Harvard Professor Cries Racism~What a Shocker!

Harvard Professor Cries Racism~What a Shocker!

But, it gets better! One of the Officers who Arrested Gates was——– Black!

Officer at Gates Arrest is Black---Shocking, isn't it?

I was at the gym last night when this came across one of the multitude of television sets at the 24 Hour Fitness I belong to. I believe it was CNN reporting this BS Ga-Ga and to my amazement, although I do not know why I turned off my IPod and plugged in the headphones to the cross trainer to hear who was crying racism now and why. I at first laughed at this BS and then the more I thought about it, the more it pissed me off that the vast majority of the time something negative happens to a black person, it is because of race.

As a former police officer, I know what it is like first hand to receive and arrive to a possible burglary in progress. You do not know who, or what for that matter you will encounter let alone if they are armed and dangerous. So, when I heard the officers take on the events that followed, I grew even more angrier that the news media are looking at this as nothing more than racism against a poor defenseless blackman while COMPLETELY dismissing the fact that GATES was acting like a friggin derranged FOOL!

My A$$!

“Cambridge police say they responded to the two-story home near campus after a woman reported seeing “two black males with backpacks on the porch,” with one “wedging his shoulder into the door as if he was trying to force entry.”

First- A call went into the police station because someone was trying to knock down the door-WOW, it must be nice to know that YOU HAVE neighbors looking out for you. Second-when the cops arrived they saw the man in the middle of the house with the door open-HELLO, what the heck would you do? Third-the first thing out of the racist Harvard Professors mouth was not, here is my ID to prove I live here—NOOOOOOO….. “Police say he refused to come outside to speak with an officer, who told him he was investigating a report of a break-in.

“Why, because I’m a black man in America?” Gates said, according to a police report written by Sgt. James Crowley.

“Gates initially refused to show the officer his identification, but then gave him a Harvard University ID card, according to police. “Gates continued to yell at me, accusing me of racial bias and continued to tell me that I had not heard the last of him,” the officer wrote.”

I would like to know how Race Baiting AL Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Gates can explain away the fact that the officer walking down the steps in the photo above——wait for it….look at the picture……..wait for it……..can anyone tell me where I am going with this? …….HE IS…BLACK!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW, does that possibly throw a wrench in the racial aspect of this BS complaint? I think so!!!

    Just would like to know that after they figured out it was his house why did they still arrest him then drop the charges?

    • specfriggintacular

      Excellent question! I am not sure how the law works up there, but I am pretty sure it works the same in all states as far as police officers asking for an ID when they suspect a crime is or has taken place.

      1. The officers were doing their job by responding to a possible break-in in progress because a concerned citizen made the call that two men were trying to force the door open — which they in fact were.

      2. When the officers arrived, the door was open and he was standing in he middle of the room.

      3. They asked him to step outside because they were investigating a call that someone was breaking into the home and at this point, ALL gates had to do was comply and offer the officers identification to prove who he was and that he lived there.

      4. The fact is, he refused to comply with the officers and instead became beilgerant, uncooperative and falsley accusing him of being racist. There were no grounds for him to behave in the manner he did, the cops that arrived at the scene were doing their JOB! Up to that point, did the officers do anything to resemble they were singling him out because he was black? The answer is NO!

      5. Gates continued to ignore the request of the officer 2 more time before finally showing the officer his Harvard ID and then later his Drivers License.

      6. Gates was out-of-line and to even begin to call this racist is a sad!

      7. He was arrested for disorderly conduct and done so based on DEPARTMENT PROTOCAL.

      8. I have not heard one peep from the black officer that was there with them saying the incident was racist.

      9. In the past 2-3 months leading up to the Gates incident, 5 other homes in the area had been broken into-which leads the cops to not question the caller not that it should had to be questioned anyway.

      10. Cops are not allowed/afforded the right to determine whether or not a crime scene “might” end in outcries of racism. They are not afforded the right to say “Hey, there is a black guy we better becareful not to offend him even though he has a gun in his hand or even though he was scene trying to pry open he door to this house yet refuses to cooperate and show us he is the person that is suppose to reside here”.

      11. Dropping the charges. It is in my best opinion that the charges were dropped because of political reasons, and because disorderly conduct is petty anyway.

      12. I am a former police officer and it is hard for me to say I would not have done the same thing. But to come out from the gate calling the officer a racist because he was doing his job-that is liabelous at least if not defamatory accusations that could have cost this officer his job. There were not grounds to call that officer racist from the begining-none what-so-ever!

