      The Cambridge police unions -- for all ranks -- just held a press conference basically refusing any reconciliation, demanding apologies from Gates, the mayor, the governor, and the president, and asserting with a straight face that there have never been any incidents of improper police conduct in Cambridge.  Not one.

        Black people are taking a hit with this IMO because this situation has been completely turned around and the interpretation is now "poor innocent police oppressed by arrogant blacks playing the race card."  It's complete bullshit, as was Professor Gates' arrest.  I understand President Obama's actions here and approve, because he's not a civil rights activist; he's POTUS.  But this doesn't give me warm fuzzies for a second.
