Obama: Police who arrested professor 'acted stupidly'

President Obama said police in Cambridge, MA, "acted stupidly" in arresting a prominent black Harvard professor after a confrontation at the man's home.  

"I don't know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played," [but I'll comment on it anyway] Obama said while taking questions after a White House news conference.

Cambridge authorities dropped disorderly conduct charges against Henry Louis Gates Jr. on Tuesday.
