Sgt. Crowley Taught Racial Profiling Classes

Henry Louis Gates, Jr. offered to educate Sgt. James Crowley about the issue of racial profiling.

Professor Gates, your services are not required.

It turns out that Sgt. Crowley has been teaching a class on racial profiling at the Lowell Police Academy for the past five years and he was handpicked to do by Ron Watson, the former Chief of Police for the City of Cambridge. It is worth noting that Watson is African-American. Would Watson have tabbed Crowley if he thought Crowley was a "racist officer" much less a "rogue cop"?

Can you hear it? It's the sound of Professor Gates' credibility going out the window.
