Feel free to crawl back into your cave anytime. The "shot all the buffalo and killed the Indians" thing is really getting old. Is that what they say in England when William the Bastard crossed the channel in 1066 and later became known as William the Anglo-Saxon killer? Revisionist historians like howard zinn are abominations.

America wanted NOTHING to do with either WW's 1 or 2. After Japan attacked, we didn't declare war on Germany, Hitler declared on us. We bankrolled the whole war for the allies. England and Russia would have been defeated if it were not for us. England agreed to pay us back money they borrowed. Russia reneged. I could see how having to pay one's debt could appear to a liberal as being "charged." The only business you do requires you to swipe a welfare card.

Then we kept the Soviets out of Europe for half a century. We also keep sea lanes safe for commerce.

You're Welcome.

Evidently, liberal Judge Shira Shindlin uses the Obama talking points about the racist attacks on Blacks to undermine the security of ten million Americans and tourists in New York City on a daily basis. Judge Shira proved that she does not need the US Constitution when she make her own ruling from the court while trashing the US Constitution that protects the American people from criminals even if they are Black or Hispanic. Judge Shira approved to help the gangsters in NYC that keep shooting in the streets and put in danger each and every new Yorker and especially innocent Blacks and Hispanics.

our liberals have been trying for years to prevent blacks and dodgy moslems from being searched. we had a riot two years ago because the police shot an armed black gangster - now his parents (who were not on speaking terms with him) want "reparashuns" .

Does the IRS audit whites more than blacks because they are white, or because they own more businesses?

Blacks and Hispanics get stopped and frisked more because they are out on the street more. Even eliot spritzer knew to do his money laundering and prostitution solicitation indoors. I have friends in the NYPD. They see it all because some have no shame.

This is why liberals are so afraid of NSA snooping.

Regardless of motivations and rationalizations she made the right call constitutionally, that's all that matters.

She is an example of how judges are basically politicians. Never forget that judges in positions like this are nominated and appointed by politicians. She had to network/campaign for this judgeship as do ALL judges at the FEDERAL level.

But again, regardless of the politics she made the right call. The decision is right, that's what judges are paid to do, rule on THE LAW/CONSTITUTION and not the emotions or politics of a case.

Never had a problem with a stop and pocket search myself,and the more people who dont moan about it and just get it done.The police can move on and do their job.If they catch one for every hundred they search better days ahead.If you got nothing to hide whats the problem?
Does NY have high gang crime?

I agree, and on the Continent it is common to be stopped and asked for your papers. and why not? if you are OK, thankyou sir and move on. Since when was it a human right to be doing illegal things anyway? and the Spanish police will give you a hard time if you act up .

Its common here aswell,stop and search.Hundreds of Irish lads and ladies get stopped every day in Ireland,ofc they moan about it after.But they dont make an issue out of it.However when its a black or Arab it becomes racist and discrimination apparently. Like they are doing in NY.I am sure hundreds of white Americans get stopped for search and they havent moaned about it(if they did they would be told to shut up and move along by the judge lol Ridiculous.How else do the police do their jobs.Just shut up open the pockets be polite and move along.
I am sure there is small cases of discrimination based on colour,but they are basically taking the rights of the police away and their abilities to target criminals.
Imagine police having to build a case on small drug dealers and thieves before they could do a stop and search.God i dread to think.

over here it gets worse when moslems are involved - the police in certain "sensitive areas" (hellhole moslem slums) have to "discuss" forthcoming raids with the local "Commuuuuuuuunity" (giving time for all evidence to be hidden). and when the police search a black area, all hell breaks out.
