Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden have a beer with Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates …

It's happy hour at the White House. President Obama, Joe Biden, Henry Louis Gates Jr., and James Crowley are clinking beer glasses in the White House Rose Garden
Police Sgt. James Crowley spoke after meeting with President Barack Obama and Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., along with Vice President Joe Biden. Crowley described himself and Gates as "two gentlemen who agreed to disagree" about the confrontation that led to Gates' arrest.

He said that the conversation centered on moving forward, not reliving the events of the past two weeks, and that they plan more meetings.

Another bloviating black playing the race card... Me, you, Gates-everyone is compelled by law to shut up and do what the investigating officer says, no exceptions.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information when the BS wears off..

Crowley gets a Budwiser, Hussein a Ramadan Root Beer, and Professor Gates a Colt 45 Malt Liquor.

Now what sort of beer might our name-dropping little snob victim Gates prefer? Some delicate pilsner micro-brewed and bottled in the "vineyard"? Sporting hand painted labels on hand-blown bottles? Poured into dry-chilled German mugs?

It started out as a casual suggestion: three guys working out their differences over a beer. But President Obama's offer to play host to the cop and the professor entangled in a debate over racial profiling now has the imprimatur of high-level diplomacy. White House aides are downplaying expectations that the beer summit that Obama suggested last week will produce a resolution.
What 0bama is hoping for: to get Gates to say he was a little too upset because the officer overreacted and to trick Office Crowley into saying he overreacted when he was just following procedure. Don't fall for it officer, it's a trap.
The major newspapers and media outlets are waiting to pounce on Office Crowley like a fox on a rabbit. One slip of the tongue and he's done. They want this policeman to be a racist ... so far, no such luck, but they'll keep trying to corner him. There's nothing to work out. This is not a feud. This is an arrest that has been resolved. Office Crowley need not apologize for anything.

Obama seems to think this is a feud. This is an occasion for Gates to issue an apology for his outrageous behavior.
Hopefully Officer Crowley will not fall for the set up to make him look like a bad guy and Gates as the poor mistreated black guy and BHO as mister wonderful.

Officer Crowley should decline the invitation.

I do NOT think Officer Crowley should meet with Obama and Gates for a beer at the White House

I do NOT think Officer Crowley should meet with Obama and Gates for a beer at the White House. They are just using him. Obama need to diffuse this debacle and is using him and Gates to get more face time. Officer Crowley would be making a big mistake attending that "so call beer drinking party." And lowering himself to be thought of as some stereotypical white Cop who drinks beer and eats donuts is an insult. Being a Police Office is a hard working, low paying job that is usually misunderstood. Police officers probably work harder and longer then any other job and still have very little respect. Especially when compared to a Harvard Professor.

Sgt. James Crowley who arrested renowned black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. said Thursday he's disappointed President Obama said officers acted "stup

Well at least the police officer knows how to do HIS job unlike Obama trying to run this country into the ground which he was elected to protect. Let me see, the officer is supposed to protect the public and property. someone calls and says two men are breaking into a house, which from a distance it looked like they were, door was stuck and they are trying to force it open?, and this supposedly intelligent Professor isn't happy that his neighbors are watching out for his property, not flipping out when the officer is trying to determine what is going on? Trying to work with the police to get the misunderstanding corrected, not assuming theat there is bias in the officers motive? What is stupid is the President of the United States sticking his nose where it doesn't belong, what is stupid is a book smart common seance stupid liberal professor preventing a police officer from doing his job.
The racist clown we have as President should have been above the fray and waited for all of the facts. He is clearly not a leader but is the divider we all knew he would be. This is not the first time he has injected race into an issue.
Now he joins the ranks of frauds such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton (remember Tawna Brawley who tried to ruin a white officer's good name? Did she ever get charged for anything). Obama further demeans the office of the president by attacking individuals like a police officer or Rush Lambaugh. Yes there will be racism in America as long as people play the R card as the first line of defense, and who stir the pot.

NYPD officer shot while confronting gunman in Queens

A police officer responding to a violent domestic dispute on a Queens street was shot Sunday morning during a struggle with an ex-con, cops said.

