In This Game…

22 Jul

race always trumps.

[Officer] Crowley wrote in the Cambridge police report that Gates refused to step outside to speak with him, the police report said, and when Crowley told Gates that he was investigating a possible break-in, Gates opened the front door and exclaimed, “Why, because I’m a black man in America?” the report said.

The report said Gates initially refused to show the officer identification, but eventually produced a Harvard identification card, prompting Crowley to radio for Harvard University Police.

“While I was led to believe that Gates was lawfully in the residence, I was quite surprised and confused with the behavior he exhibited toward me,” Crowley said, according to the report.

Gates was arrested for “loud and tumultuous behavior in a public space” and was released from police custody after spending four hours at the police station.

So, the police get a call about a potential home invasion. When they knock on the door the homeowner refuses to be cooperative and becomes belligerent. I wonder, does his Harvard ID have his address on it?

The Supreme Leader was all to happy to send mixed messages and play the race card.

“But I think it’s fair to say, No. 1, any of us would be pretty angry; No. 2, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, No. 3 … that there’s a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.”

No.1, Yes, I would be pretty angry if I was trying to do my job – you know, protect and serve – and someone was being uncooperative and accusing me of racism when there was absolutely NO reason; No. 2, I guess those Harvard ID badges must have the identified’s address printed on the card; No. 3, Those racist cops! I can’t believe that they just randomly go around knocking on people’s doors an arresting minorities.

Just for fun, look at the second picture in the article. See anything of interest?

    I had just finished reading the article before I went here. I couldn't believe it! What a joke. For the President to just on the Race wagon, being a good friend of this jerk is nuts. The entire country is now on pins and needles with the blessing of our fearless leader. Dad

    If memory serves, Obama was also a "friend" of Pastor Jeremiah Wright, who preached that "the white man is the devil"…Makes 'ya think about race relations in the near future.Good post, Reese.
