    The disorderly conduct charge was dropped shortly thereafter (presumably because the PD found out about his political ties and wanted to avoid a huge ordeal).

    So the sense of privilege in the form of an apology is being illicit-ed to BLACKS and anyone who feels that the police department is wrong CONTINUES!

    Police are a HUGE problem. They are the ones who arrest many blacks & have arrested many blacks.

    The APOLOGY WILL NOT BE GIVEN!

    The reason they are police officers is because they did not pass the test. The intelligence has to be mediocre because a person with INTELLIGENCE will NOT arrest on sight as police officers roboticly performs.

    The idea that the POLICE DEPARTMENT WOULD DEMAND AN APOLOGY FROM THE PRESIDENT

    just shows the racism that continues to prevail.

    This sense of privilege that the WHITE POLICE OFFICE, DEPARTMENT & UNION is an outrage.

    Gates was arrested for being a jerk, showing his a** and not co-operating. He was already on the defensive because he was being asked a question. I say if there comes a time when the police are called to his address because someone is breaking in, they should pretend they didn't get the call and let him handle it himself, with his old crazy whiny self.

    Disorderly conduct which he deserved based on his action and the charges shouldn't have been dropped.

    Disorderly conduct. He's lucky we wasn't given a "wood shampoo" also!

    DC however the charges were dropped, more than likely for political reasons after realizing his status as happens most of the time with stuff like this.

    Disorderly conduct.

    It turns out it's not against the law to yell at a cop trying to hassle you in your own house.

    That's why the charges were dropped.
