Sue the bastard!
Thus speaks the 'ethicist'
in l'affaire Gates. ... I initially fell for it. It's so dry I'm still not sure if I'm supposed to fall for it or not. ... OK, the tapes
seem to prove
one thing: We're back to a variation of square one
. This wasn't a classic case of racial profiling. Not even the initial caller was offering up a profile. This was more a case of two guys overreacting. ... One small discrepancy: I got the impression the decision to arrest Gates occurred toward the very end of the incident -- and yet the paddy wagon sure seemed to be called in quick. Maybe the tape sequence was off. ... I like the Cambridge cop's response to a question: “I have no comment on this anymore.”
