Just another example of how America is becoming a nation of no laws.
Instead of the rule of law, we now have 'dictates' and 'fiats', some of which are ad hoc on the spur of the moment, or based solely on some single judge's opinion, even if they overturn a legitimate public vote, and the expressed will of the American people.
Why do we even have 'laws' anymore, if they can be changed or amended in a moment, and can be applied differently to this person or that person based on the preference of a judge? We no longer have laws in the traditional sense, we now have 'rulers' who tell us what to do, what to eat, what to believe, and what to think, regardless of our own will and opinion.
We are becoming the same kind of police state that exists all over the world. A state where everything is 'illegal' until a judge rules that it is not. And, we are all criminals until we can prove we are not, depending on the whim of some person in a position of authority, and depending on your race, wealth, sexual preference, etcetera, etcetera, etc...
But one fact we know for certain about American Law, is that if you are White, you are screwed. White people are presumed 'guilty'. Black people and other minorities are presumed to be victims, innocent, no matter what they do, or what 'laws' they break. This is the most profound injustice and absurdity of the America legal system, as Sotomayor so adequately pointed out.
