Oakland crime issue goes far deeper than racial profiling

It’s easier to discredit the Oakland Police Department than it is to take a hard, sobering look at the crime that drives a police officer’s actions in the field. The department’s recent report on the race and ethnicity of the people who get pulled over or stopped by Oakland police officers showed that 62 percent of the stops involved African American people. In a city where black citizens comprise 28 percent of the population, some say the data supports community concerns about racial profiling by police

Gay weddings halted in Michigan

MASON, Mich. An appeals court reinstituted Michigans constitutional ban on gay marriage, but not before several hundred same-sex couples rushed to the states county clerks offices to get hitched.

The order on Saturday by a federal appeals court in Cincinnati to at least temporarily restore the ban that Michigan voters approved in 2004 came after Glenna DeJong, 53, and Marsha Caspar, 51, of Lansing, were the first on Saturday to arrive at the Ingham County Courthouse in the central Michigan city of Mason. DeJong and Caspar, who have been together for 27 years, received their license and were married by Ingham County Clerk Barb Byrum.

I figured in my lifetime it would happen, Caspar said. But now, when it happens now, its just overwhelming. I still cant believe it. I dont think its hit me yet.

Similar nuptials followed one after another, at times en masse, in at least four of Michigans 83 counties. Those four Oakland, Muskegon, Ingham and Washtenaw counties issued more than 300 marriage licenses to same-sex couples Saturday.

DeJong said the threat of a stay was all the encouragement they needed.

Come Monday, we might not be able to do it, so we knew we had a short window of time, she said.

She was right. Later Saturday, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals froze until at least Wednesday a decision by a lower court judge to overturn Michigans ban. The appeals court said the time-out will allow a more reasoned consideration of the states request to stop same-sex marriages.

The courts order was posted just a few hours after it told the winning side to respond to Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuettes request for a stay by noon Tuesday.

In his appeal, Schuette noted the U.S. Supreme Court in January suspended a similar decision that struck down Utahs gay-marriage ban.

Voters approved the gay marriage ban in a landslide in 2004. But in Fridays historic decision, U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman said the ballot box is no defense to a law that tramples the rights of same-sex couples.
