Mayor James Knowles III talks about how Michael Brown’s death changed Ferguson

James Knowles III, who is white, was re-elected to a third three-year term last year. He said the election was evidence that despite those who speak out at council meetings, he has plenty of support, including in the black community. Knowles, 40, is proud of the work Ferguson has done to reform its police and court practices, reforms that he points out began weeks after Brown’s death, long before they were mandated by a 2016 agreement with the Justice Department. The Ferguson Police Department drew heavy criticism in 2014 for many reasons: It had only three black officers out of 53 in a city that is two-thirds African American. Police were accused of racial profiling in traffic stops, of treating blacks with aggression. Today, Knowles said, the department is almost evenly split between white and black officers. Officers now wear body cameras. They’re more involved with people rather than just reacting to crime.

Trump calls for death penalty for hate crimes

Will The U.S. Census Actually Be More Accurate? (HBO)

Another controversial Trump administration policy had its day in the Supreme Court today: Adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

The issue at hand was whether Trump’s Commerce Secretary, Wilbur Ross, had the right to add the question. And whether it matters that the question may lead to a massive undercounting of immigrants.

Trump has the advantage of having two of his appointees — Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh — on the bench. And by the end of the 80-minute arguments, it seemed they and the other conservatives were ready to side with the administration.

The Census takes place every 10 years, as required by the Constitution. The results are used to determine how many congressional seats, and how many Electoral College votes, each state gets. They also help determine how almost $900 billion in federal funding is allocated.

The 2010 Census asked 10 basic questions of every household in America: How many people lived there, how old they were, what their race, ethnicity, and gender were. It didn’t ask whether people were citizens or not. The government did ask a citizenship question in every census between 1890 and 1950. It was taken out by 1960.

But last year, the Bureau announced it was bringing the question back. It claimed the Justice Department needed the citizenship data to properly enforce the Voting Rights Act. But civil rights groups thought Ross’s real motive was to drive down immigrant participation. So they sued and won at lower-level courts in New York and California.

With surveys scheduled to be printed this summer, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case.
