“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 our civil liberties and threaten all our lives. Until their voices matter too, our justice system will continue to be anything but.”

–From Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s dissent in in Utah v. Strieff, June 20, 2016.

1 Response for “Wednesday Briefing: TNR Forum, Chicks With Cans, Gun Safety for Kids, Diabetes Awareness”

  1. Dave says:

    Chicks with “cans” does a great service but the name they give themselves is derogatory towards woman and I don’t see why its neccessary to lower the value of a woman just to get a few extra canned good items. I understand sex sells but we can be a better example for our young boys and girls than giving sexual innuendos to our names for fund raising.
