A Good Day for the Constitution

The Justice Department is changing its charging policies so that those who commit low-level, non-violent drug crimes will not face harsh mandatory minimum sentences.

And in Floyd v. New York, a federal judge has found New York City’s minority-heavy stop-and-frisk policies unconstitutional (Duh!).  The judge noted that 88% of those targeted by the NYPD are released without being charged with anything, which told her that there wasn’t sufficient suspicion to stop them in the first place.
