Out in Oakland police have stopped DUI checkpoints because they were ensnaring too many illegal immigrants. Think about it: A police tactic designed to ensnare one type of law-breaker is abandoned because it's catching too many other types of law-breakers. Only in America.
Now, if only some Latino group could prove that illegal aliens were also being discriminated against by red-light cameras . . .
Update 12:26 p.m.: Alert reader S.D. notes that yesterday Oakland mayor Jerry Brown overturned the ban. Good for him.
