Soledad can't express an opinion on whether or not the president last night should have condemned the Cambridge police, but is all too eager to shame Sgt James Crowley for daring to admit that he felt Gates was innocent of b&e during his investigation at Gates' house, and even that he thought a citizen would be grateful that someone was alert and concerned enough about a neighbor's property being possibly burglarized to call the police for help.

After all, that call Crowley answered could have been his last.

In O'Brien's mind, the reality of what a police officer has to go through for their paltry salary every day isn't on her radar. The fact that a police officer who has been an advocate against racial profiling for 10 years is all erased in one segment where O'Brien tries to portray Crowley's frank admission of empathy towards Gates as an example of WHITE FOLKS JUST NOT GETTING IT.

For children like O'Brien and the many minorities who think like her, white police officers are out to get them. In my hometown of Christiansburg, Virginia, the only cases of police being shot for the past 200 years have been from white officers who tried to grapple with a black culprit instead of drawing their weapons, and then the black assailant rips the gun from the policeman's holster, shoots and kills them. America is a lot bigger than where the Soledad Obrien's, Henry Gates', and Barry Obama's live.

What she knows is the average police-hater's angle on issues such as this. She has a "Black In America" program to promote, so being fair-minded and objective be damned.
