    You BIGOTS make me sick

    Thank you to all the bigots out there that have been given the privilege to serve in public office that have obviously lied to the voting public and have now shown their true COLOR. Resign NOW, POS POTUS, POS Governor of Massachusetts, POS Professor(?) HA, and any other POS that condemn Sgt. Crowley for personal gain. YOU are the reason this country is in so much trouble. YOU have a personal RACIAL agenda. YOU are the BIGOT. YOU are the problem. You perpetuate the racial divide. Thank you for exposing the TRUTH. I have spent a career treating people with diginity and respect, and then you come along.....You make me sick. You are no better than Fat Al.

    See article below in the Daily News. Sgt. Crowley is a damn good officer. I can tell you that it doesn't matter what color or race you are, if you're stupid, you're going to treated like a stupid person. I still agree with Alan Keyes, that Obama is not the President, as he is not qualified. see video




    Cambridge Police Sgt. James Crowley says that he's not racist for arresting Henry Louis Gates, citing the CPR he gave the Celtics star Reggie Lewis as proof.
    The cop who arrested African-American scholar Henry Louis Gates refused to apologize and denied he's a racist, saying he once gave black basketball star Reggie Lewis mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
    "I wasn't working on Reggie Lewis the basketball star. I wasn't working on a black man," Sgt. James Crowley told the Boston Herald. "I was working on another human being."
    Crowley, 42, was referring to his actions after the Boston Celtics forward suffered a fatal heart attack in 1993 at Brandeis University, where he was a campus cop.
    An 11-year veteran of the Cambridge Police Department, Crowley arrested Gates, a noted Harvard professor, last Thurdsay while investigating a reported break-in at Gates' home.
    "I just have nothing to apologize for," Crowley said of the arrest. "It will never happen."
    For a week, Gates' disorderly conduct arrest has rekindled a heated debate on police misconduct on talk shows, blogs, chatrooms and dinner tables around the nation.
    President Obama said on Wednesday that the officer "acted stupidly" in arresting Gates after the professor showed him identification.
    "There is a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately, and that's just a fact," Obama said.
    Obama said federal officials need to continue working with local law enforcement "to improve policing techniques so that we're eliminating potential bias."
    Others said Gates prompted the arrest by refusing to cooperate.
    "This is what happens to black men in America!" Gates yelled as he was arrested as onlookers gathered outside his house.
    Gates said Crowley walked into his home without his permission and arrested him after he repeatedly demanded the sergeant's name and badge number.
    The professor called Crowley a "rogue" cop who targeted him because of his race, and demanded an apology.
    Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert Haas, with Gates attorney Walter Prince's consent, dropped the charge on Tuesday, calling the incident "an unfortunate set of circumstances."
    The Cambridge Police Superior Officers Association expressed its "full and unqualified support" for Crowley, calling him a "highly respected veteran supervisor with a distinguished record."
    The group's statement called Crowley's actions "consistent with his training, with the informed policies and practices of the department and with applicable legal standards."
    Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, who is black, said he was troubled and upset over the incident. Cambridge Mayor Denise Simmons - she's also black - apologized to Gates on behalf of the city.


    The six o'clock rule
    I tell them to act according to the six o'clock rule, a phrase that causes most of them to say, "Huh?"
    I tell them to use this little test before they decide to do something. If they were to do what they're thinking about, and it became the lead story on the six o'clock news, would they be proud? Would their department be proud, and would their family be proud? It's a simple way to live your life both personally and professionally.

    Angry

    I suspect So Fla Cop is pissed about this article or one like it. He has every right to be. You guys in LE put your lives on the line and treat everyone with the utmost respect.

    Then we get bigoted idiots like this Gates character.

    Sgt. James Crowley, cop who arrested Henry Louis Gates, denies he's a racist

    Hang in there, Crowley. There are many that support you.

    President Obama said on Wednesday that the officer "acted stupidly" in arresting Gates after the professor showed him identification.

    "There is a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately, and that's just a fact," Obama said.

    Obama said federal officials need to continue working with local law enforcement "to improve policing techniques so that we're eliminating potential bias."


    Go climb back into your hole, Osama bin Obama
    .

    Others said Gates prompted the arrest by refusing to cooperate.


    That's the Gods honest truth, if Gates would have cooperated, we wouldn't be hearing this BULLSHIT right now. I wonder what the story would be had the arresting officer been black? No, that would be too simple. We don't get to pick our arresting officers.

    "This is what happens to black men in America!" Gates yelled as he was arrested as onlookers gathered outside his house.

    No, this is what happens to bigoted idiots who don't want to cooperate and pull the race card.

    Gates said Crowley walked into his home without his permission and arrested him after he repeatedly demanded the sergeant's name and badge number.

    The professor called Crowley a "rogue" cop who targeted him because of his race, and demanded an apology.


    It will never happen, see above.


    Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert Haas, with Gates attorney Walter Prince's consent, dropped the charge on Tuesday, calling the incident "an unfortunate set of circumstances."

    Un-freaking-believable. Another sell-out.

    The Cambridge Police Superior Officers Association expressed its "full and unqualified support" for Crowley, calling him a "highly respected veteran supervisor with a distinguished record."

    The group's statement called Crowley's actions "consistent with his training, with the informed policies and practices of the department and with applicable legal standards."


