Man arrested for "breaking and entering" own house

A few days back I posted a story about a "whites only pool", but this story is even more baffling...Henry Louis Gates, an African-American man who is a Yale graduate, a PBS documentarian and one of time magazines "25 most influential americans" was arrested.
Can you guess what he was arrested for? Breaking and entering -only it was his own home.

Now there are two sides to every story and the cops have their own version of it, but I am not buying it...they said that Gates was being hysterical and calling the cops racist. He was probably just pissed that he was being arrested for "breaking into" his own home and rightly so. Stories like these anger me, and I do not understand why this happens today. With Barack Obama as president, you kinda assume that people dont carry that small minded mentality anymore.

This story is so unexpected, can you imagine someone being arrested for something like this? A 58 year old man and a Harvard professor no less.

  1. It was just a sad situation. But who the hell called the cops in the first place? What if a black neighbor called the cops on him? That would be something.
