This picture tells the story, but if you’re interested in a good verbal beat down, Thomas Lifson at the American Thinker can oblige:
Sergeant Crowley, the sole class act in this trio, helps the handicapped Professor Gates down the stairs, whileheedless of the infirmities of his friend and fellow victim of self-defined racial profiling, strides ahead on his own. So who is compassionate? And who is so self-involved and arrogant that he is oblivious?’
Speaking of verbal beat downs, see Ace for more about “the beer summit”.
My favorite comment from the American Thinker post, from DW Cripps: <!– Comment: #35 –>
From beginning to end, the one person in this little vingette who has shown professionalism, integrity, restraint, honesty and character has been Sgt. Crowley!! Like many others, I was concerned that the Sergeant might end up being used as a PR tool by BO and Gates. I think that was the ultimate motive behind the so called “beer summit” as arranged by BO. However, by being himself – a man of character- Sgt. Crowley has outshined both Gates and BO. This photo really does put the lie to the charges of racism, rogue cop, acting stupidly, etc., and does expose BO for who and what he truly is.
