    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.
    In this particular case, there were how many police ?
    How many Gates ?
    Obstruction of "justice" ??
    What "justice" ?
    If I were Gates, I'd be very angry, and very embarrassed...and I'd still expect to be treated with respect, not as a common criminal.
    We need better police...

    I heard a caller on Errol Lewis' morning show say she knew Gates over 30 years, and saw him fly off on someone before. She said he's a "hothead".

    In the court of public opinion only extreme racists came down on his side and even that began to go away when Obama was inundated with with messages pointing out that he, Obama was also a racist.
    What GATES did was very bad indeed and he is getting his appropriate smacking around. The way that pres. Obama responded was foolish, inappropriate, and nnot all that smart at te monent in time. Yet let us be honest and serious here for a change what Pres. Obma said was hardly "racist". GMAB !!!

    Let's be serious what Gates did was stupid. What the police did was apparently an over -reaction to GATE'S OVER-REACTION.

    You had two guys swinging their dicks at each other. Never get in a dick-fight with a cop.

    He was acting like a common criminal, why shouldn't he have been treated like one?

    Where is it written in law that one citizen must be arrested by only one cop?

    No he wasn't. He was acting like an asshole. Get your facts straight.

    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..
    The police didn't over react, hence they were not wrong.

    Whacking that racist pig in the head with a "baton", that would have been appropriate...but over-reacting.

    Gates was wrong. No doubt about that.

    He's a racist bigot, he's almost always wrong.

    The cops didn't do anything wrong.

    The cop that arrested Gates was an instructor for Cambridge PD's "racial profiling sensitivity" training program.

    There was nothing to be 'sensitive' about. Gates was behaving in the vile vulgar public behavior one expects from racists, and was arrested for creating a public disturbance.

    Sure they did. They arrested a man for committing a crime with no victim where a victim is required.
