Obama Says Gates Cops “Acted Stupidly”

From an unquestioning Reuters:

Obama: Police acted "stupidly" arresting black scholar

By Matt Spetalnick Wed Jul 22

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama said on Wednesday police had acted "stupidly" in arresting a prominent black Harvard University scholar at his own home, weighing in on escalating debate over the treatment of minorities by U.S. law enforcement officers.

Obama, the United States’ first black president, acknowledged at a prime-time White House news conference, he did not know all the facts about the arrest last week of Henry Louis Gates at his residence in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

But Obama, reciting details from news reports, left little doubt he felt Gates had been wronged in the incident, which has created a media furor.

Gates, a renowned expert on race whom Obama described as a friend, was detained for alleged disorderly conduct — a charge that was quickly dropped — after a confrontation with a white police officer inside his own house.

"I don’t know — not having been there and not seeing all the facts — what role race played in that, but I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry," Obama said when asked about the case.

"Number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home," he added.

While stressing that his own election last November was a testament to progress in race relations, Obama pointed out there was a "long history" in the United States of blacks and Hispanics being singled out disproportionately by police.

"That’s just a fact," he said.

He said Gates’ arrest was a reminder that the race issue "still haunts us."

The incident took place last Thursday when a woman called Cambridge police to report that a man was trying to force his way into the house.

Obama joked that if he ever tried to "jimmy the lock" at his current address — the White House — "I’d get shot." The digression drew laughter from journalists who until then had peppered him with questions about healthcare and the economy…

Despite Mr. Obama’s libel, the police acted professionally. Not even our watchdog media can find anything for which they can be faulted.

Indeed, not even Mr. Gates himself has been able to point to anything the did that was wrong, apart from his obvious lie that they refused to identify themselves.

Moreover, it is abundantly clear from the arrest record that race had nothing to do with any of this. Except for Mr. Gates’ own racist attacks on the police officers involved – at least one of whom was black.

“I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry," Obama said when asked about the case.

Angry at what?

That the police risked their lives to respond to a neighbor’s call that someone was breaking into your house? That they put their lives on the line to protect your property? Or would anyone be angry when they are asked to prove their identity?

Or did Mr. Obama mean that any of us would be angry for being arrested after refusing to cooperate with the police and after calling them racists and creating a public disturbance?

Obama pointed out there was a "long history" in the United States of blacks and Hispanics being singled out disproportionately by police. "That’s just a fact," he said.

Here Mr. Obama is channelling Ms. Sotomayor. Of course it is an untrue “fact.”

He said Gates’ arrest was a reminder that the race issue "still haunts us."

It certainly haunts Mr. Obama.

His entire world view has been twisted by his lifelong desire to be an aggrieved black. It is the real basis of his entire political career.

As he admitted in his first autobiography, Mr. Obama grew up dreaming about being a hero in the Civil Rights movement.  He bemoaned the fact that its glory days were over by the time he came of age.

From Dreams From My Father, page 75:

At the time, about to graduate from college, I was operating mainly on impulse, like a salmon swimming blindly upstream toward the site of his own conception. In classes and seminars, I would dress up these impulses in the slogans and theories that I’d discovered in books, thinking-falsely-that the slogans meant something, that they somehow made what I felt more amenable to proof. But at night, lying in bed, I would let the slogans drift away, to be replaced with a series of images, romantic images, of a past I had never known.

They were of the civil rights movement, mostly, the grainy black-and-white footage that appears every February during Black History Month, the same images that my mother had offered me as a child. A pair of college students, hair short, backs straight, placing their orders at a lunch counter teetering on the edge of riot. SNCC workers standing on a porch in some Mississippi backwater trying to convince a family of sharecroppers to register to vote. A county jail bursting with children, their hands clasped together, singing freedom songs.

Such images became a form of prayer for me, bolstering my spirits, channeling my emotions in a way that words never could. They told me (although even this much understanding may have come later, is also a construct, containing its own falsehoods) that I wasn’t alone in my particular struggles, and that communities had never been a given in this country, at least not for blacks. Communities had to be created, fought for, tended like gardens. They expanded or contracted with the dreams of men-and in the civil rights movement those dreams had been large. In the sit-ins, the marches, the jailhouse songs, I saw the African-American community becoming more than just the place where you’d been born or the house where you’d been raised. Through organizing, through shared sacrifice, membership had been earned. And because membership was earned-because this community I imagined was still in the making, built on the promise that the larger American community, black, white, and brown, could somehow redefine itself-I believed that it might, over time, admit the uniqueness of my own life.

