When the President calls you out you know it's that ass!
Obama aired out the Cambridge Police Department last night at the end of his healthcare speech:
"I think it's fair to say, No. 1, any of us would be pretty angry; No. 2, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, No. 3 ... that there's a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately."
The incident, Obama said, shows "how race remains a factor in this society."
I think it's safe to say there will be some openings at the police department soon.
