alright BACK UP! By far the most racist thing I've ever read in my life, and theres no way that should actually make a difference.  If I went back and gave you a quick summary of this article; I would emphasize the idea that if a white man shot 6 people, we would be taking into consideration his mental health or what may be the causes; but, if it was a "brown skinned bearded man," as the article puts it, doing the shooting; his mental health wouldn't even be taken into consideration, he is just a terrorist who hates America.  With how racist this article is, it really makes you think.  I mean, how true is that? We claim to be a free country with no discrimination due to religion and especially race.  So why is it that a man wearing a turban who kills someone hates America, while a white man who kills a hundred people has a mental health problem? America.

I think that if you have an opinion you should have to keep it through the case unless there was evidence or some factor that made you switch.

Eric Olson's curator insight, May 9, 2013 11:47 AM

I think that it is suprising that while writing something that would strike it down he changed his mind and opinon. I think you should be pretty sure if you are writing the strike down.

I don't think that it is a big deal that one guy switched his vote. I bet this kind of thing happens on the lower courts every day and we don't hear about it. Just because it is the Supreme court it is a big deal. It is one of the biggest issues in the government today and potentially this could make a big difference.

I think that they should tell him what changes should be made and do it right away and get it done because it is such a big and important bill. They will have to be a little more leaniant too to get the bill through.
