HECK, HE APOLOGIZES TO EVERY FOREIGNER HE MEETS:

Police unions call for apology from Obama, Patrick (Jonathan Saltzman and Andrew Ryan, 7/24/09, Boston Globe)

Police unions today called on President Obama and Governor Deval Patrick to apologize to "all law enforcement personnel," saying they "deeply resent the implication" of their comments about racial profiling and the arrest of an African-American scholar last week at his home near Harvard Square.

Speaking at a press conference at the Hotel Marlowe packed with local and national media, the union officials also said that the disorderly conduct charge should not have been dropped against professor Henry Louis Gates Jr.
