Cambridge, Mass Police Release 911 Call & Police Radio Transmissions … Obama’s Own Teachable Moment


So let’s look at the Obama “teachable” moment again as the Cambridge, Massachusetts police department releases the 911 call and the police radio transmissions from July 16, 2009. Maybe Barack Obama would like to inform America where the racial profiling took place? Not once did the concerned caller who made the 911 call refer to the intruders as black. Watch and listen to the call for yourself.

Question to President Barack Obama, who interjected race into the discussion of the arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr.? The 40 year old woman who made the 911 emergency call to police never, never, never, ever mentioned the word “black” in her entire description of events to the 911 operator.

“This woman is 100 percent clear on what she said,” said attorney Wendy J. Murphy, who is representing 911 caller Lucia Whalen. “She never said she saw two black men. She said, ‘It never crossed my mind that there were two black men.’ ”

The following are the radio transmission from the scene, you decide for yourself who needs a lesson in respect for authority and a lesson in racial harmony.

Radio transmission below the fold.

Listen HERE to Radio transmission.

Whether one is white, black or purple, it can be said with 100% certainty that nothing good has ever come from wising off to a police officer. EVER! However, this incident was made a national event because a rookie President, Barack Obama, jumped to the conclusion that racism and racial profiling occurred. The racially healing Obamamessiah’s first thought was racism. So much for electing Obama for healing the difference between the races when Obama just “stupidly” widened it. Is it any wonder American voter give the President low, poor marks on his handling of the incident. As for the “teachable” moment … Juan Williams of Fox News could not have said it any better.

Juan Williams, on Fox News Sunday, did the country an immense service by recounting what exactly occurred: “The president spoke without the facts. You can’t have a ‘teachable moment’ if it’s based on a lie.”

      I didn’t know Obamanation ever spoke WITH facts in place, what he gets for not waiting until he was in front of his teleprompter.

      America got a glimpse of the “real Obama” during last week’s presser. There a factual signs that point towards his resentment towards white people and his country:

      You have him sitting in Rev Wright’s church for 20 years listening to him call white people “white devils.”

      You have his wife admitting for the first time in her life that she was proud of her country (because a black man was up for Pres).

      You have him writing in his own book how his white grandmother used to wince at the sight of a black man and that bothered him and probably soured him some towards whites and his grandmother when he proclaimed he could no more disassociate himself with her then he could with Rev. Wright.

      You have him trying to implent social re-engineering in almost every important element in American life, automobiles, healthcare, cap and trade.

      You have proclaiming in during his campaign that there needs to be a civilian army that is just as fully funded as our US military. If anybody saw the ACORN thread below you will understand what is happening.

      Finally, you have him coming out WITHOUT the REAL FACTS in this case and calling the police “stupidly.” Stupidly? What kind of President uses that type of terminology?

      I’m sick and tired of some of the dirtbag liberals on here i.e. caveman saying the policeman over-reaacted..NO DILWEED! He did not! He responded to a possible burgarly based on a witness who did NOT describe either man as being black. The police officer has a duty to make sure everything is copice. He did that, only to get the wrath of an angry angry man who basically was pissed because he lost his keys in the first place. The police officer was walking down the stairs outside and away from the property when Gates continued to act disorderly. You people that claim otherwise are to stupid to understand, you only see black and white not the law and the duty of a police officer. BTW, this police officer teaches racial profiling.

      This whole beer thing is a ruse in order to win back some trust from the American people because his true colors came out in that presser and the American people saw it and are angry about it.

      I love it. I hope he continues to stick his foot in his arrogant mouth!

      See, as long as you have crap like this going on there will always be racial division in this country. Not everything is about race. Mr. Gates & Mr. President made it a race issue. Sgt. Crowley was doing his job (responding to a 911 call of a possible break in) Nowhere in the 911 call did they mention that it was black men only that there were 2 men barging into the house. Sgt. Crowley was doing his job. Mr. Gates needs to apologize for his actions.

      Mr. President needs to keep his nose out of police business and do his job. Keep his big mouth shut and get the facts before voicing his opinion. He doesn’t know everything.

      Just when you think there are no big black and white issue’s Obama makes it ONE.

      Gates clearly is racist and so is Obama. They play the (so called race card)so well, which I hate. If anything the white officer kept his cool being called racist.

      The only reason Gates got arrested is his disorderly conduct, for shouting at the officer in public and not stopping after being warned twice.

      I would like to hear the 911 tape of the officer with Gates shouting in the background.

      Change you can believe in……

      And by the way….I have black friends so you cant’ say I am racist.

      In short, his azzO’liness acted stupidly in this case. But that’s certainly nothing new: it’s his modus operandi. Strictly amateur hour, 24-7.

      As for Angry Studies professor, the MSM goes out of its way to talk up his “impressive” credentials, but he acted like anything but a man of letters when Sgt Crowley. He’s nothing but a racist heathen like Duh Won’s spiritual mentor for 20 years, Rev. Wright.

      I do wish Sgt Crowley weren’t going for a beer with the two racists, but maybe he’ll teach them a thing or two. I wonder if the good Sgt and the useless perfessor will be on the same plane to DC.

    6. Kommander-in-Thief on July 28th, 2009 11:40 am

      Oops: that is…when Sgt Crowley came knockin’.

