and as an avid Spiderman fan since the 60s, Spiderman is the consummate "be careful what you wish for" story. It was meant to show the boys who read comic books that even having super powers can be in itself, a problem.

Unless my memory fails me, the original James T. West was white (and short) so if Hollywood is so racist (absurd at best) then why did they choose Will Smith to portray a character made famous by Robert Conrad in the Wild, Wild, West?
I agree except it goes way beyond President Obama and the present Congress. This has been building, inch by inch, since the 1930s. Progresivism has been pushing to gain each inch of power gained by the Federal government. The only real answer is to give the balance back to the States. Every school child is taught the horizontal balance of power in the US (Executive, congress, and judicial) but they leave out the vertical (and much more important to the founding fathers) is the balance between the feds and the States. See Levin's book the freedom amendments for details of how to get this balance back.
The only question I have about what the cop did was to identify himself as a police officer when working as security for the school district. That aside, the man will be able to walk because he was arrested for the wrong thing. At least while on tape, he never made any aggressive moves towards the officer. He DID refuse to obey a lawful order by a police officer which is illegal, but not assault. It should have been interference with an officer, but of course, this goes back to the question of was this interference with an office in the line of duty, he was off duty and acting as security. Either way I am sure the charges will be dropped as he never assaulted or battered the officer. The officer's action (identifying himself as PD to give the color of authority) when he was working as a private citizen.
