ABC: Obama Defends Criticism of Cambridge Police in Arrest of Gates


“I have to say I am surprised by the controversy surrounding my statement,because I think it was a pretty straightforward commentary that you probably don’t need to handcuff a guy, a middle-aged man who uses a cane, who’s in his own home,” Obama said.

In an exclusive interview with ABC’s Terry Moran to air on “Nightline” tonight, Obama said it doesn’t make sense to him that the situation escalated to the point that Gates was arrested.