    This is the only positive thing that I can get out of this whole article, now that we know who the sell-outs are.

    Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, who is black, said he was troubled and upset over the incident. Cambridge Mayor Denise Simmons - she's also black - apologized to Gates on behalf of the city.


    Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.

    I heard our POS Obama last night commenting about the police acting stupidly - The fucking idiot needs to stick to wasting money and running car companies.

    He may THINK he's omnificent, but if he wasn't there he has no idea WTF he's talking about, and thus should keep his conclusions to himself until he talks personally with all parties involved.

    Wow, this may be the only Presidential candidate in the country who can say that without being called a racist. I think he just broke out of his "Uncle Tom" status, too

    I guess the feds are perfect in all that is Obama's glory. Lord knows I could use some improved unbiased policing techniques from them. I wonder how whatever federal officials he's talking about feel about that statement.

    Surfing one of the most popular social networking sites, I found something that made me feel a little better about this. There is a support page, recently started, for Sgt Crowley that is, as of a few minutes ago, up to 2600 members. Henry Louis Gates Jr's page, which has obviously been up for a while, that only has about 1500 members. Others have popped up specifically for his support. All of those sites total less than 2500 members (including the original 1500 member site). Support is out there and it is mounting.

    EDIT: I just checked and the site gained 117 members in the time it took me to post that^^.

    Angry Obama doesn't regret 'acted stupidly' remark about Henry Gates Jr. arrest

    GOD, I hate that smug grin of his

    By Michael Sheridan
    DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER
    Thursday, July 23rd 2009, 10:43 PM

    What's everyone so upset about?

    That was President Obama's response Thursday night during an ABC News interview when asked if he regretted his "acted stupidly" comment during Wednesday night's press conference.



    President Obama seemed to shrug off criticism that his 'acted stupidly' comment was too
    harsh during an ABC News interview Thursday night

    "I am suprised by the controversy," Obama told ABC's Terry Moran. "I think it was [a] pretty straightforward comment that you probably don't need to handcuff a guy, a middle-aged man who uses a cane, who's in his own home."

    And while Obama did not apologize for his strong jab, he attempted to soften its impact by offering compliments to the police officer at the center of the Henry Louis Gates Jr. arrest, Sgt. James Crowley.

    "From what I can tell, the sergeant involved is an outstanding police officer," the President offered, adding that he "has extraordinary respect for the difficulties of the job that police officers do."

    The President was asked Wednesday during his health care press conference about the controversial arrest of the black Harvard professor in Cambridge, and responded, "The Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home."

    Crowley was on the defensive earlier in the day following Obama's sharp remark.

    "I just have nothing to apologize for," Crowley said, insisting he wasn't a racist. And the Cambridge Police Superior Officers Association seems to agree.

    "Upon review, the Association expresses its full and unqualified support for the actions taken by Sgt. Crowley in response to the report of a possible break-in at a residence on Ware Street in Cambridge," the union said in a statement.

    Crowley had harsh words for the President, too.

    "I think he was way off base wading into a local issue without knowing all the facts," Crowley told Boston radio station WBZ-AM. "I acted appropriately. I've done nothing wrong." (Read more here)

    Obama noted during his ABC News interview that he felt the arrest was one that simply got out of hand.

    "Words were exchanged between the police officer and Mr. Gates," he said, "and everybody should have just settled down and cooler heads should have prevailed."

    The incident happened last week after Gates, 58, a Harvard professor, returned home from a trip to China. While he had trouble entering his home, a passerby reported it to police as a possible break-in.

    Police arrived and demanded Gates prove he lived in the house. The professor became agitated and criticized the police. Cops later arrested him outside his home.

    The city of Cambridge later issued a statement calling Gates' arrest on charges of disorderly conduct, which were dropped, "regrettable and unfortunate."

    All we'll learn from Obama's appointed "feds" is how to get away with not filing our income taxes and the graduate course, how to lie about not filing your income taxes
    The world would be much cleaner if blind people carried brooms instead of sticks.

    At communion, when the priest says "Body of Christ", I say "Thanks, I've been working out", then I grab the cracker and run back to my seat

    An amateur practices until he gets it right. A professional practices until he cant get it wrong.

    They've got us surrounded? Good. Now we can fire in any direction. Those bastards won't get away this time.

    I'm so sick of hearing this bullshit byline to his bullshit, backhanded "apology." From what I can tell, Sgt. Crowley had no need to "settle down." Sgt. Crowley, in fact, was the only one who had a "cool head" in this entire situation. I don't give a fuck if you're an RP/complainant, a suspect, or a bystander. You start hurling insults about my mom etc., and I'm gone. I'm not even sticking around to give you my name and badge number. Nowhere does it say that I have to take your shit-talking. You follow me OUTSIDE OF YOUR HOUSE, and continue to berate me in a manner that draws attention and breaches the peace, you get two chances. I will ask you to go inside your house, I will tell you, and then you're mine.

    Sgt. Crowley TRIED to have cooler heads prevail by telling this piece of disrespectful trash to go back inside his home and to cease his disturbance. Hell, he was leaving, and the D-bag followed him! I do not work in a culture of "settling down." I remain professional in my demeanor, and I will arrest you if you don't obey my lawful orders. If you think that by doing so, I need to "settle down", you can just pour yourself a nice glass of Go Fuck Yourself. That includes that fucking snake we elected.
    "If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970
