In a Police State, Everyone Loses: The Supreme Court’s Ruling in Arizona v. United States Endangers Us All by John W. Whitehead

Posted: June 27, 2012 in Uncategorized

Thanks to a muddled decision handed down by the Supreme Court on June 25, Arizona police officers now have broad authority to stop, search and question individuals – citizen and non-citizen alike. While the law prohibits officers from considering race, color, or national origin, it amounts to little more than a perfunctory nod to discrimination laws on the books, while paving the way for outright racial profiling.

I used to hate this in other countries. Never thought it would be law in the US to show me your papers. Perpetual traveler, anyone. http://iperpetualtraveler.com
