    Is that a lawsuit I smell? You can verbally beat someone all you like, but nothing hurts worse than being hit in the pocketbook.

    I never heard WHY they went to his home in the first place, did they have probable cause, was it a name mixup???? or just another Random Ni&&@ search???

    Handcuffs?!? SMH this is just terrible. We knew the charges would be dropped. Cambridge PD you thought the story on the kids at the pool was bad? You messed with the wrong brotha.

  • Aunt Viv

    Of course the charges were dropped-they had nothing on him-he was going into his OWN HOME!!!!

  • Ummmmmm....

    I knew there was more to the story…HE DID provide the officer with ID, but for some bogus reason — was arrested anyway! So shady

    I just hope he doesn’t let Messy Jessie or Rev Sharpton get involved! They’ll turn the situation into a circus for their own gain and no one will want to pay attention…right or wrong.

    @ tesap,
    “I never heard WHY they went to his home in the first place, did they have probable cause, was it a name mixup???? or just another Random Ni&&@ search???”

    Someone called to report two black men breaking into the home. But it was HIS HOME=NO PROBABLE CAUSE WHATSOEVER.

  • Come On People

    The officers were responding to a call that was made that someone was trying to break in the house. His nieghbors probably knew that he had been in China and did not know when he was coming back. He only provided the officers with I.D. after he accuse them of racial profiling. He was being beligurent with the officers and yes they can take you to jail for doing that. He should have been cooperative. Now, if someone was breaking into his house and the police did not respond he would have probably said that it was because he was black too.

  • Come On People

    Think about it people if someone reported that someone was breaking into your house because they knew that you were out of town and the cops came by your house and if the burgulars said “Well, it is my house!” would you want the police to say “OK, sir have a good day.”

    Some people are saying they smell a lawsuit but what people don’t understand is that it’s the taxpayers who will foot the bill if a lawsuit is succesfull.

    @ Soul Ese
    He did give him his id. They got mad and treated him with hostility in his own home. HE asked for their name and badge number and they wouldn’t give it. As soon as he stepped out side they said he was being “irate”. All of us who know Dr Gates know this is not possible. The police report was a lie and Dr Ogletree was about to tear it up in court thats why they dropped the damn charges. This is not pookey off the street the angry black man narrative doesn’t work here. What happened here was the racist white cop wanted to put the smart rich Ni**er in his place and behaved as an officer of the antagonist instead of an officer of the peace.
