HOLY BATSHIT, WHAT AN EARTH-SHATTERING REVELATION!
When claims, such as the above, clash with my own personal experience, the accounts of others I've spoken to/read, FBI statistics and victims surveys - I'm inclined to reject them as unfounded and biased. Blacks and Hispanics commit way more crime (per capita), especially violent crime, and this is why they are stopped more.
"...my own personal experience..."
Yeah, sounds like some White boy got his ass beat ONCE (probably for shooting his mouth off) and now he thinks that people of color commit way more crime and violent crime than Whites.
I am not the only one Joan Wagar was poisoning three family members died within a three year period during Joan Wagar's use of poison.
On March 26th 2007 I caught Joan Wagar and Eric Carlson along with his partners in law enforcement breaking into my home and they planted child porn on our computer and they poisoned my coffee pot and coffee cup and I caught them in the act on a audio recorder.
They also killed a female that morning and they were planting evidence in my home framing me for their crimes and they bragged about it at Clackamas Walmart to Walmart employees.
I caught them in the act of committing their crimes and I caught them bragging about it and I caught them verbally giving me the blame after the fact using flyers and word of mouth.
They killed a missing runaway and they were printing flyers giving me the blame, they call this type of framing "Pedofying" meaning they do whatever they have to do to give their target a pedophile reputation and they commit the crimes using photo doubles and planting evidence in their targets home.
I was a plasma donor when Joan Wagar was poisoning me and Eric Carlson was calling my wife by the nick name Mrs Dash in love letters so they are not trying very hard to hide their guilt because no one with a badge in Oregon gives a damn about victims.
On March 26th 2007 Eric Carlson and his partner John Ray murdered a child and they broke into my home to plant evidence framing me for it and I caught them on a audio recorder, the child yelled out and Eric Carlson and John Ray silenced her and it is also on the audio recording.
It's hard to draw conclusions from these numbers. We see blacks searched at twice the rate of whites but their contraband rate is still 3/4 that of whites. There are way too many unknown variables and background facts for an armchair jockey like myself to say whether or not this indicates the level of searching is appropriate.
However, I would strongly question the use of "implicit racism" and "institutional racism" constructs in assessing police performance, since if you go back to the academic work establishing these concepts you'll see that they are defined in terms of the sorts of issues were examining here, i.e. implicit and institutional racism play a role in these disparities by definition. (This is especially true of the institutional racism idea, but even implicit racism... tell a cop who works on gang issues that he or she unconsciously associates blacks with violence, and they'd likely tell you, if they could be candid, that it's quite conscious, and based on the reality of their work.) So finding that these forms of racism "play a role" in these disparities tells you precisely nothing, since these disparities ARE BY DEFINITION these forms of racism... (does that make sense?)
Which isn't to say these aren't important factors that should be examined, but the devil is very much in the details, and here on the left we've had serious serious problems with these academic concepts "escaping into the wild" and becoming excuses to yell "racist" at whomever we want... even though institutional and implicit racism are actually very subtle in a lot of ways, e.g. stereotype threat, social distance, etc. Calls for a therapist rather than an exorcist, if you get my drift. So we should focus on what's actually happening, and disregard these labels. Explicit racism, however, is intolerable.
@rhayat: actually, the vast majority of violent crime as reported in the national crime victim survey is simple assault and other variations on fistfights. These tend to be done by whites, and so even though blacks are more highly represented in robberies, the overall rates of violent crime commission are very balanced across races.
Got a problem with that DamosA?
Clackamas Walmart employees printed flyers because of this crime!
Eric Carlson and John Ray had a buyer for those photographs meet up with them at Clackamas Walmart where they discussed the details of their crimes!
On that same day Clackamas Walmart employees printed out flyers because of the crimes committed by Eric Carlson and John Ray!
