    Being rude to police is not against the law although police officers believe it is .. especially if you're black .. that is if indeed Gates was rude.

    ALL the relevant facts are already known .. which is why the case was dropped.
    It's more likely the political pressure that exists between the Harvard Cops and the Cambridge police. According to a friend there is some bad blood between the two and often they step into each other. Of course that is according to his experience in Cambridge as a cop... I don't live there.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    .. and a strong sense of self-satisfaction I most certainly have .. but it's based on my history my good brother, not delusion.
    Cognitive Dissonance is a powerful mindfuck. It transfixes it's host with the terror of inconvenient truth .. the brain becomes motionless .. and all avenues to critical thought are blocked.

    Even science no longer makes sense.

    I've read that as well .. but no self-respecting department wants to be the focus of all that is wrong with police departments and I'm sure there was pressure to take the focus off them .. as well as the pressure to charge a man with disorderly conduct from an incident that began with cops investigating a man for breaking into his own home.

    At the end of the day, Gates and the issue of racial profiling are the winners .. and I'm sure there are more than a few police departments figuriing out how not end up being the focus of attention.

    I'm not inclined to discuss this much further.

    Gates chastises officer after authorities agree to drop criminal charge

    Earlier today, the Middlesex district attorney's office announced plans to drop criminal charges against Gates. The City of Cambridge and the police department recommended today that prosecutors not pursue charges in a joint statement from authorities and Gates that called the confrontation "regrettable and unfortunate."

    "This incident should not be viewed as one that demeans the character and reputation of professor Gates or the character of the Cambridge Police Department," the statement said. "All parties agree that this is a just resolution to an unfortunate set of circumstances."

    NOTE: Didn't say anything about Crowley.

    Cambridge Mayor E. Denise Simmons said in a statement that the controversy illustrated "that Cambridge must continue finding ways to address matters of race and class in a frank, honest, and productive manner."

    Where is your evidence that Gates apologized?

    Believe whatever you want, but Gates and the issue of racial profiling are the winners here.
    "All parties agree that this is a just resolution to an unfortunate set of circumstances."
    So now you think that Officer Crowley wasn't one of the parties!!



    The rest of your post is just more proof that you've been pwnd over your suppositions.
    Allowing an illegal immigrant to stay in the US and now start the legal immigration process, is like allowing a bank robber to keep what he's stolen as long as he starts the loan process.

    ... end of conversation.

    Come back when you grow up.

    By the way .. as for "feeling sorry for me" .. that's laughable.

    What have you accomplished that would make you feel sorry for me?
    And yet your comments are more proof that you've been pwnd.

    Now, go cry to someone else; because you've been weighed and measured and found to be wanting.
