The Holder-Worshipping Doyle

Turns out that Doylie's "race-profile" requirement isn't exactly new.

Bill Lann Lee, head of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, insisted that the LAPD be put under a federal monitor who would dictate nearly every aspect of policing practice and policy for a minimum of five years....Included in the proposed decree's 180 provisions were mandates to record the race of every suspect whom officers stopped, though the Rampart scandal had had nothing to do with so-called "racial profiling."

...Complying with the federal straitjacket cost the always cash-starved LAPD $40 million in its first year and $50 million each year thereafter, according to city estimates

Well, $50 million is an interesting marker, anyway. S'pose it will cost Wisconsin the same? Less? More?

We know Doylie doesn't really care.
