[quote:Lost Fisherman:MV84NDcwNzNfMTMxNDQ1MDhfMjBDNzRDMkM=] [quote:Reece2076] I admit Gates was asking for trouble by talking smack to the cop. However the cop had no right to arrest him. For those who think he did, then why were the charges dropped almost immediately? [/quote] The cop most certainly did have the right to arrest Gates, on the charge of disturbing the peace, which is a catch-all charge to allow temporary detainment. Charges are often dropped quickly once the details of an incident are determined. Gates wouldn't identify himself, wouldn't co-operate with a law enforcement official who could not ascertain the nature of the disturbance because of Gates' belligerence, and the cops had a credible report of a B&E. And, the cops had no way of knowing if a perp was out of sight in the house waiting to pounce with a shotgun. The situation could have de-escalated rapidly if Gates would have simply produced his driver's license instead of trying to make a political statement. We live in an allegedly civil society. Gates should have behaved civilly. Obama shoulda kept his trap shut. [/quote]
When they come for your guns will you just give them up because the police officer asked you to. Will you then just comply because the cop is just doing his job.
The responses to many of the threads about the Gates incident has showed me that many of you will do what you're told because the cop is just doing his job. A lot of you believe a cop has the right to arrest you if you dare speak up about a perceived injustice.

A lot of you talk a big game from your keyboards. But this incident just goes to show that when the time comes many of you will just comply. In fact I'll take it a step further and say many of you will probably help round the "troublemakers" up.
