THE COMMUNITY ORGANIZER-IN-CHIEF JUST HAD TO WEIGH IN ON THE ALLEGED 'RACIST' COPS IN CAMBRIDGE LAST NIGHT

Without knowing the facts, President Obama was able to conclude the police acted "stupidly" in arresting a Harvard professor of black studies after receiving a call about a possible break-in.

Bloggers and pundits immediately jumped on the bandwagon. I'm sure you may have already read knee-jerk reactions in blogs and journals, or heard reports on television, all disseminated by people all too willing to condemn first and ask questions later.

Now that the facts are finally beginning to emerge, I'm betting they'll mumble something about how all police lie and then shuffle off to some new target of their animus.

Take a breath and read what actually happened, then tell me who acted "stupidly":

EDIT - The Boston Globe has just scrubbed the police report from their web site!

Facts are such inconvenient things. People who are really victims of racism, discrimination, etc. (like myself) should be outraged at the behavior of publicity-seekers like this man Gates appears to be. As for me, I would be grateful that alert citizens and the police would be looking out for my property and safety, and that they would risk putting their own safety on the line to do so.

Now, since a big deal has been made out of this situation, lets have ALL the facts out in the open. Wouldn't that be the fair thing?

Our president sure seems to have some strange friends. I wonder how long it'll be before the distinguished Prof. Gates finds himself with the crowd under Obama's bus?

What a tool.
Nah, Obama's invited them both over for a beer at the White House; everybody can make nice. That'll make the problem go away...
