The Cambridge and area police unions voiced their support Friday for Sgt. James Crowley and demanded an apology from President Obama for saying officers “acted stupidly” for arresting black Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. at his home.
“His remarks were obviously misdirected but made it worse yet by suggesting somehow this case should remind us of a history of racial abuse by law enforcement,” Dennis O’Connor, president of the Cambridge Police Superior Officers Association, said at a news conference.
“Whatever may be the history, we deeply resent the implications and reject any suggestion that in this case or any other case that they’ve allowed a person’s race to direct their activities. However we hope they will reflect upon their past comments and apologize to the men and women of the Cambridge Police Department.”
The White House said today that President Obama regrets the furor over his comments.
…But, not the comments.
More… The racists at the Huffington Post added this on the controversy–
“White Men Can’t Judge”
More… The black cop at the scene of the crime supported the arrest.
UPDATE: Doctors want an apology from the Apologizer in Chief, too!
Dr. Richard S. Kerr, M.D., a West Virginia Libertarian Party member and a retired doctor with 36 years experience, asked President Barack Obama Thursday to apologize for comments made in his Wednesday night press conference accusing doctors of conspiring to make children sicker for profits.
Hat Tip Gregory
Nice work, Chief.
You somehow managed to p*ss off American docs and cops in one press conference.