That was my idea of organizing. It was a promise of redemption.

But never mind that all of that is now ancient history.

Mr. Obama still wants to carry that weight.

    And our “post racial” president draws a clear race-line in staying stupid things.

    http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/07/.....interview/

    (CNN) — President Obama said that police in Cambridge, Massachusetts, “acted stupidly” in arresting a prominent black Harvard professor last week after a confrontation at the man’s home.

    He said this last night in his typical prime-time “look at me” moment. He also admitted he didn’t have all the facts but that didn’t stop him from making a complete ass of himself by continuing to talk about it and taking a side. The BLACK side.

    • I forsee a split between the rank-and-file police officer who just got a backhanded slap in the face here, and the Unions that represent them, who supported Obama at every opportunity. Change, perhaps?

    • Many are suggesting that the officer should have exercised discretion and let the prof go. Discretion was thrown out the door a long time ago. It seems that civil rights advocates and others insisted that whites received more lenient treatment than African-Americans. Strict procedures – similar to those “zero tolerance” instituted in the schools – were instituted so that all were treated equally by law enforcement. All were cuffed: men, women, old men and adolescents.

      Madoff was made to do the same perp-walk as say Jeffrey Dahlmer. In each encounter the suspects are supposed to be treated the same: whether you are Harvard professor or a young punk with 9 miles of bad attitude. In this case it was a Harvard professor with 9 miles of bad attitude. The case was handled according to “standard procedure”. It ironic that equal treatment that was lobbied for by the civil rights establishment resulted in Professor Gate’s a trip to the police station.

      As a Rev Wright would said, “dem chickens have come home to ROOOOOOOOOOOoost!”

  2. Rusty Shackleford

    At this point, with his poll numbers doing a nosedive, I’m very much hoping he has truly shot himself in the foot. Thus by taking off the racial ambiguity mask, the REST of the country can now see what us conservatives have been looking at for well over a year now.

  3. Melly

    I just heard the audio interview of the Sargeant that is posted on Drudge http://audio.weei.com/m/254325.....police.htm

    You just don’t mouth off at a cop…..ever.

    I did hear in the audio interview the officer saying that he tried to secure Gates’ front door upon leaving and the good Professor said that the door didn’t close properly due to a previous break in. Nice neighborhood.

    The great Unifier is igniting racism.
    He won’t stop at anything.
    He is very good friends with Gates as is Oprah BTW.

    I really can’t stand Barry.

  4. Liberals Demise

    If there was any doubt before as to whether he listened to any of Reverend Wrights sermons ………..

  5. Colonel1961

    Reduction ad absurdum: why is there even such a curriculum as ‘African American Studies’?

    Enough is enough…

    • Gladius et Scutum

      The purpose of “African American Studies” is to prevent real integration of blacks into American society. Success of the civil rights movement saw blacks entering the middle class in numbers, and to the horror of the left, liking it. (Q.V.: Michelle Obama – ‘avoiding middle-classness”) By demanding segregation or integration as fits the political moment, “civil rights” leaders are assured a firm and reliable political base that will not question them in public. These bases are akin to Mao Ze Dong’s “Liberated Zones” in Hunan and serve much the same purpose.

    • Colonel1961

      My question was rhetorical, Sword and Shield, but your answer was spot-on…

  6. proreason

    There is no event too trivial for this moron to meddle in. He really believes that 5 seconds of his time is enough to make any decision, great or small. Despite the fact that he appears to have not made a single decision yet in his life that wan’t a go-along with what somebody else wanted to do. The Depression Stimulus is a classic example. Now we have Universal Health Scare.

    And next thing you know, he will declare that Global Warming is a racist.

    This is why I call him “The Moron”. But I’m considering changing to “The Egomoroniac”.

    • neocon mom

      This is why I call him “The Moron”. But I’m considering changing to “The Egomoroniac”.

      An apt description of this man’s narcissism.

