    ..Professor Gates totally played the race-card by claiming racial profiling(when CPD did no profiling, let alone a racially-based one).   Whether or not race had anything to do with what happened remains to be seen, but anyone claiming that it does is not being intellectually honest(due to a lack of evidence).

    I realize that my saying Gates is playing the race-card is pretty controversial.   Then again, since this whole thing began, I heard many times now about his upcoming(and now well-publicized) documentary.

    The CPD acted stupidly, but so did Gates. Crowley and the CPD don't want to apologize at this point because they have been unfairly accused on a national stage of racism since the get-go(just as they were accused at first for arresting Gates for breaking into his own home, when he was arrested for making a scene in public).
