Default Re: The Arrest of Henry Louis Gates, Jr. (Emily Bazelon & Farai Chideya)

It's insincere to draw an equivalence between someone with government power using the law to unfairly punish a private citizen and the citizen being punished.

That's not a case of 'they're both in the wrong'. That's what I mean by insincere. I guess I'm giving people the benefit of the doubt that they don't really believe that police should be able to detain people at any time for any reason, regardless of the law.

But maybe there are people who sincerely believe that. I'd like to hope there aren't many in either party. The last week has made me worry about that point, though.
