This is one of those moments where we are going to look back and say that that was the day that it changed. This is really a turning point for all of us. How this turns out will determine where our country is heading for the next decade.
A police officer receives a call for service. The caller states that there are two black men with backpacks at a house in an affluent neighbourhood. One of them is banging on the front door with his shoulder, trying to break the door down. The call is from a concerned neighbour. The officer responds and finds the front door broken and a black male inside the residence.
The officer professionally makes contact and asks the guy what he is doing. The guy immediately starts screaming that he is a "racist cop" and starts calling the chief of police, the mayor, and the governor. He refuses to identify himself as the owner of the house until he is through berating the officer. Eventually the officer identifies him as the owner and as he is leaving the guy continues to make a very large scene outside the house yelling, and screaming at the officer that he is a racist for doing his job. The officer arrests him for breaking the law, disorderly conduct. There is no question that he broke the law.
The guy is a professor at Harvard and he has raised such a stink about the incident that the president felt compelled to hold a press conference in which he stated that he "doesn't know the facts" but he thought that the "police acted stupidly".
The police did not act stupidly. They did their job just as they were supposed to. The police are not racists in this case, the home owner is. Are we going to let the criminals run the show, or are we going to grow a backbone and tell them to cease and desist?
Our country used to be run by real men and heroes, and I suspect that Sgt. Crowley was raised by one of those men. This reminded me of a recent clip I saw on Live leak where one true hero of our country, Buzz Aldrin, silenced a liberal idiot who assaulted him in public:
We don't have to sit back and let everyone ruin this country that so many have given so much for. Lets take it back and stand up for what is right, instead of pandering to racists and people demanding a free handout.
