U.S. sues Arpaio’s office over treatment of Latinos After collecting evidence over the past five years, the United States of Justice is finally going ahead with a lawsuit against Sheriff Joe Arpaio. “The federal government filed a lawsuit against the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Thursday morning alleging that sheriff’s deputies discriminate against Latino residents during patrol operations and in the county’s jails and that the Sheriff’s Office retaliates against critics of Sheriff Joe Arpaio. It marks just the second time since a police-reform act was passed in the early 1990s that the Justice Department has been forced to file a contested lawsuit against a law-enforcement agency, said Assistant U.S. Attorney General Thomas Perez.”
Another politically charged issue: ImmigrationThe Washington Post’s pundits argue how the issue of immigration will effect the 2012 general election match up. “On Ed’s post this morning that Obama’s conversion on gay marriage was cynical and political, I would reply that’s what some people said about Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation. Political considerations are always part of the mix even in the most idealistic decisions, but, to me, it’s a lot more important where Obama ended up on gay marriage than how he got there. Too many Republicans are on the wrong side of this issue, which is where some, not all, Southern Democrats once were on civil rights. The arc of justice may bend slowly and cynically, but yesterday it bent.”
