Blacks Sue Business For Not Engaging In Racial Profiling

The world just got a little bit loonier:

Attorney Chris Hurley said the 7-Eleven’s operator knew the area surrounding the store suffered from high street crime and should have had well-trained security that could have prevented the actions that led to Gaines’ death.

But if the cops do it, the blacks and lawyers would be caterwauling about MUH RAYSHUL PWOFYLYNG and MUH DISPIT IMPAK.

Alternatively, I could have entitled this post:

Lawfare Loses

Happy day.

But…

This, the activists’ complaint said, violated the Illinois Civil Rights Act of 2003, which forbids municipalities from engaging in policies that create have a disparate negative impact on racial and ethnic minorities.

Do you realize what a legal tar baby that is? Almost all positive public policy (positive, meaning that it is the result of written laws and ordinances, as opposed to negative, which is the lack of action on the part of public officials) has a disparate impact on racial and ethnic minorities. Murder being a crime has a disparate impact on black men.  That said, I think the main reason why this lawsuit was laughed out of court was because the Illinois Civil Rights Act of 2003 forbids positive policies that have a disparate impact on blah blah blah, but it can’t do anything about negative policies.

UPDATE

The actual ICRA 2003 text, which isn’t very long.  But, here’s the relevant section:

No unit of State, county, or local government in Illinois shall…utilize criteria or methods of administration that have the effect of subjecting individuals to discrimination because of their race, color, national origin, or gender.

Which means I was right, there can only be a violation if there is a positive public action, not a negative one.

Haven’t done one of these in while:

At least 20 of the 111 black firefighters hired by the Chicago Fire Department after a marathon discrimination lawsuit had not been medically cleared by a department physician before starting work and two of them “suffered serious medical events and died while off-duty,” the city’s inspector general disclosed Tuesday.

Well That’s Easy

Fox 59 Indianapolis:

Indiana’s gun laws are again in the spotlight here and nationwide after some recent remarks by President Obama.

The president blamed Indiana’s gun laws for gun violence in Chicago during a town hall meeting Thursday. The comments echoed similar ones he made in October.

“Well, the problem is, is that about 30, 40 percent of those guns are coming from Indiana, across the border, where there are much laxer laws,” President Obama said.

Well then using that logic, all of Indiana should be a crime ridden hell hole, because that’s where the evil undocumented transactions are happening.

But, we already know that Indiana has magic dirt, and certain parts of Chicago have tragic dirt.

Or, maybe Trump’s great wall should go between Illinois and Indiana, not the United States and Mexico.  Or better yet, it should go around certain parts of Chicago, almost making those parts an open air prison.

C-Trib:

Departing U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan used the final address of his tenure to call for a “new deal” for youth in Chicago and the nation, but also waded into the city’s police controversy with a call for changes in law enforcement training and conduct to repair eroded trust between police and the community.

(snip)

Duncan also discussed gun violence, repeating his recent calls for stricter gun laws.

Oops, sorry, I just gave it away.





Quintonio

“Quintonio” must be Ebonics for “fifth kid.”

Whatever it is, get used to it, because you’re about to hear it over and over again, as BLM turns him into a martyr.

Also notice that:

He said Bettie Jones lived in a first-floor apartment with her boyfriend and was the mother of four daughters and a son. Her children range in age from 19 to 38. They include 19-year-old twins.

Although Quintonio was 19 years old himself, he was not one of the 19-year old twins of hers.  Also notice that Bettie Jones herself was 55.  55 minus 38 minus 9 months.
