    I guess I knew what was coming. But see, already a few thoughtful responses so its worth it. I tried to make it abundantly clear in my post this time. Its obvious I used the title of the book as an eye catching one and to have more people look at the thread. Of course, by reading my very short post and simply clicking on the link would have explained everything but its like people are blinded by rage and in letter writing mode just by reading the thread title.

      what a loaded, inappropriate question
      Oh for Christs sake....once again...

      IT'S THE TITLE OF A BOOK!!!!! ITS NOT A QUESTION!!!!!

      Since I am already being accused of cop bashing anyway, here goes....all of the LEO who cannot comprehend the simple premise of my post when spelled out in black and white...must be easy to get away with crime on your shift, as you are oblivious to something so obvious.

        OK, first off I read the intro provided in the link. Her brief discussion of profiling dealt mainly with interstate stops, and my reply to that would be the same I made to a female black motorist one night on the side of the road......"No ma'am I didn't stop you because you're black, I stopped your vehicle for going 85mph in a 55mph zone".

        Racist claims have been made here in Indianapolis against our Metro Officers, with some accusations even being made against black Officers! Profiling has been mentioned, but it does go both ways. A young white kid in an all black neighborhood late at night, is suspect and usually a good indication of a drug buy. The other complicating factor is the sheer numbers of black suspects and victims. Here in Indy blacks comprise about 24% of the States population, but represent nearly 70% of the suspects booked in, and represent nearly 90% of homicide victims and suspects. There is a certain "Quit picking on us" mentality with these numbers, but I believe racism has little or nothing to do with it.

        I am going to buy the book to read more, but from what I gather, the message is that law-abiding minorities shouldn't get so up in arms about the thing the media calls "racial profiling" because it helps rid the streets of criminals, criminals which most likely will be preying on people in there own neighborhood anyway. Your statistics reinforce this nicely.

          That is pretty much what always happens. Rational discourse is impossible. Sensible, thoughtful remarks are buried in a sea of attacks. So why bother?

              Thanks for posting the book.

              I actually just placed an order for a used copy for $1.48. Looks like a good read.

                  I guess I find it entertaining either way. I prefer rational discourse(hallmark of the "Liberal" I guess ), but if sea of attacks it is...right back at 'em!!

                    It looks interesting, it sounds familiar as we've all been saying the same thing for years. The problem is, the people that should read this book, ( if all of her statistics are correct ) wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. Too many long held myths would go the way of the dinosaur.

                        I believe everybody is racist. The extent of the racism varies between individuals.

                          No. Cops are not racist and should be profiling.

                          But black presidents who hate cops and America named Barack Hussein Obama (not Osama) are indeed, racist.

                                I dont hear Jesse and Al speaking to this. This is the real problem. But the black community ignores stats like this..
