Obama, Gates, Crowley: Who Acted Stupidly?
After following the Henry Louis Gates story, I wanted to get most of the facts about this before I posted. Obama made the statement “Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof he was in own home,” Gates’ arrest followed a report of a possible burglary. A woman apparently saw Gates force the front door and called police. Police came and demanded that Gates show identification. Gates was arrested shortly afterward for alleged disorderly conduct, a charge that was dropped.
I have posted the Cambridge Police report on Gates arrest for you to decide, Who Acted Stupidly?
Gates – acting disorderly
Crowley – for not walking away
Obama – for commenting before the facts
