Comments on Guest opinion: SB 1070

Supreme Court failed to fully protect against racial profiling

'Papers please' provision will lead to abuses

Though making an effort to limit the opportunities for racial profiling, the Supreme Court still upheld one of S.B. 1070’s central and most offensive provisions, the requirement that law enforcement officers demand proof of legal status from anyone they suspect is undocumented.

Since this is titled “Guest Opinion”, why is it in the Nation/World Section?

And, where’s the balance? All I am seeing is opinion pieces from the crybabies who didn’t get their way. Where’s an opinion piece from someone saying SCOTUS did the right thing?

Come on Sentinel, you promise us no spin…isn’t posting a flood of opinions from only one side spin?

Thanks for pointing out this commentary was misfiled. It’s in the Op section now.

We’ve posted a number of opinion pieces from people hailing the decision - from Brewer, McCain & Kyl, etc.

The majority of right-wing think tanks that churn out commentary are business-oriented, and have been mum about SB 1070, if not openly opposed to it.

@Dylan Smith

Well, fair ‘nuff. I take it from your last sentence is that you’re posting much more opposition because the supporters haven’t been as vocal.

Since you’re in a question-answering mood this morning, perhaps you can enlighten as to why comments are closed on stories relating to the money-pit street car…

@Bret Linden

I shall investigate and correct whatever’s gone wrong with the comments on that for you.
