Professor Gates, Pres Obama and Cambridge PD

In response to the disorderly conduct arrest of Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates, President Barack Obama commented that the Cambridge Police Department "acted stupidly" during a press conference on July 22, 2009. He also said he may be "a little bias" because Gates was a friend and he didn't have all of the facts.

Two days later, Obama said he did not mean give the impression "that I was maligning the Cambridge police department and Sergeant Crowley." He went on to say that both Gates and Crowley "probably overreacted."
