Judge who ruled "Stop and Frisk" Unconstitutional removed from bench and ruling blocked

I searched for this story and couldn't find it anywhere. If it is on here then please delete this one of course. Knowing the DP, if this had been put on here then it should still be easily found. This is sickening and surely a hint at things to come. Have a good day.

A US appeals court has blocked changes to a controversial New York City police programme that a judge ruled had violated the rights of minorities.

In an unusual move, the Second Circuit also removed Judge Shira Scheindlin from the stop-and-frisk case.

The court said her impartiality was called into question by media interviews she gave during the trial.

The policy, in which police stop and search those they suspect of criminal behaviour, reached its peak in 2011.

In August, Judge Scheindlin ruled the New York Police Department had violated the US constitution in the way it carried out stop and frisk, but not through the policy itself.

NYPD's 'stop-and-frisk' policy okayed by appeals court

On Thursday, a federal appeals court approved the controversial "stop-and-frisk" policy employed by the New York Police Department. A US District Court judge deemed the policy unconstitutional in August for unlawfully targeting minorities. The three-judge panel for the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit not only okayed the policy, but also removed District Court Judge Shira A. Scheindlin, citing impropriety from the bench after Scheindlin made opinionated comments on stop-and-frisk to the media. Sam Sacks speaks with RT correspondent Anastasia Churkina about the case and the reaction from candidates in the New York City mayoral race.

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals stayed Judge Shira Scheindlin's order for the NYPD to make significant changes to its stop-and-frisk policy, ordering the judge removed from case stating in an Order that she violated the code of conduct governing the behavior of sitting judges in showing impropriety and in yapping to the press. She was spanked.

Appeals Court Blocks Judge Shira Scheindlin's Stop-and-Frisk Ruling, Removes Her From Case

That whooshing sound you just heard are eyebrows shooting to hairlines on reporters' heads all over the city. That's because the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals has just blocked Judge Shira Scheindlin's order for the NYPD to make significant changes to its stop-and-frisk policy, and ordered the judge removed from case, saying that she violated the code of conduct governing the behavior of sitting judges.

On August 12, Scheindlin ruled that the NYPD had violated the constitutional rights of 19 New Yorkers who were stopped and frisked, because they were stopped "without a legal basis," violating the Fourth Amendment, and targeted because of their race, violating the Fourteenth. She ordered that an independent monitor be created to oversee the department, and ruled that the city had "acted with deliberate indifference to constitutional deprivations caused by its employees," i.e. the police. Mayor Bloomberg promptly appealed the ruling.

A lot can go wrong if the police just detain people for no reason. Real wrong.

It looks like Bloomberg's

It looks like Bloomberg's criminal organization is exercising it's power.

She's wrong, look at her rulling

First this: "A US appeals court has blocked changes to a controversial New York City police programme that a judge ruled had violated the rights of minorities."

Then this: "In August, Judge Scheindlin ruled the New York Police Department had violated the US constitution in the way it carried out stop and frisk, but not through the policy itself."

She feels that it's ok to stop and frisk, but not when it is detrimental to minorities (read blacks). This is not constitutional. No one should be stopped and frisk without a warrant and reasonable suspiscion that they have committed a crime. This judge is no saint.

With a warrant...

With a warrant there is no reason for a police officer to frisk you. With a warrant they will search you.

The Judge Insists She Did Not Discuss The Case With The Press

but claims the media ran stories that made it sound as though she did. (Leave it to the press to be sloppy with the truth and err to the benefit of the state and to the disfavor of the Constitution.)

She had ruled that NYPD's "stop and frisk" program violates the 4th Amendment and, as practiced, also the 14th amendment. I agree with the former, but not the latter. More minorities are frisked because the higher crime areas have a higher minority population, not because they are applying the law unequally (that is Bloomberg's claim and, though I disagree with him on almost everything, I can buy that explanation).

But, again, they should not be frisking anyone without probable cause and a warrant, if the Bill of Rights applies.

I asked before and I'll ask again: Does the Bill Of Rights apply to every municipal government, or just to the federal and state governments?
