C.L.I.C.K. for Justice and Equality is an agent of change alerting our social community of injustices and inequalities among the underserved, disadvantaged, and disenfranchised individual or group. A disadvantaged or disenfranchised person or group is anyone who is socially, culturally, and politically deprived of or oppressed from life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Change takes place through our legislative body of Senators and State Representatives, not from the Judicial bench.
Judge Rules Against Arizona Sheriff in Racial Profiling Case
Maverick Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio violated the constitutional rights of Latinos who were stopped and detained as part of a crackdown on illegal immigrants, a federal judge has ruled.
Arpaio's office cannot detain Latino drivers and passengers only on the suspicion they are illegal immigrants or to use race as a reason to stop a vehicle, U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow ruled.
