And Once Again, Racial Profiling

Racial Profiling is in the news again and we're going to use it as a prime example of how the left wing media sets the agenda in the City, State and Nation. Channel 7 and the Sun Times are running with what we will generously call "statistical bullshit." Here is the Channel 7 report in it's entirety:
  • Minority drivers have a greater chance of being stopped by police in Illinois than white drivers. That's according to the latest numbers from the Illinois Department of Transportation. Minorities make up about one-fourth of Illinois drivers but they accounted for nearly one-third of police traffic stops.

    Of the minorities who were pulled over nearly 69 percent got traffic tickets. Less than 60 percent of white drivers were ticketed. I-DOT says police are also more likely to search cars of minority drivers.

That's it. No numbers, no explanation, just a statement that minorities make up 1/4 of drivers but 1/3 or traffic stops and 69% of them get tickets. Damn those racist police officers! Someone call Meeks and Jakes and Jesse - both Jesses in fact!

Now check out the Sun Times article, which parrots the Channel 7 report, but includes a helpful little chart with actual numbers. Here's a stunner - total traffic stops:
  • 2004 TOTAL Stops: 1,676,043 whites
  • 2004 TOTAL Stops: 817,644 minorities
  • 2005 TOTAL Stops: 1,697,063 whites
  • 2005 TOTAL Stops: 792,263 minorities
So TWICE as many white folks were stopped as compared to minorities. But since this doesn't fit the racial profiling angle, the media goes by PERCENTAGES of the population to create the impression of profiling. Now it shows that a higher percentage of minorities get tickets and have their car searched in relation to their population. Better call the reverends again!

You want to know our opinion of this all? Too fucking bad.

Here's a little information for the so called unbiased media. First of all, most coppers have no idea what race of driver is behind the wheel when they pull over a car. They don't even care. A law is violated, someone gets pulled over. Secondly, driver conduct determines quite a bit of how you get treated - the "Golden Rule" and treat others as you wish to be treated? If we pull over any driver and they are polite, respectful, have all of their paperwork in order and current license, sticker and insurance, guess what? THEY GET A BREAK! Seriously! It's called "discretion" and we use it all the time. Here's the flip side - you give us lip and attitude, don't carry a license, never had insurance on a car that isn't registered to you and when you rolled down the window it smelled like a cannabis packaging factory? You are getting tickets, you are getting your car tossed and you are going to jail if we find anything.

We'll let the good reverends explain where this whole attitude of "you're just pulling me over because I'm [insert color here]" comes from. Racial profiling our ass. Look at those numbers again - white people pulled over UP by 23,000, minorities DOWN by 25,000, all in the course of one year.

Gov. BlagoJAGOFF just extended the Statistical traffic stop study for another 4 years, saying it was needed and necessary and then spouted off a bunch of election year bullshit to appease BLACKS and garner votes.

Look at the stats in the Dept's news release; I'd be complaining that the police aren't stopping enough people in minority communities based on the fact that there are far more police officers patrolling minority communities than white communitites.

Perhaps minorities violate traffic laws more often than whites, just like they do every other law? If the coppers in 007,011,015,005 etc. had the time and energy to write as many as were deserved the numbers would be through the roof. In the ghetto, driving is considered a "right" not a privilege.

Is it still racial profiling when you know that the black driver will have a suspended d/l, no insurance, and the plates probably won't come back to the car? Or is it still racial profiling when the black driver speeds and disregards every other rule of the road?

Bingo!!!!!! to the poster who stated what is never mentioned in any of these studies. High Crime areas have more police especially in Chicago. I do not know of a high crime area that is majority white. Simple math to all the assholes who can't expcept reality or common sense. More cops more tickets. Less cops less tickets.

The liberal left who has an agenda, never mention or even think about something called facts. I'll give them a fact from last night. I stopped 9 or 10 cars last night. Every driver was black but one. Every driver except 1 didn't have a license or it was suspended. I won't keep you guessing as to which driver did have a valid license. The non black guy had a valid license. I didn't write any tickets last night. I'm in tact/gangs so I don't write tickets unless the guy is a total JO. Think of how often coppers let somebody go thats not reported. I didn't do any green cards last night. U can't give a break for suspended or no DL.

The assholes in the media have no idea of whats really going on out there. Never mind that somebody broke the law. Everything must come to a perfect breakdown of race,tickets, and arrests. Those socialist dreamers will bring this country to its demise. I hope I'm dead by then.

Let's see a study of minorities (illegal Mex) that don't have dl's or have susp/revked dl's.

If they never GOT a dl then they just don't know how to drive, and would PROBABLY violate more traffic laws.

Ok, guys, here is how you balance it. Every one that works in 16, 17, 8, 22, 19, 18, etc just start HAMMERING the piss out of WHITEY.

Write him for everything thing you can find. When you hand him the 8 tickets tell him that POLITICIANS, THE MEDIA, and NORTHWESTERN U, feel that his free ride is done, that TOO many black folk get too many tickets, and that you have to even the "numbers" out.

