    You have no point.

    We already know that holds true here.

    Something isn't right, alright...with your entire analysis.

    Why the racialism?
    It is a very racialized situation down there in Ferguson if you haven't noticed.

    New York City:


    47.8 percent of the city’s officers are white, 28.7 percent Hispanic, 17.9 percent black and 5.4 percent Asian.


    The Missouri attorney general's office issues annual reports that show the Ferguson police force is almost twice as likely to conduct searches of African Americans during traffic stops. But searches of whites are more likely to result in the discovery of drugs and other contraband. Statewide numbers follow a similar trend.

    Perhaps blacks in Missouri **** up twice as much?

    Don't read much do you? Here I'll post it again for you to read... hopefully correctly this time:

    The Missouri attorney general's office issues annual reports that show the Ferguson police force is almost twice as likely to conduct searches of African Americans during traffic stops. But searches of whites are more likely to result in the discovery of drugs and other contraband. Statewide numbers follow a similar trend.

    Quick quiz on what you just read...

    Of the two races being described here by the Missouri attorney general... which race is most likely to be ****ing up more?

    Made so by the racialists.

    Think about it: a town that is 67% black is run by a buncha racist white boys?

    Uh that's just two departments. And just so happened to be for two of the largest and most important in the country, thus having the ability to recruit as well. So if we're going to go this route, let's look at the big picture:

    BJS: Local Police

    So I don't have specifics, but we know that 75% are white, and the piece says that 10% are hispanic. Leaving 15% for blacks then? We're still talking about a much smaller pool to draw from. And I doubt a lot of people are looking to go to St. Louis...

    Fun Fact though... for all the crap we're giving LAPD, did you know the majority of them aren't White? Latinos are currently the largest ethnic group on the police force..

    Previously:

    Sounds like blacks aren't interested....
    You can't force someone to take a job they don't want sooo... what the hell are you talking about? you can't fill a quota with people who didn't want the job in the first place.
    The two are not comparable.
    I asked how forced quotas show him to be wrong? You haven't answered that.

    Secondly, how in the world to you think a lack of interest in a local police force compares to federal quotas in hiring? Or did you forget that DC is Fed?
    It is like you are saying that the feds got a majority of those interested.
