    US unveils federal law enforcement profiling curbs


    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration issued guidelines Monday that restrict the ability of federal law enforcement agencies to profile on the basis of religion, national origin and other characteristics, protocols the Justice Department hopes could be a model for local departments as the nation tackles questions about the role race plays in policing.

    Holder, who has made the release of the guidelines a priority before leaving the Justice Department next year, called the guidelines a "major and important step forward to ensure effective policing" by federal law enforcement.

    ;) Nice catch, Clyde; however, this new development is in conflict with the signing of HR347 by President Obama in March of 2012:

    When he signed the anti-protest bill

    "...as a common sense reaction to Obama's predictable signing of the latest assault on the Bill of Rights -- namely -- H.R. 347 (and it's companion senate bill S. 1794); aka the "Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011. Sounding more like an appropriations bill authorizing monies for federal grounds landscaping -- this bill, better known to those in the DC beltway as the 'Trespass Bill' -- potentially makes peaceable protest anywhere in the U.S. a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison..."

    says Jeanine Molloff a veteran urban educator in her blog on Huffington Post's page.

    So let me get this straight. The former defense secretary left some unfinished business on his desktop that makes "ethnic" profiling unconstitutional from a federal level on down; while the country (eg. as well as the world) are currently reacting to "profiling" situations that have created public turmoil and unrest. Sounds backwards to me. This means something is wrong, Clyde. Not with you, of course. It is the system that is doing things backwards...understand what eye am sayin'?

    SMH, what an uncivilized. imperfect society that we live inside and trust.

    Thanks, good looking out, I'm reviewing H.R. 347 at this moment, let me get back to you on this. I was taking a look at this when you posted:

    A big loophole in Holder’s new racial profiling guidelines—the border

    In a conference call with law enforcement officials Monday afternoon, the attorney general “made it clear that he was quite disappointed” with that concession, one person on the call told Yahoo News on the condition of anonymity. When asked why the new policy wouldn’t apply to DHS, Holder said that the agency, which is led by Jeh Johnson, had pushed back on the racial profiling policy, telling him it needed to be able to use race as a factor in some of its law enforcement activities to keep the nation safe. The source said Holder deployed some lighthearted sarcasm to convey his disappointment, asking, “What do I know? I’m just the attorney general of the United States." A Justice Department official said that the attorney general was not being sarcastic and that he was sincerely explaining to the law enforcement officials that he can’t tell other agencies that aren’t under his purview what to do.

    Here's another perspective to mull over....

    "...Civil Rights advocates said they welcomed the broader protections but were disappointed that the guidance will exempt security screening in airports and border checkpoints and won't be binding on local and state police agencies..."

    After reviewing H. R. 347, Jeanine Molloff's comments and the border loophole in Holder's new guidance plans on profiling; recent protesters should be safe from arrests, while local and state police departments are also safe from implementing the new federal guidelines, unfortunately.

    It will be very interesting to see if Loretta Lynch authorizes any changes to this particular accomplishment of Holder's tenure/legacy.

    :facepalm: Its hard to believe this brother speaks against special prosecutors, in plain view, of the current posture of the so-called Grand Jury to render No True-Bills when autopsy reports reveal death by homicide ... smh



    Brooklyn D.A. Rages Against Special Prosecutor Proposal for Eric Garner-Like Cases


    Mr. Thompson, a Democrat and Brooklyn’s first black district attorney, has led the charge against a request State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman made to Gov. Andrew Cuomo this week to temporarily appoint himself as a special prosecutor in future cases that involve a police officer’s actions leading to the death of an unarmed civilian. Mr. Schneiderman, flanked by a coterie of city and state elected officials, said he made the request because there is a public perception that local district attorneys, who often work closely with the police, aren’t able to fairly prosecute cases of police brutality.
