The officer vs gates

Is this The ultimate clash between an ultra liberal and a conservative????

If the police report is true...(and there WAS witnesses) ..I think the officer
showed amazing restraint. If I was an officer I would have been tempted
to TAZE the guy if he started name calling me...even if Gates was on his own property!!!

I hate people, why is everything white on black racist. but lets not forget what happened in Akron OH, were a group of black people acted a white guy and his family in his home yelling racial slurs, was not a hate crime..... and obama saying something on tv was stupid, just shows how smart that clown is.

I Like how Obama referred to Gates as his good friend, really shows a good reflection on our President. You can yell all you want at an officer for doing his job, but apparently its the officer who is is acting dumb, what a bunch of bull****.

I agree the officer did a great job and should go to his grave without ever giving an apology for this. If Obama and the rest of the black people in the US will read the 1st paragraph of the police report then they would understand why this went down the way it did. The officer clearly stated why he was there and who he was then asked for Gates to come out on the porch and speak to him in which he replied "no I will not" boom end of story right there the rest of the report means nothing. Then on top of that has to throw in "this is happening cause I'm a black man in America" WTF is that? Its not because your black its because you won't tell me who you are which means to me your a possible perp. If he would have simply produced his id and not his I'm a prominent black scholar Harvard id card which only gave his name then none of this would have ever happened. This jerk wanted this to go down this way so he could get this publicity and start all this drama to furthur elevate his status in the scholastic community. AND SHAME ON OBAMA FOR THE UNEDUCATED REMARKS HE MADE!!! These people thats right I said these people say racism is alive and well??? Its only because they refuse to let it die and keep throwing gas on the fire. The most powerfull person in the nation is BLACK for cryin out loud !!! I'm gonna end with saying these black scholars are the most racist people there are because they're so hung up on preaching about opression, slavery & racism and its a shame.

This is pure BS. This is the worse kind of profiling there is. Just because ANYONE is spotted climbing through a window, doesn't mean they are all bad. You can't stop criminals on no more info than that. I think that congress should overhaul the justice system. Then it'll really work.

Are you saying that the concerned nieghbor calling the cops becuase she saw some suspicious looking men pushing the door in with their shoulder wasn't enough to check the place out? I hope you were being sarcastic....
