Somethings Don't Make Sense

Posted by Al Hathaway Tuesday, July 21, 2009

The recent arrest of Henry Louis Gates Jr in front of his house after officers answered a call that two black men with backpacks where breaking into a house doesn't make sense. The Cambridge community is populated by well known intellectuals who are attached to the major universities of that community - none greater than Harvard University.


How is it that an officer after identifying that this distinguished African American Professor was locked outside of his own house would dare escalate the encounter to the point that he would arrest Dr. Gates? It doesn't make sense!

African American males are too frequently accosted by police officers who use the power of their badge to justify what appears to be harassment. The legal process protects the officers by allowing them to arrest first and ask questions later.

This time truth will prevail because Dr. Gates is represented by Professor Charles J. Ogletree, a legal giant of our times.

"Truth forever on the scaffold, Wrong forever on the throne,-
Yet that scaffold sways the future, and, behind the dim unknown,
Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above his own."
