Controlling Precedent


I do not like to copy other people’s work, even with attribution, because I feel if you are reading this liberal/progressive blog, you are also reading the blogs that I read.

Having said that, I feel that this piece by Steven D at BooMan Tribune is too important  to chance that someone may miss it.

The third paragraph is the heart of the story

This includes police officers. Specifically, the use of pepper spay by law enforcement against non-violent protestors has been found to be a violation of of the 4th amendment rights of the protesters in the case of Lundberg v. Humboldt, which is the controlling precedent in the 9th Circuit, which has jurisdiction over any cases brought against the police for their actions in Seattle and Oakland.

It is a long read and the best five minutes you’ll spend today.
