Stupid Cambridge police?

According to the Associated Press:
The white police sergeant criticized by President Barack Obama for arresting black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. in his Massachusetts home is a police academy expert on racial profiling.

Cambridge Sgt. James Crowley has taught a class on racial profiling for five years at the Lowell Police Academy after being hand-picked for the job by former police Commissioner Ronny Watson, who is black, said Academy Director Thomas Fleming.

Last night President Obama, who admitted that he knew very little about the case, said the police acted stupidly.

How does the President know that when he admits that he was not very familiar with the case? President Obama apparently assumed that since the officer was white and the other man was black, it must have been the officer's fault. It must have been the officer who reacted stupidly.

Never once did the President wonder if, perhaps, the officer had to deal with an arrogant, snobbish, combative university professor.

Perhaps Jeremiah Wright had more influence on Obama than he is willing to admit.

The President owes the Cambridge police a public apology.
