WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama said Wednesday that police acted "stupidly" in the arrest of prominent black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. and that despite racial progress blacks and Hispanics are still singled out unfairly for arrest.
"This still haunts us," Obama said.
Obama called Gates a friend, and said he doesn't know all the facts of the case. Nonetheless, Obama said, anyone would have been angry if treated the way Gates claims police in Cambridge, Mass., treated him. Gates claims he was arrested in his own home after showing ID to police who responded to a report of a possible burglary....
Get A Load of This Other Short News FACT Item; On The Satanic-Vaticanist/"Jesuit(ic) Backed "New-World-Order" Financial/Economic "Police" STUPIDITY" Ala The QUACK U.S. President Obama Administration: From The Chicago Sun-Times' Article "REFORM ISN'T ABOUT ME--Fundraisers--Obama rips opponent's 'scare tactics' against health-care effort"...
About 110 to 130 higher-earning fans of the president paid about $15,000 each to meet the president at the elegant and modern Lincoln Park (Chicago) home of his chief fund-raiser, Hyatt Hotels heiress Penny Pritzker.
The second fund-raiser, at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, allowed 750 to 800 people the chance to see the president for $250 to $2,500.
The two events are expected to raise about $2 million to $3 nillion for the Democratic National Committee, headed by Obama's (U.S. Constitutional Seditious/Treasonous/Poser/Usurper) appointee, Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine.
Unlike donations to individual federal candidates or Obama's eventual re-election campaign fund, which are subjected to stricter limits, so-called "soft money" donated to the party can still be given in larger chunks--$15,200 per individual--that the party can then spend on behalf of other campaigns.--Abdon M.

But I Know ALL The FACTS About THIS Chicago "New-World-Order" Financial/Economic "Police" STUPIDITY:
"FOR $15,200, YOU GET...
What does $15,200 buy, in addition to a little face time with President Obama at his national finance chair Penny Pritzker's Lincoln Park, Chicago home?
Gazpacho (cold vegetable soup) shooters; beef sliders; watermelon/feta cheese/radish salad and pasta salad were among treats. Attendees also got to pose for pictures with Obama.
At Obama's second fund-raiser Thursday night, about 800 guests who paid $250 to $2,500 for their tickets were treated to roast beef and turkey carving tables, as well as vegetable and desert tables.
The (Penny) Pritzker event had premium spirits (booze) at the liquor (hooch) stations. The Hyatt Regency (Hotel: Owned By The Billionaire Pritzker Jewish/Illuminati/Satanic-Vaticanist/Bankster-Gangster Family) event offered beer and wine (aka Juice Of The Devil & Demon Rum), with the exception of the VIP room (which probably offered worse "vice", "excess" & "filthy sinful bondage" like their "downstairs" action & entertainment; with the "gays", sodomites & sex-perverts that accompany the many perverted "Pritzker" parties of the past & present !)--Abdon M.

Maybe Gates is a racist. Racists see everything in terms of color, so perhaps his colorful outburst was inevitable. It was kind of funny to listen to this "Harvard scholar" speak of police picking on poor black folk.
"Obama ... said he doesn't know all the facts of the case."
But that doesn't stop him from passing judgement anyway. Perhaps he learned this at Trinity UCC - churches of all sorts, from Fundy to modernist, are excellent schools for this habit. Maybe faulty epistemology is part of the problem - reaching fallacious conclusions from evidence.
Obama need not worry here - surely one of the most "liberal" jurisdictions in the country will discipline any erring police officers.
"Police say Gates yelled at the officers and initially refused to show his ID. Gates allegedly yelled âthis is what happens to a black man in Americaâ and âyou donât know who youâre messing withâ before he was arrested, and police said he was uncooperative."
This isn't an incident of "hate crime" towards the police whilst carrying out their duty is it???
