Show The Papers!

I recall my childhood when one could walk the streets of America without being hassled by police. In New York City, over 800,000 people were halted last year and police demanded the right to search and seize. Arizona passed a law which allows police to halt individuals and demand to see their papers proving they are a native born American. A US Court of Appeals upheld the legality of the law on the assumption police will only halt those who look “suspicious.”

In all honestly I do not ordinarily walk around with a copy of my birth certificate or any paper which proves that I was born in the US or am a naturalized citizen. I am certain the police of Arizona would never halt anyone just because they look like a Mexican. We all know that police wander wealthy communities halting people who look suspicious. If you doubt me just check who is halted and where they are halted.
