CNN: Black Cambridge Cops Support Sgt. Crowley, Denounce Gates and Obama

Members of the Cambridge Police Department are speaking out against Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates‘ recent claim that he was a victim of racism and racial profiling perpetrated by Sergeant Jim Crowley, who is white. (For details of the incident, click here.)

Cambridge Sergeant Leon Lashley, who is black, said this:

“This situation right here was not a racial[ly] motivated situation…. They called him [Crowley] … a rogue cop. There’s nothing rogue about him. He was doing his job.”

Officer Kelly King put it this way:

“I know Jimmy [Crowley]. I’ve known him for more than the 11 years with the Cambridge police. I knew him when he worked for Harvard. I know him to be a good police officer, a good man with character, and I knew these charges were bogus…. I think Professor Gates has done a very good job of putting up a very efective smokescreen, calling race into this. It [race] had nothing to do with it.”

Regarding President Obama, who made headlines when he asserted that the Cambridge police had “acted stupidly” in arresting Gates, Officer King said:

“I supported him [Obama], I voted for him. I will not again…. [H]e should have recused himself. He should have stepped back and he should have said, ‘I support my friend but I don’t have all the facts. I won’t weigh in yet.’”

The words of Mr. Lashley and Ms. King demonstrate with crystal clarity just how recklessly irresponsible Obama was, when he stated that the arrest of Professor Gates was somehow emblematic of the “long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.” In fact, the arrest was emblematic only of the fact that Gates himself is a racial profiler extraordinaire who hears the heart of a racist beating within the breast of every white person who crosses his path.

Will Obama’s adoring disciples in the mainstream media ever notice that the President’s hard-left ideology, which divides the world ever-so-neatly into the oppressors and the oppressed, is in fact far more developed than his legendary intellect?
