madest-"They arrested a man in his own home."
A man who was inside a home who's door had been forced, and a man who refused to present identification and was beligerent.
"couldn`t imagine that a black man lived in tony Cambridge."
As census shows that Cambridge is 12% black, I`m sure they have a very good idea that a black man is capable of living there.
"Same goes for the person who made the 911 call."
That person saw two men forcing their way into a residence. It was a `passer-by`, not a neighbor, so they had no way of knowing who lived there. I`ve had cops called on me for climbing through a window (installing cable). I gave my id to the officer, he saw it matched the address, and said `Thanks, have a nice day`.
btw..an independant panel found both Gates and the officer made mistakes. The POINT is that Obama automatically blamed the police, before knowing ANY facts. Later Obama had to `Clarify` hi

They arrested a man in his own home. They couldn't imagine that a black man lived in tony Cambridge. Same goes for the person who made the 911 call. When the police got there he was in his home. When officer Crowley determined it was indeed his home he lured him outside to arrest him for disorderly conduct. In my mind the officer didn`t like getting berated by a black man. Charges were dropped because the police acted stupidly. Sometimes it`s a worthwhile endeavor to put yourself in another mans shoes. I can tell from your personality that you would have acted much the same as Mr Gates.