No, no, no...I live in Bridgeport. WHITEY as you choose to call us would never stand for this type of "hammering." I assure you if we start getting bothered by our local police, we will report their profiling to our Alderman and Cmdr Roy. Police in our area know that we can get things expunged and that includes parking tickets and traffic citations. Nice try though!

Actually Bridgeport and Canaryville are separate villages if you will? The two are not considered to being the same and yes, the poster is correct, if police ticket them unfairly they will gripe. Bridgeport is a classy place mostly made up of Italians and upper class citizens. Our expansion is phenomenal and richly deserved. We are the upper elite and many of us have ties to City Hall. Canaryville is made up of Irish drunkards. Don't call me Canaryville! Remember too, the Sox are bridgeportians!!!

Bridgeport? Upper class elite? YOU are full of yourself jackass. Apparently you never hear the gunshots going off near 31st Street and Morgan? Far from elite pal! The cops don't bother with you whinny ass snobs over tickets, because they are TOO BUSY dealing with the gangs in your beloved Bridgeport. You must live in a bubble, if you think Bridgeport is so great? It'd being over ran by hispanic gangs and you call yourself "richly deserved?" Hahaha...
Hey super sleuth--the CHICAGO White Sox are not called Bridgeportian Sox either.

If they want stats. how about the number of offenders who are either a one or a four who commit agg. batts or homicides in the city to go along with the victims that are either ones or fours. Hey d-unit how about some of these numbers. I bet that there are not to many offenders who are twos who are offenders for agg. batt. or homicides. Two are more likely to be victims in those cases. Can we get an answer to these questions, then send those stats off to the media to go along with the racial profiling stats that they can stick up their asses!!!

I live near Blue Island and 23 St. I proud display my "We Call Police" sticker in my home. I do call too, especially when I see gangs around the corners. NOW I witness the latino gangbangers hitting on girls on the streets. We call the police, but nothing happens. When will this stop? I father of three girls and want to know the police will protect them. I speak to policeman about this and he say the girls may be getting pimped out and that's why they be hit. No, no good. I want action and more profiling if that will make diffrence. Thank you.

The Spanish Cobras have been looking to further their prostitution ring near the area of Blue Island/23rd. They are targeting young spanish decent females ranging in age from 18-25. These are typical gang bangers, but they are showing a desire to "pimp" these girls more. This is a problem for all living near these hoodlums. There just are not enough po's out there who wish to stop these trouble-makers. Most coppers are too busy messing with the Kings. Personally, the idea of our girls being approached by these Cobras to perform for them is sickening. The district police are fully aware of their activity. Pilsen is being protected. Pimping in Pilsen is not a new concept. It's just another problem. Rest assured, the gangbangers are scared to pimp these girls when the Beat patrol cars are out. A little more police near Blue Island/23rd will curb their activities. Even if you just take a personal near the above location, we might be able to stop the Cobras from pimping. Just a thought...from a friendly cop giving his two cents worth

I have an idea to stop the profiling and all the crime occuring in various parts of the city. Subject the DOC to military strikes using F-16's. That should eliminate the problem. "1111 Squad, Fire misson over. " Dont have to worry about ticket anymore.

All this racial profiling would go by the wayside if we could do a couple of things. If the Illinois Secretary of state would release the number of Suspended D/Ls in Illinois and break them down by racial group, now that would be interesting. Also if there was a way to look up calls for service and see what neighborhoods call for the Police the most. I would be willing to bet a paycheck that Black and Hispanic neighborhoods call WAY more often then White Neighborhoods. Also, as a previous post touched on, if the city would post how many crimes have been reported and who the listed Offenders are for each index crime and who the victims are that would be an eye opener. I know, I live in a dream world. The above stats would blow away the myth of racial profiling that is being presented by the "minority" communities and the drive-by liberal media.

Do you think that more black people are stopped because more cops are in the balck areas of the city. Havent seen TRU, SOS, Gang Teams, or Tactical Teams in the white areas. I guess there is not enough crime there. Hey is that wrong? Telling more police to go where the crime is? Good management or racist?

Sorry to bust your bubble, you must be a NU grad, right?

NU requested and received the grant from the govt to perform the study.

The fact is that many more police officers are patrolling black and hispanic neighborhoods. That is where the gangs, guns and drugs are. Another fact, although "not politically correct" is that blacks and hispanics tend to violate more traffic laws. They tend to have expired temp reg. false temp reg. expired plates, no plates, one headlight, no headlights, broken windows, drive hazzard-dilap. vehicles, drive with the music too loud, drive too fast, run lights, no turn signal, don't wear seatbelts, don't have their children in child safety seats(instead their children are observed climbing on the dashboard), drive with their seat leaning too far back, drink and drive, drive with open liquor, and drive recklessly. And when the police notice these violations we then find out that they have no DL, Susp. DL, no insurance and warrants. It's just a fact and I'm sorry if it offends someone. If the police wrote every voliator and did not give "plays" the stat keepers would really have some numbers to report!

You know the difference between Bridgeport and Canaryville? In Bridgeport they take take the dishes out of the sink before they take a piss. ohhhhhh snap!

On a serious note, both neighborhoods have a big gang problem and are not the garden spots some try to portray, even as the price of housing soars in both hoods.
