New twist on beer summit
Paul K. writes:
This is an interesting development: Crowley is bringing back-up to his White House meeting:LA replies:
This is much better. With the inclusion of the president and the lawyer of the Officers Association, the meeting loses the aura of a silly and demeaning social get together (demeaning to Crowley, that is) in which Crowley implies by his very presence (1) that he has forgiven Gates’s outrageous smears of him, and (2) that he accepts Obama’s statements (a) that he, Crowley, “overreacted” along with Gates, and (b) that such overreaction is typical of racist white police and the reason there are so many more blacks in prison than other groups. Instead, the get together becomes more of a substantive discussion among people with very different views, and a harmonious outcome is not assured, which is even better.
