    I was using sarcasm, Mike.

    There are lots of people in this world who use the system to make other people's lives miserable. Accuse a LEO of profiling to his CO? You've just created tons of paperwork for that offficer; a letter in his personnel file; an investigation. Whether it's true or not, it becomes a part of that officer's permanent file. Some people just love doing that. It makes them feel powerful.

    Of course it matters whether or not it's true. That's the only thing that matters.

    I thought that might be the case. You and I normally have the same view. I am just a bit tired of the racial stances reported in the news.
    Sorry I mis read your post. Should have asked if you were kidding/being sarcastic.

    With your consistent massacre of meanings within the English language, I don't know how the hell you can be a writer...
    You said, "The idea they're pulled over more has nothing to do with they break traffic laws more? No. It couldn't be that."

    "They break traffic laws more" is an unsubstantiated generalization. Can you please substantiate that generalization?

    But nobody said that.

    Jesus H. Christ. It's a question, for God's sake. For those slower at comprehension, allow me to translate: "Is it possible that the links provided that show more minorities being pulled over might be an indication that they break more traffic laws?"

    You'd better hope I don't start parsing your words looking for confrontation, PlayDrive. I'll keep you entertained for days.

    I did not say they broke more traffic laws. You're like a little gnat that got in through the screen, PlayDrive. I'm buyin' some Raid.

    Are refering to Perry? If so according to the OP link
    "The highest-paid man in entertainment is accusing a pair of white Atlanta police officers of racial profiling."
    So how does Perry go about accusing racial profiling without saying it?

    Why do you think that people need to legitimize their claims by reporting to you? I don't understand that sentiment. As far as racial profiling goes, it's nearly impossible to prove objectively. Consequently, neither you nor I KNOW if someone is racial profiling. Therefore, if you say, "He's not profiling" and I say, "Yes, he is," we both are giving OPINIONS. You're arguing that your OPINION is better than other peoples' OPINIONS and that people should prove their opinions to you. That doesn't make any sense.

    No, MaggieD is passive aggressively distorting people's arguments and I'm just letting her know.

    That is what you said. I quoted you and now you're backtracking and insulting me because I asked you a question. That's unnecessary.

    If a person is pulled over who isn't breaking the law, he may have a legitimate claim for racial profiling that should be investigated. And that's the guy that should probably file a complaint. A series of such complaints against an officer would prove a pattern. If he's ticketed for having illegally tinted windows and driving irratically, any claim of racial profiling goes out the window, in my opinion. If the person was breaking the law, he doesn't have a leg to stand on. Period. No matter what his perception.
