55. What a pantload. Gates was in his own home, with ID, with his KEYS
and in the presence of his DRIVER. After identifying himself to the officer, that should have been that.

That he was arrested is an indication that it was the police that were behaving in an unprofessional manner. Not only that, but damage to his front door should have been looked at because it's a sign of attempted forced entry while he was away. And that got lost while these racist assholes had to throw their weight at an older, disabled, ill black man.

But nice try.
