"Attorney General Mukasey and the Invisible People" By Randolph Parrish

This is the story of some little people. It's the story of Elmo the cab driver, an immigrant from Somalia who sought a new life in America. Elmo knows what police abuse is like; at home, being arrested means terror; your guilt or innocence doesn't matter.

This is the story of Sgt. Shelton, a cop who did an honest job. Most places, you do an honest job, you get rewarded. Sgt. Shelton got investigated.

This is the story of half-Jewish white kid whose father was raised by a black family. You can't get much more diverse than that.


History, said Clemenceau, is full of examples of brave men opposing tyrants. But on scarcely a page can you find the record of anyone who will lead the fight against public opinion.

And in that category of missing heroes, you can as of this week add our new Attorney General Mukasey in one of his first decisions; and his Justice Department - a department that, regardless of its mission statement, is evidently not inclined to argue for a common fraternity of rights, both for those we see, and for those society refuses to see.

Sue. Sue. Sue. But this is normal as was the case in North Carolina so unless the media gets involved there will be no justice for the Nazi. But Sue. Sue. Sue. And maybe some justice will be had.
