Not that I’m surprised about it, but I’m amazed that the biggest article on the Gates/Crowley affair is an interview of Gates, done by his daughter.
Daddy, how did it feel to read in the police report that although you had been cooperative with Sgt. Crowley, while he was standing uninvited in your home, your behavior had been reduced to “loud and tumultuous” after asking to see to his badge? Were you surprised at the inaccuracy of the police report?
Well, the police report was an act of pure fiction. One designed to protect him, Sgt. Crowley, from unethical behavior. I was astonished at the audacity of the lies in the police report, and almost the whole thing from start to finish was just pure fabrication. So yes, I felt violated all over again.
When the questions start off with “Daddy”, objective reporting is now out the window.
There’s too many different accounts of this thing going around. Who said what, when, where, and how loudly.
All I can say is, you’ve got to stop looking for racists under every stone before you’ll see there might be one in the mirror.
