DROxINxTHExWIND: You can't take identifying characteristics out of the police report. But "he's black" should not be probable cause to make someone a suspect.


QFT

If we could get that simple standard done correctly, it would eliminate 90% of police misconduct.
 
2014-01-30 12:41:45 PM  
Maybe if would be less offensive to simply refer to black suspects as thugs
 
2014-01-30 12:41:55 PM  
Those comments are pretty damn racist.

Hey, isn't that biased against those who wear tin foil hats and believe that some people are actually reptiles in disguise?

I got some little friends who are 3/4 of more latterly African descent and 1/4 Irish.  While I strongly doubt that they would ever arouse police interest, sussing their ethnicity at a glance would probably be difficult.  What if our perp is a native Strine?  Some people from India are in no way melanin-deficient yet are classified, classically, as Caucasian.  This innovation would be desirable to me, were I the authorities, as race is a completely unscientific idea.  No one has developed a convenient, portable race-ometer.

DROxINxTHExWIND: lennavan: Dragonflew: So if "black" is coming up so often in the suspect description that multiple black groups are rallying to have it removed, do they want students instead to just assume the perp is black? I would like to know the actual ratio of black:white suspects, it has to be pretty high to cause an outcry like this.

I'd be interested to read their letter sent to the local African American community to suggest they stop committing crimes perpetuating the stereotype.  Oh wait.


Have you gotten your letter yet about your role in the death of those two black men from West Virginia who were shot by the old white guy? You know, because you're white.


No but I don't remember reading about white groups sending a letter written to the local police authority biatching about reporting that the guy was white.

Delightful Mister Horse: I go to this school. We've had a litany of emailed public safety alerts from the Campus PD after a streak of robberies last month, and almost every single robbery involved black perps.

Clearly what this represents is a monopolization of petty crime by blacks, in the same way blacks have dominated athletics and the entertainment industry, to the detriment of other ethnic groups, for example the Hmong, that live in the metro area.   Perhaps we can have some sort of car sharing program for small time crooks to bring in Hmong from St. Paul, or perhaps some sort of criminal exchange program and bus in poor white meth heads from the country to help with the hold ups.

The alternative way to do it is simply define racial profiling as correct police conduct.  See for instance NYC "stop and frisk" and Arizona's attempt with SB1070.

But on the plus side, we're going to save an ass load of money by not haveing to investagate crimes, arrest criminals, have trials, and put people in prison (assuming they're people).

No, we got it, we just didn't want to point that out for fear ov being labled a racists.

As for you pointing it out...

It must be nice when your worst fear regarding racism is that someone may call you a name on the internet. You all should start a support group.


They do. UNCF

If some white guy robs one of these groups' meetings at gunpoint, will they mention the color of his skin to police?

Later this year, the university lawyers will be met by someone how claims to represent the "Hatless Student Minority." "Just because they cannot afford or perhaps chose to not wear hats, should these students be subject to increase scrutiny by the local law enforcement? I would like to think that we live in a society where the choice of head covering or choosing no head covering whatsoever has no bearing on a student or their propensity to commit crimes." The university lawyers will beat this guy senseless and leave him in the recycle barrel with those sticky empty plastic soda bottles that are going right in to the landfill anyways. We know it. Claude, the Janitor told us "It all goes in to the dumpster". And he should know.

Later that night, some hatless person will commit a crime and the hatted community will flood the social media with comments like "Another Hatless crime. When will it end? When we get rid of the hatless. that's when." "Oh look. A crime and there's no hat. What a surprise!"

And then they'll come for the hatless and I'll say nothing. Because I have this awesome fedora that I perch just so on my unhatless head. Haul them off to Hatlessvania, I says.

And this is exactly why race relations suck in this country and people feel that the black community doesn't want to deal with epidemic of crime being perpetrated by young black males.

Seriously, these are educated black organizations and they are essentially putting their  feelings ahead of public safety.  And to be clear, we aren't talking about stop and frisks absent probable cause, we are talking about one of the top 5 descriptive factors you can give about someone  after a crime has been committed......sex...color...age...body description...clothing.

I don't know the answer to the volume of crime being perpetrated by young black males, but pretending like it doesn't happen is not the answer.

I know people aren't going to like the word "epidemic" or "volume of crime", but if you look at crime stats, there is a disproportionate amount of crime committed by that demographic compared to their percentage of the overall population.

"The repeated black, black, black suspect," Taylor said. "And what that does it really discomforts the mental and physical comfort for students on campus because they feel like suspicions begin to increase."

Well, Taylor, then encourage your black, black, black colleagues to stop, you know, committing crimes.

Best to just assume that all black people are wanted criminals. Call police if you see one, and stay indoors, dead-bolting all main entrances and exits. If you have children, and see a black person, restrain those children by any means necessary until the threat has passed and the area is fully white again. If needed, dying one's face to appear 'black' can be a healthy strategy, as seen in the historical film "Black Like Me". Many white people, however, are unaware of the differing lip dimensions which may throw off the illusion. Be sure to use phrases such as "Howdy!", and "Wassup?". Walk with a dance-like gait, and pretend that you know the black guy on the evening news, who ever that is now. Do not act racist! Rent the movie "Blacula" for further understanding.
