And you do realize that the disorderly conduct charge was thrown out, right? If it was such a legitimate arrest to make, why isn't the charge sticking?

Surely you can wrap your brain around that legal concept.

I get the feeling that I just commented on your incessant need to patronize and insult others in here. It needs to stop.

It's easy to see the professor has issues the way he went to the race card and tore into the police officer.

What you need to do is ask yourself *honestly* (if you can) is would the professor have treated a black officer the same way?

Would he have chased a black officer out of his house and insulted him the same way he did the white officer?

The answer is no.

.
He was leaving and as he was the professor started insulting him, he became disorderly and was disturbing the peace-that's why he was arrested.

Charges are thrown out for a myriad of reasons, that doesn't mean the charge wasn't justified.

Because you know how those blacks think. Heck, you've probably met one or two in your day.

You make my skin crawl.

I grew up next to Watts California-in the city of South Gate.

My graduating class of 1980 was 50% Hispanic, 35% Black 10% White 5% Asian.

The majority of my friends and school yard chums were non-white-not that I was keeping track.

So try again.

With your ability to read minds, know exactly how things went down without reading shit, and your vast knowledge of the law, you should think about becoming a lawyer.

Crowley, Gates camps pleased by president's phone calls - Local News Updates - The Boston Globe

http://www.politicsdaily.com/2009/07...on-gates-case/

It would be nice if this incident did turn into something constructive and the three of them could sit down and discuss what happened in a civil manner. Maybe something good will come out of this.

Wow, 29 years ago you knew some minorities.

Break down the demographics of the area you live in now for me. Not that you're keeping track.

I never kept track of my friends' ethnic backgrounds , nor do I now. I did and do keep track of their characters and attitudes.

I hope you do the same.
