He was cognizant enough to gather 2 pieces of ID and call Harvard-he wasn't afraid or confused.


He had a hard on for a white police officer.

Police in America have too much power, it's about time they were cut down to size.

No, it's not, it's why a majority of "disturbing the peace" arrests get thrown out.

It's pretty common for people's heart rates to increase while being pulled over for a minor moving violation, I think if one was acussing me of breaking into my own house it would be that times 5.

No, it's not. Yelling at police officers is not against the law. There may be some justification if your yelling disrupts the officer's ability to perform his job, but outlawing yelling goes against this little thing we like to call Freedom of Speech.

It would be great if you could resist this regular urge to patronizingly insult everyone who doesn't agree with you.

I see you haven't actually read the incident descriptions.

He was already on the phone with Harvard when the first officer arrived, and ironically you're taking Gates' word for it that he provided 2 forms of ID--the police claim he only provided one, his (addressless) Harvard ID. 'Confusion' doesn't mean total mental incompetence; that's a self-serving distortion on your part.

Well as Obama is evolving in his stance perhaps FYM will follow his lead.

Yeah, it'd be great if he joked about Gates having "hard-ons for white police officers," that's be a real evolutionary convergence of the President's views and FYM's.

I haven't been following the story all that closely - has there been any further mention regarding the neighbor who called the cops about the "break-in"?

Man, that person either had it in for Gates and did it on purpose or must feel pretty horrible right now.

I'm going to guess that if Gates ever finds out who it is, he or she won't be invited over for a barbeque ever again.

.

Disturbing the peace falls under disorderly conduct, and by coming outside and yelling and insulting a police officer that was calmly doing his job would be 'disorderly' by no stretch in the word's meaning, notwithstanding insulting the police officer's mother at the same time.

Surely you can wrap your brain around that legal concept.

You really have no grasp do you?

Talk about staying the course.

It got dropped. I postered earlier there was an interview with a cop on NPR the other day and he even admitted that these are joke, they refer to them as "insult a cop" charge. They get dropped because they don't stand, because there is no law being broken.

Wrap, wrap, wrap... just try.

No it wouldn't be, sometimes the truth is better left unsaid by the leader of the free world-besides that it would be outside of Obama's thought process.

Obama already stepped in it by calling the police dept actions "stupid" while being uninformed of the circumstances of this case thereby showing his own prejudices-and has now back tracked on those statements.
