Overnight Open Thread (6 Mar 2015)

DOJ and Ferguson

I know y'all won't be surprised by this. Holder frames Ferguson PD for racism using bogus 'disparate impact' stats.

Outrageously, the nation's top prosecutor failed to control for factors that explain the racial "disparity" in traffic stops, such as speeding, DUI, expired license plates, headlight, seat-belt and child-restraint violations and other reasons for being pulled over.

Holder's own department statistics show that African Americans, on average, violate speeding and other traffic laws at much greater rates than whites.

The Justice Department's research arm, the National Institute of Justice, explains that differences in traffic stops can simply be attributed to "differences in offending."

Duh. For another example, "Seat-belt usage is chronically lower among blacks," the NIJ says in a 2013 study. "If a law enforcement agency aggressively enforces violations, police will stop more black drivers."


If Holder is going to dismantle the Ferguson PD, then he may as well dismantle the other 1,800 PDs as they will have similar numbers.

Health Care

Free health care is killing the states. I guess its not free then.

Booty

Why men like women with big curvy butts except it's not really their butts that is the attraction according to a new study on lumbar curvature.

researchers discovered that instead of it actually being the muscular structure of the gluteus maximus or any buttock fat (or silicone implants) discerned atop or inside the butt that was a main factor of attractiveness to males - it was actually the curvature of the spine that attracts the male species.
