“A federal appeals court in New York has ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional.
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that the Act’s Section 3, which prohibits federal recognition of same-sex marriages, violates the equal protection clause of the Constitution. The 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston issued a similar ruling in May.”
Since this cute little boy disappeared in 1979 the NYC Police have been looking for his killer. I remember how much the City was involved with this case. CNN just released the following statement:
Pedro Hernandez, a former Manhattan store clerk who once lived in the same neighborhood as Etan Patz, was arrested in the boy’s 1979 death, New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says.
Kelly says police have a signed confession from Hernandez.
Patz’s disappearance received national attention and helped trigger a national movement that focuses on missing children.
