'Shira Scheindlin, again
May 16, 2012

Thanks to Manhattan Federal Court Judge Shira Scheindlin, hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers — those stopped on the street and searched, but never charged — may be in line for a big payday.

The city will be the poorer for that, should it come to pass. Whether it will be safer is another matter entirely.

Scheindlin yesterday granted class-action status to a 2008 lawsuit accusing the NYPD’s highly effective stop-and-frisk anti-crime policy of deliberate racial bias.

In so doing, she accused the NYPD of displaying “a deeply troubling apathy toward New Yorkers’ most fundamental constitutional rights.”

Coming from Scheindlin, this is no surprise: This is the same judge, after all, who ordered a new trial for Brink’s bank robber-cum-terrorist Judith Clark 25 years after the heist, despite agreeing that Clark had no legal right to any such thing.

And she has a history with stop-and-frisk.

She presided over a 1999 lawsuit over the policy stemming from the shooting of Amadou Diallo that led to a dubious settlement that implicitly acknowledged that the NYPD had engaged in racial profiling.

Pillorying cops as racist is nothing new for the federal bench, either.

Scheindlin’s colleague, Harold Baer, infamously ordered a confessed drug courier released by saying NYPD officers are “corrupt, abusive and violent” and that residents of minority neighborhoods are right to fear them.

To be honest, there may be something to the argument that the department has imposed a quota system, which it calls “performance goals.”

But the plaintiffs and their allies don’t want to mend stop-and-frisk — they want to end it entirely.

And that must not be allowed to happen.

As Mayor Bloomberg pointedly said yesterday:“Nobody should ask Commissioner Ray Kelly to apologize — he’s not going to and neither am I — for saving 5,600 lives.”

Stop-and-frisk, he noted, has “taken more than 6,000 guns off the street in the last eight years”— and put the city on track to have its lowest-ever number of murders.

“We’re not going to do anything that undermines that trend and threatens public safety,” he vowed.

Unless a federal judge decides otherwise.'
And so it goes

What makes you think Romney is a practicioner of a radical religion?
You have to do something different here and actually present some facts to answer this question.
If Romney had any problems with the evangelicals vote, Obama made sure to open the way for them to vote for Romney.

The rest of America despises religious bigotry.

56% of Americans still think that Obama will win the election, with just 36% predicting a Romney victory. Predictably, these dispositions shift across party lines, with 81% of Democrats and 68% of Republicans anticipating victory for their respective candidate. Notably, 58% of independents foresee a second term for Obama, and the share of all respondents who predicted an Obama win was greater than in a June 2008 poll that found 52% predicting Obama’s first presidential victory.

Based on Gallup’s findings, Americans may not be enthusiastic about the Obama administration, nor are they pleased with the results of his economic policies, but in what might be a reticent acceptance of the advantages of incumbency, a majority still look toward November and see another four years of Obama on the horizon, no matter how poor his chances appear compared with past reelection bids.

The poll on the likelihood of Obama’s reelection was conducted May 10-13 among a random sample of 1,012 adults with a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points. The survey for satisfaction and the country’s most important problem was conducted May 3-6 with a random sample of 1,024 adults and polling for Obama’s approval rating took place between May 7-13

Calendar year 2008 just happens to be the first year of the Democrats' budget.
In case you're completely ignorant of how our government works, Congress controls all the purse strings for government. In January, 2007, the Democrats took control of both houses of Congress. The first year of the Democrats controlling the budget was calendar year 2008, you goddam ignorant imbicile.
Now, some more facts for you:
The Republicans handed the Democrats a deficit of 160 billion dollars during a war. The war was won, and spending on that war was dramatically reduced.
What was the next deficit after the Republicans handed the government purse strings over to the Democrats?
And, what was the deficit the year after that? And the next year?
And, who the f**k came up with the idea of getting rid of the budget while the biggest threat to our existence is the out-of-control growing debt?
So now you claim that the Democrats increased the budget by a trillion dollars. The fact is it was the effects of the recession.

You talk budget deficits. The wars were done off budget. We added 500 billion to the debt in calendar year 2006. You can run & blow smoke out your ass all day long but we still added 500 billion to the national debt that year. As we did in Calendar year 2007.

Where is that list of legislation passed by Democrats in the first 9 months of 2007 that created this recession. I'm still waiting & you still aren't answering,. Why is that?

Obama submitted budgets. Congress just can't seem to get it done.

<quoted text>In reality, Kennedy voted against the 1957 Civil rights Act while he was a senator.
-
After he became president, the 1963 March on Washington by Dr. King that was organized by A. Phillip Randolph who was a black Republican. Dr. King criticized Kennedy for ignoring civil rights issues. This criticism was one of the reasons that Kennedy, through his brother Attorney General Robert Kennedy, had Dr. King wiretapped and investigated by the FBI on suspicion of being a Communist in order to undermine Dr. King.
-
When the King family sought help with getting Dr. King out of a Birmingham jail, Richard Nixon was not successful getting MLK out of jail because NO Republican could have any control over the actions of the racists DemokkkRats in the South.
-
Kennedy’s civil rights advisory, Harris Wofford who was a personal friend of Dr. King, made a telephone call on behalf of President Kennedy without Kennedy’s knowledge that resulted in Dr. King’s release. Kennedy was angry about the call because he feared that he would lose the Southern vote. History shows, though, that the call By Wofford eventually worked in Kennedy’s favor and is the primary reason so many blacks wrongly revere Kennedy today.

Why do you think it's a black ghetto he was talking about?
By the way, all those other ethnic groups worked their way out of those ghetto circumstances. How is it that we have self-propagating ghettos today?
