Stereotyping/Racial Profiling Debate
Some comments I have found
As long as racial fear can be used to justify disproportionate force, killings like that of Mike Brown in Ferguson will continue.
Ferguson has reinforced racial fear and lethal stereotypes
“As Attorney General, I have repeatedly made clear that racial profiling by law enforcement is not only wrong, it is misguided and ineffective – because it can mistakenly focus investigative efforts, waste precious resources and, ultimately, undermine the public trust. Particularly in light of recent incidents we’ve seen at the local level – and the concerns about trust in the criminal justice process which so many have raised throughout the nation – it’s imperative that we take every possible action to institute sound, fair and strong policing practices.”
