A good cop vindicated. Gates discredited. Obama undermined - undermined during a week of great legislative importance. Obama exposed - exposed for being the radical sympathizer and anti-cop liberal that he is. It was the grass roots that stopped the "lynching" of a good cop by the MSM; the Harvard elite; the Obama machine and their enablers. The police union is still asking for an actual apology from Obama and Deval. So fight on. But enjoy the show. Here... Here... Here... Here.

President Obama stepped in a heaping pile of manure yesterday, when he injected himself into the Gates-Crowley affair. He is wrong and he owes Sgt. James Crowley and the Cambridge Police Department an apology.
But don’t believe the mainstream media hype. Henry Louis Gates Jr. is a prominent scholar at Harvard University. He is a powerful man; a friend of Obama. And he is a devious, race baiting, anti-American intellectual.
The mainstream media, the Harvard faculty and elites worldwide jumped to Gates defense. Don’t believe them. Gates is not a victim. This story is a tinderbox. Its an inflamatory subject that has the potential to blow up.
Obama used a national platform to slander the reputation of decorated police officer on behalf of his radical friend. This is serious. Obama is not a post-racial healer; his comments exposed his loyalties. He is a cohort of Jeramiah Wright, Charles Ogletree, Henry Louis Gates Jr. and other divisive, race obsessed, elitist intellectuals.
The fact that he used his press conference to state that Sgt. Crowley “acted stupidly” and then interject the topic of racial profiling into this local story is astounding. This is similar to Obama’s immediate support of exiled Honduran President Zelaya. Again, Obama’s ill-informed reflexive impulse exposed his true nature as a neo-Marxist sympathizer.
Sgt. Crowley deserves no such rebuke, especially not from the President of the United States on national television. Crowley was responding to a specific call regarding a break-in. Crowley acted appropriately.
It was Gates who was out of line. Amongst other egregious acts, it was Gates who told Crowley "I'll speak with your mama outside", when Crowley asked Gates to step outside. Yet, Gates demands that Crowley "beg" for forgiveness. Gates is an angry petty man. That Crowley's reputation was dragged through the mud by Obama is shameful.
As reported in the Boston Herald:
Crowley, an 11-year veteran of the force, oversees the evidence room, paid details and records unit. He also coaches youth basketball, baseball and softball. Joseph McDonald, a former director of public safety at Brandeis, said Crowley was “a real pro,” calling Gates’ racial profiling charge “strange". “You just do the job as a cop. You don’t look at the color of skin. You’re just trying to help people,” said McDonald, 57. In a statement expressing its “full and unqualified support” for Crowley, the Cambridge Police Superior Officers Association called its brother a “highly respected veteran supervisor with a distinguished record. “His actions at the scene of this matter were consistent with his training, with the informed policies and practices of the department and with applicable legal standards.”
It was a young Crowley, who tried to save former Boston Celtic star and African-American, Reggie Lewis, years ago and cried for days because he could not save him:
The Cambridge cop prominent Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. claims is a racist gave a dying Reggie Lewis mouth-to-mouth resuscitation in a desperate bid to save the Celtics superstar’s life 16 years ago Monday. “I wasn’t working on Reggie Lewis the basketball star. I wasn’t working on a black man. I was working on another human being,” Sgt. James Crowley, in an exclusive interview with the Herald, said of the forward’s fatal heart attack July 27, 1993, at age 27 during an off-season practice at Brandeis University, where Crowley was a campus police officer. It’s a date Crowley still can recite by rote - and he still recalls the pain he suffered when people back then questioned whether he had done enough to save the black athlete. “Some people were saying ‘There’s the guy who killed Reggie Lewis’ afterward. I was broken-hearted. I cried for many nights,” Crowley, 42, said he’s not a racist, despite how some have cast his actions in the Gates case. “Those who know me know I’m not,” he said.
Even working class Obama supporters in the Democratic enclave of Boston are stunned by Obama's comments. This is about working Americans versus Harvard educated elites; post racial Americans versus race baiters; and law abiding citizens and law enforcement officials versus those who think they are above the law.
Obama stepped in it. Police associations are appalled. And the more people learn of the true record of Sgt. Crowley and the facts of this case, the more people will become appalled.
