  •  There he was protecting the home (0+ / 0-)

    against its owner.

    Because he is BLACK the cops went overboard.

    •  Can't go there (0+ / 0-)

      This was a case of antagonizing a cop for no reason at all. If you really want to piss one of them off, eventually you'll succeed. This one was 50/50, because Gates was in control of the situation and he had repeated opportunities to bring the matter to a happy conclusion.

        They need more training.

        And fewer steroids.

        And their racism needs to be limited, somehow.

        Not 50/50. That's a whitewash.

        •  They do indeed (0+ / 0-)

          Did you see Digby's piece on this? That, the story at Crooked Timber she links to, Crowley's report over at Smoking Gun, you start to get an idea of what happened but this thing is like Rashomon.

          What did Crowley do to get Gates accusing him of racism? It appears that all he did was ask Gates to step onto the porch for a chat.
