From ace correspondent Mark Breton:
I think it's a sad day in America, because our President profiles white cops. He has assumed that the responding officer did something wrong, something racist, because he is white, regardless of the lack of facts in evidence and in the face of years of professional conduct and character witnesses testifying to his professionalism.
The President takes the opportunity to shoot his mouth off about one poor guy just trying to do his job, a police officer who puts his life on the line every day, because it could have been anyone in that house, and that's a fact. This officer was trying to protect that homeowner's property and he gets harassed to no end because he insisted on establishing that the man was the homeowner. What was he supposed to do, run away so he wouldn't look like he was hatin', because it was a black man who happened to be in the house?
Our tolerant and enlightened President steps right in the middle of something that he should have left alone; in his ignorance he thought this situation provided him one more political opportunity to drive the wedge of racism and intolerance between all of us again and he couldn't pass it up. Way to go, O. --Mark Breton
