Snarfangel: Too bad his supervisor didn't have a physics degree. He could have started with "Assume a spherical criminal..."
Godscrack: Right wing racist cops? That almost never happens[img94.imageshack.us image 250x461][img32.imageshack.us image 294x379][img715.imageshack.us image 428x296]
Arthur Jumbles: He should have just said stop and frisk any male teenager and the policy would have been just about as effective. Teenage males are assholes and its society's job to keep them in line. We used to have rituals that did the job..... war games, tests of strength and endurance, vision questions, and the like that helped to keep the worst in check.
hardinparamedic: This just in: NYPD Prides itself on being corrupt and racist.Also, they can't hit the broad side of a barn.
Elegy: Fact: Institutional racism is much worse in the North than it is in the south.
diaphoresis: Elegy: Fact: Institutional racism is much worse in the North than it is in the south.The most bigoted and racist people I've ever experienced was in Michigan... not even kidding... holy crap.
StreetlightInTheGhetto: Wait this is news again, eh?http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/414/right-to -re main-silentFor 17 months, New York police officer Adrian Schoolcraft recorded himself and his fellow officers on the job, including their supervisors ordering them to do all sorts of things that police aren't supposed to do. For example, downgrading real crimes into lesser ones, so they wouldn't show up in the crime statistics and make their precinct look bad. Adrian's story first appeared as a five part series in the Village Voice, written by Graham Rayman. Schoolcraft's website looking for other cops to come forward is here. (41 minutes)Criminal Justice • Jobs/Employment • Police/REALLY worth a listen//pretty sure the unofficial quotas were mentioned in that too
JohnnyC: Stupidity isn't limited to a geographical location.
JohnnyC: diaphoresis: Elegy: Fact: Institutional racism is much worse in the North than it is in the south.The most bigoted and racist people I've ever experienced was in Michigan... not even kidding... holy crap.You find them everywhere. The north is not immune to racism by any means. That isn't to say there isn't rampant racism in the south, because there is... but it exists everywhere.Stupidity isn't limited to a geographical location.
mjbok: it happened in the the capital of understanding and forward thinking
diaphoresis: If it weren't for the black population, crime would be cut by 67%I think this guy should be mayor.
rkiller1: JohnnyC: Stupidity isn't limited to a geographical location.Okay, we get your point: white stupid, black good. Got it.
rjkline: What is the problem? Anyone with a brain has no problem figuring out who commits most crimes in America. It's really sad, but the truth isn't always easy to handle. It would be nice if the police could determine which kids are being raised without a strong father figure and parents who don't have a job. Lock these people up before they have a chance to breed!
Gdalescrboz: But I do appreciate the effort to monopolize moral superiority over the South; admit that you have a small racism problems then follow it quickly with how it pales in comparison to a place you've never visited/lived.
rkiller1: Elegy: Fact: Institutional racism is much worse in the North than it is in the south.Citation please. And could you also define "institutional racism"?As part two of this assignment, should you accept it, please document the empirically-proven benefits of diversity.No fair citing CNN or MSNBC, neither.
m00: Interesting to see what's stronger on fark... cop hate, or black-people hate.
JohnnyC: rkiller1: JohnnyC: Stupidity isn't limited to a geographical location.Okay, we get your point: white stupid, black good. Got it.No... that isn't at all what I was saying. Racist = stupid. Racism/stupidity isn't limited to a particular race of people either. Odd that you would read what I wrote as meaning that though.So... are you saying that you're racist and you feel put upon by people who think you're a farking idiot as a result?
mjbok: If this happened in the "backwards" fly-over states it would forever be a talking point of how backwards areas not on the coasts are. If it happened in the South...same thing: "see how messed up the south is, why can't it be like New York." Since it happened in the the capital of understanding and forward thinking it is relegated to "meh" status for some reason.

By "institutional racism" I specifically mean the disparity in sentencing between whites and other ethnicities, per unit of population.[i.imgur.com image 300x219]States with the highest black-to-white ratio are disproportionately located in the Northeast and Midwest, including the leading states of Iowa, Vermont, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Wisconsin. This geographic concentration is true as well for the Hispanic-to-white ratio, with the most disproportionate states being Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New York, New Hampshire, and New JerseySame pattern holds true for Hispanics.
m00: Also, if the cop were smart he just would have used one of the many different aliases society uses to avoid saying "black males aged 14-21" when that's what they really mean....urban youth......likely obama voter......gang banger...etc.