      When you have little brain power without the aid of a teleprompter, it makes it very difficult to decide the right thing to do. So Barry the usurper let it fly for his friend professor Gates and proceeded to put his foot in his mouth in front of all the press and the American peole.
      I have been friends with many blacks from the time of my childhood. The average black person that stays away from the “Black Liberation Theology” movement and lives the right kind of life has nothing to fear from the police.
      It is people like Gates that make a living bashing the white American values that create problems for everyone. About forty per cent of the blacks create eighty per cent of the crime in this country. This makes police work very difficult.
      Sgt. Crowley needs to decline the invitation to the white house as he will be going two on one with Gates and Soetoro (aka Obama). Barry is a racist of the first order just like Gates.

      this is what happens to a white man in America at the hand of black racists.

      Not only did Mr. Gates make this about race, it was more about his status ~ “class” ~

      Gates said to Officer Crowley, “do you know who I am?” insinuating a person of means, class and status… a person obviously, whom Officer Crowley, did not know and he was doing his job, investigating when he asked Mr. Gates for his I.D. ~ and this same officer also asked for the Harvard police to become involved…to help I.D. this person inside the home… Mr. Gates was not co-operating, got pissed off and that was the problem, resulting in an arrest for his conduct…

      The Harvard Police, apparently they handled a break in to Gates home a few months earlier apparently this had not been reported to the Cambridge Police Dept. ~ this property is owned by Harvard ~ and may be rented to this occupant…

      Having prior break in’s in this neighborhood… the neighbors were on high alert from increased crime(s) within this particular neighborhood and did the right thing, by calling 911 ~ a passerby contacted police, as did a courteous neighbor…

      If Mr. Gates home had been broken into months earlier, it having been investigated by Harvard P.D., then, he himself was trying to get into his own home, he set himself up to fail here…it didn’t look good, that’s for sure ~ breaking into your own home! and should have been even more courteous, explain to the police, in a nice manner and complied with the officers and said, thank you all the more!… unreal~

      Instead, out comes, “do you know who I am?”… big deal ~ he was asked during proper protocol for a B & E and all he had to do was co operate and be nice… it all would have gone nicely and he would have not been cuffed and taken into custody and arrested for disorderly conduct…

      the 911 caller shared that the man may have been hispanic ~ there were 2 men at the door that she witnessed… another reason, Officer Crowley asked Mr. Gates, if there was anyone else in the household… the man at the front door was apparently, the limousine driver ~ who rode Mr. Gates home from the airport that night… also, another reason, the officer asked if there was someone else in the home… there were 2 men spotted ~… he was asking not only for his safety, but the safety of the unidentified occupant…

      The tapes did not reveal much yelling in the background ~ however, other dispatch may have recorded it…I do hope this will be released… I feel Officer Crowley acted proper and did his job investigating a B & E with his partner…

      This has been so blown out of proportion ~ it’s getting old… it has been made a race issue, when in fact, it has nothing to do with race and everything to do with bad manners to an officer ~

      By the way, a caller on WRKO Boston radio,familiar with Mr. Gates…mentioned that Mr. Gates is a “bully” and often behaves like this ~ the caller said he tends to bully folks due to his status and maybe he was full of himself that day and felt above the law ~ he brought this upon himself and should apologize.

      No lawsuits, PLEASE… apologies should come forth, not lawsuits… how pathetic if it goes that far ~ Mr. Obama, should apologize, as should Duval Patrick, our governor ~ there are more important things going on than this ~ move on, please~ Maybe Mr. Gates wants a platform to push his agenda and selling of more books or get more speaking engagements… he may benefit from anger management ~

    10. kitty on July 28th, 2009 11:08 pm

      it may have been the passerby who shared that the man at the front door may have been hispanic… and not the 911 caller… anyhow, read the Globe or Herald articles… either way, to me, it became about “race” when Mr. Gates, made it become about race… this was about his anger and maybe a wounded ego ~

    11. SUPER DAVE on July 29th, 2009 2:15 pm

      all this african american hoopla ! be extremely glad you are here ! you could be in somalia, the congo, nigeria ! fighting your own for your life and the lives of your families .

      #11 agree…but just wonder why is out past in slavery an issue when all living now never lived in the time of slaves…most of the white people could not have afforded slaves and it was the black race that caught the poor folks to bring to the USA for profit anyway. I think some will always be victims because there is some sort of contorted peace with that, that they are not responsible for making a better world NOW, still living in slavery of the mind.

    13. kampout on July 29th, 2009 11:25 pm

      Listen the President, Said that he did not know the facts, so maybe people should listen. The Presidents own Mom happens to be white so im sure hes not Racist! but at the same time he has darker skin than his mom so he has dealt with the IGNORANCE of some, not all but some white people. He can identify with racism so he mentioned that the Proffesor was in his home, Showed valid ID verifing this,and was upset at the fact that someone who happens to be an OLDER white person would suggest that he was breaking into his own home so yes he was upset at that moment. also i guess race isnt an issue in America Huh? It never existed and we still dont see it, hear it etc. wake up people get frustrated after a while, Lynchings, and other savage history takes its toll. But its a perfect country right….

    14. kampout on July 30th, 2009 12:06 am
