13. Here is the PD statement to the press
uly 21 (Bloomberg) -- Police in Cambridge, Massachusetts, dropped a disorderly conduct charge against Harvard University African American studies professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., calling his arrest last week regrettable and unfortunate.

This incident should not be viewed as one that demeans the character and reputation of Professor Gates or the character of the Cambridge Police Department,
said a statement today issued jointly by Gates, the police, the city of Cambridge and the Middlesex County district attorney. All parties agree that this is a just resolution to an unfortunate set of circumstances.

It is not clear if they personally apologized to him.
