Audit Finds Portland's Gang Patrol Officers Disproportionately Target African Americans


From the article : “most gang shootings in Portland [are] committed by African American gangs” and that these gangs mostly affected African American communities, PPB offered no data to back up that statement.

Really, Merc? You think the PPB needs to offer you data to make you believe that statement?
Old Hitchens quote nicely describes how to deal with PPB's lack of data to justify profiling:

'That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.'
