    His job was to establish if there was a Breaking and Entering taking place. Once that was established..he should have walked...no matter what. Unless he was phycially in danger.

    He certainly should be humble enough to go to the Whitehouse if invited and admit his faults just as others will..If not he will look like that arrogant ass that he has already proven himself to be.


    wow, just wow.

    It's really hard to believe some of the people on this site and in America today.

    One has to look no further than here to see why our nation is in the mess it's in.

    232 years ago you'all would be in favor of keeping the British in power,why rock the boat,pay the tax,don't worry be happy.

    A lot of good people gave their lives for the freedoms we have today,and most people today,would squander it away cheaply.

    I think that police abuse the disorderly conduct charge to arrest those that anger them. I have many police friends, and they have told me many times that people that piss them off are arrested under such charges all the time.

    It was false arrest...the white cop needs to apologize to Gates.

    The cop should have walked away as soon as it was established that Gates was in his own home.

    I would go and explain to him how much I didn't appreciate his words.

    Gates did nothing illegal. He acted abominably but not illegally.

    If it was false arrest why hasn't the cop been disciplined? Also, if it was false arrest why did the IA people find that he acted dutifully and within SOP per his Department?

    Cause it wasn't, you're ****ing speculating to make the white guy who was harassed by two black racists to be the bad guy in this whole ordeal.

    Well played, well played sir.