      I love how he prefaced his judgment by saying he didn’t know all of the facts. Then he proceeds to manufacture them. Those stupid cops.

      This ought to be enough to get law enforcement unions to align against him. The dope didn’t need to pander to the race baiters, but he couldn’t help himself. Doesn’t bother to know the facts and calls them stupid. And he’s their boss as the head of the executive branch!

    • ptat

      You are so right,PR, it is astounding how often he will jump head first into an issue he knows nothing about! It is so ignorant, and usually has dire consequences he doesn’t have to address. He can just blithely move on to the next ignorant statement….

  7. UndercoverInLA

    The officer in this case, Sergeant Crowley, represents everything that is good about a citizen, and a public servant — honest, fair, an upstanding pillar of his community, an exemplary record (he even led departmental diversity training sessions) and a family man. He is Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber rolled into one.

    This incident could be a crystallizing example of at how far off course the country is going if it’s capitalized on properly.

    Obama’s feet need to be held to the fire about his racist views on why and how Sergeant Crowley “behaved stupidly.”

    Someone needs to specifically ask Obama to detail why and how it was stupid to request identification from the person inside the house where a possible break-in was reported. Ask Obama for specific reasons why and how it was stupid for Sergeant Crowley to ask Gates to stop shouting and calm down. Why and how it was stupid for Seargant Crowley to warn Gates repeatedly that he was going to be arrested if he didn’t comport himself in an orderly fashion? Ask Obama to explain why and how it was stupid to for Seargent take Gates into custody after he refused repeatedly to comply with the Sergeant’s requests. Ask Obama to explain his knee-jerk racist response that Sergeant Crowley behaved stupidly, despite his admission that he didn’t even know all the basic facts of the incident.

    • Rusty Shackleford

      You might do better to get Rumpelstiltskin to say his own name.

      The MSM will never call him on it. No one in any interview will make him squirm thus.

    • UndercoverInLA

      I agree, no MSM monkey will do it, but it could be an effective meme if pushed by the conservative leadership (is that an oxymoron?), the blogosphere, and the tea partiers — could you imagine how much fun it would be to attend a demonstration decrying the racism targeted at Sergeant Crowley?

    • proreason

      While they’re at it, they should ask Mr. Gates why he was trying to force his way into the front door from the oustide after getting into the house through the back door. Didn’t opening the door with the handle from the inside occur to him?

      Affirmative action on display.

    • ptat

      Gates obviously isn’t very smart!

  8. bronzeprofessor

    Michelle Malkin linked to this Boston Herald article about Sgt. Crowley:

    http://www.bostonherald.com/ne.....position=0

    I think the article is classy and gives important sides to Crowley’s life.

    • Rusty Shackleford

      So, are you saying that the MSM and democrats may have “supreme difficulty” in smearing and destroying officer Crowley? What about that time in second grade when he gave his teacher a dirty look? THAT will surely discredit him, no?

  9. Media_man

    That this was the final question in this presser just underscored what a mockery of a sham of mockery these are. No questions on the CBO stating expanding gov’t h/c will “increase” costs, destroying his initial pontifications to the contrary, no questions on curbing junk medmal lawsuits driving h/c costs thru the roof, both of which one would think should be at the top of any reasonable question list on curbing exploding h/c costs.

    Just softball questions that went totally unanswered by the filibusterer in chief, as he ranted on like a patient off his/her meds. And then to finish with this idiotic question about Skip Gates just was the icing on the cake. On the plus side, it showed him to be the race baiting hustler he really is. He may have staged it for his benefit, but he only hurt himself in the process.

  10. Douglas

    For the record. If I ever do the same thing as this “professor” did I hope the local police have the same response and come check it out. Of course instead of refusing to cooperate and escalating the situation I’ll apologize for wasting their time, show them my ID, explain what happened and invite them in for coffee.

    By the way, how does this event rise to the level that the CIC would spend a second on it?

    • Colonel1961

      Great point, Douglas – when are routine, uneventful, meaningless, law enforcement matters subject to POTUS commentary. Sick…

  11. catie

    I know he knew this question was coming and he timed it so he would have just enough time to explain to the world how stupid he is. He needs to apologize to Sgt. Crowley.

