The response was to the text that was block quoted. That point is moot, as Gates admitted to behavior that would appear to an observer to be a "break-in" (although legal for him to do because it is his house). Gates himself does not contest that he tried to "shoulder" open the door. Ergo, your point is moot.

The second part of my most occupied about 90% of what I was trying to get across.
