Why Stupidly Was the Right Word for the Prof. Gates, Officer Crowley Messon July 28, 2009 at 10:49 am
The 911 call is finally released, the original caller mentions that the "two men have suit cases and could actually live there." She doesn’t mention that they’re black. Crowley admits he arrested Gates for yelling, not a threatening movement, it’s false arrest if you read the report.
John Ridley of thatminoritything.com joins Lawrence O’Donnell, with an admission of having had a feeling "Here we go again." He some horrifying incidents of actual profiling that "you expect to see, unfortunately." "The teachable moment" of which Obama speaks, what is it? The words "I’ll show you who’s boss" DO sound like a stupid moment. Hopes for The Beer Summit: Next time we don’t see things, just bits and pieces from one side or the other, we’ll look at the entire picture before jumping to a decision.
In this case, I feel the media jumped in before anyone had all of the facts.
