I’m appalled : the Justice Dept just quietly removed all references to a free press and unconstitutional racial gerrymandering from its manual ...Doesn’t sound very just to me . #freepress #gerrymandering #dontdeletejustice #doj #usattorneysmanual
So upsetting that this seems to be just slipping by -
A subsection entitled “Need for Free Press and Public Trial,” — included since at least 1988— has been completely removed.
also DELETED : “The Voting Section defends from unjustified attack redistricting plans designed to provide minority voters fair opportunities to elect candidates of their choice and endeavors to achieve racially fair results where courts find...that redistricting plans constitute unconstitutional racial gerrymanders.” Racial gerrymandering: drawing district lines to intentionally disperse minority groups, thus diluting their influence in a district and making it impossible to elect representatives.
