    Why should he apologize? He asked the man to provide i.d. that it was in fact his house. The man refused and started accusations of racism. Of course the officer needs proof it is indeed his house. This case is so fucking stupid and what makes it worse is Obama even taking the time to comment on the case without knowing any of the facts. Way to run with your choke out Mr. President.


    I'm sorry but this incident is not national news in my opinion. And certainly did not warrant an apology from the black mayor, it was not enough to upset the black governor and not worth the black president commenting that the police acted stupidly for investigating a possible home burglary.

    The officer doesn't need to apologize for being a racist.
    He should be reprimanded for making a totally unnecessary arrest all because his widdle feewings were hurt by being called a racist.

    Explain to me how the officer is a racist. As I understand it, the officer responded to a call about a possible break in and was greeted with accusations of racism. So please tell me what legitmate purpose did Gates have for making such an outragious accusation?

    It's my opinion that Gates is the racist as most blacks are.

    I think he should have pepper sprayed him. Why carry that stuff around if you aren't going to use it?

    Where do I say the officer is a racist?
    What he is is an officer that can't handle being called names.
