totally blameless?

    Did I say that? I think they both were hotheaded and let their emotions get the better of them. Bottom line though...no crime was committed and Gates was in his own house.

    The biggest mistake the cop made was when he escalated by putting the chip on his shoulder and calling Gates outside to knock it off.
    A professional cop would have walked away.

    No, it was Gates that escalated the situation. All he had to do was shut-up. But...of course...he wasn't going to pass up a chance to make a big racist show out of it.
