Great piece from Frank Rich on the Gates-gate from Sunday's NY Times. But I also think this commentator is right on the money. Little noted the brouhaha is the fact that, yes, even white people can expect to face arrest or worse if they offer any lip to police during a traffic stop, street encounter, etc. Such “street justice” has been assumed by police and accepted by the public for generations. Our acceptance of same might be worth a rethink.
