    It was not. The 911 transcript proves that absolutely. She even went so far as to speculate that it was possible that the people forcing the door might be the lawful residents--she was unsure, which was why she made the 911 call.
    The 911 transcript only supports what was said when she called in to 911. It has nothing to do with what she subsequently told the police when interviewed face to face.


    I agree
    .

    It would have been even more classy had Gates sent Officer Crowley flowers as a thank you for putting his life on the line in defense of Gates' property.

    Perhaps. How classy is it of the peanut gallery to snark about Gates making a decent gesture towards a neighbor once all the bloviation had blown over?

    Gates does something nice and people want to criticize him for it--and for what? Just to bludgeon people into ennui with bats of political correctness?
