    You really think he needed to be arrested to prove that?

    Or there would be an even bigger media cluster**** and cries of police brutality. Be glad that did not happen.

    The racist bigot dumb **** was arrested because he broke the law.

    All he had to do to avoid getting arrested was obey the law. Because he was a self-important and otherwise totally irrelevent Hahvahd perfessor in charge fo a racist department, he had to prove his manhood to himself by browbeating a white cop.

    It didn't work to well, and now even his pal the Messiah is telling him to drop it.

    I'd say the cop won the battle.

    Naturally his promotions have halted, but he was still in the right in this case.

    He needed to be arrested because he was creating a public disturbance and he was refusing to control himself.

    It's against the law to be disorderly in public, and that's what that boy was doing.

    Terms like "acting disorderly" are a bit to vauge for my liking.You think this cant be abused?

    I bring ya back to the idea people should be arrested in the public interest i dont see this in this situation.The police should of let this go.

    Doesn't matter.

    It wasn't abused in this case.

    So be done with it already.

    The police were doing their job.

    The race baiting bigot college professor should have behaved in a manner consistent with his age, his education, and his position in the community, instead of acting like some kind of stereotypical abused welfare mammy.

    Since he insisted in behaving as an out-of-countrol raving possibly dangerous fool...in public, he was treated EXACTLY like ANYONE else would have been treated.

    You're merely protesting the fair treatment of the asshole and the bigot.

    Do you think that Gates needed to raise all that hell just to prove he lived there?

    Personally, I think he should have been arrested for obstruction of justice for interferring with an ongoing investigation.

    How can we expect the cops to do their jobs effectively if they let it go everytime somone raises hell at them, because they feel they're not having their asses kissed in the manner they think they deserve.

    The police were wrong for over-reacting, and for taking action based on cruise control rather than rational thought.
    But Gates also reacted "wrong" -, IMO, he has that right as he was on his own property.
    Have the Cambridge police ever had any sensitivity training ?? or is this even possible...similar to "ethics" training to American executives..
