High Court Clarifies Racial Bias Standard.

What's up with this guy Clarence Thomas.  He was the lone dissenter in this racial bias case.  Event Rehnquist and Scalia didn't join him (although they did in the Texas death penalty case - Supreme Court overturns Texas death sentence conviction)

In a dissent, Justice Clarence Thomas said a state has "broad discretion to craft its own rules of criminal procedure."


Sounds good enough to me. Why get the Feds involved?

Thomas' opinion is a bit of gesturing, a bit of empty rhetoric. It sounds good, but like most of his opinions, that's about all it does. Define "broad discretion." I would bet that everyone on the court would agree with that sentence. :)

What's up with Thomas?  What's always been up with him?  He's a sell out.

He's either paid off or he has some axe to grind with some other African-Americans or something?

You should be even MORE thankful that I am not the President!!

Seriously... how much power do you want the Federal Government to HAVE over our state governments? Do you think we should abolish state government and just have The Senate, House and Supreme Court RULE EVERYTHING?

I thought you guys were "liberals"? I'm confused........

Typically, the "Liberal" is for larger government - more regulations, more control, higher taxes, more social programs etc... While the "Conservative" is supposed to be for less government interference - free market, lower taxes to pay for fewer social programs, etc...

I'm sure we'll now be treated to somone's diatribe about how Bush is really expanding the government, or whatever... Please save your breath, I said "Typically".

Just enough to protect our constitution.

No but having all these governments does make things inefficient IMO.

These stereotypes are old as the hill.

Get a life John :laugh:

I'll buy that. I think we should scrap the Federal Government instead of the State Governments though.
