So What Are The Police Supposed To Do?

Here is the story. The police are called to investigate a reported break in. A white policeman ends up arresting a belligerent black man. The man is a Harvard Black Studies Professor. We later discover that he is a "friend" of the current President of the United States.

The President of the United States sets up a reporter at a nationally televised "town hall" speech to ask about the arrest of his friend. The President stated that the police "acted stupidly". He tries to get the public to believe this was a spontaneous response to a spontaneous question and it was a spontaneous misuse of the word "stupidly".

A number of people, mostly black, quickly came out claiming "black profiling" by police. What are the police supposed to do, arrest a white man who insults them, but accept all verbal abuse any black man? Why, because we now have a black skinned president?

I have an idea! Why don't we stop arresting any and all black people for any and all reasons! Call it reverse profiling! Let's see how long it would take for people of all races to start screaming for action. Just a thought.


Post Script: The President also had run in with the same "stupidly acting" police force when he resided in Cambridge as a student at Harvard. It seems they "profiled" his automobile and gave it tickets many times when it was illegally parked. He only saw fit to pay the fines after he decided to run for President.
