Update: Boston Globe Now Posts Redacted Revised Docket On Gates

To read the full narrative, check out the original police report.
As allegations mount that the Racial Profiling Debate was triggered by Obama's comments on Prof Gates, NewsBusters author P.J. Gladnick reports the Boston Globe Scrubs Henry Louis Gates Arrest Report From Website.

The Globe published an article about the Gates arrest written by Tracy Jan which does refer to the police report but, unfortunately, you can no longer read the full report on the Boston Globe site since it has been removed by that newspaper.
Continue reading here for some excerpts from the Boston Globe that do refer to the deleted police report.
