Members of the Cambridge Police Dept. in Massachusetts tell CNN's Don Lemon in an exclusive interview that fellow officer Sgt. James Crowley did nothing wrong when he arrested Harvard professor Henry Gates for disorderly conduct. The charges were quickly dropped.
A panel of experts joins CNN's Don Lemon on Saturday night to discuss the arrest of Henry "Skip" Gates, esteemed professor of African-American studies at Harvard University. He was inside his own home in Cambridge when a white police officer came to his door in response to a 911 call of a possible break-in at the residence.

The panel explains how this incident speaks to a much deeper issue that needs to be addressed at all levels of society.
