Sonoma County Sheriff accused of racial profiling (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2008/09/06/state/n105809D61.DTL&hw=immigrant&sn=002&sc=581 - broken link)

A federal lawsuit accuses the Sonoma County Sheriff's Department of unlawful detentions and racial profiling of Latinos suspected of being illegal immigrants.

I would sue this guy too if this happened to me.

I will reserve my opinion until I get a look at all the facts. All this article says is that this immigrant rights group claims it happened. There are two sides to every story. Plus if any illegal alien was caught this way-they still deserve to be deported. If the one and only reason that they are being pulled over is because they look a certain way-that is one thing and wrong. However-if they are being pulled over because of traffic violations and their immigration status is checked-along with anyone else's-I have no problem with that.

I agree, I'm sure this story will get more attention.
