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

If a pizza delivery guy came to Gates' porch and Skip said something rude about his mother, you know what society asks that poor guy to do? It asks him to walk away and fume.

So why do we treat the police officer any differently than the pizza delivery guy in terms of etiquette? Are we to the point where we have a whole different set of social expectations for people in authority? They have a dangerous job, so they get to take people to jail regardless of the merits?
