W O W. Did they just try to argue that, okay they'll be searching more black people without cause, but they'll likely stop more crime because they'll be searching more black people, so all things told it's a net win, right?

I still like him, even with his ongoing weirdness that he can present facts and that will prove useful. A little bit interesting that the block voting was ended to curtail lefty/union power and now they're looking to bring it back to curtail lefty/union power, though I say weird it's also classic management to seek progress by reversing previous decisions, and no doubt we can look forward to some future reversal of the reversal.