  12. GetBackJack

    I am unrepentant Son of The South. Secessionist anti-Union to the core because I believe i the Constitution.

    I am waiting for the day that a public-figure black man says “Thank you, Americans for the blood and treasure you shed in my behalf. The awful price paid in the war over state’s rights and the terrible price paid for my freedom.”

    I’m waiting.

    600,000 graves call out to me as I wait, 600,000 American brothers cold in the ground call out to me.

    I’m waiting.

      I’m with you but I’m afraid you’re going to turn a nice shade of blue before it’s all said and done.

  13. MinnesotaRush

    o-blah-blah: “I don’t know — not having been there and not seeing all the facts —” .. but I’ll still shoot my mouth off about the incident and deliver my very racial and biased determination on the stupidity of you minions and especially the police.

    So who’s stupid, o-blah-blah?

    Inept, arrogant, and condescending racist twit!

    • neocon mom

      He might have tempered his remarks by mentioning that police officers put their lives on the line to serve and protect each day.
      Instead it was ten minutes of gossip from our CIC that will help to blow this non-issue even further out of proportion in order to protect Gates’ pride.

    • Rusty Shackleford

      nm,

      What you’re witnessing is what happens when pseudo-intellectuals lacking in maturity get frustrated. They blurt things out without thinking and THIS IS WHY HE NEEDS A TELEPROMPTER. His handlers are deathly afraid of moments like this. He will expose himself every single time. And, as Rush has been pointing out today, he does it anyway. By his word choices, you have to find the real meaning, but it’s there. His examples of “evil doctors”, “evil big-business” etc reveal him to be the angry so-and-so he tries to hide.

      Basic common sense teaches us, “Actions speak louder than words” and also body language and word choice all word together to foist him on his own petard.

      Slowly, the American public, with help, is coming to rub the sleepy seeds out of their eyes and they will, hopefully, come to see plainly the crap that spews forth from this pedestrian, affirmative-action proceed.

      In so many ways, the democrats own idealism will work to undermine their plans.

      However, watch out for sudden retaliation on the part of the DNC where they work to distract and obfuscate the damage he has done, image-wise, in the past 24 hours. The DNC may launch a complete frontal attack on his critics. It’s what they do.

  14. VMAN

    And Obama is addressing this why? Even if it was asked at a press conference he should have blown it off BUT NOOOO he had to be a racist about it. Just imagine for one second if this had happened when George was Prez and he said the good prof had acted stupidly. I don’t think you have to try hard. I don’t mind standing up shoulder to shoulder on equal ground with any man be he black, brown, yellow, red, white or any variation of color but when they start this race baiting crap they’re looking for a fight.

    • VMAN, I once had my African American brother-in-law ask me if racism was still around. I told him yes, but for the most part I think it is still around because of people who go around yelling “racism” at every instance they have a chance to (I’m looking at your Rev. Sharpton). Is essence, racism is only around because people accuse others of racism, even though the situation doesn’t warrant it. This story is a perfect example of that.

    • curvyred

      Call me cynical,: but does anyone else thing this is related to the fine Professor’s upcoming documentary about the criminal justice system and what role race has played in prosecutions and sentencing, naw this “break-in” and arrest have nothing at all to do with staged events to promote agenda. – sorry my tinfoil hat needs adjusting.

    • proreason

      curvy, i said yesterday and repeated today that when somebody breaks into their front door after getting in through the back, something strange is going on.

      I speculated the good professor wanted to raise “his profile”, but now that you have pointed out the documentary, the mysterious chain of events is easily explainable.

  15. TheChicagoWay

    Remember, if you are a police officer, don’t be stupid. Just let anyone who is lipping off or is not listening to just keep doing what they are doing… That’s right, just let them keep screeching and whining and drawing a crowd and creating a “noisy disturbance”. Yeah, SMART officers would prefer the matter to escalate so they can make even MORE arrests…Hey! Call out the SWAT teams!. We’re going to clean up this town! Yeah, that’s what SMART officers do……

    Police union condemns Obama’s comments
    By Sam Youngman
    Posted: 07/23/09 01:58 PM [ET]

    President Obama’s Wednesday night criticism of Cambridge, Mass., police has drawn a rebuke from the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP).

