I really hate it when people gang up on one person

Here's a pretty funny blog entry, but in the comments everyone gangs up on rmrd0000. I happen to agree with him; the Civil War was worth fighting, and Henry Louis Gates has every right to not be treated like a slave, especially in his own home. Also, I think cops should be held to a higher standard- maybe their right to not be assaulted should be limited, since they are authorized by the state to use deadly force. That said, I'm a homeowner and a taxpayer, and decidedly pro-cop. I've experienced profiling and even brutality at the hands of the police first-hand, but I still think that they are our best option for dealing with violent crime, which is a problem for ALL AMERICANS.
