Sgt. Leon Lashley: Quality Human Being

By Wyatt Earp | July 31, 2009

lashley statement

Hopefully, this will be the last time we have to talk about that racist Henry Louis Gates and President Obama’s idiotic comments about his friend’s arrest. It’s enough of this nonsense. but this is a story that has to be told. Allahpundit has the details:

Initially I thought Crowley was a bit of a chump to join in The One’s photo op after being smeared by him. But now I think it was all worth it:

A black sergeant who was at the home of Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. when he was arrested says he’s been maligned as an “Uncle Tom” for supporting the actions of the white arresting officer.

Cambridge Sgt. Leon Lashley gave a letter to Sgt. James Crowley to give to President Barack Obama during their so-called beer summit with Gates on Thursday night at the White House.

In the letter, which was also sent to CNN, Lashley says Gates “may have caused grave and potentially irreparable harm to the struggle for racial harmony.” (H/THot Air)

Sergeant Lashley is absolutely correct here. As is sometimes the case in today’s p.c. America, the person who cries racism the loudest is usually found out to be either a liar or a racist himself. Gates may be an esteemed professor in Harvard yard, but in the real world, he is no better than any other race baiter. I am glad that Sergeant Lashley realizes that.

As for Sergeant Crowley, I think it is important to note that he (as opposed to Gates) took the high ground during all of this. he could have easily told Obama to shove his “Beer Summit,” but he didn’t. And that, dear readers, is what makes Crowley (and Lashley) a true professional.

Gates? Eh, not so much.

    In the Marine Corp the guy with the M-14 or the M-79 that was watching my back was: white, black, hispanic,American Indian etc., and ya know by and large most of us were truly colorblind. Good to see that that spirit exists still in our police forces by and large.

    If anyone ever calls you a racist for picking on obambi, for whatever it is the socialist/marxist does, just remind them he’s still half white:) LOL

    It’s awesome that he called out Gates; good for him.

    And did you see “typical” Biden: he was a last minute addition to the ‘meeting’, missed the toast/glass clanging and then the ass-bag drinks a non-alcoholic beer. Really Joe???

    In today’s society, he’s really sticking his neck out. Nice to see he’s willing to do that to extinguish the flames.

    Hmmmm…….let’s review:

    Black person calls 911 because local McDonalds is out of Chicken McNuggets. No action taken

    Black person calls 911 because of “cold french fries” No action taken.

    Would it have been “racism” if they had been arrested for using the 911 service for these incidents?

    You make the call.

    Jon – Usually, that is the case in the PPD, as well. My first partner was Latino, and he was the first on the list at my wedding. You need good people to watch your back, and they come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

    Randal – He is Washington’s version of Debbie Downer.

    Doghouse – Agreed. Again, he is a quality individual, and probably a great supervisor.

    RAPH – The funniest thing I have ever experienced was when a local “reverend” protested outside the division, stating that the majority of people arrested in the area were African-American. We just laughed, because my divisional population is about 75-90% African American.

    In the video of this, Don Lemon tries to correct the officer’s english even though it is grammatically correct. I don’t know whether he was trying to slam him or if Don himself is just ignorant.

    Anyone who calls Sergeant Lashley an Uncle Tom is simply beyond reasoning with.

    Gates is the real Uncle Tom and his one and only job in life is to cry wolf.

    God help him if a real wolf shows up on his doorstep someday.

    Just think how much Slow Joe would shoot off at the mouth if he was drunk.

    I’m absolutely positive that Czechs are a problem in that neighborhood but you are just too racist to see it. Otherwise, why would the good “reverend” be protesting?

    My point in my last post was, isn’t making a frivolous 911 call a violation of the law? And if so, is it racist to arrest someone for doing so? Is it possible that the police are intimidated by the “racist” tag that these people are NOT arrested? How would the police handle the situation if the caller was white? Just curious.

    Anyway, thank you for being out there. Being a cop is a damn tough job and one that, frankly, I would not be able to do. Having a very low tolerance for stupidity, I wouldn’t last 10 minutes.

    Again. Thank you!

    I think I read somewhere (today) that Crowley has taken the step to reach out to Gates, too.

    I’m glad Crowley is getting a lot of support. Class act.

    When even the blacks in a socialist republic like Massachusetts are turning their collective backs on the Obamessiah, you know your screwed in 2012. I’m surprised CeeNoNews ran this and not Fox.
