Obama Claims Cambridge PD Acted "Stupidly"; Admits He Doesn't Know Facts of Case

During tonight's press conference on health care, President Obama was asked a question about last week's arrest of Harvard University Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

While President Obama admitted he did not know all of the facts behind the case he nonetheless concluded the Cambridge Police Department had "acted stupidly" in arresting Gates because "there was already proof that they were in their own home."

Well, if President Obama had known the facts of the case he would have known that Gates was arrested for disorderly conduct not for breaking & entering.

His statement does a disservice to law enforcement and the principle of equal justice for all.

But what do you expect of a President who remarks he would be shot if he tried to force the locks at the White House?

The joke was in poor taste and so were his misinformed comments about the Cambridge Police Department.

At least Sgt. James Crowley is standing his ground and refuses to apologize for doing his job.