    The criticism comes after Obama said Cambridge police officers acted “stupidly” when they arrested Henry Louis Gates, a friend of the president’s, after he broke into his own home. Gates was arrested on disorderly conduct charges, which were then dropped. The president said it highlights ongoing problems with race relations in the U.S.

    From the Associated Press:

    Cop who arrested black scholar is profiling expert

    By DENISE LAVOIE (AP)

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — The white police sergeant criticized by President Barack Obama for arresting black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. in his Massachusetts home is a police academy expert on understanding racial profiling.

    Cambridge Sgt. James Crowley has taught a class about racial profiling for five years at the Lowell Police Academy after being hand-picked for the job by former police Commissioner Ronny Watson, who is black, said Academy Director Thomas Fleming.

    “I have nothing but the highest respect for him as a police officer. He is very professional and he is a good role model for the young recruits in the police academy,” Fleming told The Associated Press on Thursday.

    The course, called “Racial Profiling,” teaches about different cultures that officers could encounter in their community “and how you don’t want to single people out because of their ethnic background or the culture they come from,” Fleming said. The academy trains cadets for cities across the region…

    Obama’s true colors are shining through.

    • Rusty Shackleford

      Indeed. But like the bully who gets caught in a simple war of words, and accidentally admits to something he’d rather not, Blammo has taken off the mask of “unifier” and shown he really is “the dark knight” so to speak.

      The next few days will prove to be very interesting as right this very minute, I am sure he and his toadies are laboring over how to spin this so it appears to be less of the crap-bomb it very much is.

      Step one, like any true racist does, is to downplay it.

      “Oh come on…who hasn’t said something they wish they hadn’t? We’re all friends here, right?”

      If that fails, it’s on to step two: Admitting fault but qualifying it with that’s not what he really meant.

      “OK…I said that, but what I REALLY meant was that the whole incident was stupid…not that the COPS were stupid”

      Then step three: reverse the blame

      “Look, white people do this kind of thing all the time….why isn’t it ok for black people to do it?”

      And on and on. From the “it’s not you, it’s me” to the “I really mis-spoke” defense.

      But before I get too lost in the psychobabble/mechanics of a losing argument, I have to point out that at EVERY OPPORTUNITY when whites have this problem, even in the midst of a genuine faux-pas, blacks afford no quarter. I refer directly to Howard Cosell’s, “Look at that monkey run!” , Sept 5, 1983 for which he was fired two months later. And thus, none shoud be granted to Obama.

      And so this becomes a test of real equality; A real opportunity for him to put his money where his mouth is. If he comes out and says, “I said it, and I meant it to mean that the officers were being stupid racists. However, it was a knee-jerk reaction and I was foolish to say it and have thought better of my words since then. I apologize and beg forgiveness”. Well, one might see their way clear to cautiously let it pass. Give him the benefit of the doubt in a mea culpa sort of way.

      Which, we know he will never say. His inability to admit fault of any kind will see to that.

      Therefore, we’re left with the psychobabble and weak mechanics as mentioned before. And thus, no matter how much spin is placed on it….it is as plain as his choice for the next supreme court justice’s words were just days ago.

      And, going further, as had been pointed out, everyone is racist…or at least prejudiced somehow. It’s just a matter of degree. The difference is about a person’s character and willingness to overcome that racism in order to get along and take the chance that maybe that person isn’t as they initially see them.

      Reaching across the aisle and being a unifier means that they must do so by example. Blammo has done none of this. In fact, so-called card-carrying racists of the past have done more and better on an individual basis than this narrow-minded son-of-a-bitch.

      Unfortunately, he fails to realize, or maybe he does, that he is in a position to ignite a very serious fire. In fact, that may be his plan all along as when the voices of criticism become too loud, like a spoiled manipulative brat, such as he is, can pit two dogs against one another and fade into the fog whilst they go at it.

      So he may be starting a diversion. Get the country all riled up about race and have them fight it out while he hides his incompetence in plain sight. I used to observe that ploy on many the sitcom and most obviously on such shows as Lost In Space and Gilligan’s Island. There’s no doubt that he would prefer the NAACP go after everyone and put the rest of whitey on the defensive and who knows, Gates may be a willing dupe….allowing himself to be scrutinized in order to take heat off of Blammo..while simultaneously garnering publicity for his upcoming documentary.

