It was the neighbor that "racially profiled" Gates.
I think Gates should hold a ten
-million man march on his neighbor's lawn. That'll teach him to call 911 again...
Gates either locked himself out or was just having trouble getting his door open. The neighbor called police because Gates was trying to force his way in, banging his shoulder against the door. Apparently, the neighbor didn't recognize him. Just saw a man trying to break in.