    Yeah, Gates didn’t act particularly well but that where your good points end. Just because a neighbor called the police doesn’t mean that someones civil liberties are thrown out the window.

    The police show up, they have someone calling from in the house claiming to be the owner. Now at this point they know where the suspect is, that he isn’t completely high on meth, and that he is perhaps the owner of the house. (Most burglars would try to flee as soon as they became aware to police were on their way). So the police finally have this guy come out and he shows ID. Apparently in his entry way, or on his porch, and at this time it is apparent he is the resident and is telling the truth. Ok, so (worst case) if he is cussing out the officers and being an idiot, they get in their cars and leave. Should they arrest the guy for disorderly conduct?- No.

    Black people of authority can very easily be racist towards other black people, only someone very ignorant would think that racism is only white-on-black.

      Jason….those are not the events of what happened. So let me help you out as I read Gates statement and I read the police report:

      1. The woman calls in the possible break-in
      2. Gates finally gets in his house and he does not call the cops, he calls the people he is renting the house from
      3. Cops arrive to see the DOOR OPEN and he is standing in the middle of the room
      4. The cops do not know this guy is not high on meth or is not the burglar–they are not afforded that much safety to ASSUME that. The police were already on their way before Gates even got into his home because of #1
      5. Cops ask him to step outside because they are responding to a 9-11 call about a possible break-in
      6. He refuses and then asks them “Why? Because I am a Black Man in America”
      7. It takes the cop THREE times to ask him for ID when he FIRST shows them his Harvard ID…….during all of this he is yelling at the cops and calling them racist—which baffles me because one of them is BLACK!
      8. Disorderly Conduct—from the Justice Department: Unlawful interruption of the peace, quiet, or order of a community, including offenses called disturbing the peace, vagrancy, loitering, unlawful assembly, and riot.
      9. Gates was clearly yelling, calling the officer(s) racist, being uncooperative. It is up to the officer to charge someone with Disroderly Conduct if they deem it necessary. He gave them more than enough reasons to arrest him.
      10. He might want to becareful because he falsley accused this officer of being racist which is a defamation of character and a libelous accusation!!!

      Let me also add the following—if the officer was a racist he would not have made sure he was comforatable by handcuffing him in the front when Gates complained about the cuffs in the back nor would he have made a point to look for his cane before they left. He was acting like an ass and while committing a huge scene scene in public:

      “The report, obtained from the Cambridge District Court, said that the 58-year-old professor was arrested by Cambridge police shortly past noon for “exhibiting loud and tumultuous behavior,” during which he allegedly accused police officers at the scene of being racist. The report said that a woman had called police to the scene after seeing a man “wedging his shoulder in the front door [of Gates’ house] as to pry the door open.”

      When a police officer arrived on the scene to investigate the tip, Gates was reportedly already having an altercation with another sergeant inside the home. The professor allegedly shouted “[t]his is what happens to black men in America” when asked for identification and repeatedly told the police officer that “[y]ou don’t know who your [sic] messing with,” according to the report.

      The two then moved to the front porch, the report said, where Gates continued to shout that the sergeant was racist, catching the attention of roughly seven “surprised and alarmed” onlookers.

      According to Ogletree, Gates noticed a police officer on his porch while he was on the phone requesting a door repair from Harvard Real Estate Services, which owns the home.

      But the police sergeant who first arrived on the scene said he had told Gates his name multiple times when requested, and that Gates simply shouted over him. The sergeant said he was forced to step out of the home because of Gates’ uncomfortably loud yelling, according to the report obtained from the Boston Globe. He said he told Gates that they could discuss the matter further outside, to which Gates allegedly replied, “ya, I’ll speak with your mama outside.”

      The officer said he warned Gates multiple times that his behavior was becoming disorderly before the actual arrest, but Ogletree says the officer did not provide his name or give any indication that charges would be filed. Ogletree says the officer simply exited the kitchen to leave the home, and that Gates followed the officer to the front door only to see multiple other police officers standing outside. When Gates stepped onto the front porch to ask for the police officer’s name, the officer said “thank you for accommodating my earlier request” and placed Gates under arrest, Ogletree said.

      The police report says that Gates complained that the handcuffs were too tight and that he was “disabled,” prompting officers to handcuff him with arms in front for comfort and to search for a cane in the home
