Question of the Day: July 24, 2009

A story that may have caused some local uprisings has now become frontpage news and a national debate. Earlier this week a Harvard professor was arrested at his home because police thought he may be robber. Then during the president's primetime address President Obama said the police "acted stupidly."

Details of the arrest have been contested by Professor Gates and the police. But we want to know:

Should the President have commented on the arrest of the Harvard professor?
