The 9-11 call has come out in the Gates incident and it vindicates the caller.
DISPATCH: What’s the exact location of your emergency?
911 CALLER: I’m calling from Ware Street in Cambridge. The house number is 17.
DISPATCH: What’s the address again?
911 CALLER: Sorry, it’s 7 Ware that’s W-A-R-E Street.
DISPATCH: The residency is 7 Ware Street, right?
911 CALLER: No, it’s 17. I’m sorry. There’s a woman who’s talking next to me but it’s 17. 1-7 Ware Street.
DISPATCH: What’s the phone number you’re calling me from?
911 CALLER: I’m calling you from my cell phone number.
DISPATCH: Tell me exactly what happened.
911 CALLER: I don’t know what’s happening I just had an older woman standing here and she had noticed two gentlemen trying to get in a house at that number 17 Ware Street. And they kind of had to barge in and they broke the screen door and they finally got in. And I went over to have a look and I got closer to the house a little bit after the gentlemen were already in the house. I noticed two suitcases. I don’t know if these are the two individuals that actually work there, I mean, who live there.
DISPATCH: You think they might have been breaking in?
911 CALLER: I don’t know because… I have no idea.
DISPATCH: You think that possibility might have been that? What do you mean barged in? Did they kick the door in?
911 CALLER: No, they were pushing the door in like… um… like the screen part of the front door…
911 CALLER: I didn’t see the key or anything I was a little bit away from the door but I did notice that they…
DISPATCH: What do the suitcases have to do with anything?
911 CALLER: I don’t know, I’m just saying that’s what I saw.
DISPATCH: Is it an apartment they broke into?
911 CALLER: No, just the first floor. I don’t even think it’s an apartment. It’s 17 Ware Street. It’s a house. It’s a yellow house. Number 17. I don’t know if they live there and just had a hard time with their key. I noticed that they kind of used their shoulder to try to barge in and they got in. I don’t know if they had a key or not because I couldn’t see from my angle. But, you know, when I looked a little closely that’s what I…
DISPATCH: Are they Hispanic? Are they still in the house?
911 CALLER: They’re still in the house I believe, yeah.
DISPATCH: Are they white, black or Hispanic?
911 CALLER: Um, well, they were two larger men. One looked kind of Hispanic but I’m not really sure. And they other one entered and I didn’t see what he looked like at all. I just saw it from a distance and this older woman was worried thinking someone’s breaking in someone’s house and barging in and I… she interrupted me and that’s when I had noticed, otherwise I probably wouldn’t have noticed it at all, to be honest with you. So I was just calling because she was a concerned neighbor, I guess.
DISPATCH: Okay. Are you standing outside?
911 CALLER: I’m standing outside, yeah.
DISPATCH: Police are on their way. You can meet them when you get there. What’s your name?
911 CALLER: Yeah, my name is (says name).
DISPATCH: Alright they’re on their way.
911 CALLER: Alright, I guess I’ll wait. Thanks.
Glad to hear she is vindicated but she still has had to retain a lawyer. That in itself will give a good example to people….don’t get involved. People breaking into a house? Let em’ do it…ain’t worth the grief.
Then the dispatch traffic, some of it anyways, has been released:
You can hear Crowley calmly say the man in the house is being uncooperative and that he states he lives at the location.
