OBAMA DIDNT MIS-SPOKE How many other would could he have use to wiggle his way out of this one? The officer acted stupidly by arresting and old man with a cane, after he showed his ID showing he was in his own home, for yelling in a threatening manner. Was the professors cane a dangerous weapon, threatening to three big cops? I have seen television shows where cops stopped people and they yell and are never arrested. This arrest was all about race and why is that so hard to believe that the cop was offended by an uppity black man yelling at him, a cop? I am sure this was not the first time he was yelled at. I am sure the professor was offended also after showing the cop who he was and in his own home. A person has the right to yell in his own home without being arrested every time.
