President Obama on the arrest of Gates, racial profiling

Breaking: President is a Black Guy | TPM
Here are some salient facts. The house was Gates' house. From what I understand, no one disputes that prior to his arrest and while in the house, Gates provided proof that the house was his. When you have those facts and the guy whose house it is ends up getting arrested, I think that's prima facie evidence of bad police work. We certainly can't know it was racism. And perhaps there are extraordinary facts that would show the arrest was proper -- that all the escalation came from Gates, was unwarranted and left the officer no choice but to arrest him. But I think the assumption has to be that the officer mishandled the situation. Because we hire the police to protect us from burglars breaking into our homes, not to arrest us in our own homes if we get a little miffed at being mistaken for burglars. Police are trained to prevent situations like that from escalating. They're professionals. And I suspect that people who actually train recruits in best practices policing procedure, as opposed to political analyst and GOP press secretaries, would probably agree with that. I'm failing in my efforts to feign shock that the president said it.

Walter Cronkite passes, age 92

Walter Cronkite was a journalist, and that's the highest praise I can offer. He went into the field, got the facts, analyzed them, then reported the truth based upon those facts. He respected and upheld the Fourth Estate role of the news industry, a crucial component of democratic governance. That we revere him in his absence and pine for people like him to do that job means we are in a lot of trouble. No embed: Walter Cronkite, 1968
