Judge Ashley Tabaddor Files Suit against Department of Justice for Violating First Amendment and Civil Rights Act of 1964 | Less Government More Fun | Scoop.it


August 12, 2014, Los Angeles, CA - The Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans (PAAIA) was today informed of a suit filed against the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) by Judge Ashley Tabaddor, an immigration judge for the U.S. Immigration Court. In this suit, Judge Tabaddor challenges an order that indefinitely recuses her from hearing cases involving Iranian nationals, citing that the order violates her First Amendment rights of free speech and association. The suit also notes that the order is racially discriminatory under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The suit, Tabaddor v. Holder et al., charges that the DOJ based its disqualification order on racially-motivated and discriminatory criteria, specifically Judge Tabaddor’s Iranian heritage and her leadership role within the Iranian American community.

CNN Reports Officer Wilson's Account Of #MikeBrown Shooting

CNN Reports Officer Wilson's Account Of #MikeBrown Shooting | Less Government More Fun | Scoop.it
Over the weekend a friend of Officer Darren Wilson called a radio station giving the officer's account of the Michael Brown shooting.  CNN's Don Lemon spoke to people close to the investigation who confirmed that the radio story was the same as the one Officer Wilson gave to investigators. 

 

Don Lemon summarized Officer Wilson's account for anchor Brook Baldwin:

Lemon:  Over the weekend, it came to my and my producer's knowledge there was a radio interview out there. Apparently -- allegedly with a friend of the officer, Darren Wilson. Apparently, she spoke to Darren Wilson before all of this became the big deal that it is. And she gave -- he gave her his account. She went on a local radio station and gave her account of exactly what he told her, again, allegedly. And here's what it says. It says, a source with detailed knowledge of the investigation -- this is what we have learned -- into the Ferguson, Missouri, shooting of Michael Brown says that the account of a caller to St. Louis radio station, KTFK, matches the account of officer Darren Wilson as to what happened at the time of the shooting, Brooke.

The caller to the radio station identified only as "Josie" told listeners she knew officer Wilson's side of the story in detail. She said she laid out Wilson's account, and I’m going to summarize it below. We'll get the audio for you just a little bit later on on CNN, so be patient.

He says the boys were walking in the street. He rolled the window down and told them to get out of the street. He may have called for backup when he pulled over. He heard the call for the strong-arm robbery and saw the teens carrying something that might have been cigars. He pulled over and when he tried to get out of the car twice he was pushed back into the car by Michael. Michael then punched him in the face, and Darren reached for his gun. Michael grabbed the gun, and at one point, had the gun pushed against -- Darren's  hip-- pushed against Darren's hip so Darren pushed the gun away and the gun went off. Michael and his friend ran and Darren got out of the car and pursued, as is protocol. He told them to freeze and Michael and his friend turned around.

Michael started to taunt him and said he wouldn't shoot him, meaning he wouldn't shoot Michael. Michael then bum-rushed him and started coming at him full-speed, so Darren started shooting. She said that Darren really thinks he was on something. He said the final shot was in the forehead and he fell two or three feet in front of the officer.

Now the source with detailed knowledge of the investigation into the shooting told CNN that this account is accurate. The source declined to add any more detail and again, we're going to have the audio of this radio interview coming up here on CNN. Here is the bottom line. I want to read this again. The caller into the radio station, into KTFK, says that Michael -- that the officer here, Darren Wilson, gave her the account, she gave the radio station the account. A source with detailed knowledge of the investigation, into the Ferguson, Missouri shooting of Michael Brown says that the account of a caller to St. Louis radio station, KTFK , matches the account of officer Darren Wilson, as to what happened at the time of the shooting. The caller to the radio station identified, Brooke, only as Josie, told listeners she knew officer Wilson's side of the story in detail. She laid out Wilson's account, which I have just summarized for you. There you have it, Brooke.

click the link/pic for video of CNN w/Don Lemon and audio of the caller to Dana Loesch's show. Based on this account and the consistency of the officers testimony and, eyewitness audio discussing what happened during the shooting and the results of two autopsy reports it sounds like Officer Wilson may be vindicated in shooting Michael Brown.

Saying the immigration issue is why House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost to political unknown Dave Brat in Tuesday's historic Republican primary is to mistake the effect for the cause.
Brat did talk a lot about the immigration issue during the final week before Tuesday's voting, but he could hardly avoid it thanks to the flood of Central American women and children pouring across the border into the U.S. in Texas, then being shipped by President Obama to Arizona.
But simply pointing to immigration to explain Cantor's loss is a Democratic talking point, as illustrated by the Democratic Strategist's observation early this morning:
