Report: Prof, cop both screwed up during racial-profiling incident


Last July, there was a giant kerfuffle after Henry Louis Gates, a Harvard professor, was arrested for disorderly conduct and accused a Cambridge, Mass., police officer, Sgt. James Crowley, of racial profiling. (Which eventually led to a "beer summit" at the White House.) The police department commissioned a study of the incident, and the writers have reached a shocking conclusion: The professor and the cop were both acting like morons. They put it a little more artfully: The two sides "missed opportunities to de-escalate the encounter."
