Posted on 04/26/2017 8:56:14 AM PDT by ColdOne
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote Monday that the court is developing a disturbing trend of siding with police officers accused of excessive force at the expense of their alleged victims, a notion disputed by two of her colleagues.
Sotomayor was arguing that the court should have accepted the case of Richardo Salazar-Limon, who was shot in the back by Houston police officer Chris Thompson in 2010. A federal district judge dismissed Salazar-Limons suit before trial, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit upheld that decision.

No need for a SC justice to comment.
More of that Latina wisdom Obummer wanted to infuse into the SCOTUS.
The Wise Latina would always prefer to side against police officers. What a surprise....
I guess she sides with the BLM movement and La Raza as examples.
Too bad being on the SCOTUS is a lifetime position. Odumbo got away with murder several times when he get her appointed.
Ah, the “wise Latina” speaks.
Delusion runs deep
I have zero sympathy for anyone who fights with a police officer and dies as a result.
It doesn’t matter if you are armed are not.
the police officer is armed... and when you engage him ... the assumption MUST be that you “could” get a hold of the officers weapon and use it against them, thus always justifying the use to deadly force to end the encounter by the police.
So... it’s simple... don’t resist.. and you don’t get shot.
Have an issue with the situation? take it to court.
Sotomayor presenting the new and different definition of the term “wise.”
Wow. The biggest mystery in the world is why she didn’t retire during the 0bama administration so he could appoint another extreme leftist like her. She rolled the dice on Hillary being coronated.
Sodamachine is diabetic and over weight. She won’t be around as long as Buzzy.
Once you realize they are all on the same side, Gope and dems, it all makes sense.
How about she concerns herself with the law and constitution?
More often than not, the word “wise” is followed by a certain well-known 3-letter word.
Let’s remember the recent case where the cops banged on Andrew Scott’s door at 2 AM because his lights were on and they were looking for a motorcycle thief. He was playing video games, answered the door with a gun in his hand, and was immediately shot dead. Eh, cops did nothing illegal.
Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor:
Living proof that Twinkies cause Brain Damage.
Obviously Salazar-Limon count have been “Sotomayor’s Son”...
Simple. The public is getting fed up with the amount of crime in their neighborhoods.
