Lashley Asked Crowley in Letter to Share at "Beer Summit" He Has Been Branded an "Uncle Tom" - Video 7/30/09


Here is video of CNN's Don Lemon reading a letter by Sgt. Leon Lashley, an African-American police officer who was present at the scene along with Sgt. James Crowley the night Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates was arrested. Lashley has backed Sgt. James Crowley 100% in the controversy.

Lashley reportedly wanted Crowley to share the contents of the letter with President Obama and Professor Gates, but there is no indication whether or not the message was actually shared.

Lashley says in the letter that he has been branded an "Uncle Tom" as a result of the controversy, and his standing by Sgt. Crowley. He asks in the letter for Professor Gates to seriously "reflect" on his actions and what he could have done differently.