Officer Rodney Lewis, 40, was expected to survive though the bullet missed his protective vest entirely, passing through its armhole before striking the cops' underarm, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said.

But the bullet only hit muscle, sparing Lewis' life, Kelly said.

"He wanted to be a cop all his life," said Mayor Bloomberg, who stood with Kelly at a press conference at Wyckoff Hospital and added that the injured officer was already anxious to get back to work.

Lewis and his partner Mark Bublin, who are both assigned to the 104th Precinct, rushed to Menahan St. in Ridgewood just before 5 a.m., police said.

They were responding to a 911 call made by Hazel Campana, a transgendered woman who had returned home from a party a short time earlier with her boyfriend Carlos, police sources said.

They began to squabble, and Campana - who police sources said used to be named Robert Campana - accused Carlos of stealing from her purse.
Carlos, who sports a teardrop tattoo under his eye, then hit Campana, who called police and a friend, who in turn called the victim's ex-boyfriend, Edwin Santana.

Santana, who was convicted of manslaughter in 1991 and is wanted on a current parole violation, confronted Campana and Carlos on the sidewalk minutes later, police said.

"Santana shows up to defend her honor," a police source said.

A second 911 call was then made, describing "a bald man with a gun," according to sources. Officers Lewis and Bublin spotted Santana, who is bald, with a bulge in his jacket and ordered him to stop but the ex-con refused, Kelly said.

The cops struggled with Santana and tried to remove an old 32-caliber handgun from his waistband, said Kelly, who later displayed the 60-year-old weapon.

The weapon was knocked loose, and a single round was discharged when it hit the pavement, striking Lewis under his left arm, Kelly said.

Though he was struck, Lewis still managed to help his partner subdue Santana. He then said, "I'm shot," and his colleagues rushed him to the hospital.

Jose Moran, 32, heard the commotion while stocking shelves at a nearby bodega.

"I heard shots and came upstairs," said Moran. "I saw maybe six police officers carrying another one into a police car and they drove away."

Lewis, who is married, was conscious when colleagues put him in a squad car and rushed him to Wyckoff Hospital. He will be moved later today to New York Weill-Cornell Medical Center.

Lewis joined the NYPD four-and-a-half years ago after he spent two years with the Corrections Department. Before that, he laid floors for a living, Kelly said.

Santana, 33, was arrested at the scene and charges against him are pending, police said. Campana's current boyfriend - who may also have had a weapon - has not yet been located, police said.

Man fatally shot by NYPD after long chase.

An upper Manhattan car chase that ended when police fatally shot the driver was touched off by two men who claimed they were robbed, but it turned out they had been trying to buy drugs from the driver, police said Thursday.

The incident began late Wednesday in Manhattan's Washington Heights neighborhood when a man came up to officers saying he'd just been robbed by four people in a Cadillac. It was discovered later that the man and his friend had paid the men about $500 for what they thought was marijuana, but turned out to be some other substance, said Paul Browne, chief spokesman for the New York Police Department.

One of the officers tapped his badge on the window of the Cadillac and asked the driver to roll down the window, but instead the driver rammed two cars and took off down the street. Police from three separate units pursued the Cadillac up and down neighborhood streets and the Henry Hudson Parkway before cornering it about 15 minutes later.

Once cornered, the driver slammed into a motorcycle which got stuck under the car and was dragged. Then the driver reversed, apparently trying to dislodge the motorcycle, and hit a pedestrian. Both the pedestrian and motorcyclist suffered minor injuries.

The Cadillac headed toward an officer in the street, who yelled to stop and fired one round into the windshield, Browne said. The officer fired another shot when the driver continued toward him.

The driver, a 36-year-old Manhattan man, was hit in the neck and died at a local hospital. His name was not released pending family notification. The other three occupants were not injured and taken into custody, Browne said. Charges were pending.

Deadly force guidelines steer officers away from shooting at moving vehicles, but police are allowed to use deadly force when they face an imminent threat of injury or death.
