    Gates says it's time to 'move on' from his arrest

    Link
    My Way News - Gates says it's time to 'move on' from his arrest

    Quote from article(Black Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. says he's ready to move on from his arrest by a white police officer, hoping to use the encounter to improve fairness in the criminal justice system and saying "in the end, this is not about me at all.")

    In the end Mr. H.L.Gates this is precisely about you.
    If you can possibly learn that in such an incident where you were (quite correctly) arrested.
    It is to be hoped that you are able to tone down your rhetoric and supply the information requested by the Police person without calling into the conversation remarks concerning the Policeman's Mother.

    I believe it's possible that this racist wants to move on because someone who is actually intelligent got to the dummy and told him he was open to the law suit hinted at by the Sgt. who busted the mouthy jerk.
    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.

    I'll be he is ready to move on, now that a black police officer made him look like a fool.

    Gates has figured out that he let his mouth overload his ass. He oughta be glad he went into asshole mode in Cambridge. Anywhere else and he might got his ass kicked.

    Uh, yeah, by the cops. If he'd pulled some crap like that in a place like New Orleans, he would have been carried to jail. Not only would he have been charged with disorderly conduct, but resisting arrest, assault on an officer and whatever else they could think of on the way to the district barracks.

    Im sure everyone here would be perfectly reasonable if the police arrested them in their own home.

    I would. Because my rational response would create a happy ending. Besides, I'm not so stupid that I would give a cop a reason to charge me with a crime.
