Justice Sotomayor Calls It

Democracy Rock Star Dahlia Lithwick at Slate delivers the goods on Justice Sotomayor’s urgent messaging embedded in recent SCOTUS rulings:

CT-16-7-5-SSotomayor-SCOTUS“We must not pretend that the countless people who are routinely targeted by police are ‘isolated.’ They are the canaries in the coal mine whose deaths, civil and literal, warn us that no one can breathe in this atmosphere. They are the ones who recognize that unlawful police stops corrode all our civil liberties and threaten all our lives. Until their voices matter too, our justice system will continue to be anything but.”
