- •The cops repeatedly used racial slurs yet over six years, only one instance was correctly recorded as such. All other instances were misclassified as lesser offenses.🙁
- •Black residents were stopped three times as often as white residents.☹️
- •The cops were told to make up any reason to question a group of black teens, and never treat them like citizens.😫
- •In six years, the BPD used force almost 3,000 times and only one time was found in violation.😒
- •A son with no criminal record was arrested in front of his home when he was with his mother.😠
- •44 percent of the stops in six years were made in the neighborhoods that house 11 percent of the population.😦Most men were stopped 10 times each, seven say they were stopped more than 30.
- •The cops tasered an 85 pound female juvenile who was cooperating. They were accusing her of a "history of selling CDs."😠
- •A young black woman was cavity searched in public for a routine traffic stop. 😠😠😠Broken headlight. No reason to ever check anyone's anus for a broken headlight.
- •The arrest warrant TEMPLATE was auto-filled with the description "BLACK MALE." One had to manually go in and change it if they happened to arrest anyone who wasn't a black male. 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡Systemic racism isn't just in our minds. Black people aren't born more prone to criminal activity. I'm about ready to quit earth when I hear this bull.
