Well, finally Cambridge officials have released the 911 tapes that Lucia Whalen made to Cambridge police on July 16, 2009. That's the call which started a racial tsunami of emotions in the US and around the world as world reknowned scholar Prof. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. was arrested in his own home for disorderly conduct.
Turns out, Ms. Whalen never said that she saw two black men with backpacks. She saw two men with suitcases and she wasn;t sure if they lived in the house or not. After being questioned by the dispatcher, she says that they were bother 'larger' and one looked 'hispanic'.
But, Sgt. Crowley says in his report clearly, 'two black men with backpacks'. So where did he get that from or was it just his assumption that all people breaking into houses are black?
I am seriously laughing at Ms. Whalen's claim through her attorney that she is olive skinned and of Portuguese decent. Portugal is in Europe and its people are classified as 'caucausian'.
Am waiting to hear the ones with Sgt. Crowley and Prof. Gates.