      Such things happen all the time in politics…though seldom on this subject…that of racism.

      In the long run, I would hope that everyone at the table is wise to the ruse and simply gives it little attention and thus, continues the scrutiny of Obama’s failed policies and politics. That’s usually where America shines…at least, after a fashion.

      The “master of distraction” may find he’s bitten off more than he can chew and will be forced to swallow a huge amount of (jim) crow.

    • Rusty, have you been reading the news, because the second step you mention is almost the exact same thing that Obama did say. It’s like your pshycic.

    • Rusty Shackleford

      C-bear. Some. I noted the big O’s press secretary’s weak defense…and fell back on some of my racial relations/ethics training from the military. I was still in the midst of editing my post when I saw yours and had to think about it. And yes, I have been watching the news….but not the MSM. Never pay any attention to the MSM.

      I think he’s going to try to hide in plain sight while fueling a racial feud. He hates the criticism he’s received of late and would dearly welcome the spotlight being removed from his gray/not-gray scalp. Unless, of course, it’s unwavering fawning praise.

      *Addendum:

      You give me too much credit. I am not psychic. So far as I know my dog is the only one who can read minds in my house. But thanks.

    • proreason

      What Rusty is talking about is “affirmative lieing”. To do it, you maintain the lie, but give ground serially, with the expectation that you will wear the questioner down.

      – I didn’t rob the house. I was out of town.
      – I was in town, but I didn’t rob the house. I was at home in a different neighborhood.
      – ok, if was walking in that neighborhood, but I have several witnesses who can vouch for me every second.

      etc.

      Obama does this all the time. Rev Wright and Bill Ayers are notable examples.

      He has many other techniques to lie as well.

      Even considering Clinton, nobody has ever lied like this guy.

      Every word he says is a lie of some sort.

      His entire life is a lie.

    • Melly

      Yes – you are right. His true colors are showing.

      He is playing by “The Rules for Radicals:”

      Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it (Alinsky 1972: 130). This is perhaps Saul Alinsky’s most controversial rule and is the counter to the common idea that we should not make things personal. When pursuing the changes in the inheritance law for paintings he targets one individual. He will often find out who the CEO is in a company and hound that person. In the organophosphates debate it is one scientist that he targets and the validity of his findings.

  19. bobbys

    If your Heath care plan was in doubt What would you talk about in the Press conference????.

    A …Rush ????.

    B …Lipstick on a pig????.

    C…North Korea saying Hillary looks like a old pensioner???.

    D…A plumber????.

    C ..Racism???

  20. Is this guy Gates related to Cynthia McKinney? They seem to have the same contempt for white people in uniform.

  21. 12 Gauge Rage

    I would love to see a reformed black liberal, now conservative, come out with a book titled: ‘Squandered Dreams of Our Fathers.’ And have it subtitled ‘How the Black Community forsook the moral high ground in favor of racial and political payback.’ As a side note. Gates would never had done this to the German police if he were in Germany. Because they would have beat the living hell outta’ him for being unruly and uncooperative. In America it’s known as police brutality. In Germany it’s called police tactics.

  22. I wonder now if this isn’t even a little bigger than most would expect out of such a “minor” incident..

    It was most definitely a major screw up on O-Who’s part. He has revealed a (dare I say) darker side that is very unlikeable.

    I wrote on this and decided to not publish, but as it was discussed more, I decided to post.. http://michigantaxes.com/wordp.....re-stupid/ I hope the title isn’t too offensive.. It DOES MATTER that our president lowers himself to this level. In a way its a shame, as I thought we were over this type of race baiting.

    • proreason

      “It was most definitely a major screw up ”

      Maybe yes, maybe no.

      The race card was bound to be played about Health Scare, and this is the way he has played it for now.

      At the very least, it’s a distraction from the Health Scare “conversation”.

      It bothers us, of course, but do you honestly think his brain-dead minions are disturbed by the Gates episode? Hardly. They LOVE it. To them, it’s just further proof of white racism.

    • Perhaps playing that card too soon will indeed derail his “health scare” box cars of the unwitting..

      Anything… is proof to the brain-dead minions.. It simply must make the news, and it is automatically replete with marching tunes.
