The furor first erupted when the Prez - rightly so - scolded a Police Officer for handcuffing and subsequently charging an Afro-American Professor for disorderly conduct at his home.
In a nutshell, Obama called the racist cop "stupid" - at which point - Police Brass went on the warpath.
In a news conference, the arrogant law enforcement low-life's complained to all within ear shot that the assessment was not only harsh, but uncalled for.
"Without a full picture of what happened, Obama should have stayed out of the picture," one angry Police Official asserted for the record.
And, when the President took a leap - and expressed his view that the incident smacked of racial profiling - the outcry was swift and severe.
For a moment, it appeared a lynching may be in the offing
"The supervisors and the patrol officers of the Cambridge Police Department deeply resent the implication and reject any suggestions that in this case or any other case they have allowed race to direct their activities," Sgt. Dennis O'Connor (President of the Cambridge Police Superior Officers Association) hissed.
Now, in the midst of the controversy, the Prez has backed down.
What a wimp!
Is Obama going to roll over for these pigs in Cambridge and take it up the a**?
Frankly, I think that Barack should turn in those "Mom Jeans" he wore when he threw the 1st pitch at a recent baseball match back east, and trade 'em in for a snazzy pair of "No Excuses".
For starters, Barack was not "off the mark" - nor did he speak improperly - when he simply called a "spade a spade."
Like or not, the Police force has - and will probably continue to engage in racial profiling - until the department is purged of rogue cops who wantonly and illegally engage in racist conduct.
In fact, when I was on holiday in Las Vegas a few months ago, I personally witnessed an arrest going down on the strip which smacked of racial profiling from the get-go.
But, there is a bigger picture that Barack Obama and Law Enforcements Officials have to keep their eyes focused on.
"Abuse of Power" under the Color of Authority.
The near-riot in MacArthur Park last year is a perfect example.
In spite of the fact thousands of witnesses stepped forward to provide testimony to establish the truth about the shocking conduct of Officers that railed throughout that fateful day, the Police Chief continued to manipulate the facts and evidence behind-the-scenes with the ultimate aim of bolstering the image of the LAPD at the expense of the victims.
Denial! Denial! Denial!
In another shocking incident a few weeks ago, which I penned a post on, the LAPD Vice Squad engaged in conduct that was not only questionable but downright criminal in nature.
In that post I noted that a middle-aged man was falsely accused of committing a crime, unlawfully detained, handcuffed, and subjected to various humilities in front of strangers on the street.
At one point - with the deceitful aim of turning in a neat and tidy package to a superior (a police report and collar) one corrupt rookie cop intimidated the witness (a criminal offense) and tried to coerce the alleged suspect into admitting to a crime (he did commit) to avoid prosecution (of a Felony).
Of course - the incidents of racial profiling, unlawful arrest, rights violations, and abuse of power under the color of authority - go on and on.
Until Police Chiefs around the country fess up, Barack Obama - in particular - should not let up.
If investigations and paper trails aren't going to get to the truth and result in charges being brought against offending Officers, then the fascist pigs must be tried in the public court of opinion - humiliated, exposed, defamed under the glare of the spotlight - if that is what it takes to turn the tide.
I say, go get 'em Tiger!
In closing, I part with a quiz.
Q: "What is a synonym for a Police Officer?"
A: A Professional Liar!
