      or anything else - hasn't denied refusing to give in ID, and hasn't denied the yelling on the lawn - can't, since there are neighbors who are witnesses. He only says he was being harassed. But really, everyone who gets stopped by a cop and asked to provide ID gets harassed.

      On another blog it was pointed out that even if Gates owns his home, the fact that he forced entry means that cops need to check that he isn't being kept out of the home for domestic or child abuse reasons. Coulda been totally routine... and probably woulda been except for gates heightened response.
