Justice Sonia Sotomayor Shows Anti-Police Bias
Washington, DC – In a scathing dissent to the U.S. Supreme Court’s refusal to take a certain case, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor not only attacked police officers and their credibility but accused the nation’s highest court of developing a “disturbing trend” of siding with police officers.
One of the Supreme Court’s two most liberal Justices, she continued in her rant and said that this trend involved “siding” with police officers who have been accused of excessive force, at the expense of who she referred to as victims, according to The Washington Post. I would refer to them as defendants, suspects, or criminals.
Justice Sotomayor was joined in her dissent by the Supreme Court’s second most liberal Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Neither is known for being supportive of law enforcement, but attacking the court’s prior judgments is new territory.
