To the tune of Glory Hallelujah let's take a moment to thank and revel in the idea that we now have a President that cares about the 4th amendment.

In a stunning move, the Obama Administration has thrust itself into the middle of the explosive federal stop-and-frisk trial and is taking sides against the NYPD, raising the odds of a outside monitor being appointed to oversee the controversial crime-fighting program.

"This is very bad news," said one City Hall source.

The source said that Attorney General Eric Holder's office notified the city that it intends to file briefs in support of claims by the Center for Constitutional Rights that cops are stopping suspects on the basis of race.

Ten weeks of testimony in the case concluded last month.

It's very good news for the equal application of the United States Constitution regardless of race creed or ethnicity though.  

Sorry for the short diary MOOOOOSE feel free to dance around in the freedom grass below.

This is great news! (2.00 / 6)
I wonder, though, if there is ay civil action that can happen to victims of stop and frisk.

don't know if you saw this (2.00 / 6)
from unabashed supporters of AG Holder.

Interesting how almost no one in one very vocal group who call themselves "progressives"(online) pays any attention to the valuable work being done under his watch.

All they do is call for his head.

Not saying that they should STFU- but ODS has also turned into Holder Derangement Syndrome among certain segments.

Wonder why?

May I take "Black Attorneys General for 100, Alex?". (2.00 / 5)
But then I would be accused of playing the race card.

It seems like smart, strong black men (and women) scare more than a few people.

I think that' too simplistic. (2.00 / 6)
Some people seem to think they should agree with every decision made by people on their side and see any area of disagreement in a vacuum: OMG! he did x so he sucks while (momentarily) forgetting the other good stuff done.

True, that. We will never agree 100% with anyone. Heck, I disagree with myself often enough! (2.00 / 5)
But remembering the good with the bad and deciding that the times they are right outweighs the times that they are wrong requires rational nuanced thinking.

How about "Purity Positions for 100, Alex"?

it is the dawning realization (2.00 / 6)
that their children will be competing on a more level playing fleld and that scares every privileged fiber of their being. I see it out here on a much more primitive level but the actual motivations are the same.

The Anger on Black Twitter over this (2.00 / 3)
I've warned so much about this, but the base of the party that I see on Black Twitter is molten hot mad, I'm molten hot mad.  people are done asking for respect and with the dudebros recent appropriation of MLK for Edward (rat traitor bastard Paul supporting racist) oh yeah you give money to ron paul you're a racist people are designing shivs for anything an emotional progressive wants to do.  it's gone beyond just being uncomfortable in the coalition to feeling pain actual pain because of it.  We got trouble trouble trouble

"I honor the place in you where Spirit lives
I honor the place in you which is
of Love, of Truth, of Light, of Peace,
when you are in that place in you,
and I am in that place in me,
then we are One."  Namaste Friends!

I don't mind (2.00 / 3)
being uncomfortable in a coalition, I've been a Democrat for a long time. I am not willing to be condescended to by folks crashing my coalition.

to be clear (2.00 / 3)
I am unhappy with the leftiest left assuming they can crash the established Party when it suits them and do us harm when it suits them. I'm old enough to have lived through the idle rich waltzing in and destroying what was good and then bailing when it didn't serve them as they had expected it to. It was brutal and I have no intention of standing by for a repeat.

I remember that too (2.00 / 3)
One of the things that disturbed me was how people I remember first hand supporting the GOP got promoted to opinion makers on our side in like 10 years.

"I honor the place in you where Spirit lives
I honor the place in you which is

when you are in that place in you,

Yay! (2.00 / 4)
Something good to be cheery about :-)  Thanks for sharing!
